Local Kids Ring Bells For Kids Off Nauru

Local children from around Eurobodalla joined other concerned locals to ring the church bells out last Friday evening for the 38 children remaining on Nauru.

"These amazing local kids have come out to show their support for the kids in Nauru. Even they understand that these children and their families are just like us. We all want our families to be safe, free and together, and so do they", said concerned Tuross resident, Pearl Cavender-Cole.

The children were joined by other concerned locals last Friday evening to ring the bells at both St John's Church in Moruya and St Paul's Church in Narooma.

A short vigil followed where the children and others lit candles in support for the urgent evacuation of children and their families from Nauru.

The Reverend Linda Chapman of St John's Anglican Church said "We invite everyone, not just church goers, to join us in this action every Friday evening at 5pm in Moruya and Narooma until all the refugees are brought to safety from Nauru and Manus."

More every day aussies are joining the call from medical professionals, leading Australians, politicians, comedians and celebrities, like The Wiggles and Jimmy Barnes, and school kids. Teachers and students in some high schools plan a "walk out" for Kids off Nauru on 20 November if the children and families are not brought to Australia by then.

The #BlueForNauru movement is also asking people to wear blue every Tuesday until all the kids are off Nauru.

For more information about any of these actions and what you can do to help get the kids off Nauru, please contact the Refugee Action Collective Eurobodalla at raceurobodalla@gmail.com.
