If you are able to, please consider donating to one of these three funds, which are dedicated to covering legal fees for the families of three Indigenous Australians killed in police custody.
We have a responsibility to educate ourselves about the systematic racism which continues to thrive in Australia. The Cockburn Library offers an excellent list of books by Indigenous Australians, which you can access via the link below. This also includes Bruce Pascoe’s ‘Dark Emu’, which he spoke about at the Bono Wiener Memorial Lecture.
If you are able to, there will be a peaceful rally held in Melbourne on Saturday the 6th of June seeking justice for George Floyd and putting an end to Aboriginal deaths in police custody. The event organisers are promoting social distancing measures and the use of masks, gloves and hand sanitiser. For more information, click the link below:
