About to introduce bills to #StopAdani coal mine & to immediately begin phase-out of mining, burning & exporting of coal for electricity by 2030.

We saw last wk we can get things done when Labor works w #Greens & xbench. Will Labor now back us on coal? Or keep siding with Libs?

It's going to be stunning to look back on this era how the bulk of our country's media happily accepted the premise of 'we can only stop people smuggling by torturing brown people on an island. Sorry there's just no other way"

I support a #RoyalCommissionNow. Disabled people have endured abuse in homes, in ‘care’, in hospitals, in schools and throughout the community for too long, and have not been heard or believed. It’s time for listening and for justice.

"I feel frustrated there are organisations who are funded on many levels, who are resourced and yet when we tackle some of these matters, their first reaction is: 'We need additional money'," @KenWyattMP said”

“In north Queensland, 20% of the women in that prison on remand are there for breaches of domestic violence orders. They are women that have been defending themselves but they are the ones that are criminalised and remanded into prison.” @DebKilroy #auspol #TheDrum

“The system demonises people, it doesn't strengthen them so they can build better lives and be better citizens. Our system denigrates people, it makes people feel they can't make decisions. It actually brutalises any of the trauma they've gone through.” @AxCheryl #auspol #TheDrum

“A program's never going to rehabilitate any woman in prison because our issues are poverty, the violence and isolation. A program that goes for 6 or 12 weeks, that's the welfare industry making money on the back of me and other criminalised women and girls.” @DebKilroy #TheDrum

Pat Dodson delivered a response to the Closing the Gap report to a Senate which was almost completely empty. These politicians cannot even be bothered listening to their black colleagues within the system so no wonder the targets are going backwards & the rest of us get ignored.

Up to 90 per cent of women in Australian prisons have experienced domestic violence, where are things going wrong? Tonight in a special episode of #TheDrum the panel will examine what is and isn’t working for women in Australia’s criminal justice system

But no one seems to care about these two Aboriginal men - locked up in the days of the Royal Commission into Aboriginal Deaths in Custody. In Kevin's case, he was locked up in the year of thr Fitzgerald inquiry - which found police used tactics of "verballing" throughout Qld

Replying to @amymcquire :
These two men have a lot of evidence pointing to miscarriages of justice. These are strong cases. There are differences and striking similarities. But Aust ignores them despite them losing over 50 years of their lives collectively

In both cases it seems police did not conduct proper investigations. In Kevin's case they coerced a confession that did not fit with facts of case (a fact raised by trial judge in summary) and then closed all other avenues of investigation, even when other people confessed

In Kevin's case there is evidence of a forced and coerced confession taken by police - and we know from Gene Gibson's case how easy it is for police to coerce confessions from Aboriginal witnessed

So there have been a few news reports on possible wrongful convictions in Oz media recently - but complete silence over the cases of two Aboriginal men - Kevin Henry and Derek Bromley - who both have very strong cases of innocence.

@amymcquire WTAF *thats* his measure of what it means to be losing? He’s observed men to be buying chocolates and flowers and he doesn’t know women who do it? But he IS aware women are dying. JFC priorities.

I bought my husband flowers... I’ve always done it.

If you want to close the gap on education, why not make uni free for all blackfellas? For everyone? Not just white teachers keen to do a few years in a remote community. The last thing we need is more white “experts” on our ppl & culture. But you’d know that if you’d asked.
