Not-So-Secret Survival Skills Camp This Weekend

Not-So-Secret Survival Skills Training Camp This Weekend

MEDIA RELEASE
16-10-07

Exercises under the cover of night, tactical response planning sessions and sweeps for bugs and insects are all included on the programme for a not-so-secret Survival Skills Training Camp being held deep in the Kaimai Ranges above Tauranga this weekend.

Organised by a little known group called the South Pacific Christian Anarchists, the event is being promoted on activist websites and in newspaper advertisements across the country.

Publicity material for the event says the camp is for anyone interested in ‘monitoring state suppression of terrorism’, surviving home invasions by agents of the state and ‘how to maintain independent ideas in a free society’.

It is understood a group from the Gisborne region is planning to attend the event and are hoping that they will not be harassed while passing through Taneatua on the way to the event.

Organisers, who plan to wear disguises of clown costumes at the rendezvous point before the event, say their express intention is to ridicule the abuse of power by Police monitoring of communication and raids on fellow activists. The event is also a serious time to show solidarity and share updates on the situation for those ‘arrested, detained or disappeared’, to contribute to a legal defence fund and to train one another in how to survive dawn raids and the abuse of power by government forces.

Syriza Win Greek Election: The Rumblings Of The Left

Binoy Kampmark: The left – and by this, the genuine, progressive, unmanagerial left – is getting noisy. The Greek elections are upon us, with the similar challenges being played out from 2012. There are fears of Grexit – a heavy breathing departure from the eurozone that will do everything to rattle the central currency mechanism that has been taking a battering...

Much of this has been triggered by the moral outrage and political response of the left grouping centred on Syriza of Greece. The movement has been said to have similarities to a new constellation of power in Spain, led by Podemos. Syriza, led by Alexis Tsipras, has promised to renegotiate the terms of Greece’s 240 billion euro international bailout arrangements. Both parties point out to the distance between elector and the elected, a creeping death of democratic accountability in favour of market propriety. More>>

 

Transport: Auckland Looks To Light Rail

The Board of Auckland Transport has called for an investigation into a light rail network, which could relieve traffic congestion on some of the region’s busiest roads. This stems from work in 2012 (the City Centre Future Access study) which responded to a government request to develop a robust and achievable solution for access to the CBD. More>>

Gordon Campbell: On Ian Fletcher Resignation & GCSB’s New Role

It may well be that after being shoulder-tapped in Queensland for the GCSB job, three years of living in Wellington has been enough for Fletcher and his family, given that the pending review of the GCSB would have required an even longer commitment from him. Three years of Wellington’s weather is enough for anyone... More>>
