Though many have suffered  from the devastating earthquakes of 2010 and 2011, it was certain government policies that actually exacerbated, if not created  more suffering.  We are asking the policy-makers to do the right thing for the good of the affected Canterburians and for New Zealand.

About Quake Outcasts


We are a residents' group formed to advocate and protect the rights of red zoned home owners in the aftermath of the Canterbury earthquakes.

We are not a political party, nor do we support any political party or any particular political candidate. We are not affiliated with any political organisation or movement. We welcome any help any politician can offer out of their desire to serve. 

We are red zoned homeowners who:

1. are being coerced to accept government offers that are not fair market values,

2. are being held hostage by government's zoning power and unable to live life normally,

3. are feeling frustrated and helpless by the arrogance and unresponsiveness of bureaucrats,

4. are tired of being manipulated into thinking our land is worthless,

5. are otherwise had our homes condemned by red zoning but not even made a buyout offer or even an indication of compensation.



Our Mission


Our Mission is to advocate and protect red zoned home owners' rights in relation to the Canterbury earthquakes. 

We believe government policies and actions should work for the affected people, help people recover, and set a good precedent for future generations. 

We advocate :
1. The right for any home owner to live where s/he desires without government interference. (In other words, leave those who are uninterested alone.)
2. Fair and just compensation to all home owners should government insists on relocating people.

Do to others

as you would have them do to you. Before judging others, think about what if it was you who is suffering. Do you feel like others do? 

What would you say to your children?

Are you a decent human being?

Many staunch critics of us came to realise their own falacies after learning the truth.  Will you be one of them?


Please contact us if you are a fellow red zoned home owner who is at a crossroad. Your call will be treated with confidentiality. Or if you prefer, email us:
