Brothers and Sisters, we can not go quietly into the night of a mass surveillance state. This is our last chance to show our unified disgust at this Government’s GCSB and TICS Bill and we must stand together to send a clear message to John Key who tells everyone who will listen that we are ‘misinformed’ on these issues.
If you can’t make it in person, The Daily Blog will be streaming the whole event live for free here on site from 7pm and we will provide the entire meeting on demand after the event for free, because that’s how we roll.
This is our Democracy at stake.
On the night we will keep the doors open until we reach capacity, so come early to guarantee a seat and bring friends.
Here are the confirmed speakers for the night…
Dr Rodney Harrison QC (presented the Law Society submission on GCSB Bill)
Kim Dotcom (the most high profile victim of illegal GCSB spying)
Jon Stephenson (journalist and war correspondent)
Seeby Woodhouse (Founder of Orcon ISP and 2004 NZ Young Entrepreneur of the Year)
Helen Kelly (CTU President)
Professor Jane Kelsey (Law Faculty Auckland University)
Marama Davidson (Maori activist and blogger)
Russel Norman (Green Party Leader)
Hone Harawira (Mana Party Leader)
UPDATE: Winston Peters is now joining us to speak against the GCSB
The Town Hall is supposed to be our public square for democratic debate, join us and help make it that once again.
Extra speakers announced on Friday.
