ANOTHER LAND GRAB..
Another Agenda 21 land grab? Stand over tactics, bullying, night visits with flashlights … disturbing …
‘This video proves that New Zealand’s “Clean, Green” status is nothing more than a HOAX.’
Sign the petition today to save this pristine valley. Thank you.
Driven by Greedy, Corrupt Corporations:
“This is truly an inspiring documentary which highlights how greed and monetary value can destroy, not only the lives of others, but entire ecosystems filled with life. As a society we have taken far too much from our planet, and this documentary proves that New Zealand’s “Clean, Green” image is nothing more than a hoax.
Humans rely on the natural environment for everything we have. Without it, we WILL die. New Zealand’s unique, endemic species are depopulating by the second, with extinction just around the corner. How much must we destroy until we come to this realisation?
Do we want our children, and our children’s children to hear the birdsong, explore native bush, and to continue generations on our planet?
It is ‘developments’ like these which make this future impossible.
It takes 30 seconds to sign the petition.
If you love our beautiful nation, support this cause and make a difference!
Ki te kahore he whakakitenga ka ngaro te iwi.
Without foresight or vision the people will be lost.”
“The UN’s Brundtland Commission on Global Governance described Sustainable Development as “Development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the needs of the future.” “
Have you seen anything sustainable going on since the introduction of these plans in the early ’90s? I see worse pollution, bad financial management, councils up to their necks in debt, homelessness, poverty & a corresponding growth in fascist behaviour by governments, Central & Local, not to mention the suppression of free speech & true democracy. Time to wake up & see what’s really going down.
“We are at present working discreetly, with all our might, to wrest this mysterious force called sovereignty out of the clutches of the local nation states of the world. And all the time we are denying with our lips what we are doing with our hands.” Arnold Toynbee – International Affairs, p.809, November 1931
It’s in every community in the nation. We hear it talked about in county commission meetings and state legislatures. It’s even used in advertising as a positive practice for food processing and auto sales. It’s used as the model for building materials, power sources and transportation policy. It’s sold as the bold visionary plan for the future. The nation is being transformed under the banner of “Sustainable Development.”
We are assured by elected officials that Sustainable Development is simply a tool or a guideline to help direct the carefully-planned growth of our cities and rural areas while protecting our natural resources for future generations. “We must guard against a chaotic, unregulated growth in our cities,” say its earnest proponents as they sell the concept through familiar, non-threatening words and beautiful pictures.
Citizens are assured by their community leaders that all such plans are just local, local, local, created with the participation of the whole community. Sustainable Development policy, they say, is just an environmental land conservation policy, a sensible development policy. Sustainable…what’s wrong with that?
As usual, the answers are hidden in the details. Are we hearing the truth? What are the consequences of the policy that has taken over every level of government? Are there hidden dangers most just can’t see? Or, as its proponents claim, is opposition to Sustainable Development really just a silly, overblown conspiracy theory found in a twenty-year-old meaningless document called Agenda 21?
The UN’s Brundtland Commission on Global Governance described Sustainable Development as “Development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the needs of the future.” It’s just common sense to assure we don’t overuse our resources, say proponents. If everyone will do their part, we can achieve total sustainability.
I am not totally familiar, like the man in the second video, with the issues around this man’s arrest. There is much info being broadcast on alternative media, and not being in the UK it is difficult to make comment on those issues. The point of the post was the denial of freedom of speech. Time will tell on the rest of the situation. If you are in the UK please send any info you may have or feel needs airing on this.
28/5/18 The death throes of democracy people. Folk are outraged as they should be, it’s a canary in the mine warning really. As I’ve been repeating for ages now, it is part of the global plan, global governance. It is not a friendly village that’s envisaged people. As they would have you to believe. Were it a friendly village then you would not have this fascist u turn where all justice is denied & dissenting voices are shut down. The end game in reality is total global lockdown. If you’ve hitherto scoffed at this as fairy material, go and read Mike Adams’ exposé if you haven’t already. (And/or read our Agenda 21/30 pages & line up all the other things that are happening as we speak). Or if you’ve already read this info & didn’t believe it, read it again. Little by little, as frogs in the warming pot, they’ve slipped in the lies under the guise of sustainability. But, is there really anything green going on? Better read that ‘alternative’ info fast because it’s not too long before it will all be gone from the internet as well.

This looks like Agenda 21/30. Land grabs in other places also. Search other articles in ‘categories’. See all of our Agenda pages at the main menu, also see Local Govt Watch pages also at the main menu. Similar happening in the Christchurch rebuild.
Matata landowners have been left in limbo after a proposal to strip existing use rights over safety concerns was accepted by Bay of Plenty Regional Council.
The landmark decision will see 34 houses and sections lose the right to inhabit their property as part of a voluntary retreat. It is believed to be the first time the Resource Management Act has been used in this manner.
Whakatane District Council lobbied Bay of Plenty Regional Council to consider a plan change that will prohibit residential activity in the Awatarariki Fanhead at Matatā after March 2021. The plan change was suggested after $1.2 million was spent investigating how to mitigate safety concerns to residents unsuccessfully.
The plan change will prohibit all residential activity in the affected area.
Impacted residents say they will fight the plan change through legal means.
“We don’t want this to end up in court but when you back people into a corner they fight,” resident spokesman Rick Whalley said.
“That’s where we are now. We’re backed into the corner and we have to fight. They have taken away everything we have. We can’t sell. We can’t get loans. What other option do we have?”
Here are three items introducing the Delphi Technique, used globally in those meetings where you’re consulted, yet you still feel railroaded and haven’t been heard at all. It’s not your imagination. This is a real eye opener. It’s how their agenda (Agenda 21/30) is carried out without your knowing. Hence all the public-excluded meetings these days when they discuss the real agenda with the chosen few. If you’re not on their page you’ll be excluded. And Councils use this technique it when ‘consulting’ you. On the public stuff, making you think you’ve had input. Do read these articles, they’re not too long. The definition of consultation for LG’s own magazine tells you the decision’s already been made, then your views are sought. Excerpt below… ‘5. Engagement vs Consultation’:
First article by Lyn Stuter
The Delphi Technique was originally conceived as a way to obtain the opinion of experts without necessarily bringing them together face to face. In Educating for the New World Order by Bev Eakman, the reader finds reference upon reference for the need to preserve the illusion that there is “Lay, or community, participation in the decisionmaking process), while in fact lay citizens are being squeezed out.”
A specialized use of this technique was developed for teachers, the “Alinsky Method” (ibid., p. 123). The setting or group is, however, immaterial the point is that people in groups tend to share a certain knowledge base and display certain identifiable characteristics (known as group dynamics). This allows for a special application of a basic technique. The “change agent” or “facilitator” goes through the motions of acting as an organizer, getting each person in the target group to elicit expression of their concerns about a program, project, or policy in question. The facilitator listens attentively, forms “task forces,” “urges everyone to make lists,” and so on. While she is doing this, the facilitator learns something about each member of the target group. He/she identifies the “leaders,” the “loud mouths,” as well as those who frequently turn sides during the argument the “weak or noncommittal.”
Suddenly, the amiable facilitator becomes “devil’s advocate.” He/she dons his professional agitator hat. Using the “divide and conquer” technique, he/she manipulates one group opinion against the other. This is accomplished by manipulating those who are out of step to appear “ridiculous, unknowledgeable, inarticulate, or dogmatic.” He/she wants certain members of the group to become angry, thereby forcing tensions to accelerate. The facilitator is well trained in psychological manipulation. S/He is able to predict the reactions of each group member. Individuals in opposition to the policy or program will be shut out of the group.
The method works. It is very effective with parents, teachers, school children, and any community group. The “targets” rarely, if ever, know that they are being manipulated. If they do suspect this is happening, they do not know how to end the process. The desired result is for group polarization, and for the facilitator to become accepted as a member of the group and group process. He/she will then throw the desired idea on the table and ask for opinions during discussion. Very soon his/her associates from the divided group begin to adopt the idea as if it were their own, and pressure the entire group to accept the proposition.
A further article on the Delphi Technique by Abert V Burns
Let’s Stop Being Manipulated
More and more, we are seeing citizens being invited to “participate” in various forms of meetings, councils, or boards to “help determine” public policy in one field or another. They are supposedly being included to get ”input” from the public to help officials make final decisions on taxes, education, community growth or whatever the particular subject matter might be.
Sounds great, doesn’t it? Unfortunately, surface appearances are often deceiving.
You, Mr. or Mrs. Citizen, decide to take part in one of these meetings.
Generally, you will find that there is already someone designated to lead or “facilitate” the meeting. Supposedly, the job of the facilitator is to be a neutral, non-directing helper to see that the meeting flows smoothly.
Actually, he or she is there for exactly the opposite reason: to see that the conclusions reached during the meeting are in accord with a plan already decided upon by those who called the meeting.
The process used to “facilitate” the meeting is called the Delphi Technique. This Delphi Technique was developed by the RAND Corporation for the U.S. Department of Defense back in the 1950s. It was originally intended for use as a psychological weapon during the cold war.
However, it was soon recognized that the steps of Delphi could be very valuable in manipulating ANY meeting toward a predetermined end.
How does the process take place? The techniques are well developed and well defined.
First, the person who will be leading the meeting, the facilitator or Change Agent must be a likable person with whom those participating in the meeting can agree or sympathize.
It is, therefore, the job of the facilitator to find a way to cause a split in the audience, to establish one or a few of the people as “bad guys” while the facilitator is perceived as the “good guy.”
Facilitators are trained to recognize potential opponents and how to make such people appear aggressive, foolish, extremist, etc. Once this is done, the facilitator establishes himself or herself as the “friend” of the rest of the audience.
The stage is now set for the rest of the agenda to take place.
At this point, the audience is generally broken up into “discussion—or ‘breakout’—groups” of seven or eight people each. Each of these groups is to be led by a subordinate facilitator.
Within each group, discussion takes place of issues, already decided upon by the leadership of the meeting. Here, too, the facilitator manipulates the discussion in the desired direction, isolating and demeaning opposing viewpoints.
And finally, a video showing how to derail the Delphi Technique

If you are reading this, you must want to know more about Agenda 21. Well, good news-you have arrived at the right place!
This is the site of possibly the only Agenda 21 Course on the Internet. When you are done with the ten topical lessons and the accompanying materials, you will understand what Agenda 21 is and its full impact on you, your family, and your country. Further, you will have enough knowledge to go out into your community and begin to change the course of America (or your country) – for the better! Do not hesitate. Dive right into Lesson 1-Introduction to Agenda 21.

As we know the Nats created a great hole in the State owned housing stock by selling off & land banking properties situated on prime real estate. Now Labour’s set to fix it with ‘affordable’ tiny housing. This is the global trend of course under the UN’s plan for sustainable development. (Sustainably developing developers’ bank accounts, nothing much else is being sustained … note worst pollution of waterways ever, councils are lip service only). With large swathes of the South Island just sold (rather gifted) off shore, governments/corporations have been full on privatising all our state assets with Public Private Partnerships that you all should examine a little more closely. More smoke and mirrors. For a full exposé you need to read Dr Naomi Jacobs’ ebook, a link there to the pdf is on the Agenda 21/30 in NZ page.
Further food for thought is the current new law in Australia that stops you declining vaccination for you or your child (or face 10 years imprisonment) and the stopping of private citizens and asking for papers/ID in the US. This is the beginnings of a totalitarian Police State agenda. That is the fairly plain writing I am seeing on the wall.
Here are the NZ tiny houses from stuff.co.nz … where are the windows?!
Housing crisis solution described as ‘design and planning monstrosity’
A building expert has slammed the Government’s latest emergency housing solution as a “design and planning monstrosity”.
Engineering consultant Jonathan Smith said the design of the small West Auckland units was unacceptable.
“The units are an eyesore and a design fail.”
The one-bedroom properties have already been criticised for looking like “prison cells”.
Single people would live in the prefabricated dwellings, for an average of three months, under the Government’s transitional housing programme.
Smith said the units were a “design and planning monstrosity”.
Agenda 21/30’s stack and pack / tiny housing is world wide
The Chinese Version of Agenda 21 and Why The U.S. Should Care
As most aware people already know, England often provides us with a forward-looking view of where our police state surveillance grid will be in three or four years.
The US has a canary in the mine from which to predict its future and it has to do with how China are implementing Agenda 21. China has long led the world in repressive and inhuman enforcement of its one child policies, mandatory sterilization and forced abortions…. read more
And this is not just China. A search online will see the tiny house trend everywhere. We’ve posted here recently on the trend and the steering away from large sections, formerly a Kiwi tradition.

“Its [Alpha Burn Stn’s] sole shareholder was American billionaire Peter Thiel, the Libertarian futurist who had become a New Zealand citizen, unbeknownst to almost everyone, after spending 12 days in the country, which allowed him to buy the land without approval from the Overseas Investment Office.”
This is indicative of Agenda 2030. See our articles on privatisation (use the search box), public private partnerships and Agenda 21/30. Also, see our Local Govt Watch pages at the main menu particularly Mangawhai and Horowhenua. See where the privatising (aka selling off) of the family silver began. NZ is fast disappearing down the gurgler I’m afraid. Following is a mainstream article.
“We’re talking about 10 per cent of the country. And even if it weren’t [that much land], it’s been done behind closed doors, and people should be concerned about that.”
We’ve paid $65m to get rid of some of our most treasured landscapes, through an obscure process critics have described as a vast wave of privatisation. Wealthy foreigners are snapping up valuable land once owned by the public, who in some cases paid to dispose of it. As gated estates and manicured golf courses spread through our wild places, Charlie Mitchell investigates:
Who owns the high country?
ALPHA BURN STATION
“Thousands of people each year make the pilgrimage along this narrow and dusty path, which twists through a bushy terrace overlooking a lake in the heart of New Zealand’s high country.
It is a landscape millions of years in the making, composed by the rise and fall of ancient glaciers, a place where colours converge; the lake’s deep shade of cerulean, the muted and sun-tinged tussocks of gentle hills, the colossal white peak of Mt Aspiring…
The land was ultimately privatised, without protection. About 18 months later, it was sold to a group of wealthy developers, among them Sky TV founder Craig Heatley, one of the country’s wealthiest men. They sought to subdivide the land for six houses, which did not come to fruition, in part due to vigorous opposition from local advocacy groups…
…the new buyer was particularly objectionable.
It was a company called Second Star Ltd, seemingly an homage to Peter Pan: the mythical paradise of Neverland is the “second star to the right” in the Disney adaptation.
Its sole shareholder was American billionaire Peter Thiel, the Libertarian futurist who had become a New Zealand citizen, unbeknownst to almost everyone, after spending 12 days in the country, which allowed him to buy the land without approval from the Overseas Investment Office.”

FURTHER UPDATE FROM THE STANDARD:
High Country selloff scandal laid bare
A feature in yesterday’s Domion Post Weekend lays bare the extent of the scandalous selloff of huge tracts of our high country.
Charlie Mitchell’s report details how the tenure review of the high country has been conducted since it began in 1992 when many leasehold farms became uneconomic and a process was established to review the leaseholds by privatising some of the land and bringing parts into the conservation estate. The process has been followed by both National and Labour governments.
Mitchell’s article reveals:
- The review covers over 2 million hectares of land, some 10 percent of the whole country, an area larger than the state of Israel
- Tenure reviews since 1998 show that the taxpayer has paid nearly $65 million to privatise land it owned which in some cases has been sold for huge capital gains
- The public has surrendered all rights to 430,000ha of the high country’s most productive land, parts of which have become luxury retreats, gated developments, tourism ventures, intensively farmed land or billionaire’s playgrounds
- Around 14 percent of the privatised land has some form of covenant.
- Much of the process has been secretive and not open to public scrutiny
- Much of land was originally bought from Maori through a series of “meagre” payments for which
- Maori were promised reserves and access to resources – promises that were broken by the Crown
Around 14 percent of the privatised land has some form of covenant
- Key sales to foreign buyers required no Overseas Investment Office review
- Alpha Burn Station a few minutes from Wanaka and with 5.5km of Lake Wanaka shoreline, saw 190ha of prime property privatised without public protection for a net $50,000. It was resold almost immediately to rich lister Craig Heatley for $10.6 million, who after failing to win a subdivision battle, resold it to US billionaire, libertarian, and Trump adviser, Peter Theil, for $13.5 million. The capital gain computes at 37,000 percent, none of which is taxable
- The taxpayer paid $5000 to privatise Glendhu Station. Now in three parts, one part has been sold with a partly finished golf course on it, for $16.7 million; another part is valued at $8.5 million and a third at $3.4 million.
- One family owned Alpha Burn and Glendhu Stations, collectively paying $45,000 for 6000ha of Wanaka lakefront that today is valued at $45million.
- An analysis by an author on the subject, Ann Bower, published in 2015 found the median capital gain of sales after tenure reviews was 69,200 percent
- Across all tenure reviews since 1998, land valued at $320 million was bought by farmers for $143m, while land valued at $78m was purchased by the Crown for $208m
- A furore over the sale of Richmond Station on the shore of Lake Tekapo caused the Clark Labour government to suspend the reviews, but the Key National government restarted the process in 2009, with then Conservation Minister Kate Wilkinson saying the Crown didn’t need more conservation land
- As recently as May, the leaseholders of Airies Station in Burkes Pass purchased the whole station freehold for $2.8 million, and the Crown paid out the same amount to cancel the payment. A quarter of the land was covenanted but no public access was granted.
