Women Say NO to War
International Women's Day 2013: come along to add your voice to the call of women around the world who are saying NO to war and YES to peace.
Wellington, Thursday, 7 March: join us from 5.30pm to 6pm, at the NZ armed forces HQ, corner Aitken and Mulgrave Streets
Auckland, Friday, 8 March: join us from 5.30pm to 6pm, at the Army HQ, 204 to 234 Great North Road
The theme this year is alternatives to military spending, eg, ~ welfare not warfare ~ education not militarisation ~ Please wear black if you can, and bring black streamers / ribbons / wool, photos, messages, cardboard or paper peace doves to decorate the military HQ, something to make a noise with - pot and spoon, drum, your voice - during the time of anger, flowers or candles to leave there during the time of mourning, and a poem or reading to share during the time of reflection ... and your own banner or placard if you wish. All women and children welcome.
