Today’s Pro Bono news cartoon.

‘Disability advocates fear the introduction of independent assessments in the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a cost cutting measure to reduce the number of people in the program, despite the government’s insistence the change will make the eligibility process simpler and fairer.’ Today’s Pro Bono news cartoon. 

Last week’s Pro Bono news cartoon came together after reading Moira Were’s ‘End of the Nest Egg?’, posted on Linkedin.

Black lives matter, by Kate Auty, the Last Word article in the next quarterly issue of The Alternative Law Journal. Auty refers to Chris Owen’s 2016 book on the Western Australian policing of Aboriginal people – Every Mother’s son is guilty, and in particular the cover photograph, taken around 1900, of nearly 100 Aboriginal men and boys neck chained for ‘cattle killing’. The significance of the woodpile in the background is explained. Auty underlines the links between the needs expressed in the Uluru Statement – voice, treaty and truth telling – ‘with both the colonial past and the contemporary anger and grief which sits under the campaign about why black lives matter and why protest is critically important.’

Here is my cartoon to illustrate the article and the cover of the book.
