    • 27 February 2007

    On 29 November this year, many Australians call to mind the most fondly remembered Address given by Pope John Paul II during his 1986 visit to Australia.

    It has become unpopular to invoke cultural and individual factors to explain the appalling conditions of Australia's Indigenous population.
