Support the Sail4Justice
Many asylum seekers have languished in australian detention prisons for years, and have understandably lost hope in us. The result of the recent election is devastating for refugees on Manus, Nauru and those detained onshore. A growing number of men on Manus have attempted suicide and engaged in self-harm. Instead of showing compassion, the Federal Government responded with plans to repeal the Medevac bill, which was to provide much needed healthcare.
Right now, Sail4Justice is on its way to Manus. To speak up to injustice and show our solidarity. To show that despite the election, we care, we are watching, and we will keep fighting.
We will take your message of support with us.
Write your message to the men on Manus via our website, or send handwritten letters and cards (contact us for address). We will take these messages across the ocean.
If you wish to contribute materials to go directly with us to Manus on board the flotilla of boats, we have received a list of specific requests:
- USB, SD cards, Hard drives
- Smartphones (functioning and complete with chargers and batteries)
- Laptops (functioning and complete with chargers and batteries)
- Basic First Aid items
- Prescription glasses
You can send these things to us in Gimuy/Cairns (contact us for address) and we will take them with us to Manus.
Alternatively, you can donate money to go directly towards us purchasing these items.

This is a huge undertaking and we need your help!
The crew of the Lazy Jack are asking you all to join or to support the Flotilla for Justice that will be launched from Narrm/Melbourne in May and leave Australia from Gimuy/Cairns in June 2019. We will be taking to the seas and our destination is Manus Island.
You will be supporting the good ship Lazy Jack. She is a Tahiti ketch built by an arborist from timber collected for 20+ years and 15 years in construction. All the timber in her would have been chipped if not salvaged to construct this beautiful boat.
All funds raised will contribute to the safety and communication requirements of the flotilla including internet to keep you all informed of issues and events relating to the flotilla, the plight of the people on Manus Island and local issues we will encounter along the way.
