Media Advisory: National GE Free Day

Coalition for a GE-Free Environment Aotearoa New Zealand

Media Advisory

National GE Free Day, Saturday, October 6 - 20 centres around the Country

In 20 locations around the country, events have been organised for National GE Free Day October 6.

In many centres, people will be able to sign up to the NZ GE Free Register, a Northland- run project that invites people to register their homes, farms or businesses as GE Free. (http://www.gefreeregister.co.nz).

Centres will also be making banners to be joined as part of a giant national GE Free banner that will wrap the Beehive in mid-October.

At noon, Auckland Town Hall will be wrapped with a banner of signatures from thousands of Aucklanders.

At Civic Square in Wellington, where the longest GE Free sandwich is going to be served, Wellington people will have a choice of action to take for GE Free (such as joining newspaper pledge, signing a GE Free Wellington City petition).

In Dunedin, Mayor Sukhi Turner will address a rally in the Octagon.

The Government has said it will make its decision on New Zealand's GE Free status by October 31.

Gordon Campbell: On Whether Spotify Can Save Itself; Plus A Playlist


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...
