March/Rally to Oppose Asset Sales
Do you want your prized assets such as power companies, water companies, forestry, primary production farmland, schools and hospitals to be owned by foreign interests?
John Key and the National-led government do not have a mandate to sell our assets, and we want to let them know this.
The first in a series of protests will begin on Tuesday 7th of Februrary at midday. We will meet in Civic Square and then march down Lambton Quay to parliament grounds. When we get there we will make as much noise as we possibly can to let the first sitting of parliament for 2012 know how ordinary New Zealand people feel.
We encourage you to follow our lead and join with other like-minded people in this protest. Occupy Wellington is a non-partisan non-politically aligned group that seeks to work with all fair-minded people for the common good.
Will you join us? Will you help us spread the word? The first protest may be small but it will get bigger and bigger until the current Government cannot ignore us.
Please contact Jonathan jonathanelliotnz@gmail.com for more information. www.occupywellington.org
We want to tell John Key that he can still stop the sales. Will you join us?
Speakers at the rally so far include Occupy Wellington, New Zealand First, NZ Unions (CTU), NZ Labour Party, Greens and more have been approached from Mana Party, Maori Party, Anarchists, Grey Power and others. Thanks for your attention.
The speaking roster is short, and we do need an immediate response to secure a place in the speaking order. 5 minutes maximum will be allocated per speaker.
