Christchurch Convention Centre: another taxpayer subsidy for business
The awarding of the Christchurch convention centre contract raises more questions than it answers, said the Green Party today. The National Government today announced that Plenary Conventions New Zealand, a consortium of Plenary Group, Ngai Tahu Property and Carter Group, has been selected as the preferred development consortium to build the Convention Centre. French company Accor has been selected as the preferred operator.

The Green Party plan will change that."This plan is about building a smarter greener economy that really works for all New Zealanders."Under the Green Party plan, regions will be able to bid for projects that best serve their transport needs, whether road, rail or a port project."That contrasts with National, which has indulged in naked

Amnesty International has criticised Fiji's human rights record and called on its government to play fair and respect human rights in run up to the September Fijian elections."We welcome the first election since the Bainimarama coup, but the Green Party has concerns over how free and fair it will be," Green Party global affairs spokesperson, Kennedy Graham, said today."Under the Bainimarama regime there continues to be breaches of fundamental human rights, with repression of opponents of the regime, trade unions, and the media."Fiji workers have lost the right to strike under current draconian legislation, and trade union officials are being intimidated and hara
