Ban fireworks sales to the general public

We are concerned about the stress levels created around Guy Fawkes to animals, babies and some adults, also potential for injury to those who may not use fireworks appropriately. Surely if there are enough organised displays around the city, all who wish to enjoy fireworks could do so! Our aim is to lobby City council, politicians & ERMA/EPA (Environmental Risk Management Authority/Environmental Protection Agency) to disable the sale of fireworks to the general public. Please show your support!

  • John Stephen Hoadley Most New Zealanders have outgrown the gunpowder plot and the anti-Catholic bias it perpetrates. Now, setting off fireworks on GF Day (and three days before and after!) is no more than a display by immature young men and bored parents of small boys to show off. Grow up, please.

  • Helen Johnson Please please please, no more fireworks.
