An Australian university has created a stir after asking students to refer to the arrival of British colonists as an "invasion."By Ben Lawson | March 30, 2016
An Australian university is being accused of trying to rewrite history by encouraging students to refer to the arrival of British colonists as an "invasion."
A terminology guide from the University of New South Wales says "Australia was not settled peacefully, it was invaded, occupied and colonised."
It also tells students to use terms like "Indigenous Australian peoples" or "Torres Strait Islander peoples" to describe the groups that were there when the British arrived.
