Opposition to ANZUS

The Wellington Committee on Vietnam organised opposition to the recent ANZUS meeting in Wellington with a lunch hour picket (pictured) on each of the two days of the meeting (February 26 & 27) and a poster parade through the city centre on the previous Friday night (February 22).

The ANZUS Treaty which links New Zealand and Australia with the United States is this countries major military alliance. Its overall objective is to strengthen the relationships between the Governments at both the political and military levels." From its very beginning it has served as a channel through which the US can pass orden to NZ and Australia to make them better servants of America's aggressive policies in Asia and the Pacific and it is still effectively serving this role despite some apparent changes in New Zealand foreign policy since the election of the Labour Government.
