The Bromley, 1080 whitewash

EWR comment: Remember this story? I’ve neglected 1080 for some time now … it is still on the radar though and they continue to spread 1080 here in NZ. Read the latest whitewash on the Bromley incident, mainstream’s article titled: Company was ‘taking shortcuts’ when worker ended up in coma after poisoning incident
(Further updates to follow)

From Carol Sawyer

UNBELIEVABLE? Well no, not really. Time everyone woke up to the corruption. But as far as this article is concerned, why don’t reporters make themselves familiar with the substances in question? The company was making pure 1080, (sodium fluoroacetate), and had in the warehouse the substances necessary to make it (400L of ethyl fluoroacetate, sodium hydroxide, and ethanol) as well as some unknown quantity of sodium fluoroacetate.

“The company was under pressure to meet its supply obligations and decided to try to manufacture sodium fluoroacetate – the active ingredient in 1080 – locally rather than importing it.”
Sodium fluoroacetate IS pure 1080, and NO-ONE in NZ has the consent to manufacture it, not even the NZ government’s own 1080 bait factory in Whanganui. The pure, deadly ingredient is imported from Tull Chemical Co in Oxford, Alabama, and has been for many, many years. It is the active ingredient in 1080 cereal baits, not “the active ingredient in 1080”.
One of the most deadly substances in the world. 1/143 of a teaspoon can kill a 70kg human being and yet this was being manufactured illegally in a warehouse in a heavily built up area, with an aquatic centre (where children learn to swim) across the driveway and a preschool nearby, without consent, without signage, and unbeknown to the other businesses in the building at 56 Wickham St, Bromley.
Not only that but the warehouse had no ventilation. I am told that in court yesterday when asked about the means of ventilation they said they would lift the roller door onto the carpark/entrance!! I am also told that the judge said that 1080 was not to be referred to in court as 1080, but as sodium fluoroacetate. How many people in NZ know the chemical sodium fluoroacetate is 1080! Why would the judge say that do you think? Rhetorical question.
Oh, words fail me… those who have been following this case will know what I mean. A whitewash, pure and simple.
Here is the true story behind this:

1080 ACCIDENT AT BROMLEY, CHRISTCHURCH – WILL IT BE A COVER-UP? 18 MONTHS DOWN THE TRACK IT’S NOT LOOKING GOOD!

By Carol Sawyer

Richard Healey says:

“It’s a tale that illustrates an important and irrefutable point, the organisations that New Zealanders believe are there to protect them from the sort of dishonest sociopaths who are behind this sordid mess are actually only there to make them THINK that they are protected.

Where in God’s name should you start?

Where were the “democratically” elected councillors when the West Coast District Council ignored their constituents’ widespread and well publicised opposition to the use of 1080 in order to bankroll this commercially, morally and scientifically flawed enterprise?

Where was the office of the auditor general when $272,549 was slipped out the back door as an “impairment” to avoid scrutiny of what would otherwise be very questionable business decision?

Where were ECAN while all of this was taking place under their noses? The site is still not listed on their register of land use information to this day.

Where were Worksafe when this witches’ brew of toxic chemicals was deposited upwind of a densely populated residential zone without even a rudimentary warning sign in place?

Where was ANYONE when the council, in what I can only view as a barefaced attempt to slink out from underneath its responsibilities for site decontamination, sold off its shareholding at a massive loss?

Where were ECANZ, FENZ and WorkSafe when the job of ensuring that the site was made safe in a timely manner was discussed?

Where were the courts when the task of holding the, frankly despicable, perpetrators of these events promptly to task arose?

The only people who come out of this with any credit are the foot soldiers on the ground who went in to clean up this unholy mess, the ESR team, the FENZ fire-fighters and the ambulance crews and medical staff who saved the life of the worker involved in the original explosion.

Outcomes like this don’t happen through laziness or incompetence. They happen by design.”

***************************************************

Email from WorkSafe NZ forwarded by Asst Area Commander, Steve Kennedy, Fire and Emergency NZ (FENZ), to ?, January, 2020.

Here is the text of that email for clearer reading, though I have attached the screenshot too:

“Completed by Steve Kennedy Just a quick follow-up from the operation we mounted with both FENZ and ESR assistance at the Pest Control Research NZ Limited worksite at Unit 1, 56 Wickham Street, Bromley, Christchurch in June last year (Wednesday, 12 June and Thursday, 13 June 2019). The site remains sealed under WorkSafe direction and has not been entered since Thursday, 13 June 2019 the site remains contaminated and the same hazardous substances remain in situ. We continue to work with Pest Control Research for them to developed and produce an adequately robust decontamination and site recovery plan, while there appears to be some reluctance on their part to move this along. I have been ask to confirm our understand that FENZ continues to flag this site/address in your CAD systems as a contaminated hazardous substance location containing quantities of: Sodium Hydroxide [CAS 1310732 ] (solid) Ethyl Fluoroacetate [CAS 459-72-3] (liquid) Ethanol [CAS 64-17-5) (liquid) Sodium Fluoroac by Steve Kennedy”

Also attached is the email that says fire officers must not enter the building. A photo of this email is attached, but for ease of reading I have copied out the text here. It was also sent by Fire Service Asst Area Commander Steve Kennedy, again in January, 2020, and says:

“This message was sent with High Importance.

In June 2019 FENZ, in conjunction with Worksafe, was involved in an incident at Pest Control Research, 1/56 Wickham. The site remains contaminated following an industrial incident involving the manufacture of Sodium Fluoroacetate.

No entry is to be made to this building. The site report and Dispatch Safety Alert have been updated.”

Tokoroa car crash that killed two prominent Chinese dissidents could be ‘sabotage’

Mr Xi was the chairman of the New Zealand branch of the Federation for a Democratic China, Mr Wang belonged to the Independent Chinese PEN Centre and Mr Yu is Secretary-General of New Zealand Value Alliance.

They were heading to Wellington for a planned protest at Parliament the following day and to present politicians with a petition urging them to take Chinese political interference seriously.

The crash involved three cars and happened just after 1pm near Galaxy Road. Two others were injured.

Police say an initial assessment shows a north-bound vehicle crossed the centreline, glancing a south-bound vehicle before colliding head on with a third vehicle.

Today the justice select committee was sitting at Parliament to discuss the possibility of Chinese political interference in New Zealand. Canterbury University academic Anne Marie Brady, who specialises in Chinese politics, opened her submission with news of Tuesday’s tragic crash, saying it had “bearing” on the issues being discussed today.

She said the men’s petition detailed how unsafe they felt in New Zealand.

A worker is said to be in a hopeful condition in hospital, after a workplace incident involving chemicals in Christchurch

This all happened two weeks ago and has only just come to the public light. I wonder why?  Keep in mind the recent alarm sounded by Alan Gurden regarding the poison factory in Christchurch. EWR


12 June 2019

“The Institute for Environmental Science and Research is carrying out testing at Bromley’s Pest Control Research site, and WorkSafe is investigating.

The staff member was exposed to the chemicals two weeks ago at the site which handles, but doesn’t make, 1080 poison.

Research director at the site Matthew O’Brien says they’re supporting their worker.

He says they’re doing everything they can to support their man and his family, as well as to assist WorkSafe with their work.”  (Read more related links with videos below).

Before investigators were even cleared to enter Notre Dame’s smoldering ruins the French Government had already ruled out arson?

This is written from a Christian perspective. If you don’t agree with the view point  & want to discuss that please go to the source at the link.

From https://leohohmann.com

That’s right: Before investigators had even been cleared to enter the smoldering ruins of the Western World’s most iconic Christian symbol, they had already ruled out the possibility of arson.

I am not saying that any person or group should be blamed for this fire without proof. What I am saying, is that the French government’s absurdly quick action in determining the cause makes a mockery of the concept of an honest investigation. Such malfeasance in carrying out due diligence could easily backfire.

Without an honest and transparent investigation, people will always look at the burning of Notre Dame as a monumental conspiracy. Fill in the blank as to who you want to make responsible for the devastation because the French wimped out and declared it an accident before any investigative techniques could have realistically been employed.

Smart Meters Fire, Living Hell and Bureaucratic Messes

Here is a smart (aka advanced) meter story that will shock you! Learn of the hell this woman has been through since a smart meter was installed on her home … with neither her knowledge nor her consent! A long tale of basically  passing the buck by all concerned. (Names are changed for privacy reasons outlined in the article).

 electric-199669_1280By Catherine J. Frompovich, from Activist Post: January 4th started off as a typical day for me. I woke up, made some coffee, filed some applications for jobs, started laundry, cleaned the kitchen and began preparing for an interview I had later in the day. I had gone upstairs to move laundry from the washer to the dryer and fold the clothes from the dryer when all the sudden the power went out. I figured no big deal, we have this happen all the time, and it will come back on. Sure enough, it came back on and then immediately went back off. I waited. It didn’t come back on. So, I decided to go downstairs….As I got to the bottom of the stairs, I could hear this noise. It sounded like feedback in stereo speakers that had a pulse to it. I stood there at the bottom of the steps trying to determine where the noise was coming from, but it sounded like it was all around me. What happened next – it happened so fast – was a flash, like lightning inside my house. I literally cradled my head and dropped to the floor, while my dogs started going crazy. I waited for the popping to stop and I opened my eyes….

It gets worse!
