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!

Gordon Campbell:
On The Last Rites For The TPP

The Trans Pacific Partnership trade deal is one of those litmus issues that has always had more to do with one’s place on the political spectrum than with any imminent reality.

To date, the Greens have opposed (a) a wide range of the leaked content of the TPP (b) the secretive way it has been negotiated and (c) the undemocratic way in which any final document would be ratified. Labour has shared some of those concerns, but while remaining generally supportive of the deal itself.

National has, for its part, been very enthusiastic about the TPP, while still giving assurances about Pharmac being protected... For the TPP’s friends and foes alike though, the end now seems nigh. More>>
