The NZDF have practiced with international troops as far back as 2015 to ‘quell civil unrest’

As far back as 2015 the NZDF has run exercises based on quelling ‘civil unrest’. They practiced with troops from the US, UK, Canada, Australia, the Pacific and elsewhere. Bit familiar isn’t it? The practice runs, like Event 201. The appearance of the military in the streets of NZ has been going on more in very recent years, frequently joined by international troops. The new ‘global’ policing army as it were. Which of course we are seeing right now in plain sight. This article we posted in 2017 covers a then current exercise called Operation Katipo, and a previous similar one from 2015 that some locals found disturbing.

QUOTE: “The ‘protest’ turned ugly, however, with several civilians being thrown to the ground, handcuffed and dragged away, with several sustaining injuries. One young woman reported on Facebook that she had been pulled into a tank and that she had been assaulted.  After a visit from Defence personnel the post was removed.”

The aircraft pictured in the article, a Globemaster like that seen in the South Island, I captured myself, flying very low & slow like a hovercraft almost, over the Rangitikei. If you go to the article links below you will see Operation Katipo coverage in the South Island at the time by the Daily Blog.

QUOTE “…if five military helicopters, six airlift aircraft, two Globemasters and an Orion surveillance aircraft were not enough to worry a small town, many New Zealanders would be concerned to learn that a highly sophisticated RQ4 Global Hawk drone, remotely operated from the US Air Base in Guam, also took part in the exercise.  It’s role? To capture ‘images of simulated adversary areas of interest’.”

QUOTE: “One woman said that ‘Helicopters buzzed overhead for most of the day, huge military aircraft flew low over our homes, and it was scary waking up to find armed troops running up your street.’”

1080 threat suspects shocked to discover their house was bugged

From the Nelson Mail

A Golden Bay couple suing police for being wrongly targeted in a 1080 blackmail investigation have been shocked to discover their home was bugged.

Rolf and Ute Kleine, who run teahouse and bakery Takaka Infusion, obtained police documents through their lawyer in November that reveal their house was bugged with a surveillance device 20 days prior to a police search of their home in 2015.

The Kleines have lodged a statement of claim with the Nelson High Court and are suing police next year.

They say both searches and their warrant applications were unlawful and illegal, and they had been inaccurately profiled by police seeking those responsible for a threat to Fonterra to put 1080 pesticide into baby milk formula.

In one of the police documents the couple obtained, Senior Sergeant Aaron Pascoe wrote that “very little” conversation could be picked up through the surveillance device planted in their home.

“I believe that the lack of evidence to date from the Surveillance Device warrant is either due to the poor quality…, or an indication that Rolf Kleine has acted alone (so he has not spoken to his wife about what he has done), or both,” he wrote.

Rolf Kleine said the whole thing “keeps getting worse and worse”.

“Police didn’t find anything, not even a little bit against us, and they just kept going and kept going with no evidence at all,” he said.

Ute Kleine said the couple used to joke that police might have bugged their home, but when it was revealed they really had, they were left reeling again.

“It’s different if it’s your phone than if it’s really your private room, and they can listen to everything you say and do,” she said.

“When I am at home, sometimes I have this feeling, ‘is there somebody listening to me?’ It’s not a good feeling at all. Other times I wonder how many times did they actually enter our house; it must have been at least three times.”
