The Block Is Hot in Australia, Too

An infamous Aboriginal housing project nicknamed “the Block” in Redfern, a suburb of Sydney, was the site of 2004 riots over the death of 17-year-old Thomas Hickey, an Aboriginal boy who was killed after being impaled on a fence while fleeing from police. The Block was also the site of riots in the 1970s over forced evictions of Aboriginal residents.
