We've launched our campaign under the banner Time for a Kiwi Head of State and yesterday Aucklanders had a chance to see it fly past.
It also featured in the news media and while that's helpful the campaign is first and foremost about communicating directly with New Zealanders. To win a referendum we need to let as many Kiwis as possible know about what we're proposing and why it's the better option.
Stuff were the first to pick up the story, the Herald and Newstalk ZB covered it briefly, TVNZ Seven Sharp covered it in depth. The international media has also picked up the story. Radio Australia, The Telegraph, The Mirror, and the BBC all covered it, as did news sites in PNG and Japan.
Thanks to all the people who have sent us their messages of support and thank you for donations which are continuing to roll in.
As the many news article's reported, "It's important people understand there is more to the royal visit than just photo opportunities, that there's actually an ongoing constitutional debate about what is best for New Zealand."
