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 –
Almost immediately after sending the last announcement, the Keep Our Assets petition debacle (am I allowed to say that? I think we’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.
It’s a bit of a pain, but it’s got to be done. The immediate plan is to blitz the Hub on the Kelburn Campus between 11am and 1pm this coming Friday(the 17th). We’ll have some Keep Our Assets t-shirts and clipboards – all you need to do is turn up. So, if you think you’ll be free – even if you can only do half an hour – please send me an email ([redacted]@gmail.com) so that I’ll know to expect you. We’ll meet at 11am 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 – please try to make a bit of time for this extremely important cause.
