In Australia, Indigenous people seek justice through our courts and parliaments in a country that still finds itself unable to speak the truth of history or fully reckon with its great sins. Yet brave people fight on because it is all they have, and savour those precious if too rare victories — those glimpses of justice that the family of George Floyd saw this week. If Martin Luther King and Barack Obama were right that the moral arc of the universe bends to justice, then it is justice a long time coming. For too many people the final words of George Floyd speak to a greater truth: “I can’t breathe.”
