Response To ANZAC Day Protests


ACT’s Rural Communities and Veterans spokesman Mark
Cameron responds to cancellations
and protests
of ANZAC Day commemorations in
Wellington:

How bloody lucky I am to live in rural
New Zealand. Today’s very well-attended dawn service in
Dargaville was a perfect, dignified commemoration of the
courage of the ANZACs.

Meanwhile in
Wellington… Officials cancelled the National Commemoration
Service because of a bit of wind, as if that would have
bothered our veterans.

Then when Kiwis gathered
anyway, anti-Israel protestors showed up to promote their
own agenda, and another group dyed the bucket fountain red
and pasted demands to stop “normalizing ANZAC
violence”.

These pitiful attempts to detract
from ANZAC Day are not at all indicative of the feelings of
mainstream New Zealand. But of course activists in
Wellington get outsized attention from the
media.

Next ANZAC day I’d like to see the news
cameras get out of the cities, and come experience an ANZAC
service in Dargaville, or Taihape, or Lumsden. Because
regardless of nonsense in Wellington, in rural New Zealand
We Will Remember
Them.
