$100 Flat Charge For Waste Water. Waitakere City

Citizens Against Privatisation

C.A.P are bringing back the age old institution of the 'Town Cryer'. As a means of encouraging people to attend a meeting of Waitakere City Council at 5.30pm Wednesday 29th November at Waitakere City Council offices (Waipareira Ave, off Lincoln Road).

Dean Murray, C.A.P member says:

"The council will be making its final decision on the $100 waste water charge at this meeting. We are calling on people to oppose this Go Waitakere policy and attend the 29th November meeting at 5.30pm".

C.A.P will present 4000 individual submissions opposing the charge at the meeting.


He says "Catherine Street is one of the few places left where we can collect submissions and get our message across. The market place has been privatised. Pak and Save (Lincoln North) and Henderson shopping mall have refused us entry. Traditionally the market place was where people meet to discuss the issues of the day. These privately owned companies are now denying the public these rights. Our group cannot afford paid advertisements so we hope the 'Town Cryer' idea will get the message across. Despite the best efforts of Pak and Save and Henderson Mall to stop us".

Gordon Campbell: On Responding To The Need In Tonga

The power of the Tonga eruption (and the size of the aid response being mounted) have been sobering indications of the scale of this disaster.
