Drinking Liberally / the Rogers

Drinking Liberally is on again in Wellington next month - and this time they're teaming up with CAFCA and Gatt Watchdog to present the annual Roger Awards. The Roger is given for the worst transnational corporation operating in New Zealand, and in the past has been won by such upstanding corporate citizens as TransRail, Westpac Bank, and British American Tobacco. This years finalists include ANZ, BNZ, Infratil, Newmont, Rio Tinto Aluminium NZ, Rymans, Telecom, Transpacific and Westpac. The Business Round Table and Auckland City Council have been nominated for the accomplice award (the Prebble?)

When: 17;30, Thursday 11 March
Where: Southern Cross Bar, 39 Abel Smith Street, Wellington
