Shame Australia

50 years since Indigenous Australians were given the right to vote, our first peoples are as bad off as ever – Physically, socially, emotionally, educationally and economically. The reason I worked with Aboriginal communities is because I was so ashamed of the unnecessary disadvantage. Despite the federal governments Close the Gap initiative and Northern Territory interventions (another means of dispossession to support developing the North and supporting big industry), the federal governments of past and present have failed miserably to meet the fundamental needs and human rights of our First Peoples.

From Oxfam :

“Our First Nation’s people represent one of the most impoverished and disadvantaged communities in the world.

The failure of successive governments to listen to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples is condemning too many Indigenous Australians to stark inequality and entrenched disadvantage.”

    We have the same type of issues here in Canada in regards to the Native Aboriginal Indians. Broken treaties and genocide of the people/culture.
    Occasionally the PTB will graciously give back a small portion of what was stolen.
    And of course it always is a long battle just getting even that small bit back.

  2. Hello Bright long time no see my friend !

    • Thanks Being, looks like a nice introduction to Falun Dafa. It seems that the practice has helped you to grow and to bring more love and compassion out into the world. Thanks for taking personal responsibility to make the world a better place and for making your video ! Keep up your practice and the important work of sharing ! 😉
