“Operation – 8”

.
On 15 October 2007 — following an 18-month undercover police operation — the New Zealand Government carried out a series of dawn raids on the homes of its citizens using armed police wearing masks.

Operation 8″ is a potent, full length documentary film that examines these Rambo-style “anti-terror” raids, illuminating how and why they took place, and at what cost to life in New Zealand.

The film has been accepted into the WORLD CINEMA SHOWCASE 2011 and is scheduled for release in the main centres beginning Sunday, 17 April 2011.  A wider release to cinemas, television and video stores nationwide is expected later in the year.

This writer makes three brief cameo appearances in the film and provides a perspective on the Government’s use of undercover agents against its citizens:
