Something to also note from research I recall coming from @DjirraVIC black women in INTERRACIAL relationships had higher rates of DV, meaning it is not Aboriginality that is the problem!!!

This is profound. I’m 40 and have heard abt Emmett Till my WHOLE BLACK LIFE & never once heard that the whistling accusation that lost him his life was due to disability. This hits home. Looking at our history & future w/a disability justice lens is central to our liberation.

Thread below. For those who don’t know, sterilisation of Aboriginal women continued up to 1970’s in Australia. This was to control the ‘problem’ of mixed race children being born as a result of white men raping Aboriginal women. Read the work by Dist Prof Aileen Moreton Robinson.

This is the nexus between the prison industrial complex and climate change. Why are we celebrating this? Why should we glorify slavery in order to recognise the humanity of prisoners? Fuck this.

Angela Davis speaks of her shock when she came to Australia of the rates Aboriginal people are imprisoned, higher than the US. We have to understand racism as a driving force.

Miriam Bevis from @NAAJA_NT Kunga Stopping Violence Program for women in Alice who have been imprisoned from violence. These women are victims of violence, often with war-like wounds. They develop “lost stories maps” to help magistrates understand. #ImaginingAbolition

Devastating to hear from @latoya_aroha about the death of her brother Wayne Fella Morrison in custody and the way in which Aboriginal people are held responsible for their own deaths in custody. Talks too of the way Ms Dhu's death is constructed in this way. #imaginingabolition

Vickie Roach telling her story. She recieved her first criminal charge at the age of 2yrs for 'neglecting herself'. Her story demonstrates how the 'child protection' industry and the prison industry is one in the same. A care to prison pipeline #imaginingabolition #sistersinside

If we are talking about research related to issues & practices that impact on Indigenous Peoples without including Indigenous knowledges, Indigenous theories, Indigenous Methodologies, Indigenous methods, Indigenous analysis - then we are doing our people a disservice.

all the families want is another day in court
On Bowraville murders case, the government is in the High Court arguing that the law on double jeopardy should be read EXACTLY how I tried to amend it in 2015 and again this year. Why didn’t they support us then and allow all this uncertainty to continue?

From the forced sterilization lawsuits in Saskatchewan to the chilling child removal laws set to pass in NSW today — colonisation & genocide are reproductive & gendered violence. Indigenous feminists are holding the line. We need more feminists to join us, for our sake & yours.
