The Respect Our Community Campaign (ROCC) http://rocc.org.nz/
was set up in 2013, in opposition to the East West Link – a motorway proposed to be put through the communities of Mangere and Otahuhu. After we stopped that, we decided to keep our campaign going, and to keep working to empower our communities. We've been meeting monthly since then and have been active with a ton of stuff including ...
SOUL campaign (http://www.soulstopsha.org/
Submitting and giving evidence at hearings to ensure that we stop the proliferation of alcohol outlets in our area
Pushing for a new Mangere East Community Hub
Advocating for the community with new developments in the area eg: Mangere East Countdown
Keeping a close eye on the East-West Link
ROCC members have been discussing the prospect of putting up a ROCC ticket to stand as a team of advocates for our community in the 2016 Auckland Council elections in September next year. We would like to hear your opinions on this proposal.
