This forum is in support of the National Aboriginal Strategic Alliance to Bring the Children Home (NASA).
With almost 14,000 Indigenous children removed from their homes in 2013, more children are now being taken away than at any previous time in Australia’s black and white history. Internationally, this is considered a crisis with the Guardian reporting that Indigenous Children are 10.6 times more likely to be removed from home.
The Newtown Amnesty Action Group is proud to collaborate with the National Aboriginal Strategic Alliance to Bring Aboriginal Children Home (NASA) to host a forum that will raise awareness and contribute to a campaign to end the forced and punitive removal of children from Indigenous families in many communities around Australia.
The evening will be chaired by Aunty Deb Swan (GMAR NSW) and Ken Welsh (AIA Newtown) and speakers from Grandmothers Against Removal, Secretariat of National Aboriginal and Islander Child Care (SNAICC), Wirriga Society USYD, affected families and supporters will address the issues of what is becoming known as another Stolen Generation.
Join us to take action with a national people’s movement that can build the grass-roots pressure to stop the ongoing Stolen Generations and fight the systemic disadvantage facing Indigenous people. Call on governments to return these children home!
This is a free event. We will ask attendees on the night to make a gold coin donation towards the cost of venue and refreshments.
