The NZ First leader was in New Plymouth yesterday for an election campaign event.
‘These people are Marxist control freaks’, he said of those advocating the policy.
According to engineering consulting firm WSP, up to 44% of the New Zealand population could be living in three cities – Auckland, Hamilton and Tauranga, by 2048 – that’s half of all New Zealanders.
Opponents of the idea claim the concept of ’20-Minute Cities’ is a ruse that will allow a technologically omnipotent State to impose unreasonable restrictions on the right of freedom of movement and privacy, and other human rights.
Winston Peters actually says what we all know about the UN driven 15/20min cities..
“They are a control mechanism to keep you in place… these people are Marxist control freaks”
