Abbott government proposes culturally one-sided vision for First Peoples

“Indigenous Affairs will be brought into the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet. In effect, Australia will have a prime minister for indigenous affairs as well as a dedicated indigenous affairs minister. We need to achieve more to ensure that children go to schools, adults go to work and the ordinary rule of the land operates in Aboriginal communities.” Tony Abbott, Letter to people of Australia

And how does the ethnocidal spirit contained in PM elect Abbott’s vision sit with the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples?
