On Friday 24 January 2020, Robert Clarke and his Australian family will launch an international media and social media campaign calling for public support to help rescue Benny and Lucia Clarke from illegal retention in Colombia.
The campaign will draw attention to the Colombia’s failure to uphold the fundamental principles of the Hague Convention and call on people to add their voice by signing the petition addressed to the President of the Republic of Colombia, Iván Duque Márquez, asking him to honour Colombia’s commitment to the Hague Convention and “Help bring these two precious little Australians home!”
The campaign will be generated by the international-award-winning Australian Public Relations Agency, Insight Communications known for conducting media and social media campaigns including the award-winning Where’s William? (Tyrrell) campaign that raised national and international awareness of abducted Australian toddler, William Tyrrell (the little boy in the Spiderman suit).
The aim of the Clarke Family’s “Help Bring My Children Home” campaign is to attract global media attentionon the illegal abduction and retention of Benny and Lucia Clarke under The Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction. A key focus of the campaign will be to draw international attention to the failure on the part of the Colombian Government to honour their agreement under The Hague Convention and publicly reveal the harm being caused to young Benny and Lucia as a result of Colombia’s non-compliance.
