โ€œAustralian youth prisons are institutional racism in action. Criminalising the behaviour of young, vulnerable children โ€“ who are mostly Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander โ€“ creates further disadvantage and traps children in the criminal justice system,โ€ Axleby said.

โ€œRaising the age is a simple reform that would make a world of difference,โ€ Barson said. #raisetheageBLACK LIVES MATTER
