‘NZ Sovereignty’ rallies against immigration

Rallies against immigration scheduled for today were always likely to struggle for serious attention, but they are trying.

I wonder if they are aware that many of the New Zealand soldiers who served in the trenches in world War 1 were either immigrants or children of immigrants.

But not the right to immigrate.

@NzSovereignty

The people of New Zealand reject completely the UN Migration Compact and call for the resignation of the politicians who signed and support it 

Calling on politicians to resign when they do something one disagrees with has never been a very successful form of activism here in New Zealand.

This news probably won’t help: Immigration numbers revised down

This appears to have been planned since December:

They may get a few people out of the trenches this afternoon, but I doubt this will get a lot of traction.

Their ‘About’ on Facebook talks about ‘we the people’ but there is just one ‘team member’ listed.

    This should be funny. Are there many Colonel Blimp types left in our population?

    What can one say about this “peaceful” organisation using such imagery of war and gun violence, and such militaristic language? Not just bastards … or stupid bastards …

      The only stupid bastards are those who think this issue is for stupid . The compact is one foot in the door, leading down a corridor to making the migration compact binding.

      You do believe in our sovereignty and our right to choose – Parti?

      Question: We like making fun of our supposed ”thick’ Aussie neighbours. Remind me again why these idiots didn’t sign?

      Could it be their immigration service..and advice.. ain’t broke like ours?🙄

        The Aussies didn’t sign because their immigration policy doesn’t uphold basic human rights … or in other words because they’re dangerous stupid bastards!!!

        If they’ve signed the Universal Declaration of Human Rights then they’re hypocritical dangerous stupid bastards …

        Their immigration service is “broke” all Right … it’s ethically bankrupt.

        The Compact doesn’t change our “right to choose” or threaten our sovereignty.

          Piss poor answer for someone with your intellectual prowess .

          This for example is simple ”filler.”

          ”The Compact doesn’t change our “right to choose” or threaten our sovereignty.”

          ”The Aussies didn’t sign because their immigration policy doesn’t uphold basic human rights … or in other words because they’re dangerous stupid bastards!!!”

          They didn’t sign because they have had to deal with ”real world problems” that affect their borders and sovereignty, problems that little old NZ – in a pink cosy bubble- hasn’t.

        Bizarre that you think the Compact is “one foot in the door” but you can’t see that provisions for Corporations to sue States in FTA’s are too … and are probably more of a threat to sovereignty …

              Yes. I guess they wanted something to attract attention. But no one really gives a stuff as has already been pointed out.

              The best they can hope for is to have reasoned designated speakers.

              Apart from that…it’s just a matter of waiting until the Sky Tower crumbles to the ground with the loss of over 500 souls…or some nut decides to run a car into innocent people.

              The Compact, once it becomes binding, will multiply the chances of the above happening.

              And don’t forget consequences on down stream..for example armed police..some with machine guns in our main centres.

              The age of innocence will have passed for Aotearoa.

              The age of innocence may have passed with the burning down of the Social Security Building in 1939? Or the Rainbow Warrior bombing?

              Most of the nuts in cars who injure and kill in this country aren’t immigrants, let alone terrorists …

              Two examples of precision hits. And not by people with a worldwide domination agenda aided by a religion.

              ”Most of the nuts in cars who injure and kill in this country aren’t immigrants, let alone terrorists.”

              True..they don’t wake up and say..gonna kill me some infidels today.

              You seem to; well, one eye at least.

              We have had very few mass murders here, but only one was an immigrant as far as I know; Stanley Graham. The Aramoana massacre was not done by an immigrant, and the others were family killings.

              We don’t need to wait until someone drives a car into a crowd; it’s happened already.

    Boys own annual stuff.
    Soldiers going over the top?
    Told to run into the German machine guns at the Somme.
    How did that work out?
    Not very well for 56,000 British troops on the 1st of July 1916.
    The eunuch figure ushering in mass immigration
    like the rats image of the Jews of Nazi propaganda days.
    The bullet holed UN symbol so NRA.
    Where is the confederate flag?
    Shades of the dancing Cossacks of 1975
    The Jehova Witness Awake + Watch Tower magazine style.
    “Sovereignty” is sacred?
    Oh good so you will be fully acknowledging Maori Sovereignty
    over this country as written in the Treaty of Waitangi.
    Good to know.
    It is the world seen through a limited lens
    with all the obvious flaws of narrow minded thinking,
    To be fair every group left, right who ever however
    do exact same thing seeing the world through a preferential lens.
    The rally at Meyers park will also have their fair share
    of idealistic well meaning impassioned poorly informed disciples.
    Like Mr Magoo all half blind just happy to motor on
    hitting other cars going over cliffs smiling and singing all awhile 🙂
    But ignorance is bliss… so I have been told.
    Oh you lucky people with your simple worlds I envy you.
    Truth is probably no where near Myers park or Aotea square.
    While the idealists are saving the world between texts, selfies,
    placards, sausage sizzles and balloons
    reality is a 42 year old solo mother juggling
    child rearing, caring for elderly family members
    and a cleaning job at night.

  5. The Spinoff: The furious world of New Zealand’s far right nationalists

    Hundreds of Kiwis have pledged to march today against an obscure UN migration pact today under the guise of a brand-new organisation calling itself NZ Sovereignty. The central issue emphasised by the group, which ran advertisements in newspapers yesterday, concerns the New Zealand government’s support for the Global Compact on Migration. Opposition to the agreement first emerged on sites like the alt-right website Breitbart and neo-Nazi website Daily Stormer which warned it would “Bring 60 Million Brown People to Europe”.

    Can the furore over the UN pact, which explicitly draws misguided inspiration from the “yellow vest” demonstrations in France, be seen as a warning sign of a greater problem? A burgeoning far-right, or “alt-right”, political movement in New Zealand?

    Are we missing the rise of the far-right? What would the symptoms of such a movement be and how could the media better cover them?

      Funny thing..if Jacinda had taken a breath, sought public input..and asked herself ‘why other countries aren’t joining’ we wouldn’t be having this discussion?

      While the Compact probably would have been given the Green light via referendum.. at least we would have had our say.

          I can’t remember you……

        Trust in conventional media remains high. A 2017 survey by Colmar Brunton found that seven in eight Kiwis trust newspapers and radio, while only 38% trust Facebook as a news source. If the media effectively combat far-right propaganda and fake news – something American outlets initially tripped up on – trust can remain high.

        Medical practitioners scored highest with 56 percent trusting them “lots” or “completely”, followed by police (53 percent). Judges and courts had a 34 percent rating.
        But there was little faith in politicians, nor in media, with print and broadcast media at 9 percent, and last on the list, bloggers, trusted by 5 percent in the survey.

          So Professor Spoonley is the expert on the far right from the perspective of the far-left. He isn’t objective he tries to inflict reputational damage.

      The far-right & far-left are mostly full of idiots but as to the question as to how the MSM in NZ will cover any organisation classed as ‘far-right’? They will be vilified, even if they aren’t doing anything whilst the far-left nutters will continue to be treated like outstanding & reasoned community spokespeople.

          The Alt Right anti UN rallies held today in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch have been a failure.

          An amalgamation of politically confused Yellow Vests, anti 1080 fanatics, anti Vaxxer fanatics, anti UN fanatics and culture war New Conservatives have all come together to create a pretty confused message.

          50-130 in Auckland, 30-50 in Christchurch and no word from Wellington.

          Not so much a populist movement as it is a barely moving bias. Less reactionary, more stationary.

          It still should have got some coverage. I’ve seen plenty of much smaller rallies & protests turn up on tv & some ranting fanatic or grudge-possessed seether get given a few seconds of sound bite.

            There’s quite possibly someone among that confused crew who will be happy to do that.

            We’ll could have Valerie Morse on a megaphone yelling about doing something excruciating with the flag, Green Party SJW’s prattling on about the evils of uniforms, Radfems waving #metoo banners at any female members of the military, that amazon in the white dress and MAGA cap arguing we need a wall, & the ones in the yellow vests going on about the Rainbow Warrior.
