I’m MCing the Auckland National Day of Action against the bill – Saturday 27th July. Gather at Aotea Square, 2pm.

You simply can not as NZers allow ANY Government this level of control over their citizens. Brothers and sisters, this isn’t a left wing, or right issue, it’s a NZ issue and we must come together with one voice and say – no!

This law represents the largest erosion of civil liberties since the 1951 Waterfront lockout – if you’re not angry yet, you’re not paying attention. This is the 21st Century Stasi with all the horror that brings where we are all considered guilty and are all under 24 hour surveillance.

I for one won’t allow my democracy to quietly goose step towards a Police state under the lidless eye of American intelligence for US corporate interests, and dammit it – neither should you!

Protests all over the country this Saturday – meeting in Auckland this Thursday. Stand up NZ, stand up!

Auckland – Aotea Square – 2pm-4pm
Hamilton – Garden Place – 2pm-4pm
Napier – Memorial Square – 2pm-4pm
Wellington – Cuba St Bucket Fountain (2pm) then march to The Beehive (3pm) for speakers – 2pm-4pm.
Nelson – iSite, Halifax St – 2pm-4pm
Christchurch – Bridge of Remembrance – 2pm-4pm
Dunedin – The Octagon – 2pm-4pm

  1. National obviously think it is better to feared than to be fair. Hope people turn out in their thousands.

    • The for-profit and state intelligence agencies (the lines of which are seriously blurred in this country) will have 2 goals;

      1. To suppress this to the maximum extent possible and,
      2. If they fail at step 1, to have the events controlled/controllable by their embedded pretend-activist agents.

      From major unions to activist movements, central figures who give all outward appearances of being committed activists, are in fact intelligence gatherers and purveyors who operate with a complete absence of moral fibre and ethics, to identify participants and bring supporters out of the woodwork, then pass their data on to their home countries.

      It isn’t hard to pick who they are over time but it would shock mainstream New Zealand to know, as they are often presented by the mainstream media as being legitimate when they are in fact not.

      If you want to know who IS legitimate; look for who is actively smeared by the mainstream media and who has their lives systematically dismantled and constantly interfered with by the state and their agents.

      The good news is that despite all the above, the one thing they cannot cope with is groundswell. That’s why they were so slow to react to Occupy and other movements; any unanticipated turn of events results in a very protracted response as they are forced to endure the downtime of information filtering up their hierarchy and instructions filtering back down it again to their chumps on the ground.

      Their worst nightmare is the unexpected and unanticipated; which instantly makes all their mechanisms of control and surveillance redundant.

      Therefore if you want to come out on top; embrace the unexpected. Act on impulse. Learn to love the ‘spark’, that changes events swiftly and leaves the infrastructure of corruption, hapless in our wake, eating dust.

      Solidarity to all victims of the GCSB and their like, worldwide.

        Sorry, but that just generates paranoia, which is not helpful at this time. Be specific, or at least clearer about who you mean.

          On the contrary, nothing creates paranoia like activists accusing each other of being spooks. In fact, one of the best ways to spot spooks is to look for activists who go around accusing others of being spooks.

          Both corporates and the NZ state (and possibly others) pay people to spy on activists in this country. A number of such spies were exposed during the Save Happy Valley campaign against the Cypress Mine near Westport, including Rob Gilchrist, who was paid by the Police to spy on environmental and animal rights groups for more than 10 years. No Way is quite right to remind us that the most effective way to deal with spying is to be aware of it, without leaping at shadows, and to adopt organisational methods which render it irrelevant.

  2. About time – well done to those who organised this!

    BTW – is anyone going to ask Nicky Hagar for a comment about this?

    Especially, considering he wrote a brilliant expose about the UKUSA Intelligence Alliance in 1996! A whole book!

    Called “Secret Power”.

    Can someone ask him for a comment, please? He was onto this 15+years ago!

    Shame on Shon-Key, after all the assistance this country gave him as a boy – no questions asked; healthcare, education, welfare, a house to live in.

    Deport him to his mansion in Hawaii where he can hang out with Obama on the beach together and swap secrets.

    Shame.

  3. All we all have to do is cc the Prime Minister into ALL our emails and then the GCSB wouldn’t have to spy on us. Maybe we could BCC the GCSB as well to save them the trouble. A few million emails a day would keep them busy enough! Let’s do it!
