TJ Hickey Park, cnr George & Phillip St, Waterloo for march to NSW Parliament
For almost 14 years, the Hickey family and the Indigenous Social Justice Association has been demanding the reopening of the Coronial Inquiry into the killing of then 16-year-old TJ during a police pursuit. for almost 14 years. They have had meetings with one Attorney General, two Aboriginal Affairs ministers, sent letters to three premiers, few police ministers, rallied to NSW Parliament House almost 10 times and present petitions, but all to no avail.

@ Sydney Town Hall, 483 George St Sydney
It took years of grassroots campaigning in the 1980s to force the Hawke government to acknowledge the appalling rate at which Aboriginal people were being killed by police and prisons.That government ignored almost all the 339 recommendations made by that Royal Commission into Aboriginal Deaths in Custody.  We urge all peoples of this land to unite in solidarity and call for real justice that will end the killings in custody.
