Warships are coming to Auckland – Let’s organise our resistance now!
April 27, 2016 Leave a comment
Kia ora friends & comrades,
In November 2016, a US warship will be returning to Auckland Harbour for the first time in 32 years for the 75th anniversary of the NZ Navy. At the same time, a weapons conference of 500+ delegates will converge at the Aotea Centre. Would you please get involved in organising a response and resistance to these events?
The weapons conference is sponsored by the world’s largest weapons manufacturers and others involved in wider military-prison-social control-surveillance industries. These include Lockheed Martin, Serco, General Dynamics, Sagem and Thales.
I have organised a space for an initial meeting: Unite Union, Western Springs Road on Thursday, May 12 at 7pm. Please put this in your diary & come if you can.
Would you please pass this invitation along to other good folks & organisations you know who are interested in this work?
Thank you & I hope to see you then.
Ngā mihi mahana,
