L-Fresh the Lion talks to us about Invasion Day or Survival Day

Australia Day is celebrated as a symbol of multiculturalism in Australia, but the first Australians, the indigenous communities, regard it as Invasion Day - the day their land was invaded; or as Survival Day - a day they rally together to keep their culture and traditions alive.


Sukhdeep Singh Bhogal, aka L-Fresh the Lion joined the first Australians on January 26, when they came together in Treasury Gardens of Melbourne. Sukhdeep tells us what he has learnt about Survival Day from Australia's indigenous people.

Reasons behind family violence in the Australian Indian community

The statistics related to family violence in Australia are truly horrifying:


At least one woman is killed every week in Australia, by her intimate partner;

One in three women have suffered family violence at some point in their lives;

And Police admit " women are safer in the streets, than at home", because a majority of assaults against women are carried out within the family home.


Although there are no formal statistics for incidence of family violence (or deaths) in the Australian Indian community, recent headlines have reminded us that intimate partner violence claims many lives within the Indian community as well.


In just the past two months (Dec 2014 - Jan 2015), the Victorian Indian community has lost three lives to suicide / homicide within the household.


Here is a discussion with Jasvinder Sidhu about the reasons behind family violence in the Australian Indian community. Jasvinder Sidhu is the founder - secretary of Jagriti, who along with Co-Health, have been commissioned by the Victorian government to help prevent instances of family violence in the Victorian Indian community.


If you are seeking help regarding a family violence matter, please call 1800 RESPECT or 1800 737 732. This is a free call, from anywhere within Australia and an interpreter can be arranged, in you can't speak in English. In case of emergency, please call 000
