CBD parks alive with the sound of Music in Parks

Parks across Auckland’s CBD will be alive with the music of Auckland Council Music in Parks and the silver screen showings for Movies in Parks this summer.

These events are part of Auckland Council’s Music and Movies in Parks’ fantastic line up of free outdoor entertainment.

Cr Alf Filipaina, Chair Arts, Culture and Events Committee says that these events are a great chance to enjoy Auckland’s CBD during the summer.

“The CBD is not just about stores and universities, there are some great parks in our central suburbs, which are perfect for these types of events,” he says.

Filipaina continues, “No matter what part of Auckland you are from, why not grab the whānau and head in to the city and make a day of it.”

Music and Movies in Parks runs from Saturday 11 January until Saturday 22 March 2014 and features more than 70 musical acts and 18 movies in parks across Auckland.

Gordon Campbell: On Drone Strikes And Judith Collins‘ Last Stand

The news that a New Zealand citizen was killed last November in a US drone attack in Yemen brings the drones controversy closer to home.

To the US, drones are a legitimate response to the threat posed by the al Qaeda organisation and its franchisees... To the US, the drones carry the added advantage of not putting US troops at risk on the ground, and minimises the need for putting them in large numbers in bases in the countries concerned, always a politically sensitive point.

The counter-argument, well articulated by security analyst Paul Buchanan on RNZ this morning, is that this particular drone attack can be said to amount to an extra-judicial execution of a New Zealand citizen by one of our military allies, in circumstances where the person concerned posed no threat to New Zealand’s domestic security.
