Waiheke Public Meeting

The community of Waiheke (and anyone that would like to attend) are invited to a public meeting at Morra Hall on the 26th of September 7-9pm. The purpose of meeting is to plan a response to the Government’s planned Week of War (14th-21st November)
Hear brief presentations from:
• Susi Newborn, Waiheke co-founder of Greenpeace; Rainbow Warrior buyer, namer and crew; activist, author and filmmaker.
• Kevin Hester, Rakino resident and veteran of the 1980s Peace Squadron
• Valerie Morse is a Kaipara-based peace activist, writer and gardener
• Billy Hania is a Palestinian-Kiwi with an active stance for Peace and Justice on multiple fronts.

The Government is marketing the Week of War as a celebration. War is not a celebration.

Action Co-ordination Meeting for groups & organisations

Are you part of a group or organisation that is interested in doing some work in support of the campaign to stop the warships & weapons expo?

Please join us.

Sign the No Warships! No Weapons Expo! Petition

If you haven’t already signed our petition, please take a minute to tell Parliament to:

1. Stop providing sponsorship, funding and support to the annual NZ Defence Industry expo, and militarisation.

2. Redirect the “Vote Defence Budget” for urgent housing, educational, health, social and environmental needs, and for supporting an increased refugee intake from war torn countries.

3. Support a strong stand for peace. Kia kaha.
