  编者按:新西兰著名主持人、专栏作家克尔·伍德罕姆(KerreWoodham)11月23日在《新西兰先驱报》发文对法轮功试图通过威逼的方法参加奥克兰游行的卑劣行为表示不屑。11月30日,奥克兰圣诞游行顺利举行,克尔·伍德罕姆再度发文,“很高兴看到游行基金会采取了强硬态度,并没有屈服于这个欺凌弱小的游说团体,也同样高兴看到法官明察秋毫”。

  法轮功今天在它争取获得奥克兰圣诞游行参与权的努力中彻底失败。

  很好。我很高兴看到游行基金会采取了强硬态度,并没有屈服于这个欺凌弱小的游说团体,也同样高兴看到法官明察秋毫。

  在他的判决中,法官Tony Randerson说法轮功在世界各地肆意进行所谓的抗议中国共产党的宣传,并试图吸引和改变世界舆论。但是,这些活动与圣诞游行的主旨格格不入。

  太对了。我和法官的意见完全一致。歇斯底里的法轮功支持者们似乎并不理解处事逻辑。他们认为如果你不支持他们在圣诞游行中不请自到的行为,那你就是中国政府的傀儡。

  因为我拒绝支持他们参加圣诞游行的企图,三、四名法轮功成员已经手持标语来到NewsTalkZB电台外派发宣传单。

  我再重申一遍:只要法律允许,他们在任何地方,即使在我的工作场所外抗议,我都没意见。用整天的时间站在太阳下,滋扰他人以将自己的意志强加于他人,这想必是一件很惬意的事情。

  年老的法轮功追随者们很幸运,他们不用每天去工作。

  你们自个儿快消失吧!抗议滚蛋!

  在这个屈服于少数群体主张的时代,很高兴能看到大多数人的意见偶尔地能够占据统治地位。

  诸位,好好享受圣诞游行吧,但大伙儿谁也别指望天国乐队能让你们的耳根子真正清静。



Kerre Woodham: Common sense wins

Falun Gong has failed in its bid to force its way into Auckland's Santa Parade today.

Good. I'm glad the trust stuck to its guns and refused to cave in to the bullying from this lobby group and I'm glad the judge saw reason.

In his judgment, Justice Tony Randerson said that because of persecution by the Chinese Communist Party, the group had staged worldwide protests to draw attention and mobilise world opinion.

But, he said, it was not appropriate for the Christmas parade to provide a platform for such protests.

Quite. I'm with the judge. I have no problem with members of Falun Gong protesting in public places and staging displays to recruit followers.

But the hysterical supporters of this group don't seem to comprehend logic or reason.

If you don't support their bid to gatecrash the Santa Parade, you are a puppet of the Chinese Government, and as good as condoning the torture and killing of Falun Gong members in China.

Three or four members of the group have taken to standing outside NewsTalk ZB with their banners handing out pamphlets to all and sundry because I refused to support their attempt to get into the Santa Parade.

I repeat: I have no problem with them protesting anywhere, even outside my workplace, provided it's legal.

It would be nice to be able to spend the whole day, standing outside in the sun, making a nuisance of yourself by hectoring people about something you passionately believe in.

Lucky old Falun Gong followers that they don't have to turn up to jobs.

Knock yourselves out.

Protest away.

But in this age of caving in to strident minority groups, it's nice to see that occasionally common sense can reign supreme.

Enjoy the Santa Parade everyone, and I really don't think that the Divine Land Marching Band will be missed by anyone.
