The government is under increasing pressure to bring all the children being held in Australia’s offshore detention regime on Nauru to Australia immediately for urgent medical care. Another five kids, with their parents, were evacuated over the weekend. This is another step in the effort to get all asylum seekers and refugees off Nauru and Manus Island.
Next Tues, 27 Nov, at 10.30am, local and interstate supporters will be rallying at Parliament House to intensify this call and to hand over a petition to parliament. Canberra RAC is co-sponsoring this rally with the #KidsOffNauru alliance, led by World Vision. Please join this call, and, if you can, come along to the rally to show your support.
