"The overwhelming number of Australians were glad to see the PM at the time apologise for past wrongs"If you read my post you will see that I agree with most of what you say. However, I believe the term "Invasion Day" is a misleading assessment of what happened. In fact, I think it is provocative to the good, ordinary Australians who have a deep sympathy for indigenous recognition and reconciliation. The overwhelming number of Australians were glad to see the PM at the time apologise for past wrongs. What is it that the proponents of "Invasion Day" want? Do they want us to all pack up and go back to where our ancestors originated? Like that's going to happen. We don't hold current day Germans responsible for what happened during WW2.
Sure about that? If that was the case why did it take over a decade and a change of government for it to occur? You want to know why things escalated to the point of labelling it "Invasion Day" thank John Howard's culture wars with his cheerleaders in the Murdoch press.
