People in Aotearoa Stand Up for Aboriginal Political Prisoner

in

In Wellington yesterday: about twenty protesters braved gale force winds and rain to gather outside the Australian High Commission in Wellington today to demand the immediate release of Palm Island Aboriginal councilor, Lex Wotton. The accused man is facing a life sentence for 'rioting with destruction' following the announcement of the brutal killing of an Aboriginal man in police custody in 2004 [More]

In Auckland a demonstration to free Lex Wotton will be taking place next Friday November 7th. Meet at 5pm outside Downtown Shopping Centre (next to Britomart) to march to the Australian Consulate on Quay Street. [More]

First they come with the missionary, then the guns and whiskey, and then the Governor with the soldiers.

As a specie we seem to be insane.
