QLD police respond violently to Indigenous woman - Amnesty International Australia



Dear Minister,

I am extremely concerned about an incident depicted in video footage posted on Facebook on 17 January 2016 that shows a Queensland Police Officer repeatedly and forcefully pushing an Aboriginal woman.

The footage raises serious questions about the conduct of the police officers involved.

Police officers must uphold the human rights of all people, without discrimination

Sincerely,
