In this episode of LeftCast we speak to Indigenous activist, Sam Watson.
Music: Danibal:
Two years ago Mulrunji Doomagee, an aboriginal man, died in police custody on Palm Island -- an indigenous community on the Central Queensland Coast. His death has galvanized a new and strong sense of anger and protest amongst Indigenous Australians, particularly Qld Murris . On this episode of LeftCast we talk to Sam Watson -- a leading indigenous activist from Brisbane. Sam Watson discusses the new political renaissance that has arisen within the aboriginal community and talks about its present perspectives and momentum.
