Metrowater Claim "Trespass" On Sewer

Metrowater Ltd is seeking an injunction against a Water Pressure Group member, claiming that the wastewater bills boycotter is trespassing on the Auckland City sewer system, now owned by the company.

As well, last week Metrowater tried to use the process of "discovery" to seize all email records relating to the Water Pressure Group messages and information. This was denied them on the basis that the Water Pressure Group is not an incorporated society. The owner of the computer holding the emails said that he would not be yielding the information - "OVER MY DEAD MAIN-FRAME!!"

The case will be heard in the HIGH COURT - AUCKLAND CNR PRINCES STREET AND ANZAC AVE at 9.00AM on MONDAY 4 DECEMBER

Please bring your solidarity to protest against this attempt to single out individuals from a major campaign of civil disobedience.

AN INJURY TO ONE IS AN INJURY TO ALL!!

Enquiries to

Jim Gladwin jimg@pl.net (preferably) or Ph 09 828 4517

or to Water Pressure Group media spokeswoman Penny Bright Ph 09 846 9825
