• End all NZ Super Fund Investments in Winter Crop Grazing
    Our nation’s global reputation relies on a government that puts the health of its environment and people's wellbeing first. Spending millions of dollars from the nation’s pension fund on farms that practice Winter Crop Grazing is one of the most unethical choices the Superannuation investment fund has EVER made! In contrast to traditional grazing, winter crop grazing restricts animals to small patches of land for long periods, which quickly turn into mud. This practice causes freshwater pollution, animal suffering and soil degradation. Freshwater pollution: Nitrate leaches into our aquifers at over 10 times the rate of normal grazing, destroying groundwater for future use and remaining for hundreds of years. Phosphate- and pathogen-rich effluent runs off into streams, rivers, lakes and estuaries, making them un-swimmable, and killing ecosystems. Animal suffering: The land these animals are grazed on turns to mud, which leaves animals with nowhere dry to rest and give birth. They often end up licking mud to get water. Soil degradation: Winter crop grazing destroys the soil and releases tonnes of stored carbon into the atmosphere, accelerating climate breakdown. This practice is heavily dependant on pesticides, herbicides and synthetic fertilisers which are causing severe decline in biodiversity and human health. This is no way to be ‘investing for the next generation’. Please sign and share this petition with your networks Email the minister responsible: Hon Grant Robertson, Minister of Finance. g.robertson@ministers.govt.nz Tell him to; Stop investing any of the New Zealand Super Fund into farms that are winter crop grazing, divest from any that continue, and find sustainable alternatives immediately!

  • Add Clean Food to the Green New Deal
    The use of traditional animal agriculture produces significant amounts of greenhouse gases, pollutes our oceans, and uses up copious amounts of land, water, and energy. It involves food-borne disease, antibiotics, chemicals and feces. It is also inherently cruel, and it simply does not work towards a cleaner, more sustainable, and more peaceful future. The steps we are calling for WILL work towards that future. There are not many politicians we believe would stick their necks out on the line for this, but we hope that Rep. Ocasio-Cortez is one that will. Please sign this petition and show Rep. Ocasio-Cortez that this is the direction the future is heading in and we will not stop until it is fulfilled.

  • Save the house and land at Hobsonville Point! (Before it's too late:)
    This is important to me because I care about the environment and I want it to remain for many years to come. We must act NOW! When the last tree is cut down, and the seas all dried up, man will realise that he CANNOT EAT MONEY.

  • Fund a cleanup of the Fox River landfill breach, and the relocation of other vulnerable dumps
    Big corporations like Coca Cola continue to produce and sell vast quantities of throwaway plastic that ends up in the environment, choking marine life, polluting land and rivers and endangering wildlife and people's health. It's time they started paying the real price.

  • Protect Aotea from marine dumping
    In February 2019, the Environment Protection Authority gave Coastal Resources Ltd (CRL) permission to increase the amount of sediment it dumps from 50,000 cubic metres to 250,000 cubic metres annually for 35 years, just 25 km of the east coast of Great Barrier Island. Kelly Klink, of iwi Ngāti Rehua-Ngātiwai ki Aotea and the Society for the Protection of Aotea Community & Ecology have lodged appeals against the resource consent in the High Court. Ngati Rehua Ngatiwai ki Aotea have a significant and an undeniable interest within the area - holding mana whenua and mana moana. Kelly states that ‘the proposed activity will have an irreversible impact on our moana’ and further ‘the harm will be irreparable to the wairua and mauri of Moana nui o Toi, adversely affecting the marine environment upon which our iwi have relied on mai rano’. The approved consent is a 500 % increase from the current consent! This will have significant negative impacts to the marine environment (for example, substrate smothering, heavy metal contamination, water quality degradation, effect of sounds on marine life such as whales, changes in marine life behavioural patterns, increased bio-security risks). The community of Aotea, need your help to support the expensive legal costs involved in a High Court appeal. If you can, make a donation. We face a long game with lots of legal costs and are really relying on the financial support of New Zealanders who love Aotea and want to see a better future for our stunning oceans and our unique island. If you can please make a donation through direct debit to Protect Aotea bank account, 03-0296-0454684-000 Or donate through www.givealittle.co.nz and search Protect Aotea For more information on the consent application please refer: https://www.epa.govt.nz/public-consultations/decided/coastal-resources-limited/

  • Ban Synthetic Nitrogen Fertiliser: Gisborne District Council
    Synthetic Nitrogen fertiliser props up industrial dairying. It is used to grow too much grass for too many cows, polluting our rivers and warming the climate. But we don’t need it. There is a better way to farm and New Zealand can lead the world in practising it. Together, we can move towards regenerative farming. A way of farming that works with nature, not against it. But to do that, we need to get rid of the enablers of the old, destructive system. We need to ban synthetic nitrogen fertiliser.
