Five Years On

Wednesday 13th February / posted by Martine Linton

Five years ago today the Federal Government issued an apology to Indigenous Australians for the "laws and policies of successive Parliaments and governments that have inflicted profound grief, suffering and loss on these our fellow Australians… especially for the removal of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children from their families, their communities and their country" into state-run institutions.

Jim Morrison was the Chairman of the Stolen Generation Alliance, a position he held for three years until he decided to retire from the position in December of last year. He was also one of the people that helped word the actual apology that was read out by Kevin Rudd.

Jim Morrison joined Jude Reczek on Morning Magazine to take a look at what has changed since that historic day and what lies ahead for us all as a unified people.
