  • Support the call for an inquiry already launched by Amnesty International New Zealand (this has the advantage of not duplicating effort, but the disadvantage is that we’d lose our ability to move quickly, or to go further than Amnesty e.g. by calling for an apology and reparation to the village)
  • Launch our own call for an inquiry (this would support Amnesty’s call but give us the freedom to move quickly as new information comes to light, and to go further than Amnesty if needed, this approach worked well when we campaigned in parallel to Amnesty on the refugee campaign last year)
