Change the record

“Our people die when police have guns. We have tragically seen this time and time again. Kumanjayi Walker was killed in 2019. Only two months before that, a Yamatji woman, Joyce Clark, was shot and killed by a police officer. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples who are the victims of police misconduct face huge barriers to justice."

“Governments need to start addressing the underlying drivers of inequality and injustice in our communities instead of just throwing money at police to respond. That means addressing the housing crisis, ending poverty, supporting families and providing adequate and culturally safe health and mental health care.”

Statement In Support Of The Yuendumu Community Statement Of Demands

Black Death IPC Australia would like to show their support for the National Day of Action 18th June 2022.

Black Death IPC Australia are an Indigenous Political Club based in Adelaide, South Australia, whose main focus is on providing support to families and groups affected by Aboriginal Deaths in Custody and raising awareness around issues associated with Aboriginal incarceration rates. Black Death IPC Australia strives to empower Aboriginal people through true self-determination and promoting the awareness of Sovereignty and what it truly means for our people.

Black Death IPC Australia will be attending the National Day of Action on June 18 & look forward to joining in solidarity for justice for our people.

Aboriginal Deaths in Custody is a tragic circumstance that prevents our people from moving on which lays heavily at the core of Black Death IPC Australia, with two members (from the same family) having lost six family members to deaths in custody - some names may be familiar and are: Daniel Yock, Sheldon Currie, Bradley & Shaun Coolwell, David Dungay-Hill, and Robert Malayta - all related to each other and to the two Black Death IPC Australia members. Other Black Death members have also been affected personally by deaths in custody.

Too many lives lost, too much mourning for our people, no accountability. It's time to enforce Sovereign Law.

Black Death IPC Australia fully endorses the upcoming National Day of Action on June 18, 2022.

Support of Statement of Demands by Yiŋiya Mark Guyula MLA

“The announcement today is very disappointing. Aboriginal communities have been calling out for resources for our people so that we can establish our own services to mediate disputes, work with young people to build pride in identity and strong self discipline, re-empower elders and leaders to work in peace-keeping. Without this investment, we will not see safe and healthy communities. We need to have our Law and authority recognised and respected and we need to see the NT Government show that respect by resourcing programs that are about Aboriginal culture, rather than giving more money to a system that frightens people and puts us in jail. We are not seeing two-ways. We are not seeing self-determination or local decision-making. This is a Government that is protecting itself, rather than protecting and working for the people.”
