Calling on The Australian to apologise for Leak cartoon: Open letter from journalists, writers, artists and others

More than 200 people working in the media, communications and related fields have signed the open letter below, regarding The Australian’s recent publication of a Bill Leak cartoon attacking Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.  As recently reported at Croakey, a number of health and community organisations have also made complaints.

(This list was updated on 16 November with additional signatories).

*** This post is available to other outlets, organisations and websites that would like to publish it. Please include a link to this initial publication. ***


“We are journalists, writers, photographers, artists, publishers and others who work in the media and communications industries. Signatories also include journalism, media and communications researchers and academics.

We condemn The Australian’s publication of Bill Leak’s racist cartoon. Racism damages the health and wellbeing of those it targets.

We acknowledge that the media industry has a long history of perpetuating harmful and racist stereotypes of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, and that it is well past time that this stops.

We urge the editorial leadership at The Australian to reflect on the hurt and distress they have caused, and to make a sincere and genuine apology.”

support this alternative version:

“We are journalists, writers, photographers, artists, publishers and others who work in the media and communications industries. Signatories also include journalism, media and communications researchers and academics. We condemn The Australian’s publication of Bill Leak’s racist cartoon. Racism damages the health and wellbeing of those it targets. We acknowledge that the media industry has a long history of perpetuating harmful and racist stereotypes of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, and that it is well past time that this stops. We urge the editorial leadership of all Australian media to reflect on the hurt and distress all racial stereotyping causes and to eliminate it from our news and current affairs media.”

Croakey has published many articles about the harmful impacts of racism, including the need to address all forms of racism within the health sector. It is clear that as a country, we cannot tackle racism without addressing media practices as part of wider anti-racism work.

Meanwhile, read Luke Pearson at IndigenousX : #IndigenousDads – combating stereotypes and reclaiming the conversation.
