What Did they go through?
The dawn raids had a massive impact on the polynesian people that were travelling to New Zealand to look for work.Every time when the polynesian people are sleeping the cops would break into their houses and demand for their id to see if they were over staying.The reason the polynesians came to new zealand for work was because they were short on labour and were looking for work.this happened from 1971.The primeminster stated that he did not want this country too flood and the polynesians to take all of the jobs.As a result most of the polynesian people got sent back to where they came from and some losing their jobs.After most of the polynesians got sent back people started protesting.
Who Did this
The government were the people who were supporting the dawn raids and saying we don’t need these people in our country even though they were the ones who invited them to come to their country and work in labour.It was really bad they were wrong for doing this to the polynesians especially if they are getting kicked out of their houses to live on the street even though they paid for it and everything.So to be honest it was mainly their property and the police had no right to kick them out of their property.
What did it do to the polynesians
Sadly the polynesians had been forced out of their houses and evicted because they were overstaying but really the europeans were overstaying and the police didn’t care so they were mainly setting a target on the polynesians.Most kids and babies were homeless because of the dawn raids so this made it hard for them to live.But They fought back.They started to protest and go for a long march through New Zealand telling the people what had been happening to their lives and how bad the government was for doing this.Some adults also got fired from their jobs because of this and mainly had no food or water.
When did this start to happen
In 1971 the polynesians started to travel to new zealand and mainly all of them arrived in 1973 most of the police that were doing the dawn raids mainly took place in auckland because it was such a large city and was the closest large city near the islands.
We stopped the dawn raids but it was really bad.We should never have anything like this again in the future no more discriminating against other people because they look a certain way or act different to other people
