From anti-apartheid to Project Waitangi - lecture in Newtown

11 February 2014

Suing Robert Muldoon and doing time: from anti-apartheid to Project Waitangi

A look back at race relations in the 1980s and 1990s is on this Thursday, 13th February as the Labour History Project (formerly the Trade Union History Project) holds this year’s Rona Bailey Memorial Lecture. The title of the talk is: ‘Suing Robert Muldoon and doing time: from anti-apartheid to Project Waitangi’.

In the later 1980s Rona Bailey was actively involved in establishing Project Waitangi, a community organisation which sought to educate Pākehā around the Treaty, in light of the approaching 1990 sesquicentennial of the Treaty's signing. Over a number of years a network of Project Waitangi groups achieved much to educate Pākehā about the history and meanings of the Treaty. This work raised a number of issues in the broader context of progressive politics in this country.

The speaker is Robert Consedine. He has had a long and varied involvement in progressive politics, and for many years now has conducted his own Treaty education consultancy as Waitangi Associates.

All are welcome. Admission is by koha, and refreshments will be served.

Where: NZ Drama School/Toi Whakaari, 11 Hutchison Road, Newtown.
When: Doors open at 5.30pm; lecture starts at 6.00pm.

Gordon Campbell: On Government Arrogance

Right now, National is ramming anti-terrorism measures through Parliament. This legislation will grant the SIS the power to carry out 48 hour bouts of surveillance on anyone without a warrant, and will bestow on government the power to unilaterally revoke anyone’s passports and thus deny them the freedom to travel.

Ludicrously, the public has been given exactly one day to make submissions on these major infringements of their civil liberties. Despite Finlayson’s misleading signals on RNZ that these are only stopgaps until next year’s full review of our security laws, the measures in question will not, in fact, expire until 2018.

Why the insane rush? Good question. More>>
