Indigenous activist Sam Watson is calls supporters to rally against police who ‘kill Aboriginal prisoners, lie and go free’, in a Murri protest to be held at Brisbanes Parliament House at midday today.

Mr Watson is currently leading a campaign against the Queensland Police Service for its handling of the Palm Island custody death of Cameron Doomadgee, He has called for Police Commissioner Bob Atkinson to be sacked and for a royal commission into all Aboriginal deaths in custody since 1991.

In recent statements, Mr Watson labelled Townsville as the nations Ku Klux Klan capital, saying “it’s like going into the degraded principality of 1940s and 1930s deep south America”. This comes after the latest coronial inquest findings into Domadgees death at the hands of police.
