While in Yogyakarta, Indonesia, for the Asian Media Information and Communication (AMIC) media conference, David Robie was contacted by Newstalk ZB’s Total Recall co-host Sam Bloore for a phone interview.
Sam talked to David about the bombing of the Rainbow Warrior scandal on 10 July 1985 and his recollections as a journalist on board the environmental ship.
Dr David Robie, author of Eyes of Fire: The last voyage of the Rainbow Warrior, talks about the humanitarian voyage to the Marshall Islands and how the sabotage of the ship by French secret agents was part of a pattern of state terrorism against indigenous groups, especially Kanak pro-independence activists during the 1980s.
