Fightback supports Internet MANA as an alliance between radical indigenous and progressive tau iwi forces, challenging the neoliberal consensus.
Party founder Kim Dotcom recently hinted that Julian Assange may be speaking at an upcoming Internet Party event on September 15th. Assange is facing charges for rape.
Providing a platform for Assange, and other men with a misogynist history, discredits the movement against transnational exploitation and repression (as represented by the TPPA, Five Eyes, and the GCSB in Aotearoa/NZ). Only a movement which opposes gendered violence can unite the oppressed to fight for self-determination.
Fightback opposes any platform for Julian Assange.
