* Christchurch

~ Every Friday until Christmas - Vigil in Solidarity with the Tuhoe people: "each week, the vigil will feature a speaker to talk about the issues that have emerged from the raids of the 15 October. On the 15 October 2007, the Tuhoe people of Ruatoki were subject to an unprecedented police raid that targeted all their inhabitants including children and the elderly. These innocent people were subject to abuse, humiliation and terror. The police raids citing the Suppression of Terrorism Act 2002 force us to examine the context in which they occur. One cannot comprehend their implications without looking at the global context of the "war against terrorism". The "war against terrorism" has divided the world into what US President George Bush has described as "those who are for us and those who are against us". In the West, it is a simplistic worldview that has been very effective in marginalizing and labeling 'dissenters' and those engaged in the struggle for self-determination. It has also been effective in creating a climate of fear and suspicion. We ask you respond to this climate by vigiling in a spirit of solidarity with the Tuhoe people who have resisted colonization with great patience and dignity. To vigil means to 'remain awake'. We must remain awake to the political agendas at work in the current climate of the "war against terrorism" and demand an end to the targeting of sisters and brothers who speak truth to power. The vigil will be a peaceful and prayerful presence." From 5pm to 6pm, in Cathedral Square; for more information contact email moanacole.barrister@paradise.net.nz

Wondering about “if only" is one of those political games we all indulge in from time to time.

Yet alarmingly, people keep on having these bad dreams about Donald Trump being the President... More>>
