The Greens are stating they are “desperate” to collect the extra signatures and describe the petition as a debacle in an email sent to recruit more to the cause.

A couple of things â€“
Almost immediately after sending the last announcement, the Keep Our Assets petition debacle (am I allowed to say that? I think weâ€™re all thinking it!) came to my attention. The Keep Our Assets coalition desperately needs another 16,000 signatures to be collected in the next two months in order to force a referendum to stop further asset sales.Â
Itâ€™s a bit of a pain, but itâ€™s got to be done. The immediate plan is to blitz the Hub on the Kelburn Campus betweenÂ 11am and 1pm this coming Friday(the 17th). Weâ€™ll have some Keep Our Assets t-shirts and clipboards â€“ all you need to do is turn up. So, if you think youâ€™ll be free â€“ even if you can only do half an hour â€“ please send me an email ([redacted]@gmail.com) so that Iâ€™ll know to expect you. Weâ€™ll meet atÂ 11amÂ next to the sliding door going out to the main courtyard. It would be great to have a decent number of people wandering around the Hub â€“ please try to make a bit of time for this extremely important cause.
