Would you like a chance to talk to members of the public about climate change. It's challenging work, and first and foremost you have to be a good listener. The @tu_future crew will be doing this on Wednesdays from now. Please get in touch if you are keen to join us.
Tuesday October 13th, 12:30, NZ Parliament Lawn. Come and mark the 100th Day of the #etu4future #ClimateStrike vigil. Meet hunger striker David and talk with us about holding the next government to account.
@NZGreens @350nz @GenZeroNZ @_chloeswarbrick @fff_tui @SS4CNZ2019
Yesterday at #NZParliament, #XR and #ClimateStrikes combined. Note that the vigil continues: you can join us any day, between 11 and 2, at the Dick Seddon statue. Get in touch to get involved.

‘Hunger’ is such an emotive word. My hunger strike is obviously a hunger for food. It is designed to convey urgency. It embraces some sacrifice and offers up a fundamental liberty for something important. But what else am I and … Continue reading
The only conversations I had on the front steps today were with people I knew well already. Sue supported me in her gentle and amicable way; Andrew, dear friend and fellow therapist; Claire, therapist too (we are collectively raising the EMOTIONAL … Continue reading
A tougher day. I’ve lost my sleep, one of the things I can usually count on to carry me along. Gone! My energy is shifting too. Few reserves. I’m reminded of my more carbon oblivious days when international travel was … Continue reading
It is a little sobering to know that these reflections posted online live in perpetuity in the online universe. Yet doing this hunger strike is both very personal, as well as political, and it seems important to say more about … Continue reading
