Reconciliation    COMMISSION CALLS FOR 'FRUITS OF SYMBOLIC ACTION' ON RECONCILIATION
The Australian Catholic Social Welfare Commission has congratulated the Council for Aboriginal Reconciliation on Sunday's successful reconciliation walk across Sydney Harbour Bridge.
   Fr John Usher, Chairman of the Australian Catholic Social Welfare Commission said, "Symbols of reconciliation such as the walk are crucial in raising the nation's awareness but equally important is the need to see the fruits of this symbolic action."
   He spelled out the 'appalling levels of disadvantage and inequity evident in the health, housing, education, unemployment and incarceration statistics for Indigenous Australians' as evidence that there are 'still many bridges that need to be crossed' before reconciliation is fully effected.
