|The recent events at Mt Eden Prison has generated a lot of debate and concern about the state of prisons in New Zealand. Prison privatisation has also drawn a lot of attention as result. This highlights the issues that exist within the current prison system and the importance for us to understand and carry on the discussion.
JustSpeak Auckland invites you to a public forum that looks to continue this conversation. Along with a panel of speakers, we will explore what prison privatisation in New Zealand currently looks like, the issues that exist within our current system and will consider what the possible solutions there are for this.
