We are ordinary Kiwis standing up for something we believe in. We vote left, right, or somewhere in the middle. We are the farmer or fisherman keeping track of the rural economy (and the weather), the city lawyer or business owner following the ins and outs of political decision-making, the young parent at home with the kids or the pensioner home alone – listening to a friendly voice from the outside world. We are expats and homebodies, young and old and in between – and we share a common belief.
We believe that our public broadcaster is precious and valuable, a taonga that belongs to all of us, and in which we trust. We want to protect and nurture it, and keep it safe from commercial interests. It matters to us.
