From Morning Report, 8:20 am on 30 July 2021

The government will give a long awaited apology to those targeted in the Dawn Raids at the Auckland Town Hall on Sunday.

Manase Lua remembers being a child in Auckland, and the Dawn Raids' effect on his community.

He is a supporter of the activist group the Polynesian Panthers, which formed in June 1971 to campaign for equality, justice and indigenous rights.

His parents were targeted in the Dawn Raids, in the mid-1970s.
