After the success of the meetings about the super-city in Waitakere and Manakau yesterday, here are a few more of interest in date order. We will issue reminders when they are due.
From the notice on the Grassroots Labour site about a public meeting in Waitakere.
|Time||April 27, 2009 from 8pm (now correct time)|
|Location||Kelston Community Centre|
|Street||Cnr. Great North and Awaroa Roads.|
|Event Type||public, meeting., all, welcome.|
|Organized By||Chris Carter, David Cunliffe and Lynne Pillay|
|What will happen to Waitakere City with the changes to local governance in the Auckland region? Your city, your say!|
Drinking Liberally Auckland has an advance notice.
|Speaker||Mayor Len Brown of Manakau|
|Topic||Drinking Liberally Auckland – the future of Auckland governance.|
|When||7pm, Wednesday 29 April|
|Where||London Bar – corner Queen and Victoria Streets, Auckland CBD|
|Who||you and like-minded left-wingers. All welcome.|
|This month’s speaker is Mayor Len Brown talking about the opportunities and issues arising out of the Government’s proposal for restructuring governance in Auckland.
Len Brown is the current mayor of Manukau and is out-and-about talking and listening to Aucklanders’ opinions on the proposed changes and their views on the future of our region.
This will be an interesting chance to hear some thoughts on the revolution happening in Auckland from one of our region’s leaders.

|On May 25 there will be a hikoi where Aucklander’s from all persuasions can join us to say out loud that this proposal is flawed and will become flawed law if passed. This is the anniversary of the Bastion Point evictions.|
Feed me links to any other meetings about the super-city fiasco, and we’ll get them posted.
Thanks to Greg Presland for the evocative post title.
