Organiser Joe Carolan-
"Charter Schools.
Crafar Farms.
Deep Sea Oil Drilling by Petrobas off the East Coast.
Wharfies facing the sack as Ports Of Auckland gears up to privatise.

And now no Treaty when it comes to selling off Public Assets.

There is huge opposition to the government's plans to privatise state assets. Electricity is already too expensive in this country- we remember when Folole Muliaga died after she was disconnected for getting behind on her bills. Mums and Dads can't pay the bills on the poverty wages they earn, let alone buy back what they already own. Its not just American and Australian multinationals and the Chinese State we're worried about- Our concern is that the government will sell off the family silver to their rich friends, the elite 1%, both domestic and international.

We want to mobilise thousands of people to march on the streets of Auckland to say Aotearoa is not for Sale. Friday's meeting will bring together the political Left with union and community campaigns, such as the GI Tenants resisiting eviction and the Wharfies fighting casualisation.
Our public assets, our schools, our jobs and our homes are all under attack. Its time to draw a line in the sand and defeat the government on the streets."

New Zealand is for sale. Come to the Forum this Friday to begin organising the fightback to defend Aotearoa.
