WHO WILL STAND FOR REAL CHANGE?

Right wing AND left wing politicians both seem to belong the same fattened kererū, and we are getting hungry enough to start throwing stones.

WHO WILL STAND FOR THE PEOPLE?

We’ve been telling our government in submissions, deputations, and consultations, but the feedback process is not accessible or equitable, and lacks accountability. The people have not been adequately heard, or represented. So Taraketi, We want to know;
