Invasion Day, commonly known as Australia Day in this country is a time for mourning, a time for struggle. On this show we will be looking at the intergenerational trauma created by a system and a culture which will not recognise sovereignty, that is rather intent on genocide. In this episode we hear from Lidia Thorpe representing Grandmothers Against Removal in Victoria. Lidia speaks to us about forced removals which see Aboriginal children removed from their families, community and culture. We will discuss the power of GMAR's, the devestation these removals cause to families and communities, and the relationship between colonisation, the celebration of invasion and forced removals.
More information about volunteering with GMAR will be available shortly. For now you can connect with them through the Facebook page.
