quote: 'our prime minister could embrace and forgive the people who killed our beloved sons and fathers, and so he should, but he could not, would not, apologise to the aboriginal people for 200 years of murder and abuse. the battle against the turks, he said in gallipoli, was our history, our tradition. the war against the aboriginals, he had already said at home, had happened long ago. the battle had made us; the war that won the continent was best forgotten.'
