Bevin goes Pasifika in Auckland.


Date 6th March 2008

Bevin goes Pasifika in Auckland.

Republican leader Kerry Bevin says, "Here in Auckland Central the Pasifika Festival underlines the multi cultural society that modern New Zealand has become."

Integrating pacific islanders fully into our community cannot be achieved until we all have equality before the law, with a constitution.

"Samoa has a constitution! Where is ours?" Mr Bevin asks.

The Auckland central candidate announces the Republic of NZ party's policy to invest in Kiwi Bank so we can provide the best home loans to house families who are struggling.

The way forward to a better life is also through education and more resources must be committed to education to make it truly free.

Free Kindergarten for three year olds has not been delivered. The Republicans will do this said Mr Bevin.

The countries of the Pacific, the Pacific Rim, Australia and New Zealand would benefit from a New Pacific dollar, but this may not be possible until both Australia and New Zealand reach Republican status.

Meet the Republicans at Pasifika this weekend from 11.00am to 3.00pm.
