Why are there still pushes to reclassify the settling of Australia as 'conquering'?

People are going to court to get this classification made legal. No one did any conquering. The British just settled in Australia, like the Aboriginals themselves did. Yes, there were a few unfortunate conflicts but Britain never considered themselves at war against Australia, let's not drastically rewrite history.

In almost every colony, the convicts were attacked by Aboriginals. The British armed the convicts so that they could defend themselves. It's not our fault that they used the guns to shoot at Aboriginals rather than the British.

The Aboriginals massacred the European settlers in Apin and the British were furious about it. You would be too. People expect the British to be stoic, emotionless robots but we are humans too. If these cowards want to massacre woman and children then let's see how they go against soldiers. We all know what happened...they didn't do very well against the soldiers at all.

Nobody likes a David vs Goliath story where Goliath completely crushes the Aboriginals. Forget nationalities and skin colour for a minute, their behaviour was reprehensible and needed swift retribution. Some would say that they are just savages and don't know what they are doing, but they knew perfectly well that what they did was wrong.

The Aboriginals were upset that they lost hunting grounds, but murdering people is not the solution. Have a chat with the British and they will explain what they are doing. We are farming this land and will share all the food with you.

Update:

Dildo: If that's what you truly believe, then the ramifications for you will be severe. If the Supreme Court rules British settlement as an invasion, it will amount to you living on occupied land that doesn't belong to you.

Update 2:

Noddy: Ask the rest of Europe if they approved of Britain declaring war on Germany.

    If it was perfectly acceptable for the British to go around 'colonizing'...why did they declare war on Germany for attempting to do exactly the same thing...?..

    The British Empire was a marvelous thing but a German Empire would be an entirely different kettle of fish...

    This is nothing but an ignorant and total conspiricy theory. It's better to keep one's mouth shut and let people think you are a fool but you go ahead and rant confirming that you are.
