Seventh Anniversary of the National Apology
The Apology to Australia's Indigenous Peoples was delivered by then Prime Minister Kevin Rudd on February 13, 2008, and acknowledged in particular the Stolen Generations.
The children that were removed and separated from their families grew up without an understanding of traditional culture and without a sense of connection to the land and country where they were born.
This disconnection from their families, ancestors, communities and culture has had a lasting and negative effect on the wellbeing and identity of Stolen Generations members, and has had an inter-generational impact on their children and families.
The AEU will continue to fight alongside Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people for recognition, self-determination and equal opportunities and outcomes.
