The Capital Connection is our commuter rail service between Palmerston North and Wellington. It's under threat because National refuses to fund it in the same way as all other public transport. It could be gone by June 2015 if we don't convince the Government to prioritise this important service. You can join the campaign to Save the Capital Connection by clicking on the links below.
National's first act after the election was to attack the rights of working people. The consequences are already being felt with rogue employers pushing the boundaries and undermining vulnerable employees.
The Government plans to reduce the number of state houses in Palmerston North by 500 and to privatise much of our social housing. They say there is no need for it. Yet hundreds of people live in cars, garages and squeezed into homes not fit for multiple families. We must work together to keep our social housing.
