The Montmorency Asylum Seekers Support Group (MASSG) aims to support people who have sought asylum in Australia and to defend and promote their right to do so. We do this by assisting individuals in our community, by contributing to the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre (ASRC), by working to raise awareness and compassion within our community, and by campaigning for change in government policies and practices.

Our current campaigns


As described in our newsletters, we submitted to the Senate enquiry into the Government’s proposed changes to citizenship law – our submissions joined 10,000 others opposed to the changes. Two (2!) were in favor. Read about it here.

We’re trying to talk with Labor

MASSG strongly believes the ‘bipartisan’ support for cruel policies to asylum seekers must end, and that Labor must confront the fact that its silence allows those policies to continue. We have written individually to every Labor Parliamentarian. We have received an answer from the Shadow Minister for all of them, and just three bothered to reply individually.  Read those letters here.


This is what we do.
