Crowdfunding to send Australian sex-abuse survivors to Rome for testimony of notorious cardinal


Cardinal George Pell presided over decades of horrific abuse of Australian children by his clergy; now the active, vigorous crime-boss says he’s too weak to return to Australia from the Vatican to attend a commission on the crimes, meaning that he won’t have to confront the survivors of the abuse he abetted.

A Gofundme campaign has raised over AUD200,000 to send the survivors to Rome, thanks in part to a scathing song by Tim Minchin, creator of the (brilliant) musical version of Roald Dahl’s Matilda and author of the (likewise brilliant) book/poem/rant Storm.
