We are all New Zealanders
National MP Pansy Wong says it’s time to reinstate the shared values that make us proud to be New Zealanders and to look
to the things that unite us.
“We are all New Zealanders and we all love this country,” she says.
“The idea that some people cannot have the same depth of feeling for this country because of the colour of their skin or
their ethnic background is bigoted nonsense.”
Her comments come in response the National Front’s demonstration at Parliament yesterday.
Mrs Wong describes the front as a small, fascist underbelly, hell-bent on causing division and destroying New Zealand’s
“The thousands of people who have demonstrated against the National Front in both Christchurch and Wellington show that
New Zealanders want inclusion, not division.
“Only with the inclusion of all people, from all walks of life and all racial backgrounds, all being treated equally as
New Zealanders, will New Zealand prosper as a successful nation in the modern world,” says Mrs Wong
