Time to tell the MPs how you feel
Your rights to fish for food and recreation are still under threat!
Your beach access is also under threat!
This government continues to ignore the overwhelming outcome of it's own public consultation on the publics rights to access and harvest from the marine environment
Want to know what you can do about it? Read on!
THE TIME TO ACT IS NOW
Option4, a dedicated group of advocates for the non commercial fishing public, have been going head to head with the government over the last two years fighting against government proposals to privatise the recreational fishery, and erode your current
rights to fish.
Despite the fact that over 98% of submissions to the proposal rejected the governments privatisation agenda, it appears the public have been ignored by this Labour Government.
Option4 has embarked on a huge e-mail and letter writing campaign to make politicians aware of the publics views and the risks politicians face if they continue to ignore public opinion.
Now is the time to tell them what you will do with your vote if they do not recognise that your right to fish has precedence over commercial fishing interests.
Option4 have a ready-to-email letter to Members of Parliament at this address http://www.option4.co.nz/mpmailer.php Check it out, it will only take a few minutes!
It's an election, they want your vote and need to know how strongly you feel about this issue. There is no better time than now.
This campaign is already having a measurable affect, lets keep the pressure on them. Its an opportunity to put real heat on your representatives.
Make sure your children enjoy the same rights generations of New Zealanders have always considered a birthright.
Don't let this opportunity pass by, your rights, and the rights of your children are worth fighting for!
