DEG's submission to NSW Legislative Council Inquiry into reparations for Stolen Generations

Dharriwaa Elders Group made a submission 19 October 2015 to NSW Legislative Council General Purpose Standing Committee No.3 Inquiry into reparations for the Stolen Generations in NSW.

The submission calls for the NSW Government to recognise and apologise formally to the Stolen Generations in each NSW community affected, and to establish an entity that investigates and administers a Stolen Generations Reparation Fund that supports a Stolen Generations Health Care Card and other reparation initiatives. Importantly the submission witnesses the ongoing damage to the Walgett Aboriginal community from NSW Government policies and calls for locally-driven NSW Aboriginal cultural community development activities to be supported urgently.
