MUSIC INDUSTRY BLACKOUT TUESDAY

Music Injection Aus are choosing to observe 24 hours of silence to stand with those fighting against institutional oppression and racism. The events in the US highlight how racism is embedded in our Australian culture against the Aborigines, Australia’s First People.

We need to do better. The world needs to do better.

SIGN A PETITION

Justice for George Floyd on change.org

 “We are trying to reach the attention of Mayor Jacob Frey and DA Mike Freeman to beg to have the officers involved in this disgusting situation fired and for charges to be filed immediately.” Taken from the petition page

#JusticeforFloyd on act.colorofchange.org

 “I am outraged and disturbed by the killing of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis Police Department officers. For seven minutes, George Floyd and bystanders cried out and pleaded for his life as your officers choked him to death in broad daylight. This is an act of police violence committed on an innocent, unarmed Black man. No one deserves what happened to George. And it’s up to you to grant justice. I’m calling on you, the Mayor, to 1) block their pensions and 2) ban them from becoming police officers ever again. And County Attorney Freeman and Attorney General Ellison must immediately charge ALL four officers with murder. We’re counting on you to secure justice for his family.“ Taken from the petition page
