Greens receive a "brickbat" from People Power NZ

Greens receive a "brickbat" from People Power NZ – while the Government, Electoral Commission, and media go quiet

People Power NZ welcomed the Green Party (Auckland Electorate office – Sandringham) to its ongoing citizens initiated active protest against the passing of the Electoral Finance Act this evening.

“The Green Party is a particular fan of “grass roots” People Power movements, so we are sure that they will appreciate the irony of being on the receiving end of our protest against the EFA” says People Power NZ.

“The Green Party is not a party of enthusiastic environmentalists, but rather a loose association of jaded Marxists long past their use by date – it is time for the Green Party to join their EFA voting partners NZ First, and be consigned to the dustbin of political oblivion come the 2008 Election” says People Power NZ.

“On another matter, People Power NZ have noticed that the Government, Electoral Commission, and the media have gone very quiet over our recent activities – we are assuming that People Power NZ are a little harder to push around than a 21 year old living with his Mum operating a $50.00 “dontvotelabour” website, and we are still waiting for the Electoral Commission to take us to task over our website at www.people-powernz.org” says People Power NZ.

“And to make the whole campaign a little more interesting for the media, People Power NZ would like to announce that our next direct protest action will occur on the 28th February, 2008, venue to be advised”.
