It is my contention that the 17 “terrorists” arrested last Monday are part of two, possibly three, major interrelated international networks.
I believe that NZ Maori radicals have links with indigenous revolutionary and activist networks worldwide, particularly in the US, Canada, the Philippines, the Pacific and Latin America.
I believe this network is allied to the international anarchist movement, which seems to be strongest in Europe, the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Latin America.
I believe both the radical indigenous and anarchist networks are united by their admiration for the Mexican Zapatista revolutionaries and their supporters in Bolivia and other Latin American countries.
Further, I believe that both the anarchist and indigenous strands have significant links to both mainsteam Marxism-Leninist parties and the Trotksyist movement.
My next post will look at a prominent “terrorist 17” support activist with links to all camps.
