"Open Arms not Fire Arms" A public meeting on the Weapons Industry and the Refugee Crisis
Peace Action Wellington warmly invites you to our public meeting at St.
John's Community Hall on Wednesday the 21st of October at 6pm.
In a world where countries and companies seek to profit from war it should
be no surprise that there is a tide of refugees fleeing war torn countries
such as Syria. While the government makes minor increases in our refugee
quota, it continues to support bombing campaigns and occupations in the
Middle East which only make the problem worse.
On November 17th and 18th Wellington city plays its own part in the cycle
of endless war by hosting 2015's annual Weapons Conference,
in which companies get a chance to network and promote themselves as
legitimate industries rather than the war profiteers that they are.
What has happened about the conference in the past?
What is happening about the upcoming conference?
How big is the weapons industry in Aotearoa?
What can we do about it?
Come along and share kai and conversation on these important topics.
