Call now goes out for sending emails to the Attorney-General Dr. Michael Cullen of New Zealand

Filed under: General — Intrepid @ 3:16 pm

The call has gone out to continue the pressure on the New Zealand government by emailing Attorney-General Dr. Michael Cullen of New Zealand. kim.mackenzie@parliament.govt.nz

(Show those in government that fathers & men won’t stand for politics over law email: kim.mackenzie@parliament.govt.nz )

In a landmark case that will affect the Father’s right worldwide the New Zealand government will be faced with dismissing a properly certified lawyer applicant after being turned down by the Wellington District Law Society for his activist work on the behalf of the father’s & men’s right work. Get supporters from any source. Past email form letter emails OK!

    Would one of the more eloquent chaps like to suitably word a letter to the Cullen bloke and I’m sure that most of us would send it. Problem is one of apathy – the time to write even one simple note like this far exceeds the perceived gain for any one of us but if many of us send the same letter, then he [Cullen] just might take notice and realise that these forums are alive. Incidentally to all those that wanted bumper stickers, it’s happening – I simply have not been able to respond to the 200+ enquiries (I have a living to make!). Cheers James.

    Thanks Pitbull – you’ve inspired me to add a bit more. I enclose the text of the letter and if we can get 50 of these sent to Cullen, perhaps it may have some effect…. here goes:

    Dear Dr Cullen,

    I wish it to be known that I along with thousands of normal middle of the road men in NZ am appalled at the recent decision of the Wellington District Law Society, in which a properly certified lawyer applicant was declined on the grounds of his being involved in activist work representing men in cases of father’s & men’s rights.

    It is relevant to raise the issue of the broader context, whereby many men and fathers are unable to find lawyers who take a sufficiently pro-men stance. The majority of the recent social legislation has been made by women on behalf of women and for the benefit of women to the extent that men are no longer considered to have a place other than to provide for and be responsible for. It is time that men took a more public stance on these issues and unless these concerns are recognised by your government, I fear that major trouble will be on the horizon.

    I will be watching this case closely with much interest, as will men’s and father’s rights activists world-wide.

    Sincerely yours,

    xxxxxxx

    Dear Dr Cullen

    I am writing to you because I have a problem.
    You see, my wife has just left me, and I don’t know what to do.

    She is saying all this stuff about how I’m a risk to the kids, and how someone at Women’s Refuge is telling her to get the kids to say I’ve been in their rooms at night.

    She’s come out with this stuff about how I hit her back in 1967, and that I have a problem with violence.

    I am writing to you, Dr Cullen, because as a man you might be able to help me.

    I don’t have much faith in women lawyers, and just can’t fiind a good men’s lawyer anywhere.

    I desperately need one who is well versed in false allegations (beleive me – I have never touched my kids (I was getting plenty of you-know-what until last Christmas, when she met some 27year old guy at our Fishing club), and I only hit my wife back in 1967 after she threated to break the neck of my favourite dog Rufus.

    I have spoken to six women lawyers already, and I am just left feeling they don’t believe me.
    Three told me to give up and save my money. Two said i should just do some anti-violence programme and accept I won’t be alone with my kids again, and the last one just laughed at me.

    I have heard of some lawyer that is good with men, but I think he’s been banned from practising – Peter Zorro, or something like that.

    I really feel he is my man. Do you know how I can get hold of him?

    Please, please don’t fob me off – at 59 I don’t feel i can take another heart attack, and my mates at the fishing club, although they’ve offered me free accomodation at a men’s only cabin, I heard just this morning that some woman has gone and laid a complaint with the Human Right’s Commission.

    As a man, Dr Cullen, I honestly believe you can understand where I’m coming from.

    Your’s sincerely,

    Mr H R DDunbi.

    Dear Mr H R Ddunbi,

    I hate to break it to you mate, but there aren’t any men in the labour party. The ones that aren’t gay are just big girls blouses. I believe Cullen is not Gay.
