Right to Self-Determination

The Norfolk Island people have now had their democratically elected Parliament abolished since 17 June 2015 and are seeking to be inscribed on the United Nations List of Non Self-Governing Territories so that the community may have a say and be free to determine their political status, their economic, social and cultural development.

Our Struggle for Self-Determination

On 19 March 2015, Norfolk Island suffered an enormous blow against its government processes when the Commonwealth government of Australia announced its unwarranted and ill informed decision to remove the Island’s Legislative Assembly.

On 8 May 2015, the Norfolk Island People voted overwhelmingly in support of their “right to freely determine their political status, their economic, social and cultural development”. Australia chose to ignore the outcome of the legally constituted referendum and to disregard the rights of the Norfolk Island People.

This is a summary of our situation today:

  1. Self-government has been removed.

  2. Norfolk Island is now a Non Self-Governing Territory.

  3. Norfolk Island may now be inscribed on the United Nations List of Non Self Governing Territories.

  4. Upon Inscription, there are protective rights accorded to the Norfolk Island People by the United Nations to allow them to freely determine their political status and freely pursue their economic, social and cultural development.
