""Round up these dangerous rebels in Auckland, while you're at it." 25 October, 2007

Reference Number: DCDL-0004243

Shows Minister of Sport, Trevor Mallard, sitting at his desk holding up a document with the names 'John Banks' and 'Mike Lee' on it to two policemen, one of whom is armed and is wearing military-style clothing with a face mask and ammunition belt. Trevor Mallard tells them to arrest the two men whose names are on the document while they are at it. Refers to the military-style anti-terrorist raids carried out by the police against activists of various kinds under the Firearms Act and the Terrorism Suppression Act in October 2007 and also to the fact that John Banks was elected Mayor of Auckland and Mike Lee Chair of the Auckland Regional Council and they are involving the government in fierce debate about the funding of the upgrade to Eden Park in preparation for the 2011 Rugby World Cup.
