"Our Water - NOT For Sale!" Conference

The Wellington Residents Coalition, supported by a variety of organisations, aims to get together people who are opposed to the privatisation of New Zealand's water. That's why we are organising a conference (see attached leaflet) on the Saturday after Labour weekend - Saturday October 28th, in Wellington.

You and/or the members of your organisation are invited to join us.

You will be aware of the range of multinational companies e.g. Anglian Water, lining up to "offer their services". Experience of such services in numerous countries from Britain to Bolivia is disastrous. Prices skyrocket, water purity declines, and the only people that profit are the company shareholders.

We have already had experience of this process in Wellington, with our electricity. The Municipal Electricity Department became a corporation - Capital Power. This was sold to Trans Alta, and you know the rest - residential power charges up, and quality of service down.

However, we can put a stop to this if we organise, throughout the country, noting what the Water Pressure Group in Auckland has already done to put the Water issue on the map. That's the point of this conference.

Please contact the undersigned.

Spotify has to be one of the most interestingly futile mouse-wheels of 21st century capitalism. Run, run, run goes the Spotify mouse but it never, ever makes a profit. For reasons set out below, it maybe never will. But it won’t be for wont of trying. Reportedly, Spotify’s music library contains 70 million tracks and it adds 60,000 more each day. By some estimates it adds on average, one new track every 1.4 seconds. (No wonder it's so hard to keep up with new music.) Spotify has 345 million active users, and 155 million of them have been willing to pay a subscription in order to enjoy their music ad-free. Ads are not a major driver of company revenue...
