On Thursday last week hundreds attended a public meeting in Mt Albert, and on Saturday thousands of people marched in 11 centers all round NZ to protest against John Key’s spying Bill. More marches are planned, and the next ones (with more time to organise) will probably be bigger. Key’s response?
John Key said protesters were either politically aligned or “misinformed”…
That’s a very arrogant way to dismiss thousands of New Zealanders.
Someone should ask our PM which category Dame Anne Salmond falls in to. Dame Salmond – as if anyone needs reminding – is a distinguished Professor, noted historian and author, and New Zealander of the Year. She addressed the public meeting in Auckland. Is she politically aligned or is she misinformed?
Someone should ask our PM which category Dr. Rodney Harrison QC falls in to. Dr. Rodney Harrison QC presented the Law Society’s excellent submission on the GCSB Bill. He addressed the public meeting in Auckland. Is he politically aligned or is he misinformed?
Someone should ask our PM which category Dr Rodney Harrison QC, and Professor Jane Kelsey, and all the other excellent speakers who addressed the various marches fall in to. Are they politically aligned or are they misinformed?
Someone should ask our PM which category the Law Society and the Human Rights Commission fall in to. They have both spoken out about the spying Bill in the strongest of terms. Are they politically aligned or are they misinformed?
Or are they maybe, just maybe, perfectly well informed and speaking out to defend the right to privacy from a government that wants to take it away from us for no good reason?
