If you wish to take advantage of the opportunity to put your blood-red handprint on the Awards board, then you may want to bring a waterproof glove with you; soap water and towels will be provided for those without gloves.

Organised by people from the Wellington peace/anti-war response network.* Note - from the Martin Luther King quote “We have guided missiles and misguided men”.
