Persuasive speeches from The Island

In English, we have been studying Armin Greder’s novel, The Island, about the problems a stranger causes a community when he washes up on their shore. We decided that we would write a speech given to the rest of the villagers by the fisherman, who thinks that the stranger should be allowed to stay. The fisherman is a complex character and the insinuation is that although he has a conscience, he doesn’t feel that the stranger should have the same  rights as the rest of the islanders.

Here are some examples of the children’s speeches:
