In today's show highlighting the Black Lives Matter movement, I'm sharing interviews and statements from family members of First Nations people who have died in custody. Since the Royal Commission into Aboriginal Deaths in Custody report was released in 1987, 432 Aboriginal people in so-called Australia have been killed while in police custody. There is an interview with Latoya Aroha Rule whose brother Wayne Fella Morrison died in 2016 and one with Chante Walker whose sister Veronica Nelson Walker died in custody on January 2nd, 2020. Lastly, I share a recording of speakers from a rally in solidarity with the Yuendumu community following the death of Kumanjayi Walker, who was shot in November, 2019.
