Only 12 sleeps to go. The Trotskyists must be getting sooooo… excited. Socialist Worker and their front group RAM must be like little elves on P-plastering Auckland with posters advertising their idol, “Gorgeous George“.

Right-wing Aussie preachers ‘stir up racist bigotry’ in NZ
Voices of Peace meetings in Auckland on 27-28 July, to be addressed by left-wing British MP George Galloway, will counter the sudden rise of organised Islamophobia in New Zealand. The meetings are being organised by RAM, the Residents Action Movement.
“A prime catalyst for the Voices of Peace meetings is the Mosques & Miracles tour being organised in New Zealand around the same time to spread the message of Islamophobia,” said RAM organiser Grant Morgan. “The Mosques & Miracles tour has been inspired by the 400-page book of the same name written by Australian right-wing Baptist pastor Stuart Robinson.”
“Mr Robinson’s ‘Mosques & Miracles’ book calls for the ‘mother of all ‘spiritual wars’ to be fought against ‘evil’ Islam, which represents the ‘anti-Christ’ and is ‘on the march’ to destroy our liberties and freedoms by waging war on all non-Muslims until they ‘submit’ or are enslaved or killed,” said Grant Morgan. “Mr Robinson will also be one of the keynote speakers at the Mosques & Miracles conferences. He will be joined by a group of other extreme right evangelical Christian preachers from Australia.”
“By shaping their New Zealand conferences around Mr Robinson’s Islamophobic book, the Mosques & Miracles ideologues from Australia will be stirring up racist bigotry against other human beings simply because they follow a different faith and often originate from a different part of the planet.”
“RAM asks: Why are the Mosques & Miralces meetings closed to the public, except for one short session? If their message was wholesome, why would they try to hide it from scrutiny by the public and the media? Are they attempting to secretly recruit an Islamophobic cadre here in New Zealand as a necessary first step to building a political movement against Muslim immigrants?”
“The vast majority of New Zealanders reject their sectarian message of division and hate between communities in this country. That is why RAM is organising the positive alternative of Voices of Peace. We are aiming for broad unity around the values of social inclusion and equal rights for every religious believer and non-believer,” said Grant Morgan.
“Our call will be amplified by having George Galloway on our Voices of Peace platform. Mr Galloway, a British MP who is world famous as an advocate of social justice and world peace, will be showing how the roots of Islamophobia are to be found in the US war in Iraq.”
Socialist Worker is allied to the British . They are both members of an alliance of Trotskyist parties known as the .

Socialist Worker on its own is a minor annoyance.
As part of an international Trotskyist organisation, on the planet, it becomes a significant security risk.
