A commitment to the Glasgow Statement is a commitment for children and young people’s futures – the Australian Government must now step up and end support for fossil fuel projects at home 

Plan International Australia welcomes the Australian Government signing onto the Glasgow Statement at COP28 yesterday, ruling out funding of overseas fossil fuel projects.

Suffering and killing in Gaza must stop now

After a pause in fighting for just one week, Plan International is devastated by the resumption of violence in Gaza over the weekend and the shocking number of civilians and children being killed in a matter of days.

Children in Gaza cannot wait any longer for a ceasefire

Since 7 October, 11,078 people, including over 4600 children, have been killed in Gaza. We demand a complete and unconditional ceasefire, immediately. In 41 days 11,078 people, including over 4,600 children, have been killed according to the United Nations. No conflict should ever reach this point.

Refugee camps should be a place of safety and never a target

We are horrified to learn of the bombing of the Jabalia refugee camp in northern Gaza last night, where 50 people are reported to have been killed and hundreds injured. Refugee camps should be a place of safety and civilians, especially children, must be protected and never a target.

We know that this moment is especially hard for First Nations communities and campaigners who disproportionately voted “Yes” for this change and who have championed a Voice to Parliament over the last months.
