(Read 7) This act stated that any Aboriginal child could be removed without parental consent if the board considered it to be in the best interest of the child’s moral or physical welfare. (Read 8) It was up to the parents to show the child had a right to be with them. Many judges did not read or listen to what the parents had to say, they just took the kids. A common reason the colonists used for why the child was being taken was “for being Aboriginal.” British imperialism had such a large effect Aborigines because the amount of change that was being forced on the Aborigines was immense.

The Child Welfare Act 1939 abandoned this policy and gave Indigenous parents the right to take their children back. But the children were moved far away, and even if they were found and returned, many of them were mistreated and didn’t return the same to their families. This had devastating effects on Indigenous parents, and many white Australians didn’t understand this impact at the time. In the 1960s, inspired by the Civil Rights movement in the US, Charles Perkins organized the Freedom Ride of 1965. The tour’s purpose was to study the race relations in Australia, and raise awareness of the lack of equality for Indigenous Australians.
Their enslavement was a form of apartheid while the denial of their rights was part of political and economic disempowerment. This was until they formed their civil rights movement of 1960s (DeSipio Lecture Three 2). The Asian Americans formed the large chunk of their labor but because of immigration issues they were restricted due to xenophobia and culture change. They were also discriminated against because they took over the jobs for the whites. Because they were not permitted to own land, this formed part of political and economic disempowerment.
There was also how each colony raised funds for the government and their projects, this was so that each colony had the right amount of funding, to complete what they needed to without overtaxing the population.

Australia is known as the land of opportunity, where all people are considered equal, and freedom is enjoyed. However, for the Indigenous people of Australia this has not always been the case. In the past, Indigenous and non-Indigenous people have not always shared the same rights. Land, cultural and basic human rights were taken away when the first settlers arrived as Aboriginals were seen as an inferior race (Lindqvist, 2007, p.4). The issue of Indigenous Australians gaining recognition for their rights has been going on for many years.
Located in a distance of about 14109.29 kilometers (distancefromto.net) away from Europe, Australia was thought to be safe from the Euro crisis concerning tourism. Many experts earlier voiced this as a matter-of-fact. However, the cultural impact of the crisis could not be concluded with just the geographical distance. As crisis hit the euro nations, impact on cultural tourism was huge. According to Council of Europe, “Eurobarometer reported fewer travels away from Europe…..Furthermore; figures signal a slight positive tilt towards culture in the motivation of travellers…” As the crisis deepened and the Australian dollar value appreciated against the Euro, the Europeans cut down their budget to travel to Australia, many opting for domestic holiday travel plans, thus decreasing the number of tourist in Australia, affecting the tourism industry.
Through Australia’s incentives to urbanize Aboriginal land, displacement of this native people has led to government conflict, population decrease, and Aboriginal frustration over securing their land. As Australia’s economy advances, the need for more land to urbanize is growing immensely. Some modern Australians would like to obtain as much of the Aboriginal territory as possible and industrialize it. Other modern Australians have tried to argue that people need to “recognize the right of Aborigines to use their own land for their own economic advancement” (“Leader” 1). Many modern Australians contend that creating jobs and opportunity will help the Aborigines, when these modern Australians are truly only trying to help themselves.
The assimilation policy was a policy that existed between the 1940’s and the 1970’s, and replaced that of protectionism. Its purpose was to have all persons of aboriginal blood and mixed blood living like ‘white’ Australians, this established practice of removing Aboriginal children (generally half-bloods) from their homes was to bring them up without their culture, and they were encouraged to forget their aboriginal heritage. Children were placed in institutions where they could be 'trained' to take their place in white society. During the time of assimilation Aboriginal people were to be educated for full citizenship, and have access to public education, housing and services. However, most commonly aboriginal people did not receive equal rights and opportunities, for example, their wages were usually less than that paid to the white workers and they often did not receive recognition for the roles they played in the defence of Australia and their contribution to the cattle industry.
