Justice for Elijah

Less than a year ago, on 29 August 2016, 14 year old Elijah Doughty was stalked, run down and killed in a clearly race-based hate crime. The incident itself lead to riots and massive protests in Kalgoorlie. Mark Donnaly, was found not guilty of manslaughter, on Friday 21 July, but was convicted of causing death by dangerous driving.  He was sentenced to 3 years imprisonment and be released on parole in February next year.  This is yet another tragic and stark example of the racism, both personal and structural that Aboriginal people face in Australia. Activists have called rallies across the country, including in Melbourne
