Abstract: Midha kidha mura buai, My name is Yessie, I’m a Zenadh Kes Masig man, living in the Kulkalgal tribe area in the Central Torres Strait Islands. I am one of eight claimants who are taking the Australian government to the UN for failing to act on climate change, putting our islands, people and culture at risk.






Today I am calling on you to help launch our campaign - Our Islands Our Home. We’re trying to raise $20,000 to kick off our campaign, can you chip in?







The Torres Strait is made up of 133 islands just north of Queensland. Each Torres Strait Island is similar, but we have distinct cultures that set us apart. Our ties to land and sea are strong, but climate change threatens to take away so much of what makes us who we are.







Our ties to land and sea are strong, but climate change threatens to take away so much of what makes us who we are.



That’s why we’re making a complaint about Australia at the UN, for failing to protect us as citizens, and it’s why we’re calling for support.
