“Concerned Citizens" exhibition

“Concerned Citizens" exhibition

Controversial “dole artist” Tao Wells, local provocateur Arlo Edwards, and
several other artists will join forces to raise funds and public
awarenessfor arrestees in the 2007 October 15 “Terror Raids” this
weekend.

The exhibition, titled *Concerned Citizens*, will open with karakia from
arrestee Moana Winitana at *Garrett Street exhibition space *on *Friday June
3rd at 4:30pm.* The opening will be followed by a screening of Errol Wright
and Abi King-Jones’ documentary, “Operation 8: Deep in the Forest”.

*Concerned Citizens* is a public response to the 2007 arrests, and the
subsequent handling of the legal case against arrestees. “The police seem to
be equating legitimate political and environmental activism with terrorism,"
says artist and organizer Lance Ravenswood, “why have these people been
denied a trial by jury? Why is there so much secrecy surrounding the legal
proceedings?” Prominent figures, including civil rights lawyer Moana Jackson
and Professor Jane Kelsey have also spoken out against the handling of the
case.

Exhibited works will range from paintings, sculptures and animation to a
reproduction of a device police claim arrestees planned to use - a catapult
designed to launch a bus onto the head of former US president George Bush.
