Rally Saturday 8 June – Wellington Te Whanganui-a-Tara

Facebook event https://www.facebook.com/events/987443623094495/

Thousands of job losses. Rolling attacks on Te Tiriti o Waitangi. No-cause evictions and selling off public housing. Cuts to our public transport, health and education. It is clear – this government has waged economic war on everyday people in Aotearoa.

Their approach isn’t new. Taking from our collective pool to line the pockets of private interests is a tried and true method of moving resources away from our communities and forcing more and more of the basics of life into businesses to be profited from. It puts profits over people, and our living world. For what?

We are calling on communities based in Te Wh?nganui-a-Tara to hit the streets and rally together Saturday 8th June to say NO to the cuts, and unify our voices for a future where everyone has what they need to thrive.

Through a vision for an Aotearoa that is fair and flourishing, where Te Tiriti o Waitangi is honoured properly, and for an economic system therefore that puts the wellbeing of people and our planet above corporate profit- we can unify, act, and build toward real change. Now is the time to act together.

The key kaupapa of this rally are:

Toit? Te Tiriti: Honour Te Tiriti o Waitangi
Stop the cuts to our public services
Stop the corporate takeover of our government

What: Public Rally – People over Profits: Stop the Cuts!
Where: Pukeahu War Memorial (marching to Te Papa)
When: 1pm, Saturday June 8th, 2024

This rally is for everyone who wants to see our people and planet put before private profits – all welcome!
