Porirua Launch of Tapatahi: Coalition for a People’s Aotearoa

Here is an invitation to take part in the national launch of Tapatahi: Coalition for a People’s Aotearoa.

This is a citizens’ coalition of the organisations working to bring in the changes Aotearoa needs NOW to tackle inequality, colonial injustice and climate and ecosystem breakdown.

Nāu te rourou, nāku te rourou, ka ora ai te taiao me te iwi
With our collective contributions, the environment and the people will thrive

There are face to face meetings in 3 venues (Tāmaki Makaurau, Porirua and Ōtautahi), with speakers in each venue shared via video link, and a chance to connect with people in your area.

The Porirua meeting is on SUNDAY, JUNE 25, 2023 AT 2 PM – 5:45 PM

In Porirua, meet at the Oasis Community Café, Shop 19 Waitangirua Mall  (at the back of all the shops – look for the bright coloured mural Cafe entrance)

The Cafe will open at 2pm and the event will begin with a Mihi Whakatau at 2:15, and discussion of climate issues arising for Ngati Toa.
