This is a heads up for a Day of Action in communities across Aotearoa on 10th September: ‘Fight Corporate Control: Reclaim Aotearoa’
Multinational corporations are being given rights and advantages over citizens and the local economy in many different ways. We need to join with others to connect the dots between the struggles against corporate control.
We will join together, across allied networks and movements, to fight against governments pushing the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPPA) and other pro-corporate treaties; multinational tax evasion and tax havens; fossil fuels, deep sea oil drilling and geo-engineering; undermining te Tiriti; political corruption and undermining of sovereignty; privatisation and casualisation of labour; GE and toxic chemicals; militarisation and mass surveillance; and the takeover NZ homes, freshwater, land and other natural resources.
Join with the local TPPA campaign in your community to plan a day of action. Each local coalition will have specific issues to highlight for the Day of Action, and there will be common themes, materials and website page across all the events.
The Day of Action is a protest, but also an affirmation of reclaiming democracy. We will highlight and celebrate the positive alternatives in communities in Aotearoa – through organics, permaculture, community gardens; local renewable energy, EVs, divestment from fossil fuels; campaigns for better public transport and cycling; UBI, community finance, time banking; refugee support groups; etc.
