National Talkblack 191120

We had:

Fern and Mikaela from Marrawah Law talking about the High Court decision: Can an Aboriginal person be an alien? On 11 February 2020, the High Court of Australia had to decide whether Aboriginal persons can be deported under the Migration Act using the ‘alien power’ in the Constitution.

Dr Marilyn Clarke and Dr Joel Wenitong who are partnering with Cancer Council and the Australian Government to encourage Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities to prioritise cancer screening. Hear Dr Marilyn speak about the importance of breast and cervical screening and Dr Joel speak to a male audience on bowel screening.
