Refugee Advocates’ Petition to Effect Social Change

Yesterday, KidsOffNauru campaigners handed Scott Morrison a petition boasting 170,000 signatures to free remaining refugee children off Nauru. Joining them in protest, outside parliament, was Independent Kerryn Phelps, other notable politicians and refugee advocates.

Since the campaign launch in August this year, numbers of refugee children on the island have dropped, though as of Sunday there are still 11 remaining and their future is in question.

Julia Carr-Catzel spoke to George Newhouse, Principle Solicitor, National Justice Project about the power of community action to affect change.
