This pamphlet was prepared by ACORD (the Auckland Committee on Racism and Discrimination) and published by Amnesty Aroha. It tells the story of a dawn raid on a family of Tongans for allegedly overstaying in New Zealand in 1976. The raids in part reflected a scapegoating of Pacific people as the New Zealand economy deteriorated in the mid-1970s.
