    Greens Decide Parents Should Now Be Listened To

    Greens Decide Parents Should Now Be Listened To

    Family First NZ says it is highly ironic, and hypocritical, for the Greens to be demanding that the government listen to the concerns of parents worried about the health risks of locating huge telecommunications tower masts next to pre-schools and schools.

    Green Party Press Release “Dear Helen, please listen to the parents” – 23 July 2008

    “For the past two years, the Green party has completely ignored the voice of over 80% of NZ’ers who opposed Green MP Sue Bradford’s anti-smacking bill, and have shown no concern that over 50% of our parents have admitted breaking the law and are risking investigation by police and CYF,” says Bob McCoskrie, National Director of Family First NZ.

    “The Greens are completely correct to demand that the concerns of parents are given weight regarding the location of phone towers and associated health risks, but they can’t have it both ways.”

    “They can’t ignore the views of parents on how they want to raise their kids legally and reasonably, yet demand that parents be heard on other issues.”

    “The Greens need to respect the important role of parents on all issues – not just those that they agree with them on,” says Mr McCoskrie.
