A group of Young Labour activitists are on the road on their Clarion Tour. A van load are travelling from Auckland down south for 12 days, meeting with other Labour activists on the way taking part in a load of community and political activities. The Clarion Tour started in 2004, with, if memory serves me right a young Jacinda Ardern in charge.
The Waikato Times caught up with this year’s group yesterday. As Eric says in the article the idea is to get involved in grassroots community projects. There has been some awesome stuff so far including at a kindergarten, riding for the disabled and a familiy centre.
Its great to see this kind of grassroots work, just as we have seen from the Te Tai Tonga Poneke Labour Branch’a random acts of labourness. It gives an old fella a warm glow.
