Summary
Discusses from a socio-legal perspective the personal experiences of stolen generation members pursuing court action; limitations of the legal system in adequately addressing the issues relevant to removal; the legal system's defence of history and maintenance of the status quo in Australian power relations; argues for a reparations-style tribunal in place of existing legal processes
