October 13: Decentralised occupations nationwide!

Decentralised occupations nationwide!

Occupy New Zealand is pleased to announce their participation in the GlobalNOISE solidarity day of action against austerity alongside over 200 cities worldwide, on October 13, 2012.

GlobalNOISE utilises the "pots and pans" methodology behind the successful 2010 Icelandic revolution, and more recently, the Canadian student movements, to draw attention to the serious issues facing us today, and the urgent need for profound societal change.

Occupy New Zealand ask all peoples of Aotearoa to occupy any location of their choosing, be it urban or rural, high-profile or low-profile, or even mobile!

Please capture footage of your occupation on video, cameras, or with your words, and share your work on the Occupy pages. Become the media!

Occupy New Zealand will be live-tweeting on the Twitter hashtags #O13 #13O & #GlobalNOISE - if you have a Twitter account you can tweet about yours too! Occupy New Zealand’s Twitter network will carry your messages around the globe.

Due to the dateline New Zealand will be the first country in the world experiencing #O13. The whole world will be watching.

The length of time you occupy for, and under what terms, are entirely your own to decide. Occupy New Zealand seek only to spread the idea; not to control it.

Please join this innovative, first-of-its-kind action, to celebrate the birthday of the Occupy movement in New Zealand and to express your solidarity with peaceful, democratic, anti-austerity protesters across the planet.

Issue 49: Werewolf Weekender

Philip Matthews: From The Lost Continent
It’s a case of better late than never for Olivier Assayas’ marvellous After May/Apres Mai, which first screened at Venice in 2012, had a couple of North Island screenings last year during the International Film Festival’s “Autumn Events” season, got a theatrical release in Australia – but not here – and only now appears on DVD, after Assayas himself has moved on.

The Complicatist: Blue Eyed & Soulful
For a while in June, the top two singles on the US Billboard charts featured Iggy Azalea, an Australian model turned hip hop performer. To some, this may seem like just the latest chapter in a long saga of whites ripping off black culture, while enriching themselves in the process. Obviously, there’s some truth in the stereotype. Yet it can also obscure the positive collaborations – in jazz, soul music and hip hop – between musicians who treated each other as creative equals, race regardless. More>>

Satire: Carry On Captaining
Oh hello. Scanner Technician Davis. To what do I owe the pleasure?
You think we’re what?
Oh, pish. This vessel has been travelling along smoothly for generations – particularly smoothly in the last few years though I say so myself – and I happen to know we have never once been hit by an asteroid... More>>
