Today’s landmark United Nations committee finding the Morrison Govt failed to adequately protect Torres Strait islanders, and violated their right to enjoy their culture and lives, by failing to act on the climate crisis, was of course brought to you again by #ScottyHoldMyCoal.

The complaint, filed over three years ago by eight Torres Strait Islanders and their children, is one of a growing body of climate cases being brought around the world on human rights grounds, and the ruling is expected to embolden others. https://t.co/PUQTSEXTr9

In a groundbreaking decision, UN Human Rights Committee decided that Australia failed to protect Torres Strait Islanders including their right to culture by failing to take action on climate change and Australia must provide adequate compensation to victims. Wow! This is huge!
