One of the recommendations of the Bringing Them Home Report into the Stolen Generations tabled 25 years ago was for a compensation scheme. While other states have schemes in place, sadly, WA does not.
We want to change this before we lose any more of our old people.
We have teamed up with Yokai Healing our Spirit and Kimberley Stolen Generation Aboriginal Corp to launch this petition today on Sorry Day.
The petition asks the Legislative Council to undertake an Inquiry into Compensation Schemes in other States and Territories in Australia for those who suffered because of forcible removal policies and make recommendations to the Government of Western Australia in relation to the establishment of a Compensation or Reparation Scheme in that regard in Western Australia.
Please help us by signing this formal petition registered in the WA Legislative Council. Make sure you share this far and wide!
