The dawn raids aftermath - looking back

During a draconian time in the 1970s, Pacific Islanders' homes in Auckland, New Zealand, were frequently raided at dawn by police. This AUT media student documentary takes a look back at those times and the emergence of the Polynesian Panthers as a political and social movement.

The documentary is by Kelly Dennett, Serra Galuvao and Nathan Dawson. An earlier Pacific Media Centre profile on the Polynesian Panthers by Katie Small is here.
