Photos: Hikoi and meatworkers solidarity

The hikoi is showing that tangata whenua are in the forefront of the struggle against asset sales and privatisation. One aspect of the hikoi is the unity between the locked-out meatworkers (employed by Talleys-AFFCO) and others who are opposed to asset-sales and privatisation. This was apparent in the north, where workers employed at the Moerewa plant joined in large numbers. Then again in the Waikato workers from the Horotiu plant have played an important role and received support and acknowledgement from the hikoi. The Talleys-AFFCO workers are now in the ninth week of the lockout.
