Victory has been claimed by Paul Toner

January 2014, 25

A letter has been sent to his 140,000 supporters by Paul Toner who started the Community Run campaign.


140,000 supporters around the world supported Paul Toner and he won the campaign and was able to stop Ali Choudhry from being deported and gave Ali and his partner Matt the right to live in Australia.

Ali and Matt were facing a very unpredictable future last week. Ali and his Australian man are in a long term relationship and Ali was facing a possibility of being sent back to Pakistan. Ali has only lived in Pakistan as a child, he is not able to write or read the pakistani language, and it is a criminal offence to be a homosexual in that country.

Paul Toner had begun the campaign 6 days ago and didn't realise it would become so big. The story of Matt and Ali was heard by Paul Toner and his wife over the radio and they thought that the should help the couple in some way. They thought that every human being had the right to be happy and Ali and Matt should be given a fair chance.

Paul Toner researched the story of Ali and Matt online and created a petition. He posted it on his Facebook wall, and was of the intuition that it might get a few hundred signs.

In 6 days though the petition grew tremendously and had 140,000 supporters. The bridging visa of Ali has been confirmed by the Immigration department reports ABC. Ali and Matt can now continue living together on the bridging visa and wait for the hearings at the Migration Review Tribunal.

The campaign turned out to be the biggest and fastest campaign for CommunityRun. Immigration Minister Scott Morrison was sent a 140,000 signatures petition, with emails being sent to his office and tweets being sent. The immigration department was foxed to give Ali a bridging visa to continue living in Australia.

The fight is not yet over though for Matt and Ali. Ali will not be able to work in Australia on this visa and what will happen in the appeal is not certain. But Ali was prevented from being deported and the couple were given a chance to live together and be happy.
