Stop the evictions

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Auckland Peace Action (APA) stands in solidarity with Niki Rauti as she opposes her eviction from her home of several decades, an act being perpetrated by the Tāmaki Redevelopment Company in order to sell the land.

APA spokesperson Virginia Lambert said, “The Tāmaki Redevelopment Company’s policy of evicting people from their homes and selling the land to property developers is awful and unjust”.

“This forced displacement of people from their land to make way for the inhabitation of the land by wealthy people of the dominant ethnic group has a long and sordid history. From the Israeli occupation of Palestine to the mass resettlements in Eastern Europe during the World Wars, destroying the houses of resisting populations, forcibly resettling them and stealing their land has been a popular method of stamping out resistance and destroying the society and culture of the resisting peoples.”

“Why is the government selling state housing in Auckland in the middle of a serious housing crisis? The government is either delusional, malicious or both. The New Zealand Government is willing to treat its own citizens as if they were an enemy to be eliminated.”

The Tāmaki Redevelopment Company will attempt to gain another possession order on the 21st of February. The occupation of Niki’s home to protect against eviction attempts will begin on the 19th of February. Stand for basic human decency and oppose this attack on the people of Glen Innes.
