Why We Drove to Wellington

by

“In 2022-22 the New Zealand government enacted emergency laws, mandates, and a medical passport system that caused thousands of New Zealanders to lose jobs, businesses, homes and health.   When those people protested, they were ignored b their own government and media and demonized by their representatives as “a river of filth”. This is their story in their own words.”
So reads the opening frame in a new documentary, We Came Here for Freedom, Part 1 released three weeks ago by Henna Gaijin Studio, in association with Chantelle Baker’s Operation People ..

The Convoy to Wellington was a spontaneous mass movement driven by the desire for truth fairness, freedom and to be heard by the NZ Government. This documentary puts you there, and gives you the reasons why we went to Wellington, pure and simple.

A must-see important documentary to see what the mainstream media won’t tell you about the Wellington Protest addressing Government overreach.

Editor’s note:
Watching this was an emotional trip back to February earlier this year, when my wife and 11 yr old son joined the convoy here on New Zealand’s South Island. We started with 8 cars from the Upper Clutha and joined the main convoy coming from Invercargill, New Zealand’s southernmost point. We met at Timaru and continued on, capturing footage all along the way. We spontaneously kept driving as the convoy grew. We got on the ferry in Picton, and made our way to the first day of the protest on Parliament Grounds in Wellington.
I had been a photographer for United Press International in the states, and when I saw this was going to be an historic peaceful sit-in, I knew I had to report what I saw. For a brief moment I had the absurd thought to call UPI and see if they’d like me to cover this. Then, in the next moment, it dawned on me, they would never want what I was going to report. They had their narrative, and my reporting would disrupt that. So rather than having a raft of camera’s around my neck, I hauled out my mobile phone, gathered up what battery packs I had, and got to work. I covered much of what you seen in this documentary until the typhoon hit. On that day, we decided the best plan for the family was to leave and I’d possibly return alone. The hour we were leaving, the many images, interviews and other footage I had taken was strangely removed from my Telegram feed. At the same time my phone would no longer take a charge. I was interviewing people right up to the hour I left, but my phone finally died right then and there. Interesting timing. When I took the SD Card out of the phone to copy it onto my computer, I discovered all the files and data had been encrypted, (which I never do), and the only way to decrypt it was to fire up the phone, that now had no way to charge up. Fortunately, a local IT repair shop, here in Wanaka was able to track down enough used batteries, that we could not retrieve my material. I plan on re-posting all that was remotely date-wiped off my phone. I’m now convinced, from hearing similar stories, that the government nefariously zeroed in on my MAC address shortly before I left the Parliament Grounds and wiped my interviews and images. I’m in the process of re-posting my material, on more than one platform this time around. Please see my other posts, as they become available and the ones that are already on this and our other platforms.

Back to this film – It’s an important statement of what really happened. If you’re ready to handle the truth, and prepared to question the mainstream media, you will find this an eye-opener.
I was playing a song I’d written on the guitar called Voices, today on Christmas Day, and got choked up, and had to start again. The reason was, I had seen this film last night, and it brought back all the memories of 10th February, 2022, of seeing how peaceful everyday people who just wanted the government to address their grievances, and how the media twisted, (and in some cases orchestrated) to the opposite of what really happened in Wellington. We’d see and experience one thing, and the media would report something completely opposite on the evening news. That alone is enough to condemn “the machine”, especially when the thousands who were there, go back and tell their friends and family their eye-witness accounts of what really happened. It’s game over.
