On Thursday, 7 July at midday, we delivered our Make it our Right to Repair petition to the Minister for the Environment, Hon. David Parker with 12,901 signatures!
We were supported by MPs Hon Eugenie Sage, Ricardo Menendez, Chloe Swarbrick and Helen White, as well as Dr Paul Smith from Consumer NZ and James Griffin from Sustainable Business Network. There was a mini-Repair Café on-site, with Bea Lorimer from Heke Designs and Richard Barter from Bike Kitchen. It was a day of celebration and inspiration, imagining how Aotearoa would look if we had the Right to Repair.
With thanks to the Auckland Central City Library for accommodating us in their space. A huge thank you to Greenpeace, who held our petition on their community website, and to everyone who took the time to sign and share in support!
