Hi All,


Happy Christmas to everyone. I would like to take this moment to thank all who have placed their hand to the plow.

Unity for Liberty extended the invitation to join Novembers "Great New Zealand Table Challenge" . We always knew "The Challenge" would start a little slowly but were confident that as more folk came on board and had a taste, the momentum would grow. This has happened.

Larry Baldock informs us that at the beginning of November there were 212,000 signatures in the bank, our current account is now officially 245,291 signatures. And this does not include last weeks take, see below.

There is no reason that can't achieve 250,000 signatures before New Years Day, What a milestone.

Through the hard work of many dedicated volunteers our equation will have gone from 2500 people x 10 signatures per Saturday of November = 100,000 signatures

Now it will be approx:
1325 people nationwide x 5 signatures per Saturday of January and February = 53,000 signatures.


The response from those who have already collected will be: "Hey, that's just a mornings work for the whole quota".(1hr-2hrs tops)

Here is an example: "Today 3 teens got nearly 200 sigs in the streets of Rangiora. No table, just walking around with clipboards politely asking people. You don't need to ask anyone's permission for a table spot, and by asking people I think we get a better response rate. I wish we'd got started earlier.
Is it something you could get a youth group involved in?? Promise ice creams afterwards???

Shows you how simple it is!!!

Week update:
Porirua 150
Wellington 97
North Shore 519
Tauranga 100
Henderson 88
Papakura 250
Pukekohe 240
Rangiora 200
Catlins 70
1714 Total (not included in official count)

Please do not be fooled by the recent Police review and the media. It has been reported that the court has not been inundated with cases so the law is working. This is not the full story.

Firstly, they claim there has only been 15 investigations, but we are almost averaging one story a week from one table. The report also goes on to say that "an absence of a notification on a Police file does not necessarily mean that no notification was made."

I was speaking to a prominent Party leader's secretary, she made this comment "The police are required to investigate all reports", this is a classic case of "If we ask the wrong questions we will arrive at the wrong answer". Read on

There is a very disturbing trend that is developing in this country, this law, rather than being tested in the courts of the land, appears that it is being enforced by fear and intimidation from our Police Force. Recently a Grandmother was threatened with arrest just for restraining a 2 yr old from running on the road. The Officer made it very clear "I will let you off this time but next time I will arrest you". But there's more, this will test the above Police review figures. When the officer moved on, another woman (unsure if she was a mum or gran) come up and said, "They aren't kidding, they escorted me to the Police Station and interviewed me for the same thing last week."

We have since been made aware of more similar stories, they have been forwarded to Bob McCoskrie at Family First, please forward all stories to Bob, for him protection of the victim is more important than the story, he is a trusted person.

The secretary above, like the rest of us, assumed the police will only be investigating reported cases, who would have thought they themselves would become proactive and start intimidating grandmothers, and this was INCONSEQUENTIAL.

A solo mum, also a New Zealand citizen, who has not broken any law, the police chose to investigate her history through social services and then chose to challenge her parenting skills. She then went to complain to her local MP about her treatment, only to receive a phone call from the Police District Commander, "don't bother wasting the MP's time".

We pay out taxes to be protected by our police, now innocent New Zealanders are being attacked.

Unity for Liberty will be presenting our own review assessed from the trail of devastation that is being left behind from this Bad Law.

Let's collect these signatures and keep the politicians honest,
