20/8/18 – Human rights groups set deadline to get all refugee children off Nauru. Coalition of NGOs and charities calls for children to be brought to Australia by 20 November
“We abhor any form of unfair vulnerability created by a situation and this is actually of the Australian parliament’s making,” said World Vision Australia’s chief executive Claire Rogers.
“There’s a quite clear contravention of the refugee convention, and also we believe very strongly a breach of the rights of the child.”
Summary of campaign
#KidsOffNauru is a sector wide campaign calling for Prime Minister Scott Morrison and Opposition Leader Bill Shorten to act to bring the 119 children and their families currently detained on Nauru to safety in Australia before Universal Children’s Day on November 20, 2018.
It’s 93 days to get all children out of detention on Nauru and into safety.
What does the #KIDSOFFNAURU campaign want?
The children should be either resettled in Australia or in another suitable country which welcomes them. Children in detention should not be discriminated against and must be given a fair chance for survival and development. All decisions taken about offshore, indefinite detention must first and foremost consider the best interest of the child. This is to ensure that these children will be able to face their futures with certainty and finally start to pursue their hopes and dreams.
Whatever the solution, locking up children is not it.
