Coalition to Stop the GCSB Bill – Urgent Public Meeting this Thursday 25th July, 7pm at Mt Albert War Memorial Hall (Cnr New North Road and Wairere Ave)
– Dr Rodney Harrison QC – who presented the Law Society submission to
– Kim Dotcom – the most high profile victim of illegal GCSB spying
-Thomas Beagle – from Tech Liberty – concerned with civil liberties
-and now Dame Anne Salmond
The government is due to report the bill back to parliament late this week so this meeting comes at a critical time.
Please share and spread the word as only social media can.
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!
