Kids on Nauru

A group of young Aussie kids have appeared in an Advertising Campaign launched today asking the Prime Minister of Australia 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.”

“Protection of individual liberty is at the heart of Australian democracy. When there exist powers that have the capacity to interfere with individual liberty, they should be accompanied by checks and balances sufficient to engender public confidence that those powers are being exercised with integrity.” – Mick Palmer, Inquiry into the Cornelia Rau Matter, July 2005
