by Green, Kate | Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 2005Description: 12 p. PDF.Other title: Sambell Oration 2005.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: Delivered at the Australian Child Poverty Conference, 7 December 2005.Summary: I am delighted and honoured to be invited to give the Sambell Oration to the conference this morning, and to have the opportunity to meet Australian colleagues who are engaged in the same effort as Child Poverty Action Group to bring an end to child poverty in two of the world’s wealthiest countries. This is my first visit to Australia, and I’m particularly pleased that it should be to Melbourne, which in the few days I have spent here I have found beautiful, welcoming, it is a pleasure to be here. And I am also especially pleased to be asked to give this oration now, not just because I seem to have arrived at a time of political controversy, with your Treasurer Mr Costello expounding some startling new ideas about welfare reform pretty well as I stepped off my plane, but also because this year, 2005, marks CPAG’s 40th birthday (I know—we don’t look a day over 25!), and you know how these big birthdays make you stop and take stock. So the end of our big 40th year seems an especially fitting moment to reflect on the effectiveness of our anti-poverty work and to suggest some pointers for the future, and to share and compare with you in your rather different political environment as I look back over 40 years of activism back home.
