The local paper here in Nelson has advertised my meeting for “7.pm” rather than 7.30pm.
(Maybe I’ll warm up the early arrivals with my after-dinner act of performing silly poems and songs — which I’d actually much rather be doing than talking about the uncomfortable subject of race relations!)
Another snag is that my friend who was supposed to be delivering promotional leaflets for the meeting has been detained in Wellington.
So please email all your Nelson friends and encourage them to come tonight — 7.30pm at the Sports Hall, Nelson Suburban Club.
On the positive side, Nelson Grey Power are apparently getting behind the meeting, so let’s hope their members provide a show of force.
Below is the promo and handout if any of you brave Nelsonians feel like handing them out downtown today.
Pages 1 & 2 are the promo. Pages 2 & 3 are the handout about the Nelson museum travesty.
(More on that in another post, as I visited yesterday and now have photographic evidence of the appalling history-twisting.)
There’s a lot more evidence where this came from. Come along tonight and see it.
Oh and please leave all bison securely tethered outside.
