Migrants to Australia to be redirected from Sydney to regional areas

As Sydney house prices continue to surge exponentially, the Australian government is planning to redirect migrants to regional areas.

Anthony Roberts, the NSW Planning Minister, had earlier expressed apprehensions that Sydney’s burgeoning population was having on its home prices. With Australia’s largest city’s population set to reach 9.9 million within two decades, 660,000 new homes are needed to accommodate them.

Two-thirds of Sydney’s population rise would reportedly be driven by foreign and interstate migrants.

Alex Hawke, Federal Assistant Immigration Minister, was quoted by the Daily Telegraph as saying that one of the Turnbull government’s  major priorities was looking at ways of goading migrants to settle in places other than Sydney - a city which has seen its house prices jump by 16 percent in the past one year.

He said that the government appreciated the fact that Sydney will continue being an attractive destination for people from abroad and within Australia, but they were working with state and regional governments to collaborate with them to see how migrants could be attracted to other regional centres.

According to him, regions which were identified included the Central Coast and Goulburn could be developed to make them more luring to migrants.

Immigrant and ethnic groups in Australia support initiative for multicultural assimilation

The multicultural statement of the Turnbull government in Australia that focuses on integrating immigrants and ethnic groups in the nation on the foundation of social unity and national identity has been supported by the diverse immigrant and ethnic groups.

The statement titled ‘Multicultural Australia- Successful, Strong, and United’ was supported by the Migration Council Australia. This is an approval of the social and economic significance of immigrants in contributing to Australia, said the council.

Carla Wilshire, the Chief Executive of Migration Council Australia said that the statement is a commemoration of the consecutive multicultural regimes that have resulted in flourishing, safe and united Australia.

It is also commendable that the need for successive governments to support immigrants in becoming self-sufficient and dynamic members of the Australian society has been affirmed by the statement of the government, said Carla Wilshire.

Malcolm Turnbull had made a statement in Australian Parliament that stressed the need to assimilate immigrants along with unity and citizenship as fundamental principles. This was the first statement by the federal government to highlight the influence of terrorists on the Australian society and recognized freedom of an individual inclusive of freedom of speech as one among the fundamental values of Australia.

The statement has also been welcomed by the Settlement Council of Australia. The statement also called for modifications to the way in which multiculturalism is defined to include immigrants, white Australians, indigenous Australians and ethnic minorities.

The Chairperson of the Settlement Council of Australia Dewani Bakkum has said that the statement is very appropriate and timely on the occasion of the celebration of Harmony Day and recognizes the contribution of diverse cultures and immigrants to the Australia society.

The commitment of Australia as a nation to welcome diverse immigrants and the unilateral support of politicians across party lines in Australia in keeping up a harmonious, inclusive and welcoming society was praiseworthy, said Dewani Bakkum.

 The Chairman of the Federation of Ethnic Communities Councils Joe Caputo has said that the statement on multiculturalism is recognition of the efforts to keep up and consolidate the society in Australia as a multicultural, harmonious, prosperous and inclusive one. He also demanded that the government comes up with concrete initiatives as well as a national language policy to strengthen the multicultural fabric of Australian society.

Newly arrived immigrants in Australia are united by the bond of street art

Australia of late has seen a polarization of public views regarding immigration. With the aim of overhauling public perception regarding immigration, 300 newly arrived immigrants and refugees in Australia have collaborated with four top street artists in Australia to create themed murals.

Unveiled later this week in the center of the financial district in Sydney, the murals are a description of images inspired by the native landscapes and beauty and words that convey feelings regarding immigration. They also include the prized objects that the refugees had carried along with them to Australia.

Kaff-eine, the former criminal lawyer in Australia who has taken up street art said that the project aimed at highlighting the resemblance between the native land and the immigrated nation. The street art project also intends to eliminate increasing distrust regarding immigrants in Australia.

The former criminal lawyer turned street artist said that the misconception regarding immigration was a phenomenon not limited to Australia, alone, it was relevant everywhere.

Immigration and border security have emerged as highly debated issues in Australian politics and have dominated the past elections. It has also resulted in indefinite detention policy for individuals who seek to arrive in Australia by boats.

Australia’s immigration system based on points and policies for offshore detention have even been noticed by the international community. In fact, recently the US President Donald Trump was full of praise for the Australian immigration policies and called for similar policies being implemented in the US too.

The four street artists also include Ben Frost, Regan Tamanui, and Brad Eastman. The four street artists have organized workshops for newly arrived youths from nations such as Syria, Democratic Republic of Congo, South Sudan, Myanmar, Afghanistan, Iraq and several other nations across the world.

Notwithstanding the huge linguistic and cultural differences and shyness, the immigrants were united by a common objective, said Kaff-eine.

The immigrants were of the view that irrespective of their pasts, they were currently Australian residents and this was the common binding thread, added Kaff-eine. It is tough for people to get angry with others when they have shared similarities.

One of the immigrants painted the words free and young and was, in fact, unaware of the fact initially that these words were a part of the national anthem of Australia also.
