Read the statement of claim

The Herald has the statement of claim filed by the Free Speech Coalition. Here’s some interesting aspects that show you how badly Auckland Council has acted.

  • The decision to cancel was made before a health and safety plan was due to be submitted, showing that health and safety concerns must be phony
  • One of the plaintiffs had already booked airfares from Dunedin to attend, so Goff’s actions have caused people to be out of pocket
  • The organisers did not expect the venue to provide security. They are very experienced in providing security for events including several larger events in Australia
  • RFA refused to engage with the organisers about their alleged security concerns
  • Goff said on Radio NZ that it was his decision to cancel the licence but now claims it was made independently
  • The organisers were unable to get a private venue at ASB Showgrounds as Goff is a vice patron of them
