R.I.P. Patrick Fisher - Rally

This morning, around 200-300 people commemorated the life of the late Patrick Fisher, who last Wednesday, died while allegedly fleeing from police. He allegedly fell from a thirteenth floor balcony at the Joseph Banks Tower in the Waterloo public housing estate.

Speakers remembered the popular 31-year old and called for an independent inquiry, community action and justice, given the ongoing Aboriginal deaths in police custody.

The crowd then marched to Redfern Park to the chants of "Too many coppers, not enough justice!" as police looked on. More speeches from family and community members were held at the park. 

The police are conducting a critical incident review into Wednesday's events.

Patrick Fisher leaves behind, three sons, a mother, brothers, sisters and a large extended family, many who were present today.
