The foreshore and seabed debate.
Help STOP the Bill _ email National MP's
There is every sign that National is planning to ram the Bill through Parliament under urgency. That means it will be passed into law by the end of the week. You can read the Coastal Coalition newsletter explaining what is going on To help us STOP the Bill, we are calling on you to do two things:
1. Read the flier and email all National MPs and Peter Dunne
2. Send the flier on to everyone in your address book – let’s send it viral!
The flier can be found on www.CoastalCoalition.co.nz
The flier explains why the Bill will be bad for New Zealand and should be stopped. It enables readers to email all National MPs to tell them directly that they will not vote for them, donate any campaign funds, nor help in the election - if they go ahead and pass this Bill.
In a democracy, your opinion counts, so please email National MPs urgently.
And don’t forget Peter Dunne – his vote is crucial. If he were to vote against the Bill right now, the Bill would fail. In 2003 he was opposed to race-based laws: “If we create rights for some New Zealanders and not others, then we start down a very sure and slippery slope to anarchy." Shouldn’t he be opposing the Marine and Coastal Area Bill for the same reason?
If you believe New Zealand’s foreshore and seabed should stay in Crown ownership, then please help us circulate this flier as far and wide as possible.
There is no time to lose.
