New Zealand Population Changing By Stealth

Media Release

18 October 2002

New Zealand Population Changing By Stealth

“The face of New Zealand’s population is changing by stealth and without anyone asking New Zealanders first,” said New Zealand First leader Winston Peters.

“Recent population projections suggest that New Zealand’s Asian population will grow at a faster rate than the population as a whole and is expected to almost double in the next twenty years.”

“According to last year’s Census one in five New Zealanders was born overseas. Australian figures show that many of the other 4 out of 5 are heading off to Australia. The effect of these trends is to alter the very nature of our country. The sad thing is that this is happening as a result of poorly managed ad hoc immigration policies. And worse, when we attempt to debate the issues we are called racists and told to be quiet.”

“It is time for New Zealanders to stand up to this politically correct government and demand that our heritage be preserved. This is the very worst form of social engineering,” Mr. Peters said.
