#australia #law #indigenous – pls share: “Struggling for Justice, Three Years on” – Bellotti Support Group (BSG)

Please read and circulate, share, post on your social media sites.

As a community we all have a duty to fight for the rights of all, otherwise human rights will eventuate for none of us.

Tuesday 6th March 2012 – 3 years since Rex Bellotti Junior was run over by members of the WA police in their 4WD.

In the three years since Rex Bellotti Junior, then 15 years of age, nearly lost his life, his family has continually fought for justice, demanded accountability from within the WA police, pleaded for mental health support services… a sign from the community, and from those who possess the most power within our community, to acknowledge that what happened to Rex Junior is abhorrent and unacceptable.

Rex Bellotti Junior has undergone numerous vital surgeries in attempts to save his leg from amputation, and these surgeries are far from over, as is the risk of amputation.

Since March 6th, 2009, the Bellotti family has not stopped fighting for their son, despite receiving minimal (if not non-existent) support.

It is time that all members of the community take a stand against young lives being cut short and life chances being destroyed.

On Tuesday, 6th March, the Bellotti Support Group (BSG) is holding a rally outside parliament house, commencing at 12:30.

This rally is to show that we have not forgotten, we will not give up and we will continue to demand justice for a young Aboriginal boy who lost what no person should, at the hands of the WA police. Please attend and take a stand for the human rights of all members of the community.

Sincerely and in Solidarity,

Shilo Harrison

Bellotti Support Group Project Coordinator
