I knew this document existed, I tried to find it a few years ago to back up the other laws I had found regarding human, civil and political rights in New Zealand. I just didn’t have the right name and didn’t realise it was 20 years old – absolutely appalling the violations of it now – especially in my case.
The Universal Declaration on Democracy as signed by all the governments of Commonwealth countries – thoroughly violated in the treatment of disabled and poor people in New Zealand.
We talk about love and compassion in New Zealand, how we need that back in our government – but what most people don’t realise is – what our leaders became was never ever supposed to happen, the poor and powerless were supposed to be protected from cruelty by rich powerful elites and governments. Max Harris (The NZ Project) talks about bringing love and morals back into politics, but they were always supposed to be there and it was a violation of multiple laws when our leaders lost that and nobody stepped in to stop them.
ANY LAWYERS OUT THERE WANT TO DEBATE ME ON NZ BILL OF RIGHTS being given significant power over the conduct of our government with the support of these signed Declarations – which are not only a contract with the leaders of the Commonwealth and United Nations, they are a contract with the citizens of New Zealand – a contract with me that they are going to adhere to these rules. Currently they do not and there is nothing people like me can do but challenge this gross miscarriage of justice on every level they can. No matter how much intimidation the government throw at you.
