We want to make the German government aware that many Germans are stranded in Australia and can’t get home without their support due to Covid-19


We can’t get back home to Germany, since all the international airports have been shut down due to Covid-19. Even transit isn’t possible anymore. All flights have been cancelled and airlines are not helping any passengers. We want to get more attention so that the German government will start a Programm to get all Germans back home.

Thank you for your support, Annika Dannemann from Bad Teinach-Zavelstein

Nobody wants to get stuck in a place far from home, especially if you are being told not to move around anymore with hotels and such all shut down.

No CONTRA argument yet.
