Australia to apologize to its aboriginal people
The Rudd Labor government will formally say sorry to members of the indigenous stolen generation when federal parliament resumes in Canberra next month.
Prime Minister Kevin Rudd will deliver the apology on February 13, more than 10 years since the Bringing Them Home human rights report recommended the government say sorry for the policy of removing indigenous children from their parents.
It will be the first item of business for the new parliament.
An Aboriginal welcome to country ceremony will take place as part of the opening proceedings for parliament the day before. -The Age
For background information I recommend watching Rabbit Proof Fence which I reviewed two years ago..
