Join the Fight to
Stop the Fast-Track Bill.

Now you've made your submission and there's more to do! Here are helpful next actions you can take.

TELL OTHER PEOPLE.

Talking to others about the Bill and what it means for communities, democracy and the environment is a seriously important action. If you want some info and some talking points, check out our FAQ & News page. 

PUT UP POSTERS, DROP OFF FLYERS.

You can download posters and flyers to print and put up in your community. 

Poster PDF.

Flyer PDF.

If you are a group that wants a bulk lot, we might be able to help with printing costs. Get in touch.

PUT A SIGN ON YOUR FENCE.

Do you have or know a good fence where a sign saying, "STOP THE FAST-TRACK BILL" could be put up?

Homemade signs are powerful. You could include www.stopthefasttrackbill.com on the sign too to direct people here.

WRITE TO OR GO SEE YOUR LOCAL COUNCILLORS.

Councillors, like many people, aren't yet fully aware of the implications of the Fast-Track Approvals Bill. 

Councils will wear the responsibility for any projects but will have no power over them. 

This is a very vulnerable position for councils and their communities to be in. 

You can point them to Clause 45(2)(a) which states that the local authority "has all the functions, powers, and duties in relation to a resource consent granted under this Act, as if it had granted the resource consent itself."

Councillors contact details are almost always listed on their council's website so it's easy to contact them.

WRITE TO YOUR LOCAL NEWSPAPER.

WRITE TO CHRISTOPHER LUXON.

Another essential and easy action. A letter to the editor not only tells readers why the Fast-Track Approvals Bill must be stopped but it also reminds journalists and editors that this is an important issue to their communities. 

Letters to the editor should be short (100-200 words), clear and to the point. 

You can find the email address to send it to by googling "Letter to the Editor" and the name of your local paper. 

Make sure you include your full name, editors want to know you're a real person before publishing you. If you use a name like "Concerned of Taranaki", you won't be published.

The buck stops with the PM. Shane Jones, Simeon Brown and Chris Bishop's actions are the Prime Minister Christopher Luxon's responsibility. 

Write to him and remind him that he is responsible for the impending destruction of our environment and erosion of democratic processes. 

Be firm but polite. Abuse doesn't win, collective strength does.
