quotes from the MIMC article:
"Since then the Island community have been placed in a state of
emergency and over two hundred police were sent to the Island to clam
the community after the Coroner released the report on the autopsy of
the deceased found that the death was an accident. "
"This is now a state of emergency for our Peoples and we are being
isolated from the rest of Australia. The witnesses are in danger and the
police have locked up Aboriginal People. They are in fear of their
lives. Not one Aboriginal leader has visited the Island and the National
Indigenous Human Rights Congress Australia is allowed to go to the island. "
