100% of profits from this tank support the Our Island Our Homes Campaign led by Torres Strait Islanders to protect their island homes from climate change. As part of the ‘Our Islands Our Home’ campaign, eight claimants from Zenadth Kes (the Torres Strait) also known as the Torres Strait 8 have brought a human rights complaint against the Australian Federal Government for failing to protect the Torres Strait from climate change. When you wear this tank, you are supporting the #TorresStrait8’s fight for climate justice. You are supporting a call to action that Australia must rapidly reduce its carbon emissions, and immediately resources adaptation needs.

- The tank has three embroidered love hearts in blue, green and black (the colours of the Torres Strait Islander flag) representing the seas, the land and the people.

- A white Dhari with a five-pointed white star sits above the three love hearts. This Dhari and star (traditional headdress), is a key feature of the Torres Strait Islander flag which was designed by the late Bernard Namok of Thursday Island and is a symbol of Torres Strait Islanders and is used in cultural ceremony and dance.

‘The white five-pointed star symbolises peace, and the navigational importance of stars to the seafaring people of the Torres Strait.
The five-pointed star also represents the five distinct language and cultural groups of the region. The five island groups are:
• Northern islands (Boigu, Dauan, Saibai)
• Eastern islands (Erub, Mer, Ugar)
• Western islands (St Pauls, Kubin, Badu, Mabuiag)
• Central islands (Masig, Poruma, Warraber, Iama)
• Southern islands (Kirriri (Hammond Island), Waiben (Thursday Island) and Inner Islands, Northern Peninsula Area and Mainland Australia).’

This product is Ally Friendly.

Ally friendly merch is for everyone.

When we see non-Indigenous people wearing our designs, we feel proud that they are repping our merch and culture.

When we see Aboriginal designs in the world, it means Indigenous people are not invisible in the landscape.

But, purchasing from Aboriginal brands, businesses and wearing Indigenous designs alone is surface-level allyship. There needs to be more commitment than just buying from Aboriginal brands and businesses.

Wearing Aboriginal design is not dismantling a system that oppresses Indigenous people. Allies need to do more and learn more. Wearing our tees is a great starting point. We have equipped you with our merch and some of the educational content to go with them. We want you to go out in the world, have these important conversations and find ways to do more and support more.

3. Email your MP the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Sixth Assessment Report which highlights that climate damage is already occurring in the Torres Strait, and these impacts are predicted to intensify.

4. Meet your local MP and urge them to take immediate action to protect the Torres Strait from the impacts of climate change (resources to meet and prepare for your visit arehere).
