Mike Treen speaks in Nelson

Tuesday 25th September 2018

Back from the international Freedom Flotilla determined to break Israel’s illegal blockade of Gaza, battered and bruised Unite Union leader Mike Treen says ‘I have a few stories to tell!’

Mike has spoken of his experience in Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch, Whangarei and Hamilton. He exposes the brutality experienced by the recent Freedom Gaza Flotilla at the hands of the Israeli military. He received a standing ovation from these gatherings for his role “on behalf of New Zealand” as one among the 22 people seized illegally during the hijacking of the Al Awda in international waters.
