Remembering TJ Hickey — Twenty years and still no justice. Melbourne speak out against First Nations deaths in custody

February 17 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm AEDT

Freedom Socialist Party and Radical Women support the work of the Indigenous Social Justice Association – Melbourne. ISJA is holding a speak out to mark the 20th anniversary of the death in police custody of Redfern teenager, TJ Hickey. Honour the memory of TJ and show your solidarity with the many deaths in custody families.

Deaths in custody are part of the systemic, brutal and racist mistreatment of First Nations people at the hands of the settler state that is capitalist Australia.

Demand:
• Justice for TJ Hickey and all who have died in police and prison custody.
• End the practice of police investigating police — establish mechanism with real powers to control the police through making them accountable to the community.
• Immediate implementation of all 339 recommendations of the Royal Commission into Aboriginal deaths in custody.

Build the movement that can put an end to deaths in custody permanently.

This event is organised with the support of TJ’s Mum, Gail Hickey.
