Big Turn Out for #StepItUpNZ Progressive Workshops

Several members of our media team had the pleasure of attending the inaugural #StepItUpNZ workshop series at Auckland University this past weekend. The event brought together a who’s-who of environmental activism and digital media in New Zealand and we scored a couple of great interviews.

Firstly, us interviewing Generation Zero founder and StepItUp organiser Kirk Serpes (@KirkSerpes) about the event:

…and this must-watch interview with ex Green Party leader Jeanette Fitzsimons where we discuss current political issues in New Zealand including the new surveillance bill being rammed through Parliament, and the fall-out from the Dirty Politics scandal.

Other speakers included Roger Fowler from Kia Ora Gaza, Simon Oosterman, Sue Bradford, Chris Hay, Nico Ward, Giovanni Tiso and Russell Brown.

Protesters Make An Appearance On-Stage At National Party Campaign Launch

It’s just priceless how they air the very beginning of Sue Bradford’s sentence then blatantly edit out the entire substance of it. Nice job MSM!!!78
