Mike Treen is coming to Christchurch & Wellington

12 Aug

Just back from the international Freedom Flotilla determined to break Israel’s illegal blockade of Gaza – hijacked, kidnapped, battered, bruised, tasered, shackled, imprisoned, and deported by Israeli forces, union leader Mike Treen says:  ‘I have a few stories to tell!’

On Monday 13 August at 7:30pm Mike will address a public meeting in at Christchurch’s ‘Cardboard Cathedral’ in Latimer Square. Not to be missed! Free entry – donations welcome.

Unite Union leader & veteran human rights defender, Mike Treen, spoke to a packed-out event in Auckland last week, describing the brutality experienced by the recent Freedom Gaza Flotilla at the hands of the lawless Israeli military. He received a standing ovation from the gathering for his role “on behalf of New Zealand” among the 22 people seized illegally during the hijacking of the Al Awda by the Israelis in international waters – an outrageous crime of piracy that continues to be ignored by world leaders and our own government, just like they continue to ignore Israel’s harsh colonial occupation of Palestine.

Events in Hamilton and Whangarei are planned to follow Mike’s Christchurch talk [TBC]. If you would like to host a meeting with Mike in your town, send an email to office@kiaoragaza.net with proposed dates.



Friday 17 August at 6pm at PSA House,

11 Aurora Terrace, Wellington.

Free entry – donations welcome.
