The Labour History Project is pleased to be taking part in an Anzac Day event organised by The Art Not War Collective as part of the Remember the Peacemakers exhibition at Thistle Hall, Wellington, 20 April to 3 May 2015.
An event coming up in Wellington should be of interest to LHP members in Wellington: “My Country Right or Wrong?” An Aro Valley Contribution to the World War One Commemorations.
For the second time, the Labour History Project is running an essay competition to inspire debate on alternative futures and invites progressive New Zealanders of all ages to offer visions and strategies that would enable a future world where inequality is eradicated.
The 100th anniversary of Anzac Day is fast approaching and to provide an alternative perspective to the government’s glorification of World War One Marama Mayrick and Ryan Bodman have produced a poster series showcasing opposition to the conflict.
There are two WSA (NZ) events coming up soon in Auckland and Wellington, for women to consider war and peace, the WW1 commemorations and our place in history.
