So what’s happening in the campaign against state asset sales? Well, Peter Dunne may have given the Government the vote it needed to pass its Mixed Ownership Model, but there’s a long way between passing the enabling legislation and actually flogging off the nation’s silverware to foreign investors.
The petition to force a Citizens’ Initiated Referendum on asset sales is rapidly gathering signatures: you can download the paper petition (that’s the one that matters!) and get involved at keepourassets.org.nz
And there is another day of protests against asset sales coming up this Saturday. The Government may have persuaded Peter Dunne to vote in favour of asset sales, but it certainly hasn’t persuaded the country. Check out the action nearest to you this Saturday, and get involved.
