AUCKLAND RALLY POSTER: http://indymedia.org.nz/usermedia/application/10/aug30.pdf

End the criminalisation of dissent;
End the colonisation of Ngai Tuhoe;
End the global wars of Terror

12 NOON, SAT, AUGUST 30TH -
PROTEST LAST YEAR’S STATE TERROR RAIDS.
RALLY IN AOTEA SQUARE

This protest is part of an international day of action focusing on the raids which resulted in 17 activists arrested in a dramatic exercise of state power. Two days later the activists will appear in court for a depositions hearing on the charges. The outcome threatens the right to dissent and the civil liberties of all New Zealanders. The police failed in their attempt to lay terror charges against the activists but they are continuing to press arms charges. The nature of the police evidence is such that if their evidence holds up then any breaches would be technical and would normally have resulted in a warning without prosecution. GPJA has called for all the charges to be dropped.

Deposition hearings for the arrestees of the October 15th "anti-terror" raids last year begins on September the 1st. The October 15th Solidarity group in Tamaki-Makaurau are calling for a morning picket to show support and solidarity for the arrestees. We have not forgotten the state surveillance, repression, and imprisonment of Maori sovereignty activists and anarchists. We have not forgotten the racist harassment of the residents of Ruatoki. We have not forgotten the long history of colonisation, violence, and confiscation. Nor have we forgotten the indigenous struggle for self-determination and resistance to the colonial state that continues to this day. Come show your support for Tino Rangatiratanga and Te Mana Motuhake o Tuhoe. Stand in solidarity with the arrestees. Please bring banners, placards and flags. Food will be provided at lunchtime. Ka whawhai tonu matou, ake ake ake!
