Help Tax Justice send a message to Sheriff John Key

Kia ora supporters of Tax Justice,

Things are coming together for our post-Budget push to get 10,000 more signatures for the Tax Justice petition, which requests parliament to: 1. Remove GST from Food; and 2. Tax Financial Speculation.

Another 10,000 signatures will take us past 40,000, and on our way to 50,000+ by the time we present the petition to parliament in August.

If you would like to help on a Tax Justice petition stall over the three days (Fri-Sun 20-22 May), you can contact these regional organisers:

For everywhere else, contact Vaughan Gunson, Tax Justice campaign coordinator, email, phone (09)433 8897 or 021-0415 082.

No matter where you are, you can help the campaign, by either collecting signatures from friends, family and workmates or setting up a Tax Justice petition stall on a busy street in your area. All you need is a small table, the petition on a clipboard, some pens, and a poster (anything with “GST off food” on it will bring people over).

Help kick-off our signature drive in Auckland, 19 May

On Thursday 19 May (the day of the Budget), there will be a media preview at the TVNZ studios, 100 Victoria Street West, Auckland CBD.

The media will be locked-in until 1.55pm. We want to have a crowd of people who support tax justice outside the TVNZ studios when the media leave. If you would like to come along dressed as Robin Hood (with toy bow and arrows) please do. Should be fun! All welcome.

We’ll be collecting signatures for the Tax Justice petition from 12noon to 3pm on this busy central city street.

Let us know how you get on

If you do collect signatures for the Tax Justice petition in the days after the budget, then send in an email or txt the number you collected. Then we can add your efforts to the national total we’ll be releasing to the media.

Hope you can help make a difference.

Kind regards,
Vaughan Gunson
