Sail 4 Justice recognises and asserts the sovereignty and self-determination of First Nations people. We wish to pay our respects to the First Nations peoples on whose land and seas we travel and sail. We pay respect to the Elders past, present and emerging and to the strength of the Indigenous communities in ongoing struggles for self-determination.
A growing number of boats will set sail in May as part of a flotilla for justice and our destination is Manus. For too long Australia has left thousands of refugees to languish in offshore detention centres. We sail in solidarity, we sail to demand justice for all asylum seekers, we sail to show to the world what Australia is doing.
The Flotilla for justice will be launched from so-called Melbourne in May and leave Australia from Gimuy/Cairns in June 2019.
We need all the help and support to make this epic mission happen, please check our fundraising campaign and share it widely!

As the dust settles on a historic day in Parliament we would like to acknowledge the work of the community - people in detention, activists and advocates - in the passage of the Medical Evacuation Bill. This bill recognises that it is unjust to refuse medical treatment to critically ill people. We must go a step further and recognise the underlying injustice - and the cause of these illnesses in the first place - that it is unjust to refuse protection to people seeking asylum. We truly hope...read more
