The smaller islands of the Pacific are our siblings and cousins. Our size compared to Europe, US or China is irrelevant. Our size in comparison to these smaller nations, so often overlooked by so much of the rest of the world, is what matters. They need us to not only do what we can - & we can - but to raise our voice in their cause.
From the Green Party of Aotearoa New Zealand:
Discontent with New Zealand and Australia is everywhere at the 45th Pacific Islands Forum. John Key cannot hide behind the flawed logic of ‘NZ is too small to effect change’ when Pacific Leaders are explicitly calling NZ out for his lack of action.
Our plan will carbon neutrality for New Zealand, cut taxes for business and put money back into households - but also help the Pacific. greens.org.nz/climateplan #Green2014
