Perth rally against closure of Aboriginal communities

Issue 

Over 100 people rallied in front of WA Parliament House on June 26, 2015 as part of the third #SOSblakaustralia "call to action" to stop forced closures of Aboriginal communities.

Speakers included Aboriginal heritage advocate Clayton Lewis and Greens MLC Robin Chapple. Bella Bropho from the Swan Valley Nyungar Community gave a Welcome to Country.

Chapple pointed out that at a recent estimates committee hearing, government representatives acknowledged that they did not know which communities they thought should be closed.
