Auckland March To Stop The US War! – Sept 29th

AUCKLAND MARCH TO STOP THE US WAR!

PRESS RELEASE

USE IMMEDIATE

MARCH TO STOP THE US WAR!

4pm Saturday September 29th, QEII square

Rally 4.00pm / March 5.00pm / Vigil 6.00pm QE2 / Queen St / Aotea Sq Auckland Saturday 29 September

A rally, march and vigil to show New Zealand's opposition to the United States government's preparation for war against Afghanistan has been organised for Sat 29 September starting at 4pm in QE2 square, Auckland.

A large meeting of individuals, social and political groups met in Auckland on Sunday 23 Sept and declared their opposition to the Labour/Alliance government's support of the US position.

It is clear that the US government's reaction to the terrorist attacks in Washington and New York will result in the deaths of more innocent people.

A further concern expressed is the racist attacks against Moslems and people from the middle east: events such as recent attacks on mosques in Hamilton and Auckland.

The march which will begin with a rally in QE2 square will conclude in Aotea square where a vigil will take place.
