5:05 am
it just to come back to you there have been further developments in the last few hours what have we been hearing from the brooks family about all this what we know a little bit more about mr brooks that he was a father of 3 children that in fact the day he died he should have taken his youngest daughter to a birthday party but the family has now hired some pretty experienced lawyers who've worked on some of these other cases where african-american men have died in the hands of the police and they say there are some very serious questions that need to be asked and as we are just getting this case the details are just getting more horrific because there were multiple witnesses out there we talked to some witnesses today who said that the officers went in put on plastic gloves and picked up their cell casings after they killed him before remembering 8 we counted to minutes and 16 seconds before that he then said this.

5:20 am
comments that he made denying that israel has a history of slavery his comments angered aboriginal australians as well as descendants of pacific islanders who say their ancestors were brought to work on sugar plantations for little or no pay morrison says he did not mean to cause offense i've always said we need to look at our history one of the comments i was referring to was to how the new south wales settlement was 1st established and the views that were communicated at the time in forming the new south wales colony and you go back to people like william wilberforce and others they were very involved in that 1st fleet expedition and one of the principals was to be the destroyer in that case new south wales was was not to have slavery well that's now speak to dominic o'sullivan he's an associate professor of political science at charles sturt university where his research focuses on comparative indigenous politics he joins us now from canberra dominic let's start with this apology from scott
5:21 am
morrison do you believe this was sincere or given the depth of public sentiment around racism at the moment more about political expediency. would prevent a combination of both i think. like many countries in the world australia doesn't know its history terribly well and it has a habit of. think using those bits of it history of its history that it doesn't like cause it could cause tension or embarrassment to a standard like difficulty in the present and i think. what morrison's initial comment denying slavery might have brain and off the cuff remark. was it was simply a mistake. the fact that he retracted it so quickly i think he realized it was a sign that he had realized that he really couldn't if they'd just as a nation because what he said was not true and in the evidence that it's not true is compelling and so rather than have
5:22 am
a political fight or something because when he offered this apology in the hope that that the issue would go away to some degree. in other respects i think. what it's done is just heart they significance of the society knowing its history they know also. put into the australian mind the idea that it's only history isn't good in some respects saw dominic right now the conversation that's happening in australia isn't just about slavery but broadly about how the country treats its indigenous peoples i believe you're from new zealand which has taken a very different approach given the australian government's history of policies when it comes to indigenous affairs and push back against any kind of a treaty there do you get the sense that anything is really going to change despite the public demand for more action here. will lives in significant in the
5:23 am
meantime building out behind a movement for a guaranteed indigenous voice to parliament the government is very much opposed to it but the number of public opinion polls have suggested that the public doesn't share their opposition. certainly indigenous politics is rather well organized in there as it has saved the main building so i don't think we're going to say such a thing users again until you voice to the parliament and trying to be australian constitution any time 2nd. i think we're going to get there at some point. the black lives man has released a room the world. help help to get impetus to that movement and. help to keep the issues at the forefront of people's minds and that's something that scott morrison probably doesn't want he doesn't want the treatment of indigenous peoples to attract from the other things he wrote i'm talking about so
5:24 am
the black lives matter really exactly hopeful in that respect well scott morrison as you say is not keen to have this conversation he's also now advising people to avoid these anti-racism rallies that we've been saying he's saying out of concern for corona virus spread whereas public sentiment and movement now well the there are some very. last week an australia which took place against public health advice so i guess it's a sign of the depth of public figure and. one can only imagine how big those really smart have been and taken place at a time where that public health concern wasn't present dominic isola been there an associate professor of political science at charles that university great to get your insights a hand out of there thanks for joining us thank you. venezuela's opposition leader says he doesn't recognize the appointment of
