Australia | John Pilger on Aborigine Assimilation by Abduction in Australia | TruthOut

According to a report filed by John Pilger on Truthout, Aborigine child abductions number roughly 14,000 in 2013 alone. It’s not family members who are taking these children; it’s the Australian government. Under a government program designed to rescue children from disease and poverty, infants and small children are sometimes forcibly taken from their parents and relatives and put up for adoption. As Pilger says in this “Truthout Interviews” podcast, the program has a kind of Catch-22 built into it.
