NZ plans police checkpoints lest you intended skiving off to your family bach this weekend

Getting Orwellian isn’t it? The entire planet virtually is under ‘friendly’ control/surveillance/lockdown. Remember, this is protecting your health. Same as the coming vaccine will be & as the latest lamestream murmurings have it, they are planning to visit your home to see if anybody is infected. WHO that is. You’ll be removed & isolated. EWR

Police will be operating checkpoints over the Easter weekend to check people are abiding by the lockdown regulations.

Anyone attempting to travel to their bach or holiday home or to make non-essential visits to people outside their bubble will be educated, warned and when necessary arrested, police say.

Police will be ramping up their presence in the community and on the roads this long weekend to ensure people are complying with the Covid-19 Alert Level 4 restrictions.

“We know many New Zealanders may have been planning to catch up with friends and family this weekend, or travel to traditional holiday destinations but we urge anyone who was planning to do this – please change your plans and stay home,” police said in a statement.

France: the ‘papers please’ forms go digital & your phone will vibrate if you exceed distance &/or time away from your home

Hitler would be envious I’m sure. Total surveillance & control all from your handy smart phone. Two articles here updating the papers requirement from the esteemed authorities to leave your house. Getting very Orwellian isn’t it? NZ is following suit with Police checkpoints over Easter we’ve just heard. In case you dare to head off somewhere different and cater to the state of your non-essential mental health. EWR

How Surveillance and 5G Are Being Fast-Tracked Under the Coronavirus lockdown

Note: I’m hearing stories of many more towers being installed across NZ folks. Watch out & let us know if you are seeing the same. Generally accompanied by Police who ask folk taking photos to move along. One observe counted 10 new towers in the Wellington region. The government knows that these have not been tested & that folk have been opposing the installation of 5G nation-wide. No real consultation. They’ve simply ignored us. Now if it were so benign they would roll out the evidence to prove it is not dangerous but nothing’s been forthcoming in fact a well known clip shows us the actual questioning of the industry who admitted, no no money has been spent on testing the tech.  We are flying blind. Still many of us know according to Barry Trower, microwave weapons expert / whistleblower that yes the tech is very dangerous. Watch your vicinity anyway & update us if you see anything. Particularly also watch the schools at night. There have been reports of installations of fast tracking 5G in other countries. All while we are forced to remain at home. Interesting isn’t it? EWR

Read the article anyway from Josh del Sol at Take Back Your Power updates.

SPECIAL REPORT by Derrick Broze & Josh del Sol

While much of the world has been focused on surviving a “pandemic”, social distancing and quarantines, the proponents of mass surveillance and 5G have been scoring major gains.

During this chaotic time it’s extremely important to take note of the advancements of legislation and political maneuvers which threaten our liberty and privacy.

First, on March 23, the 5G rollout progressed even further in the USA with President Donald Trump signing a bill aimed at “securing America’s 5G infrastructure.”

The act, titled the Secure 5G and Beyond Act, calls for a comprehensive plan to securitize a nationalized 5G grid in “not later than 180 days.”

Combined with an additional bill, the Broadband Deployment Accuracy and Technological Availability (DATA) Act, which passed the House on 16 December 2019, these bills seek to nationalize 5G network control. Read more about these two bills.

CONFIRMED: 5G and related tech is being deployed at or near many schools during the lockdown

Last week, after seeing video of some installations of 5G and apparent biometrics at schools during the lockdown, we asked readers to share any evidence they had regarding this apparently fast-tracked deployment in their neighborhoods.

After dozens of comments, emails, and videos, we can safely say there is indeed an effort to install 5G related equipment at or near schools, and throughout cities in general.

For example, Twitter user “Just Michael” filmed an encounter with police parked at a local school, who were either performing or supporting the installation. When asked if what they’re doing is related to 5G installation, the apparent police officer acted odd and attempted to deflect the question.

Watch this rather shocking video:

Another clear example of telecommunications activity at schools comes from a Facebook video posted by IJ Hribal. In this video she visits a school in Longview, Texas to ask a contractor if his work involves 5G. The man claimed there was an ongoing 5G installation which actually began in December 2019. (Note: This has been flagged by Facebook as “fake news.”)

In another video posted on her Facebook page, IJ Hribal writes,

“5G being installed at North Penn High School in Lansdale, PA. This was sent to me by a brave mother who would like to remain anonymous. It’s time to check your schools and start putting these people on notice. We do NOT consent.

Finally, an email from the Mayor of Nevada City CA, Reinette Senum described an increase in activity at local high schools:

“AT&T is going off the hook these last couple weeks in our community. We have never seen anything like it…. We have also been overwhelmed by PG&E trucks including IES trucks installing ‘air conditioners’ on the top of our local high school roof tops. For air conditioner installations??”

Read Ms. Senum’s full letter on our Solutions For Humanity Telegram channel.

PASSED: $2 trillion stimulus package advances surveillance, “telemedicine”

The surveillance state is also being expanded in other ways within the 2200-page, $2 trillion stimulus package that was signed by Donald Trump on Friday, and supported by both parties. It includes billions of dollars to the criminal Federal Reserve for a new US digital dollar, allocates funding for telehealth and telemedicine services which will surely be powered by 5G ‘smart’ grid, and creates a fund for development of vaccines.

INTRODUCED: New bill to end encryption, tap private chats

Another new bill called the EARN IT Act of 2020 will attempt to force encrypted communication providers, like Telegram and Protonmail, to give American intelligence services the ability to wiretap private chats or face steep legal penalties.

The bill was heavily debated in early March but has since stalled, however, we should remain vigilant and not allow ourselves to be distracted by the constant focus on COVID-19. It should be noted that the bill was introduced with bipartisan support from Senators Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), and is also sponsored by Josh Hawley and Dianne Feinstein.

Like other bills being fast-tracked, this law’s supporters are using the cover of Coronavirus panic to quietly advance it without much of a debate.

REPORTS: Governments using ‘smart’ phones to track in-home quarantine compliance & social distancing

Will government agencies seek to actually track us in our homes, using our smart phones, to see if we are obeying their decrees?

It appears that’s where this could be headed, as the US government is reportedly already in talks with Google and Facebook about tracking the location of citizens using their smartphones to ensure they are practicing social distancing.

And around world, at least 11 nations are already using people’s smart phones to unlawfully track them during this COVID-19 event.

See the this regularly-updated COVID-19 Digital Rights Tracker.

The context: what this all means

As we have outlined here, there is clearly an effort to erect the final pieces of the global technocratic infrastructure while humanity is being pushed into a state of fear and panic over a virus with questionable fatality rates.

We are being lied to about the virulence of COVID-19. And the ramifications are unprecedented. For more perspective that intelligently challenges the official narrative, see these links:
Ben Swann video – the breakdown of WHO’s disinformation
Wall Street Journal article – fatality rate too high by orders of magnitude
New England Journal of Medicine article – Dr. Fauci’s admission
CNN article – “majority of people with Covid-19 only suffer mild symptoms, then recover”

It’s becoming increasingly clear that elitist criminals in government, media, and corporations are pushing forward a carefully-orchestrated agenda to establish a global society of technocracy. This agenda appears to include:

  1. vaccines which may be mandatory (or coerced via digital certificates, wristbands, or social credit score);
  2. a rapid, covert expansion of 5G;
  3. global biometric systems (such as this) to track who has been vaccinated or recovered from COVID-19;
  4. the continuing implosion of the economy to make the public dependent on the State;
  5. a digital currency linked to the biometrics and 5G;
  6. fear-based social control system to normalize “social distancing” and unjustified fear of other human beings.  

The only way we will make it out of this precarious situation is to continue to educate our loved ones and community. We cannot simply stay in our “woke” bubbles and preach to the choir.

These are challenging developments to all of us who are paying attention to the facts about 5G, and waking up to see what appears to be an orchestrated technocratic false flag agenda, unprecedented in our nation’s history.

While many leaders in the battle to preserve humanity’s future are understandably in the mode of research, coping and regrouping at this time, going forward we will be in touch with more information about how we can effectively and powerfully respond.

There appears to be an increasingly limited window of time to reach the masses and we must take the opportunity or risk failing to achieve a truly awakened humanity. Please make an honest effort to communicate with your friends, family, and other people you may be interacting with online or in-person.

Together we can change the story that is unfolding in front of our eyes. We can make it through this dark night and create a better world which our hearts know is possible.

French vigilantes kept disabling speed cameras last week as new government figures confirmed that accidents went down with fewer speed cameras.

The revolt of French citizens against speed cameras resulted in a record number of speed cameras being destroyed or otherwise disabled in 2019. Government officials warned that the lack of automated ticketing would have a demonstrably negative impact on road safety. The latest official accident tally, however, recorded 3239 road fatalities in 2019 — a 0.3 percent reduction compared to the prior year, and an all-time low. Injury accidents declined 1.1 percent.

The attacks continued last week. On Sunday, vigilantes in Crest fired two rounds into the speed camera on the RD538 in Crest. The device had just been installed four days earlier. On Saturday, the speed camera in Fitou was set on fire. Yellow spraypaint blinded the speed camera on the ring road in Toulouse, with multiple cameras covered throughout the area on Wednesday. On January 26, the turret speed camera on the RD944 in Molosmes was cut down just three days after it had been installed. A speed camera site was replaced by an impromptu art exhibit last week on the RD13 near Velle-le-Chatel. The six-foot-tall “Rat d’Art” was put in place on January 25.

Your government wants to place sensors in State homes to ‘help & enhance their performance’

Tui ad here? … The question to be asked is why the homes of the poor and vulnerable? Why does the government not put sensors into wealthy homes? They are cloaking this sinister spying eye (let’s call it what it is) with a guise of benevolence & placing them in the homes of people who can’t really refuse them. Unless they want to join ranks of the 43K homeless. The rich & powerful of course would resist them quite successfully. And since when did Housing NZ morph into Kāinga Ora? It had all but disappeared when I attempted to find them all of four years ago (after Key had hocked off & land banked thousands of state homes sitting on prime real estate which is a large part of why we have a homeless problem… Key forgot he was raised in one). This ‘smart’ terminology is Agenda 21/30 technology. Can sniff it a mile away now. Sustainable is the other buzz word. There is nothing smart about sensors on your home. Since when did they care about the homeless, the warmth of your home or the standard of living you have? That ceased with Rogernomics and any rhetoric about caring is always a smoke screen for other agendas. I repeat they do not care. In this case it’s getting you under surveillance & control. Your smart meters do the same job ultimately which is why they have been vigilantly pushing them from day one. Add to that the led street lamps that are also surveillance tools … emitting radiation also, stand under them with an accoustimeter & see the high readings. So here we have it, pack and stack housing, the withering of the state housing stock with rebuilds further off on the horizon now, they are threatening mandatory vaccines, disarming you and arming the Police to the teeth ostensibly to protect you but I hear they’ve been calling on folk to question them on their political views. This is intimidating behavior as also is the placing of sensors on your house.

The corporation parading as a government would do well to spy on the corporate criminals in my opinion. But then they’d be spying on their own & they won’t be doing that any time soon.

And while they’re at it they need to tax themselves at the same rate as the real workers. EWR

From Radio NZ

Plans to collect data by putting sensors in thousands of state houses could result in the information being used to cut benefit payments or even evict tenants, a charity familiar with the project says.

From next May, Kāinga Ora – Housing New Zealand’s successor – wants to begin installing multiple sensors in up to 2000 state houses as part of its Smart Homes project.

The sensors would measure internal humidity and temperature, carbon dioxide levels, light and air pressure, and external temperature and humidity. In some houses, sensors would also collect information about power consumption on up to six separate circuits in each house.

The data, which could be collected for as long as eight years, could be used to work out patterns as granular as when lights were switched on or off, when curtains were drawn, or how many people were in a room.

According to the project’s Request for Proposals (RFP), the aim is to “better understand how [Kāinga Ora] customers use their homes and what barriers there may be to keeping their homes warm, dry and healthy for themselves and their whānau”.

However, the charity Whare Hauora, which provides similar sensors for whānau to use in their own homes, said the scope of the information the project proposed to collect was unnecessary and invasive.

“They’ve taken a technology that they think is cool and then they’re applying it to our vulnerable families whole-hog, and they’re not seeing the impacts,” Whare Hauora kaiwhakahaere (chief executive) Hīria Te Rangi said. “They’re just not thinking it though.”

Despite reassurances from Kāinga Ora, the charity feared the data could be misused by officials – including as evidence to evict families for overcrowding or cut benefit payments for sole parents who had someone sleeping over.

The charity’s concerns were so great that it had chosen not to tender for the project, Ms Te Rangi said.

It wanted the agency to hit pause on the project while it was re-designed with improved ethics and better engagement with tenants.

In a notice to RFP respondents, Kāinga Ora said it would not be using carbon dioxide to measure overcrowding.

Whare Hauora director Amber Craig said she was wary of that.

“To be honest, I’m a Māori woman who has been proven right time and time again not to trust the government with our data.

“Although they say at the moment that they’re not going to use the data in that way, my concern is that there is no visibility if they … suddenly then use that data in not very good ways.”

For that reason, tenants should retain ownership of the data, with full access to their own information and the ability to opt out of certain measurements or research projects, she said.

“[Currently] there’s no opt-in or opt-out, it’s a full, you opt into everything.”

Kāinga Ora did not respond to RNZ’s specific questions about the Smart Homes project or agree to an interview.

In a statement, national portfolio manager Monique Fouwler said the extra information from the sensors would help the agency to work with tenants “to improve and enhance their home’s performance, including trialling different or innovative products, components or services”.

“We will be clear that this information will not be used for other purposes, such as understanding overcrowding,” she said.

The first results of a pilot in Lower Hutt and Palmerston North had provided “valuable insights”, Ms Fouwler said.

“This has included actions they can take such as extra ventilation, or property remediation for us to carry out in some cases.”

Tenants would be provided with a detailed consent form and their relationship with Kāinga Ora would not be affected if they choose not to participate, she said.

They could access their data in accordance with the Privacy Act.

Hīria Te Rangi said anecdotal evidence from some tenants in the pilot study was that they had not yet seen any of their data, nor did they understand all the potential uses.

“Two actually came up to me and said they didn’t realise CO2 measurements could be translated into how many people at whatever time of night.”

University of Auckland senior lecturer Donna Cormack, who specialises in Māori health and data sovereignty, said it was important that everybody had the chance to live in a safe, healthy home.

However, she did not get the sense from the RFP that Kāinga Ora had properly considered all the implications of its project.

“It feels almost like there’s a technological imperative that’s driving it … because we can collect this data we should collect this data, rather than a more considered approach.”

Even if Kāinga Ora’s intentions were good, she was still concerned about “a creeping, increasing type of surveillance capacity being built … without mechanisms that allow communities to be really engaged in the process”.

“Any technology or research project where we’re introducing a device that allows for quite an intrusive level of surveillance … particularly where those technologies are controlled by government agencies or corporations, I think need to be approached very carefully.”

‘A Dystopian Surveillance State Being Built in Plain Sight’: Pentagon Tests Radar-Equipped Balloons to Spy on Vehicles Across Midwest

From commondreams.org

“These programs are not about stopping violence, they’re about social control.”

Millions of Americans across the Midwest this summer are being subjected to surveillance from above as the Pentagon experiments with the use of surveillance radars attached to high-altitude balloons.

“Even in tests, they’re still collecting a lot of data on Americans: who’s driving to the union house, the church, the mosque, the Alzheimer’s clinic. We should not go down the road of allowing this to be used in the United States.”
—Jay Stanley, ACLU

As The Guardian reported Friday, the defense and aerospace contractor Sierra Nevada Corporation was authorized by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to send up to 25 balloons across six states to track vehicles.

U.S. Southern Command commissioned the project for the stated purpose of creating a “persistence surveillance system” to deter drug traffickers and perceived “homeland security threats.”

Civil liberties advocates were distressed at the newly-reported project on Friday, which the Sierra Nevada Corporation obtained a license to begin on July 12 and end on September 1.

“The deployment of this kind of surveillance capability in the United States is incredibly alarming,” Mana Azarmi, policy counsel for the Center for Democracy and Technology, told Common Dreams. “Persistent government surveillance, such as that facilitated by this technology, raises many civil liberties concerns and should not be permitted in the absence of a warrant.”

“Mass surveillance doesn’t make us safer,” the digital rights group Fight for the Future tweeted.

Hong Kong Protestors getting around internet censorship are using Mesh Messaging App China Can’t Block: Usage Up 3685%

From forbes.com

How do you communicate when the government censors the internet? With a peer-to-peer mesh broadcasting network that doesn’t use the internet.

That’s exactly what Hong Kong pro-democracy protesters are doing now, thanks to San Fransisco startup Bridgefy’s Bluetooth-based messaging app. The protesters can communicate with each other — and the public — using no persistent managed network.

And it’s led to swift growth for Bridgefy: downloads are up almost 4,000% over the past 60 days, according to Apptopia estimates (Apptopia is an app metrics company).
