Campaign History - Campaign that's born from a Occupation Family and Advancing
On a bright Sunny morning in April 2018 the South family met in Birmingham
( UK ) to establish the Campaign at Hyatt Regency.
Kev South was appointed as the Campaign Lead.
The South Family had survived the Occupation of Jersey and Rev Ronald South
had been Wartime Minister of St Aubin Methodist Church.
Several members of family lived through the Occupation at West Park Avenue and
Victoria Avenue St Helier Jersey.
The Campaign was influenced by the family members and what they had said and
On the Day of the Launch ITV Channel Reported on Campaign Launch with a report in the News.
Been several reports on the Campaign by Jersey Evening Post - BBC Jersey and Bailiwick Express.
Shortly after the National Petition was launched on Change.org and not far from the 5.000petition amount today.
Andrew Renouf joined the Campaign in 2020 and being appointed as the Coordinator for Jersey for the Campaign.
The aims of the Campaign are ambitious to build a new British Isles Memorial to Remember and Reflect for (All) the Occupation Generation of Channel Islands of WW2.
Campaign equally marks the important Occupation Anniversaries and in 2020 asked the Bailiff of Jersey if a
Public Silence could happen and the 2020 80th Anniversary of the Occupation and bombing of St Peter Port
Guernsey and St Helier Jersey - harbours.
Campaign again requested a Public Silence for Liberation Day in 2021.
On both occasions the Bailiff of Jersey declined the requests for a Public Silences .
