New Plymouth Girls' High School Vape Policy

Dear Stella Bond (Acting Principal), Currently, at New Plymouth Girls' High School there is no policy against students vaping on school grounds. This is an issue because vaping with high levels of nicotine has been proven to negatively affect the human body and can lead to addiction. Young people are at risk of being peer pressured by others to participate in this and as their brains are not yet fully developed they are unlikely to consider the longterm effects of vaping.

TE WIWI NĀTI HAPŪ CLUSTER PETITION: THE ROAD

 Our road from and between the Kaiinanga Hill to the end of the Tikapa and Awanui Roads is often unsafe and inaccessible, especially in the wet months.   Whānau still live in that valley, and people travel in and out daily for work, for school, or to visit other whānau. We are often not able to attend our marae hui. The Ambulance and Fire Services often can't attend emergencies there.   We are asking that the Gisborne District Council repair the road.  No more short-term patch-ups.   We need our

NO! To Masks in Schools

I WON'T SEND MY CHILD TO SCHOOL IN A MASK! With the announcement today of children in grades 4 and up having to wear masks all day, comes a dilemma parents should not be faced with. Do I send my child back to school to wear a mask all day?  Homeschooling and Private School are getting traction but that doesn't solve the problem or address the lack of common sense this decision has. Private schools won't be implementing masks, so if you have money your child is free to breathe. If you don't have

Preserve the Eskdale Park in the Esk Valley Napier

Ban all mink farming in Latvia

As i recently stumbled upon an article on facebook about where false lashes were made, and as someone who has purchased a fair amount i researched more into mink farms only to find out that "cruelty free" Mink lashes are NOT AT ALL "cruelty free" I watched a short youtube clip of an undercover activist that worked in the mink farms in Latvia and it had shown around hundreds of helpless minks all cramped in dirty cages being tortured and poorly treated. The activist had also mentioned that 8/10 m

Retain STV (Single Transferrable Vote) as the voting system for Dunedin City Council Mayoral and Councillor Elections

First up...If you're going to share this on Facebook PLEASE sign it too - Thanks! A vocal minority, unhappy that their choice for mayor did not get elected, wish to push through a change back to an FPP (first past the post) system, in a thinly veiled attempt to get Dunedin's most divisive councillor in modern times elected as a minority mayor! A petition has been created by their supporters and it felt appropriate to 'balance the scales' Why FPP is undemocratic, and STV is a much better system:

The Removal of The GST Tax on Sanitary Products

Everyday women are being forced to pay tax sanitary products which are essential items that we need but is still being treated as a luxury good.

On average, a women "....has her perio

We demand that St Martin-in-the-Fields reverse outrageous decision to cast out loyal musicians

For 30 years our orchestras and choirs have brought joy to thousands of people and raised millions of pounds to support the work of St Martin-in-the-Fields and the homeless.
