The Nu Face of Youth Rebellion

by Torrance May 12, 2012

Following the pro-democracy riots in Tonga in 2006, troops from New Zealand and Australia were sent to quell the rebellion and restore Monarchical order. This documentary was filmed in the week after the troops arrived detailing the riots, the pro-democracy movement, the abuse of people by Tongan forces and the operations of the New Zealand and Australian army. The movie stands very much at odds with the mainstream media account of the events. Produced by Smush and Slm of Aotearoa Indymedia.

so good to see reporting from on the ground rather than the filter 'news' and understanding of events we so often get through the mainstream media.
