Thirty years after the 1991 Royal Commission into Indigenous deaths in custody, many of its recommendations have yet to be implemented. Not only have we now reached the sad milestone of 500 Indigenous people dying in custody since its release, not a single person has been held accountable for any of these deaths. On this episode of Broken Chains we talk to Donna Meehan, an author and survivor of the stolen generation, about issues including Indigenous deaths in custody, the Australian Black Lives Matter movement and her involvement in Kairos Prison Ministries.
