26 May |NITV | Nation reflects on Stolen Generations

On the 17th Anniversary of the release of the Bringing them Home report, Indigenous families across the country held rallies to highlight their concerns of a new stolen generation.

In 1997, the Bringing them Home Report was tabled in the federal parliament. Recommendations included financial commitments to allow families to record their stories as well as some form of reparation for those forcibly removed.

In 2008, the then Prime Minister apologised to the Stolen generations for the policies of forced removal of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children. But today, there are major concerns that the removal of Indigenous children is still continuing at an alarming rate.
