“wellbeing” consensus, climate change

Press release by Citizens Environmental Advocacy Centre.
12th May 2019.

Mother’s day edition. - “wellbeing” consensus, climate change – all in one here folks

Happy birthday to all mothers as we fight for our collective ‘wellbeing’.

Our HB/Gisborne community is still awaiting the Labour coalition promises made to us all in 2016 in the Gisborne Herald.

Three parties all now in Labour coalition had promised restoration of our rail services that the National Government has allowed to become partly washed out in 2012 by a lack of funding for rail maintenance to keep the infrastructure free of damages from any storms.

This service was already under community restoration as industry was wanting more freight services then in 2011 when in December the HBRC had evidence that more freight was wanted to be carried on Gisborne rail in a press release 21st December 2011 entitled “At risk rail can’t cope”.
(links are all provided below" http://www.stuff.co.nz/dominion-post/news/6170590/At-risk-rail-line-can-t-cope-with-demand

We are claiming our right to have our rail services restored by this new Labour Coalition Government under the new “wellbeing budget policy.https://www.labour.org.nz/wellbeingbudget

Benefits to our wellbeing;



This promise will see Government reducing carbon emissions and increasing infrastructure under two of the ‘five priorities’ using – Boosting Innovation, & Creating Opportunities .

QUOTE; “Alongside GDP, we will measure ourselves against five key priorities that will make real improvements to the lives of New Zealanders. We’ve used evidence to identify the five areas we can make the greatest difference. Boosting Innovation, Creating Opportunities, Backing Māori & Pasifika, Supporting Mental Health, Improving Child Wellbeing.

Please Government give us in HB/Gisborne back our Gisbone Rail as you are doing already in most other provinces, such as Wairarapa, Tananaki, Canterbury, Otago, Westland, Waikato and Northland. – So we await your response in the new GPS called "wellbeing budget" https://www.labour.org.nz/wellbeingbudget

SCOOP COVERAGE: CHRISTCHURCH MOSQUES TERROR ATTACK


camouflage

Gordon Campbell: On Why We Shouldn’t Genuflect To Calls For Secrecy

Reportedly most (and possibly all) of the Royal Commission investigation into the Christchurch mosque shootings will be closed to the general public and to the media.

Oh sure, come delivery date in December there will be some kind of “public-facing” document containing conclusions and rationales, but there will have been no interim way of scrutinizing the inquiry’s rigour, or how fairly its findings reflect the evidence. More>>
