Help Us Turn Up The Youth Vote - #RockEnrol is Crowd Funding

Help Us Turn Up The Youth Vote #RockEnrol


Crowdfunding Announcement
#RockEnrol Pledgeme Crowdfunding Page

#RockEnrol is a non-partisan campaign that uses popular culture, technology, music & events to build & activate political power for young people in Aotearoa NZ.

The goals of #RockEnrol are simple:

1. Get people enrolled (hype)
2. Get people informed (content)
3. Get people out to vote (action)

Building a movement
We are running a 60-day series of events & parties all around the country where the only way to get a ticket is you have to enrol & pledge to vote (for any political party) in the 2014 General Election. Inspired by Rock The Vote, NZ Music Month & Oxfam’s Fairtrade Fortnight – people can organise their own #RockEnrol Party at home or in their community, or they can attend a party that we organise at a club or a venue. Hosts will be able to download or get sent out a Host Pack and the best hosts go in the draw to win cool prizes (like festival tickets, music vouchers & gym memberships).

What do we need money for?
Parties & events need money to run. You can help us keep these events free by pledging today. Our goal is to raise $10k in 3 weeks (but we set the target at $5k, so we can at least get that). The money will be used to help pay the creative people behind the #RockEnrol parties all around the country (because too many artists & creative people work for free & they shouldn't have to).

Who is playing?
Third3ye, Homebrew, Optimus Gryme, Chronophonium, Tyra Hammond, The Side Steps Quintet, Salmonella Dub, Olie Bassweight & more.

Who are we?
RockEnrol is a collaboration between Our Place Events & Generation Zero (among others). Our Place Events connects the crowd to the cause using the cultural mediums that people already know & love. Generation Zero is a youth-led organisation that works to inspire action in a generation to combat climate change.

Can’t pledge money but want to play, promote or perform for #RockEnrol?
Fill in the Google form here and we will get you more information!

Werewolf Issue #49: Gordon Campbell Interviews Laila Harre

For 25 years, Labour and National have been in virtual agreement about the basics of economic policy, and differed mainly on how to go about managing its social consequences.

Such is the power of the economic orthodoxy that when opposition parties arise – say, in the shape of the Greens – their “credibility” is measured by the extent to which they give the appearance of learning and abiding by the ruling consensus.

The tension between the desire for change – and the inability of the current political framework to deliver it – creates openings for populists of all stripes. It is what has made the emergence of Internet Mana so interesting. More>>
