Murray Horton Speaking Tour : Who’s Running The Show?

MURRAY HORTON SPEAKING TOUR
May 4 - 29

Who’s Running The Show? And In Whose Interests?

Murray Horton is the long serving Organiser and spokesperson for two Christchurch-based groups, the Campaign Against Foreign Control of Aotearoa (CAFCA) and the Anti-Bases Campaign (ABC). He has been a political activist since the late 1960s and has a national profile as a campaigner, writer, speaker, organiser and researcher.

During May he is undertaking an election year North Island speaking tour, from Kaitaia to Wellington, and many places inbetween. He has already toured the South Island, in March and April (he has been doing these election year tours for a couple of decades, most recently in 2011).

The full itinerary is at http://2014cafcatour.blogspot.co.nz/p/blog-page.html.

Murray will be speaking on four broad topics, which are central to both CAFCA and ABC:

People’s Rights Before Corporate Profit

Public Service Not Private Profit

An Independent Foreign Policy

No Unjust Secret Treaties

These topics include subjects such: as transnational corporations’ tax avoidance; corporate welfare; asset sales; spying abuses by the GCSB/NSA; the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPPA) and Five Eyes, plus plenty more. The speech concentrates on the big picture and is accompanied by a wealth of corroborating material which provides the detail.

These are among the most important issues facing the country; they underlie everything else that the people of this country are concerned about. Any campaign, electoral or otherwise, that doesn’t include them is missing the point. CAFCA and ABC want an independent Aotearoa based on policies of economic, military and political self-reliance, using Aotearoa’s resources for the benefit of the people of Aotearoa. This country needs People Power to let the world know that Aotearoa is not for sale!
