There is to be a Hikoi of Protests against the Government’s Asset Sales agenda.

Starting from Waiora Marae on 24 April, the full itinerary is here, and a full list of the protest marches in towns along the way is here.

Every day has at least one town marching, with the big ones:
Tues 24 April: Kaitaia march 11am
Wed 25 April: Whangarei 3 pm
Sat 28 April: Auckland 3 pm at Britomart
Sun 29 April: Rotorua 3pm
Wed 2 May: Palmerston North 11 am
Thurs 3 May: Porirua 12 noon
Fri 4 May: Te Papa to Parliament

Following that there is a week of protests on various Government policies in Wellington:

Sat 5 May: Rally and Free Concert
Sun 6 May: Constitutional Wananga
Mon 7 May: Say no to Deep Sea Oil demo
Tues 8 May: Say no to Coal Mining demo
Wed 9 May: Say no to Welfare Reform demo
Thurs 10 May: Say no to Privatisation demo
Fri 11 May: Say yes to Constitutional Transformation demo

But the centrepiece before Wellington will be the big march up Queen St (Saturday 28 April, 3pm), organised by Aotearoa is Not For Sale.  They’re a non-political group, but they’ve got Labour, Green and Mana support for the march.

If you can make it: get there!

    I’ll be at Kaitaia march on Tues 24th.

    FNDC “NightMayor” Wayne Brown is a major mining supporter so we need to kick his butt, (if prime mincer ShonKey can say beneficiary new zealanders need a “kick in the pants” I can say the same about the Far North’s “King ’o conflicts of interest” developer tory mayor).
