Excerpt from John Pilger … shocking description of the cruelties the British settlers unleashed on the first peoples of Australian. These shameful histories have been hidden away from public view. Thanks to people like John Pilger they are being exposed.
How to be rid of the ‘Aboriginal problem’ … unashamedly a mining magnate recommends herding them into a specified area & adding sterilization chemicals to their drinking water. That was the then Prime Minister’s friend & not that long ago either. Quite an eye opener.
Drawing on John Pilger’s long association with the first people of his homeland Australia, Utopia (2013) is both an epic portrayal of the oldest continuous human culture, and an investigation into a suppressed colonial past and rapacious present.
