As weka commented on yesterday’s Open Mike:

Kia ora Green Party whānau,

Do you want to be part of your AGM first hand? And see all the action as it happens?

This year there has been unprecedented interest in our annual conference so we are doing something special to bring the conference to all of you, our members.

For the first time we will be live streaming large chunks of the action. You can watch our new Co-leader be elected, as if you were here – head over to https://livestream.com/nzgreens [2]

Watch my opening speech at 10am Saturday 30 May.

Watch the our new Co-leader be announced at 2pm Saturday 30 May.

And last but certainly not least – watch our new Co-leader’s first speech where he will set out his vision for our party at 11.30 Sunday 31 May.

It’s all on this weekend, if you can’t make it in person, make sure you tune in and join us for this special occasion.

I’m excited and I hope you are too.

Arohanui,

Metiria Turei

    We still however have a little way to go with climate change.

    Climate change is a top priority for us, and for the world.

    As a movement we have succeeded in putting climate change on political and public agenda.

    Tomorrow we will publically launch our climate change campaign at this conference.

    I have my fingers crossed that the strength of our campaign will force a capital gains tax slash child poverty-style back-down from National also.

    Imagine if before the Paris conference later this year National is forced to commit to an ambitious emissions reduction target because we have built the movement and momentum for real change.

    The ball is in our court and I know all of you here will be doing all you can to make sure we win on climate change soon.

    It is a hallmark of us as a party. The perpetual push for change, often against the odds.

    We are the only party with courage and solutions to do what is needed, rather than what is convenient, and we are buoyed by the overwhelming public response and call for action.
