Deaths in Custody Watch Committee calls major public rally and march

Deaths in Custody Watch Committee (WA) spokesperson, Marc Newhouse today announced that over a thousand concerned Western Australians are expected to attend a major public rally this Sunday, 11th July 2010.

The Deaths in Custody Watch Committee have called the rally following the Director of Public Prosecutions’ decision not to lay criminal charges against any of the parties responsible for the death in custody of Mr Ward in 2008.

Mr Ward’s cousin, Tjuparntarri Daisy Ward, will travel to Perth from Warburton to attend the rally. She will also address the gathered crowd on behalf of the Ward family and the Ngaanyatjarra people. Ms Ward will be available to speak to the media on the day.

“The State Government has failed to ensure justice for Mr Ward is achieved. They have also failed to address, or even acknowledge, the underlying issues — such as the systemic racism — which led to Mr Ward’s tragic death” said Mr Newhouse.

“This failure to act has left a gaping sense of injustice, disappointment and anger within the community and must be addressed”.

A list of demands have been presented to the State Government and Sunday’s rally will send an unequivocal message from the public that those responsible for Mr. Ward’s death must be brought to account.

Major Public Protest Rally and March: Sunday 11 July at 1PM
Supreme Court Gardens, cnr Barrack St & St George’s Tce, Perth

Media Contacts: Marc Newhouse, Chair of Deaths in Custody Watch Committee (WA), 0415 074 602.
