Remember Bastion Point flyer

A flyer about stopping the subdivision of Bastion Point, and requesting support for a planned march and picket in Palmerston North. It also contains information about the land historically and the issues. Bastion Point has come to symbolise Māori land issues. It was given to the Crown by Ngāti Whātua as a defence site during the Russian scare of 1885. In 1977–78 a 506-day protest against a proposed Crown sale was held there, which ended when the Police and Army evicted the Ngati Wahtua people and supporters. The march and picket was arranged for the 4th anniversary of that occasion.
