SORRY REQUIRES SUBSTANCE!

 

 


 

 


On February 13, 2008, Prime Minister Kevin Rudd apologised for the hurt caused by decades of state-sponsored treatment of indigenous Australians.

Where to now?


 

 


Are the Australian people prepared to make the hard decisions and complex changes necessary to cease the entrenched disadvantage our legal policies and practices have imposed upon Aboriginal people?


Can we learn from our ancestors mistakes so that our descendants do not have to apologise for our lack of action?
