Keep our assets!

Back in March, a coalition of Grey Power, Labour and the Greens started the process for a Citizens Initiated Referendum on privatisation. Today, the wording of their proposed referendum question was approved, with a straightforward:

Do you support the Government selling up to 49 per cent of Meridian Energy, Mighty River Power, Genesis Power, Solid Energy and Air New Zealand?
Now all we need to do is collect 307,000 valid signatures...

The campaign will officially launch on May 10 in Wellington. If you'd like to be part of it, you can sign up on the Not Yours to Sell website. You can also download a copy of the petition and start collecting signatures from your friends and family. Every signature counts, so please start today.
