An Evening With The Spycatchers – Sept 25th

An Evening With The Spycatchers – Sept 25th


AZIZ CHOUDRY & DAVID SMALL

MONDAY SEPTEMBER 25, 7.30 P.M.

WEA

59 Gloucester Street, Christchurch

$10

In 1996 agents of the NZ Security Intelligence Service (SIS) broke into the Christchurch home of political activist, Aziz Choudry. That was a big mistake. They were caught in the act by David Small, who called the Police. They promptly covered up for the spies, and that was their big mistake.

Both Aziz and David sued the Crown, and both were awarded tens of thousands of dollars. The cases were very high profile, drawing extensive national media coverage, and having major political repercussions.

This is not a public meeting or seminar about the SIS or Police spying. It is a chance to meet both Aziz and David in an informal, social setting, and hear them speak about the stories behind their successful campaigns to get justice and compensation as a result of this State surveillance and intimidation.

We will also have the excellent 1999 Australian TV documentary “Big Brother Is Listening”, about the Echelon spy network operated by a global network of satellite interception spybases, including Waihopai, near Blenheim. New Zealand’s Nicky Hager, the world expert on the subject, is featured extensively in this 40 minute programme.

This is a fundraiser for the Anti-Bases Campaign. Money raised will go towards organising the January 2001 protest at the Waihopai spybase.

There will be drinks and nibbles available. You can pay in advance or on the night. If paying in advance, make cheques to ABC, Box 2258, Christchurch and specify that it’s for the fundraiser.
