Converge on Canberra
"We don't want to be asking for another apology in 20 years"
31 Jan 08: "Support swells for Convergence on Canberra
against the NT intervention on the opening day of
parliament. ... The Convergence on Canberra on Feb 12
against the Northern Territory intervention and for
Aboriginal Rights is gaining significant momentum. Recent
endorsements include the NSW Reconciliation Council, the
NSW Aboriginal Land Council, NSW Teacher's Federation,
GetUp! and Amnesty International. On the day before Kevin
Rudd will say "sorry" to the stolen generations, the
Convergence will stand against the continuing racism and
paternalism underlying policy being rolled out in the NT."
