Summary
This video documents a street rally protesting Police racist violence against Aborigines in Brisbane on 25 August 1987. It appears to be compiled from the camera tapes [V09466_2-4]. On the cusp of the Federal government’s announcement of a Royal Commission into Aboriginal Deaths in Custody, the rally formed to ‘put a spotlight’ on particular incidents in Brisbane where police had intervened apparently unnecessarily and excessively at Aboriginal organised social events; a football presentation night at Rosalie on 27 September 1986, and a 21st birthday party in an RSL hall at Annerley on 23 August 1987, that prompted the rally. The rally converged on the Queensland Police Department Headquarters, and an Indigenous delegation met with the Assistant Commissioner of Police, Terry McMahon. This led to a proposal for the establishment of a special police liaison unit in a bid to improve relations between police and Aborigines. Several key speakers remain to be identified
