Union leader Mike Treen to join flotilla to Gaza in July

Mike Treen is a prominent, life-long human rights campaigner and trade union leader in New Zealand.

Mike Treen is the National Director of the Unite Union and spokesperson for Global Peace & Justice Auckland.

Kia Ora Gaza has selected Mike Treen to represent New Zealand/Aotearoa on the next international Freedom Flotilla to challenge Israel’s illegal and inhumane, 10-year blockade of Gaza. He will join other eminent rights advocates representing 20 countries on board the four-boat flotilla, due to reach Gaza in late July.

Mike Treen spoke with acclaimed US/Palestinian author Dr Baroud who is currently on a speaking tour of New Zealand on why he is going on the Flotilla to break the Israeli blockade of Gaza. (See link below)
