Dear option4 Subscribers
Thank you all for your support for option4.

We have posted the first part of our option4 draft submission which
you can read on the website at
option4 Soundings Submission
Please click on the link, read the submission and respond. We need your
feedback and comments.
Newsflash - Submission Closure Date Extended!!!
The Ministry of Fisheries, in their wisdom, have extended the deadline
for submissions out to December 20th.
We would like to thank all of those supporters who have already requested
the option4 Submission booklets and gone out there to assist people
to make their submission - great effort from you all! Keep up the good
work. Every submission counts.
For those of you who have not yet requested submission books, we would
encourage you to do so. Do not think that we expect you to fill up each
submission book. Remember, if you were to assist 10 or 12 people to
make their submission, this makes a difference.
To have 1 or more booklets mailed to you immediately please go here
Get out to all the organisations and sports clubs to tell them what
is going on and help their members to make their submissions. Persuade
their management committees to put submission books where they are prominent
and visible - on the bar counter and in the lobbies on a table. Get
out there and make it happen. This is a fight for our fundamental human
rights - do not drop the ball on this one.
Thank you to all those expatriate Kiwis in Australia, UK, Europe, USA,
South East Asia, Africa and the Middle East who have made submissions
through the option4 website. We are really in your hands in terms of
connecting with other expat Kiwis. Please, where you can, contact and
connect with other expats and help them to make their submissions.
For those of you resident in NZ with family, friends and business colleagues
living and working overseas, email them and encourage them to go to
your website to make their submissions. Bring it on expats! You do not
want to be coming back to retire in NZ to discover the unthinkable i.e.
holding a weak right with a diminishing access to our fisheries. (Remember
the TV add - "Granddad, what did you do to stop it?")
Bumper stickers are also available to promote community awareness and
to raise funds to sustain this initiative. You can order them from your
Keep up the good work!
