Presented by Swerv and Soju Gang, Spinning In Solidarity is an online fundraiser event featuring artists and DJ's coming together and sharing their passion for music to raise funds in solidarity for the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Community.
"As we watch from afar the continued killing of the black community in the US, we mourn and seek justice for lives taken at the hands of those sworn to serve and protect. Yet at the same time a dark reality is revealed, this is not an American issue - we do not sit on a higher moral ground as a country.
Our Aboriginal and Torres Strait community face the same violence - and for too long we have ignored them. Their deaths go unnoticed and their fight for justice is swept aside. It’s time we stand up for our blak community here at home.
We stand in solidarity with the Aboriginal and Torres Strait community of the land of which we live; and plan to use this time to do our part in seeking justice for the violence continuously faced by our police, and its government."
A Go Fund Me webpage has been set up as a central place to donate with the aim of raising $20, 000. The chosen funds include:
- In Memory of Joyce Carter Fund
- Warriors of the Aboriginal Resistance (WAR)
- Justice for David Dungay Junior
- Emergency Fundraiser to Support the Family of Aunty Tanya Day for her death in custody coronial inquest.
Make sure you tune in Live from Twitch Monday 8th June 2.30 pm-9 pm AEST and if you can, donate to a great this cause.
