Auckland MarchThe March for Democracy held November 21st 2009 was a peaceful protest march against the government ignoring the wishes of its voters. We would like the government to take our voting and voice into much more serious account. We would like the government to return to their roots of representative government. The ignoring of the recent Citizens Initiated Referendum, where 87.4% voters asked for change, is just one example of the trend away from listening to the people of New Zealand.
The March was not organised by a political party or a religious group. We do not support any political party or subscribe to any religious view. The ongoing campaign is being professionally organised by citizens for citizens.
The March was a family friendly event for all New Zealanders regardless of race, creed or political affiliation, getting together and Marching for a better, more democratic New Zealand.
