• TPPA Petition to the Bay of Plenty Councils
    The mainstream media of New Zealand are not informing our public of the dire consequences of this 'so-called' trade agreement, or questioning why it is being negotiated secretly in collaboration with foreign corporate investors. So it falls upon us to inform our communities, to pressure our government for full disclosure, and to insist upon our democratic right to decide if this Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement will be the signing away of our future. Based upon the latest Wikileaks documents, we understand that signing the TPPA in it's current form will open New Zealand up to the following: * Foreign investors dictating our domestic laws * Inflated pricing of patented medicines * Weak or non-existent GMO food labelling * Overriding of Te Tiriti o Waitangi * Pushing more of our kiwi jobs overseas * Undermining our environmental protections * Unfettered mining, drilling and fracking * Escalation of our national financial crises * Irreversible sellouts of more kiwi assets * Voidance of our “buy kiwi made” policy * Erosion of privacy and internet freedoms * Corporate takeover of our Kiwi way of life We stand united with our communities against the signing away of our future and call upon our local councils to stand united with us!

  • RESTORE SELWYN CLARKE'S VETERAN'S PENSION
    Selwyn Clarke is a WWII veteran who fought with the 28th Maori Battalion against fascist governments bent on world domination. In December 2015 the New Zealand government vindictively cut his Veteran's Pension because he refused to appear before its courts after he was trespassed for peacefully repossessing his own land. We believe Selwyn ought to be able to hold and exercise the rights to: 1. Peacefully protest without fear of retribution from government. 2. Receive his Veteran's Pension. He fought against fascism for our rights, now it's our turn to fight for his.

  • NO TOXIC MINING IN PUHIPUHI, WHAKAPARA
    WATER !!! Our life force. Clean Water is our right to Survival !!! The effects of Toxic Hard Rock Mining and Drilling will upset an already natural imbalance with the further distribution of Mercury that is already there. The level of toxins and waste from mining will be catastrophic to the neighbouring areas, rivers, harbours and sea. It is unjustifiable to risk health, environmental, ecosystem devastation along with farming and crop growing. The effects of toxic waste are already being experienced and the damage is irreversible and life threatening. For generations people have pumped water from springs and bores to drink and still do drink from springs and bores. Toxic Mining eliminates all use of water which is a necessary life support for all living beings. We ask that the Whangarei District Council and the Northland Regional Council advocates for the people and communities they serve by making a public statement of opposition to Toxic Mining in Puhipuhi and they express their opposition generally and on any occasion they are consulted on this topic. We need to take real action now and say No to Toxic Mining.
