JOHN MINTO FULL INTERVIEW

Anti-racism campaigner John Minto says there is no free speech issue with the impending visit of a pair of right wing speakers because their aim is not to contest ideas but to provoke hate against racial and religious minorities.

Lauren Southern and Stefan Molyneux are seeking a venue in New Zealand after Auckland mayor Phil Goff blocked their use of council facilities.

That decision is being challenged in court by the newly-formed Free Speech Coalition, which includes Hobson’s Pledge founder Don Brash and commentators Chris Trotter and Lindsay Perigo.

Mr Minto says the pair’s rhetoric about the collapse of western society leaves no room for Māori values.

"This can only be damaging to race relations or what we have here. They’d be staunchly opposed to the Treaty of Waitangi or any recognition of the Treaty of Waitangi. They’ve been opposed to any kind of recognition of values other than those white European values from the nineteenth century," he says.

In contrast with the speed with which Immigration New Zealand processed the pair’s visas, the Humanist Society says the department still hasn’t issued visas for some speakers and board members for next month’s International Humanist and Ethical Union conference in Auckland.

Banning Prisoners from voting impacts Māori worst
Martyn 'Bomber' Bradbury: The debate over Prisoners being able to vote has begun in the Waitangi Tribunal as argument is heard that the ban is a breach of the Treaty because it is so disproportionately unfair to Māori.
I will continue writing about the state taking children until something meaningful has occurred
Martyn 'Bomber' Bradbury: If you have the privilege of a platform, you must endeavour to use that platform for good. I have written previous columns about the extraordinary abuse of power by the state when they take children into their 'care'.
State Spying and a Police who see no spying, hear no spying and speak no spying
Martyn 'Bomber' Bradbury:: John Campbell's remarkable investigation at the beginning of the week into a Government agency tasked with looking after earthquake survivors using corporate spies to secretly tape complaining earthquake survivors was made more important by the remarkable announcement midweek from the NZ Police that found nothing illegal in the actions of anyone involved.
