Kia ora koutou,
Please distribute the below info to all of your networks – we can discuss at our meeting this afternoon.
On 16 & 17 November this year, a weapons and military expo of 500 of the world’s largest arms dealers will converge on Auckland’s Viaduct Harbour. Alongside this, the NZ Navy has invited warships and war-makers from across the globe to “celebrate” its 75th birthday.
Auckland Peace Action has formed to organise resistance to these events and to build solidarity among peoples in many interconnected struggles. We are united in our determination to stop the daily murdering, maiming, impoverishment and oppression of billions of ordinary people around the globe.
We are reaching out to organisations and groups across the country to build relationships of mutual solidarity and support, and we are hosting an open meeting on Thursday 29 September 2016 at 7pm at Auckland Trades Hall, 147 Great North Road, to discuss our plans and how you and your organisation might collaborate with us. Please join us.
If you have any questions in the meantime, contact us on
