Stolen Children – high noon at DoCS

Video of rally and march in Brisbane (Wednesday 2 May). People describe how their children were taken away by authorities — removing Aboriginal children from their families and their culture.

This is part of a story that needs to be told by the people affected, the mothers, fathers, children, aunties, uncles and elders. Questions include: What are the ‘child placement principles’ under the Qld Protection Act 1999? Why were federally funded Aboriginal Child care agencies disbanded by the state government? Why did the state government go against their own recommendations over child safety?
