Also via the Herald, MPs are coming under pressure not to support Louisa Wall’s marriage equality bill, which has it’s first reading this week. Because no one really makes money out of gay people marrying, or not marrying, this is one of those rare opportunities when your local MP will actually care what you think, and if they only receive messages from people opposed to marriage equality it could swing some votes.
So here’s a list of where New Zealand MPs currently sit on the issue, and here’s a list of their contact details. I’d recommend contacting your electorate MP (although mine is Grant Robertson, who is probably not soft on this issue but is probably sick of hearing from me), and/or a list MP who stands in your electorate, and/or a list MP for whichever party you vote for who is currently undecided.
Have at it.
