Aotearoa is Not for Sale Marches in a Last 'Big Push'

ANFS PRESS RELEASE - Thursday December 6 -


Aotearoa is Not for Sale Marches in a Last 'Big Push' in Support of the Keep Our Assets Petition, Friday December 7 at 6pm, Britomart to Aotea Square

The Auckland Branch of the “Aotearoa is Not for Sale” Committee has called for a “Big Push” in support of the petition against Asset Sales on Friday, at 6 PM. The march will begin at Britomart, and proceed to Aotea Square. Phil Twyford, Hone Harawira and Jane Kelsey are expected to speak at the march.

ANFS is broad coalition of organisations from across the political spectrum, united against the sale of New Zealand's assets.

Members of “Aotearoa is Not for Sale” have held a number of marches and events during 2012 to raise public awareness of the threat that the government's asset sales agenda poses to our economic self-sufficiency.

This march is in celebration of the fact that more than 300,000 people have already signed the petition. As part of the Big Push, we hope to reach our target of 310,000 verifiable signatures by the date of the march.

Strong endorsements have been received from the New Zealand Labour Party, the Mana Movement, the Green Party, New Zealand First, the Alliance, the Council of Trade Unions, the CTU Runanga Kaimahi Maori, the Unite Union, MUNZ, the Working Womens Resource Centre, We are the University, the Tamaki Housing Action Group, Kia Maia Ratana Church, Climate Justice Aotearoa, the Migrant Workers Association and Socialist Aotearoa. Members of these groups are encouraged to attend with friends and supporters.

In fact, is there anything that can be validly commemorated on this 100th anniversary of Gallipoli?

Beyond, that is, a fleeting sense of empathy with the thousands of soldiers killed or wounded on April 25 1915 and in the months thereafter, until the whole thing was finally called off in December 1915.

(Most of the New Zealand survivors were transferred to the trenches in France, and eventually to the battle of the Somme in 1916.) More>>
