- Below we have input from a member of kiwisprotectingourfreedomofexpression.com who attended this Call for Action Meeting
This is a call to action.
For too long we have sat by and observed as our country has been divided, fractured, and oppressed.
For too long we have watched as the political class have wreaked havoc in our families, communities and towns.
It’s time we faced the stark reality that this situation isn’t going to be fixed by itself. If we want to see a brighter future for our children, families and our nation, it’s time we rose up together, at a local level, and coordinated to see real change.
MEN, THIS IS A CALL TO ACTION.
If you can see the issue, we challenge you, be a part of the solution. It’s time for us to meet together and discuss where to from here. Our families and communities are depending on us to stand up and be counted, so we challenge you;
STAND UP AND BE THE SOLUTION TO THE MESS WE FIND OURSELVES IN.
FRIDAY, 13th May
51 DUNLOP STREET
The battle for the heart and soul of our nation continues, and now, as much as ever, we need courage and fortitude to carry us forward.
Share this message around, bring your friends, your neighbours, whoever is interested. Together, we can create change. Together, we can be the solution to the situation we find ourselves in.
Our Members Input :
Great turnout to the meeting last night. About 75 new faces and about 10 who had organised the first 2 meetings, so 85 all up. The age range was a bit wider then l anticipated starting from late 20s through to late 70s. Some from as far away as Dunedin but mostly Southland rural and a few from lnvercargill. The meeting went for about 2.5 hours but there was a bbq going so most were there for 3 hours or so. 4 speakers including Farmer James and all had interesting stuff to tell, plus there was a good amount of audience interaction as well.
The main focus was on the importance of raising awareness at a local level to all the bs that is going on. Basically for each man to draw their own line in the sand and not go past it and to call out the hypocrisy of those being a hypocrite.
There was quite some discussion on local politics and the importance of being active at that level and other areas of the community where a difference can be made. I believe it is likely that the council elections will be quite different then in the past. At least one of the attendees will stand for regional council. School Board elections were also identified as well as our licensing trusts down here.
Phone numbers were exchanged and all will be notified of meetings and events etc.
All in all it was a great night and those who met up for the first time or who already knew one another are going to look at what activities they can do in their own patch.
On a personal level it was so refreshing to be among others who recognise that things are not right in this country. All there would admit there is a long battle ahead but something must be done and starting now.
Personally l thought the numbers were pretty good. Keep in mind that the time/venue of the meeting wasn’t made public until about 9 hours beforehand. This was intentional so that there was less time for those who might oppose the meeting to do anything to stop it. It also might have had an effect on who could attend due to short notice? It’s not such a bad thing to have relatively small groups anyway because if one is disrupted for any reason then the others can continue the fight. It is also really important to spread the word about meetings because if you get that one unexpected new attendee, then you never know how many friends they might have that they can introduce?
