How Covid Is Affecting Aboriginal Communities In Australia

2 years ago

Trigger and Language Warning - Emotional scenes and offensive language

It's like a different world for our First Nations People in Australia, given fines for getting essentials, forced to stay home even with negative tests, removed from the home and taken to isolation centres because they are high risk. Families told they cannot receive life saving medical treatment unless they receive the covid vaccine, families unable to access medical centres and hospitals, food or access to support.

We are a close knit community, cut off from eachother, our elders are without support, the young ones are doing it tough and testing already struggling communities.

Here is a compilation of videos you can find on social media, sharing stories of real people living in our outback towns, reserves and missions.

Apologies, it's really really rough but I'm working on my phone.

Big thanks to Shillingsworth Talks and aunty Monica Kerwin for their updates and keeping Mob informed, such a vital community service and so needed right now.

If you know someone who needs support or Know Your Rights info, pls connect in our Facebook group- Keeping Mob Safe.

Thank you also to the team of at AdvocateMe for being on call to help families in distress.
