CEO Of Tasmanian Aboriginal Centre Heather Sculthorpe Talks Police Brutality In Australia
What you can do to help
This morning on the show, Jimmy & Nath spoke to CEO of the Tasmanian Aboriginal Centre, Heather Sculthorpe, about police brutality in Australia, Indigenous deaths in custody and what we can do to help.
TAC represents the political and community development aspirations of the Tasmanian Aboriginal community. The TAC was developed in the early 1970s.
We've seen protests across the US after the death of George Floyd in police custody, and it's made us look at our Indigenous community and the brutality happening in our own country.
Heather talks about the need to restrain police who are showing excessive force against Indigenous people and the urgent need for legislation to ensure that sort of behaviour is brought to justice.
