Police and Parliament Security Blinded by Porn Parade

Family First NZ says the police and parliamentary security have failed to uphold a ban on the Boobs on Bikes parade entering Parliament Grounds and is a continuation of the police’s lax and liberal approach to an offensive parade.

“It is a sad day when pornography can be promoted on the grounds of our Parliament,” says Bob McCoskrie, National Director of Family First NZ.

“However, the most disturbing aspect is that despite the Speaker of the House banning the parade because of its commercial aspect, the parliamentary security and the police have joined in the festivities and failed to uphold the ban. Simply because they walked onto the grounds rather than ride in on bikes doesn’t change the fact that it is a still a commercial event advertising the hard core pornography industry.”

“The porn industry has simply giving a symbolic ‘2-finger wave’ to our lawmakers in their own backyard for their complete inaction and concern for families. Our politicians have failed to deal with the problem and harmful effects of pornography to families, children and women and the negative stereotypes and aggressive sexual behaviour it encourages.”

“Until a political party or individual MP with backbone is willing to have the Crimes Act ‘toughened up’ to more clearly define ‘offensive behaviour’, the problem will continue.”

“The inaction of the police and parliament security to uphold the Speaker’s ruling is a disgrace,” says Mr McCoskrie.
