Application for Inclusion on Nat. Front ‘Hit List'

Application for Inclusion on National Front ‘Hit List’

Gay man and human rights campaigner Jeremy Lambert is seeking inclusion on the National Front’s ‘hit list’ of known “communists, anti-facists, anarchists, homosexuals, multiculturalists”.

“The National Front obviously hates everything I stand for. I am openly gay, of mixed Maori European heritage and have campaigned extensively for Human Rights. I must qualify near top of their list”, says Jeremy Lambert.

Today’s New Zealand Herald reported Perth-based Webgroup Redwatch Downunder had sent emails to groups in New Zealand seeking names of people who were known to be, amongst other things, “homosexuals and multi-culturalists”.

The Australian group is closely aligned to New Zealand’s National Front whose spokesperson Kyle Chapman has said the purpose of the list was “to counter what the communists do to us”.

“There is a perception that gay and lesbian New Zealanders are running the country at the moment. The reality couldn’t be further from the truth. With every step forward we prepare for the “anti-PC” backlash. Recent human rights advancements in partnership recognition have been followed by a string of hostile attacks from both mainstream and fringe politicians”, says Jeremy Lambert.

The ‘hit list’ is to comprise names, photos and contact numbers.

“My name is Jeremy Lambert. My contact number is in the phone book and I have some fantastic photos available”, says Jeremy Lambert.

Jeremy Lambert is a former Parliamentary Secretary, Civil Unions campaigner and serves on the board of the New Zealand AIDS Foundation
