    Today in the Auckland high court Speak up for women won their case against two councils (Palmerston North and Auckland) who cancelled their meetings after complaints from trans activists

    SUFW’s meetings were to discuss the proposed changes to to the Births, deaths, marriage and Relationships bill to allow gender self ID.

    4 councils in all cancelled their meetings. They are a peaceful feminist group.

    the verdict is a victory for the democratic right to debate proposed legislation

      Great news, sanity prevails. I wonder when the Births, deaths, marriage and Relationships bill to allow gender self ID comes up whether it will be a conscience vote.

    • KSaysHi 1.2

      Thank goodness. We live in crazy times so I doubt this is the end of it, mores the pity

    • Rosemary McDonald 1.3

      I don't know if anyone has mentioned this today… https://www.rnz.co.nz/news/political/445495/hate-speech-govt-plans-new-law-tougher-penalties… but it will be interesting to see if certain parties will continue their claims that any voiced or written concern about sex self ID amounts to actual "violence".

      Well done SUFW…we need to be able to talk about this.

      • Anker 1.3.1

        Yes I am concerned about this law.

        Given the requirements of the trans activists, I guess they could argue that not using personal pro nouns it is hate speech or saying there are only two biological sexes and it's not possible to change your sex, (like Maya Forstater did which lead to her losing her job) it is hate speech.

        • Rosemary McDonald 1.3.1.1

          Yes. And objecting to the expression "pregnant women"…because as we all should realise by now…. this excludes those who are pregnant who are not women. Because, like, men can be pregnant you know…

          I am making a quiet protest on this…any site or document or article that refers to "pregnant people" will automatically be assumed to be populated by biological fuckwits.

    • weka 1.4

      fantastic news.

    • I don’t think it will matter if it is a conscience vote. Most of labour and probably all the greens support the bill.

    from what I have heard the ministry of internal affairs is struggling to get its head around biological sex/ gender identity. There were even some opinions that the change could make it worse for trans, because they have to acknowledge that some women’s rights are protected in the human rights act, including public toilets etc, sport, single sex schools. Perhaps labour and the greens are scoring an own goal?

    SUFW seem to have a good handle on the issues. There meeting is happening right now in Palmerston North as a result of today’s court ruling

    Given we have an excessive number of doses surely NZ can donate the Pfizer vaccine to Fiji. Those Aussie vaccines should be hiffed

    A staggering 308 new infections were confirmed on Thursday – the highest daily rise so far. But now a social media storm is brewing over Australia's decision to donate thousands of AstraZeneca vaccines – which it won't give to the majority of its own population. RNZ Pacific's Christine Rovoi reports.

    I am absolutely livid on reading the piss poor excuses from the police from 2002 – 2010 in not laying charges against the Lake Alice child and adolescent unit staff headed by Dr Leeks.

    I want to know if a civil action case can be taken out against the police for not testing the evidence in court?

      I have not been able to establish how infectious the NSW visitor to Wellington was.

      Would how high the viral load was be more of a concern with the Delta strain?

      Covid might show up else where in NZ before Wellington.

      • Sabine 5.1.1

        If we are lucky he was not a spreader.

        And yes, it is quite possible that the virus could show anywhere, and / or wellington.

        let's hope we get lucky again.

        • Treetop 5.1.1.1

          Sydney is going from bad to worse. Brisbane has a few cases, Melbourne is pinging from NSW. I tell ya, the trans – Tasman bubble is trouble.

          • Sabine 5.1.1.1.1

            Yes, always thought that. Keep the borders closed until those that want a vaccine had one. Lets hope we get lucky.

            • Treetop 5.1.1.1.1.1

              Same here about being lucky. See how it goes across the ditch for those stuck in NSW. A learning experience when it comes to booking or taking a nice holiday. Visiting a sick relative or worse is another matter.

    Those with real courage in war are not the ones who obey orders, but the ones who defy orders.

    They are the real heroes.

    They will never be recognised with a medal.

    If they die during their incarceration and torture, as some did, their names will not be carved on public memorials.

    If they survive they will never be called to give a speech at ANZAC rememberances.

    Nicky Hager reviews a new edition of a 1939 classic

    Archibald Baxter’s classic 1939 book We Will Not Cease,

      Jenny how to get there, I would have liked to have seen your comment on open mike today.

      Hager needs to do a book on how Crown Law and the NZ police have seriously mismanaged complaints about the Lake Alice child and adolescent unit. Torture happened there as well and complainants were gagged.

      I cannot exclude deaths from ECT or paraldehyde injections being covered up.

      A group of lawyers need to do pro bono for survivors. It ALWAYS comes down to money for a legal fight.
