Since Mulrunji’s death in a Palm Island police cell in 2004 the Doomadgee family have lost two more members and a close family friend through grief. “An enormous amount to bear for any family”, said Bob Weatherall, Aboriginal activist and member of the band Dick Desert & The Shotgun Country Club. Already struggling families have lost income while relatives have been imprisoned. “We’re talking everyday costs like rent and hire purchase that have to be made up for. That is why the band decided to help out with a benefit gig”, Weatherall said.
The gig will show the families on Palm Island that they are not alone.
