Racist pamphlets distributed in Ohariu

NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 9/03/2017

An anonymous group calling itself Rolling Thunder has distributed racist pamphlets in Ohariu, Peter Dunne says.

The MP has condemned the pamphlets, which he says are about Treaty of Waitangi issues, as "disgraceful, despicable racist bigotry".

"Ohariu is a vibrantly multicultural electorate and the views expressed in these leaflets stand in stark opposition to the values I have had continually expressed to me by the people of this diverse, open and tolerant electorate," he said on Thursday.

"I acknowledge the right of free speech, but I am nonetheless outraged that this type of nasty, racist drivel is being circulated by some anonymous group."
