Flag Burning in Protest at 5pm
Flag Burning in protest of NZ involvement in US Wars Protest at Parliament 5pm Thursday 29th of July
The reason why the New Zealand flag was burnt was obscured by the arguments of whether it should be legal or illegal to burn it. Why the legal issue around this has been sorted out, the reason why New Zealanders were so disgusted in their government’s actions and the dishonour they have brought on the country that we burnt a flag in protest have not changed.
The New Zealand Governments continued involvement in US imperialist wars under the banner of ‘The War on Terror’ is illegal, amoral and unjust. Peace Action Wellington calls for all NZ troops to be pulled out of Afghanistan and Iraq now!
The protest will start to gather
in parliament grounds at 4.30pm with the flag burning to
take place at 5pm.
