The Values Party (1 o 2)

The Values Party

Politics is usually considered to involve conflict over ‘interests’ – frequently linked to people’s economic position. However, the Values Party, founded in 1972, shortly before the November election, sought to shift voters’ attention towards ‘values’, offering an alternative, post-materialist and environmentalist approach. This was highlighted when two Values Party members attempted to plant a tree on empty land on an inner-city Wellington street.
