Auditorium, National Library of New Zealand Te Puna Mātauranga, 70 Molesworth St, Wellington

50 years on from the formation of Halt All Racist Tours, join prominent New Zealand activists for a discussion on the importance of protest and dissent.

For sixteen years from 1969 to 1985, HART’s campaign against participation in racist South African sport shook and changed our society, taking New Zealand into a new and different national and international consciousness.

Fifty years on from the movement’s foundation, come together for a symposium reflecting on the important place HART holds in New Zealand history. What is the role, limits, and shape of protest and dissent in New Zealand today? What are the current human rights challenges facing New Zealand?

Speakers include Trevor Richards, Sue Bradford, Bob Burgess, Linda Burgess, Morgan Godfery, Moana Jackson, John Minto, Rosslyn Noonan, Dave Wickham, and Simon Wilson.

$10 cash at the door.
