Aboriginal Death in Custody rally

A rally called to protest an Aboriginal death in custody will be held on Thursday March 11, at 11am at Parliament House on George and Alice Streets in Brisbane City. We spoke to Aboriginal community worker Sam Watson about the death two weeks ago in a Brisbane jail.

Mr Watson said that the prison administration had breached their duty of care to the man who has died. He also said that the rally would also support the community on Palm Island as a third inquest opens into the death of Mulrunji Doomadgee in a police cell there in 2004.
