Golriz Ghahraman is a New Zealand Green Party Member of Parliament.

Protests planned against Nigel Farage

A protest is set to take place outside the venue where UK politician Nigel Farage will speak in September 2018.

Tamaki Anti-Fascist Action says it will hold a "peaceful anti-racism public demonstration" outside the Pullman Hotel and speakers will include Green MP Golriz Ghahraman.

Mr Farage is the former leader of the pro-Brexit political party UKIP. He quit as leader after the UK voted to leave the European Union in mid-2016.

Pacific Panthers member Te Ao Pritchard, South Auckland Muslim Association member Azad Khan, a Tāmaki Makaurau Anarchists member, a Dayenu - Jews Against the Occupation member are also set to speak at the protest.

Tamaki Anti-Fascist Action spokesperson Katjoesja Buissink said: "We are taking action because Farage's anti-Semitic, Islamophobic and misogynist views are repugnant and indefensible. His scapegoating of vulnerable communities is reprehensible.

"The real problems rest with the vast and grotesque levels of global inequality caused by capitalist exploitation, ongoing colonialism and endless wars of aggression. He doesn't want to do anything about those things, instead he uses 'divide and rule' tactics to stir up hatred and fear among the white working and middle class."[1]
