Messages from the kids

Hello lovely FreethechildrenNAURU friends

Hello lovely FreethechildrenNAURU friends,
The children managing this page send you their heartfelt thanks for all your kind words and offers of assistance. They were overwhelmed, delighted and a bit confused by the volume of your support. They never expected it having felt forgotten for so long.
The issue with Facebook has been resolved as an adult in Australia has provided their details as Administrator. The children still manage the page as Editors but under the protection of trusted adults that they know. Thank you for all the offers to help moderate and administer the page, but I’m sure you understand the risks of providing such access to people unknown to the children. This page is their initiative and we aim to keep it that way.
The teenage Editors of this page have also regrouped and recruited more children in Nauru, inside and outside the camp, to assist with the page management and will try to respond to as many comments as possible. Do keep in mind that the internet in Nauru is very slow and they have to use proxy servers to access Facebook which slows it down even more. So even if your comment is not replied to, it has been read and appreciated. It is for this reason also, that the private message function has been removed from the page.
They have also requested the assistance of trusted adults to monitor the page for trolls. Out of over 24,000 likes in 48 hours, 21 users have been blocked for posting awful comments. The children want this page to be a peaceful and positive space and request that you do not reply to negative comments, they will be deleted and blocked by adult moderators.
Thank you also friends for the many generous offers of gifts for the children. We are in the process of compiling a mailing list from those that have emailed freethechildrennauru@gmail.com and will email out instructions on how to send gifts to Nauru and other detention centres in Australia as soon as possible. This needs to be managed in an equitable manner to ensure all children on Nauru are included.
That’s it from me, now back to the children …..

Mary Blight Thanks so much for the information! Good work kids! I love this fb page. Long may it last! PS.

They were not exactly welcome here when they arrived, but my ancestor went on to live a good life. heart emoticon

Kelso Kel To the children on Nauru. I am so sorry our government has locked you up. You are so very welcome in Australia and in my family’s home. I hope you are free to run and play very soon.

Skye Starkey

Skye Starkey When there were Bosnian refugees in Australia my sisters & I sent letters & gifts to Bosnian refugee children. Now I’m an adult & a mother I would like to know if there is any way to exchange letters with asylum seekers. Is anyone aware of any programs available for this?

Steve Saul

Steve Saul Wonderful, wonderful news. Keep spreading the love.

Katie Smith

Katie Smith Great work. You know, it is so good to see the vast numbers of supporters do actually out-number the haters. This is something I always believed but it’s hard to prove when the haters are so vocal. They are the noisy minority … something for our politicians to take note of, don’t you think?

Lucinda McKay

Lucinda McKay That is why it is important to block the haters. Trolls get a thrill out of hijacking a thread, getting everyone to waste time and energy arguing with them. Blocking them gives a chance for the supporters to be seen.

Ruth Leahy

Ruth Leahy Yes. Never understand why some Admins don’t just BLOCK bad people. One Strike, Out. No such thing as Freedom of Speech or Benefit of the Doubt for obviously Toxic people.

Gai Stern

Gai Stern Most Australians (everyone except indigenous Australians) came here from somewhere else. If we were born here, our parents or their parents came from somewhere else. ‘We’ only go back 200 years at most. In other words, we are ALL boat people and we know that what is happening to you is unfair. There are far more of us on your side than you think. And we care.
