Fightback is endorsing the Aotearoa Not for Sale national day of action against asset sales, on April 27th 2013. The day of action has already been endorsed by the Council of Trade Unions, Unions Auckland, Unite, the Mana Movement, Occupy and Socialist Aotearoa among others.
“The government is set on asset sales despite opposition from 80% of the general population, and 90% of tangata whenua,” says Fightback member Ian Anderson. “We cannot take this passively, or vote and expect capitalist parties to represent us. We must fight in the streets, in workplaces and communities, to take control of assets.” Fightback supports full nationalisation of assets under community control.
