Plane with a banner that says: It's time to double the refugee quota

World Refugee Day is coming up, and we have big plans. [1]

New Zealand's refugee resettlement quota was set at 800 places in 1987 and it has not increased in 28 years.

Meanwhile, the number and severity of conflicts forcing people to flee their homes has increased tenfold. Approximately 4.5 million refugees have fled Syria into neighbouring countries in the past 4 years, the equivalent of the entire population of New Zealand being displaced by war. [2]

The numbers are overwhelming, but we CAN and we MUST do something to help.

The Government has already received our petition to double the refugee quota, and many MPs from across the political spectrum have pledged their support. With World Refugee Day just around the corner, we are on the cusp of winning this one, but we need to make a grand statement to get their attention.

That is why we are going to FLY A PLANE over the sold-out All Blacks match in Eden Park this Saturday with a banner that says, "It's time to double the refugee quota."

We have 48 hours to raise $2500 to make this happen.

Will you contribute and be part of this momentous occasion, which will reach tens of thousands of people and force the Government to hear us?

We will also be carbon offsetting this action by sending a portion of the money raised to Rarakau Rainforest Conservation Project. [3]

Please note: Kick off for the All Blacks is at 7.30pm, but we'll be flying our plane around Eden Park while the sun is still out from 5pm when doors open. This way we'll capture the attention of punters as they head into the game.

  • Donation Policy

  • We want to be transparent and accountable about who we are, how we are funded and how we spend your donations - please get in touchif you've got a question or any feedback on how we present this information.  In short, we are a member led not-for-profit organisation working hard to bring democracy and fairness back to New Zealand. We model ourselves after our larger sister organisations such as GetUp and 38Degrees.

    Where does ActionStation get its money from?

    ActionStation is independent and member led - we don't accept money from government, political parties or big business.

    We rely on donations from our members to make our campaigns happen. From time to time we’ll ask our members to fund a specific campaign or a specific action (e.g. to pay for the costs of an advertisement or billboard). All donations generated by these are used for that specific project. If for any reason we are unable to spend the money on the action for which it was raised we give our members the option to get a refund, or to choose how they would like to have the money used instead.

    Since launching in 2014, we have also received some money from charitable trusts and foundations. The bulk of our start up funding came from Global Green Grants.

    We are a very lean organisation. Our staff team is small, with one sole purpose - to build and run winning campaigns on issues our members care about. Our operating budget is funded entirely by small donations from members.
