Campaign for one million SMS to extend GE moratorium in New Zealand
A national campaign has been launched to generate a "virtual march" of a million New Zealanders in favour of extending the current GE moratorium.

Take 5 is a campaign using a mix of text messages and the internet to give all New Zealanders a polling booth at arms reach and a chance to personally have their say.

“We want to create a “virtual march” of a million New Zealanders that will make the government sit up and listen to the strength of feeling for extending the GE moratorium.” said Take 5 organiser Greg Menendez.

Postcards that will guide New Zealanders on how to vote via text messaging from their mobile phone or go online to
do it are being handed out. The postcards will be distributed nationwide and supported by billboards in the main
centres portraying a baby being fed by a rubber-gloved scientist’s hand with the caption “Rug Rat or Lab Rat.”

“The Take 5 campaign will give an opportunity for all New Zealanders to let the Prime Minister know what they think about this unrelenting move towards releasing GE and how it is important that we take another 5 years to be really sure it is the right thing to do,” said Mr. Menendez.
