Australia says sorry to the Stolen Generation

February 13, 2008


Video: YouTube

The term Stolen Generation refers to the Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children, who were taken from their families by the Australian Government agencies and church missions, under various state acts of parliament.

This occurred between 1869 and 1969. These children were placed into internment camps, orphanages and other institutions.The children were denied there birth right to grow up as a part of their families.

Today, Kevin Rudd is apologizing on behalf of the nation for the way that these people were treated. At least this new government has the decency to get up and say we are SORRY.

The YouTube Video contains the following sections.

Part 1. A little History
Part 2. Personal Interviews
Part 3. Footage from Australian supporters
Part 4. Apology Speech by Kevin Rudd

For those of you who are not aware of this situation that went on in this country for about 100 years, I hope that this video by user ‘rageunderground’ from YouTube is informative.
