Pay equity faxathon

Last week, the government showed its contempt for women by shitcanning two inquiries into pay-equity in the public sector. This has inspired the folks at the Hand Mirror to organise a protest: a pay-equity faxathon. On March 6th (next Friday), print the above, sign it (and get your friends to sign it), and fax it to Tony Ryall's office (04 817 6504). If you don't use archaic fax technology, you can always post it (remember, postage to Parliament is free), or email him on

A big backlash now may limit government action in the future. So, start collecting signatures today.
