Resisting the Arms Trade in Aotearoa/New Zealand

In November 2016, activists in Aoteara/New Zealand were on the streets to target a weapons expo in Auckland, and arms dealers found themselves locked out of the venue by the blockades. You can read more about their actions on their blog, and in Auckland Peace Action’s report “Peace through Justice”. In January 2017, Eliza Egret and Tom Anderson – anti-militarist writers from Shoal Collective – met up with Sean and Laura from Peace Action Wellington (PAW) in Aotearoa/New Zealand and PAW explained the tactics that they have used to confront the arms trade. This interview is the first of two that will be published about anti-militarism in Aotearoa.

Campaigners disrupt arms dealers dinner

While this kind of schmoozing is an almost weekly affair, no event typifies the close relationship between politicans and the arms trade more than the annual dinner of the arms industry association, the Aerospace, Defence, Security and Space (ADS) Group, which was held on Tuesday night.
