Email Petition

TO:
Kelvin Davis, Minister of Corrections
Andrew Little, Minister of Justice
Grant Robertson, Minister of Finance
Jacinda Ardern, Prime Minister

I CALL ON THE GOVERNMENT TO:
1) Repeal the Bail Amendment Act 2013 which led to an extra 1,500 prisoners held on remand.
2) Change sentencing laws to allow up to another 1,500 prisoners to be automatically eligible for early release instead of having to go to the Parole Board.   
3)  Reallocate the $1 billion that was to be spent on the new prison to improve the quality of life of all New Zealanders and implement long-term strategies to reduce the number of New Zealanders going to prison in the first place.

Don't Build the New Waikeria Prison (Email Petition to Ministers)

I CALL ON THE GOVERNMENT TO:
1) Cancel plans for the new mega-prison at Waikeria.
This can be done if the Government takes immediate action to cut the prison population. Therefore, I ask the Government to consider:
2) Reversing the effects of the Bail Amendment Act 2013 which led to an extra 1,500 prisoners held on remand;
3) Changing sentencing laws to allow up to another 1,500 prisoners to be automatically eligible for early release instead of having to go before the Parole Board.
These changes will allow the Government to cancel plans for the new prison and save over $1 billion of taxpayers’ funds in the process. I call on the Government to reallocate this funding to:
4) Improve the quality of life of all New Zealanders and implement long-term strategies to reduce the number of New Zealanders going to prison in the first place.
