The Freedoms & Rights Coalition
We jealously watch worldwide news as countries like Denmark, UK, Finland, Czech
Republic and more, lift their mandates and COVID restrictions, and we still sit here in New Zealand oppressed and suppressed.
With the rest of the world beginning to wake up and acknowledge that mandates no
longer serve a purpose in democratic societies, why is New Zealand not following?
With our country now having over 95% percentage vaccination rates, why is our Prime
Minister still digging in her heels, and refusing to set a date to release the mandates? Is
she really so cold-hearted towards the unvaxxed that she would continue to try and crush
and squeeze people out of having a livelihood?
In an interview for his personal opinion, we asked our leader and founder Brian Tamaki what his thoughts were on this.
Brian Tamaki had this to say, “Mandates must be gone by March! More specifically, all
gone by 1st of March 2022, being the new deadline for many key workforces to be
boosted, otherwise they will join the ranks of the ostracised and callously labelled
‘unvaxxed’. Why should they lose their jobs when they chose to not take any more jabs?
They have had enough.”
He goes on to say, “The mandates are pretty pointless now that 95% are already
vaccinated and now only achieve the purpose of unnecessarily alienating people.”
He then cuts to the heart of the issue saying, “I believe Jacinda and her government plan
to continue excessive control, and take our country down the path of UN ideology of
Socialism, which has never been a part of our New Zealand way of life.”
No wonder TFRC see so many Kiwis coming out in their thousands to protests. They
absolutely can not stand the CONTROL this government is trying to exert over them. The
pushback against this control continues with our persistent commitment to see these
Protest & Parliament
Last week The Freedoms & Rights Coalition team again reached out to The Police
Commissioner’s office, and also High-ranking Politicians, to open up channels of
communication around lifting these horrendous vaccine mandates. It’s what we all
passionately want, especially those currently camped out at Parliament. Mandates are
now superfluous to our needs. MANDATES MUST BE GONE BY MARCH! Both parties
have engaged with us, but to date, we are still waiting for these parties to come back to
And as we wait, everybody seems to want a piece of the protest pie. It’s embarrassing to
see politicians, ex-politicians and wanna-be politicians clambering over the top of each
other for the limelight, attempting to speak on behalf of all the protestors and negotiate
with Police and the Government.
Let’s be clear, they do not speak on behalf of many of us in The Freedoms & Rights
Coalition. We are quite capable of doing that for ourselves, as we have been. We have no
political agenda. We simply care! Where were these political individuals over the past five
months as we ran an incredible 91 peaceful protests around the country? We could all
see this train-wreck coming and we were raising the alarm. We invited some of these
individuals to be a part of the initial leadership of the Coalition when it first formed, but
there was radio silence from their end. We now call out and question their genuine
motives in all of this. If they truly do care, they would have been there lending a hand and
conversing with us over these past five months. They would have been there alongside
us all, prepared to put everything on the line and risk arrest.
The Freedoms & Rights Coalition is now widely known to uphold our anti-mandates
position. We have never been anti-vax. Many of our events have been themed around
discrimination from mandates inflicted upon our beautiful country. Our supporters have
come out in their thousands...good, honest Kiwis, who have lost their hard-fought-for
careers across every industry within New Zealand. These are salt of the earth type
people, who are now ostracised in society. Many have never in their lives protesting but
have been so compelled to step out.
We are so proud of the supporters we represent. Despite what Jacinda will try and spin,
the majority are not your far-right extremists. The majority are not protestors who have
imported protests from overseas. The majority are pro-choice, not anti-vax or pro-vax.
Our people are Mums and Dads, Nanas and Grandads...family-focused, caring and
considerate Kiwis who do not appreciate being backed into a corner and given tyrannical
ultimatums over their careers if they do not consent to a personal medical procedure.
These are not sheep easily led. These are clued up, switched on, smart individuals who
know that blind compliance leads us as a country on a slippery slope.
We want all MANDATES GONE BY MARCH.
