Launch of Against Freedom

Launch of Against Freedom


Katipo Books would like to announce that they have recently recieved copies of the book; Against Freedom: The War on Terrorism in Everyday New Zealand Life written by Wellington activist Valarie Morse.

From the Description: In 2001, the United States launched the 'war on terrorism' in purported response to the September 11th attacks. With hasty process, the New Zealand government quickly signed up. But what is this war really about? The agenda of the 'war on terrorism' is very different to the propaganda we are being sold by politicians and the mass media. It is an agenda of domination and control over our lives and the extension of state and corporate power.

Against Freedom, written by Valerie Morse a prominent Wellington activist, details the agenda against freedom, from the legislative changes since 9/11 to the suppression of dissent and the media manipulation of public understanding, in order to provide an alternative view of what is happening and what can be done to stop the war.
