<nettime> Satirical web game on Stolen Generations


John Herron (the ex Australian Federal Government's Aboriginal Affairs
Minister) features in this game that was created by some people to comment
about the situation in Australia with the Stolen Generation and the Government
policy of taking Aboriginal children away from their culture and family so they
can be assimilated in to white culture.

Anyhow the website which featured the game was threatened by the Senator with
legal words - but the creators of the site have put it up somewhere else.

Check out their site at http://www.webwank.net/webwank/herron.htm

See ya, Sam.
