On October 22, 2021, I posted a message from my mother’s heart on social media, calling on my fellow Kiwis to protect our country’s democracy and freedoms. That morning, our Prime Minister had delivered a deathblow by using the Covid jab to gain unprecedented and unjustified and legally untested control and power over Kiwi lives.
The response from Kiwis to my love letter to them, was overwhelming, visceral and heart breaking. Many are feeling scared, sad for the future of our once-free country, angry at the power grab, confused by the sudden change of public face into bully- pulpit leadership from this public servant and deeply worried for their children’s futures in NZ.
Our core consists of a movement to fight for our ebbing freedoms. This movement will feed into our political party. Both the movement and the party have the moniker ‘FreeNZ.’
Five key words summarise FreeNZ’s purpose and drivers:
There is a world of riches and integrity inside each of those words. As it grows from its grounded beginnings into a powerful political movement for change, FreeNZ has a multi-pronged focus:
You were born free; you still are
We stand for your freedom
We stand for your voice to be heard
