Internet = Human Right, But In NZ?

Without the Internet everything (well, almost) I do for a living grinds to a halt. But more importantly a vast amount of what I do outside of work would also be impeded and I don't think I'm alone in this. On the latest Access Granted podcast I mentione the growth in importance of th Internet to all Kiwis as documented on the Wiki New Zealand site:

Clearning my Twitter favourites today I was lead to +Clare Curran's +New Zealand Labour Party post, "Why a spy-free internet should be a human right" which made me think that surely the rest of the hip cool political parties in New Zealand have something similar
So off I tootled, first the +Green Party of Aotearoa New Zealand:

All good, and then the +Internet Party:
I like that they use +Google Drive and have the doc open for comments, have at it.

I didn't hold out much hope for the rest and so only tried +New Zealand National Party:

I haven't bothered with Act, NZ First, Conservatives or The Civilian as, excepting the final one, they are serious jokes. But it is good to see that it's a subject being raised and I am hopeful that New Zealand could follow in the footsteps of the UN, Costa Rica, France and a growing band of countries.
