PEACEFUL PROTEST: Members of Ngati Whatua atop Bastion Pt with the flagstaff that represents the occupation of Orakei and the struggle for Maori land rights.    After 506 days camped atop a blustery Bastion Pt in defiance of government plans to develop the ancestral land for high-income housing, hundreds of protesters were arrested and evicted.

Bastion Pt 30 years on

Settled in caravans and makeshift huts, the people of Ngati Whatua watched as army trucks rolled in and police filed out.

Capturing conflict: Robin Morrison

Protest photography was one of the themes during our exhibition A Decade of Days – Auckland through Robin Morrison’s eyes. Sharon Hawke and Jos Wheeler, all too familiar with conflict beyond the lens, reflect on Morrison’s images from Bastion Point and the Springbok Tour of 1981.
