MP's Fail men Again

MP's Fail Men Again

For immediate release

Having traveled from Auckland to Wellington to highlight men's concern over :

Child Support Rip Off
Family Court Fiasco
Prostate Posturing
Educational Bias
No Men's Ministry

Kerry Bevin, Men's Convoy 2005 Co-ordinator " is amazed that no political party cares enough about men's issues to address the super heroes rally at Parliament at 1pm Friday 11 March."

" Fifty percent of the voting population, apparently doesn't count in the eyes of our politicians. They cant even take the time to listen to the real concerns facing New Zealand men." commented Kerry

" Men need to seriously consider where they cast their vote this election as no party currently represents men's interests in Parliament. Men need to vote vise in 2005. Reflected Bevin

" What will it take to redress the imbalance and reverse the growing marginalising of another generation of men? Do politicians realise the level of commitment that men have when protecting their children and grandchildren from the inter-generational harm this causes.? Concluded Bevin.


Kerry Bevin can be contacted on 025-613-2806 or 021-800-586
