Here are some facts about the Genocide and the Aboriginal Australians
1. The first genocide lasted for more than 100 years in which the population of the aboriginal Australians was dropped from about 1 million to 0.1 million.
2. Till date Australians teach their children that no wars or acts of mass violence occurred on Australian soil. But in reality the indigenous black people were brutally tortured and murdered.
3. The indigenous black men were used for target practice, women as sex slaves and their babies were roasted. The population of aboriginals in 1804-1832 decreased from 5,000 people to just 200. The population was reduced almost by 90% in 30 years, it was like killing an entire island.
4. In early 1900, the Australians established the first concentration camps under the aborigines Protection Act 1909. As a result of these camps the aboriginals became extinct.
