The homeless crisis is getting that bad in Auckland that people are dying because they have nowhere to live.

Unlike our “government”, Te Puea Marae is trying to do something practical for the homeless. Madeleine Chapman spent a week volunteering there, and wrote about it for The Spinoff. Note that The Warehouse will match donations made through Spinoff.

Inequality in NZ is the worst it’s been in a decade. Key’s response is pathetic. We need to vote to end suck-up economics. We need to be a better country than this.

An update on Te Puea Marae, a homeless teen cancer sufferer, and how to help.

I think we can all agree that Paula Bennett is the real victim here

Te Puea Marae, whose only “crime” in this the Brighter Future was to try and help the homeless, “has fears of ‘smear campaign’ “. Naturally Paula Bennett is the real victim here. And furthermore, it’s all Labour’s fault.

Paula Bennett leaking to smear again?

Has Paula Bennett leaked details of a police investigation into Te Puea Marae’s Hurimoana Dennis?

Update: Bennett has admitted that “her office” leaked. She should resign.

FIFY: Bennett too embarrassed to visit marae

Help Te Puea Marae help the homeless

The Marae providing practical support to the homeless in Auckland needs our help. You can donate at the Givealittle page here. It is shameful that this is needed in NZ, but there it is, this is what the Brighter Future looks like.

Housing should not depend on charity – but this is an emergency

Bravo to Te Puea Marae and their supporters – you are doing what needs to be done – and you are putting the government to shame.
