Tina Fraser, a university lecturer from British Columbia, was visiting her home town of Ruatoki the day police swarmed the small town.
Fraser told Pacific Radio News police were certainly aggressive and intimidating. (listen)
Fraser, who teaches at the Prince George University, says she's devastated also by the Government's decision to promote an Anti-Terrorist Bill, which she says is so American. (listen)
She told us she doesn't believe the police theory that military stye camps have been operating in the Uruwera and that Tuhoe activist Tame Iti is involved.
