As the issues of police brutality and racial injustice are continuing to rise to the surface in North America, we in Australia must not forget our own violent histories towards Black Australians.
Between 1980 and 2007, over 370 Aboriginal people have died in custody. This must end.
Come to the #BlackLivesMatter rally in Melbourne, 12pm this Sunday, 17th July 2016, at the State Library of Victoria. Show your support & solidarity to the black lives lost in America to police brutality, to the #BLM movement, and to the black lives in Australia who continue to experience colonial violence on a daily basis.
