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.
