National Distribution Union Release: Rod Donald Helped Shape our Political Landscape
Laila Harré - National Secretary
NDU National Secretary Laila Harré has described the death of Green Party Co-Leader Rod Donald as "a shocking blow to the causes he so strongly advocated".
The NDU extends aroha to Nicola, Holly, Emma and Zoe and Rod's Green Party colleagues.
Laila Harré said Rod had made more of difference to New Zealand in a too-short life than most even attempted.
"His leadership of the campaign for MMP and his key role in developing a thriving Green Party helped shape our political landscape.
"As the Government and Greens work to implement a successful Buy New Zealand campaign I know that every time I choose New Zealand products over imports I'll be marking one up for Rod.
"Rod had a passion for social and environmental causes. He also had a real love of the political process itself and that was an important asset for the Green Party. Rod is irreplaceable and will be missed deeply by his friends in the international movement for peace and justice."
