Ms Dhu’s inquest

 Let's Talk

18 March 2016

The inquest into the death in custody of 22-year-old Yamitji woman Ms Dhu recommenced this week. It began in November last year. This week the coroner heard from a number of police witnesses. There were 11 officers in the chain of command from Ms Dhu’s incarceration to her death only a few days later.

Ms Dhu was locked up on a warrant for over $3600 in unpaid fines. Amy McQuire speaks to the Guardian’s Calla Wahlquist, human rights lawyer George Newhouse, and Ms Dhu’s uncle Shaun Harris, to give us an update on the case.

Arrentre writer, feminist and unionist Celeste Liddle joined Amy McQuire on the programme to discuss the recent controversy after she was banned from Facebook six times for sharing an article depicting topless desert women conducting ceremony. Facebook deemed the image in breach of it’s nudity clause and labelled it offensive.

In this interview, Celeste discusses how Aboriginal women have been denigrated for centuries and talks about how mainstream feminism must learn to grapple with the unique struggles facing First Nations women.
