Memorial Gathering for the late G H (Bill) Andersen

There will be a memorial gathering for the late Bill Andersen on Thursday, 27 January at 4 pm at the Orakei Marae (Bastion Point) in Auckland, and continuing afterwards at the Orakei RSA, 178 Kepa Rd.

Bill was an outstanding communist militant and union leader who made an historic contribution to New Zealand and especially to the workers’ movement. He touched the lives of thousands of people with his determined advocacy of workers’ rights and interests and with his humble and generous approach to life. Everyone is invited to join with Bill’s family, his comrades in the Socialist Party of Aotearoa and the National Distribution Union and all his friends to celebrate the life of this extraordinary man.

The meeting will begin with a powhiri and then there will be a programme of speakers and songs. The speakers will be Moana Jackson, Isaac Otineru, Toluono Nati Mata’afa, Laila Harré, Mike Jackson (NDU), the Andersen family, and Brendan Tuohy (Socialist Party of Aotearoa).

Parking is available at the marae, and free buses will run from the Britomart Centre from 3 pm and returning after the event.

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