In the Aftermath of the Urewera Raids: Discussing colonisation, courts and contempt

Public Meeting:

6:30pm, Monday 22nd September 2008

St Johns in the City, cnr Willis and Dixon Sts, Wellington

Moana Jackson (Ngati Kahungunu, Ngati Porou)
Speaking about the context of the raids of October 15th last year

Steven Price (media lawyer, author of www.medialawjournal.co.nz)
Speaking about media law and contempt of court

Followed by question and answer session, then talk over tea, coffee and biscuits.

With the depositions hearing for eighteen of those arrested in the raids last year currently taking place in Auckland, and with Fairfax (the publisher of the Dominion Post) facing trial for contempt of court in Wellington 15th - 19th September, it is a timely opportunity to look at the broader political context. We hope you can join us at the meeting.

All welcome



"I weep for what has just happened at Maungapohatu in Tuhoe. The Police raid seems to be about punishing Kenana for questioning the Crown and will only take us back in the mists of fear and doubt… I wonder if we will ever stop worrying when it might happen again". - Karaitiana Rarere, Ngati Kahungunu, 1916
