National Party Welcoming Committee in Christchurch

National Party Welcoming Committee in Christchurch

On Monday 5th September the National Party are descending on Christchurch to hold their weekly cabinet meeting at the Copthorne Hotel - 449 Memorial Avenue. This will be the first time in 16 years that a cabinet has met outside the Beehive. Action for Christchurch East and Unite Union thought it would be a nice opportunity to give them a warm welcome and 'thank them' for their efforts!

Date: Mon Sept 5th
Time: 1.30pm - 3.30pm
Copthorne Hotel, 449 Memorial Avenue

Protest! Celebrate! Get Involved!

Between 1.30pm and 3.30pm we will hear from real people. Speeches from young casualised workers, long term beneficiaries, teachers facing cuts and mandatory grading, families left in the dark by the EQC response and fantastic live music from local artists. We warmly invite everyone who wants to let National know how they really feel about the government's outrageous policies. This will be a festive event and an opportunity for people to meet and plan for future action in our garden city.

Chief Supporters:

• Action for Christchurch East /http://actionforchristchurcheast.blogspot.com/
• Unite Union http://www.unite.org.nz/
• Beyond Resistance http://beyondresistance.wordpress.com/
