Watch: Ram-raiding our democracy – Labour forcing controversial laws through parliament under ‘urgency’

Ram-raiding democracy news

Parliament is sitting today ‘under urgency’ to force through a number of controversial laws which will have a significant effect on the rights and freedoms of all New Zealanders.

In a video posted today on YouTube, independent journalist Chantelle Baker exposes the undemocratic move by Labour, using the excuse of Queen Elizabeth II’s death 10 weeks ago to take advantage of so-called ‘urgency procedures’.

‘Parliament is currently sitting under urgency’ – they say because of the Queen’s death, but what it really means, and Labour has done this multiple times, the last time they did it was with the ‘traffic lights’ system and rushing through that legislation, they also did it with pushing through the Maori Wards Bill.’

Labour currently have a clear majority in the House.

‘They call something under ‘urgency’ so it can bypass the normal process, including the Select Committee.’

Urgency also means that parliament has to remain sitting until the laws are passed.

‘What’s happened during this last couple of days in the news? The 16 year olds got the right to vote according to the Supreme Court. That Bill has not passed through parliament – you need 75%. The odds of that going through is quite small. But, what it has done is that it’s lead all the media to focus on one topic, and it’s distracted everybody.’

‘But that’s not the problem. The problem is this huge amount of legislation that Labour are looking at to rush through in the next week.’

‘There are 24 Bills they are looking to pass, but these are the ones I consider the most concerning:

  • 3 Waters
  • Digital Identity Trust Framework
  • Organic Produce and Production Bill
  • Clean Vehicles Bill
  • Healthy Home Standards
  • Dairy Restructuring Act – ie. Fonterra Restructuring
  • Climate Change Response
  • Firearms Amendment Bill

‘That’s just some of the 24 they are passing right now.

Baker also spoke of Facebook censorship, with the social media giant working hand-in-glove with Labour to remove content at the government’s behest in a clear violation of the right to free speech.

‘Facebook are working with the government through a portal to take content they don’t like down from the platform.

‘A number of videos have been taken down, which didn’t break any guidelines but they just ‘wiped them anyway, with no notes, no marks against our page, they just wiped them, and it does make me question if that portal’s being used on our page.’

  1. Yep had to happen, the pre-Christmas rush with the voting age distraction. I see she has also teamed up with Gates re the digital passport etc.. There is no end to Jabby’s evil doings, but there’s an end in sight for her next year. All we can do for now, as she has the majority in the house, is to grin and bear it. But she will never destroy our spirit and thirst for freedom no matter how hard she tries. And that’s a given..

    • Yes. At the G20 all of them signed up to the Digtal Passport thing. See the speech from the indonesian prime minister and the WEF boss (Shwaub?) gloating about how many governments WEF has penetrated. See this video:

      I think NZ is between a rock and a hard place. We all dislike this govt and want to get rid of them – rightly so. But are the next lot any better. National billboards say they will repeal 3 Waters, but will they? Will they go along with Digital Passports. The info in the link above is scarey

  2. The only urgrncy is to close down this competency-bankrupt government. MP’s are not entirely shielded fron the rigours of the justice system. Labour lacks a mandate for a lot of legislation. We need to be certain that MP’s have not broken the standards required. The PM is particularly suspect.

    • Kevin is correct. Labour’s majority does not in and of itself give them a mandate to pass any legislation whatsoever except or unless they specifically mentioned the bills they wanted to pass in their party manifesto prior to the election.

  3. Just showing how desperate they are as the old shitstem crumbles before them. Stay together people and feel the love. It’s all gonna work out fine

    • I agree that the urgency is stemming from desperation. J and her cronies are sweating, Klaus has delivered instructions at their last meeting. Peacefully hold the line Kiwi’s and the love, keep praying and never ever comply. Tyranny can only work with our compliance. We are our own heroes and most importantly the heroes for the children❤

  4. Thank you Chantelle. 20 bills in 3 days seems an insurmountable task but then these days we have computers! and artificial intelligence which makes us humans soooo much kinder, kinda. Are the bills pre-written by uncle klaus? and his trusted global digital health networks?

  5. What was behind the Forestry Amendment Act?
    Rushed through Parliament under urgency
    With very little time allowed for submissions

  6. A mockery has been made of “under urgency”. We do not consent.
    They are not urgent, they change the fabric of the way this country operates.
    So, that being the case, in my view, they are illegal.
    All must be repealed.
    Voting a party in does NOT give it the licence to turn our country into an authoritarian nightmare or replace democracy with a dystopian dictatorship.
