National day of action against asset sales

The government is currently trying to sell Mighty River Power, which we all own, to its rich mates, effectively transferring public wealth into the private pockets of its cronies. Such wealth transfer is fundamentally what privatisation is all about. This Saturday is your opportunity to speak out against it. The Keep Our Assets coalition have organised a national day of action against asset sales, with events in Auckland, Hamilton, Tauranga, Napier, Wellington, Hanmer (yes, really), Christchurch, and Dunedin (details on the page linked above). If you oppose asset sales, then please turn out and say so.
