USS Sampson on the way to New Zealand: We don’t want it, and we don’t need it.

Community opposition to the November visit of US Warship USS Sampson is growing fast.

There will be an on water flotilla to oppose the visit of the US warship and any other navies that are coming.

This warship visit is about preparing New Zealand for war. The naval war training exercises in the Hauraki Gulf are the real reason for this US warship visit. Letting this US warship in is an admission that John Key’s government is happy to be part of US wars across the world. The warship visit is happening in conjunction with a weapons expo showcasing companies including Lockheed Martin, the world’s largest arms dealer. The weapons business benefits a few at the expense of the lives of millions around the planet.

We don’t want it, and we don’t need it. Auckland Peace Action
