ABORIGINAL children were injected with leprosy treatments in a medical testing program that used members of the Stolen Generation as guinea pigs, a Senate Committee has heard.
Greens Senator Bob Brown said he was “shocked and alarmed” by the claims, heard today by the Senate legal and constitutional committee’s inquiry into a Stolen Generation Compensation Bill 2008.
On the first day of hearings in Darwin today, Kathleen Mills from the Stolen Generations Alliance said the public did not know the full extent of what happened to some children.
And efforts to obtain records that support the claims, such as that children were injected with serums to gauge their reaction to the medication, had been hampered, she said.
“These are the things that have not been spoken about,” Ms Mills told the inquiry.
“As well as being taken away, they were used … there are a lot of things that Australia does not know about.”
Outside the inquiry, Ms Mills said her uncle had been a medical orderly at the Kahlin Compound in Darwin.
She said he told her that children were used as “guinea pigs” for leprosy treatments.
“He said it made our people very, very ill … the treatment almost killed them,” she said.
“It was a common experience and a common practice … People are very inhibited to speak about their experience and it is not a nice subject … I don’t want them to be shamed.”
Senator Brown said it was important to get to the bottom of the claims, which he called “very, very serious”.
“It may be right, it may not,” he said.
“It needs investigation. If within the indigenous community there is a feeling that children may have been experimented upon for a treatment for leprosy or anything else, the air needs to be cleared.”
Ms Mills said information to do with the testing would be in health department archives and she called on the Government to assist “opening Pandora’s box”.
She also said it was important to work with indigenous groups to ascertain who is eligible for compensation.
“It has to happen … but there’s this reluctance to do it,” she said.
“We don’t have the necessary information … it’s probably tucked away in some archive but we don’t have the resources to research, we don’t have the people who are qualified.”
The compensation Bill aims to pay money to victims of the stolen generations, including living descendants, out of a Stolen Generations Fund.
Ex gratia payments would be set at $20,000 as a common experience payment with an additional $3,000 for each year of institutionalisation.
Rodney Dillon, from the National Sorry Day Committee, said that while the Government debated action, Aboriginal elders entitled to compensation were dying.
“We are going to lose a lot of people between now and the next time this Bill is put on the table,” he said”
THIS IS TO REMIND US THAT THE ONLY WAY TO BE FULLY PROTECTED FROM MADNESS LIKE WHAT YOU JUST READ IS FOR THE ABORIGINAL PEOPLE AROUND THE EARTH MUST BE SEPARATED FROM THE ANGLO.THEY (THE WHITE/EUROPEAN) MUST GO BACK TO EUROPE AND LEAVE ALL LAND STOLEN FROM THE ORIGINAL PEOPLE AND COLONIZED BY NON-ORIGINALS OR ELSE SUFFER MORE OF WHAT IS NOW BRINGING THIS WORLD TO ITS KNEES;”Our Saviour Has Arrived
Old World Going Out;
New World Come In
1 the Old World of mischiefmaking and bloodshed is now on its way out in order to make room for the new world of Righteousness and Peace.
2 For the past 6,000 years we have had to live in an evil world that was designed to destroy the peace of man and to shed his blood.
3 All around the earth, there has not been one section of the world in which the Original Man has been or where he now lives that has not been touched or ruled by the evil of gods of the old world.
4 The God of Righteousness and peace, today, has Made His Appearance to Take to Himself the Rule of the Nations under the government of Peace, Freedom, Justice, and Equality.
5 Allah (God) Seeks to separate the evil from the good and the good from the evil. He Declared Himself as Coming to Seek and to Save the Black Man (so-called Negro) from his kidnappers (the white race).
6 Allah (God) Came to unite and Restore the Black Man again to his Own and Bless Him with the rule of the Nations of earth, as declared by the prophets, Abraham, Moses, and Jesus.
Fall of Ancient Babylon
7 In the Fall of Ancient Babylon Jer. 50:46, “At the noise of the taking of Babylon the earth is moved, and the cry is heard among the nations.” here the Bible teaches us and we see today, at the fall of the old world, there is a great noise of war, the fighting of war, the destruction of nations, towns, and cities and the killing of their citizens. There is disagreement and confusion of the heads of nations.
8 It is a very dreadful time that the populations of the earth are now living in. This is the time of the destruction of a world. It is not to be compared with the destruction of an organization or a few towns as it was in the days of Noah. The destruction today is the destruction of a whole world. The prophets could not have given us a better picture of what we may expect today than the picture of what took place in the fall of ancient Babylon.
9 The Earth, land, and sea are set in battle array. Every type of deadly weapon is fashioned and is now being used against man and man. See Holy Qur’an Chap. 30:41. There cannot be any peace for man under these conditions.
