NEW ZEALAND IS NOT FOR SALE – Public meeting this coming Sunday
Are you worried about who owns and controls New Zealand’s assets? Maybe you should be. Remember how our waste and recycling services contract was taken off our community-owned company and an Australian company took over?
Murray Horton, from the Campaign Against Foreign Control of Aeoteroa, (CAFCA) will be including Waiheke in his NZ Speaking Tour. We are obviously a place not to be missed. The Waiheke Greens will be hosting Murrary at Surfdale Hall, 3rd April at 2:00. He will join us to speak to, and discuss, the urgent issues of the day. Hopefully he’ll manage to join us for a cup-of tea before he has to be back to Auckland on the 4:00 Ferry.
Murray will cover:
- The Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement and the dangers it poses to the NZ economy and to our very democracy
- Privatisation of our public assets
- The relentless takeover of NZ businesses and land by transnational coporations.
He is positing that a change of government in the November 26th Election will not, in itself be enough to change the disastrous course on which this country is set. Murray will be giving us the background of information and the means to meet the most important challenge as he sees it “how the New Zealand people can fight back; it’s too important to be left up to the politicians”.
Make this whistle stop worthwhile, by coming along to the Surfdale Hall on the 3rd, and giving Murray the benefit of a lively Waiheke discussion.
