Custody-death inquest for Aunty Tanya Day considers the role played by systemic racism.

Heather interviews Latoya Aroha Rule, who has been attending the inquest into the death-in-custody of Aunty Tanya Day.

“In December 2017, Aunty Tanya Day, a proud Yorta Yorta woman and a respected and much-loved member of the Aboriginal community in Victoria, was travelling by train to Melbourne. She was asleep when a V/Line worker decided she needed to be removed from the train and called Castlemaine police who arrested her for public drunkenness. While in police custody in Castlemaine she fell and sustained injuries that claimed her life 17 days later.”
