Australian euthanasia campaigner Philip Nitschke plans to transfer his operations & hold workshops at New Zealand’s Voluntary Euthanasia Society in Auckland.
Later, he hopes to hold “peaceful pill” workshops in New Zealand teaching participants how to produce a lethal drug.
The move to New Zealand will come before some of his activities are outlawed in Australia; he will relocate the origin of his Exit International’s website at the offices of Auckland’s right-to-die group.
Nitschke is making the move before 6Jan06 enactment of an Australian law, which bans the promotion of euthanasia by telephone or internet.
