Take a stand for clean politics

Want to speak out about dirty politics? Action Station - a kiwi attempt at Avaaz - is running an open letter in the Herald next week. They're looking for people to sign it - and people to help pay for it (note: email them for a bank account number if its easier).

I think this is an important issue. Politics does not have to be dirty, and the presence of this sort of activity here is a disease within our democracy. The best way to eradicate that disease is to let politicians know - with our voices and our votes - that we will not tolerate it. So, if you don't like it, speak up - because the politicians will treat your silence as consent.
