Apartheid Australia violating human rights
In 1901 one of Australia’s first acts as a nation was to introduce the so-called White Australia policy to exclude non-Europeans from Australia, this including forced repatriation of Melanesian slaves and their progeny and complete cessation of centuries old family and commercial links between Indigenous Australians and Indonesia. This racist policy was abolished in 1974 but now race-based laws and regulations have returned Australia to being an Apartheid state. There is now a New White Australia Policy.
