For an island like ours the economic success of our nation is entirely dependent on the maritime sector. And we have a government hell-bent on destroying it.
The Liberal Government has all but dismantled Labor’s shipping laws. Laws which created a fairer market for Australian domestic shipping and protected Australian maritime industry.
They Government's changes have meant Australian flagged vessels are being replaced with flags of convenience.
The International Trade Federation’s estimates there are only 21 Australian flagged ships left on domestic routes.
Never before has an Australian Government tried so hard to fly fewer Australian flags.
Fly our flag and protect Australian jobs.
