Brown-Davis also claims to be an indigenous anarchist
Brown-Davis has run a very active Blog Whenua, Fenua, Enua, Vanua since March 2007, which focuses on indigenous revolution, mainly, but not exclusively in the Asia/Pacific and the Americas.
Brown-Davis has links to several interrelated activist strands-radical Aboriginal groups, US and Canadian Indian organisations, New Zealand Maori radical and anarchist networks, Latin American indigenous movements, including possibly Mexico’s Zapatistas plus the “traditional” Marxist-Leninist and Trotskyist movements.
She is a true revolutionary networker.
Brown-Davis organised the recent demonstration in front of the New Zealand consulate in Melbourne to oppose the New Zealand anti-“terrorist“.
Brown-Davis told Melbourne media;
“This is a full-on criminalization of dissent and a deplorable and disgusting attack on peace activists. The activists have a heart-felt concern for social justice, but the government uses it as an excuse to arm themselves.”
Earlier this year Brown-Davis was herself in court with, three comrades, on charges relating to protests at the 2006 G20 Summit in Melbourne;

Brown-Davis was one of four New Zealanders to address the recent Latin American & Asia Pacific International Solidarity Forum held in Melbourne.
The forum was organised by several Australian Marxist-Leninist Parties, including , the Communist Party of Australia and the International It brought together several hundred communists, Trotskyists, Maoists, anarchists and radicals from the Asia/Pacific and Latin America.
Sina Brown-Davis was originally scheduled to address a session entitled “The Global Influence of the Zapatistas“, but ended up addressing anther, entitled “Neo Colonialism in the Pacific“.
The other three advertised panelists on the Zapatista session were Estela Morales (Radio New-generation The Other Campaign-a front for the Zapatistas, Mexico), Eduardo Yssa (National Coalition for the Defense of Water & Life, Bolivia)and Dave Kerin (Union Solidarity Australia).
The fact that Brown-Davis was apparently considered enough of an authority on the Zapatistas to address such a forum, says much about her knowledge of the Mexican revolutionaries.
