Arms to Reserves

Arms to Reserves

He stated that he wanted to send arms to the Aboriginal reserves. He was vigorously questioned on the point of carrying guns, but replied with the answer: "It would give me a lot of pride to walk down the street carrying a gun to make sure no pig could touch me ... we want human rights".

Another Black Panther, Sue Chilly, also spoke on the suppression of Aborigines, especially in Brisbane. Her speech seemed to be more one of personal experience than that of Dennis Walker and she drove home her point more dearly. She said she realised that the more fortunate Blacks had to help others who are Jess lucky, and because of the intolerable discrimination against herself and other Aboriginal friends in Brisbane, she had "joined the Black Panther Party to do her bit to smash the white capitalist system".
