Join us and share the event with your friends.

Aotearoa New Zealand is STILL not for sale! A NATION-WIDE action is happening on Saturday July 14th, with marches and festivals occurring all around the country to demonstrate the widespread and coordinated public opposition against the sale of our state assets. Saturday July 14 will see a march and people’s festival with stalls and music happening in Auckland from 2pm, meeting at Britomart and marching with defiance up Queen Street to reclaim our streets once more. We will bring the march to Myers Park to enjoy festivities into the late afternoon. We warmly call upon all other areas of Aotearoa New Zealand to organise actions on this day as well, and coordinate with the Auckland group to gain support, inspiration and information. Artists and musicians, please get in contact with us. The following weekend, July 20-22, is the National Party conference in Auckland, which will be met with protest by a range of groups that are angered by the many regressive policies that the Party has been proposing and pushing through Parliament. Keep informed, lend a hand and begin a dialogue. Visit www.aotearoaisnotforsale.com to find out what’s happening, join groups, talk to people around the country and get some support in setting up your own action for July 14. If they take our assets, we will reclaim our streets. We will not be divided like our assets. We will be united, we will not be silenced, we will resist this together.
