picking your brain and seeing if you’d join us in a project

Kia ora Jan,

Great to hear from you – sorry it’s taken me a while to get back, but I was away for a few days down in Rotorua for a national Mana hui.

Which brings me to your email – it does feel a bit strange for me to get involved in a Green Party MPs’ tour, much as I love both MPs involved! – so at this stage, pending further info, I’ll decline with regret.

However, just to say it’s not that I"d never work with you – I"ve been hoping for ages that we’d have a chance to connect in person just to talk this kind of stuff through. If you’re ever up in Auckland with a bit of time to spare, can you let me know, just in case we can meet up? – and I"ll do the same next time I come to Wgtn.

I"m riding that difficult line all the time now between being a spokesperson for Auckland Action against Poverty & also being involved with Mana – I have to work out the implications on a pragmatic basis and this panui of yours is a case in point.

Hope we can talk more – I guess I"m a bit unclear about exactly what you want from me (or AAAP?) anyway in the email, which isn’t helping decision making on my part. Ring me if you want – my best numbers these days = mob 027 243 4239, at AUT during the day – 09 921 9999 ext 7680.

Am following you from afar with fascination – hope we connect soon,
nga mihi, Sue

Kia ora lovely Sue,

I hope you are well. We really must catch up if you’ve got time next time I’m up in Auckland. I can’t believe I haven’t managed to yet. I would really like to hear how things are going with things in Auckland and the encouraging rumours I hear of a National beneficiary network.

I’m acutely aware that while we can oppose the welfare reforms as strongly as possible. We don’t really have a wide base of support in our opposition. We’ll obviously be speaking out against the changes as much as we can but I feel as if I also need to focus on trying to build bridges and campaigns to change the way people think about welfare.

Denise and I are currently planning a pilot Pecha Kucha tour to be completed by the end of June with meetings in Auckland, Hamilton, Wellington, Paekakariki, Nelson, Christchurch, and Dunedin. You can find out more about the Pecha Kucha (small talks) format here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pecha_Kucha

We’re planning on having up to ten short presentations covering a range of perspectives – the basic unifying factor being the human and economic impacts of the government’s pursuit of a low wage economy including the impacts of welfare reforms.

We hope to have people talking about the impact of changes for people with disabilities, mental health issues, women, young people, children, new migrants, Maori and Pacifica as well as presentations considering the impact of the 90 day rule, welfare reform, changes to immigration policy for skilled migrants, and squeeze on funding for community agencies and government spending priorities in overview. We would do a final summary presentation connecting the dots between presentations. Having a range of presenters will hopefully mean we can guarantee an audience and wider advertising through your networks. I’m particularly keen to establish the links between welfare reform and employment law and economic reforms and to try to get the unions working more in solidarity.

We’ve set the following dates:

26 April – Paekakariki

3 May – Wellington

14 May – Auckland

16 May – Hamilton

7 June – Christchurch

8/9 June – Nelson

18 June – Dunedin

We wouldn’t have all the topics above at all the events but would film all of them and hopefully have them available on our website, as the start of a campaign. After the presentations we will have an open discussion.

We will organise the venue, advertising and media as well as provide some more support around how to develop and effective presentation, if that assistance was wanted. The presentations could include stories of people/more theoretical analysis.

This will be the first stage in a campaign that will hopefully involve a wide range of people and organisations. Would you be interested in presenting and do you have suggestions for other strong advocates?

Cheers,

Jan

Without Your Walls : Time for transition

Dear Without Your Walls reader,
For three years Without Your Walls has been reporting from the front lines of climate justice with 20,000 visits to the site since it all began.

Without Your Walls is very happy to announce that it will be undergoing some exciting changes over the next month or so, so its out with the old and in with the new, which is going to include new contributors for original articles about climate justice, interviews with people actively fighting for climate justice and lots more.

Fingers crossed, the transition will be a smooth one, and your email subscription will stay intact. The website will likely be down for periods of time.

Along with the new name will come a new web address, stronger focus on the climate justice movement in Aotearoa [New Zealand] and lots of new sections to the website including links to getting active and access to lots of good solid climate justice related information as before. Please encourage your friends to sign up for email updates.

Thanks for all your interest, encouraging comments and especially your ACTION in the real world over the past three years.

See you on the other side in a few weeks!

Kia Kaha
