I'm fucking disgusted

I was just reading the guff that every hotel/motel has to tell you about the attractions in the area.

At the bottom of the sheet was this piece of work;

[quote]Saloon Bar

This will be a cultural surprise, open your mind before going, all welcome.[/quote]

Now I know why all the Abo's were in congregating in droves around the motel. They were waiting for the Saloon Bar to open. The motel treats them as fucking entertainment, yep, drunk Abo's!! a cultural surprise, that they made drunk by supplying them with the liquor.

Now you know why I am fucking disgusted.

Whatever you do readers never, ever stay at the Kimberley Hotel in Halls Creek.

This posting has been emailed to the management. I suggest you email them too!!!

    Sorry Adolf, dead wrong.  Actually Aboriginals were hunted and exterminated all over Australia.  Particularly aggressively in WA and Queensland.

     All of this is documented, including the neck chainings and marching hundreds of miles, with dead and dying comrades still chained to the others until the whole chain can't carry the dead ones, at which point they are left in the bush, or the kicking the heads off babies, or the pitchforkings of family groups who were found by their cooking fires at night.

     If you want to talk truth you aren't entitled to your own facts.  This was not simply a Tasmanian thing.  It is a very real and not very nice part of Australian history.

    Really?  How strange that in all the years I lived in WA, not one Aboriginal activist mentioned these events that I can recall – and there were and are plenty of activists.  Stranger still that you provide no links to your 'it's all documented' claim.

    Dr Anderson said the Queen could apologise both for the arches and the suffering Aborigines endured under the British Empire.

    ATSIC deputy chairman Ray Robinson also said the British monarchy should apologise for what he said was the "genocide" suffered by Aborigines.

    Bob Weatherall, FAIRA Aboriginal Corporation's cultural officer for repatriation of remains, said the Queen also could play an influential part in promoting legislation in Britain to allow its Natural History Museum to return more remains of Aborigines "hunted down by the British for their body parts".

    The Tasmanian Aboriginal Centre, which represents descendants of extinct Tasmanian Aborigines, said a formal royal apology would be welcome but was sceptical it would carry much weight

    restoring identity report

    Between 1910 and 1970 up to 100,000 Aboriginal children were taken forcibly or under duress from their families bypolice or welfare officers .

    Most were under 5 years old. There was rarely any judicial process. To be Aboriginal was enough. They are known as the ‘Stolen Generations’.

    what happened to them?what happened to them?

    • Most were raised in Church or state institutions. Some were fostered or adopted by white parents.
    • Many suffered physical and sexual abuse. Food and living conditions were poor.
    • They received little education, and were expected to go into low grade domestic and farming work.

    why where they taken?why were they taken?

    They were taken because it was Federal and State Government policy that Aboriginal children – especially those of mixed Aboriginal and European descent – should be removed from their parents.

    Between 10 and 30% of all Aboriginal children
    were removed, and in some places these policies continued into the 1970s.

    • The main motive was to ‘assimilate’ Aboriginal children into European society over one or two generations by denying and destroying their Aboriginality.
    • Speaking their languages and practising their ceremonies was forbidden
    • They were taken miles from their country, some overseas
    • Parents were not told where their children were and could not trace them
    • Children were told that they were orphans
    • Family visits were discouraged or forbidden; letters were destroyed.

    what where the resultswhat were the results

    The physical and emotional damage to those taken away was profound and lasting:

    • Most grew up in a hostile environment without family ties or cultural identity.
    • As adults, many suffered insecurity, lack of self esteem, feelings of worthlessness, depression, suicide, violence, delinquency, abuse of alcohol and drugs and inability to trust.
    • Lacking a parental model, many had difficulty bringing up their own children.
    • The scale of separation also had profound consequences for the whole Aboriginal community – anger, powerlessness and lack of purpose as well as an abiding distrust of Government, police and officials.

    Actions and Campaignswhat is being done?

    A National Inquiry was set up in 1995. Its 1997 Report ‘Bringing them Home’ contained harrowing evidence.

    It found that forcible removal of indigenous children was a gross violation of human rights which continued well after Australia had undertaken international human rights commitments.

    • It was racially discriminatory, because it only applied to Aboriginal children on that scale, and
    • It was an act of genocide contrary to the Convention on Genocide, (which forbids ‘forcibly transferring children of [a] group to another group’ with the intention of destroying the group.)

    The Report made 54 recommendations, including opening of records, family tracing and reunion services and the need for reparations’ (including acknowledgement and apology by Governments and institutions concerned, restitution, rehabilitation and compensation).

    The Government increased some funding but has refused to apologise or offer compensation.

    A Senate committee has investigated the Government’s response to the Report.

    People of the Stolen Generation have started legal actions for compensation against the Government .

    The cases have been hard fought, as Government lawyers are arguing that removal of children was done for their own good.

    A statement by the former Aboriginal Affairs Minister John Herron which denyied existance of the ‘stolen generations’ caused distress and anger among those affected. Denial has marked much of the commentary.

    'Moving forward: achieving reparations' is a project conducted in partnership with ATSIC, the Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission, the National Sorry Day Committee and Northern Territory stolen generation groups.

    It's report 'Restoring identity', proposing a reparations tribunal for the stolen generations, has widespread support by Indigenous people.

    Ministers for Aboriginal Affairs in Victoria, Queensland, South Australia and Western Australia issued public statements welcoming the report and detailing their initiatives to implement the recommendations.

    You have totally missed the points that I was 'Pontificating' about.


    1) apply the law equally.
    2) The Alcohol like the Opium keeps its addicts controlled.
    3) Yes you are quite right these particular people in this particular town have not personally had children stolen or been hunted…DUH!
    My point was about an Australian society that feels guilty for past injustices and therefore goes to the extreme when allowing these alcoholics the FREEDOM to drink until they pass out.
    Kind of like a parent who overcompensates for the fact that Mummy and Daddy have divorced by setting no boundaries at all and letting the kids do whatever they like.

    Now don't go claiming that I am saying that the Aboriginies are children! It is an analogy duh!
  • Adolf fiinkensein

    Spanishbride, too many duhs spoiuls the post.

    Your naivite is exposed by your socialist wish to have one law for all – in this particular instance.  Be informed that it is exactly that insistence on the part of said weepy eyed whitey liberal churchmen and unionists which actually caused the problem by destroyinh a more than one hundred year old useful, practical, symbiotic, non alcoholic relationship between the the white cattle barons and tha local blackfellas.

    In many ways the plight of the abos is one of the most dramatic examples of the results of meddling socialist nanny staters.  Are you one of them? 

  • Spanishbride

    DUH! no, in real life I am Mrs Whaleoil LOL

    I believe in giving a person a hand up not a hand out, a fishing rod not a fish.

    One law for all is hardly Socialist, Socialist believe in POSITIVE descrimination as if such a thing could ever be positive!
    They believe in treating certain people differently. 

    I am a Capitalist, I believe in equal opportunity for everyone and one law for all.
    Welfare has weakened and damaged generations of Nzers ability to work and their self respect. Welfare is also effectively destroying the Aboriginals.

    You really are barking up the wrong tree calling me a socialist. Caring about the vulnerable does not make a person a Socialist.
