VIDEO: Seamus Doherty speaks about being put on the excluded people's list for CHOGM

Seamus Doherty is a long time human rights activist, particularly with the Western Australia Deaths in Custody Watch Committee. The WA Liberal government has put him on the CHOGM excluded people's list.

Doherty has never being charged with anything before and needs a walking stick to get around. But the CHOGM police task force has deemed him a threat.

Doherty is also a member of the CHOGM Action Network, which has planned a peaceful people's march on the CHOGM summit on October 28 to call for "justice and climate action, not racism and war".
