You asked for UNITY. We LISTENED, and we are PROUD with the WIN:WIN outcome we have ACHIEVED with FREEDOMS NEW ZEALAND. We want to share more about our exciting, challenging, sometimes frustrating, but always rewarding journey.
Over the last few years we have grown many wonderful relationships - at the Freedom Village, during our Tauranga by-election campaign, at our Murupara and Cambridge hui, at our lounge and village hall meetings in small towns around New Zealand, at Waitangi, and talking to New Zealanders while out camping, walking, cycling, fishing and kayaking and enjoying our GREAT NEW ZEALAND OUTDOORS at many beautiful locations.
We've had countless zoom meetings with our network of wonderful and brave doctors, and other leaders and expert networks from around New Zealand and the world. We've responded to ad hoc law reforms with numerous urgent submissions and objections to Parliament.
In her professional life, Sue has led legal challenges opposing arbitrary laws, defended some of the most vulnerable New Zealanders and helped many negotiate the withdrawal of charges.
During our journey we have found some who are willing to step forward early, and walk the walk, even when the path is difficult and unknown. We have nurtured an outstanding outdoors and freedom family.
We are very clear about the enormous challenges ahead, and have exposed many of these with Sue's amazing OIA requests. We face globalists with extended tentacles, state sponsored media and academia, misplaced loyalty and trolls, who are well rewarded for closing down those who challenge the globalist narrative. Somehow all 120 of our elected representatives got bullied into silent compliance.
We have worked hard to find allies and create a culture of collaboration where we listen to each other, and find agreed values, and policies and ways of doing things which still respect what is important to us and our diversity. We have thought hard about what is possible with the constraints of MMP, the Electoral Act, its 5% threshold and the grossly unfair allocation of broadcasting and other resources.
We have created a model that enables all who crave change to strategically work together to overcome the many obstacles. We have agreed on important values, policies and ways of doing things. We have also agreed that on other issues we retain and can continue to develop our Outdoors and Freedom policies.
We've got a massive task ahead of us to reclaim the essence of New Zealand. It requires our combined wisdom, expertise, energy, collaboration and respect for different views. We are never all going to agree on everything - who even wants the model where there is only a "single source of truth"?
The first step to change is reclaiming our voices, our opinions and the courage to speak out and share different views, and facilitating different views around the decision making table. Joining Freedoms NZ is a significant step forward towards reclaiming our future from the killjoy globalists, and reclaiming the pride and spirit of New Zealand.
Already other parties and movements are lining up to talk.
Imagine the hurdles that would have been avoided over the last few years if even one MP would listen to and speak for the people. Imagine our future with a team of representatives who have risen through the many challenges to stand proudly for us. Imagine our combined wisdom and the diverse groups we can represent when we stand together!
We are excited to be on this journey together with you.
