6:35 pm
long bay prison. oh, the current found lack of oxygen while he was restrained, was a contributing factor to his death. but it has taken the death of a black man in america to wake us up to what happens here. the black people die here in custody. and the numbers keep rising and we failed to stop us. i i don't believe actually the government have learned anything more than how to hide aboriginal death and cassi from the world. and that's what we're trying to expose here. we need to expose globally what's happening here in australia because we resonate with people like george floyd, we resonate with those families. we resonate with various testing hussy around the world that are going on the same pillar of love,
