Issued 1 September 1998
Te Hikoi mo te Tumanako mo te Rawakore / the Hikoi of Hope has begun ! Below are the routes which will be taken during the first week, but some reminders first.
1) For those of you planning to travel to Wellington for the I October and the arrival of the hikoi at Parliament, Tranzrail are offering discounts on ferry and rail travel. To book, you must ring 0800 878 898, not your usual Tranzrail booking agent. There are special conditions applying to these bookings.
2) Hikoi t-shirts (sizes S to XXXL are $17-95, larger sizes are available on special order at $25-00 each), bumper stickers ( $2-00, available in Maori or English) are available from the Anglican Resource Centre in Wellington - fax 04 499-1360; order forms are also available from the Hikoi web-site, see signature following ours at the end of this message for that url.
3) There are five Hikoi of Hope Backgrounder sheets - real jobs, housing, health, poverty and education. These sheets are an excellent summary of the situation in Aotearoa / NZ in each topic area, and explain clearly why the Hikoi of Hope is so necessary.
We have paper copies here at PMA, and are happy to send you a photocopy on receipt of your postal address.
