Aust adopts UN Indigenous declaration

From ABC website:

“By Online parliamentary correspondent Emma Rodgers

Indigenous Affairs Minister Jenny Macklin says the Government’s support for the United Nations Declaration of the Rights of the Indigenous Peoples will “reset” the relationship between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians.

The Government has officially adopted the declaration at a ceremony in Parliament House, reversing the decision of the previous Government who voted against it in 2007.”
