Anthem protests in sports continue as Australian athletes vow to act

Former rugby league star and professional boxer Anthony Mundine has called on all players at this weekend’s National Rugby League (NRL) and Australian Football League (AFL) grand finals to boycott the Australian national anthem.

Mundine shared a video via Facebook urging athletes to make a statement in support of the indigenous community.

Mundine is the latest sports star to protest against racial inequality and injustice, following the growing campaign in the US started by San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
