The Labour Party, who were once victims of this unjust law? Silent. National? Silent. ACT, who proudly proclaim themselves to be "the liberal party"? Silent. The Greens, usually a reliable voice on civil liberties issues? Silent. And of course nothing from the Progressives or Maori Party either. This is a serious civil liberties issue which threatens the freedom of speech of everyone in New Zealand - and our supposed representatives in Parliament refuse to say a word. Thanks, guys.The only political party to make comment is Libertarianz, which does at least make me proud, but the silence of the rest just leaves me in disgust.
UPDATE: Greens now have a release out. A day late, and maybe just a dollar or two short.
