Raybon Kan, Chloe Swarbrick + guests 30 Nov Welly
Chloe Swarbrick, Dr Paul Wood, Morgan Godfrey and Marianne Elliott will be joined by comedians Raybon Kan and Ray O'Leary for an evening of lively discussion, entertainment and debate on prison expansion in NZ from 6pm on 30 November at Wellington Girls' College Hall.
This JustSpeak event comes a month after the Government's $2.5 billion prison expansion announcement only 5 years after prisons were branded a moral and fiscal failure by Minister Bill English. Building another prison has been presented as something that we must do, with no question about whether we need to do this or if we should do this. Next week's event is an opportunity to do exactly that.
MPs, including Kelvin Davis and David Clendon, will give their responses to the panel discussion, and a statement from Minister Bill English will be read out. Also making an appearance will be spoken word poets Te Kahu Rolleston and Mary Rainsford! Our very own Julia Whaipooti will be keeping this action-packed evening on track. This is one not to miss.
You can RSVP for the Wellington event next Wednesday evening, or watch the livestream together at an event held in Christchurch or Auckland. You can also watch it directly through our Facebook page from 6pm on 30 November. #abillionbetterthings
