Listed below are a list of events across New Zealand (and globally) that celebrate the 30th Anniversary of New Zealand’s Nuclear Free Zone Act. Please click on the event to find out further details.
The Depot Artspace, 28 Clarence Street, Devonport, Auckland
27 May – 14 June
Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom (WILPF) and the Devonport Peace Group are delighted to present an exhibition of historic photographs from Gil Hanly and John Miller, two eminent artists who have spent many years recording the important events in our social history, particularly peace activities.
In June 1987 the Nuclear Free Zone, Disarmament and Arms Control Act, the legislation making Aotearoa New Zealand a nuclear-free zone, was passed. Devonport led the way in 1981 with a declaration by the Borough Council. Many other local councils followed that example.
Devonport is a very appropriate place to celebrate this 30th anniversary, which has become an expression of our national identity.
