PEACE WITNESS 1- RADIO KIDNAPPERS

VALERIE MORSE, PEACE ACTIVIST AOTEAROA NZ

RECORDED 3 SEPTEMBER 2020

Valerie Morse has been a central fgure in the establishment of nationwide peace-action groups in Aotearoa NZ, in particular, Peace Action Wellington and Auckland Peace Action, for the past two decades.

Morse was the author of Against Freedom: The War on Terrorism in Everyday New Zealand Life (2007) and was the principal writer of Profting from War: New Zealand’s Weapons and Military-Related Industry (2015).

She is perhaps best-known to a wider audience in Aotearoa New Zealand in connection to the Operation Eight case, for which she was never put on trial, and the trial for burning a flag on Anzac Day, for which she was eventually acquitted in the Supreme Court, after appealing her conviction. Trained as a historian, employed as a librarian, and based in the Wairarapa, she speaks here with World BEYOND War’s Liz Remmerswaal on her life as a peace witness.
