Grandmothers rally over high number of Aboriginal children in care

Published: 11 February 2016

This week marks eight years since former prime minister Kevin Rudd said sorry to the Stolen Generations, but for two Martu women from Western Australia's Pilbara region, the national apology has offered little comfort.

Heather Samson and Dawn Oates travelled 4,000 kilometres from their remote desert community of Jigalong to take part in a rally outside Federal Parliament.

The protest, to mark the anniversary of the apology, aims to highlight the high number of Aboriginal children in care.
