On March 30, 2023, New Zealand Civil Liberties activist, former politician, and Pastor Billy Te Kahika was sentenced to 4 months in jail for breaching the New Zealand Covid-19 Health Response Act 2020 while protesting in a small peaceful protest against lockdown harm and the Government over reach.
Billy Te Kahika has been persecuted by the New Zealand Government for over twenty months and vilified endlessly by Government funded mainstream media. We are calling for a petition to direct the world's attention to Billy's plight and to ask the New Zealand Government for either a complete dismissal of charges or the removal of the prison sentence and any penalty. Billy is a non-violent family man and a Pastor, a community services contributor, and a former member of the New Zealand Army and Police with no previous convictions.
Murderers sentenced to home detention
During the past week, we have seen murderers sentenced to home detention and a freedom activist who used a car as a weapon against police given community service hours. What is happening to Billy is called persecution. If they can do this to Billy, they can do this to anyone.
Our goal is to reach 10,000 signatures at least, and we need your support. You can read more and sign the petition here: https://chng.it/6yJJ6N2mfK
