In 1987, 30 years ago, Aotearoa New Zealand’s Nuclear Free Zone Act was introduced. In 1981, 6 years earlier, Devonport Borough had declared itself a Nuclear Free Zone, New Zealand’s first.

It was an expression of Council’s concern at the proliferation of nuclear weapons. By November 1983, 33 other municipalities around the country had joined Devonport in declaring themselves nuclear free.

This exhibition, organised by Ruth Coombes on behalf of WILPF (Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom) and the Devonport Peace Group celebrates Devonport’s stance. It features historic images by Gil Hanly and John Miller, two committed long-term documentary photographers, who were heavily involved in photographing significant peace protests in New Zealand.

We invite you to join us to celebrate the passing of this momentous legislation.

Opening Saturday 27 May, 2 - 3:30pm.
