Students needing financial support to impact our legal system

Auckland

On Tuesday 17th May 7 current AUT LAWS776 students, Kirra Havemann, Emma Moon, Teresa Tawara, Jasmine Wright, Jackson Somers, Don Kusalei Mudara Beneragama and myself, Danielle will be presenting a petition on the front steps of Parliament.

The opportunity arose from volunteering with Sunday Blessings, an AUT affiliated community group. We compliment our grass roots community service by driving for law and policy reform to divert all edible retail food surplus from the bin, to distributors like Sunday Blessings.

Over 2 semesters, 10 students have spent hundreds of hours researching arguments that challenge our current (we believe) discriminatory food systems, utilising international and domestic human rights law. Presenting our petition next to Chlöe Swarbrick in Parliament is step 1 of our mission, followed by a gathering with Marama Davidson and others, then presenting of our research through submissions that will be online and available to the public.

7 of these 10 students are travelling to Wellington, and we need help to pay $1351.49, (plus $67 charged by Give a Little), the flight costs for 5 of the students.

We have public support from the Chief Commissioner Prof Paul Hunt (https://www.hrc.co.nz/news/government-must-make-use-its-human-rights-toolkit-tackle-food-insecurity/), guidance from human rights expert Prof Kris Gledhill & UN human rights lawyer Dr Tony Ellis and many NGO’s.
