    Security News: Peters Talks Tough On Terrorism

    New Zealand welcomes the consensus on extending the mandate of the Counter Terrorism Task Force (CTTF) for a further two years. It is clear that the threat posed by terrorists to security, stability and prosperity in the APEC region has not abated. Given the number of counter-terrorism initiatives currently under consideration, it is equally clear that the CTTF continues to have a solid agenda in front of it. See... NZ statement on APEC's counter-terrorism work [1]

    Election Promises: Nats Claim Free Childcare Won't Come

    The Labour Government cannot deliver on its promise to provide 86,000 toddlers with access to 20 hours free childcare, says National’s Associate Education spokesman, Tau Henare... Nationwide, 40% of early childhood providers do not expect to offer the service. See... The great early childhood hoax [1]

    Digital: E-Government Strategy Promises Digitisation Nation

    State Services Minister Annette King has launched the 2006 E-Government Strategy saying e-government is not just about technology, but about putting people first. "It is about making government work for New Zealanders," she says. The first E-government Strategy was released in April 2001. The latest version is the fourth version of the Strategy, and is called Enabling Transformation. See... E-Government Strategy Released [1]

    Environment: Parker Addresses Climate Change Convention

    I bring greetings from New Zealand and thank you and your Government for hosting us here in Nairobi.

    Gordon Campbell: On The Politicising Of The War On Drugs In Sport

    It hasn’t been much fun at all to see how “war on drugs in sport” has become a proxy version of the Cold War, fixated on Russia. This weekend’s banning of the Russian long jumper Darya Klishina took that fixation to fresh extremes. More>>

    Binoy Kampmark: Kevin Rudd’s Failed UN Secretary General Bid

    Few sights are sadder in international diplomacy than seeing an aging figure desperate for honours.

    Keeping Out The Vote: Gordon Campbell On The US Elections

    Ramzy Baroud: Being Black Palestinian - Solidarity As A Welcome Pathology

    It should come as no surprise that the loudest international solidarity that accompanied the continued spate of the killing of Black Americans comes from Palestine; that books have already been written and published by Palestinians about the plight of their Black brethren.
