SATURDAY MARKS FUNDAMENTAL INJUSTICE DAY, EIGHT YEARS ON

 

"When the history of this Parliament, this nation and this century is written, 30 June 1999 will be recorded as a day of fundamental injustice - an injustice which is real, an injustice which is not simply conjured up by the fleeting rhetoric of politicians. It will be recorded as the day when the social compact that has governed this nation for the last 100 years was torn up." Kevin Rudd, Hansard, June 30, 1999
