9am, Monday, Feb 13: Protest: Drop the Charges! Auckland High Court, Cnr Waterloo Quadrant & Parliament Streets, Auckland.

February 12, 2012

This marks the start of the trial of the remaining four defendants from the police bungled attempt

to charge 17 political activists with offences under our freshly-minted terrorism laws.

That attempt failed with the terrorism charges abandoned

and minor Arms Act charges being reduced and then withdrawn for most defendants.

However four and half years on from the dramatic October 15th 2007 raids

https://www.indymedia.org.nz/sites/default/files/usermedia/image/5/large/stormstroopers.jpg

the police are making a final attempt to get some convictions

by trying to prove these four defendants were members of a “criminal gang.”

This protest will call for these charges to be dropped

in a case based more on silencing political dissent

than any half-way credible terrorism threat.

Be there to give your support.

7.30pm, Tuesday, Feb 14: Special GPJA Forum: Drop the charges! (see above), Trades Hall, 147 Great North Road, Grey Lynn

This special GPJA forum will have speakers talking about the raids, their political context and the legal situation of the defendants.
