Title: First world authoritarianism: Lessons from Singapore
Date & Time: Wednesday, 27th November @ 12:00 – 1:00 pm
Venue: Palmerston North City Library, Events Centre, Ground Floor, Palmerston North.

Public Talk Abstract:

Authoritarianism is said to be on the rise and democracy in retreat in many parts of the world. Commentators often point out this trend in long standing liberal democracies like the United States but also to the consolidation of power in regimes like China and Russia. What can we learn from Singapore’s experience to combat the rise of authoritarianism? In this talk, Mr Wham will talk about one party rule in Singapore, how it is perpetuated and the State’s and Singapore society’s response to activism and advocacy.

Date & Time: Thursday, 28th November @ 12:00-1:00 pm
Venue: GLB3.02 Manawatu, Massey University
Topic: A free workshop on Dissent and resistance: Negotiating boundaries in Singaporean activism by Mr. Jolovan Wham.

Workshop Abstract:

Activists in one party states or dictatorships are often detained and imprisoned for years. In some cases, they are murdered and disappeared. The Singapore state eschews such extreme tactics and yet retains almost absolute control over the population. What are the opportunities for dissent and resistance in such a controlled environment? What tactics and strategies have activists used to achieve their goals?

CARE PUBLIC TALK with Julie Webb-Pullman Kiwi War Crime Investigator and Journalist

CARE PUBLIC TALK with Julie Webb-Pullman, Kiwi War Crime Investigator and Journalist

Date: Monday 21st October 2019

Time: 05.30 pm – 06.45 pm

Venue: Palmerston North Library – Ground Floor

Abstract:

Kiwi war crime investigator and journalist Julie Webb-Pullman has been working in Gaza since 2011 and investigating war crimes and crimes against humanity committed there since 2014.

Julie will talk about attacks on health facilities and personnel in Gaza, and local attempts to seek justice through the International Criminal Court. She will screen a 12-minute documentary interviewing patients, staff, victims and refuge-seekers about the 2014 attack on Al Aqsa Hospital, and discuss some of the issues and difficulties in seeking and obtaining justice at the international level.

The issues faced include from the obtaining and preservation of evidence to its progress through the ICC system in The Hague, where she recently met with officers from the Victims and Prosecutor’s sections to discuss the Gaza situation, including the Great March of Return.

Julie Webb-Pullman is a New Zealander who has been writing from Gaza since 2011. Her work has appeared in Gaza SCOOP, Palestine Chronicle, Global Research, Havana Times, Prensa Latina, Dissident Voice, Tortilla Con Sal, Al Jazeera and Green Left Weekly.

Fundraising Adopt an Investigator! (The fundraising proposal behind this visit)

Although investigators work in pairs, with one female and one male, The Gaza Centre for Human Rights hopes that the generosity of kiwis will fund at least one investigator position for one year, at a cost of $6,000 USD (NZ$10,000). Julie will be fundraising throughout the country to try to raise this. We are hopeful our friends across the ditch will fund the other position, if we are not able to manage it from New Zealand.

Julie’s work on war crimes in Gaza has been published in The Lancet, and presented at international conferences, the most recent being a poster presentation on developing international guidelines for evidence collection in conflict zones. They welcome further collaboration with other scientists, researchers and academics for future publication and presentation.
