Protest - Skyhawks to Indonesia

Forwarded on behalf of ETIC - 12 May 1999

This is very much in great haste but I need to let you know of plans afoot for a demonstration at Woodbourne , Blenheim on Sunday 23 May at 10-30 am

Aim to protest at the export of refurbished Skyhawk jets to Indonesia. The jets belong to the Indonesian Air Force. They have been undergoing their makeover at the SAfe Air firm for several months now and are due to be flight tested from 19 May according to our information.

A very good focus for an expression of anger at both Safe Air and the Govt which has allowed this to happen. Also of course to highlight our concerns about the deteriorating situation in ET and lack of any reasonable response from our Govt. It is possible that this demonstration will catch the interest of the national media. I am planning to go down as is Jorge.

Norm and Alison Fletcher are the local organisers : PH 03-5737226

I hope that there might be a contingent from Ch-Ch Wgton ???

NOTE - WELLINGTON PEOPLE ! Joe Buchanan will co-ordinate the Wellington 'contingent', please contact him on tel (04) 385 7545, Feedback please.
