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.

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.). Health Consumers may also benefit when being cared for by Health Professionals. The ULTIMATE GOA

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'

NO COUNTRY FOR ELITE/SEXIST/RACIST WHITE MEN

National MP, Paul Goldsmith, is an inadequate representive for our parliament and our people.  I believe he should apologise or resign - ideally both. Paul is a descendant of Charles George Goldsmith, a migrant from Liverpool who settled in the East cape area early in New Zealand's colonial history. Charles Goldsmith had four wives—two Māori (Ngāti Porou), and two pākehā—fathering 16 children. However Goldsmith has clarified that he is not himself of Māori descent, in fact, despite his Auckland

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

New DJ for the Thirsty Whale

I'm sure everyone's getting a bit over wanting to spend their Saturdays going to the one club in napier just to awkwardly dance to timber by ke$ha on repeat. So while they've decided to close down for a few weeks hopefully they can spend some time looking for a new DJ or making a new playlist. LET'S MAKE A CHANGE FOR THE BETTER sign my petition if you think thirsty whale should fire the DJ and play some bangers.

New Plymouth Girls' High School Vape Policy

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 affects of vaping. We would like to eliminate this option in order to protect th

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
