Campaign created by Aotearoa 4 Assange
We ask the New Zealand Government, Jacinda Ardern (Prime Minister), and Kris Faafoi (Minister for Justice, Immigration, Broadcasting and Media) to take a global lead for transparent democracy (he kawanatanga-ā-iwi) by declaring that New Zealand would ensure protection for Julian Assange against extradition for publishing evidence of war crimes and human rights violations in the public interest. We ask that you offer Julian Assange and his family asylum in Aotearoa.
Why is this important?
Assange’s detention and the charges against him threaten press freedom around the world, and therefore threaten our right to know what is going on and democracy itself. We must call out this injustice and offer protection to Assange. Doing so will have New Zealand be a leader on the global stage for press freedom, peace and transparent democracy.

After a very unfriendly ‘farewell’ if you could call it that, Horowhenua’s former Mayor, Michael Feyen, speaks out about what is really happening inside your local councils.
THE MAYOR WHO HAS HAD TO RUN HIS OWN MEDIA CAMPAIGN SHARES SOME INSIGHTS INTO THE CURRENT STATE OF LG IN NZ
Stonewalled from the outset, this Mayor, also a former councilor who blew the whistle on among other things pollution, and (now coming out for example, & curiously right after elections the issue of the cracks in the new HDC building that HDC declined to have examined at no cost). Add to that monitored & intercepted emails, a secret $1mill payout to one of the local Iwi, and exclusion from the pensioner housing sale planning committee. As many of us are aware democracy is fading into oblivion in NZ & we have the mere illusion only of the former status quo. This is a must listen on the machinations of both LGNZ (& govt?) from an insider. There will be more to come. See our LG Watch pages & search HDC in ‘categories’ for Horowhenua articles. EWR
