Tia Taurere is a Greenpeace communications officer. She is also linked to a network of radicals, many of whom are connected to the “Urewera 17.“
Key friends listed include “Urewera 17” arrestees Tame Iti and .
Also named is Annette Sykes (Tame Iti’s lawyer) and her former partner, Maori radical Mike Smith.
Two further activists are listed, both of whom were named in the leaked police affadavit as allegedly being connected to the Urewera “quasi military” training camps.
One is the daughter of well known Taranaki based activist. The other is a former business partner of one of those arrested.
Another “friend” has the same very distinctive Christian name (missing one vowel at the end) as another person named on the police affadavit, but never positively identified.
Interestingly two pakeha anarchists are also listed as “friends“.
The last is none other than Green Party MP, Nandor Tanczos, Rayna Fahey’s former boss.
In January 2006, Nandor Tanczos wrote on a Green Party forum;
If we say ‘well Pakeha have the power now, so tough’ and base our occupation on simple domination, then we have to prepare ourselves for permanent civil unrest and eventually when the demographics change enough, for outright war. I have spoken to people who see this as the future, and it frightens the hell out of me.
When challenged by NZ Truth to tell police what he knew, Tanczos backpedalled, stating it would be a “waste of time“.
Further, Mr Tanczos denied knowing any of those arrested in the October anti terror raids except Tame Iti.
This was despite of being photographed on February 14th 2006 holding a Save Happy Valley banner in the grounds of Parliament with Val Morse, one of the country’s most well known activists and an “Urewera 17” arresteee.
Mr Tanczos clearly knows Tia Taurere well enough to link back to her Bebo page.
Tanczos also links to Tame Iti’s lawyer Annette Sykes and to the wife of an activist named in the police “Urewera 17” affadavit.
Does Mr Tanczos know more than he is letting on, or is this just all unfortunate coincidence?
