Victoria’s Chief Health Officer Brett Sutton has urged people to stay away from Black Lives Matter protests planned for Melbourne on 6 June. Black Lives Matter protests have already been staged in Sydney and Perth, and thousands are tipped to attend the Melbourne protest. Prime Minister Scott Morrison has called for people not to "import" racial tension from the US, but indigenous leader and academic Marcia Langton says protests need to occur while indigenous Australians remain in jail in such high numbers and they continue to die in custody. Langton says indigenous Australians are the most incarcerated people in the world.
