Redfern Park speech


In this speech launching the United Nations International Year for the World’s Indigenous People, delivered in Redfern on 10 December 1992, the Australian Prime Minister argues that reconciliation with Australia’s Indigenous people must begin with recognition of the act of dispossession by non Aboriginal Australians. If we can build a prosperous and remarkably harmonious multicultural society in Australia, surely we can find just solutions to the problems which beset the first Australians, the people to whom the most injustice has been done.
