Media Release

 

Communist League announces candidates for 2008 general election.

The Communist League is campaigning in the 2008 general election to present a working-class alternative to Labour, National, and the other parties of capitalism that defend the interests of the ruling rich.

The League is standing two candidates in Auckland. In Maungakiekie, the candidate is factory worker Patrick Brown, 54. In Manukau East, the candidate is Annalucia Vermunt, 40, a meat worker.

The candidates and their supporters put forward a programme for working people to defend their interests in face of the growing world financial crisis and unfolding recession. They champion union fights and struggles in defence of democratic rights.

The socialist candidates demand the immediate withdrawal of all New Zealand armed forces and police from Afghanistan, East Timor, the Solomon Islands and everywhere else they are stationed. They call for an end to the New Zealand government’s sanctions on Fiji.

Greens: Oil Drilling Face-Off With Labour

The plan is the second component of the Party’s environmental priority this election: Rivers clean enough to swim in again, and beaches safe from oil spills.

The Green Party loves New Zealand and will create a cleaner environment where our beaches remain open for swimming, not closed for oil spills.

The key policy points in the Green Party’s plan to protect our beaches from oil spills are to:
1. Prohibit deep sea oil drilling;
2. Implement compulsory shipping lanes for coastal shipping;
3. Build Maritime New Zealand’s oil spill response capability; and
4. Introduce a stronger legal framework so that when accidents do happen, the New Zealand taxpayer does not have to pay for the clean-up. More>>
