CHUFFED | RAISING | Awareness, Support and Funds for Torres Strait Islander Elders to participate in climate case hearing

[Edited extract from public address]

Torres Strait leaders Uncle Paul and Uncle Pabai have taken the Australian Government to court in a historic legal case that could spur faster climate action. 

Chief Justice Mortimer will personally travel to hear testimony from the community. 

Now Elders and Custodians across clan groups need to be transported to Country to have their voices heard by the federal court, alongside the legal team. 

Would you chip in to transport senior leaders for this historic hearing in a few weeks? 
“Because of climate change our islands are being flooded and our communities could be forced to leave.”
– Uncle Paul and Uncle Pabai
Your support could change the course of history. “Torres Strait Islander Peoples have a long history of fighting for our rights. Eddie Mabo and his co-plaintiffs took on the Government, paving the way for land rights for all First Nations Peoples. Today, we are following in his footsteps, and those of others like him.” 

Over 1,000 legends on Chuffed previously chipped in to the legal fund. Now let’s make sure frontline First Nations voices are heard in person for this landmark opportunity for climate accountability.
