Where you can show your support for the #JusticeforCassius movement across Australia this week

Tom Zaunmayr -

Demands for justice will echo loud across Australia this week in response to the racially-motivated death of 15-year-old Noongar-Yamatji boy Cassius Turvey last Sunday.

Cassius' beating was the latest in a shocking list of deaths of young Indigenous people spurred by racism, and has once again lead to outcry and demands for change across Australia.

In response, protests, vigils and celebrations of life have been organised in cities and towns in most states and territories this week to ensure Cassius' name is never forgotten.
