Libz Declare War On Activists

Press Release Libertarianz Party Thursday, 1 November 2001

Activists Declare War On GE; Libz Declare War On Activists

"In the wake of the Clark Compromise on GE, the eco-terrorists and sandalled vandals have crawled out of their caves and begun boasting about the violent direct actions they will be taking," notes Libertarianz leader and environment deregulation spokesman Peter Cresswell.

One group in particular has caught Cresswell's eye: a group calling themselves 'Green Gloves,' claiming the support of some 3,000 sympathisers - who in Cresswell's words "have called for all eco-terrorists to sign what they hypocritically call their "pledge of non-violent direct action."

Libertarianz uphold the right to self-defence and the rule of law, and consequently deplore the destruction of property these "morons," as Cresswell calls them, are eager for. He says that libertarians "recognise that when people are vandalising, looting and destroying there may be many things that can be called, but 'non-violent' is not one of them." 'Non-violence,' he says can not be stretched to cover the many acts of violence and destruction already perpetrated around the globe and in New Zealand in the name of Stone Age values."

He calls for a clear signal from Helen Clark that every act of destruction will result in arrests and prosecution. "We should not have to sit and watch these swaggering eco-vandals remain at large, as we did when Nandor Tansczos' Wild Greens destroyed crop research at Lincoln before the last electon."

To ensure that their violence meets at least some resistance, Cresswell calls for actions against the vandals. He has helpfully modified the vandals' own 'pledge of property destruction' into a pledge of forceful direct defence, and Cresswell says he would encourage anyone to who opposes the initiation of violence and property destruction that the eco-vandals are promising to fill it out and mail it to them at greengloved@yahoo.com.au

The revised pledge appears below:

Pledge of Forceful Direct Defence against 'Green Gloves' Threatened Violent Direct Action to Keep New Zealand Free of Genetically Engineered Lifeforms

a.. Because it is my life, my property and my right to do whatever I so choose with both, providing I respect that same right in others;

- and because I have the right to protect life and the right to pursuit of happiness on this planet free from violation by any body, whether well-meaning greenies, cultural protectionists, religionists, eco-facists, eco-terrorists, eco-Talebans or assorted sandalled vandals and do-gooders who would trample of the lives of others;

b.. and because it is a matter of survival for this and future generations that we be free to do as we so desire with our lives and property provided we don't initiate force on others seeking to do the same;

- and because I recognise the life-sustaining importance of private property I treat violence against a person's property as equivalent in effect to violence against that person.

c.. I, [insert your name here] demand that the full force of the law be brought against any and every perpetrator of violent property destruction, and I myself pledge:

- to take any necessary forceful and direct defensive action against anybody who attempts to exercise any degree of control or intervention against my person or any property in the name of "preventing the release of genetically engineered lifeforms" irrespective of whether such action is deemed illegal or not. Violence and destruction of private property is a great violation of productive people, and acceptance of such destruction is a serious threat to the values that support civilisation. Your pledge of forceful direct defence against eco-vandals follows in a tradition of the retaliatory defence of property in the name of liberty and freedom.

Display this in your home, and mail to the eco-Taleban at Groundswell against Green Fingers, PO Box 4346 Shortland Street, Auckland, and e-mail to greengloved@yahoo.com.au .

Bury them in paper.

It's enough to make you vote Libertarianz!
