CD Cover ArtThis Sunday marks 30 years since the death of 16-year-old John Pat, who died in a Roeburn prison cell in 1983.

His death prompted the State Government to instigate the Royal Commission into Aboriginal Deaths in Custody.

John’s story will be honoured through the launch of ‘Murru’, an album produced by local high profile musicians together with the Roebourne community and inmates from Roebourne Regional Prison.

Proceeds from the album will go towards the memorial in John’s home town. An official launch for the album will be held this Sunday, at the Fly By Night Musicians Club in  Fremantle.

Tickets are available from or by calling 9430 5976.
