Sign the TPPA-11 Petition – Aotearoa is STILL not for sale

We request the House of Representatives to urge the Government to reject the resurrected Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement

We request the House of Representatives to urge the Government to reject the revised Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement, now known as the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement on Trans-Pacific Partnership, and that the House revise the Standing Orders of the Parliament to ensure the process for negotiating and signing trade and investment agreements is more democratic, independently informed, and regularly feeds information back to the Parliament and the people.

This is a trade deal NZ should NOT SIGN – The TPPA is a corporate passport to exploit the natural wealth of a nation by ‘legally’ robbing its citizens and the environment of that natural wealth

I want to point out the reason why so many politicians promise this and that before they get elected but once in power reneg on that promise – its because of the T&C of various trade deals done through membership of various organisations often in secret – to give an example …”…..Trade Minister David Parker says NZ First’s policy of taxing bottled water exports would breach various international agreements because it is discriminatory. But there is a much bigger risk that foreign investors could threaten to bring an ISDS dispute if moves to resolve water claims affect their commercial interests….”

here is another example

“…….The new government is rushing through changes to the Overseas Investment Act to restrict foreign purchases of residential housing. They admit that the law would breach the TPPA if it was passed after the agreement came into force….”

Its vital to grasp this because this is the key to understanding how policies are now made via these agreements and why voting really doesn’t make much difference once deals are done and always these deals are not done in public view but behind closed doors in secret as this trade deal reveals it – the secrecy behind it is tantamount to a betrayal of the people because it will allow corporations to steal the wealth of the people of the nation for private profit,

example … “…….The separation of cutting rights from the land was a device used by the Labour government in 1988 to allow corporatisation of the forests and separation of the land from the trees so the forests could be privatised…..”  …. this was the Roger Douglas’ cabinet.

Another example …  “…Labour and NZ First want to restore the right of NZ, and Maori, ownership of the forests. They have to change the foreign investment law before the TPPA comes into force because they can’t do so afterwards…..”…

so when you protest you are protesting against a much bigger force than you realize – politicians’ hands are tied once deals are signed.

This is about the TTPA and Te Tiriti o Waitangi..

Written By Jane Kelsey

The state of play with TPPA

Ø The original Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement was signed by the 12 negotiating parties in Auckland on 4 February 2016, in the face of a massive protest led by tangata whenua.

Ø Japan and NZ completed their domestic processes to ratify (adopt) the original agreement during 2016.

Ø In January 2017 US President Trump withdrew the US’s participation from the TPPA.

Ø The 11 remaining countries met 7 times in 2017 to rescue the TPPA minus the US.

Each country tabled a list of provisions in the TPPA that it wanted removed or suspended.

Apparently, NZ under the National government did table a list of requests, but that remains secret.

The new Labour-NZ First government, supported by Greens, only had input into these negotiations at the very end.

Labour asked other TPPA countries to suspend the right of foreign investors to sue the NZ government in offshore tribunals over new laws and policies (investor-state dispute settlement/ISDS), but it failed.

Labour did not seek to make other changes or even suspend other provisions of concern to Maori.

Ø In December 2017 in Vietnam, the TPPA-11 agreed to suspend 20 items from the original text, pending the US’s re-entry; 4 matters remained to be finalized.

Ø In January 2018 in Tokyo the TPPA 11 announced a new deal, one year to the day from Trump’s withdrawal.

Ø Canada insisted that it needed changes to protect its culture sector. Reports say it also achieved changes on automobiles, although that was not on the list. These were done through side letters that remain secret.

Ø The TPPA-11 will contain the entire old agreement. 22 of the 1000+ original provisions have been suspended, pending US re-entry, but they have not been removed.

Ø The TPPA has been rebranded the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement on Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP or TPPA-11) even though the substance is the same as the old TPPA.

Ø They intend to sign the TPPA-11 agreement in Chile on 8 March 2018.

Ø The text of what they agreed remains secret. Japanese officials say the text will not be released until after it has been signed. The National Opposition, which ran the secretive negotiations, wants the text released.

Ø In January 2018 President Trump said he would consider re-entering the TPPA, but the terms would have to be more favourable to the US than the original agreement.

Ø The process for US re-entry will require consensus. Labour says some suspended items may never be re-activated. But the US domestic political processes mean any US re-entry will inevitably require more benefits to the US, not less.

Ø The TPPA-11 will reportedly come into force after 6 of the 11 parties have ratified it by completing their domestic processes. Again, the actual text of this provision has not been released.

The new government and the TPPA

Ø Labour, New Zealand First and the Greens all wrote dissents to the majority select committee report on the TPPA and said they would not support its ratification.

Ø Labour said the economic modelling was flawed and there must be a robust cost-benefit analysis that includes impacts on jobs and on distribution, as well as a health impact assessment. Neither report has been done for the TPPA-11.

Ø Labour now claims the new TPPA-11 meets Labour’s 5 pre-conditions for change, but it does not: it provides market access for exporters (but it has no new economic analysis of net costs and benefits); it protects the Pharmac model for buying medicines (but the provisions are suspended not removed); the Treaty of Waitangi, the sovereign right to regulate and restrictions on foreign ownership of property are all protected (which they are not, see below).

Ø Winston Peters says the TPPA-11 is a very different deal from the one NZ First opposed and they will now support it. That is not true. The ISDS provisions and core protections for foreign investors that NZ First so staunchly opposed remain the same and have not even been suspended.

Ø New Zealand’s ratification of the TPPA-11 requires another round of submissions to the parliamentary select committee on which National has 4 of the 8 members, including the chair and deputy chair.

Ø If legislation is needed to implement the agreement, National has said it will vote with Labour and NZ First. The Greens remain opposed.

Ø So the parliamentary process is a foregone conclusion.

MAORI A

The Treaty of Waitangi Exception

The Treaty of Waitangi exception in the TPPA is a copy of one that was drafted in 2000 for the Singapore free trade agreement (FTA).

The same exception has been rolled over in agreements since then, without any consultation with Māori, even though today’s agreements impose much greater restrictions on what governments can do.

Prime Minister Ardern says NZ ‘has an exemption that says it is always able to legislate and act to protect its obligations under the Treaty of Waitangi and that can’t be challenged by other nations’. That is not true.

Ø The Waitangi Tribunal in the TPPA claim (Wai 2522) said the Treaty exception ‘may not encompass the full extent of the Treaty relationship’ because it only covers Crown actions that give preferences to Māori, not laws or policies that apply generally but are at least partly for Treaty compliance (water, mining, fisheries).

Ø The PM said the Tribunal found the ‘exemption provides protections for the Treaty’. That is also not true. The Tribunal found no breach of Treaty principles because the exception was ‘likely’ to offer a ‘reasonable degree’ of protection for Māori. But it did not accept the Crown’s claim that ‘nothing in the TPPA will prevent the Crown from meeting its Treaty obligations to Māori’.

Ø The Tribunal was not convinced that the exception protects Crown actions from a dispute by a foreign investor, for example on water or mining.

Ø The Wai 2522 claimants made proposals for more effective protection. These have been ignored. There has been no consultation on any stronger protection.

Ø The wording of the exception hasn’t changed in other negotiations since the TPPA. Officials say that they can’t change the wording because they tell other countries they must have this wording because it’s in all NZ’s agreements. New wording would open the text for negotiation.

Ø But New Zealand got additional new wording on UPOV 1991 at the last minute in the TPPA (see below), so it’s not true the Crown can’t demand and win different wording.

Ø Labour seems to be accepting the Crown’s advice and accepting an ‘imperfect’ Treaty protection as a trade-off for other commercial benefits it sees in these deals.

The Waitangi Tribunal claim is ongoing

Ø The Waitangi Tribunal granted urgency to the TPPA (Wai-2522) claim, but limited its scope to whether the wording in the Treaty exception provided effective protection for Māori interests. It didn’t address other parts of the claim (eg water, mining, health).

Ø The Tribunal’s time for preparing its report was cut back because the National government pushed through the legislation to implement the TPPA; once the Bill was introduced the Tribunal had no jurisdiction.

Ø The Tribunal found there was a reasonable level of active protection in the Treaty exception, but suggested there should be consultation on better protection, and it kept oversight of the UPOV 1991 issue (below).

Ø The Crown wants the Tribunal process terminated. The claimants point to a lack of good faith consultation over TPPA-11 negotiations since the Tribunal’s report and issues not addressed in the urgent hearing remain.

Ø On 30 January 2018 the Tribunal asked the parties (basically the Crown) to say by mid-February (a) when the text of the new agreement would be available, (b) what its effect would be on the Crown’s engagement with Maori on the Plant Varieties regime and adopting UPOV 1991, (c) what issues in the TPPA claim remain live, and (d) ‘when would be the appropriate time for the Tribunal to commence inquiry into the remaining substantive claims that have been filed with respect of the TPPA?

WAI 262 and the UPOV 1991 convention

Ø The TPPA required NZ to adopt the UPOV 1991 Convention that creates rights to claim intellectual property rights on plant varieties, which Wai 262 report and the Cabinet have recognized is inconsistent with te Tiriti.

Ø Legal arguments from the Wai-2522 claimants showed the Treaty exception would not protect a Crown decision not to adopt UPOV 1991, because the decision only applies to a ‘preference’ to Maori. Not adopting UPOV 1991 is not a preference to Maori.

Ø The Crown convinced the other TPPA countries to adopt an annex that allows NZ to either adopt UPOV 1991 or pass a domestic law equivalent to UPOV 1991 that complies with te Tiriti. But it has to do one or the other within 3 years of the TPPA coming into force.

Ø That obligation hasn’t changed in the TPPA-11. National and Labour didn’t try to have it suspended.

Ø The Waitangi Tribunal has retained oversight of this matter and is actively monitoring it.

Ø The claimants say MBIE’s consultation process is unacceptable and have set in train their own process for expert advice and consultation.

Foreign investors’ rights

Ø The TPPA (and earlier NZ agreements) allows foreign investors from the countries involved to challenge laws, policies and decisions of a NZ government in controversial ad hoc offshore investment tribunals (known as investor-state dispute settlement or ISDS). An ISDS tribunal can award massive damages against a government for breaching special protections the agreements give to foreign investors.
PM Ardern has called ISDS a ‘dog’.

Ø The new government tried to protect NZ from ISDS in the TPPA-11, but failed.

Ø Australia signed a side-letter with NZ not to allow their investors to use ISDS against each other. But that side-letter was in the original TPPA and in other agreements. It’s not new to Labour.

Ø The new government says some other countries will sign a similar side letter, but won’t say who. Unless all the other ten countries sign side-letters, they don’t protect NZ from the risk of ISDS disputes.

Ø A provision that allowed investors to use ISDS to enforce infrastructure contracts has been suspended (not removed); but that is marginal and doesn’t change the TPPA’s special protections to foreign investors or the ISDS process through which they can enforce them.

Ø The Treaty of Waitangi exception is unlikely to protect NZ from an ISDS case over new laws to promote compliance with te Titiri.

Ø The Waitangi Tribunal noted ‘uncertainty about the extent to which ISDS may have a chilling effect on the Crown’s willingness or ability to meet particular Treaty obligations in the future or to adopt or pursue otherwise Treaty-consistent measures.’(p.50

Ø The government points to other protections for public policy measures, but those protections don’t apply to the main rules that investors rely on in ISDS disputes.

Ø The new government has instructed officials to oppose ISDS in future agreements, which is a positive move. But that doesn’t mean it will walk away if other parties insist on it. Officials are likely to advise that any new market access for agriculture is an acceptable trade-off.

Water

Ø Trade Minister David Parker says NZ First’s policy of taxing bottled water exports would breach various international agreements because it is discriminatory. But there is a much bigger risk that foreign investors could threaten to bring an ISDS dispute if moves to resolve water claims affect their commercial interests.

Ø NZ has protected the right to adopt discriminatory measures in the TPPA-11 ‘with respect to water, including the allocation, collection, treatment and distribution of drinking water’. But it says: ‘This reservation does not apply to the wholesale trade and retail of bottled mineral, aerated and natural water.’

Ø That reservation of the right to regulate on water does not apply to the main rules that investors rely on when they bring ISDS disputes against governments.

Ø The Treaty of Waitangi exception would not stop investors challenging such measures.

Ø There is a serious risk that the government would back away from a proposed solution to Māori rights over water if MFAT or an investor from a TPPA country, says the solution would breach NZ’s obligations.

Land and forestry

Ø The new government is rushing through changes to the Overseas Investment Act to restrict foreign purchases of residential housing. They admit that the law would breach the TPPA if it was passed after the agreement came into force.

Ø In January 2018 the government also sought consultation with Maori over proposals to redefine sensitive land under the Overseas Investment Act to include forestry cutting rights.

Ø The separation of cutting rights from the land was a device used by the Labour government in 1988 to allow corporatisation of the forests and separation of the land from the trees so the forests could be privatised.

Ø Labour and NZ First want to restore the right of NZ, and Maori, ownership of the forests. They have to change the foreign investment law before the TPPA comes into force, because they can’t do so afterwards.

Ø The TPPA only allows the government to keep the categories that are subject to foreign investment vetting which exists when the TPPA comes into force.

Ø The TPPA text says the vetting applies to ‘sensitive land’. If the government wants to implement its election policy, it has to rush through these changes to the law.

Ø But if the TPPA enters into force the government won’t be able to change the investment law to address other failed treaty settlements, such as fisheries quotas, or policies like carbon credits for forests.

Ø Even if changes are made to allow restrictions on future foreign investors, any existing investors from TPPA countries could still bring an ISDS dispute claiming their rights have been breached by the new laws because they can’t get as much for selling their assets as they had expected.

‘Consultation’ and tino rangatiratanga

Claimants in Te Paparahi o te Raki (Wai 1040) have challenged the Crown’s right to negotiate international treaties without the full and equal participation of nga iwi me nga hapu.

Ø The original TPPA was negotiated in total secrecy, aside from leaks. So were the meetings after the US withdrew. National was not interested in genuine consultation with anyone, let alone recognising te tino rangatiratanga o nga iwi me nga hapu. The same secrecy continues under the new government.

Ø The Waitangi Tribunal advised the Crown to consult with Māori to make the Treaty of Waitangi exception stronger. That hasn’t happened.

Labour has kept the same exception. Labour held meetings in various cities in early December and January. But this is not a good faith dialogue: they say the TPPA-11 is the best deal they can get, no further changes can be made, and they are prepared to sign it. The ‘consultation’ can’t change anything. That’s not a Treaty partnership.

The new government says it wants to develop a ‘new and inclusive trade agenda’ that makes trade and investment work for Māori, small business, women, and address climate change, environment and regional development.

That sounds positive. But the examples it gives are clip-ons to existing agreements that don’t address, let alone override, the problems the agreements create. And they are usually unenforceable.

Labour and NZ First’s positions on TPPA and te Tiriti show that it’s businesses as usual for the Crown.

They will try to shut down the Waitangi Tribunal process, while they run consultations around the motu (eg Wellington, 12 February) to promote an agreement the majority of parliamentary parties say they will support.

Other processes to advance Titiri-based continue over UPOV 1991.

Public meetings will be held in February in

Auckland on 12th,
Wellington on 14th,
Nelson on 20th,
Christchurch on 21st
and Dunedin on 22nd.

The arguments being used to promote the agreement don’t stack up for Maori or for Aotearoa/New Zealand.

The parties that make up new government promised change. If they are going to deliver, their positions on TPPA have to change.

‘Peaceful’ America Has Been At War 93% of the Time – 222 Out of 239 Years – Since 1776

Note in the article, the wars that were in effect land wars, are called by the name of those from whom the lands were wrested: “Indian Wars”. They were named thus in my country … “Maori Wars” until more recent years when they got corrected to “Land Wars”. The former titles of course deflected the reader’s eye from the real instigators of  the wars. Nobody wanted to admit the  real reason for them.

February 23, 2015 “ICH” –  The U.S. Has Only Been At Peace For 21 Years Total Since Its Birth

In 2011, Danios wrote:

Below, I have reproduced a year-by-year timeline of America’s wars, which reveals something quite interesting: since the United States was founded in 1776, she has been at war during 214 out of her 235 calendar years of existence.  In other words, there were only 21 calendar years in which the U.S. did not wage any wars.

To put this in perspective:

* Pick any year since 1776 and there is about a 91% chance that America was involved in some war during that calendar year.

* No U.S. president truly qualifies as a peacetime president.  Instead, all U.S. presidents can technically be considered “war presidents.”

* The U.S. has never gone a decade without war.

* The only time the U.S. went five years without war (1935-40) was during the isolationist period of the Great Depression.

Australia unveils plan to become one of the world’s top 10 profiteers in blood money

We had Key keeping in step with the arms trade not so long ago. Keeping up with big brother Amerika (that country that has been at war 93% of the time – 222 out of 239 years – since 1776). Trying to anyway, in spite of all the opposition from people who don’t want war. They’ll also be in Royal company given the British Queen’s propensity for dabbling seriously in the trade. My Kiwi Veteran father used to say wars would never end because wars make money, he who lied about his age in order to join his four brothers and go fight for ‘King & country’ as was the lie spun to young cannon fodder back in the day. These advocates of war who profiteer from it should be sent to the front lines themselves, they and their children. Although now the brave soldiers are killing people including civilians from their armchairs with drone warfare.  We’ve come so far haven’t we? Killing’s become a very fine art indeed. I heard the other day there’s a Lockheed Martin Factory in the Wellington region now. Same corporation that has its fingers in the Rocket Pad pie up the East Coast. Key got us well into those corporate pockets.

Anyway Aus is set to excel at the weapons trade & become one of the world’s ‘top dogs’. Being top dog is really important in the fake corporate world of profits & faceless, mindless killers of all things beautiful. Well in my opinion anyway. They’re going to soon be the death of us all. And I make no apology for the header photo of the grieving civilian mother with her boy whose life has been snuffed out by this sickening trade. It is so wrong.

Here is the article from the Guardian:

PM spruiks jobs for local manufacturers but Tim Costello of World Vision says ‘whatever money we make from this dirty business will be blood money’

Australia is set to become one of the world’s largest arms exporters under a controversial Turnbull government plan.

The prime minister, Malcolm Turnbull, has unveiled a new “defence export strategy” setting out the policy and strategy to make Australia one of the world’s top 10 weapons exporters within the next decade.

Hailing it a job-creating plan for local manufacturers, the Coalition says Australia only sells about $1.5bn to $2.5bn in “defence exports” a year and it wants the value of those exports to increase significantly.

It has identified a number of “priority markets”: the Middle East, the Indo-Pacific region, Europe, the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada and New Zealand.

It will set up a new Defence Export Office to work hand in hand with Austrade and the Centre for Defence Industry Capability to coordinate the commonwealth’s whole-of-government export efforts and provide a focal point for more arms exports.

A $3.8bn Defence Export Facility, to be administered by the Export Finance and Insurance Corporation, will provide the finance local companies need to help them sell their defence equipment overseas.

A new Australian Defence Export Advocate position, set up to support the Australian Defence Export Office, will provide industry with the constant high-level advocacy needed to promote Australian-made weapons overseas.

Did you hear about the NZ businessman who challenged the privatization of New Zealand’s electricity infrastructure & is now in exile?

I found this initially on a blog called lawisanass-wingate.blogspot.co.nz  Unfortunately that blog is no longer online. It cited Kiwis First’s article below.

Not too long ago I posted here an article on the privatization ‘two step’ you could call it because it really is smoke and mirrors. The sale of your assets  by your govt/corporation Kiwis (same modus operandi in other countries) has to look like a good thing so as usual these characters pulling the strings, ‘sell’ it to you as such. On power we were told power would be cheaper. “Yeah right” as the Tui saying goes.  Throughout our recent history, there have been those who have challenged this new status quo and Simon Kaiwai’s been one of them. That  removal of your sovereignty is the real aim, is clearly demonstrated in the response Simon got from the powers that be, leading him finally to be deemed ‘mentally unfit’. Among other things.  This is a real eye opener.
You can find other videos and interviews about Simon on Youtube. In the meantime, read on.

From  Kiwis First on the sale of state owned assets to private companies, particularly as it panned out for a former CEO of a medical company who decided to challenge those sales. With dire consequences that clearly demonstrate the fascist and totalitarian direction your country appears to be headed in Kiwis. 

Simon Kaiwai, the former CEO of an international medical company and business consultant decided to challenge the privatization of New Zealand’s electricity infrastructure in 2009, prompted by power price rises well in excess of inflation, as well as private profiteering off public-owned assets. He had been particularly moved by the death of Folole Muliaga in 2007 resulting from her power being cut off despite the electricity company’s knowledge she was dependent upon a breathing apparatus and the family’s vain attempts to pay by installments.

Kaiwai says, “privatisation of public assets initially involves, placing ownership into two ministers’ personal names.” From there determination of which private company buys it and for how much becomes muddled. This process was something Kaiwai wanted to see ventilated in the public arena. Ultimately, Kaiwai wanted a jury to decide whether the sale of the electricity infrastructure to private corporations was 1) approved by a majority of the public owners and 2) fairly compensated for.

The selling of public assets has been a vexed one in New Zealand for years, with many infrastructure assets such as the railways being sold off at a bargain, only to be repurchased by the government in run down condition and on the verge of collapse years later. There was something in the challenge by Kaiwai that attracted a swift and heavy handed response – the physical demonstration of which attracted 16,000 hits in its first week on YouTube despite no mainstream media coverage in New Zealand.

It began in September 2009 when Mr Kaiwai demanded an “authenticated bill” from his electricity retailer Trustpower instead of their “remittance advice” statement of $146. This was legally significant to Kaiwai. He considered that if he could later prove the retailer was operating under an unlawful charter, the authenticated bill gave him legal recourse that the remittance advice statement did not. Trustpower failed to respond to the request, instead issuing a demand notice for $215.
To demonstrate his challenge was principled and not motivated by a personal desire to evade payment for power, Kaiwai paid $900, a good faith overpayment which would ensure supply to his home, where his expectant wife was due to give birth. Increasing demands for the authenticated bills brought threats by the retailer to turn off power, which escalated in threats by Kaiwai to trespass any Trustpower representatives.
In a matter of weeks from the initial dispute, electricians entered the property under Police escort to disconnect the family’s power.
After Trustpower refused to supply the family, the landlord opened an account with Contact Energy. However in a letter dated 7 January 2010 Contact Energy informed the Kaiwai family “Now that we more fully understand the history of the account, we are not willing to supply electricity…”.
It was 24 November 2009 when two Police constables and two Top Energy electricians broke through a locked gate, ignored the no trespass signs, intent to disconnect the electricity.
On seeing the Police Kaiwai grabbed his video camera and attempted to question the Top Energy workers. Police constables David Reynolds and Hayden Nicol responded to the filming by jumping on Kaiwai, pepper spraying and then beating him repeatedly.
While they were taking Mr Kaiwai away one of them admitted to the assault.

The 37 year old Mr Kaiwai had never before been charged or arrested. Nonetheless, District Court Judge De Ridder denied Simon bail after police opposed bail on the grounds Kaiwai had a “distorted view of society” which the police alleged posed a public threat. Mr Kaiwai’s response that he had received no legal representation was ignored by Judge De Ridder.
Consequently, Mr Kaiwai’s pregnant wife was left at home without electricity while her husband was held the maximum two weeks in prison under the Criminal Procedure Mentally Impaired Persons Act 2003.
Psychiatric evaluation by two specialists was required, in accordance with the Act, for which Kaiwai was transported to Auckland Central Remand Prison. Mr Kaiwai refused evaluation. Nevertheless, one of the psychiatrists was prepared to endorse the State’s position that Mr Kaiwai was mentally unfit, an opinion which, once concurred by another doctor, can legally imprison someone for up to five years in New Zealand without trial.
Mr Kaiwai did not learn his lesson from this narrow escape from the Mason Clinic. His protestations brought further attempts by the police to get a compulsory mental health order to commit him. He subsequently sought an “independent survey” of his “case study” from New Zealand psychiatrists. Unwittingly, Dr Justin Barry-Walsh, a distinguished psychiatrist in “medico-legal assessments” agreed there were significant ethical questions in the accepted approach to Mr Kaiwai’s psychiatric evaluation.
In the survey Dr Barry-Walsh disclosed between 21-40% of his business comes from court engagements.
It took more than a year and 20 court appearances for Mr Kaiwai to have the charges of ‘assault’ and ‘resist’ dismissed and, along the way, disprove the false accusations by the State regarding his mental health.

Kaiwai states I’ve been utterly shocked that by exposing a breach of the public trust by those in public service, I have become victim to what I believe is collusion between the electricity companies, the police, the courts and even the health system.”

Undeterred, Kaiwai exhorts, “Given the trend toward privatisation of public assets I believe it is essential we address this issue before more families endure such hardship.'”  Kaiwai himself seems less likely to personally lead this charge. Judge MacDonald, a former Police Prosecutor, blocked Mr Kaiwai’s private prosecutions against Top Energy, Trustpower and the Police.

This ordeal, and the increasing difficulty of getting a jury trial in New Zealand, has led the once proud Kiwi and his family to flee for the safety of… Chile. Despite the police and court attempts to label them insane and a menace to society, it is ironic that it is their victory against the State – and the retribution this typically engenders in New Zealand – that left them feeling unsafe living in their homeland. Though many in the community were supportive, the family was particularly struck by the widespread apathy to their ordeal and, perhaps more alarming, the vocal few who sought to silence their protestations.

And finally summing this up we have the late Barry Smith, a Kiwi evangelist and investigative author who was interviewed in the UK in 2000 by Revelation TV. (The video is on our front page). He in fact introduced this subject of privatisation earlier on in the ’90s, having traveled and shared on the topic of a one world government (aka global governance, new world order) since the early 1970s when I personally heard him myself. Bringing his family with him, they towed & lived in a caravan, and would conduct week long crusades in both small towns and cities, sharing the details of the plan. It is a plan which he said the planners believed only one in a million people would ever find out. He would say cheekily that he was that one. Ever grateful for his revelations on this plan which is foretold in Biblical scripture, it has been easier to digest what is happening now in our world. In effect most of what he said is coming to pass. See also our One World Govt / New World Order page.

The Flexner Report: How J.D. Rockefeller Used the AMA to Take Over Western Medicine

The Flexner Report

…was a very useful tool commissioned by oil magnate John D. Rockefeller. Rockefeller had made a massive fortune with Standard Oil and was setting his sights on gaining a monopoly in the drug and pharmaceutical industry. However, first he had to get rid of the competition, which consisted of natural non-allopathic healing modalities – naturopathy, homeopathy, eclectic medicine (botanical and herbal medicine), holistic medicine, etc. Hemp was also a threat to his plans, since cannabis has tremendous medical benefit – it can be used to alleviate pain for numerous diseases and even has anti-cancer properties. How did Rockefeller deal with this? By means of the Flexner Report.

Enter Abraham Flexner on the Rockefeller Payroll

Rockefeller paid Abraham Flexner to visit all the medical schools in the US at that time. He released the so-called “Flexner Report” in 1910, which called for the standardization of medical education and concluded there were too many doctors and medical schools in America. Rockefeller then used his control of the media to generate public outcry at the findings of the report – which, by means of the classic elite strategy of “Problem, Reaction, Solution” as David Icke calls it, ultimately led Congress to declare the AMA (American Medical Association) the only body with the right to grant medical school licenses in the United States. This suited Rockefeller perfectly – he then used the AMA (which may be better called to the American Murder Association due their widespread use and endorsement of toxic vaccines, drugs, chemotherapy and radiation) to compel the Government destroy the natural competition, which it did through regulating medical schools.

Health, Inc.: How Modern Medicine Became a Monopoly

The symbol of modern medicine

Today I give you the true story about how modern medicine became the only show in town. This is an important lesson to know, because it will help you to understand the business of medicine better, and the unsavory and corrupt beginnings of our current system of medicine.

When you are sick and go to the doctor, you take it for granted that you are going to the person who knows what to do to help you get better. When the doctor diagnoses what your problem is, and then pulls out his or her prescription pad and writes you a prescription for a drug that will take care of the problem, you then feel relieved.

Rare & deadly cancers found downstream from Canada’s oil sands – the ongoing rape & pillage of the environment by corporations at the hosts’ expense

Yet another example of how corporations ruin environments and community health by their ongoing rape & pillage pretty much with impunity. Another David & Goliath scenario. What of the lives of these people affected? Shameful. The plunder has to stop.

Study links oilsands pollution to higher cancer rates

“Cancer occurrence increased significantly with participant employment in the oilsands and with the increased consumption of traditional foods and locally caught fish,” said the report.

It also found total levels of carcinogens in the traditionally hunted foods were higher compared with similar studies around the world…”  thestar.com

EDMONTON—A new study by two Alberta First Nations and University of Manitoba scientists says there is a link between oilsands pollutants and higher levels of heavy metals in wildlife, and higher cancer rates in residents.

“There’s something unique that is happening in Fort Chipewyan,” Stéphane McLachlan, the lead researcher from the university, told a news conference Monday. “It’s a situation that is alarming and demands attention.”

The report — titled Environmental and Human Health Implications of Athabasca Oil Sands — is the result of three years of research. It was funded by the Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation and the Mikisew Cree First Nation.

The study says it found 23 cases of cancer in 94 participants.

“Cancer occurrence increased significantly with participant employment in the oilsands and with the increased consumption of traditional foods and locally caught fish,” said the report.

It also found total levels of carcinogens in the traditionally hunted foods were higher compared with similar studies around the world.

But it found the dietary intake was low because community members were turning away from the traditional foods in favour of store-bought sustenance.

The methodology combined scientific methods with anecdotal information from community members.

10 REASONS CANADA NEEDS TO RETHINK THE TAR SANDS

Kevin Grandia, DeSmogBlog
Waking Times

As a Canadian it blows my mind that we can have the second largest deposits of oil in the world, but our government remains billions in debt and one in seven Canadian children live in poverty.

I feel like we are being played for fools here in Canada, because foreign owned oil companies like ExxonMobil,

British Petroluem and PetroChina (71% of oil sands production is owned by foreign shareholders) are making billions exporting raw tar sand from our country, while us citizens are dealing with all the nasty downsides.

Time for a tar sands reality check.

Here’s the top 10 reasons Canada needs to rethink their unrelenting desire to expand tar sands operations:

1. The Canada tar sands isn’t just an environmental issue, it is also a social justice, human rigths and health issue. A higher incidence of rare and deadly cancers has been documented in First Nations communities downstream of the oil sands by doctors, the Alberta Health Department and First Nations since 2007.

2. Like birds? Me too. Did you know that over 30 million birds will be lost over the next 20 years due to tar sands development?

3. 95% of the water used in tar sands surface mining is so polluted it has to be stored in toxic sludge pits. That’s 206,000 litres of toxic waste discharged every day.

4. Canada’s tar sands make Hoover Dam look like lego blocks, because we are home to 2 of the top 3 largest dams in the world. The dams are used to hold back all that toxic sludge produced by mining tar sands.

First kumara, then potatoes, now pumpkin prices are sky high … the uncomfortable truth about the control of your food supply

“…control food and you control the people …”

Kissinger: “Control oil and you control nations; control food and you control the people.” US strategy deliberately destroyed family farming in the US and abroad and led to 95% of all grain reserves in the world being under the control of six multinational agribusiness corporations….SOURCE

Henry Kissinger is on record as saying that. Now why would  Kissinger want to control people? If you’ve never pondered that question you’ve probably been listening to mainstream media which would’ve told you he never said it and in fact nobody wants to control people & such thoughts are the product of the conspiracy machine. He’s on metabunk as having not said it. Not the place to look for truth. There are sites like that Rat-Tumor-Monsanto-GMO-Cancer-Study-3-Wide2.jpgthat say Professor Seralini’s research on glyphosate (the rats with very large tumours that Monsanto didn’t find because they only tested their rats for the required 90 days) is fiction. If you find something there or on similar sites you can be sure there’s a likelihood it is true.

As Noam Chomsky pointed out, in both “old” and “new” world orders the central goal has pivoted around the issue of control: “Control of the population is the major task of any state that is dominated by particular sectors of the domestic society and therefore functions primarily in their interest …”[1] Such “particular sectors” as referred to are the minority elite, who pursue controlling strategies to “engineer” nation and international affairs in line with their aims. And these aims are for the most part based on greed and power; and the need to keep the masses contented and docile.  SOURCE

Continuing with the food topic, did you notice the sequence of price rises? Here in NZ, first kumara, then potatoes, now pumpkin. I saw a blogger post a pumpkin with $17 on it (NZ) recently. A month ago I bought one for $3. Just as I was telling my family after the potato price hike, buy pumpkins when they’re cheap and add them to your mashed potatoes. (Along with telling them, grow your own potatoes). Did you also notice that in between the potato and the pumpkin price hike came the introduction of … ta da … GM potatoes? Quite strategically done I thought. And you can bet I’m sure those potatoes when they’re grown here in (not) clean green, (not) GE free NZ, that they’ll be cheap as chips no pun intended but it does fit quite nicely – given chips are quite a staple, as are the other items on the now outrageously dear and out-of-the-reach-of-many-families aforementioned staples. Think potato chips for instance, and fish and chips. And finally, yes, it’s the weather that’s created this problem but look who has a hand in the weather as well. It’s well documented.

And finally, whether deliberate or not, you need to read Susan George’s ‘How the Other Half Dies’ (free pdf) on hunger and who’s causing it in the so called undeveloped countries that were very rich in resources when the colonizer ‘found’ them. (For other good reads on topic see our resources page at the main menu. And watch ‘The Corporation’ movie on the Corporations pages for an insight into how corporations work for themselves and not you).

Time to grow your own food and stop supporting corrupt corporations. Or buy from your local farmer market.
