TAKE PART IN THE PURPLE REVOLUTION

 

Events have proven that without BCIR our democracy is slowly dying. Our rights are being smothered by the State.

 

Unite in this Purple Revolution and help achieve BCIR

 

The ruling elite say three-yearly elections are all we are good for. We are too stupid to be trusted with the important decisions that affect our lives.

GOALS

By adopting purple we the people of New Zealand can create irresistible pressure for change.

First priority: Binding Citizens Initiated Referenda (BCIR)

The preservation of our democracy depends on it. If we are to have true democracy,  the right to use our vote in referenda to either accept or reject decisions made by our parliament is essential

FURTHER POSSIBILITIES ONCE BCIR IS IN PLACE

Secondary objective: The reform of parliament.

Subject to the people’s will, the power of the executive, the caucus whipping system and putting party political agendas before electorate wishes, could be ended and other reforms introduced.

Last objective: Restoring citizenship

Our freedoms rely on more than our parliamentary system. Each New Zealander could, with the right information and will, enjoy and participate in the full rights and responsibilities of citizenship.

People Power (Inc) will have succeeded when:

  • As its first priority, the Purple Revolution sees BCIR introduced and operating before 2014
  • BCIR is used, along with other initiatives, decided by the people, to enact parliamentary reform
  • The long term future of ‘direct’ democracy and the full rights of citizenship in New Zealand is assured.
