Warships are coming to Auckland – Let’s organise our resistance now!

Mobilise for this event.

GPJA's Blog

Kia ora friends & comrades,

In November 2016, a US warship will be returning to Auckland Harbour for the first time in 32 years for the 75th anniversary of the NZ Navy. At the same time, a weapons conference of 500+ delegates will converge at the Aotea Centre. Would you please get involved in organising a response and resistance to these events?

The weapons conference is sponsored by the world’s largest weapons manufacturers and others involved in wider military-prison-social control-surveillance industries. These include Lockheed Martin, Serco, General Dynamics, Sagem and Thales.

I have organised a space for an initial meeting: Unite Union, Western Springs Road on Thursday, May 12 at 7pm. Please put this in your diary & come if you can.

Would you please pass this invitation along to other good folks & organisations you know who are interested in this work?

Thank you & I hope to…

He looked at me like I was an idiot, then slowly…

Mars Retrograde 17 April – 29 June 2016

Peter Stockinger's Traditional Astrology Weblog

On 17 April, Mars will be stationary retrograde. On this day he will begin his apparent backwards movement through Sagittarius and parts of Scorpio.

We know that in mundane astrology, Mars represents the military, war, terror attacks, conflicts, strikes, fire and arson. Due to his apparent retrograde movement, we can assume that we will see a repeat performance of Mars’ actions during his first visit of Scorpio and Sagittarius, earlier this year. On 24 May, for example, Mars will be in 01* Sagittarius, conjunct his position at the last solar eclipse. Around this time, there will be a heightened risk of conflicts or terror attacks.

To make things even more difficult and volatile, at the time of retrogradation, Mars will also be conjunct the very important fixed star Antares. Ptolemy made the observation, that the bright stars in the front of the body of Scorpio have an effect similar to…
