Greens support Uni’s decision over ‘invasion’

Friday, 1 April

Aboriginal Affairs Minister Peter Collier continues to fail Aboriginal people by denying the truth of Australia’s settlement, according to WA Greens Aboriginal Affairs spokesperson Robin Chapple MLC.

“History is clear, however uncomfortable that may be, and we need to acknowledge it honestly and exactly as it happened,” Mr Chapple said.

“Mr Collier should be encouraging Curtin and Murdoch University for taking the initiative to educate young people correctly, as both Education and Aboriginal Affairs Minister.

“Quite contrary to his statement, the Minister’s attitude is unnecessarily inflammatory as is the long-held and wildly incorrect view that Australia was peacefully settled.”
