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

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. In an article, social services secretary Pam Waugh stated that she has "...heard of them rolling up newspaper; putting it inside socks; we've heard them using old sanitary pads that they've washed or recycled; and we've also heard about them using leaves and newspapers just so that they can actually function well." On average, a women "....has her perio

Change the 'Parkin Drawing Prize' to the 'Parkin Art Prize'

The Parkin Drawing Prize organisers are refusing to quote "wrap rules around" this prestigious drawing competition, with up $25000 top prize money given to art that doesn't resemble drawing in the slightest each year.  They have chosen to use controversy and debate as excuses for the reason to award this money to what should be classified as Modern Art, and have admitted there is only one person who's opinion matters: (Comment by Parkin staff on their facebook page): "Art is subjective and we ha

Shut down Mclaren Circus, South Africa

Mclaren circus uses animals such as lions, snakes, tigers, camels and many more. These animals should not be used as entertainment and these animals deserve to have a better life and be free from that horrible business. The animals deserve to be respected and to be free to live in the wild instead of cages for peoples entertainment.  THIS NEEDS TO STOP.

Support a vote of no confidence in the petition for a vote of no confidence in Dunedin Councillors and the Mayor

Unfortunately many people do not understand the process of democracy and despite the recent democratically conducted local council elections, because they did not get the mayor they wanted they somehow believe the democratic process was not followed. Some of these people are unable to deal with the fact that there are other people out there that have a different opinion to them, so everytime a decision does not go in their favour they spend a lot of time and effort on social media moaning about

Keep Firework Sales

Petition to keep firework sales in New Zealand For kiwis, Guy Fawkes has become an occasion signalling the coming of summer and a chance for family and friends to get together and take in the excitement of spectacular fireworks. The question is WHY take this away? It is sad to hear that so many people have signed a petition to ban firework sales but the majority must lie on the other side of the fence. Don't let the minority win.  If you feel that you would like to contest the petition against f

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
