The purpose of this petition is to give publicity to a shameful act perpetrated on a significant number of NZ senior citizens and residents. Section 70 of the NZ Social Security Act discriminates unfairly against many NZ pensioners. For example, an American friend who came to NZ has become my partner and lives with me in Auckland. Because she receives an American pension, the NZ Ministry of Social Development says I cannot continue to receive a New Zealand one. For me to become eligible to receive a NZ pension again, my American friend would have to leave me or we could both leave NZ. But this is not about me. It is about all of us, the thousands of NZ resident pensioners who suffer a similar or related penalty because of this appallingly bad law. Too many people are not aware because it does not directly affect them. On behalf of all victims, I am seeking as much support as possible from all people. From all people everywhere who are offended that a shocking law like this could be passed and applied in this otherwise fair minded and decent country. It is sad to say that our government is unlikely to fix this without a big push. So that is what this is all about, building for a big push. Please help us by giving us your support. It costs nothing and names are not revealed publicly unless a comment is left. Thank you
