Hone Harawira, MANA Leader and MP for Te Tai Tokerau

Thursday 19 June 2014

The announcement of the Internet Party’s candidates list today gets the full backing from Hone Harawira, MANA Leader and MP for Te Tai Tokerau.

“This announcement is great news for Internet MANA” said Hone Harawira.

“We’ve already chosen our first four candidates and we’re in the process of selecting the rest, but it’s good to see who we’re going to be working with in helping to build Internet MANA as a force in New Zealand politics.”

“Our aim as an alliance is to appeal to a broad range of voters, and the Internet Party list will certainly help us do that”

“I think these new faces will appeal to youth and attract people who previously haven’t bothered to vote, so I can see us growing our voter base and increasing our presence in parliament - and that will be good for MANA, the Internet Party and for the Internet MANA alliance.

“I know they were put through a pretty tough selection process and I have no doubt that Internet Party leader Laila Harre will be feeling really positive about the team she has behind her”

Gordon Campbell:
On Gaza And Burning The Israeli Flag

One of the selling points in New Zealand’s campaign for a temporary seat on the Security Council is that we have a pluckily independent voice to offer on international conflicts.

This image is not entirely self-delusional. When we did occupy a temporary UN Security Council seat in the 1990s, New Zealand was forthright about the need for the international community to actively respond to the Rwanda genocide. On April 14, 1994, New Zealand, Nigeria and the Czech Republic were the only nations to call for a forceful UN intervention to halt the killings. It was a proud moment in the diplomatic record of the Bolger government.

What then, is the current National government doing with respect to the slaughter in Gaza? More>>
