Grandmothers Against Removal - Aboriginal Tent Embassy, Canberra

On the 8th anniversary of Kevin Rudd's apology for Australia's 'Stolen Generation' - the historical and systematic forced removal of Aboriginal children from their families - a group of Aboriginal grandmothers from all corners of Australia gathered at the Aboriginal Tent Embassy in Canberra to protest against the continued removal of children from their families. Since Rudd's apology, forced removals of Aboriginal children have increased by 400% - what the grandmothers say is a new and devastating stolen generation, an ongoing tactic of genocide since 1788.
