  • Death in custody of Terrance Briscoe, Alice Spring (5 January 2012)
  • 4th anniversary of the death of Mr Ward (27 January)
  • 5th anniversary of Queensland Police officer, Chris Hurley, being forced to front the Supreme Court charged with manslaughter and assault (5 February)
  • 8th anniversary of the death of TJ Hickey (14 February)

Stop Aboriginal deaths in custody - implement all 339 recommendations of the Royal Commission into Aboriginal Deaths in Custody

End privatisation of custodial services - cancel all contracts with G4S, SERCO and other profiteers from incarceration

Hold the police to account - end the practice of police investigating police. For an independent enquiry into the death of Terrance Briscoe. Establish elected community based review boards with the full legal and legislative powers to investigate, discipline and charge police, prison and custodial health officers found to be involved in a death in custody, negligence or lack of duty of care

End the harassment of deaths in custody families. Provide funding for families who have lost a loved one in custody to meet to allow their collective demands to be formulated, including suitable and adequate compensation. Use the $590,000 in fine money to establish a trust to honour the memory of Mr Ward. Erect a plaque at the fence line to remember TJ and publicise that his death was caused by a police chase.
