A special year is 2017

This is a special year with a very special day! I write this as we remember 100 years of sacrifice by our Forces, The Anzacs, so we could live in freedom.

On October 12, it is 100 years since the Battle of Passchendaele. New Zealand had
18,000 casualties and suffered 5000 dead in World War 1.

If the Japs or Nazis had conquered us, in WW2, they would have taken our homes if we did not obey their demands.

Today, Tauranga City Council can take and sell your home if you do not pay their rate demands, while they spend our money and most think we have no say.

Where are the sons and daughters of the Anzacs? Have we honoured the Anzac sacrifice?
Have courage, good news is on the way, regarding democracy, in this very special year.  

K Evans, Tauranga City.
