A com­pelling ad­vo­cate and ac­tivist

The Saturday Paper - - Letters & Editorial -

I was im­pressed by the ar­ti­cle by Dy­lan Voller. I still re­mem­ber the shock­ing footage of him shack­led in a re­strain­ing chair with a spit hood over his head at the Don Dale de­ten­tion cen­tre. It was hard to be­lieve this was hap­pen­ing in Aus­tralia. Like Dy­lan, I won­der why the cen­tre was not closed after the re­port from the royal com­mis­sion. How this young man has turned his life around is in­cred­i­ble. How good it is that he is now fight­ing for change for other young Abo­rig­ines. Con­sid­er­ing his lack of ed­u­ca­tion over the years, he is ex­tremely bright and writes so well. I wish him the best for his fu­ture, the fu­ture that he says ev­ery child de­serves.
