Wellington: Rally And March Against National’s SOE Asset Sales!

Major political parties and others opposed to selling New Zealand’s key strategic assets – electricity generators Mighty River, Meridian and Genesis and Air New Zealand, and other strategic assets – are joining together in this march and rally tomorrow, Tuesday 7 February, in Wellington at lunchtime and a rally and speaches at Parliament grounds from 1 pm, before Parliament starts for the year.

“Selling these SOE strategic assets is economic madness, as they will inevitably end up in foreign ownership. We will become, even more, tenants in our own country” Dr Hugh Barr, NZ first spokesman in Wellington said.

“John Key and the National-led government have no mandate to sell our assets. It is economic treason. We intend to point this out”.

The march starts from Civic Square from midday. There will be speakers at Parliament from 1 pm, including Rt Hon Winston Peters, NZ First; Annette King, Labour; Green Party leader; Hone Harawira, Mana; Union reps; Occupy Wellington; and other groups opposed to John Key’s asset-stripping of NZ.
