Fathers Piknik at Parliament

Republic of New Zealand Party


News Release


22 August 2008


Fathers Piknik at Parliament

Republic of New Zealand Party candidates are inviting fathers, their families and friends to the Fathers Piknik at Parliament on Saturday 6th September from 1pm,” says party leader, Kerry Bevin

The Piknik is to celebrate the importance of fathers in children's lives, despite the fact that it hasn't been such a picnic for them under the Clark Coalition.

“Fathers work hard to support and encourage their kids but the misandrist policies of Clark have delivered much parental alienation.  Such aberrant family policy must be voted out at the next election by voting wise and voting Republican."

Mr Bevin claimed that women are still allowed to make false allegations against fathers, move children out of their schools and communities, seek unsubstantiated protection orders and prompt financial persecution by the IRD.  The monetary incentive to separate along with the prevalent feminist bias in family law was devastating families and maintaining societal dysfunction, he added

Few male teachers meant father roles were absent in schools too.

“We are now seeing the social consequences of this double whammy delivered by Helen and the Funny Girls."

“Despite the hits that fathers have taken from the Clark Government we can still have some fun with a concert and a lolly scramble.  See you at the Fathers Piknik on Saturday the 6th of September."

 Republic of New Zealand Party policy is to make equal parenting law, to protect children's rights to have a mother and a father.  Mediation will be binding in law, false allegations will be punished and protection orders will have to be substantiated.  Child support will become fair.  Men's refuges will be funded.  A Ministry of Men's Affairs will prepare policy and law to secure equal rights for fathers.
