Miss Dhu, FT felix Riebl

Will we ever see a cop locked up for negligence?
Will we ever see the rock turned up on ignorance?
Will we ever see a government who first listens?
Will we ever see the stats fall in black prisons?
Did Dhu die for nothing? No she didn’t!

Ms Dhu is a protest song. It tells the story of the tragic and totally unnecessary death of a 22-year-old Aboriginal woman who died while in police custody in South Headland in 2014.  I heard about the case while travelling in the Pilbara writing songs and performing with members of the choir who feature on this album, and the joy of that experience made the proximate tragedy of Ms Dhu – not much older than the young singers I’d been working with – all the more terrible to me. We’ve dedicated this song and its proceeds to her family, who continue to search for justice in the face of endemic, institutional racism.  We hope it serves as a statement of solidarity with them and the Indigenous community as a whole.
