What's On At Peace Movement Aotearoa

Kia ora Wellington people,

the CTU meeting tonight (as advertised in the last 'what's on', see listing below) is still going ahead, but the topic will be Fiji - not East Timor. The East Timor discussion will happen in a future meeting. ___________________________________

~ THURS, 8 June - the CTU is running a series of "drinks and debate" on the second Thursday of each month. In June, the plan is to run a session on East Timor as the ACTU has been very active in solidarity with the people of East Timor and it is hoped to stimulate more action among NZ unions. The next meeting is at 5.30pm, Thursday, 8 June in the PSA Penthouse, 11 Aurora Tce, just off The Terrace. It is expected that Jorge Teme, who is studying at Massey and is the CNRM representative in New Zealand, will report on the situation in East Timor, from where he has just returned. We hope to learn of the latest developments in East Timor and what we can do to help. __________________________________

Gordon Campbell: On Our Military Roles In Iraq & Afghanistan

The politics of the deployment extension have degenerated into a slanging match about whether the previous National government was right or wrong to make the initial commitment to Iraq – and whether the extension is a responsible thing given our joint training role in Iraq with Australia, or is hypocritical in the light of prior statements made by a previous Labour leader etc. etc. etc.

As usual, the benefit – or otherwise – of our military presence to the people on the receiving end has barely had a look in. More>>
