State highway 35 users against the speed restrictions that come into force on the 8th September 2020.

We are opposed to the permanent speed restrictions, from Pouawa to Okitu (100km/hr down to 80km/h), and the seasonal speed limit being reduced to 60km/hr. We want the speed limit left at the current level, instead other safety measures should be looked at. We believe that the speed reductions will further isolate the East Coast communitys, and only add to fatigue for all road users.

Keep our kiwi right to sustainably harvest wild food

Below is one example of a politically correct and illogical regulation that is going to prevent average kiwis from eating from the wild.  Stop this encroachment on our right to responsibly feed ourselves; Because Sea Shepherd have launched a legal challenge in the USA to ban NZ fish exports to the USA (worth about NZ$200 million), the Government is introducing a set net ban out to 4 nautical miles in the Golden Bay and Tasman Bay regions to prove it is protecting dolphins when; 1. There are no 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:

Sign the petition in support of former Mayor Powell's suggestion for the Minister of Local Government to appoint a Crown Manager to Tauranga City Council.

In the last local government elections the residents of Tauranga Moana voted for a change in leadership at Tauranga City Council (TCC).  The residents voted for leadership that reflected the diversity in Tauranga. Acknowledging first Tangata Whenua and the principles of partnership, participation and protection outlined in the Tiriti o Waitangi.  Sadly there are some councillors and residents who do not want progress or the status quo to change.  This is evident in their opposition to  Māori War

Save our local firewood and landscape services provider from being shut down by Auckland Council!

Silverdale Landscape Services Limited has recently been issued an Abatement notice from Auckland Council ... so we only have a couple of months to save our business and our jobs!Unfortunately, even though the complaints made to Auckland Council from a couple of neighbours only relate to the firewood processing part of our business, an Abatement notice requires the entire business to cease as a whole.It's an unfortunate situation when the growth of Auckland City and urban developments threatens t

Stop the Greytown Trust Lands Trust from holding the Greytown Community to Ransom

The GTLT was established in 1871 with unsold sections from the early development of Greytown. Its purpose, set out in a parliamentary act, is to primarily assist education, but including libraries, physical welfare, other cultural purposes, and maintaining and promoting in the district the general well-being of the public. 150 years ago there was a real need for education support but now much of this is provided by central government.  The GTLT directors are holding our community to ransom by th

Prosecute Palmy Teen for assaulting THREE woman

A judge says a teenager who indecently assaulted three women could avoid a conviction. Te Rangiaho Ian Williams​, 18, was to be sentenced in the Palmerston North District Court on Thursday for the indecent assaults. But Judge Stephanie Edwards put the case off until September so a discharge without conviction could be considered. ”I’m troubled by this case,” she said. Each time Williams ran up behind a woman and indecently assaulted them. New Zealand this is an opportunity to band together and p

Bring Mock Exams and Study Leave Back

 The decision to cancel mock examinations and study leave at Westlake Girls High School was one made without the input of the student body- the people that this decision effects the most. The value of practice examinations and study leave is monumentally more than that of only two more weeks of teaching time. This decision should be altered if the student body wishes it so. In this current climate, where there is so much uncertainty having our practice examinations is vital. Considering that man

Oppose the AGM of Te Kotahitanga Maori Reservation Trust held by ZOOM.

As a beneficiary and those who oppose the Annual General Meeting being held Saturday 19th of December 2020 by Zoom, I seek the Trustees to move the AGM to a ‘Kanohi-ki-te-Kanohi’ physical forum. According to the Maori Reservation Regulations 1994 sect.19(2a); the Trustees have breached their obligations to ensure that the Annual General Meeting shall be open to attendance of all beneficiaries or other persons whose benefit is intended. We have beneficiaries who have 'No Confidence' in a Zoom AG
