Gippsland Massacres

At least 300, thats a handy number for the settlers, I think its more like 300 per massacre, One Question, if you murdered men,women and children would you record it, The way Aussies cling to historical records show just how little they really want to change things. Angus mcmillian has huge monuments around gippsland, yeah lets celebrate murder then claim you care, Actions speak louder than words, Aboriginals want to see the morals you all claim to have, we only see bad stuff, the stuff twiggy forest would do
