IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT! URL CHANGE!

Apologies for the hassle, but due to problems with Tumblr we’ve had to change the site over to Google Sites, at THIS URL: https://sites.google.com/site/concernedcitizensexhibition/

www.concernedcitizens.co.nz will now redirect to the new site.

If everyone who is currently following this Tumblr could change over to the RSS feed on the new site that would be excellent.

Thank you very much!

A Fundraising Exhibition to Help the Victims of the
October 15th “Anti Terrorism” Raids


When: One weekend only! 3rd – 5th June, 2011

Opening night: 4:30pm, Friday June 3rd , followed by screening of “Operation 8: Deep in the Forest” at 8pm, followed by lively discussion.

Viewing: Saturday 4th, Sunday 5th  11am – 8pm 

Where: Garrett Street (opposite Glover Park, above People’s Coffee)

WhyThere are very many talented people around us who make amazing art. At the same time, 18 people in New Zealand are currently being bankrupted by the cost of fighting questionable charges following the ‘Operation 8’ raids conducted around the country on October 15th, 2007. To address these concerns, more than 30 artists from around New Zealand are exhibiting their work in the hope of raising funds (and awareness) to support the victims of the raids and their families. 

Many people in the community have questions about this case, and whether justice is being done. We want them to get together, experience some excellent art, and talk about what’s going on.

"“The whole saga since the arrests has been to me one of the most blatant abuses of what are supposed to be the pillars of the western justice system.”
- Moana Jackson"

If a Government passes a Terrorism Suppression Act,
 as happened in New Zealand in 2002, and creates the mechanisms to police it, then there must be terrorists to suppress, right? Errol Wright and Abi King-Jones’ potent Operation 8 examines the Rambo-like ‘anti-terror’ raids of October 2007, illuminating how and why they took place – and at what continuing cost to civilised life in Aotearoa New Zealand.
