This GCSB bill allows the New Zealand Government to SPY on any one in New Zealand. "a vote here is a vote for freedom"
The Law Society has made a stinging attack on proposed law changes
governing the GCSB spy agency, saying they effectively transform it from
a foreign intelligence agency to a domestic one without any
justification being given.
InternetNZ has also raised serious concerns about the bill before Parliament, saying its powers are too broad.
Submissions on the Government Communications Security Bureau and Related
Legislation Bill closed on Friday, and hearings on it will begin early

(GCSB) illegally spied on New Zealand resident Kim Dotcom and may have illegally spied on 88 other New Zealanders.
the National Government is doing about this is not to hold an
independent inquiry to see what has been going on and ensure it doesn’t
happen again. Just the opposite -- it’s reaction is to change the law so
the GCSB can spy on New Zealanders legally.
John Key argues the
bill is a clarification but that is simply not true. The bill grants the
GCSB expanded powers and functions and transforms it from an agency
focussed on foreign threats to one that also spies on New Zealanders.
New Zealand Law Society, not generally considered a conspiracy theorist
organisation, said the bill allows the GCSB; “under a cloak of
co-operation with some other specified agency, to perform any activities
that it chooses”.
The bill’s safeguards do not protect New Zealanders freedom of expression and freedom from invasive search.
is no basis for giving GCSB unjustifiable powers to spy on New
Zealanders at the expense of our freedom. We didn’t agree to this.
