Abstract: The second part of Judy Atkinson's article on violence in our communities shows in more detail the way the abuse is learned and goes in cycles, so that those who are victims pass it on to others by becoming violent themselves or somehow ending up as victims within a violent relationship. This cycle of abuse dates back to the way Whites have treated Blacks from first contact until today, where it has become the chain by which Aboriginal people are bound down and kept down. Alien laws from alien lands placed it there. Only the combined strength of Black hands, linked together as a community, can break it.
