THIS PRESENTATION: • Highlights the motion of censure against the Israeli Union of Social Workers passed by the IFSW General Meeting on Monday • Is not a self-righteous, moralistic judgement against Israeli social workers and their organisation • Is an invitation for Israeli social workers to join a journey that I and my pākeha social work colleagues have had to walk on relating to advancing justice for our indigenous Maori peoples in Aotearoa New Zealand • Is a personal statement from me, not claiming to speak on behalf of my professional association or anyone else.
