The big push


Hate the government's shortsighted ECE cuts? Want to do something about them? If you live in Auckland, then you can. The NZEI is holding a protest march up Queen Street in a fortnight, aimed at showing the government the depth of public opposition to its ECE cuts. Go along, and show them you want to invest in New Zealand's future.

When: 10:30, Saturday, 26 February
Where: Starts Queen Elizabeth Square, and marching up Queen St
Bring: Children, friends, prams.

If you don't live in Auckland, then you can sign a petition against the cuts [PDF] instead. Print it out, sign it, and send it back. The more signatures, the greater the threat to the government - and in election year, those threats count.
