On 25 August we sent an email to the NZ Minister of Foreign Affairs, Winston Peters, essentially similar to those already emailed to Jacinda Ardern and Ron Markconcerning the Ministry of Defence proposal to purchase $9 million-worth of military equipment from Israel, and asking that the order be cancelled. The responses from Jacinda Ardern’s Office and Ron Mark can be seen in previous blogs. 

Our emails closed with a summary requesting that they clarify the New Zealand Government’s position regarding: 

■ Israel’s violations of international humanitarian law 

■ The proposal that New Zealand should contribute, through trade, to the profitability of the Israeli military 

and asking: 

■ In view of the evidence presented [in our emails] and in greater detail online,is the NZ Government willing to declare its unequivocal support for international law with regard to the security and human rights of the Palestinian people living under alien military Occupation? Read more
