NZ Parliament passes motion in support of peaceful protest and re-examination of election result in Iran

This afternoon, the New Zealand Parliament unanimously passed the following motion from Green MP, Keith Locke:

That this House expresses its support for all Iranian citizens who strive for a free and democratic society; asks the Iranian government not to use force against peaceful demonstrators; calls for an end to government restrictions on the media; and supports an impartial examination of the recent Iranian election result in the light of widespread concerns.

Keith Locke has a media statement on the Green Party’s website. Good work, and about time.
