NITV News continues to follow the story of a family in Moree who had 8 children removed from their care in January. Footage aired by NITV shows riot police – members of the Operational Support Group – conducting an early morning raid to assist FACS officers in the removal of the children. The Greens are expected to table a motion this week which will put this issue onto the Federal agenda.
The motion will address concerns about the development of a new Stolen Generation and will point out that one in 10 Aboriginal children is in out-of-home care in New South Wales.
Meanwhile – the Family says the children remain traumatised by the incident and they want answers on why the riot squad was involved. Natalie Ahmat spoke to the Aunty of the children.
