Steve MacDonald
Steve MacDonald I had two overwhelming feelings watching this program. The first was how stupid we Australians are to not see the value of these remarkable children/young adults. The second feeling occoured with Scott Morrison’s apperance. I wished he would die, now. What has become of our society that we allow people to be treated the way we treat refugees?

Miriam Bos Hope Malcolm Turnbull watched this. Where is the compassion in this world and in our government!

Sue Hassell Thinking of all of you there, you are never forgotten in my home, One day I hope you find true peace and safety. That you heal and become even more remarkable than you are now. That you can grow, inspir all who meet you and help ensure what has happened never happens again. Stay safe and keep being strong

I am extremely upset for all the refugees there but especially the kids who have no hope anymore.

Sue Middlewood Did Malcolm watch? How does he feel? How can this be allowed to continue?

Jennifer Eaton
Jennifer Eaton I cried when I visited a concentration camp, I cried after going to the apartheid museum and I cried after watching this program. Have we not learnt anything about humanity and atrocities committed in our name? Look what our government is doing in our name and with our taxes! It’s a game of political football.

Donna Chapman
Donna Chapman This was so heartbreaking to watch.. why are these lives not worthy enough?

Trish Campbell
Trish Campbell Thank you to those wonderful teachers advocating for the children, thank you those beautiful brave children who have the courage to speak out and tell their story. Now we must act to bring the children to Australia and stop the suffering. As an educator I cannot stand by and watch education denied. Lets have The Rose Cafe in Australia.

Rosalind Kingston-Lee
Rosalind Kingston-Lee Just finished watching this and yes to all the haters my door is open as should Australia be to all of those who have been recognised as genuine refugees. Bring them here.

Liz O’Sullivan Thank you to these Save the Children teachers for caring for these students and for speaking out. You are brave and compassionate. I send good wishes and hugs to the children of Nauru. I’m sorry for what you have endured. Stay strong and know that people here care for you and only hope the best for you.

Lauren Shay
Lauren Shay How can any one, any government, treat children this way? It is utterly shameful and for the government to shun responsibility and say it’s Nauru’s problem is a disgrace. This is child abuse sanctioned by our morally corrupt “leaders”.

Jill Robinson I saw it on ABC TV this evening – I couldn’t bear to watch again. Absolutely heartbreaking to see and hear. I commend those who spoke out. And condemn our politicians who enable this outrageous, despicable treatment.

Rosemary Warner
Rosemary Warner Free them now particularly Shamin! Such beautiful children too

Kylie Elliott
Kylie Elliott What can we do???! Can we find a way to get in contact with the kids and offer communication. I’m a teacher. I would more than willingly provide lessons and would love to send them stuff. I know it is not an end solution but something.

Monica Elith
Monica Elith I am so ashamed and angry. There is room, room in our country and I know for many of us room in our homes, for these beautiful, articulate, precious young people. They have suffered too much. Shame, shame on Australia.
