Monday 13 February 2017 marks the 9th Anniversary of Kevin Rudd’s apology to Indigenous Australians.
Oz Kiwi would like to take the opportunity to acknowledge Australia’s First Peoples, an ancient civilisation and culture whose existence exceeds 50,000 years, and on whose land we live, work and play. A country we love and are fighting hard to give long term Kiwis the opportunity to gain Permanent Residency and citizenship for.
Nine years ago Kevin Rudd said sorry, today Oz Kiwi says thank you, thank you for 200 years of hosting an immigrant (multicultural) nation.
