Whose sovereignty is really being fought for? What happens when First Nations People are dragged into extremist protests

Research output: Contribution to journalOnline ResourceProfessional

Abstract

[Extract]
Over the past few weeks we have seen First Nations people protesting alongside alt-right “freedom” protesters at Old Parliament House in Canberra.

With this we saw a classic example of the alt-right trying to recruit disaffected marginalised people for their own ends.

This is not only dangerous given what we know about the history of First Nations peoples’ interactions with police, it also perpetuates a stereotype of First Nations people that we are dysfunctional, disunited and do not know what we want.
