Vote "YES" in the Referendum


A ‘yes’ vote is a vote to retain a law that is working well.

A ‘yes’ vote is a vote to protect children from assault.

A ‘yes’ vote is a vote for positive parenting.

A ‘yes’ vote is supported by:


Barnardos,

Plunket,

Save the Children,

Unicef

and many other respected child-focussed organisations.

Sure, the referendum is worded badly. But don't let that be an excuse for apathy.

Your silence may be counted against your opinion anyway.

It is important to register your support for a law that takes away an excuse for child abusers to flourish.

If you need any further information to help motivate you to vote

YES,

please see the website http://yesvote.org.nz

Drinking Liberally


Drinking liberally starts again in Dunedin - and this week it is the turn of Labour's Pete Hodgson to speak and field questions.


Is Labour a progressive party? Is it still the party of the working class? What is the legacy of the fifth Labour Government 1999-2008?


We are pleased to announce the next Drinking Liberally will be attended by Dunedin North MP and former Cabinet Minister Pete Hodgson, who can provide an important insight into these and other questions.


It's not often you can share a pint with one of New Zealand's most experienced politicians, and we implore Drinking Liberators to come open minds but tough questions for our local MP.


This is the first of Drinking Liberally Dunedin's Winter Series, with many more interesting speakers planned for the future. Don't hibernate, liberate!


Help foster Dunedin's forum for Progressive Action through Social Interaction!

Where: Velvet Underground, Lower Stuart Street

When: 7pm Tuesday June 9
If you miss this one, try for the one second Tuesday in July.
And check out an interview with the Dunedin organiser on a channel 9 news item.
