TRUTH OF AUSTRALIA’S STRUGGLE

29/03/2011

AUSTRALIA |

THERE’S AN ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM in Australian society, and it is the continued violation of the human rights of the Aboriginal population. As in the United States, Australia has yet to deal with its history of a European-led, organized colonizing force that committed cultural genocide against the native population.

In February 2008, Australia‘s government formally apologized for its assimilation policies and in particular to the Aboriginal population’s stolen generations.

For some Aborigines, who immediately filed suit to receive compensations, apologies are one thing; real-world action and actionable policies are another.

Three years later, Australian PM Julia Gillard issued the government’s annual report on the Aboriginal population, and put the responsibility of improving conditions in their communities squarely on Aboriginal shoulders.

The film “Our Generation” explores the unresolved issues facing Australian society and looks at the movement advocating for the rights of the Indigenous in Australia.
