Noth­ing wel­com­ing about in­sen­si­tive sign

Kyabram Free Press - - NEWS -

OVER at Be­nalla, VicRoads has had to re­move three im­pres­sive road­side signs be­cause they were in­ac­cu­rate and racially in­sen­si­tive.

The signs an­nounced ‘Wel­come To Yorta Yorta Coun­try’.

Trou­ble is that the sites where they were erected are in tra­di­tional lands of the Bangerang and Pangerang peo­ple who found them to be of­fen­sive.
