Public Meeting: We wont pay for their crisis!

We wont pay for their crisis!
Public meeting, free admission
7pm Thursday 11th December
Auckland Trades Hall
147 Great North Road
Grey Lynn

New Zealand is heading for recession. Our jobs, wages, homes, pensions, benifits and public services are all under threat. We did not cause this. It was the financial elite of wealthy bankers, investors and speculators who have put us in this situation, yet they expect us to pay for their crisis. Already we have seen job losses, cuts in services and price rises.

We can not rely on the New Government to protect us. National and Act are the parties of big business, so they will be sure to secure the bosses profits ahead of our jobs, wages and conditions.

We can fight back. Through our unions, our political and community organisations and our ability to protest, we represent a force that can stop these attacks. To do this it is vital we put aside our differences and concentrate on what we agree about, the need to get resistance organised.

Socialist Aotearoa has invited a wide range of speakers; trade unionists, socialists, environmentalists, community groups and interested individuals, to begin the debate on how to unite the left against the effects of the global financial crisis.

Join the Resistance!

...We've been gratified by how many countries want to join with us to work with cutting-edge technologies like in the cyber arena, hypersonics, you can go down a long list and it's great to hear that New Zealand is interested...
