EMILY: Hi I am Emily and today we are going to be interviewing Miss Tye. Today’s topic is Investigate the different types of migrants who arrived in Australia after World War II, in the 1970’s and recently. During this interview I will be asking her questions that we will know present to you. Hope you enjoy.
EMILY: Why did the British say Australia was theirs?
RUBY: Well the British immigrants where proud of Captain James cook who crowned Australia with the British flag. But Australia is made up of a lot of different countries. When Captain James Cook found Australia he stabbed the British flag in to the ground as you know and the British thought a flag can make a country theirs.
EMILY: Who will stay in their country and why?
RUBY: Most people in other counties could not afford to come to Australia but they did with a suitcase and $1. They made Australia their home by working hard and making money to stay here. But some people tried to get to Australia but the people wouldn’t let them get through. They didn’t expect them because people where, Sick, Death, Weak or poor
EMILY: Why did people from Greece and Italy leave their country?
RUBY: People from Greece and Italy both had country’s what were suitable to live in but they wanted to give their family a better life and plenty to eat. They didn’t know what to expect but they stayed on the boat and came to Australia. The Greek civil war was happening in Greece from 1946 to 49. And in Italy they was world war 2 ,till 1940 to 1945
EMILY: How would everyone feel if the British took over Australia today?
- RUBY: Australia is a multicultural country and many religious and cultural practices are enjoyed by everyone.
- RUBY: ‘If the British took over Australia today it would be very hard for them because we have a lot of culturally different people in Australia now and we have out lawed the white Australia policy.’ But some people still believe in the white Australian Policy. I still believe that everyone in Australia is who they are and having different people in owe country is a culturally different learning experience.
- The White Australia Policywas the name given to a number of laws that stopped non-Europeans from coming to live in Australia. These laws started in 1901, and were undone from the 1950s to 1970s.
EMILY: Where else/could migrants have gone in the world
RUBY: Australia’s migration population is relatively large when compared with other Western nations. This means that not only more people are coming to Australia more than any other country, but it also means that people are deciding to come to us more than any other country But it really depends where they want to go to. These are some country’s that came to Australia: United Kngdom, New Zealand, Chaina, India, Philiphines, Vietnamese, Hong Kong, Greece, Germany, Poland, South Africa and Italy.
EMILY: Why might they have chosen Australia instead?
RUBY: Australia is a free country and you always have a chance to have your say (By voting). Unlike some other countries. Also there is no war or conflict. I believe there is no war of conflict over here because Australia is a free country and people move over here to escape them.
EMILY: What might happen in a country if most people left their country and came to Australia?
RUBY: Well if most people left their country to come to Australia it would mean there would be fewer people in that country and more in Australia. That would affect the country’s that people came from because they wouldn’t have the same amount of people as they had before.
EMILY: Which part of Africa did most people leave from?
RUBY:Europe and Asia is traditionally the largest sources of migration to Australia. In 2005-2006, permanent settlers arrivals to Australia it included approximately 3,800 Sudanese and 4,000 South Africans. The majority 72.6% of African emigrants to Australia are Southern and Eastern Africa.
EMILY: Why did they leave Africa?
Egypt: Family Heritage with Europeans, Freedom and Yom Kuppur war, Libyan-Egyptian War.
South Africa: South African Border war and Soweto Uprising War
Eriteria: Ethio Somali War
Sudan: a Drought and Famine , caused by lack of rain, and first Sudan civil war
South Sudan: Drought, Famine, South Sudan civil war and damage from South Sudan’s civil war
