Ban Royal Brunei Airlines from Australia

Both the Government and Opposition should commit to a ban on Royal Brunei from flying into and out of Australia. No other country who kills gays flies to Australia: we need to ban RBA.


Why is this important?

The last thing you expect to happen if you board a flight from Australia - as a law abiding citizen - is to run the real risk of falling victim to a shocking law that could potentially see you jailed, or even executed. 
But that is the reality for LGBTIQ Australians now Brunei has enacted laws that could see gay people stoned to death. 
The reason? Once you are in a Brunei registered aircraft the laws of Australia won't help you - you are subject to their laws, and this law could see gay people killed. 
This petition is calling for the Federal Government to immediately cancel Royal Brunei Airlines right to land in Australia. Why should a country that executes gays be allowed to operate here and their national carrier place our citizens at risk?
No other group in the community would be expected to put up with this. We are asking for the Minister of Transport to show some courage and make a stand against this sort of hate and show the world this is not the Australian way.

How it will be delivered

We hope to get enough coverage in media, social media and beyond to ensure that both the Federal government and the Opposition commit to banning the flag carrier from Australia.
