PRESS STATEMENT.
COALITION FOR SOCIAL JUSTICE
ph:09 8366389, 021 2106720,
Meredydd Barrar (spokesperson)
A new group has been formed called the Coalition for Social Justice. Its aim is to organise concerns within local communities around the governments Budget proposals and their implications for ordinary New Zealanders
.
Spokesperson Meredydd Barrar says, “Asset sales  cuts to working for families, Kiwi Saver, student loans and general austerity measures are not working in the interests of the majority of kiwis who are struggling to make ends meet.
.
“The Coalition is made up of members of community groups, people from religious organisations and unions. Our aim is to promote social justice.
We are organising a MOBILISATION of ordinary Kiwis on SATURDAY 28TH MAY 12pm QE2 Square, bottom of Queen st, Auckland City (see attachment). Also more action as the election campaign develops.
New Zealanders are angry about GST, milk prices and secret Trade deals, cuts to Early Childhood education and privatisation of electricity…Aswell as PPP’s for shcools and other public services.. l
Meredydd Barrar, spokesperson says, “Enough is enough. Recent government announcements about cuts and a Budget that will certainly condemn the majority of New Zealanders to relative poverty is not acceptable. Children and struggling families as well as students looking to further their higher education will be penalised”.
There is a latent anger in New Zealand at the moment. We aim to translate it into action.
Policies of cut backs and austerity measures will increase the gap between rich and poor which is already the 6th highest in the OECD. We believe this is unacceptable and uncivilised.
New Zealanders deserve better than an economic philosophy that only seems to make bankers, corporates and speculators richer.
