Australia will make a formal apology to the indigenous stolen generations

Indigenous Affairs Minister Jenny Macklin today announced the apology would be the first item of business for the new parliament.
Ms Macklin today said the apology was the “first, necessary step to move forward from the past”.

“The apology will be made on behalf of the Australian Government and does not attribute guilt to the current generation of Australian people,” she said.

It wasn't just the Australian government which organised this...many Australians, including myself, wrote and demanded that they do so...

Once more, after over ten years of stagnation under a Howard government, I am proud to be an Australian!
