Heres a little footage courtesy of Vinnie Eastwood who attended the meeting as a www.guerillamedia.co.nz representative We’re posting it for our international readership and those of our Kiwi readers that were unable to attend last nights meeting at the War Memorial Hall in Mt Albert, Auckland, New Zealand organised by the activist group #Stop the GCSB Bill. Speakers included, anthropologist, author and New Zealander of the year Dame Anne Salmond, Thomas Beagle of www.techliberty.org.nz, Megauploads Kim Dotcom and Dr Rodney Harrison QC. The LF team are currently working on bringing our readers the complete i-Film NZ Services version: and a whole lot more
We here at LF were extremely concerned when we saw that ex judge Ted Thomas had been selected to chair this very important meeting – whoever decided to invite Ted’s participation may well have been just a little naive (or not) as this particular jurists track record is far from honest…..but of course thats just our humble opinion…….an opinion born of hands on experience.
Who knows, maybe we should be giving Ted the benefit of doubt? Perhaps in his old age and retirement he’s had a little time to reflect? Then again ex-Judge, GCSB afficanado and Inspector General of intellegence, Paul Neazor is a few years Teds senior and, of course a very close associate surely he would also have had time to reflect? Teddy Thomas’ haughty arrogant and presence, always masked as dry humour, was certainly still very much apparent at this meeting! We here at LF could just be nut-jobs or as John Minto recently stated; conspiracy theorists that got it right!
A little advice for Mr Kim Dotcom, New Zealand is a duplicitous little shit-hole where its police, senior Judiciary and politicians all sleep in the same bed, so to speak. You Kim should be very careful when establishing exactly who are your genuine allies and who are not, take nothing on face value for fear that they well turn out to be a proverbial Trojan Horse.
