We’ve been showing this new video to supporters on board the Rainbow Warrior. It’s a reflection on what we’ve achieved with help from people like you. It’s a tribute to you and all of our supporters, and it’s a call to action.
The response to the video has been amazing. I’ve seen tears well up, I’ve seen standing ovations, and I’ve seen pride and a renewed desire to make a difference. People have felt inspired because it speaks to what we can achieve when we act together.
And now, more than ever, is the time when we need action. That’s why we're asking for your help to make sure this video is seen by a lot more people.
We need to inspire action because in their haste to drill, mine and sell NZ for short term gain, our Government is taking New Zealand in the wrong direction. It’s a direction that leads away from prosperity and away from the clean, safe lifestyle we want our kids to inherit.
It’s a direction that most people are uncomfortable with because it just doesn’t fit with the clean green and principled values we cherish and aspire to as New Zealanders.
But we have a choice. We can say yes to staying true to our clean green values and building a cleaner, smarter more prosperous New Zealand. And we can say no to deep sea oil drilling and fossil fuel expansion. Together we’ve done it before when we declared ourselves nuclear free. That went on to define us as a nation and it’s time to do it again.
That’s the message we’re taking around the country with the new Rainbow Warrior and it’s the message we’d like you to take into your community. 'We are in this together, and together we are fearless. We dream big dreams, and together we can change the world.'
And if we can get a TV version of this video played on prime time Television, it can help inspire thousands to stand up with us to help bring New Zealand back to its true course.
