Indigenous Australian Activist Points to Forced Displacement Of Her Community

GUEST: Samantha Cook, co-found of SOSBlakAustralia.

Friday November 27th was meant to be the biggest shopping day of the year. But that day has increasingly become a convenient day of protest for a variety of causes including low-wage workers demanding better working conditions, and Black activists boycotting sales over police violence. This past Friday also marked one year since the start of a campaign called sosblakaustralia.

Indigenous activists from Australia have organized around the world, and here in California, to idea express opposition to the threatened closure of remote Aboriginal communities by the Western Australia State & Federal Australian Governments.

    Thank you for continuing to cover this. As far as I know, Uprising is the mass media only outlet in the U.S. that’s been reporting on this. Hope your TV show comes back.
