OIA request reveals 89 Dead Kiwi in 1080 treated Tongariro Forest – and not one was tested by DOC for 1080 poisoning – Press Release from Graf Brothers

Following the recent shocking news about 1080 drops into the streams that flow into Lake Taupo, this info from an OIA request is very interesting.  Now would you not, with that many precious and rare native birds, be testing as to HOW they died? You surely would not just presume, pests? And would you not actually TEST for poison, any poison?

Not long ago we posted an article on DOC’s failure to show one endangered species in recovery, in spite of $3.5 BILLION being spent! That’s a large sum of money to just shrug your shoulders at. There needs to be some accountability. People are asking questions and rightly so.

These Kiwis were only the tagged ones too, so the numbers may well be just the tip of the iceberg!

“Surprisingly, given so much poison has been dropped across the forest, not a single kiwi from the 89 deaths has been tested for 1080 poison residues.”

89 Dead Kiwi – 1080 Clearly Not Working

This is an offical press release from the Graf Bothers 

“It has been revealed through an OIA request that tagged kiwi have been dying in large numbers in one of our most heavily 1080 treated forests.

Aerial 1080 drops first began in the Tongariro Forest in 1976 and have been followed with subsequent drops in parts of the forest in 1988, 1989, 1991, and over much of the forest in 1995, 1996, 1997, 2001, and 2006. Another drop was carried out last week covering around 15,000 hectares.

It would be reasonable to assume, after so much 1080 poison has been spread across the forest, there could be no sign of a ferret or stoat for miles – surely?

Not so. In the last 5 years, revealed through the DoC OIA request, 89 tagged kiwi, of all ages, have died in the Tongariro forest. Keeping in mind that the tagged kiwi only represent a fraction of the wild population, the actual numbers, from a population perspective, may be enormous.

More concerning is what’s killing the birds. The assumed cause of death, in most cases … is predation by ferret. We are told by DoC kiwi can defend themselves from mustelid attacks, once they reach 1.5kg in weight. Yet, many of these birds are adults.

When discussing the use of 1080, the DoC use sentences like “overwhelmingly successful”, “very effective”, “rapid knockdown” to justify their poisoning campaigns.
“It’s the best tool we have for managing pests, and keeping predators at bay.” At least that’s what we’re lead to believe by The Department of Conservation, the PCE, and Forest and Bird.

The Real Reason Your Rural Banks are Closing Kiwis – It’s Not Lack of Funds

Recent reports tell us that in spite of $1 billion Profit, Westpac is still looking to close 19

hands-1319624_1280.jpgrural Branches. So it isn’t because they’re not making money. Same scenario with Housing NZ. Those homes are being hocked off by the thousands currently, not because they are an encumbrance, in fact the Housing Corporation is/was running at a profit. Cast your eye back to the late ’80s and the new Neoliberal rip-off economy that promised us they were working smarter amidst a whole palaver about restructuring aka structural adjustment that seemed to mysteriously only affect the workers and equally as mysteriously fatten the purses of the already wealthy. The gap is getting wider, watch.

These closures began back in the aforementioned late ’80s when banks, hospitals, pharmacies, postal, transport and medical services and so on, collapsed slowly, one by one, like a house of cards. Folks at the time put up a huge fight to retain these services and were successful for a time, however, they eventually closed. The seemingly inevitable. And back then, like now, they were simply decisions from the top echelon in Wellington – economic priorities, not inevitabilities at all. And slowly, as was the intended effect, folks drifted to the cities in order to support themselves and their families. Kiwis are resourceful and not lazy like the current regime would have you believe. We had full employment before the new banking/corporate government took control.

Slowly, as services were closed, the result of economic decisions in Wellington, people moved to the cities in order to support their families

If you would like to know the agenda behind those decisions you need to look at the UN Long Term Plan, called specifically Agenda 21 and Agenda 2030. It is very long hence few will have read it. However there are many commentaries/exposes/critiques of it online fortunately, by those who have read it cover to cover, notable people like ex Aussie politician, Anne Bressington. Watch her video at the link. This is the forward thinking plan that superficially looks great and touts sustainability and global cooperation. Be assured it is everything but. Look now at our District Councils, our Local Governing bodies and see how they flout the term sustainability (in practice that is). Their websites however have all the right spin. People are now waking up to the fact and the reality that our nation is being in fact, severely polluted to the extent we can only swim safely in 40% of our rivers. 

And so in line with this change of regime that has been creeping on us since the late ’80s

IMG_4150.JPG
Mangaweka in the central North Island, a once thriving town, drastically affected historically by the closure of services

and Rogernomics, the closure of facilities in rural areas is designed to drive us to the cities. Friends tell me their rates in the rural towns are far dearer than city rates … with less amenities. If you take the time to research Agenda 21/30 you will see the long term plan – in short – is for us to live in high rise city apartments and riding bicycles for transport. That is the general shift that is in motion.

For a local expose of the plan visit our Agenda 21/30 in NZ pages … Dr Naomi Jacobs has written an ebook about it (downloadable from that page), triggered by the rising rates scenario (an increasingly familiar theme) in Kaipara in the North. No this is not conspiracy theory, it is a documented UN Agenda fact. You owe it to yourself to read it. It concerns you & your descendants.

Families with children now 53% of NZ’s staggering 41,000 homeless

This is very disturbing news. For starters 41,000 homeless is shocking beyond belief, in a land that once cared for its own. Top dollar for the real estate speculators is all that seems to matter now in Paradise as Key curries the favour of his rich friends and continues to profit from our growing indebtedness. All the while mouthing the hollow professions about building more homes … and selling off the existing housing stock from a corporation that was still making a profit. Please Kiwis, don’t vote the Nats in again. True, Labour is the lesser of two evils but Nats are more blatantly pro greed surely?

“More than half of New Zealand’s 41,000 homeless people are now families with children, according to new University of Otago research.

The new analysis shows that 21,797 children and their parents were in “severe housing deprivation” on Census day in 2013, up dramatically from 15,085 in the previous 2006 Census.

Surprisingly, single adults in severe housing deprivation declined from 9759 to 7763, and adults in couples and living with their adult children or parents increased from 3424 to 4898.

As the housing market gets tighter, single people have more flexibility and potentially more options open to them, whereas families with children don’t.

Dr Kate Amore

Overall numbers in severe housing deprivation rose from 28,917 in 2001 and 33,946 in 2006 (both 0.8 per cent of all New Zealanders) to 41,207 (1 per cent) in 2013.

Zika ‘virus’ (purchasable from the Rockefeller Fndn) now believed to be a cover story for the new autism delivered via the Tdap pertussis vaccine

Time for a reblog of this one … the Zika virus was patented! Go figure!

Rangitikei Enviromental Health Watch

This is shocking information. Please read and research the facts for yourself. (Be aware that the source site has been hacked – a sure indication of the truth contained therein – so if the info has gone, or the site inaccessible, keep returning to read it). And before you dismiss this as nonsense see where you can purchase the Zika virus! – courtesy of the Rockefeller Foundation. (You need to be asking yourself, why would anybody purchase a virus?) The whole thing is very suspect isn’t it?

New York City sprays the Dominicans and Puerto Ricans Only for “Zika prevention”

Blatant biological warfare here!

WAR AGAINST ALL PUERTO RICANS

Book - 12-10

At 3:20 a.m. on August 17, a public address system passed repeatedly under my apartment. I woke up, looked out my window and saw a police car with a mounted bullhorn. A large truck followed behind. They moved together slowly – about 10 miles an hour – as the truck sprayed a 30-foot cloud into the air, which nearly reached my window.

The recorded message from the police car was garbled. I couldn’t understand any of it, even after they passed under my window six times, spraying both sides of the street until 4 a.m.

It looked something like this:

Zika Spraying

The indecipherable “police message” was clearly a half-hearted compliance with a legal notice requirement. I was curious what the City of New York was doing to my neighborhood at 4 a.m., with garbled police messages.

So I scoured the internet until I found this:

Carcinogen Glyphosate Found in 85% of Tampons, Cotton, Gauze

Some of you will know the PTB have backtracked on the  carcinogenicity of  glyphosate however there is still a ton of evidence by INDEPENDENT not in-house research to tell us it is a carcinogen. Use it at your own risk.

The vast majority ‒ 85 percent ‒ of tampons, cotton and sanitary products tested in a new Argentinian study contained glyphosate, the key ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide, ruled a likely carcinogen by the World Health Organization.

Meanwhile, 62 percent of the samples tested positive for AMPA, glyphosate’s metabolite, according to the study, which was conducted by researchers at the Socio-Environmental Interaction Space (EMISA) of the University of La Plata in Argentina.

All of the raw and sterile cotton gauze analyzed in the study showed evidence of glyphosate, said Dr. Damian Marino, the study’s head researcher….

Why You Shouldn’t Swim in the Manawatu, or any NZ River … the Pollution of our Waterways for Corporate Profit

With the current concerns about the contamination of our waterways, time for a reblog of this article.

Rangitikei Enviromental Health Watch

The Manawatu has earned us the dubious honour of being the most polluted river in the Southern Hemisphere. Anybody who remembers the quality of our waterways from the 1950s through to the 80s or thereabouts, will remember long summers spent swimming unhampered by any need to check the water quality before taking a dip. Didn’t matter if you swallowed a mouthful or two, it was clean and healthy.

person-918919_1280.jpg There once was never a need to check the cleanliness of our waterways before swimming

One warning I read recently stated it was not safe to swim following floods, that being due to the run off from surrounding farms … pesticides, fertilizers, animal faeces and urine, the unmentionable dirty word, ‘glyphosate’ and whatever other herbicide the farmer uses that is deemed perfectly harmless. Farmers have told me in effect that “I can rest easy because roundup’s very mild”. They’re generally not inclined to want…
