WELLINGTON JOINS GLOBAL PRO-CAPITALISM RALLY

On 2nd December 2001, Wellington will join over 100 cities around the world in hosting "WalkForCapitalism" - the first annual Global Rally for Capitalism. Wellington's walkers will depart from Manners Mall at noon on Sunday and head towards our destination - Midland Park in Lambton Quay.

"Capitalism is freedom of choice. Businesses can choose what to produce. Workers can choose who to work for. Consumers can choose what goods or services to buy. The relationships between employers and employees, between buyers and sellers, are formed voluntarily," says Wellington coordinator Tina White.

The point will be to celebrate & highlight the benefits of capitalism.

WE INVITE YOU TO JOIN US!

Not everyone felt so compassionate. More>>
