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 The Legal Fudging Of The GCSB Revelations

As many have noted, the Hager/Snowden revelations of the spying by our security agencies on our Pacific neighbours and allies is a virtual re-run of the pre-election debate.

Unfortunately, it is also a forerunner of the kind of “ debate” we can expect during the upcoming review of the security agency powers, in June. It is a situation where the government (a) stonewalls, (b) baldly asserts that mass surveillance is not occurring despite the Snowden evidence that it is, and (c) claims that the GCSB actions were lawful.

Yet as Greens Co-Leader Russel Norman says, this can be true only if the legislation passed last year by the Key government has made the mass surveillance of New Zealanders – and the related handing over of their private data to the NSA – lawful. More>>
