6 Feb | NIRS |Family rights advocates to head to Canberra for protest | Cassandra Tim CLICK HERE TO LISTEN TO AUDIO. The National Sovereign Grannies Group is calling for support as the removal rates of our kids from family increase. The rates of Indigenous children in out-of-home care has risen 65 per cent since the National Apology in 2008, according to the latest Report on Government Services. Grandmothers Against Removals will be holding a rally at Parliament House in Canberra on February 13, marking seven years of Sorry Day. Kukuyalanji woman and spokesperson for the grannies’ group, Karen Fusi, says the increasing rates of child removal contradict the National Apology.
