Take Action: Stop the War & Bring the Troops Home

On 30 June 2019, New Zealand’s deployment to Iraq is due to end. We want to make sure that happens. This current deployment of up to 121 soldiers has already been extended twice. It continues the little-known but 15-year-long New Zealand military occupation in Iraq. Recent revelations about the deployment suggest it has undergone significant changes expanding its original mandate into some questionable activities.

We are asking you to take action today as a decision will be taken in the next two weeks. We are targeting emails to Deputy Prime Minister Winston Peters with this campaign because we think the call about the deployment sits with him. His member Ron Mark is the Minister of Defence – but as a former soldier, Ron Mark will be doing everything in his power to extend the NZ deployment another six months. Winston has the power to bring this deployment to an end.
