    Aotearoa - Search and Surveillance - Stop The Bill Now

    The Search and Surveillance Bill, currently being debated by Parliament, is
    a massive threat to civil liberties in New Zealand. It grants the Police and most
    other state agencies vast new powers to monitor, search and detain
    individuals for minor and non-existent infringements.

    The Bill effectively removes the right to silence by allowing the Police to
    force people to answer questions and produce evidence using provisions known
    as examination orders and production orders. It also allows for warrant less
    searches in some circumstances and for video surveillance devices to be
    installed in private homes, using only the same burden of evidence currently
    required by the courts for granting Police a warrant for a one off search.

    Saturday 24 April is a national day of protest action against the Bill. Defend your freedom: Join the protest!
