The Mission: Apryl Watson Reflects On The Inquisition Into Tanya Day’s Death

Yorta Yorta woman Tanya Day’s tragic and preventable death in December 2017 was referred to the Department of Public Prosecutions following the coroner’s request for an inquisition into criminal negligence. Last week, after months of deliberation, the court recognised that racial motivations spurred her arrest and detainment across multiple levels. Apryl Watson, Tanya’s daughter, reflects on the findings and discusses how there is still so far to go before the systemic racism against within our social institutions is properly recognised and addressed.
