Show the bastards we're watching

Keith's motion calling on Parliament to condemn Guantanamo is good, but if we want it to pass, we should make sure our politicians know how we feel on the issue. So, I suggest emailing Helen Clark and other party leaders asking them to support the motion. The appropriate email addresses are:

Show the bastards we're watching, and that we'll judge them on how well they stand up for human rights.

Update: I've now created a pledge on Pledgebank for this, for people who want some indication that they won't be acting alone. You can sign it here.


I just got a short reply from Tariana Turia saying the Maori Party had offered their support to Keith from 'day one'. Do we know where any of the other parties stand yet?

Not yet; I've had no response other than the generic "your mail has been received and will be passed on" from National and the Maori Party.

It's good to hear that the Maori Party is standing in the right place on this. It's a shame that not enough of our other MPs are.
