Socialist Aotearoa, anarchists and Muslims targeted Auckland company Rakon last Friday-allegedly for supplying arms components used by the Israel Defence Force.
From Socialist Aotearoa
One hundred and fifty people marched into the industrial estates of South Auckland today to confront Rakon, a New Zealand company that manufactures the crystal oscillators used in Israeli bombs. A highly charged and passionate mobilisation faced down private security guards and a police force that acted like an army, succeeding in launching paint bombs that splattered in blood red explosions on Rakon’s corporate cream front.
The warning to Rakon is clear. Divest from your military contracts, or you will face repeated actions until you stop. The example of the Raytheon direct actions in the Irish city of Derry point the way to militant, direct action resistance of the war machine that hides in our industrial estates.
Catholic Worker anarchist Tyler Culpepper got himself arrested for his paintbrush vandalism.
