Elders call on Apology From Queen March 19, 2006

Posted by campsovereignty in Press Statements.

Despite Aboriginal Elder, Uncle Max Eulo of the Buddgeti Tribe (West NSW), standing in the hot sun for well over three hours to extend a traditional welcome and invitation to the Queen and Prince Phillip and/or visit Camp Sovereignty in King's Domain; he was not afforded this opportunity.

"I felt really bad about that. I was insulted. They were very rude" said Uncle Max today.

Camp Sovereignty today called on the Queen to apologise for the disrespect shown to Aboriginal Elders during her brief stay in Australia.

"It was bad enough that she didn't ackowledge the Traditional Owners in the Baton message but to ignore one of our Elders like that was extremely disrespectful" said Camp Sovereignty.
