The current National Front logo is the same as the British National Front's logo from the early 1970s.
The New Zealand National Front is a small far-right organisation in New Zealand.
The New Zealand National Front was founded by Brian Thompson of Ashburton (who had earlier been the New Zealand secretary for the League of Empire Loyalists) in 1968, although its operation was erratic. In 1989, an organisation called the Conservative Front, led by Anton Foljambe, took over the name. Foljambe resigned as leader in 1997, establishing a new organisation called the National Democrats. Later, Kyle Chapman became leader and Foljambe returned. Since then, the NF has achieved considerably greater public recognition.
The National Front describes itself as "the leading organisation in New Zealand concerned with the preservation and advancement of unique New Zealand European culture." and considers itself to be "patriotic and nationalistic". The party's policy platform is primarily based around militarist and anti-immigrant themes, and often incorporates elements of survivalism.
The current leader of the New Zealand National Front is Kyle Chapman who is alleged to have a record of violence, including the arson of a marae. Chapman, however, says that allegations against him are greatly exaggerated, and that he renounces the use of violence. In 2004, Kyle Chapman unsuccessfully contested the mayoralty of Christchurch, placing fifth with 1.9 percent of the public vote.
The secretary of the NZNF is Kerry Bolton. Bolton is known for his leadership in the occult, including satanic groups such as the Temple of Set, the Black Order , and the Order of the Left Hand Path . He is also active as a writer, as the owner of the Renaissance Press, and as publisher of The Nexus and other periodicals.
In 2004, the NZNF began the process of registering as an official political party, (see political parties in New Zealand for more information). To register, a party must have 500 paid members who are eligible to vote. As yet, it is unclear whether it will gain registration. Unregistered parties may still nominate candidates for individual parliamentary seats. 
On the 16th of May 2005, the National Front hosted a gig by openly neo-nazi Melbourne band Death's Head. Although the gig was expected to attract around 300 people, heavy publicity thinned the numbers, especially amongst those National Front members who would be violating their bail bonds by attending.
On the 18th of May 2005, the National Front was allocated $10,000 by the NZ electoral commission.
Policies of the National Front include:
Support & activities
The National Front has received some public support over 2004, as exhibited by the nearly 2% vote for the NZNF's leader, Kyle Chapman, in a mayoral election. Public support for the National Front's nationalist ideals mostly originates from the white working class community, as well as several conservative and religious groups. Currently, the party claims to have over 500 members, some of whom plan to run in regional elections.
The NZNF is an affiliate of the White Pride Coalition Australia , Patriotic Youth League, and the Australia First Party (AFP). Beginning in late 2004, the NZNF and Kyle Chapman, working with Jim Saleam of the AFP, have helped to organize an Australian National Front (ANF) party. With NZNF administrative and propaganda support, the ANF has established branches in Sydney, Perth and Melbourne in 2005. 
In 2004 the NZNF conducted a protest against Asian influence and immigration in Christchurch city, and other public meeting & pickets nationwide. At a planned "Anti-ZOG" (Zionist Occupied Government) event in the nation's capital on August 14, 2004 the Front was able to get ten picketers to protest an anti-racism meeting. 
Recent demonstrations by the National Front include:
- Wellington and Auckland held demonstrations concerning the Waitangi Treaty, demanding equal rights for all New Zealanders. They publicised the Littlewood Treaty, the English Language version of Treaty of Waitangi, which clearly states that both peoples would be equal. Both demonstrations were free from serious incidents.
- Protests against Free Trade Agreement with China
- Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch branches held protests against the free trade deal with China, reminding fellow NZers of the factories being closed down and moved there.
- Protest Against Parliamentarians for Global Action World Law Conference
- Ten activists attended the protest on the steps of parliament, complete with several NZ flags and a large sign reading “Stop PGA Treason!”, and placards saying “PGA MPs? whose interests do they serve?”, and “Resist PGA MPs Treason”.
On October 23, 2004 the National Front led a protest in Wellington in support of retaining the current New Zealand Flag, which was attended by an estimated 45 persons. . The march was opposed by the Anti-Nationalist group, MultiCultural Aotearoa, who led an 300-person anti-racism march near Parliament Buildings in Wellington. During the separate protests, a "radical, anarchist, punk-rocker type group" numbering about 200 persons, described by police as a "rent-a-protest crowd", surrounded and attacked the National Front and one National Front member was hurt.  
During the scuffles, one National Front member were quoted as stating that "The white revolution starts here and now."
Another was heard to say, "I'm a nazi, and I'm fucking proud of it too." 
According to the "New Zealand Herald", the following day Kyle Chapman complained of "insufficient police protection" against the anti-racist protestors . Kyle Chapman also mentioned the lack of arrests, claiming the police ignored the violence created by the radical left-wing aggressors, some of whom carried weapons.
Criticism & opposition
The National Front is accused by some of being a fascist or neo-Nazi group, and has previously had problems with police.
In mid 2004, a number of attacks on immigrants and attacks on Jewish property and grave stones were blamed on skinheads allegedly associated with the Front. The NZNF has denied all claims of involvement relating to the attacks on Jewish gravestones and property. One arrest was made but charges were later dropped due to a lack of evidence. After police indicated that they had no further evidence and no leads, British historian of World War Two David Irving offered a US$1,000 reward for information leading to an arrest. He later increased the reward to $5,000 and it totaled $10,000 with contributions from others. Irving, judged to be a Holocaust denier, implied that the cemetery owners were responsible for the desecration in order to collect the insurance.  At the behest of the small Jewish community, the government of New Zealand refused entry to Irving later that year.
The NZNF website and an affiliated web forum, NZpolitics, have been hacked repeatedly. Perhaps the first attack was made in late 2004 by a hacker claiming affiliation with the BlackMask. The hackers justify their actions by claiming that the National Front is a fascist, racist organisation.
