I have just viewed a news cast of the rallies across Australia, all which in capital and regional centres, were well attended.

The court decision in Sydney was overturned on an urgent appeal.

Police assisted the protesters by traffic control, handing out masks in some places. Aboriginal flags mounted on some police stations with consent, police in some places marched with the protesters. 

No looting or aggression.

The demos are still going ahead in Australia, whether they are banned or not.

Give the brain dead something to do, I suppose.....:coffee1:

 

Hope the Aus gov told them looters will be shot on site....That should reduce the numbers attending...

Sorry to disappoint you, but looting is not usual at protests in Australia.

The court ruling for Sydney was overturned, all protests were peaceful and police in some instances marching with the participants, handing out masks, and doing traffic control.

They are not people who are brain dead, surprisingly it is about empathy, if you understand what that may be.

 

Perhaps this may be of assistance in giving some perspective

Australians are protesting police targeting indigenous youths and their deaths in custody. As RJRS1301 says, the norm is peaceful protests in Oz.

Id say the death in custody of a Farang in Australia is zero.

It was only a few ago that NSW police shot dead a French backpacker with mental ill health at Bondi beach.

Similar for young Israeli man in Melbourne who died in custody from head injuries sustained on arrest

Good attempt at diversion though

In raw numbers yes, but as the Aboriginal prison population is only 34%, therefore proportionately higher incidents.

All deaths including age related and health related are recorded in those raw numbers, the protest is about the high numbers of Aboriginals who have died through preventable causes, and brutality  towards Aboriginal people, in custody and the resulting deaths.

I confirmed the raw number, now look at the proportions, and look at how more proportionately died from police/custodial actions. where as the majority of other deaths in custody of non Aboriginal were health /aged related not brutality.

Do not go with raw numbers, which mean sweet FA, unless interpreted well.

Basically if 65 % are non Aboriginal then will have higher a higher death rate, look at cause of death, look at incarceration rates, Take a deep dive into it

Objectivity helps
