Organise Aotearoa and the Waikato Left Network will join with director Errol Wright to publicly screen the documentary Operation 8, on 7pm Saturday the 15th of June.

On October 15, 2007, activists around New Zealand woke to guns in their faces. Black-clad police smashed down doors, dragging families out onto roads. In the rural village of Rūātoki, helicopters hovered while locals were stopped at roadblocks.

Operation 8 involved 18 months of invasive surveillance of Māori sovereignty and peace activists accused of attending terrorist training camps in the Urewera ranges – homeland of the Tūhoe people. Operation 8 asks how and why the raids took place. How did the War on Terror become a global witch-hunt of political dissenters reaching even to the South Pacific?

All welcome - koha entry.
