The new Prime Minister says SORRY while the old PM turns his back on the whole affair. Thursday, Feb 14 2008
The National Apology has taken place, the stolen generations are now seen as human beings instead of (at worse) curiosities most damaged by the decisions of previous governments and parliaments . . . and what does John Howard do at this defining hour?, he stays away and turns his back on the progress made – shame on you Howard!To mark this multi-generational apology I’m publishing three ‘sorry’ graphics from my ephemera archive, two are as old as the orignal goings-on and the last one is from 2005 when many Australians raised their voices against this dishonourable failure to set the record straight.
The Apology transcript is here – http://www.theage.com.au/news/national/bfull-textb/2008/02/12/1202760291188.html
More sorry signs here.
