Heavy handed police presence at TJ Hickey march in Sydney

Issue 

Protesters marched through Redfern on February 14 to commemorate 11 years since Aboriginal teenager TJ Hickey was killed after being chased on his bike by police.

No police have been charged over Hickey's death and his family are still waiting for justice.

Police were heavy handed in their approach to the march, confiscating any banners or placards that mentioned the police and their role in TJ’s death.
