This week we hear about the broader issues of oppression around the struggle for Justice for Filipina trans woman Mhelody Polan Bruno, who was killed on holiday in Australia last year. We hear from Lina Cabaero, from Migrante Australia, who also talks about Phillipines solidarity. We then hear excerpts from a vigil last year in Melbourne, organised by Members of Filipinx, Trans, Asian Diaspora communities, calling for justice for Mhelody Polan Bruno, in 2019. We hear from chair Laura McClean, Alexia from Migrante Australia, Sharmane from Anakbayan Melbourne (statement link), Ness from Gabriela Australia, and Yani & Sophie from Anti Colonial Asian Alliance.
