Movie-Goers to Learn About Liberty

June 23 2005

National Ad Campaign

Movie-Goers to Learn About Liberty

"Today the Libertarianz party begins a cinema advertising campaign that is designed to educate voters on the causes of political oppression, and the solution," announced project coordinator and Libertarianz List Candidate Terry Verhoeven this morning.

"Thousands of movie-goers around the country will be treated to an enjoyable two-minute animation titled 'An Introduction to Liberty' -- a thought-provoking message highlighting that no government has the right to enslave or to steal from its citizens. The message is one that holds true regardless of the imaginative labels used by governments to justify their behaviour, or the numbers of people encouraging it."

In pondering just how relevant the ad is to New Zealand at the moment Verhoeven observed "The message of individual freedom is needed most by countries such as ours where voters still have an ability to effect change for the better, particularly when parties such as Libertarianz are there to seek your vote."

Verhoeven continues "As the only political party in New Zealand committed to shrinking the power and influence of government in every area of our lives, Libertarianz's advertising campaign may be small in budget, but it is huge on substance. I am confident that when compared to the multi-million dollar tax-victim-funded tidal wave of pre-election spin, propaganda and hype that is about to hit the airwaves shortly, our enjoyable short animation--funded solely by voluntary contributions--is something that voters will see as a breath of fresh political air."

Anzac Issue Out Now: Werewolf 47

Alison McCulloch: Lest We Remember

Local iwi have plans to spruce up the Te Ranga site as part of the 150th commemorations this year of key battles in the “New Zealand Wars”, but not a lot of money to do it with.

Information gathered from numerous government agencies shows that while more than $25 million is being spent on monuments and commemorations relating to foreign wars, primarily World War I and its centenary, only around $250,000 has been set aside for those fought on our own soil. More>>

Even cursory research into media reports from the past forty years reveals a cultural shift in the commemoration of Anzac Day. Among other things, turnout at Dawn services has increased significantly in recent decades.

Contemporary numbers are estimated at 3,000-4,000 in Wellington, and 10,000-15,000 in Auckland. Newspaper reports from the 1970s and 80s estimated Wellington turnouts at 300-800, and Auckland at anywhere from 600 to 4,000. More>>
