I'm doing a research on the colonisation of Australia. My argument is that there was a genocide here against the aboriginal people and to fit in the genocide convention 1948 I have to provide evidence of the 'intent'to commit genocide. So one of the ways I want to do it is, firstly, to prove that the British Crown knew that the land was inhabited. Secondly, that the British had been already dealing with smallpox in North America. Thirdly, that the British did not steal children from the northamerican indians.
