Sydney: Tuesday April 24: protest over police shootings

 

Koori Mail: A RALLY is being planned for Sydney tomorrow, to protest the circumstances of a dramatic car chase in Kings Cross early on Saturday morning that saw two pedestrians struck and ended in police shooting two Redfern teenagers. The 14-year-old driver of the stolen car and an 18-year-old passenger remain in hospital. Video footage has emerged of an officer repeatedly punching the heavily bleeding passenger after he was dragged from the car. A police investigation into the incident is underway, amid calls for a separate one into the level of force involved in the arrests. Tomorrow’s rally outside NSW Parliament House will start at 1.30pm.
