Bruce Moon, a retired physicist and avid historian, was invited by the Nelson Institute to give a talk at Nelson’s Elma Turner Library, on 8th April. He chose to speak on New Zealand's "fake history" related to Treaty of Waitangi issues, billed as “Twisting the Treaty and other fake history”.
But, four days before he was due to present, the talk was unexpectedly cancelled. It was reported that this action had been taken because the Nelson Council and library had been contacted in such a threatening manner that it was considered a “health and safety matter” if the talk were to proceed.
Two months later, a venue was finally found. Bruce made his presentation at the Hearing Associations rooms on 7th July, (see Nelson Mail article HERE). Reports from attendees say that the room was packed, and his presentation well received. Well done Bruce.
