The Refugee Day Quiz
for Aussie Politicians
Dear Member of State or Federal Parliament & Houses of Review,
This is the Project SafeCom 2003 World Refugee Day Aussie Tourist Quiz, initially compiled for tourists and backpackers visiting Australia. It forms part of our "Airport Action", alerting visitors to Australia about the state of affairs within Australia in relation to its treatment of refugees and asylum seekers.
In the introduction to that version of our quiz, we welcome visitors to Australia in the following way:
"Welcome to our beautiful country 'Down Under', the great country of Australia that people talk about all over the world ... We're proud of our vast country, where, according to our National Anthem, we "have boundless plains to share".
We hope you enjoy your stay, we hope you see all the things we're famous for - such as our kangaroos (Seen any yet? There're everywhere!), the many wonders of Western Australia's vast outback, the obligatory trip to the North-West, your trip to "the Outback", and we hope you'll be "going bush" in safety."
Only for politicians
The quiz is only open to overseas visitors to Australia, and the special version on this page is only open to sitting Australian politicians like yourself.
You need to complete the Quiz yourself - the work cannot be completed by a staffer or your electorate officer. We trust you will see to this.
