Protest against SAS deployment

GPJA is planning a protest outside the SAS army base in Grove Road, Papakura this Saturday at 12 noon.

In previous SAS deployments New Zealand troops handed over “suspects” they captured to the American forces who tortured and often murdered their captives. GPJA called on former Prime Minister Helen Clark to condemn the murder of two Afghanis in US custody when their cases were publicised. Helen Clark turned a blind eye.

And despite the supposed bravery of our SAS troops they didn’t have the courage to insist on Geneva Convention treatment for people they handed over to the US. One SAS soldier is quoted saying “we sort of knew what would happen to the prisoners, Americans being Americans”.
