On October 15th 2007, activists around New Zealand woke to guns in their faces.

Black-clad police smashed down doors, dragging families out onto roads and detaining some without food or water.

In the village of Ruatoki, helicopters hovered while locals were stopped at roadblocks.

Operation 8 involved 18 months of invasive surveillance of Maori sovereignty and peace activists accused of attending terrorist training camps in the Urewera ranges – homeland of the Tuhoe people.

Operation 8 asks why and how the raids took place.

How did the ‘War on Terror’ become a global witch-hunt of political dissenters reaching even to the South Pacific?
