An Activist Response To Globalisation - Tour

NEW CENTURY, OLD BATTLES

AN ACTIVIST RESPONSE TO GLOBALISATION, WAR & THE ELECTION

SPEAKER: MURRAY HORTON

Murray Horton is the organiser for the Campaign Against Foreign Control of Aotearoa (CAFCA), based in Christchurch. He speaks on the fundamental issues that are not being addressed by politicians or the mainstream media:

* Corporate globalisation and the transnational corporations and international institutions which drive it. This is the greatest threat to peace and democracy.

* War, the inevitable outcome of the whole process.

* The election. Where are our politicians taking New Zealand?

* And, most importantly, what we can do about these issues.

Murray Horton has been a leading political activist since 1969, both in New Zealand and overseas. He is a graduate of the University of Canterbury and has worked in many jobs, including more than 14 years as a Railways labourer (and union official). He has been the fulltime organiser for CAFCA and the Anti-Bases Campaign since 1991, being editor of both "Foreign Control Watchdog" and "Peace Researcher".

CAFCA has been researching and campaigning since the 1970s to expose and oppose all aspects of foreign control in this country. CAFCA is Leftwing, progressive nationalist, internationalist and anti-imperialist. It is independent of all political parties. CAFCA is recognised as the country’s leading authority on foreign control.

Gordon Campbell: On The Peters/Ardern Triumph

There are a lot of good reasons to feel joyful about this outcome. It is what so many young voters – the best hope for the country’s future – wanted.

Far more important than the implications for the Economy Gods ( is the dollar up or down? ) last night’s outcome will also mean many, many vulnerable New Zealanders will have a better life over the next three years at least.

Yet the desire for change was in the majority, across the country..>>>More
