Dear friends,

I am writing to let you know of the new website:
which is currently soley devoted to the Section 59 debate currently taking place in New Zealand Aotearoa.

Sue Bradford, Greens MP is attempting to make the use of force in parental discipline of children illegal.
If Sue Bradford's bill is passed through Parliament, then many many good parents will be made criminals.
The Police force and CYFS will be entering homes and forcefully evicting children who they have heard have been smacked.
Bradford's poorly written bill will surely be more harmful to New Zealand's children than it will help them.

Whichever way you feel on this issue, I would encourage you to email your MPs. will help you do this.
is a blog where myself and two friends post our views, and other people's views, as well as news clips, related to the Section 59 debate. also has news of the peaceful protest marches to take place on Wednesday 28 March in Wellington and Christchurch.  It has constantly updated news on the whole Section 59 debate.

Please check it out, and feel free to ask questions, or comment - or disagree!

Kind Regards,

Andy Moore

if Section59 is repealed - or replaced...
