Together we pushed for it, and we got it!

New Zealand Police are scrapping the increased use of guns by police in New Zealand. This is following a massive push from the community following the murder of George Floyd.

This decision today reinforces the need for people to make their voices heard in order to create an Aotearoa free of discrimination. 

Join Green Party Co-leader Marama Davidson and Green MP Golriz Ghahraman this Thursday as they continue the discussion about #BlackLivesMatter and how we can truly build healthy and thriving communities here in Aotearoa.

We’ll be joined by a fantastic panel of speakers including: 

  • Awatea Mita (Restorative Practices Aotearoa and prisoner rights advocate) 
  • Sonya Renee Taylor (Founder and Radical Executive Officer, The Body is Not An Apology) 

We'll be using Zoom webinar and livestreaming to Facebook. Please RSVP to receive the Zoom details for the event.
