“This morning we are using non-violent direct action to stop Weapons Expo delegates from getting to the Events Centre on day two of the event,” said Auckland Peace Action member Valerie Morse.
“Activists are locked on and in place in front of delegate buses along the way to the Centre.
“This war profiteers meeting cannot be allowed to proceed as it is; it is an industry that makes money from the human misery of war. That is why we continue to work to shut this event down.”
“The Defence Industry is a nice name for the global arms trade. The sponsors at this event include some of the largest weapons companies in the world including Lockheed Martin. ”
“Our world desperately needs a radical shift away from the business of killing, and towards a cooperative and sustainable planet. This isn’t an idealist dream – it is an urgent necessity. The creative potential of the human race is almost limitless; we can and must create a different world free of war and all its harms.”
