It's been 28 years since thRoyal Commission into Aboriginal Deaths in Custody. In Victoria, over 80 Aboriginal, health, human rights, housing, legal and women’s organisations are calling on Premier Andrews to abolish the offense of public drunkenness – a key recommendation of the Royal Commission. This petition was sparked by the December 2017 death in custody of Aboriginal mother, grandmother and beloved community member, Tanya Day. In this episode we speak with AprylWatson , a proud Yorta Yorta, Wemba Wemba, Barapa Barapa woman from Echuca and one of Tanya Day's four children. We also speak with Shahleena Muska proud Larrakia woman from Darwin in the Northern Territory, she is a lawyer at the Human Rights Law Centre.
