My niece Rochelle Rees has uncovered some unsavory practices operated by element of the NZ Police directed at peaceful protest groups.
You can read them either by buying the paper, or by these links to articles from Nicky Hager.
Police anti-terror squad spies on protest groups
Who the police were spying on
The activist who turned police informer
How Gilchrist was found out
The police have some explaining to do. I will be doing a number of other posts on the subject for a while. It is time that the structure and control of the police was examined so that peaceable activist citizens can feel safe.
Update: there is a good SST editorial in the paper, but I can’t find it online. Does anyone have a link?
