Civic Square, noon-2 pm, 21 January 2017 ‘Love trumps Hate’ Festival in Wellington to mark US Presidential Inauguration
An occasion to celebrate democratic values and human rights will take place in Wellington to coincide with President-elect Trump’s inauguration on Saturday 21 January.
Co-organiser Mark Derby says the free family event in Civic Square from noon to 2pm
is the brainchild of Kiwis and ex-pat Americans living in Wellington who are deeply concerned about Trump’s public statements and policies, but who also want to celebrate core American democratic values of human rights, tolerance and diversity.‘
The people of the US, but also of New Zealand and the rest of the world, are entering
entirely unfamiliar political territory. Donald Trump’s inauguration as president on 21
January matters to everyone, whether you live in Wellington or Washington.
A women’s march (open to all), one of many peaceful demonstrations taking place
throughout the world to protest Trump’s attitudes and policies towards women, will
assemble at Parliament at 10am on the same day. The marchers will proceed up
Lambton Quay and Willis Street, to arrive at Civic Square in time for the opening of
the Love Trumps Hate festival.
‘This event is a chance to uphold democratic values, human rights, greater economic
equality, and the future of tortillas’, Mark says. The public is invited to bring along a
picnic and listen to live music and lively speakers, including US-born Kiwi Green MP
Julie Anne Genter, investigative journalist Nicky Hager and climate change activist
Aaron Packard.
