LIKE THEY HAVE FOR DUCK SHOOTERS!!!
SIGN BY PROXY HERE
To the House of Representatives, we, the undersigned, pursuant to the Citizens Initiated Referenda Act 1993, ask that an indicative referendum be held on the following question;
Should New Zealand stop using all cruel and inhumane poisons, such as 1080, brodifacoum, and PAPP, to kill wildlife, because these toxic substances inflict intense and prolonged, unjustifiable suffering on all animals, including native birds, pets, and livestock?

Most people are simply unaware of the extent of the torture, as MADAME SALAMI was, but when she realised she wrote to over 80 MPs and organisations, most of whom didn’t bother to respond, but the RNZSPCA issued this statement on 7th January 2019:
On the 7th February 2019 The Clerk of the House of Representatives approved the wording above, proposed by the FRIENDS OF SHERWOOD TRUST, for a question to be put to the people of New Zealand in a
Citizens Initiated Referendum
once 10% of the eligible voters, which amounts to at least 325,000, sign the PETITION within one year, as set out in the CIR Act 1993
Which has the provision for an extension of two months if the numbers are not met but the petition is still handed in – which we did on Monday 10th February:
and were notified officially on Monday 17th February that we then had until Friday 17th April to have the extra 288,000 signatures ready to hand over in Wellington:
However COVID-19 had other ideas and soon we were unable to continue to collect signatures and for people to even be able to post in what they had ~ hence the PETITION TO PARLIAMENT to extend the time for two months past the date that COVID restrictions are lifted:
AND allow for PROXY SIGNATURES – see link at the top of this page.
HELP US DEFEAT THESE CRUEL & INHUMANE POISONS
DONATE TO BNZ 02-0120-0067883-030
PLEASE IGNORE THE DATE ~ IT IS NO LONGER RELEVANT:
JUST KEEP COLLECTING SIGNATURES UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE & WE HAVE A DECISION FROM PARLIAMENT ABOUT PROXY SIGNATURES AND A NEW DEADLINE.

Working Hard To Enhance The Neighbourhood Since June 1990
NB – the date on the petition form is to be ignored – because since we could not present enough signatures by Monday 10th February, we had an extension of 2 months, to Friday 17th April 2020: and are now calling on PARLIAMENT to extend the deadline and allow for PROXY SIGNATURES.
