Going Underground: Is Australia committing crimes against humanity against indigenous people?

"We speak to the director of the Dumbartung Aboriginal Corporation, Robert Eggington, who discusses the recent revelations on the level of involvement of Buckingham Palace on the dismissal of Australian PM Gough Whitlam and whether his ouster made any difference to Aboriginal Australians, the extreme societal problems faced by Aboriginal Australians such as mass incarceration, third-world levels of poverty and high suicide rates, how the development of the Australian state has coincided with the destruction of Aboriginal people and culture, the role of mining companies in this destruction of indigenous people and culture, the perceived unfairness of Australia’s judicial system and more! Finally, we speak to Marco Sánchez Cantillo, director of ‘The State of Food Security and Nutrition in the World’ 2020 report of the UN Food and Agriculture Organization. He discusses the rising levels of hunger and how almost 9% of the world’s population face hunger, how coronavirus is expected to rapidly increase food insecurity and world hunger, how protectionism and trade blocs such as the EU are making it harder for people in poorer countries to afford a healthy diet, the progress of China in poverty reduction and much more!"
