Time For Independence From A Crumbling US Empire - Pacific Media Centre

The speech Murray Horton delivered at AUT in Auckland on 7 April 2017, hosted by the Pacific Media Centre (headed by David Robie). It served to introduce CAFCA's new campaign, the Aotearoa Independence Movement (AIM) and to kick around some ideas of what that might involve. A lot of those ideas represent Murray Horton's personal opinions only.

This Auckland speech did not mark the launch of AIM. Murray Horton was going to Auckland anyway to speak at the Roger Award event the night before, and David Robie invited him to speak at AUT (as he has done before, over many years). It was too good an opportunity to pass up and gave Murray the chance to explore some of what this campaign might involve.
