Valerie Morse, a well-known Wellington environmental activist and one of the 17 arrested in the police 'anti-terror' raids, previously published a book on the effects of the 'war on terror' just six months prior.

'Against Freedom: The war on terrorism in everyday New Zealand life' was published in June and is a prophetic survey of the raft of anti-terror legislation passed in New Zealand since 2001 and of the dangers posed for activists - especially those involved in anti-war, environmental and Tino Rangatiratanga movements - as well as migrants and refugees. It also covers the rise of State surveillance by the Security Intelligence Service (NZSIS) and the media complicity in its reporting on the 'war on terror' in the Pacific and further abroad.
A prophetic passage from the book reads as such:
"It is clear that political dissent is now more perilous and more treacherous than before September 11th. Given the new counter-terrorism laws, the possibility of being not only labelled a terrorist in the media, but prosecuted as one, is a reality. By casting political dissent as terrorism, the government, its agencies, the media, and other vested interests assault our freedom of expression" (82).
The book is freely available as PDF on the Rebel Press website (www.rebelpress.org.nz), as a hard copy directly from the publisher, or from a number of popular book stores including Unity Books and The Freedom Shop in Wellington.
Valerie Morse had name suppression lifted yesterday but remains detained by the State. Her publisher offers her their unconditional support and solidarity, and demand all charges against the 17 be dropped immediately.

Let me be perfectly clear. The New Zealand Police are some of the worst humans on earth, these scumbags make american cops look like nice guys, if that is possible. many are currently up on rape charges, kidnapping, heroin dealing and running peodophelia prostituion rings, this is all verifiable by searching New Zealand Herald online newspaper. Please raise awareness as to Valeries plight as New Zealand is NOT a democracy, it is a hellhole on earth and the exact opposite of what is advertised, totally toxic to the point it would be evacuated if it were in the USA. The Maori have been treated like threats to civilasation and are under constant police harrassment from birth, and they have had enough. OUR US Gov't is driving this country to civil war, if we don't act here and soon.
