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
