Kids off Nauru
Dozens of children and their families continue to be subjected to the cruel effects of detention on Nauru. Recently there have been repeated incidents of suicide attempts, including children dousing themselves in petrol. Some children have given up eating, and many bang their bodies repeatedly against walls in their distress.
Christians in Australia can not sit by while this situation continues. We would never allow our children to grow up like this, and so we must treat others as we would like us and our children to be treated.
So join us on Friday November 2 as we come together at cathedrals across Australia to pray, to lament, and to witness to a better way for children on Nauru. We come from many different traditions, but on Nov 2 we’ll unite together to remind ourselves, our leaders, and our nation that followers of Jesus will not remain silent about the gross injustices that have been committed again children and their families on Nauru, as well as men on Manus Island.
