“Great work Toby!
Next time you come across a political refugee from places like Iran just remember how brave these people are and how much some of them have endured in defending democracy and human rights.
Please also remember how precious democracy is and how lucky we are in New Zealand that we are able to fight for our rights without fearing arrest, torture or even death.
But, democracy cannot be taken for granted.
There is a gradual erosion of democracy here in NZ which we should all be very wary of. ” — Donna Miles
