We hope this email finds you well.

We are getting together a band to bring fun music to protests and marches. We are keen to find musicians, people with enthusiasm, percussionists, people who own equipment, and instruments like handheld items people could use even with no musical experience e.g. tambourine, shakers etc. If you would like to get involved in this, send us through an email! 🙂

This week, as part of the Space For Peace Aotearoa campaign, we cohosted a zoom livestreamed webinar: ‘Stop the Militarisation of Space’, with RocketLab Monitor, mana whenua of Māhia, and special guest speaker Prof. Kevin Clements.

Protest RocketLab:
Stop the Militarisation of Space

Monday, 21st June 2021,
at 12:00-1:00 PM

25 Levene Place, Mt Wellington, Auckland

RocketLab is a US owned company, whose major shareholders are US military arms manufacturers.

They have been launching spy and weapon-control capable satellites into Space, from Aotearoa New Zealand.

This is the militarisation of Space! These satellites will likely be used in future conflict and surveillance on Earth.

RocketLab is using NZ as a launchpad, and potentially makes us into a military target. Peace experts have shared concerns that the satellite launches are in breach of our Nuclear Free status.

Join us over lunchtime on Winter Solstice at 12-1pm for speakers and music, and to convey our concerns to RocketLab’s workers, management and to inform the general public.

Let us Be a Presence for Peace Together on the Winter Solstice.
