    Impeachment of course.

    And I want to include "reeferendum" because I like it so much.

    Climate Strike

    because we are not living under rocks

    and

    protofascism

    because there is so much around in the decline of grand empires.

    Then there's good old "climate change" which is going to be the term of the decade, if not the century.

    And "Reeferendum" gets a vote from me too please. I like how implies an end to reefer madness (a stretch, but I live in hope)

    Same as last year. Rangitahi. Because it is the youth who have to deal with the shit we have created and they are stepping up.

    Bit sad about this but...

    "Meme war" for the online face of conflicts that have touched NZ and places around the world.

    Or "weaponised media" for similar reasons.

  • KathrynB,

    As-Salaam-Alaikum

    As much as I dislike labelling any single event as 'changing NZ for ever,' I think the terrorist attack on March 15 did. One of the many longterm effects is that non-Muslim New Zealanders now know so much more about Islam and many have befriended members of the Muslim community in their neighbourhood. The greeting 'As-Salaam-Alaikum' is now part of our lexicon.

    'Greta' – verb: to pour opprobrium upon the powerful

    'Granular' whatever the f*** it means – I’m hearing it all the time.
