Will you call your MP?

You can call your local electorate MP and let them know you want our democracy cleaned up. 

Find a list of MPs, their phone numbers, and some talking points below.

If we keep track of which MP you are calling, then we can do three things:

  • Track who is being called, and the impact of this action across the country;
  • Spread the impact of this campaign, e.g. if 50 of us call our local MPs we will have a story to tell the media; and
  • Follow up with you to hear how your call goes, and whether you think this was an effective tactic.

So please use the form below to let us know which MP you plan to call

25 PLEDGE TO CALLS
50 pledge to calls

Will you call your MP? If so, please tell us which one.

Here are some suggested talking points:

  • Congratulate your MP on their election success.
  • Let them know that you were one of 2132 New Zealanders who published an open letter in the Herald last week.
  • Tell them that we want to see concrete action taken to address threats to our democracy (such as establishing a high calibre, non-partisan Royal Commission to investigate the workings of government, restoring democracy to Christchurch by handing back leadership to elected local representatives, ensuring our academics and community leaders can speak out freely on matters of public importance, increasing and securing funding for high quality public interest news broadcasting and increasing protection for freedom of information).
  • Ask if they saw the ad and offer to email them a copy of the open letter (you can download a copy here).

    I called Amy Adams off. She’s now Minister of Justice, as well as having been very involved in the canning of ECAN. I spoke to an office worker who assured me Amy would agree with my concerns, and said she’d pass them on. I’m not sure if this counts as ‘calling the MP’ – just a start :)

    Prime Minister John Key.


    I’m one of the 2132 Kiwis who published the open letter in the Herald and I want to know – 1. To ensure our democracy is protected, when a high calibre non-partisan Royal Commission investigate the workings of our Government and 2. What structures will be instituted to further protect freedom of information in New Zealand?

    I look forward to receiving your reply,

    Sincerely,

    Piet Radford

    Dear Ms Tolley,


    I am a resident of Gisborne and I am writing to ask what you intend to do to make sure the serious issues raised during the election regarding Judith Collins, ‘Whaleoil’ and the rest so called Dirty Politics are investigated and cleaned up properly. I am also concerned that the Prime Minister has not been honest with regard to the GCSB, spying on us nor his dealings with the bloggers.


    As both a constituent of your East Coast electorate and a citizen of New Zealand I have grave concerns about the way our government apparently operated in it’s last term. Can you give me an idea of how you will act with regard to calls for full and open investigations of these matters ? In my opinion, nothing less than a full Royal Commission with it’s terms established independently will restore the confidence I or many New Zealander have in our government and democracy.


    I look forward to your response and thoughts on these serious issues.
