GCSB vs Three Kiwi Heroes

Media Release: Urgent – 10 am protest outside Appeal Court Wellington

GCSB vs Three Kiwi Heroes

Waihopai heroes give up their shirts and….

Three brave kiwis, Adi Leeson, Sam Land and Peter Murnane appear in the Court of Appeal in Wellington this morning seeking to overturn a High Court decision allowing the GCSB to pursue a civil claim for $1.2 million for damage done to the Waihopai spybase when they deflated one of the domes in an anti-war protest in 2008. 

This trio were found not guilty of wilful damage by a jury in 2010 but the GCSB are taking them to court for damage to the dome and to pay for pies and drinks for the workers who re-erected a new dome.

The trio will take part in a protest outside the court of Appeal this morning at 10am with a protest following at the steps of parliament where the poverty-stricken trio will offer the government the shirts off their backs and…. They will be met at parliament by Mana MP Hone Harawira.

This protest deserves public debate since the government is this week to introduce into parliament legislation to make legal what the GCSB has been doing illegally for 10 years now – spying on New Zealanders.
