BTN: Intervention Anniversary

This video was about Indigenous kids not being treated well and people declared an emergency about that.

 

A emergency can be declared when theres a natural disaster, an attack, etc. In 2007 an emergency was declared for a different reason, it was beacuse alot of indigenous kids were treated poorly so people declared an emergency about that. The Prime Minister at the time immediately sent the military and heaps more police to fix the problems such as alcohol, violence, unemployment, poor health and poor education.

 

Something I learnt was that you can declare a emergency I didn’t know you could do that.

 

A question I have is, why do they have to treat the kids bad why can’t they treat them like normal kids? And why would the goverment take their money if they dont go to school what if they can’t offord it?
