Republished from Radio New Zealand National: A few weeks back we heard from three of the country’s youngest politicians, and this week we’re speaking to three young people who are no less passionate about bringing about change through political actions but have chosen to do so in quite different ways. Finlay talks to Unite Union regional organiser Heleyni Pratley, who is also a member of Fightback; Jordan Williams, executive director of the Taxpayers’ Union; and Paul Young, Solutions and Strategy Researcher for Generation Zero. Produced by Jeremy Rose.
