Dear all

Thank you for attending meeting on Tuesday 29th. The next meeting will occur on Tues 5th April at Methodist chruch on Pitt Street, near corner of Karangahape Rd at 7pm. Please distribute as widely as possible. Draft Press Statement follows.



MARCH FOR SOCIAL JUSTICE. John Key is not working for New Zealand.

A new Coalition of community groups, churches and unions has been formed. Our slogan is Social Justice (meeting occured on the 29th March 2011).

Our aim is to challenge the policies of John Key and the National/Act/Maori party Government.We beleive they are bankrupt and are not serving the interests of the majority of New Zealanders.

We are organising a MASS MOBILISATION of ordinary Kiwis on SUNDAY 1ST MAY. Also more action when National announces the BUDGET on 19th May 2011.

From Cairo to London ordinary people are challenging the Free Market perscription from government cuts to privatisation/asset sales.

New Zealanders are angry about GST, milk prices and secret Trade deals.. About cuts to Early Childhood education and privatisation of electiricty.

Meredydd Barrar, spokesperson says, “Enough is enough. Recent government announcements about cuts and a Budget that will certainly condemn the majority of New Zealanders to relative poverty is not acceptable. Children and struggling families as well as students looking to further their higher education will be penalised”.

“There is a latent anger in New Zealnd at the moment. We aim to translate it into action.

Nationals policies of cut backs and austerity measures will increase the gap between rich and poor which is already the 6th highest in the OECD. We beleive this is unacceptable and uncivilised”.

‘New Zealanders deserve better than this bankrput economic philosphy that only seems to make bankers, corporates and speculators richer’.
