Every year, the Christchurch based Anti Bases Campaign organises a protest weekend against the US satellite tracking station at Waihopai near Blenheim.
If you’re keen to go, the trip will include;
Public Meeting in Blenheim on Friday evening where Nicky Hagar of the Hollow men fame will speak. Camping at a DOC camp ground near the base. Protest in Blenheim on Saturday morning and at the base in early afternoon. Return to Auckland on Sunday with a possible brief side trip to protest at the Tangimoana base just off the main road near Palmerston North.
Those attending the Radical Youth gathering in Auckland this weekend, must be gutted that they’re missing out.
