g.blog is a community for all Green Party members to share our thoughts with the New Zealand electorate. Basically the premise is that anyone who is a Green Party member can post anything they like so long as it conforms to the rules.
g.blog shows the Green Party promoting debate and gives another vehicle to members who like writing, making videos or photography or who have good ideas to share with the country to do so. Maybe that might seem a contrast with some other political parties that try to manage the debate and focus it very tightly on just one or two celebrity politicians. But, we trust that open debate is good, and we’re hoping this might be an avenue for some exciting new policy proposals, debates and stories.
What we’d really like to hear would be local stories and events, adventures on the campaign trail, news and ideas that don’t get covered other places.
