Murray Horton Speaking Tour
March 31- May 29
Who’s running the show? And in whose interests?
Murray Horton is the long serving Organiser and spokesperson for two Christchurch-based groups, the Campaign Against
Foreign Control of Aotearoa (CAFCA) and the Anti-Bases Campaign (ABC). He has been a political activist since the late
1960s and has a national profile as a campaigner, writer, speaker, organiser and researcher.
Between the end of March and the end of May he is undertaking an election year national speaking tour, from Dunedin to
Kaitaia, and many places inbetween (he has been doing these election year tours for a couple of decades, most recently
Murray will be speaking on four broad topics, which are central to both CAFCA and ABC:
• People’s Rights Before Corporate Profit
• Public Service Not Private Profit
• An Independent Foreign Policy
• No Unjust Secret Treaties
These topics include subjects such: as transnational corporations’ tax avoidance; corporate welfare; asset sales; spying
abuses by the GCSB/NSA; the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPPA) and Five Eyes, plus plenty more. The speech
concentrates on the big picture and is accompanied by a wealth of corroborating material which provides the detail.
These are among the most important issues facing the country; they underlie everything else that the people of this
country are concerned about. Any campaign, electoral or otherwise, that doesn’t include them is missing the point. CAFCA
and ABC want an independent Aotearoa based on policies of economic, military and political self-reliance, using
Aotearoa’s resources for the benefit of the people of Aotearoa. This country needs People Power to let the world know
that Aotearoa is not for sale!
