Rally & March To Support The Egyptian Uprising ~ 2pm, Saturday 5th February, Aotea Square, Auckland Central

[ … so who’s up for another rousing downtown Auckland round of

‘Spot The Spook’ ? ~ cell phone cameras & handycams will be welcome.   ]

Hundreds of thousands of protesters have taken to the streets of Egypt for the last week

calling on President Hosni Mubarak to step down after his 30 year autocratic rule.

The protesters have been met with extreme violence and police brutality,

over 300 have been killed and hundreds injured.

Mubarak is still refusing to listen to his people who marched in the millions on Tuesday demanding change,

instead; he has vowed to finish his term in office.

The Egyptian people have spoken and it is time for Mubarak to go.

In the face of the brutality of the Egyptian police

and the callousness of the US imperialists,

we need to urgently show our solidarity with the Egyptian people

and to demand that the US end its military support to its puppet dictators that,

without a doubt,

would not survive a minute without this support.

The revolutions in North Africa show that peace and freedom in the Middle East is possible

and that no superpower, US or Israel,

can stop a population that have decided to struggle without end for liberation.

This rally in Auckland will begin at Aotea Square and end with a march down Queen Street.

This is going to be a peaceful show of support for the Egyptian people

as well as a tribute to their efforts in demanding freedom and democracy.

This is also to demonstrate to John Key and the US Ambassador

that the people of New Zealand are on the side of democracy with the Egyptian people

and not with the dictator Hosni Mubarak.

[ … because & let’s face it ~ Mubarak‘s a complete -prick- ]

John Key openly supports the Mubarak regime,

the recipient of the second largest amount of US military aid after Israel,

which murders and tortures its own citizens.

Key’s position is an embarrassment to those who believe that democracy and freedom

are not platitudes

but values & ideals to fight for.

This march is supported by The Egyptian Community of Auckland,

The Unite Union,

Socialist Aotearoa,

Global Peace and Justice Auckland,

Students for Justice in Palestine,

Palestine Human Rights Campaign

and Keith Locke, Green MP.
