The meeting was called for 7.00pm, 24 Sep 2014 at the Armitage Hotel in Tauranga. There was a reasonable turnout and much lively talk on where we are right now with 1Law4All. The main business of the meeting was to elect a new Board of Directors.
The Directors elected are:
* Alastair Bourne (Tauranga)
* Brenda Spiller (Hawke’s Bay)
* Ian Brougham (Wanganui)
* Kay Beetham (Gisborne)
* Perry Spiller (Hawke’s Bay)
There were no nominations for Party Leader or President.
Perry asked members whether or not they thought the Party had a future and – after some lively discussion – the motion was put:
that 1Law4All continue as a political party.
– Carried by a show of hands with two dissenting votes.
The meeting closed shortly after the vote.
Legal equality of all citizens is the foundation stone of democracy. It makes us feel safe – knowing we’re all playing by the same rules. We all have the same rights, privileges and obligations.
And despite its human element, true democracy has proven to be the most enduring and successful system of government. It makes for united, prosperous and happy nations.
But our democracy has been shrewdly undermined and the pace is quickening. We now have legislation at local and national level that gives unelected and unaccountable factions access to our taxes, and control over our properties, our organisations and the interpretation of our laws.
Our rights, privileges and obligations now depend on who our great grandfathers were or which ethnicity we can align ourselves with. Just look around the world for the many unhappy consequences of encouraging such destructive ethno-cultural divides.
It is time for all Kiwis to make a stand. No matter where we came from, or our parents came from, we must all be equal in the eyes of the law.
