Our Government is shrewdly laying siege to the NZ environment and people, under the increasingly shrill mantra of, 'we have to make more money' by exploiting and extracting anything and everything. The earth our great sustainer as you know is under relentless assault, even as we intuitively realize we are at multiple tipping points within the magnificence of the straining biosphere.

With the state sell off of public assets, insidious security and intelligence breaches, super secret trade deals like the Trans Pacific Partnership Agreement, corporate encroachments and lobbying, secret military accords harmonization of Laws with the USA, we the citizens of NZ are on the back foot.

Low wages for workers, corporate infiltration into city councils, pharmaceutical corporations advertising directly on TV. No labeling of food sources, ingredients processes, GE and GMO's, additional chemicals in municipal drinking water, failure to keep city air clear, unsafe food and water, unsustainable farming, destructive mining, corporate take-over of education, health and prisons public services and the TPPA to bind it all in, all have the common theme of locking down our collective future.

And more and more issues are being thrown at 'we the citizens.'  If we do not come together, and intelligently organize and unite the country by calling the government to account, it will only accelerate and get far worse!  We do not need prophetic statements to tell us where this could all go.

The 1st of September Nationwide rally aims to cover all of the many issues that people see as important concerns and that are both affecting their lives as well as our countries future, especially our kids.





  • Government –  professional corporate lobbying denies us of our democratic voice
  • The TPPA a vehicle for corporate control of NZ's Sovereignty and Laws
  • Banks and unequal wealth - compound interest - rate fluctuations
  • Media – Censoring by omission  - low level intellectual content - we need the truth!
  • Food, Seeds, and Pesticides, Healthy affordable food : Prefer organic : No GMOs GE
  • Mining – corporate interest over local interest - no insurance to cover disasters?
  • Climate, fossil fuel pollution,  and environmental issues no dialogue with public
  • Health – Big Pharmaceutical controls, and loss of PHARMAC
  • Fluoride – doesn’t just affect the teeth, effects the thyroid, brain and bones
  • Education – privatising schools – bulk funding  – Charter  – schools
  • Justice and prisons – privatised to overseas corporations
  • Arms Industry promotes war – Strongly keep NZ Nuclear Free
  • Our Countries high level of debt. To Kiwi Saver not being invested within NZ
  • Laws being pushed through under urgency - No boat protests at sea. Warner Bros. GCSB Bill.
  • Fukushima radiation in Japan getting worse - yet all countries remaining deadly silent!
  • And more ... much more …

We peace-loving New Zealanders are challenging the status quo from the outside, and are up against a combination of the existing system and a whole host of full time professional corporate and governmental insiders  - who are hell bent on maintaining their power base, pay packets and superannuation at whatever the cost!

What we ask of you, is can you assist to make this important event happen? Can you with a small nucleus of people help organize your local town or city, or be put in touch with the volunteers already doing their best to make this happen?


This may be the most critical choice and tipping point in NZ of the 21st Century.

As all the issues that concern us are integrated, we have to now take back our country.

Because …

While we are busy watching telly, we're losing the country to outside entities!  With so many people who were able to vote last election, less than 75% of the country actually voted.

YES!, Our future especially our children and grandchildren's is at stake. NZer's have become far too complacent, docile and distracted whilst being self absorbed in 'other things' that we have found that our sovereignty has been eroded and our democracy sabotaged. Yet not only that, every move and utterance is being electronically tracked or recorded, by (an eye at the key hole) a gigantic global security apparatus - that whilst the lights were on, nobody was alert or home.

This is correct, main stream media and worse, the Parliamentary press gallery have been caught with their pants down because they have got too cosy and lazy to do their due diligence.

We have all been conned!

Should the Govt pass the GCSB Bill over the next 10 days this rally could be the best time for us to let the Govt know that they have lost the faith of 'We The People'. We do not want to be spied on!
