James Cook stole Australia from the Abos

Apparently…he did, according to an artist:

IT’S NO surprise to find a bust of Captain James Cook gracing the halls of the NSW Parliament. But Jason Wing’s artwork does not treat the English explorer credited with being the first European to land on Australia’s east coast with reverence.

Wing’s Australia was Stolen by Armed Robbery features a bust of Captain Cook wearing a black balaclava, pictured. ”Australia was stolen from the Aboriginal people by lethal force,” he said.

Wing added the fate of indigenous people had deteriorated since the arrival of the First Fleet in 1788. ”Racism and criminal behaviour by the Australian government is alive and well.”

As Andrew Bolt says “One of these men apparently stole Australia from the other”. James Cook is on the left. Aboriginal artist Jason Wing is on the right.
