For the past four years successive Australian governments have chosen to make people seeking safety suffer in offshore detention. The men, women and children abandoned in offshore detention are in immediate danger with nowhere safe to go.

So on July 19, Common Grace will join with hundreds of others to gather across the country at candlelit vigils, shining a light in the dark. We will stand with those who have suffered, mourn those who have lost their lives and demand everyone on Manus and Nauru be brought to safety.

Events are springing up all over the country, as people who care bring their creativity and talents together and organise local vigils to make sure those on Manus and Nauru know we will not abandon them.

So far there are vigils planned in every capital city:

There are also more regional vigils happening across the country:

Someone is even organising a vigil at the Australian Embassy in The Philippines.

Will you join us on July 19 at a vigil near you?
