The Black Lives Matter protest will be held outside the Bowral Library on Sunday at 1pm.

It follows similar protests held right across the globe

A number of our elected representatives have been critical of the protests given the threat of COVID19. but Chair of the Wingecarribee Reconciliation Group Gus Johnson says it's important their voices are heard.

He says alot of us don't realise we have our own problems here at home.

He's used the example of incarceration rates for aboriginal men which he says is 16 times worse than non aboriginal men.
