Hundreds of demonstrators took to Adelaide’s streets last night as part of a series of actions around the country in support of the remote central Australian community of Yuendumu, which is seeking answers following the death of 19-year-old Warlpiri man Kumanjayi Walker.

Kumanjayi Walker’s cousin Samara Fernandez addressed the crowd alongside representatives from local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, reading statements from senior Warlpiri men and women and calling for an independent investigation, the release of police footage from the fatal shooting and wider justice reform.

Mr Walker’s death comes in the wake of several high-profile Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander death in custody cases, including the recent Victorian inquest into the December 2017 death of Yorta Yorta grandmother Tanya Day.

Hours after the rally, Northern Territory police confirmed a 28-year-old officer had been charged in relation to Mr. Walker’s death.
