Always outdoors – but democracy is front & centre in 2022

We’re still passionate about protecting the outdoors. This hasn’t changed. But the Ardern regime has highlighted, on steroids, that it’s not just the outdoors we have to protect, but that our democracy and freedom is at stake.

Over the last 2 years the Freedom & Outdoors Party have jumped to the challenge and submitted on proposed bills that were NEVER on the table when the Ardern government gained majority government after the 2020 election. This impacts city and country people alike – but the legacy parties and the legacy media are silent, and they try to silence us.

The Outdoors & Freedom Party are responding by submitting to bills and proposals that are important to ensure we have a healthy democracy – as well as healthy families and rivers. This includes the Digital Identity Services Trust Framework Bill, Pae Ora (Healthy Futures) Bill, and to protest openly about government propaganda and mindless legislation around mandates.

We’re responding but we need New Zealand to wake up to what is happening. Please help us by helping spread the word in Tauranga.

The 2022 Tauranga By-election Campaign

The by-election is an opportunity to draw attention to Tauranga and New Zealand’s democracy deficit. Sue and Alan and the team are putting in a tremendous amount of work.

Please share these links and keep an eye on them for Tauranga events:
