aotearoa / pacific islands / imperialism / war / news report Monday February 19, 2007 13:59 by Barrie
On 15th February Australian Prime Minister John Howard visited New Zealand/Aotearoa to confer with his local counter-part, Helen Clark.

From the moment of his arrival Howard was met by anarchist, socialist and other anti-Iraq war protestors. A small contingent protested at the airport, followed by approximately 50 protestors who later assembled outside Premier House, where the two Prime Ministers met to discuss issues including their continued support for the war in Iraq.

During the protest, smoke bombs were thrown at police lines, a businessman had his car mildly damaged after attempting to ram the protestors and three demonstrators were arrested.

From 1984 onwards, Aotearoa/New Zealand experienced one of the most brutal impositions of neoliberalism seen in the "advanced" capitalist world. Most commentators claimed that working class people were passive in the face of a devastating assault by capital and the state. This pamphlet argues otherwise. Focussing upon the 1990s, I outline the massive demonstrations, strikes, occupations and other working class activity against the further imposition of neoliberal reform. I look at three major movements against neoliberalism in order to learn from their successes and defeats: the 1991 general strike that wasn't; the movement against the benefit cuts of 1991; and the land occupations movement by Maori in the mid 1990s. read full story / add a comment

The story of the I.W.W. in Aotearoa cannot be told without considering the wider labour movement. The Wobblies weren't a small sectarian group isolated from the tumultuous events of those times. Often they were at the centre, and the leading spirit within the militant workers movement. read full story / add a comment

hobbit.jpg imageBehind the spectacle of The Hobbit 10:52 Thu 30 Sep by Aotearoa Workers Solidarity Movement 0 comments

One of the most popular products exported from New Zealand has been the atmospheric Lord of the Rings films. They invoke images of a far off land called Middle Earth complete with massive mountains, panoramic landscapes, and furry wee Hobbits fighting the evil Dark Lord. The next film based in the same fantasy world, The Hobbit, is to be shot in NZ next year. NZ Actors Equity, the union for actors in NZ, has called upon international actors unions to black the film production. The International Federation of Actors have agreed, and so unions like the Canadian Actors Equity, US Actors Equity, the Screen Actors Guild, UK Actors Equity, the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists, the Media, Entertainment & Arts Alliance (MEAA, Australia) and the Alliance of Canadian Cinema, Television and Radio have boycotted the film.

textNew Zealand Workers Set To Face More Attacks 18:19 Mon 26 Jul by AWSM 0 comments

The National Government recently announced a series of new attacks on workers across New Zealand. The raft of proposed changes to the anti-worker Employment Relations Act (ERA, brought in by the previous Labour Government in 2000) and the Holidays Act will serve to further cut job security, wages and conditions for hundreds of thousands of workers in both the public and private sectors.

Over the weekend of June 5-6th, the Aotearoa Workers Solidarity Movement held its 3rd national conference since it was founded in October 2008. Almost all members were able to attend, meaning people from 5 different regions across the country were present, at the fantastic venue of the Wellington People's Centre. The weekend was spent reflecting on and discussing our activity over the previous 12 months, making some changes to our core politics (as written in our Aims & Principles) and how we work (detailed in our Constitution) and coming up with plans for the next 12 months, plus some longer term thinking as well.

imageOrigin of the Housing Crisis In Aotearoa/New Zealand Sep 20 by Kaye Richards 0 comments

This article explores a point of historical change during which housing policy shifted in Aotearoa/New Zealand. It looks at the actions of the National government in 1991 in the context of the neo-liberal ideology that was heavily influencing the government at the time and their consequences in terms of poverty levels and inequalities in the housing market in the 1990’s and beyond. I begin with a brief overview of the history of state housing policies and intervention in the housing market. What follows are examples of how successive policies effected people on the receiving end of them.
