Base Deception

Base Deception”, made in 1994 by Sam Miller for the Anti-Bases Campaign, is a short (14 minutes) documentary about the US military transport base at Christchurch International Airport (Harewood). It is fronted throughout by the late Bob Leonard of ABC and features wonderful footage of the Hiroshima Day arrests of Moana Cole and Ciaron O’Reilly for trespass inside the base. Obviously, it is up to date as of 1994 but the US base is still at Christchurch Airport (as it has been since the 1950s), albeit in a reduced and changed form.
