On Tuesday morning we responded to the Government’s shady ‘Anadarko Amendment’ by putting out a joint statement of opposition signed by a small group of notable people and groups.
Then we put it online and invited more people to sign it, and the response has been like nothing we've ever seen!
We had more than 10,000 names in less than 24 hours and now, only three days later, the count has just gone past 20,000 http://goo.gl/lpWyO
That breaks all our records and the speed of the petition was so impressive on the first day that it was even mentioned in Parliament.
This is obviously something that New Zealanders are passionate about - protest at sea is part of our DNA. Simon Bridges and the Government will now be feeling very uncertain about their pro oil industry strategy, but let’s turn up the heat even more and go for 30,000 before the bill is voted in on Tuesday next week.
Please share the link on facebook now - 30% of the people who have signed have done so after seeing links in facebook - it REALLY works. Sign it here and share it on your wall: http://goo.gl/lpWyO
And a huge THANK YOU to everyone who has signed, shared, liked and tweeted - it's making a difference!
