Bill English will be speaking at the Northern Regional Conference on Sunday 14 May, where Northern Regional National Party members will be discussing their election strategy.

This is a call to action to join Auckland Action Against Poverty in disrupting business as usual and demand a new strategy on housing, welfare, and work.

There is a crisis for unemployed and low-paid workers in Aotearoa/ NZ and the political parties are ignoring this to gain votes. We need massive amounts of state housing. We need benefit levels and incomes to a livable amount. We need to end the punishment of the poor and unemployed.

Join AAAP at 11:30AM to grill Bill and the National Party!

    “You say cut back, we say fight back!” And what happens? The cutbacks are made are the fightback never comes. The only way to stop the treasonous foreign-puppet kleptocrats is to actually fight back, LITERALLY.

    I would be asking Bill why it has abandoned John Keys pledge in 2008 to address New Zealand’s growing ” underclass ” and his promise of real ” higher ” wages.

    There was nothing much, but a brief reference to it, on the TV news re this protest at the National Party’s norther conference:

    ‘Protest erupts outside National Party conference’

    http://www.nzherald.co.nz/politics/news/article.cfm?c_id=280&objectid=11855831

    “Protesters erupted in a violent scuffle outside a National Party conference today.

    A mob of welfare activists attempted to break through police lines to where Prime Minister Bill English was speaking.

    One protester made a break for it and was tackled to the ground and handcuffed by three police officers.

    He was arrested for trespassing.

    The protest was organised by Auckland Action Against Poverty (AAAP).”

    “Spokeswoman Vanessa Cole said the group was calling for three key systemic changes to alleviate poverty – the mass building of state housing, a living income for everyone, and the end of penalties against beneficiaries.

    “We have seen massive levels of poverty in Aotearoa,” she said.”

    I must note, they do not even bother communicating with Labour much these days, hence no word of such bold policies on Labour’s Pre Election Conference in Wellington.
