The last time police shot a Warlpiri Aboriginal person was in the 1928 Coniston Massacre.
Warlpiri people are scared and upset and fearful. They are asking for an independent inquiry into the shooting and policing- they want to ensure that this never happens again.
The funds raised through this campaign will be withdrawn by Lisa Watts directly, and will be used to pay for lawyers to travel to Yuendumu to facilitate an independent inquiry into the shooting. While most of the lawyers will be working pro-bono (for free) we still need to cover the costs of airfares and other transport, and associated forensic expertise.
