USA: Love Not Hate (AKL edition)
Take action against US immigration fascism
When: Friday, 5pm
Where: US Embassy, 23 Custom Street, Auckland
Facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/392262337960150/
We have to do something, we have to stand up and show that what is happening in the USA is not something we support, but something we abhor. We plan to meet, as a community, including children, outside the US consulate in AKL, to make it clear that we support the Families Belong Together campaign.
All welcome. This is a child-friendly event, with a “We Are So Disappointed In You, USA” vibe, so please keep that in mind. There will be chalking, singing, speeches and flowers. If you are able to bring an LED candle that would be great.
Speakers include Tracey Barnett, Ricardo Menendez March, Kingi Snelgar, and Meg de Ronde. Thanks to the organisation of Mums 4 Refugees, and support from Amnesty International NZ.
There are other events happening outside the US consulate on this issue too, we encourage you to head along as well/instead:
– 12noon Friday 22nd – rally For The Children
– 12noon Saturday 23rd – protest No Human is Illegal
