Are you sick of broken political promises? Have you ever wondered how to really make your vote count?
"In our system of democracy it is not possible however, for one or two parties in Parliament to implement major constitutional change on their own. Introducing a new written constitution for New Zealand is a change of such magnitude, that it would need the cooperation of all of the parties in Parliament, as well as the public." “the only way to make referendums ‘binding’ is to somehow make the enactment setting them up as a ‘higher law’ than ‘ordinary’ parliamentary enactments." Professor Geddis

It is time for us to take direct responsibility for making a more ADVNZD society.
ADVNZD is the means through which New Zealanders (tangata whenua) communicate our requisite for a return to democracy where referendums are binding, representatives are bound to common law and parliament is limited by a constitution for and by the people. We do this by bringing transparency as to which political candidates have contracted to perform this standard.
There are several historical precedents proving that this approach can work. We already have the agreement in principle from three minority party leaders. This fund raiser is to help us lauh the website and imlement the necessary systems to be accept membership and manage communications.
