Summary
Examines the Mulrunji case in the context of the liberal, postcolonial view of history that is being promulgated by the Prime Minister and is being taken up by wider Australia; the case demonstrates that Australia today is still very much a colonial place, as there is emerging a view of history that acknowldges the wrongs done to Indigenous Australians in the past but that sees itselvf as having meaningfully departed from this time of colonial violence, so that what is emerging now is a "blue wristband" view of history which denies the exiwstence of colonial power relations while actively reproducing them [from p. 248]; the blue wristband refers to the wristbans which were produced by the poloice to raise money for Chris Hurley's legal costs
