Something to go to in Auckland

Next Tuesday is the fourth anniversary of the US invasion of Iraq, and so this Saturday people around the world will be protesting against the continuing occupation and against a US attack on Iran. Global Peace and Justice Auckland is contributing to this effort, and have organised a demonstration for New Zealanders who oppose the war.

When: Saturday, 17 March, 12:00 noon
Where: Aotea Square

If you know of other events around the country, please post them in the comments.

Is there a march happening anywhere in support of the troops? I'd like to support the brave boys and girls fighting for freedom.

Anonymous, if your really want to support the troops why not be brave yourself.

Sign up for the army, learn to use a gun, then go over there and fight alongside them.

Hope the march goes well. Im getting rather tired of the whole Iraq debate, but I have to say that an illgal, immoral and unjustified invasion and occupation which is essentially open-ended in the tinderbox in the middle east is a greater threat to civilization that the right of parents to beat their kids.

If Bush invaded Iran from Iraq, we would be too obsessed with smacking to care..

What I meant is the *removal* of a parents right to beat their kids.

Sadly it's not feasible to have a march supporting the troops and doesn't support the war.

There's a popular school of thought that the best thing to do for the troops (and perhaps everyone else) is to bring them home where nobody's trying to kill them.

Sorry, Garry, I can't go and fight alongside the honourable soldiers who are willing to leave their jobs and families for many months at a time to fight for our freedom in an inhospitable desert full of strange men in tea towels. I'm flat footed. :-(
