A group of young Aussie kids appear in a new advertising campaign pleading with the Prime Minister to save more than 100 young children in desperate trouble on Nauru.
Doctors who have visited the children are saying they will start dying if the government doesn’t save them and bring them to Australia.
The former head of mental services on Nauru called their treatment a ‘form of torture.’
The ad has been with the Prime Minister for 10 days, with a request to meet with these children and explain why Australia is persecuting innocent children.
The Prime Minister has not responded to their request for a meeting, although its makers say they are ‘hopeful he understands the message’.
President of the Australian Council of Churches, Bishop Philip Huggins, and filmmaker Richard Keddie (Ride Like A Girl, Hawke, Little Fish, Oddball) have helped these children express their fears on film.
The is appearing on social media with the support of a vast network of community groups.
The children in the ad care desperately about the atrocious treatment being handed out by Aussies to innocent children.
A spokespersons said, ‘many of the kids in the ad have been supporting the Nauru children from afar for a number of years and are deeply distressed that children in our care can be tortured like this and perhaps left to die.
‘They cannot understand that Aussies could do this, and want the kids saved, brought to Australia, where they can heal and recover the enchantment of childhood.
‘They do not wish to play politics. They just understand the difference between right and wrong.’
