Declaration of Equality

Lady Justice

Help make this happen – sign the Declaration of Equality

“We the undersigned are calling on Government Members of the House of Representatives to show true leadership by representing the views of the majority of New Zealanders – who believe that all people should be equal in the eyes of the law – by implementing the Declaration of Equality…”
- New Zealand Centre for Political Research

The Declaration

New Zealanders have founded our society in the equality of comradeship, and living here at home in the land we have made, utterly oppose any laws which establish or promote racial distinction or division. There shall be one law for all:

  • We reject any reference to the Treaty of Waitangi or its principles in any constitutional document.
  • We require that such references be removed from all existing legislation.
  • We require that race-based Parliamentary seats be abolished.
  • We require that race-based representation on local bodies be abolished.
  • We require that the Waitangi Tribunal, which has outlived any usefulness it may have had, be abolished.

And we pledge ourselves to oppose and resist all those of whatever rank or degree who, whether by force or the devious processes of the law, attempt to impose the fetters of racial inequality on the free citizens of New Zealand.

Excerpt from New Zealand Centre of Political Research website:

“The government’s constitutional review is a major threat to New Zealand’s democracy. A biased
constitutional advisory panel and a consultation process that locks out non-Maori threatens to
permanently put power and privilege into the hands of the tribal elite.

This urgent threat to our future is quietly building momentum while most people are unaware of
what is at stake.

The constitutional advisory panel – an initiative of the Maori Party fronting for the tribal elite – has
embarked on a similar consultation process to that used to pass the atrocious Marine and Coastal Area Bill into law. $4 million will be spent over the next 12 months to convince the public that we need a new ‘written’ constitution to enshrine the Treaty of Waitangi as superior law. A new constitution would give un-elected Judges supreme power over our elected Members of Parliament.

If we do nothing, under this new regime, non-Maori New Zealanders will become second class citizens in their own land. All attempts to impose a race-based future on New Zealand – through a “written” constitution embracing the Treaty – should be strongly opposed …”
