    Are you talking about this one that COLFO are making people aware of?

    Next Thursday 14 November COLFO will be in Wellington, joining voices with the “50 Shades of Green” pressure group to march on Parliament.

    The purpose of the protest is to make the voices of rural communities heard. Across a number of fronts, with firearms law being just one, the Government appears to be targeting rural communities and lifestyles. So we are encouraging our members and supporters to join in on this march.

    COLFO will be manning an information stall on the grounds of Parliament where signage, caps, public information brochures and flags will ensure firearms owners are visible in their solidarity with farmers and rural communities.

    More information available on the '50 Shades of Green' website and on our Facebook event page.

    The group will be meeting at 11am at Wellington's Civic Square. We plan to arrive on Parliament's grounds at about 1pm.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    I really feel for rural NZ, the attitude of this govt towards them is hard to fathom.

    Streetparks are numbered - I think Palmy has the same sort of system from memory? - just pay for your numbered slot at the tombstone shaped meter thingy

    Of course if you have a ute that is a commercial vehicle and loading zones are good..

    Numbered parks are max 2 hours.

    You'd probably be better off parking at a train station like Petone and catching a train in to the CBD.

    I'm not promoting this. Just for people's information.
    No mention of firearms legislation.

    Next Thursday 14 November COLFO will be in Wellington, joining voices with the “50 Shades of Green” pressure group to march on Parliament.

    The purpose of the protest is to make the voices of rural communities heard. Across a number of fronts, with firearms law being just one, the Government appears to be targeting rural communities and lifestyles. So we are encouraging our members and supporters to join in on this march.

    Rural NZ has had a gutsful !!!

    Please come to our March in Wellington, we need your support !!!
    WHEN: 14 November, 2019

    TIME: 11 AM – Civic Square. Expect to be at Parliament 1 PM. Welcome speeches at Civic Square, 65 Victoria St, Te Aro, Wellington (see map under the registration form).

    OUR PURPOSE: To demonstrate and communicate that we will not be ridden over roughshod by a political agenda which shows no regard for genuine community wellbeing or genuine democratic consultation. The rural sector is being excluded from critical policy making decisions at the same time that anti farming lobbyists are being ushered in. We are calling the Government out. We deserve a level playing field and a fair go.

    A FAIR GO. That’s all NZ Farming communities are asking for.

    We are the men and women who grow your food. We work in the rain, sun, snow and wind to take care of this land, our animals and families.

    We ask for a fair go on Emissions (Net ZCB) – We own land, which is home to hundreds of thousands, even millions of trees and yet our emissions reductions targets are unnecessarily high and ‘gross’ while other emitters have ‘net’ targets which will be met by planting what remains of our farms and communities in trees.

    We ask for a fair go on Water Regulations. We are custodians of vast waterways, a role we have embraced over the last 20 years and into which huge investments have been made. We were not properly consulted on the Freshwater Reforms. None of our elected representatives were permitted at the table to provide a voice on our behalf. Meanwhile environmental lobby groups were ushered in to share in the spoils of an unfettered political agenda. We need local solutions to local problems, and we need to be heard.

    We ask for a fair go on Land Use Changes (ETS): The Government never originally intended to return carbon credits to foresters for carbon sequestration, the forestry industry lobbied for over 6 years to achieve this outcome. This artificial market for sequestered units will drive escalating afforestation by international and domestic investors at an unprecedented scale should the ‘free market’ be given its head and allowed to bolt onto our hills. Our Communities are not carbon sinks, our people matter more than that.

    We ask a fair go for Mental Health. The Farmers of New Zealand and their families are being painted as environmental vandals by their own Government. The persistent focus on farming being a ‘problem’ is perpetuating the groundswell of disgusting behaviour targeting farmers and even their children by extremist activists intent on furthering their own agendas. This campaign against rural businesses and their families can not be ignored or worse, given credibility by the Government, or rural families will ultimately pay the price.

    PARKING: Parking in Wellington is limited, we sugggest parking at either Petone, Waikanae trainstations, trains run on the hour. Or fill a bus for the return journey. Example Masterton is $21 per person return for a full bus.

    PROTEST GENERAL RULES: We are there to elevate our voices and present our concerns. Please remember we are representing more than ourselves, we request respectful behaviour at all times.

    AFTER MARCH: TBC there will be food and beverages

    SIGNAGE: Be creative with your signs, here’s some tips for effective sign creation:

    Have a clear message
    Use humour and wit
    Keep it simple
    Remember that presentation matters
    Be passionate
    No personal attacks
    Play the game, not the man, nothing personal. We reserve the right to ban offensive signs.

    Yip, and then she has the cheek to brag about increased dairy trades with China. Does she think milk is made in a city?

    She sends Clarke out every morning and he comes back with a couple of bottles, where he gets them from she don't know...she just checks they are not produced in the PRC and all is good.

    When I was there to speak to the Committee (parked close to get out of the city quick and get home, long drive) it cost $24 for Wilsons Parking carpark, for 4 hours.

    There are quite often bays open at the bottom of Molesworth, along parliament gardens. Those are $9 for 2hrs.

    If you will be in town for the whole day, parking at Westpac Stadium is a good option. $12 for the day.

    Planting a few pine trees on Parliament lawns - will maybe offset some of the hot air from within the buildings

    Several MPs came out to talk

    I would sum up the reception as follows:

    National (? Todd Muller) - lukewarm
    Labour (Damien O'Connor) - got heckled and laughed at
    NZ First (Shane Jones) - pompous prick, I am surprised nobody set their dog on him...

    The usual collection of wobbly head-nodders in the background - even old crusher Collins made an appearance.
