We’d like to share some fantastic news: the annual Weapons Expo (WEXPO) has been driven out of Wellington. For the past 20 years (with only one exception in 2016 when it came to Auckland) the expo has been in Wellington where it was close to the Ministry of Defence, HQ of the Defence Force and Parliament. For the past three years, we have been working really hard to put an end to this abomination. We’ve had three years of amazing human blockades made up of people like you (maybe even YOU!), and now we get tangible confirmation that our campaign is working, and…

WE ARE WINNING!

Peace Action Manawatū will coordinate opposition to the 2018 Weapons Expo. Yep, that’s right – we’re going to Palmerston North!

We want to keep the pressure on to shut down the WEXPO for good. We want to stop global weapons dealers like Lockheed Martin from profiting from killing, maiming and mutilating human beings. So stay tuned over the next three months for info and book yourself in for Halloween action this year. We know the dates – 31 October and 1 November 2018 – and the world needs you on the front lines.

In the meantime, get on facebook and love the crew who will be working hard over the next three months to facilitate community opposition and resistance: Peace Action Manawatū
