Please email the MPs today before 2pm


Families Children and Parents TogetherPlease swamp the MPs inboxes this morning with emails:

Subject line: Social Security (Benefit Categories and Work Focus) Amendment Bill

Emails: copy and paste and put into BCC

 Ideas for Content: Please put in your own words


If we swamp the MPs inboxes then the main thing to have in your email is:

We respectfully urge you NOT to vote for the Bill at the Second Reading if it contains the harmful and discriminatory Social Obligations, sanctions and work focus provisions.

In 1877 New Zealanders lost the freedom to educate our children at home without applying for permission. Our forefathers let us down by not standing up for their rights.

In 2013, will we be the generation that begins to lose the freedom to preschool our own children, to make our own decisions about health care, or to invest our time in our families above a job?

We say NO

Let us protect the children of Beneficiaries

Because this could extend to ALL children

if this passes



Please feel free to repost, forward or pass on  this email

Please do so with the whole post. Thankyou
