ANZAC Day – Lest We Forget

An open letter to all Members of Parliament.

Dedicated to all who fought to retain the freedoms of our people and our country in past wars and all who continue to do so today.

Valour is stability, not of legs and arms, but of courage and the soul. — Michel de Montaigne

Setting aside the reasons the two main world wars occurred, in good faith, hundreds of thousands of New Zealanders took up arms in WW1 and WW2 on the understanding they were helping to defend our people and our country. There were 98,950 New Zealanders serving overseas in WW1, of which 80% were volunteers, with 550 nurses among them. 18,058 New Zealanders were killed, and 41,317 died from injuries or illnesses. 501 became prisoners of war.

In WW2, New Zealand had a population of 1,600,000 of which 140,000 New Zealanders served. There were 11,928 killed. The ratio of New Zealanders killed per million of population was the highest in the Commonwealth countries.

New Zealanders and Australians have ANZAC Day as a day of remembrance for those who fought for our freedom, but never returned home, who suffered terrible injuries, and for all whose lives were irrevocably changed as a result.

The cost was enormous. Fatalities, life-long injuries and the loss of at least seven years of their lives, fighting, or nursing the injured, in far-flung corners of the world.

Our courageous men and women went to war to keep our country free from the tyranny of fascism and communism. They fought to retain the sovereignty of our respective countries, (New Zealand and Australia), to retain our freedoms, and to remain independent of oppressive cultures attempting to jack-boot their way through our countries with the intention to turn us into little more than pitiful slaves.

Those who survived had to adjust to very different lives due to life-changing injuries such as; amputated limbs, severe head injuries, blindness, having been burned almost beyond recognition, or with deep internal scar tissue through the inhalation of mustard gas. Some died shortly after their return home due to injury, or as a result of the deprivations suffered from years as prisoners of war. Most returned with the scars of what they had experienced and seen that would shake the strongest amongst us to the very core.

On their return, long after the marches through the main cities of cheering people, the rousing speeches by politicians, and the mayoral receptions, and long after the bands stopped playing, these souls, alone with memories so horrific that they could not bring themselves to talk of them — except with those who had been there as well — had to battle on as best they could, despite terrifying flashbacks — haunted in a way that no soul should ever have to endure. Prisoners of war also suffered terribly, having lived through years of torture and cruelty at the hands of a callous enemy — they also suffered from memories that preyed upon them and from which they rarely felt release.

What they did have though, was the knowledge that they had given their utmost to keep our land and our people free. They knew they had stood in front of those at home and protected them with their lives — the ultimate sacrifice.

Some were there at the first opening of the concentration camps in Germany and Asia and were stunned to see the living skeletons who greeted them in such hell-holes. But our soldiers would have felt secure in the knowledge that most of those who master-minded such death camps were stood on trial and brought to swift justice. With the subsequent creation of the Nuremberg Code that our politicians agreed to and signed — on more than one occasion — they would have also felt that their job was done. And although the cost was incalculable —the price of freedom was worth it.

Perhaps they would have felt further comfort on learning, just after the war, that the United Nations was formed with the intention to ensure such wars could never occur again, for that was the original purpose of the U.N.

But how would they have felt upon learning that the United Nations and the World Health Organisation have become corrupted and that key leaders of countries of the western world — many of whom are graduates of the World Economic Forum (WEF) indoctrination programmes — work closely with the UN and WHO and support the intention to destroy our sovereignty through the creation of a “one-world government”.

What would they have thought of the politicians who were in parliament today marching, in lockstep, to the dictates of this organisation, the WEF, who has made no secret of wanting to hack into the brains of humans and create transhumanist slaves without a soul? Just recently, the WEF leader, Schwab suggested paedophilia be regarded as normal and the UN echoed that depraved, evil suggestion. He also recently suggested that water was not a basic right of the people. And here in NZ the government has announced that they intend to take the water infrastructure from each region and ‘control’ it. This infrastructure is owned by the ratepayers, not the government. They are attempting to take it without our consent, which is theft.

Would those who fought and gave their lives for the freedom of our people and the sovereignty of our country, have demanded to know why you, as government, were not immediately removing our country from the membership of such corrupt groups?

Would they have been shocked by the attack on our bodily autonomy through “government” enforcement of an experimental novel mRNA injection being rolled out on the population, with politicians lying to the people that this experiment was “safe and effective”, yet was also in direct violation of the Bill of Rights Act and the Nuremberg Code?

What would they have thought of many doctors and nurses in hospitals today who deny the horrific side-effects and deaths of the experimental injection, and torture patients by telling them it must be “all in their heads”, and who continue to try to push it onto most Kiwis, including the badly injured?

What would they have thought of a Ministry of Health who apparently “knew” there were only around 100 people — out of five million — who would qualify for an exemption from an experimental injection, without seeing one patient to determine that was the case?

What do you think they would have thought of the decisions made by this government department when a young woman, blinded in one eye from the first injection, was denied an exemption from the second? Or the widow with a young son who suffered cardiac issues from the first jab and was told there was no exemption for the second, and if she did not have it she would lose her job as a social worker? Or the fit young man in his 40s who had to get the jab for his job and suffered heart injuries so severe that he lost his job and his home, and is now living with his young son in rental accommodation, still terribly injured and with ACC refusing to pay compensation? What would they think of young Casey Hodgkinson, and many thousands like her, who has been shockingly injured as a result of the side-effects of the jab and is still denied compensation? There are countless stories like this. All brushed from view by government and a media sponsored by government.

What would they think of those who have lost their loved ones as a result of the violation of the Nuremberg Code and Bill of Rights in our country?

And what would they have thought of a government forbidding approximately 1,000 courageous nurses and doctors to work because they refused the injection and warned others of its side effects — in line with their Hippocratic Oath to, First, Do No Harm? (Yet this “government” permits those injected and suffering from “covid” to work.)

What would they think of the cancelling of free speech, censorship of our people, and the vicious police attack on New Zealanders peacefully protesting on the lawn before Parliament Buildings in 2022, because they were dismissed from their jobs for refusing to take an experimental jab with nine pages of side effects that had not been properly tested and which politicians had guaranteed the manufacturers no liability for side effects? Would they have accepted that the countless pleas of the people to you, their representatives, for their basic human rights to be upheld, were ignored?

Wouldn’t those who marched off to war to risk their lives for our freedom and the sovereignty of our country have been appalled at the complete disregard New Zealand’s politicians — and those of almost all of the Western World — now show for the Nuremberg Code and the Bill of Rights?

You bet they would have.

Would they have been horrified and furious that their ultimate sacrifice all those years ago has been betrayed by every member of parliament who are meant to be there to serve the people? That is you — members of parliament — among others in key positions, who know, but have chosen to remain silent — or worse.

If those for whom we commemorate ANZAC Day looked for just one politician in the New Zealand government who had said no, would they have found one? (The Australians at least have a few courageous members of parliament standing up and speaking out on these violations on our Bill of Rights and the Nuremberg Code.)

There is something in the human spirit that will survive and prevail, there is a tiny and brilliant light burning in the heart of man that will not go out no matter how dark the world becomes. — Leo Tolstoy

On seeing the squandering of our freedoms in 2023 that they fought so hard to retain, their outrage would have surely echoed throughout the land.

It would be enough to wake the dead.

In recent years, it has become almost a rite of passage for politicians, and our people, to travel to ANZAC Cove in Gallipoli to attend a dawn service. It has become a ‘place’ to make a pilgrimage to, in respect for the huge number of casualties where Kiwis and Aussies were used as cannon-fodder by an English command. Yet there were many other areas of bloody conflict over both world wars, including North Africa, Italy, Greece, France, other areas of Europe, and the Battle of Britain, where it was a miracle to survive each Op.

But perhaps a better, more fitting memorial to those lost in these terrible conflicts would be for all New Zealanders and Australians to stand for our freedoms today, rather than leave it to rest on the shoulders of just a few. To stand up and speak out and peacefully say, No, we do not consent.

The qualities of the indomitable human spirit will
always win over tyranny and oppression — no matter
how great the odds. — MH

Citizens in Europe are standing for their freedoms. For weeks the French have been in the streets protesting without pause. The Dutch have been doing the same. Those countries know what it is like to be invaded by an enemy. And they’re not having it. Millions are protesting. But not a word of this appears in the paid-off media here.

Back in New Zealand, dawn services are still held throughout our countries on ANZAC Day, where the Last Post with its hauntingly familiar sound echoes throughout the land. Politicians are often in attendance, laying wreaths, making speeches and, on occasion, proudly telling stories of their ancestors who fought for our freedom.

Would those gallant, brave, gutsy New Zealanders who fought and who paid the ultimate sacrifice want you there — your ancestors included? When you did not stand up and say no? When you cowered in that ghastly taxpayer-funded Beehive and watched our people peacefully protesting, but refused to go and listen to them, as it is your duty to do, and instead, played loud music at varying times of the night and turned water sprinklers upon them, then watched while good New Zealanders, advocating for their human rights, were viciously attacked by police on your orders, or through your inaction? When you said nothing? And each of you continued to stand by — silent — while the living souls of this country were mandated to get an experimental injection that caused harm — and while you were absolved of the requirement to have it?

The living souls of this land have written countless open letters and pleaded with you to safeguard their freedoms, yet it all seems to have fallen on deaf ears, with mainstream media just as guilty.

Those freedoms that our ancestors fought hard for on our behalf — and won. That is what is at stake.

There have been innumerable opportunities for you to bravely speak out, to stand for our Bill of Rights and the Nuremberg Code, but you have not. You have remained silent. A “government” subservient to evil off-shore cabals, working in concert with a toothless lily-livered opposition — in name only — who don’t call those in government out on it because they serve the same masters.

Well, I am calling you all out on it. And ANZAC Day couldn’t be a more appropriate day to do so. In the name of all who fought for our freedom yesterday, in the name of all who have called you out on it over the past three years, and in the name of our descendants of tomorrow. We, the people, are peacefully saying we do not consent to you giving away our Bill of Rights, our Unalienable Freedoms, and the Sovereignty of our country — New Zealand. If you cannot stand for those key principles with us, then you must peacefully stand down.

Are you haunted by this acquiescence to tyranny? At what cost have you sold your soul — or let it lie dormant? There is no price that could ever meet the cost of one’s soul — for if you lose your soul you have lost everything. No pay-packet, no illusion of power — nothing — will ever compensate for the loss of one’s soul. Not ever. Speak out before it is too late. Be true to the spiritual essence of who you really are.

Unless you stand up and speak out for our freedom and the sovereignty of our country — and the time is late for this now — almost too late — it would be better if you don’t attend the Dawn Service this year — but if you do, and if you lay a wreath at the cenotaph of the fallen and if you have still not spoken out — then, in the opinion of many Kiwis, — and it is sad to say this — the fallen would probably prefer you did not attend. And, if you do go, and you bow your head on ANZAC Day, bow it in shame, until you are able to stand up and speak out for our human rights, the sovereignty of our country, and for the freedoms of all living souls of New Zealand.

For that is the best acknowledgement for our Brave — the very best of all.

Age shall not weary them nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.”

  1. Another wonderfully crafted angle for us to digest. I was asked today if I was going to a service. I said no as not too sure if I support everything about the service anymore as we don’t have freedom or sovereignty. We do still have trauma in families and people who have big gaps in their families from what happened at that war. My love to you Mary. Thank You. Tracey x

    • Thank you so much for your comment Tracey. I understand how you feel, but In many ways I think it is important that the “government” sees that Kiwis care passionately enough about those who stood for our freedom, and the sovereignty of our country, that they do show up at the ANZAC Day service to honour their brave. It is a service for them. Thanks again for your input.

      • Awesome letter, and account of what is happening. Our politicians have turned their backs on our nation.
        They are more interested in allowing the UN and WEF gobble us up – than they are in protecting our rights and freedoms.
        Follow the money – it will surely lead to their pockets.

  2. Please find a way to count the numbers of all those voters who would like to see a new form of government which is believably democratic.
    Once you have the numbers you have the power. Once counted we can decide how to exercise that power.
    Until we know our numbers we don’t have any power at all.

  3. All wars are bankers wars,fought for the benefit of the elite,using the peasants as cannon-fodder and to repay the nations debt after its over.The nonsense spoken “Fought for our freedom” is just a propaganda phrase to keep the sheep decieved

    • Thank you for your comment Anon. I hear you. As mentioned in the first sentence of the article, I left aside the true causes of those wars and emphasised that most understood at the time that they were going to fight for our freedom.

  4. Well said Mary Hobbs. Thats exactly it.

    I stand up for stand for our Bill of Rights and the Nuremberg Code. I Do Not Consent to these rights being demolished by our current political Govt ‘ their tight controlling network of UN/WHO/WEF who are trying to manipulate us to their control. I am a Sovreign HumanBeing of God’ s Law Only, not to be controlled by officials of Govts & above, who take power into their own hand to control made up to suit yourselves mankind laws. I definitely Do Not Approve or Consent.

  5. I skimmed through the article. I thought about writing my own critique but it is such a long piece of writing that i decided i’ll use chatgpt – i asked it to critique the work and this is what it said. You can go run it through chatgpt yourself YMMV:

    This passage appears to be a personal reflection on the sacrifice of New Zealanders in World War I and II and the ways in which the country has changed since then. The author highlights the enormous cost of the wars in terms of human life, injuries, and trauma suffered by those who fought and nursed the wounded. The author also asserts that the soldiers fought to keep the country free from the tyranny of fascism and communism and to maintain sovereignty and independence from oppressive cultures.

    However, the passage takes a political turn and accuses the United Nations and the World Health Organization of corruption and attempts to create a “one-world government” that would destroy the sovereignty of countries like New Zealand. The author also criticizes the government’s response to these organizations and their policies, specifically their handling of water infrastructure and the rollout of COVID-19 vaccines.

    While the author is entitled to their opinions, some of the claims made about the UN, WHO, and the government’s handling of various issues lack evidence and appear to be based on conspiracy theories. Additionally, the passage does not provide a balanced view of the current state of the world or acknowledge the progress made in international cooperation and human rights since the world wars.

    • Hence the reason I do not indulge chatgpt. I do not consent. I do not hand my practice of reply over to a bot. I do not have any wish to slowly lose the skill of critical thought by using a device, robot and AI. I respect others choices and recognise the lure of convenience. Upon reading the chatgpt interpretation I can see clearly whom is at the helm of programming this AI

    • chatgpt has no soul. It is programmed A.I. and as such gives no view other than what its oligarch “programmers’ dictate. Hidden responses from the very ones who own the organisations such as the UN and WHO. Hidden, they assume a superiority that is false. Covert attacks on democracy. I don’t engage with machines without soul.

    • Lol, spending Anzac Day running the opinions of ideological opponents thru ChatGPT for fact checking takes a special kind of loser. Get a life bro. Don’t worry about clowns like this Mary, keep up the good work!

    • Meagain wrote in part;
      “some of the claims made about the UN, WHO, and the government’s handling of various issues lack evidence and appear to be based on conspiracy theories”
      This is not conspiracy, everything is documented on the WEF and UN Web Sites. Go there and see for yourself. Look into the background of the man in charge of the UN and who funds it for starters. Then ask yourself about New Zealand’s historically high excess death rate, currently sitting at 15% and ask why nothing has been said about this in the news or anywhere else for that matter? This should be headline news. New Zealanders are dying in unprecedented numbers, Why? The points Mary makes in this letter are pertinent and relevant, there are a lot of unanswered questions that New Zealanders want answers to. We all have to stand up and be counted.

      • Thank you Anon. You make excellent factual points and links to the corrupt organisations mentioned were provided in the article, which it doesn’t seem that Meagain looked at.

  6. Always enjoy your articles Mary. Well written with the heart and humanity so desperately needed in these times. Your style of writing may become stilted with the referencing required to prove to those readers whom doubt. Your style is great just as it is with each piece. I enjoy researching ideas for myself inspired by many channels that information takes, strengthening the skill of critical thinking

  7. Thanks so much for your feedback Waison. I value it.

    I do try to provide valuable links to back up my statements from experts in the international field who have been silenced through government sponsorship of the media. and I try to balance that without it interfering with the flow of the article which, as you say, comes from the heart.
    Thank you again.

  8. Well said Mary, our thoughts entirely. I wish our 10 or so small ‘freedom’ parties could combine as a Union party, to actually gain some balance of power.

  9. I wonder how many in government would have the courage to read this indictment, either because they have been primed to rubish any correspondence from Alternate Media or simply an acknowledgment of the Truth would be a bitter pill to swallow! Furthermore, of those in authority who do read it, would they muster courage to stand up!

  10. This is so poignant Mary. Your work speaks for all the brave souls, who know how heartless and egarious the MP’s in NZ have behaved. They have indeed betrayed their very souls. Thank you

    • Thanks for your comments Shel. I do hope they have the courage to rapidly stand for the truth. Surely there must be one or two among them all who will. If not, they need to immediately stand down.

  11. This is so poignant Mary. Your work speaks for all the brave souls, who know how heartless and egregious the MP’s in NZ have behaved. They have indeed betrayed their very souls. Thank you

  12. 😂😂😂😂🤣🤣🤣🤣😂😂😂😂

    So much for alleged intelligent machines, they have a lot to learn. Nice try though 😂😂😂

  13. Thank you Mary,
    For saying it How It Is

    I lost my
    Great Grandad to WWI, he died at home after being ill for many years from being gassed.

    My Grandad grew up with no father, and was not allowed to see him when he was home in bed unwell. His Mum said it was too upsetting.

    My Grandad served in WWII for six years

    He received his medals, put them in a draw in a tobacco case and never looked at them again. He said they were made of putty, worthless. Meaningless. In comparison to the six years of his life away from his home.

    He spoke of his many war experiences thankfully recorded by the RSA in 2018, shortly before he died at the age of 101.

    I have never been so proud to say; I love my grandfather’s and I too have fought in this WWIII as best I could, a single Mum with two little ones.

    The game of Monopoly – tax man, banker, jail, and the symbolic pieces used as we go around and around in circles playing their game.

    When we take off our manopoly piece and stop playing their game, we become even more empowered soulful spiritual beings acting from the heart, after seeing right through the deception and corruption.

    Imagine if everyone did this.

    I’ve said no to being a tax payer, I was not given full disclosure when I applied for an IRD number and I believe I was mislead into becoming one. I actually asked for full disclosure as to where my tax money for the last 10 years has gone, to no avail. Was the IRD ever gazetted? Is it a fraudulent entity? Until I have these answers, I do not consent.

    The local principal received a notice of liability with love and respect, but carefully informing him, of the fines for imposing mask wearing or vaccination of my little ones.

    I corrected my status within the NZ Jurisdiction asserting my rights, as after studying the legal system I have come to a realisation I have no rights unless I assert them, informing the Prime Minister and various other political people that I am a living being and now with a un rebutted affidavit I believe is a powerful document.

    I want to BE the change I want to see.

    I’ve written two books, to help serve humanity during this time ❤️‍🩹

    In light and love ✨🙏✨❤️‍🩹✨

    • Thank you Louise for relaying the stories of your grandfathers. It seems they knew. I would be interested to read about your grandfather’s experiences. It is great that he had them recorded.
      They would be proud of you . Please message me with the titles of your books. I am interested in reading them.

  14. The peadofilic WEF lgbtqp+ NZ Government and the gutless traitors in MSM truly are the lowest scum of the Earth
    One look from the fallen NZ soldier, real men, whose heroic blood runs deep in the sons and daughters of the returned and will never be erased, would vaporise the perverted cowardl, hypocrites who dare to attend a dawn service.

  15. Outstanding, Mary. Bravo. You nailed it. Thank you for writing this. I wrote a one paragraph slam on the political peacocks but you had all the details.

    Birthrights for porridge

    They fought & died for our rights & freedoms. Hard won rights & freedoms handed back a century later by their descendants for fear of a virus. Politicians and bureaucrats suits emblazoned with poppies. The very same who trampled those rights & freedoms. Peacocks on parade making a mockery not homage. Leave our honoured dead in peace, so their spirits may bask in the NZ that was and not see what it has become.

    Genesis 25:29-34

  16. The politicians betrayed the people, and don’t care about what our soldiers fought for. Another great article Mary.

    • Thank you anon. Much appreciated. They do indeed betray the people and all that our soldiers thought they were defending.

  17. Brilliant thanks Mary. Sent to every MP in NZ I assume. And to the cowards otherwise known as the MSM. I have written many letters, logical & serene initially, to every MP in NZ, and all media outlets. Hundreds of letters/emails.
    My duty I believe in this madness. The number of replies I can count on one hand. I still blaze away, now with complete honesty and anger at their complete lack of integrity, and utter stupidity. I get even less replies, but feel better. Keep up the good work.

  18. Hi Mary,
    I would like to have a private conversation with you in support of what you have just written.
    Is that a possibility.
