Zaoui Public Rally on 2nd Anniversary Of Detention

Free Ahmed Zaoui - Public Rally on 2nd Anniversary of his Detention without Trial

Global Peace and Justice Auckland is organising a Public Rally outside Mt Eden Prison on Saturday 4th December at 12noon – the second anniversary of his detention without trial.

The rally will call for his immediate release from Mt Eden Prison so that he start a new life as a genuine refugee in New Zealand along with his wife and family.

There is no precedent in this country for such a lengthy and inhumane detention without charge.

As more and more people get to know Mr Zaoui's story there is outrage that a man of peace and a victim of persecution has been subjected to appalling treatment in New Zealand - including 10 months in solitary confinement.

The Labour government stands condemned for betraying its own principles of fair play, and support for human dignity.

The demonstration will call for Mr Zaoui to be freed immediately – a move which is within the power of the Labour government.

Mount Eden Prison is New Zealand’s own little slice of Guantanamo Bay – right in the heart of Auckland.

It’s time for this shame to end.

Mike Treen – (09) 3616989 or 0212547440 John Minto – (09) 8463173 (Hm) or (09) 2745764 (Wk) Geraldene Peters - (09) 3765994

GPJA also warmly supports the benefit concert organised this Sunday for Ahmed Zaoui's wife and children.

3pm, Sunday 21 November, Kings Arms Auckland
$15 entry
Featuring: Dave Dobbyn, Don McGlashan, Chris Knox, Nesian Mystic, The
Brunettes, One Million Dollars

Gordon Campbell: On The Elusive Charms Of Christopher Luxon


Well, the first 36 hours of viewing the Christopher Luxon selfie were always going to be the best, before the repetitions set in. We get it, already. He’s an extroverted/big ego/high achieving/God fearing/country music lovin’/family man who is not at all averse to mansplaining to little ladies like RNZ’s Kathryn Ryan what “technical” words like “productivity” actually mean. But wait, there’s more. National is back! Mind you, that’s not the Bad National of recent experience, but the Good National of days gone by... More>>
