Aftermath of Urewera arrests

2007 - For John Mayrick seeing his wife Ruth Gerzon poring over family genealogy charts marking those killed in 2nd world war concentration camps, aided their family politicisation and commitment in standing against social injustice. So, when police entered their property on the 15th of October, arrested daughter Marama Mayrick, and carted away computers, John was reminded of his anti apartheid Springbok tour days. John and Ruth spoke to Maraea seven days (21st October) after Marama’s arrest talking of their daughter, her activism, jewellery making and their relationship with the people of Te Urewera.
