Allow Essential Maintenance of Golf Courses During Lockdown Period

MBIE have determined that golf course turf maintenance is not an essential service during the Covid-19 lockdown period. If critical parts of any golf course (namely putting greens) do not receive basic maintenance over the shutdown period, the task of restoring the greens to required standards/conditions may not be achievable or affordable for many golf clubs. The long term financial impacts for these clubs, and consequently for the many NZ’ers who enjoy the game, will be far reaching.   Please

Name the NorthConnex Tunnel after Jim Adams.

This petition is to show support for the naming of the NorthConnex Tunnel after Jim Adams who lost his life during the construction of the tunnel on May 23rd 2017. To name this tunnel after a well respected man is a small token of appreciation for both the memory of Jim and his family.

Put a hold on the roll out 5G

I am expressing my concerns about the detrimental affect non ionizing radiation could have on our children who are our potential future leader of our country New Zealand. There has been no sufficient scientific study on the 5G platform to indicate that 5G is safe for our children. I believe parliament has not taken the appropriate measures to ensure the health and safety of our children and the NZ public. I simply ask that parliament holds on the roll out of 5G until sufficient scientific eviden

Let butchers open during the lockdown

Many people including myself buy their meat at independent butchers rather than the supermarket. Now the butchers have been told they have to close as they are 'non-essential'.  We, the signers of this petition, disagree. It is unfair and makes no sense. A dairy and a greengrocer can open but a butcher next door cannot. Supermarkets shouldn't be given a monopoly on the sale of meat. See also: Coronavirus: Piles of meat to be given away, thrown out after butchers told they're not an 'essential bu

PLEASE support HEALTH PROFESSIONALS to be allowed to wear INNOVATIVE PPE (Personal Protective Equipment)!

We as HEALTH PROFESSIONALS are currently risking our lives to serve the sick. Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) funded  by the New Zealand Ministry of Health (NZMoH) and supplied by District Health Boards (DHBs) is precious and exhaustive in quantity. As HEALTH PROFESSIONALS we would like the opportunity to protect ourselves by being permitted to wear INNOVATIVE PPE (e.g. homemade facemasks, etc.).

Financial Support for Temporary Visa Holders in Australia - COVID 19

Due to the covid-19 pandemic a lot of temporary visa holders in Australia (visitor visas, student visas, 482 visa holders, working holiday visas), have been left unemployed and stranded in Australia. So far, The Australian Government has done nothing to support temporary visa holders in Australia. It has not provided a clear indication of what, if any financial support will be provided. Temporary visa holders need help and we request the Australian Government provide a clear answer to them.   We

Let people buy computers during lockdown

Many people that now find themselves in lockdown could work much more efficiently if they were given the opportunity to setup their homes properly. Most families are unprepared and because of this inefficient or even totally unproductive. The reality in most families is that they have only one home computer or in poorer families no computer. This computer is normally setup for games and not very useful for home office or online studies. Now one or two of the parents in a normal family are trying

Call for more free minutes for NZers during the COVID-19 lock down

I think it’s time for the Telco corporations operating in NZ (Vodafone, Spark, Skinny, etc) to put their profits where their customers are and provide more free minutes to NZers during the COVID-19 lock down. Facetime is free, but many of our grandparents, uncles, aunties and great-grandparents don’t have smart phones to utilise this technology.  For the mental health of the country, I emplore these organisations to consider providing more free minutes to landlines/mobiles so we can keep in touc

Pay increase for Supermarket workers during pandemic

Supermarkets are making an enormous profit from the Covid-pandemic because of the surge of panic buyers this year.  New Zealand has decided to declare a stage 4 lockdown; meaning all nonessential businesses will close for at least 4 weeks. Sadly, supermarket workers (some as young as 15) must continue to work day and night, while putting their own safety and health at risk during this lockdown period.  It's only fair to encourage these high profitable supermarket's to pay the 'essential workers'
