Image was taken at the Mayday Rally in Melbourne.
This person is protesting the deaths in custody of a number of Aboriginals.
Australian Aboriginal deaths in custody has a long and sorry history. Many killing themselves, others have died as a result of mistreatment and neglect.
There is a current case making some news of a death on Palm Island. The aboriginal died after arrest from trauma type of injuries.
I don’t know enought about it to comment more than what I have done.
Maybe Aboriginal deaths in custody is one of those things that are ignored by wider society. This is because its not newsworthy. I dont know.
This guys protest had at least the effect of making me think about this matter and research it.
Some photos are great in black and white. This one has to be in color.
