  1. Cameron Slater is claiming that information is being released in order to paint a “lop-sided” picture of him. I suggest he goes to the GCSB event to learn how this can really happen to NZ citizens.

  2. Compelling stuff from some of our older activists and some new younger heroes for change.

    Anyone in any doubt that thinking ‘alls well’ is enough to bring about cognitive liberty got it hard and strong, only voting will make the crucial change .

    Good to see Megan Woods emphatic on Labour’s intent to put GCSB under full review. Labour hasn’t really addressed itself to a restorative process of democratic enablement rather it has kowtowed to US (and other) colonisation of the mind. That is why the War on (some) Drugs and the Surveillance Society have their nexus in the 1970’s. It is the same damn issue deeply compromising and leading to ‘corrupt governance’ and to pandering to fears where there should be none.
