Right Wing Resistance
The Right Wing Resistance, a right wing group described as neo-nazi, was founded by Kyle Chapman in Christchurch with a group of white nationalists. Its introduction to the New Zealand public was its Christchurch Street Patrols in October 2009, which appeared to target Polynesian youths.
It attempted to recruit further members in Auckland. Press coverage has resulted from distributions of flyers comparing immigration to an invasion, which were called "despicable" by the Race Relations Commissioner.
They have been known to help organise protests and other street activities alongside the National Front.
2011 general election activities
During the 2011 general election campaign members of the group disrupted a candidates election meeting in Christchurch appearing in military-style clothing. They stated that they would protest at polling booths throughout New Zealand on election day; however, this did not happen.
