Australian Aboriginal Genocide

The first attempt at genocide lasted for more than 100 years.

Dr. Gideon Polya, a scientist, artist, writer and pro-peace advocate, wrote that roughly 123 years after the arrival of the British, the Black “Indigenous Aboriginal population dropped from about 1 million to 0.1 million in the first century after invasion in 1788.” By 1911, 90 percent of the population had been wiped out.

Aboriginal Massacre

The Aborigines did not die of disease.

To this day, Australian children are taught that no wars or acts of mass violence occurred on Australian soil. However, this notion is hardly the truth. Due to propaganda inspired by the Australian government, media and education system, most of the population has failed to acknowledge the horrendous acts that were inflicted upon the Black Aboriginal population of the region. While many Australian citizens will tell you that Aboriginal individuals died of disease, the indigenous Black people of the continent, for the most part, were murdered. Polya declares that “Australia has always been a deeply racist country and continues to be involved in genocidal atrocities.”
