European Network for Indigenous Australian Rights (ENIAR) – National Sorry Day
Sorry Day remembers the ‘stolen generations’ of Aboriginal children taken from their families as recently as the 1960s to be brought up in state and religious institutions. It also seeks to acknowledge and mitigate the devastating social and economic consequences for the children and for successive generations of Aboriginal families and to foster healing among indigenous and non-indigenous Australians.
Sorry Day 2005 will be marked for the first time this year in UK. A lunch time gathering of Aboriginal storytelling, music, dance and poetry will take place in Lincoln’s Inn Fields WC2 from 12.00 to 2.30 pm on Wednesday 25 May to remember the stolen generations, to tell the stories and to heal the wounds. All are welcome.
