Aotearoa Not For Sale – Big signature-gathering push in Kilbirnie, Wellington

.

.

24 November, Wellington – Aotearoa is Not For Sale (ANFS), Wellington branch, took part in a nationwide push to gather more signatures for the petition,  calling for a referendum on state asset sales.

ANFS campaigners took to the streets of Kilbirnie, one of Wellington’s eastern-suburns, close to the airport.

Campaigners took up prime spots in Bay Rd – Kilbirnie’s main street – and outside Pak’n’Save, in the next street adjacent.

Ready to take up the challenge,

A citizen only to happy to sign Warwick’s petition,

This gentleman needed no encouragement to sign Phil’s petition and was not happy with National’s plans to partially-privatise assets that belong to us all,

No sooner does one finish signing, and another person comes up to Warwick,

Collecting more signatures in Bay Road, Kilbirnie’s “main drag”,

All up, several hundred signatures were collected and several dozen electoral enrollent forms handed out. It was a good day for hittuing the streets.

One interesting thing that we found was that most people had already signed the petition. It seems the campaign is well supported by New Zealanders of all walks of life. (John Key – take note.)

Anyone wanting to download the petition can do so from here: http://keepourassets.org.nz/

If you  can’t print of a petition form, please email this blogger, and I will post out forms to you,

Remember – every signature counts! (And make sure you are on the Electoral Roll – if you’re not on the Roll, your signature may be discounted.)
