Petition to Retain Auckland Suffrage Memorial sign now

A petition asking the Auckland City Council to keep the Suffrage Memorial ‘in perpetuity’ in Khartoum Place has been launched by the National Council of Women of New Zealand (NCWNZ).

Margaret Wilson of Auckland Branch of NCWNZ, spoke of her frustration at having to battle to retain the memorial in Khartoum Place ‘yet again.’

“After several months of being sent from one committee to another without this issue being resolved, NCW believes it is time for the City Council to make a binding commitment to protect the memorial so that we are not forced to repeat this charade every few years,” Margaret said.

“Although the CBD Board has recently advised the NCW that at this time it has no immediate plans to progress plans for the redesign of Khartoum Place, a cloud of uncertainty is still hanging over it. We need a guarantee that it will be permanently retained in Khartoum Place,” Margaret said.

Dr Frances Townsend, NCW board member read a letter of support on behalf of NCWNZ National President Elizabeth Bang.

The National Council of Women intends to distribute the Suffrage Memorial Petition to all its member organisations and networks. The signatures will be presented to the September meeting of the Auckland City Council’s Arts, Culture and Recreation Committee asking the council to recommit to retaining the Suffrage Memorial in Khartoum Place ‘in perpetuity’.
