Being deeply concerned with the direction that NZ was heading in, with the erosion of our rights, freedoms, and the blatant targeting of the Agricultural Industry with impractical unworkable legislation, around freshwater, carbon, land confiscation, and the slow strangling of rural communities nationwide etc etc. Having all stood for AdvanceNZ in the 2020 Election, they subsequently resigned from the Party, in order to fully focus on AAG and its objectives.
Rob, Fred and Heather Meri are all involved with the Rural Sector and rural communities. As soon as they saw that there would be no change in Policy and direction via the Government, they formed a self-funded apolitical group, committed to stand up and facilitate rural people working together to stop the destruction of the Agricultural sector.
- Educate people on where this legislation is coming from and why.
- Motivate/Inspire people to unite in community groups to push back and assert their unalienable right to say “No, we do not consent!”
- Facilitate people taking action to change their future by providing information, templates, tools, stories of success and strategies etc.
AAG is not an organisation or a hierarchy. We work on a de-centralised model which seeks to empower local people to form their own groups and make decisions to push back in those areas which are their local priorities.
We encourage and promote unity between all like-minded interest groups.
We hold Meetings all around NZ and are available to attend gatherings of any size, either in person or via an online meeting platform.
Donations are most welcome.
A separate Admin team administer the Finances.
All financial records are available upon written request.
