The Ministry of Social Development posted new figures yesterday showing a massive rise in the number of vulnerable families in urgent and serious need of social housing.

These figures are the result of this Government's policies that have left one in four of our children in poverty.

Business-people vote Green too ... Viv Kerr: "The Greens’ decision-making is transparent. I was a really new member when they developed a new policy on the Christchurch earthquake, and I thought it was cool that they asked for feedback from members on that. The Greens walk the walk.”

Eli Kerin Votes Green: "....The Green Party respects our environment and aims to protect it; does not believe we can have continual growth in wasteful consumerism without destroying our environment; and believes in social justice and democracy – and practises those values in the way it is organised”.

Going for Green: Christina Gibb (Mature Green) "I thought right I must join the Greens – the only one that stands for the things I stand for. It’s the whole social justice thing, the commitment to the Treaty and to Maori rights, and to creating a green economy and green jobs.”
