In late September 2017 there will be an International week of action to Shut Youth Prisons and End Deaths in Custody. The time marks the handing down of recommendations from The Royal Commission into the Protection and Detention of Children in the Northern Territory, as well as the one year anniversary of the death of Wayne Fella Morrison in custody at Yatala prison, South Australia.
It is crucial we are all witnessing the NT government's reaction to this report, or else we allow them to do nothing about it. This happened with the Royal Commission into Aboriginal Deaths in Custody and over 355 have died in custody since the report was tabled.
Shut Youth Prisons are raising money to spread awareness via t-shirts; zines and stickers leading upto the protests on the 28th/29th of September. You can order any or all of the above with your donation.
Your money will go towards covering the costs of printing and postage as well as fundraising for the International Week of Action.
