Aboriginal rights activists and supporters marched through Sydney on August 21 demanding justice and for an end to Black deaths in custody.

The rally was organised and led by families of Aboriginal people who have been victims of police brutality in prison, or victims of crime whose cases have stalled or gone cold due to government racism and inaction.
