  • We Need Your Help     31 March 2019

    We're about halfway to our signature target but need an additional 15,000 signatures.

    Our deadline is 14th June to make the referendum happen with this year's local body elections.

    Without the signatures, we don’t get to vote.

    Without your help, we won’t get the signatures.

    You can help us by:

    1. Providing an additional donation to our Givealittle page (https://givealittle.co.nz/cause/remove-the-monopoly-in-west-auckland). We'll use the money for advertising and to pay people to help collect signatures

    2. Volunteering your time to help collect signatures with us

    We think we'll need about $8,000 and 250 hours of volunteer time to get the job done.

    If West Auckland wants the chance to vote in October 2019, we need to reach our goal in the next 12 weeks.

    Please do what you can to help, TODAY.

  • 12,000 Signatures or 43% of Target reached to date...     21 December 2018
    Main image

    With very limited resources and a team consisting of community members giving up their spare time, we're going to end the year with approximately 12,000 signatures or 43% of the amount needed to force a vote on The Trusts' monopoly over West Auckland. Not bad for a bunch of working Mums, Dads and other time-poor members of West Auckland.

    The reality is if we had more people and money for signature collection, marketing and promotion (as well as access to Countdown supermarkets!), we'd be able to get this done in a third of the time. The community wants change. That is clear. Unfortunately, the reality is, we have to work within our means.

    As this campaign is by no means finished, we're extending the time that our Givealittle page will be up and will be hoping for more donations from the people of West Auckland to help us to carry on the fight into the new year.

    In the meantime, we'll be taking a short breather for a week or two, will probably buy some overpriced alcohol and visit some average bars out West.

    From all of us at WALTAG, have a safe Xmas and a big thanks for your support to date. Without you, we wouldn't have got this far and if you do feel like making another donation, it would be greatly received.

  • Off to a good start!      27 October 2018

    With little resources at our disposal, we're definitely making an impact and now have over 33% of the signatures we need to force a vote on The Trusts' monopoly. All of this done with our tribe of volunteers and supporters like you.

    The support from the community has been massive indicating that West Auckland really does want change. We've still got a long way to go thou but we're well on our way! Many thanks to those of you that have given a donation. Without you, we couldn't make it happen.
