Advocates call for more action on Closing the Gap

As Prime Minister Abbott concludes his second annual Closing the Gap speech, community advocates are demanding he do more than give speeches about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

Researcher Gerry Georgatos says Closing the Gap indicators are misleading, and in reality the divide has widened, and continues to do so.
He warns that unless real change is implemented, by 2020 the gap will have “entrenched catastrophic impacts”.
Australia has the widest divide between its First Peoples and the rest of the population throughout the globe.
