Racism has no place in sport

Racism has no place in sport - Race Relations Commissioner


Racism is a coward’s game that has no place on our sports fields says Race Relations Commissioner Dame Susan Devoy.

“Whether it’s the Super Rugby final or a schoolboy 1st XV game: racism is a coward’s game that has no place in New Zealand sport,” says Race Relations Commissioner Dame Susan Devoy.

“Good on Crusader Nemani Nadolo for calling out racist abuse he’s faced: the rest of us need to back our sportsmen, women and kids by condemning racism when and where we see it.”

“Playing international sport is tough enough without having to contend with racist abuse as well,” said Dame Susan.

Election Day: Make Sure You're A Part Of It!

Saturday 20 September, is election day, and New Zealanders’ last chance to have a say on who leads the country for the next three years.

“The people and parties we elect tomorrow will be making the decisions that affect us, our families and our communities,” says Robert Peden, Chief Electoral Officer. “It doesn’t get much more important than that, and we need all New Zealanders to use their voice and vote.”

Voting places will be open from 9.00am until 7.00pm on election day. The busiest time at voting places is usually 9.00am - 11.00am.

“Take your EasyVote card with you when you go to vote, as it will make voting faster and easier, and vote close to home if you can. But don’t worry if you forget your card, or didn’t receive one, because as long as you are enrolled to vote, your voice will be heard,” says Mr Peden. More>>
