US Protests And The Voices That Matter
Back
play Episode

The US is alive with protests following the death of George Floyd at the hands of a white police officer. In this episode, we speak to Kee Reece about what it feels like to be told you’re “not allowed to be angry” when black men and women are being killed because of the colour of their skin. We also speak to Kamilaroi activist Amanda Fotheringham about the parallels that can be drawn between the US and Australia when it comes to racially motivated violence. 

And for a complete change of tone - Kate Middleton is pissed off. A story was published in posh British magazine Tatler all about The Duchess of Cambridge, and the Palace has called the article “sexist” and “woman-shaming”. Are we... missing something?
