Liveable Income For All

Posted on Updated on

As we all know, The Labour Party’s recent election campaign focused heavily on “eliminating poverty in New Zealand”. However, now that they hold the majority in government, they have said that “this is a problem that cannot be fixed in a month, a year, or even a term”.
They seem to have U-turned on this policy. Anger and indignation on this stance are rife throughout the country.

In response to this, UCAN and other groups have organised a picket protest outside of Parliament on Tuesday December 8th, gathering from 1:30pm and beginning at 2pm when Parliament rises for the day. At the same time, there will be a partner protest outside of Jacinda Ardern’s MP office in Tāmaki Makaurau, Auckland, being run by AAAP, another in Ōtepoti, Dunedin, and also in Ōtautahi, Christchurch.

Bring your signs and banners for the day.

We are looking for speakers for the Wellington event. You can contact the organiser at stacey.ryan.988@gmail.com or 0226942372.

After the protest, Ricardo Menendez-March of the Green Party, Spokesperson for Social Development and Employment, has reserved seats for protestors to watch his Maiden Speech in Parliament at 4:30pm.
