‘Party Party’ Hitting the Right Notes

‘Party Party’ Hitting the Right Notes


The “sold out” sign has gone up at the Internet Party’s concert in Christchurch tonight.

A capacity crowd of 1000 will be at The Foundry for the Party Party concert, part of a major national musical tour aimed at getting more young voters involved in the political process ahead of the general election on September 20.

Featuring some of the country’s leading live acts – State of Mind, Optimus Gryme, Sons of Zion, Laughton and Brad Kora, PNC, Kamandi, Team Dynamite, Tommy Ill and Beatmob, along with Internet Party founder Kim Dotcom – the Party Party tour kicked off with a pumped up crowd of more than 500 hitting the dance floor in Auckland on Wednesday night.

Internet Party leader Laila Harré said the response to Party Party had been staggering.

“The Party Party is all about engaging young people in politics, and it’s working. By combining the message of why it’s so important that young Kiwis get out and vote this election with high-energy music and dance, it’s a message they can finally get.

“Auckland was outstanding and with the Christchurch event sold out it’s clear the Internet Party is connecting with young people in a way that no other party can match. Why? Because we get them and we get what matters to them. What they told us was absolutely clear – they’re sick of a government that doesn’t listen to them or value them. Internet MANA is going to put that right on September 20.”

The Party Party hits Wellington on Friday night and Dunedin on Saturday night. With a big turnout in Auckland and a full house in Christchurch they’ll be tough acts to follow, said Ms Harré.

“Let’s pump it and give the Beehive a real shakeup.”

Gordon Campbell:
On War Crimes And The Afghan Insurgency

Truly, with friends like former defence Minster Wayne Mapp, the SAS does not need enemies. At the very least, the Hit and Run book has raised the possibility that the New Zealand SAS committed war crimes in the attack they led in Afghnistan upon the villages of Naik and Khak Khuday Dad...

Mapp’s attempted defence of the SAS on RNZ this morning unintentionally indicated that collective punishment was baked into the planning exercise for the raid, and also into how the raid proceeded on the ground. More>>
