Summary
Speech; suggests that the philosophical framework for our Australian discourse about justice, peace and friendship has not been founded on any basis of fairness and equity; it has been carefully crafted on the notion of assimilation - from the White Australia policy, to the removal of children and subjecting these children to exclusive western education and its values; the act of apology and its acceptance by Indigenous Australia has given an opportunity to begin a new dialogue about the future relationship between Indigenous peoples and the modern settler state; the spirituality and culture of Aboriginal people offers ways to get back in touch with the sacredness of the country and as a way of rejuvenating the relationship between the Indigenous and the settler peoples; we are global citizens and are obliged to think and operate universally; we need to change the "for their own good" approach on Aboriginal issues in order to go forward as a society where "the worth and contribution to the nation of every citizen is recognsied, encouraged and supported"; discusses the intervention in the Northern Territory and the importance of allowing Aboriginal people to determine outcomes and be resourced for it; reiterates the question Michael Long asked Prime Minister Howard "where is the love for my people"; there is a chance to construct a new society built on equality and justice and in harmony with the land and its people
