The Green Party lets Urewera arrestee Val Morse launch her new book at their Christchurch HQ.
Why do are Greens so supportive of “peace activists” facing firearms charges?
Valerie Morse, author, activist, and one of the “Urewera 16” arrestees is soon to be in Christchurch to launch her book Against Freedom: The War on Terrorism in Everyday New Zealand Life. She will speak about the “War On Terror” and her experiences during the raids and in prison.
Friday 18th, 7:30 @ The Green Room, 16 Bedford Row
Against Freedom: The war on terrorism in everyday NZ life
This book details the agenda against freedom, from the legislative changes since 9/11to the suppression of dissent and the media manipulation of public understanding, in order to provide an alternative view of what is happening and what can be done to stop the war.
Also available at the launch will be Can’t Hear Me Scream, a 14 page zine written by Valerie while she was in prison, detailing life in prison, the bureacracy and arbitrary exercise of power, and how those on the outside can support those trapped within.
The book launch is presented by Katipo Books, who will have a large selection of other radical books and zines for sale at the event.
