Media Release: Peace Actions underway against Weapons Expo

Auckland Peace Action

October 31, 2018

“Community members and peace activists from across Aotearoa are in place at strategic points around the Weapons Expo in Palmerston North to blockade and delay delegates attending this year’s event.”

“Despite a massive use of police resources, activists have still been effective in disrupting the normal operation of these war profiteers.”

“The peace movement is using tactics of non-violent direct action to stop war at its source: with the people who directly profit from waging war.”

“We expect that the police and security will respect the human rights of people who are standing against war.”

"Actions will continue over the next two days."
