First Nations activists and supporters rallied to mark the 30th anniversary of the Royal Commission into Aboriginal Deaths in Custody.

The action in Sydney on April 15 also coincided with the release of the findings of a NSW parliamentary inquiry into Aboriginal deaths in custody.

Chaired by Gomeroi woman Gwenda Stanley, the rally was addressed by various First Nations warriors.

It was organised by Fighting in Solidarity Towards Treaties, Australian Student Environment Network, East Coast Clans of Resistance and Gamilaraay Next Generation.
