Absolutely shocking. Inhumane, this is genocide. Slowly destroying an entire race of people. Australia has no right to accuse any other country of human rights violations. There are more children being taken from their families than at the height of the stolen generations – supposedly for their safety – what bs. You cannot tell me children are removed from their families for their safety or protection. The stolen generations suffered enormous physical emotional and sexual abuse after being removed “for their benefit” – well documented – now we can see on 4 corners how they are treated in 2016 when removed from their families. Child protection workers who break up families and those nazi guards depicted on 4 corners tonight should all be incarcerated.FB POSTS
