Mike Butler has prepared an excellent appraisal of the Constitutional Review carried out by a Parliamentary Select Committee in 2005 - see his Breaking Views blog "Be careful with the constitution" here: http://breakingviewsnz.blogspot.co.nz/2 ... roken.html
He outlines how the committee found that our constitution is not 'broken' and does not need fixing.
Against that backdrop, the new constitutional review is simply designed to achieve the ambitions of the Maori Party to include the Treaty of Waitangi as a cornerstone within a new New Zealand Constitution.
We are inviting people who want to oppose this new Treaty-based constitution to register here: http://www.nzcpr.com/petition_CONSTITUTION.php
We will be running an aggressive campaign to oppose a new constitution and to push for the total removal of race-based bias in government, phasing out divisive politics and policies that support race-based separation and or preference - removing Maori seats, race-based laws, and the Waitangi Tribunal.
The NZCPR is committed to public institutions being prohibited from discriminating against or giving preferential treatment to groups or individuals based on race, and will continue the fight for a colour blind state.
