The Ministry of Menz Affairs Black Ribbon Campaign today in Red Square, Tauranga received a surprising amount of positive encouragement and support from Saturday shoppers and cruising teenagers. Busking added to the event stimulating interest and goodwill and included nursery rhymes for families who stopped on their way past. A number of people spoken to were surprised that there wasn’t a Ministry of Men’s Affairs. Fathers, mothers, grandparents, adults and youth recognized that men are not treated well in Aoteroa today. Some were shocked to learn that the Ministry of Women’s Affairs had already been given over $100 million of our hard-earned taxes while $0 had been provided for men’s issues. The 30-point flyer prompted much supportive comment. A surprising number of women especially were on ‘our’ side. Concern about the welfare of boys was evident. The Ministry of Menz Affairs thanks Tauranga for its support and we’ll see you in the main street of Manurewa next Saturday. For further information phone us at (09)4247762 or (0274)799745

  1. Women are also the mothers,sisters,grandmothers and wives/partners/friends of the men who have been victimised by white fibbon group and family caught….and they feel the pinch when someone close to them gets vicitmised by the system,family caught and the white fibbon group. They should voice their concern openly.
