“Apology To The Stolen Generations” | The Speech Of The Prime Minister Of Australia

The speech Apology to the Stolen Generations delivered by Kevin Rudd, the Prime Minister of Australia is the public apologize made by the Prime Minister for the aboriginal population of Australia and unfair policies conducted by the Australian government in the past, including the practice of stealing children and their separation from their families of aboriginal communities. The speech intended to deliver the public apologize to the indigenous population of Australia and recognition of pitfalls and errors made by policies of the Australian government in the past. At the same time, the speech creates the framework for the future policies of the Australian government in relation to indigenous people based on equality and fairness of policies in relation to all people, regardless of their ethnic background. More specifically, Kevin Rudd promised equal education and economic opportunities for all people living in Australia.

However, the media and public response to the speech of the Prime Minister was controversial. On the one hand, the conservative part of the society was surprised by the speech after half a century of ignorance of the problem of the ‘Stolen Generation’. On the other hand, critics, especially from the part of the ‘Stolen Generation’ insist that the Prime Minister has not gone as far as he could have. To put it more precisely, representatives of the ‘Stolen Generation’ believe that the Prime Minister has failed to uncover the full extent the tragedy of the ‘Stolen Generation’.

Thus, the speech intended to recognize errors of the Australian government in the past and the declaration of the new policy based on equality of all people confronted controversial public and media response.
