Join us outside the Federal Court of Australia on Wednesday the 8th of November at 8.30am to show your support to Uncle Pabai and Uncle Paul, two community leaders from the Guda Maluyligal Nation in the Torres Strait who are launching a historic legal action against the Australian Government for its failure to adequately reduce emissions and protect their islands and culture from climate change.

People living in the Torres Strait are at serious risk of becoming Australia’s first climate refugees. Sea levels are rising each year flooding homes, community infrastructure, gardens and cemeteries. If emissions are not drastically reduced, and fast, people will be forced off their islands and their connection to Country, culture and identity will be severed forever.

Politicians and decision-makers need to hear our message and see the level of public community support we’ve built to support Uncle Pabai and Uncle Paul in court, and to push the Government over the line on climate action. Amnesty activists and staff will be outside the Federal Court of Australia to show our support and we’d love to see you there too! Arrive at 8.30am for a 9am start beginning with a Welcome to Country, followed by a press conference.
