As Australians, we are guests in hip-hop culture. It is our duty and obligation not to remain silent. Not at this moment, not ever. We pledge to use our voices to speak against injustice, oppression and racism abroad and at home. We stand in solidarity with those in pain and stand against power structures that uphold white supremacy everywhere.

Below is a list of resources and organisations for those who wish to contribute to the ongoing situation in the USA and the injustices faced at home against Indigenous lives.

Organisations in the USA have set up ‘Bail Funds’ you can donate to, which pay the bail to release people arrested during the protests. A huge part of the systemic racism built into the law enforcement system is setting bail which many people cannot afford ­– another example of the privilege that allows some people pay their way out of the criminal system, while others are denied the same opportunity due only to their socioeconomic status.

It is also worth donating to organisations that provide services to Black people in America fighting their way through a corrupt and stacked judicial system.

Some options:

There is also a GoFundMe for George Floyd’s family.

Advocate for Indigenous Australians:

Remember that this happens in Australia too.

More than 400 Indigenous people have died while in police custody, since the 1991 Royal Commission into Aboriginal deaths in custody. There have been no convictions, despite clear similarities to the situation in the US where:

  1. Indigenous Australians have been arrested for minor, non-violent offences, and have died while under police custody
  2. Indigenous Australians are over-represented in both men’s and women’s prison populations, and juvenile detention, despite being a smaller % of the general population.
