All Blacks Need 'Kiwi' Clobber

10th October 2006

"Now we've convinced the government, maybe there's hope for 'single' Dan"

"The government is to be commended for it's decision to maintain the word 'made' in the government sponsored 'Buy Kiwi Made' campaign," says Judith Bell, founder of MADENZ and author of the recently published book "I See Red" (published by Awa Press).

"Not only does this decision honour the intent of the late Green Co-Leader Rod Donald who fought hard for this campaign, but it also honours those proud kiwi manufacturers who against all odds have remained committed to maintaining their manufacturing operations in New Zealand. It also encourages true loyalty between New Zealand manufacturers, their local workers and local consumers who know the positive economic, social and environmental value of buying locally made products."

"John Walker - the great New Zealand long distance runner - proudly wore a black New Zealand made singlet when he won the 1976 Montreal Olympics 1500m gold medal. Now we must convince 'single' Dan Carter and his fellow All Blacks, of the power of a New Zealand made singlet to show as much support and loyalty for New Zealanders, as New Zealanders do for them."
