- Australian Citizens
The Rudd Government seems determined to apologize on behalf of the Australian people for acts which said people took no part in, primarily the Aboriginal Stolen Generation controversy.
Many Australians are descended from those who immigrated to Australia in the years following 1960, and so can be seen to bear no blame whatsoever. An additional concern is that an apology would also count as an admission of guilt, opening the door to litigation.
As a result, we feel an apology from Rudd, our representative, would be inappropriate. If nothing else this petition represents those wishing to remove themselves from any apology given by Rudd, without consideration for his constituents.
We, the undersigned, call on the Australian Federal government to cancel plans for an apology.
