Take Steps Against Child Poverty with Us!

TAKE STEPS AGAINST CHILD POVERTY WITH US!
Britomart to Aotea Square, Auckland, 11am, Saturday 6 Sept
Music * Interactive Art * Stilt Walkers * Great Speakers * Plus more!

Please join us and thousands of people just like you in 'taking steps against child poverty' from Britomart to Aotea Square to call for real action on child poverty in our country.

We want all our beautiful children to reach their potential - but sadly one in four children don't get a fair go in New Zealand. We're calling ALL political parties to come together immediately after the election to form a cross party agreement on an action plan to reduce child poverty. We're asking for a firm indication from political leaders that they are committed to the steps needed to give all children a fair go so they can reach their potential.

We aim for this to be a really colourful, child-friendly event - bringing diverse sections of our community together to show the nation how much we care about our children and their well-being. Come one, come all!

On The Inquiry Into One Case Of Dirty Politics

Suddenly, we’re awash in inquiries and reviews. (It feels almost as if the Greens won the last election.)

Gordon Campbell: On Rick Ellis As Te Papa’s New CEO

The recent appointment of former TVNZ boss Rick Ellis to head Te Papa has copped a fair bit of criticism. Much of it has been inspired by the suspicion that Ellis has been hired to pursue the same purely commercial goals as he did at TVNZ, while similarly neglecting the serious cultural side of his mandate.
