A big part of aboriginal struggle for justice is tied up with colonisation, with the settler state, that is the contradiction faced by indigenous people everywhere. Here is a plea from an aboriginal father for justice for his son.
A very strong vocal gathering of family and concerned community members today on the steps of the Queensland Premier’s Office Annastacia Palaszczuk to demand an inquiry into the brutal bashing of 11 year old Denzel who today remains on remand at Brisbane’s Youth Dention Centre Wacol.
The family still has no answers as to what happened to Denzel. The protestor’s chanted ‘Free Denzel’ and voiced their demands to stand down and formerly charge the staff at the detention centre who are responsible for the vicious assault on 11 year old Denzel.
A representative of Palaszczuk’s government came out to address the crowd and he said that he would begin immediate action on the demands made by the family and concerned community members.
More action has been organised by concerned community members in the Brisbane area coinciding with Dundalli day.
On the 5th of January we will remember the life that Dundalli lived and honour his fight against the colonisers, a fight that ensured the further existance of Aboriginal people. Dundalli was a freedom fighter who faught in many battles that make up the Frontier Wars, he lead his people with pride and strength and for that we remember him.
