Why I’m running
I believe New Zealand is no longer a clean green country to admire. Our beautiful land is drenched in toxins that harm all life including the insects in the soil. The Outdoors Party are committed to cleaning up Aotearoa and banning chemicals that no longer have a place here. We want to breath fresh air, drink clean water, eat food free from chemicals. Be able to swim in your local river without the pollution. That is a right after all. Sadly this is not the case. It is time for a change and now NZ.
My community allows the manufacturing and supply of one of the most toxic chemicals around today. Sodium fluoroacetate has been in New Zealand since the 1950s. NZ use 90 percent of the world's supply. It is Inhumane, it has caused 60 years of death. There is no real data to say this is safe to human life. Exposure to 1080 in water can effect the unborn, fertility can cause malformation. They do not listen to petitions, referendums, I need to get into Parliment to be heard. Please vote for me.
