This little snippet on Indymedia caught my eye.
It was posted by Scott Hamilton and advertises a party to be held in Auckland on Saturday to raise funds for the campaign against the Suppression of Terrorism Act.
Next Saturday’s speakers will include Justin Taua, a long-time activist in the National Distribution Union and Maori rights movement. Justin, whose whakapapa includes many members of the Parihaka movement, has often been a critic of police treatment of Maori. He was heavily involved in the fight for justice for Stephen Wallace, the young man shot in the back by a Taranaki cop in 2000…
David Bedggood and Scott himself will also be performing.
A few points here;
Justin Taua is also about 12.5% of the Communist Workers Group. He is also connected to the Kahui family-who’s twin baby boys were brutally murdered some time ago. Their father, Chris Kahui is currently out on bail awaiting trial for their murder. Justin Taua wrote a piece, blaming capitalism for the twin’s killing.
Stephen Wallace, to the best of my knowledge, was shot while ADVANCING on a policeman, while swinging a golf club.
What’s the saying-“he is so respectful of the truth, he uses it only sparingly“.
