Referendum 2009

Vote YES to the referendum.

Vote Yes

Help stop the violence against our ririki!

Front up and speak up on behalf of our children.

Vote Yes for the referendum.

Vote Yes to make your voice heard in the child discipline referendum…

Vote Yes to show you support a law that is working well. Good parents are not being criminalised.

Vote yes to show you believe that all children must not to be hit just as happens with adults and animals. The law is saying that ‘good parenting’ means you don’t have to hit children. Use other techniques.

Voting YES says you believe we can be a nation where children can grow up secure and confident, understanding limits and boundaries and behaving well – without physical punishment.

Let’s show our children that they are all taonga; that they are tapu-special- because they hold the whakapapa for the future.
