March to protest anti-terror laws

A protest march has been organised for this coming Saturday against the police use of the so-called anti-terror laws. The theme of the march is -

Never Again! Repeal the Terror Laws!

The march will leave from Aotea Square at 12 noon, Saturday 1st December.

There is widespread community concern in the aftermath of para-military police raids last month which targeted the Tuhoe community of Ruatoki and political activists around New Zealand.

New Zealand does not need anti-terror laws. All the police allegation are already covered by existing New Zealand laws. We want the anti-terror laws repealed and the end of police actions to criminalise political activity.

The march precedes the appearance in court (on Monday 3rd December) of all the 17 arrested in the para-military police raids last month.
