Australia Day, Invasion Day or Possession Day?
Some people even refer to the 26th of January as Invasion Day, marking the arrival of the convicts from the First Fleet.
Let's not worry about the 'other' 26th day of January the one of 1808, which was the one of the Rum Rebellion.
The 26th of January may not be that important as people make it out to be, where another action occurred approx 8 years earlier where no spot light has be put on it.
"The history of New South Wales as a British possession commenced on 28th April 1770, when Captain Cook accompanied by Joseph Banks and Dr. Solander, landed at Kurnell on the southern shore of Botany Bay, and took possession of the country in the name of King George the Third"
as seen in screen capture below from the book;
New South Wales the Mother State of Australia, which was issued by "THE INTELLIGENCE DEPARTMENT" by authority of the government of the state of New South Wales.
SO how did this taking "possession" occur?
1). Was there any bartering with the people of many 'nations' who already were living on the land?
2). Was there the "meeting of the minds" for an agreement of some sort?
3). Was it just plain and simply taken or in criminal law, stolen?
Now that would not be very honourable if it was stolen would it?
We asked the Australian people's most popular read news site the Rupert Murdoch's Herald Sun publication to comment on this in an email but no response was given, see screen capture of email sent to Herald Sun
The above mentioned book is available for download (478p, 60MB);
Let's wait and see if the mainstream media will write on this subject on the 28th of April.
