Well, I'm going to admit that I know little to nothing about Australia's Aborigine population. I know they were there first, that many children were forcibly removed from their homes and taken to "missions" and that things are still pretty bad. That's my full knowledge. This morning in the news the Government finally apoligised (and used the word "sorry") for the terrible treatment over the years. Aparently the previous government had spent a decede refusing that simple dignity, and the new government has made promises for better health care and education opportunities (I think). Anyway, If you want to know more, Here are some interesting links:

Apology to the People
Australia in Pictures
Stolen Generations

All of these are BBC News Links, all are recent news, and all contain shocking information. What do you think?
