The declaration: We call on NSW Parliament to:1 Release all Aboriginal People on remand for non-violent crimes 2. Review of all Aboriginal People Incarcerated. There is a clearly biased system of Blak people being put on remand for crimes. White people get a warning for, or a fine for or bail for. Fighting In Resistance Equally (FIRE) will be calling on the NSW State Government to release all black people on remand and an investigation into why black people get much longer sentences than white people for similar crimes. Hosted by FIRE Fighting In Resistance Equally.
@ 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. Hosted by FIRE Fighting In Resistance Equally. Ken Canning 0423 732 094
