11 April | NIRS | Greens praise Koori grandmothers for anti-child removal work

New South Wales – State Greens MP David Shoebridge has praised a group of Koori women who are leading a protest against the child protection system.

The Grandmothers Against Removals group will rally in Tamworth today against the Department of Community Services.

The group says too often, Koori kids who are deemed to be neglected are being put through the system, rather than being able to stay with extended family.

Mr Shoebridge (pictured) says they have reason to be extremely concerned.
