Greens celebrate a smokefree New Zealand


Greens celebrate a smokefree New Zealand

Green Party members will be out on the town tomorrow celebrating bars and restaurants becoming smokefree.
“It’s fantastic that New Zealanders can now enjoy a drink in a bar and go home without smelling like an ashtray,” Green Party Health Spokesperson Sue Kedgley said.

“We are proud to have played a pivotal role in getting the Smokefree Bill passed. Every Green MP voted for it. Our members are keen to acknowledge that, and enjoy the positive impact this legislation will have on all our lives.”

Wellington Greens will celebrate in a pub the fact they can now “breathe while drinking”.
In Christchurch, local greens including MP Rod Donald will kick-off a “pub crawl” around inner city watering holes in Sammie's Jazz Bar at 5.30pm. Their next stop will be the “notorious” Baileys Bar.

Other green branches will visit pubs spreading Green messages. Nelson Greens will hand out peppermints.
