"Polynesian Panther" History Soon to be Launched

With the help of $5,000 of your money from Creative NZ, Reeds are set to publish on June 9th a history of the Polynesian Panther Movement. A '70s and '80s phenononon, the Panthers were directly modelled on their US counterparts, the Black Panthers, right down to the berets, shades, slogans and moustaches.

Edited by "Panther" founder member and current Director of Pacific Island Studies at Auckland University, Dr Melanie Anae, the book should shed more light on the Marxist underpinnings of racial politics in NZ.

In a 2004 "Anew" article Dr Anae quotes from some Panther material to demonstrate their proposed solution to the "racism" they encountered.

The revolution we openly rap about is one of total change. The revolution is one to liberate us from racism, oppression and capitalism. We see many of our problems of oppression and racism are tools of this society's outlook based on capitalism; hence for total change one must change society altogether (Polynesian Panther Party, 1975: 226)

Worth a look for anyone interested in "National Question" politics.

This is so awesome! I'm going to go to the book shop on June 9 and buy a copy. Thanks for the news of this Trev because I didn't know about it before hand.

The Polynesian Panthers are an inspiration.

For fighting: racism, unfair racist immigration rules, dawn raids, police harassment and idiotic rulers like Muldoon.

For supporting elderly people in the community and coming up with community measures to stop poverty and poor school results not relying on the taxpayer (waiting for Trev to say something like "well Cameron why do they need $5000 to publish their book"). Panthers used to run homework workshops and other programmes of the like for Island youth. They also helped out old Polynesian people.

The Polynesian Panthers are awesome.

"By your logic a Samoan Church would be racist because it doesn't have white people in it." Bullshit.

If I were to walk into a Samoan Church on Sunday, I would be confident of a warm Christian welcome.

Not so with your beloved panthers. I'm not one of them you see.

And I will repeat my question:

What do your 'awesome' panthers do for white people? (no I'm not talking white fellow travelers either)
