Candlelight Vigil For Schapelle Corby

Candlelight Vigil For Schapelle Corby

New Zealanders In Solidarity With Schapelle Corby are hosting a
candlelight vigil at Aotea Square, 6.30pm on February 28th, 2013.

The hit free documentary “Expendable” (http://www.expendable.tv) compiles
countless official government documents to prove beyond any shadow of a
doubt that Schapelle Corby is NOT guilty.

Despicably, the powers that be went to great lengths to blind the public
to that fact.

Even despite it emerging that her suitcase (which was discovered 5kg
overweight) was actually underweight when she checked it in, she has so
far served 8 years of an outrageous 20 year sentence, in appalling
conditions in a Balinese jail.

As if that wasn’t enough to topple the balance of resaonable doubt; as
recently as December 2012 an drug-trafficking ring was arrested, for
operating customs-side at Sydney Airport. Corrupt airport employees were
using the baggage of unsuspecting passengers to ferry drugs around
Australasia.

As the “Expendable” documentary spreads around the world, exponential
numbers of people are discovering the truth about what really happened to
Schapelle Corby.

An international day of solidarity will be occurring worldwide. With only
one demand.

Free Schapelle Corby immediately. Let her out now, and the international
events will be cancelled!

Julia Gillard: Act in good faith and give Schapelle back her life. She has
lost so much of it already.

Event also endorsed by: the 14,000-strong Facebook page “People For
Schapelle Corby” & Occupy Auckland, New Zealand.

Gordon Campbell:
On Gaza And Burning The Israeli Flag

One of the selling points in New Zealand’s campaign for a temporary seat on the Security Council is that we have a pluckily independent voice to offer on international conflicts.

This image is not entirely self-delusional. When we did occupy a temporary UN Security Council seat in the 1990s, New Zealand was forthright about the need for the international community to actively respond to the Rwanda genocide. On April 14, 1994, New Zealand, Nigeria and the Czech Republic were the only nations to call for a forceful UN intervention to halt the killings. It was a proud moment in the diplomatic record of the Bolger government.

What then, is the current National government doing with respect to the slaughter in Gaza? More>>
