Public Forum: Violence Against Indigenous Women in Australia and Canada: What are the links.
When: Thursday April 7, 4-6 pm
Where: Broadway Campus, Building 6, Level 3, Room 56, University of Technology, Sydney.
The Canadian government recently announced a nationwide investigation into the cases of thousands of missing and murdered Aboriginal women. In Australia, recent cases such as the death of 22 year-old Ms Dhu in the South Hedland lock-up, the suicide of a ten-year old girl in the Kimberley, and a new rush of child removals, have focused attention on the forms of violence that constrict and kill Aboriginal women. In this context, a panel of scholars and community activists will examine the interconnected technologies of settler-colonial violence against Aboriginal women in Australia and Canada. How can we end the killing?
