Demanding the government adopt an industrial-scale state house building programme

Housing groups are building a campaign to push the government into adopting an industrial-scale state house building programme. It follows the rejection of the proposal by the Minister of Housing Megan Woods in response to a letter signed by 28 organisations.

A petition has been set up and we are encouraging everyone to sign and share with family and friends through social media.

The petition is here.

So far we have four posters prepared for the campaign – see below – and we are inviting Daily Blog readers to

  • Help circulate the posters via email and social media and
  • To have a go at designing your own poster for the campaign.

 

The themes we are working with are:

Or write your own theme on your own poster.

Please send your posters to johnminto@orcon.net.nz and we will put them on the Daily Blog.

In April we will ask Housing Minister Megan Woods to judge the posters and pick her favourite. She has had a lot of experience avoiding housing affordability issues and ducking responsibility for housing struggling families so will be the ideal judge.

If she declines, the winning poster will be selected by The Daily Blog Editor Martyn Bradbury.

We don’t have a prize in mind yet but we are open to suggestions.
