Banana Republic Day

Pass the bananas

Just clarifying what Bernard Darnton will be doing today. From his blog:

Libertarianz will be marking New Zealand’s transition from a land of constitutionally limited government to banana republic by declaring October 18th to be Banana Republic Day. Libertarianz members and supporters will be outside Parliament from 11:30 this morning handing out bananas to mark this inauspicious occasion.

Join him. All welcome. And bring your own bananas.

UPDATE: The Herald notes the protest, but unilaterally declares Libz "right wing." What nonsense.

  1. Just gotta say it again:

    When the Labour stole the election
    I remained silent;
    I did not want to be labelled reckless.

    When they stole my money
    I remained silent;
    I knew it was legal.

    When they came for my free speech,
    I did not speak out;
    That was just campaign reform.

    When they came for me,
    No one could speak out.

    Break out the bananas and bend over boys coz it's all downhill from here
