Protestors to march on NSW parliament

AAP logoAAP 3/08/2016

Protesters are preparing to march on NSW's Parliament House on Aboriginal Children's Day in a call for justice for children abused in Australian prisons.

The group Grandmothers Against Removals wants money spent on children's prisons and foster care redirected towards Aboriginal-controlled development and support programs.

A royal commission into the Northern Territory's youth detention system was announced last week after footage emerged of boys being stripped naked, tear-gassed and held in solitary confinement at a Darwin detention centre.

On Saturday, thousands rallied across the country against the abuse of Aboriginal children.

Those involved in Thursday's protest are expected to gather at noon at Sydney's Family Law Courts before marching on Parliament House.
