National Sorry Day Speech

Ms SANDELL (Melbourne) (By leave) — I too rise to acknowledge and celebrate the generations of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who have lived on this land and continue to live on this land as custodians of this remarkable country, and who now share their traditional knowledge and ancient culture with the people who have come from all over the world to live in Australia. I rise to acknowledge that the sovereignty of this land was never ceded and that we still have much to do to right the wrongs that were done to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and to work towards justice. I rise today, on National Sorry Day, to say on behalf of the Victorian Greens: we are sorry. I am sorry. We acknowledge the terrible atrocities and injustices done to Aboriginal people by our forefathers and acknowledge that many injustices continue to be perpetrated today.

However, the government has indicated that it will only introduce a VRET if the federal government removes section 7C from the commonwealth's renewable energy target legislation.
