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:

SAVE SUVILAHTI DIY!

(English text below) Suvilahden skeittiparkki on purku-uhan alla Kalasataman alueen uudistuksessa ja tämä on ehdottomasti estettävä!   Suvilahti DIYn kaltaiset yhteisöllisesti rakennetut vapaat toimintaympäristöt tekevät kaupungista huomattavasti geneeristä ympäristöä kiinnostavamman ja valovoimaisemman. Tämän päivän kovinta valuuttaa ovat yhteisöllisyys, tarinat ja käsityöläisyys ja sitä kautta syntynyt kulttuurillinen arvo - niitä kaikkia Suvilahden skeittiparkissa on huomattavia määriä suhte

We, the undersigned, are concerned citizens who urge our leaders to act now to build a full footpath along Kyle Road.   我们需要确保我们的孩子的安全。我们需要整个Kyle Road都有

Crush the Quarry Featherston - Stop the Rock Crushing Onsite!

The quarry approved for Featherston and already started is just 3.8km away from our main street on Underhill Road.  When we factor in wind, the quarry dust (and potentially damaging silica) has the ability to reach the township.  The quarry also has devastating environmental aspects.  The Quarry is approved (for now), so as a community we have the chance to stop the crushing on-site and ugly stock piling.   Keep your kids breathing clean air.  Be able to hang out your laundry and open the window
