Haere Atu, Fascists - "alt-right" not welcome in Aotearoa

Haere Atu, Fascists - "alt-right" not welcome in Aotearoa


Date: 5 July 2018


“Auckland Peace Action (APA) calls on the Minister of Immigration to refuse racist hatemongers Stefan Molyneux and Lauren Southern entry to New Zealand. These prominent alt-right fascists are intending to travel to New Zealand to hold a public events in early August,” said APA member Valerie Morse.


“We stand in solidarity with the Muslim Community in Aotearoa who are opposing these fascists. If they come here, we will confront them on the streets. If they come, we will blockade entry to their speaking venue.”


“Lauren Southern was refused entry to the United Kingdom for distributing racist material. She is the mouthpiece for violent anti-Muslim, anti-immigrant actions. She even boarded a boat in the Mediterranean that shot flares at medical boats seeking to rescue refugees who were drowning in the water.”


“Stefan Molyneux is a white supremacist who says people of colour are racially and genetically inferior to whites. He is an anti-semite and a believer in eugenics.”


“We are concerned that right-wing extremism is reaching into our communities through sophisticated propaganda and subversive strategies creating and exploiting vulnerabilities that can ultimately lead to acts of violence. It is imperative that this type of racism is given no room to be promoted and encouraged in Aotearoa.”


“Lauren Southern and Stefan Molyneux have a long history of racist hate speech that has incited hate, racism and violence against people of colour and migrants. They will be disruptive to our community. These speakers are a rallying call to right wing hate groups in New Zealand and must be stopped.”


“These people want to empower local racists and to encourage racist violence. They come to recruit people to their fascist ideology."

"We are preparing to take action to stop their public event if the Minister fails to do so. We encourage people across Auckland to join us and say NO to hate.”

111 Support: Govt Axes Mental Health Pilot

The Government’s decision to axe a universally-supported pilot to improve the response to 111 mental health calls is nothing short of disgraceful, especially after Labour pledged to make mental health a priority, National’s Police spokesperson Chris Bishop says.

“It has been revealed that Labour has scrapped a pilot in which a mental health nurse would attend mental health incidents alongside police and paramedics to ensure that people in distress receive timely responses that are tailored to their needs.” More>>
