Dissecting the GCSB bill

Wednesday 10 Jul 2013 7:04 p.m.

In short, the GCSB bill allows the organisation to spy on New Zealanders and to pass what they learn on to foreign governments.

"If you don't do anything wrong, you have nothing to hide" is a common response to criticism of such unprecedented power.

But the SIS can already spy on New Zealanders and so can the police.

The GCSB bill connects domestic spying to global spy networks, which, as we've recently learnt, are listening to almost everyone.

Now, the bill is being passed under urgency.

But why? Shouldn't we get this right?

The Prime Minister is now trying to win support from either Peter Dunne or New Zealand First to get the bill through.

But whose bill is it, really? And who will we be spying for?

Watch the full video to find out.
