ariane’s tiny revolution

  • difficulty rating: not doable
  • current status: too big

the doing: this submission was too big

ariane’s submission raised a very important australian issue of aboriginal deaths in custody that is extremely overwhelming and requires a lot of attention. the sydney pvi rebels felt the discussion was a good starting point but unfortunately the action devised at the ‘think’ table was not ‘doable’. 

the process and the action generated through the whole process did not feel rigorous enough, culturally safe or appropriate to deliver. 

we felt a more meaningful action to minimise trivialising this issue, was to make a donation to the ‘sisters inside program’. we donated $250 on sunday 1st november.

the submission:

what overwhelms you?

“A particular issue that came to my attention today is 2 deaths in custody in Victoria, aboriginal women arrested for shoplifting. I’m not overwhelmed I’m outraged and hurt.”

why?

“Why is this happening in our society? There’s no viable reason. Racism is at the core and it feels like a rawness in the pit of my stomach. Aboriginal women should be held in high regard in this country, if not venerated.”

ariane, 14.9.20.

what is the idea we are moving forward with?
