Ordinary Australian People Try To Say Sorry

An excellent idea via Larvatus Prodeo:
Hi there.

You may have heard that Google intends to take high resolution photos of Sydney on Australia Day as part of its Google Earth project. (Google Earth Events: Australia Day 2007)

We think it’s a great opportunity for a bit of activism.

We’ll be chalking up the word “Sorry” in a bunch of places that are clearly visible from Google’s plane. Given our record on Aboriginal human rights, Iraq, Kyoto, East Timor’s Oil, &c. we have plenty to apologise for.
