Police launch million-dollar bullet-proof blast-resistant Toyota Land Cruisers

A taste of things to come? Now your guns are gone you’ll be needing their protection even more…? (Thanks to Linda for this link).

From stuff.co.nz

Police have bought three bullet-proof SUVs to be used in high-risk firearms incidents and major national security events.

The Toyota Land Cruisers have been fitted with ballistic armour and will be based in Auckland, Christchurch and Wellington but will be deployed across the country as needed, a police media statement said.

The announcement comes weeks after armed police units were formed in three districts, following the Christchurch mosque terror attack. Police also cited an ongoing meth and crime risk.

The vehicles won’t carry arms, but staff in the vehicles will be armed.

“They need food, I have food” says a Kebab shop owner in NZ who has been told to stop feeding the homeless

We’re seeing this scenario more and more. Interestingly, I’d thought it was a very recent corporate greed scenario with the complete heartlessness toward the poor. However I am reading a fascinating book by by Shashi Tharoor about what the British did to India (the title of the book pretty much, a must read too. He has a short video clip online which outlines the essentials in a debate at Oxford university if you search on Youtube). India was home to many famines one under Winston Churchill’s watch who deliberately diverted food from reaching the suffering Bengalis. Millions died, around 4-6 by memory. Anyway going further back in their history in the earlier days of Empire rule, during poorer times they would not allow people to feed the hungry either. Corporations are heartless cruel entities that care only for profits & they’ve been around a long time.  The stuff story is at the link below. This dear man since moving to NZ from India feeds the hungry & homeless on a Sunday night when business is quiet because he remembers being hungry & struggling himself…. EWR

A kebab shop owner who has been feeding homeless people on Sundays has been asked to stop by a local business association over concerns of anti social behaviour.

Zuhaib Abbas Bangash has been feeding the homeless every Sunday from 5.30pm at his West Auckland shop, Glen Eden Kebab, at Glenmall since November 3. 

But the selfless act has been criticised by the Glen Eden Business Association, who Bangash says told him to stop.

Solving homelessness in Auckland – tiny houses & their communities

From Re: on Facebook

Awesome solution to being homeless … the tiny houses with their little communities.
Be aware also though, we are being forced down this track by a corporate elite that has sold off our state homes for decades now … land banking them even … while people sleep in sheds, garages, tents & their cars. We have 43K homeless people & climbing, and this elite have no intention of properly fixing this anomaly … they are complicit in the Agenda 2030 plans to herd us all into the smart (not) cities they have planned. (See our Agenda 21/30 pages).

“Michelle may live in a tiny house, but she moved there to fulfill a big dream” 🏡🙏

 

In Sept 2018, 19 Doctors who were neither conspiracy theorists nor violent activists, expressed concern about the depositing of 1080 into Auckland’s water supply

People who are against excessive use of poisons in our environment are neither violent, extreme activists nor conspiracy theorists as the media would have you believe. To confirm this you simply must read the independent information. To begin with at least, here is a list of 19 Doctors … why would they spend their valuable time warning both yourself & the authorities about the perceived  dangers of 1080 in your water supply? 

In efforts to prevent the last Hunua Ranges drop this was taken to court by Sue Grey, lawyer where it was noted that DoC’s lawyers asked the judge that their scientist NOT be cross examined. The lawyers were granted their request & the drop went ahead. See the Court approval here.

BELOW IS THE LETTER PREPARED BY DOCTORS WHO WERE CONCERNED ABOUT 1080 POISON BEING DEPOSITED IN DRINKING WATER

Open letter to the Government, Friday, 21st September 2018.

As doctors, we are extremely concerned about the health risk of depositing poisoned bait over 22,500 hectares of the Hunua water catchment area. Specifically, we are concerned about Sodium Fluoroacetate (SMFA / 1080), a known deadly poison which is known to cause sub-lethal effects on reproduction and is classified as a teratogen, having potential to contaminate the Auckland water supply.

There is no effective antidote for 1080 poisoning in humans.

We are extremely concerned that public officials are not adopting a far more precautionary approach to the safety of the Auckland water catchment, especially when the effects of 1080, a highly soluble poison, is not quantifiably able to be tested on how it affects the health of humans.

Studies show that 1080 affects the reproductive organs, the cardiac system, and respiratory system in mammals. There is no safe minimal level known and water testing and sampling after aerial 1080 application cannot prudently protect the public from risk of exposure from this poison.

As doctors, we are responsible for the health of individuals and communities. Therefore, we ask the government to immediately stop the usage of sodium fluoroacetate which has potential to contaminate the New Zealand water supply.

WHY ARE PEOPLE SO CONCERNED ABOUT 1080?

A must watch also is Poisoning Paradise, the doco made by the GrafBoys (banned from screening on NZ TV, yet a 4x international award winner). Their website is tv-wild.com. Their doco is a very comprehensive overview with the independent science to illustrate the question marks that remain over the use of this poison. There are links also on our 1080 resources page to most of the groups, pages, sites etc that will provide you with further information to make your own informed decision on this matter.

If you are pro poisoning of the environment, EnvirowatchRangitikei is not the place to espouse your opinions. Mainstream would be the place to air those. This is a venue for sharing the independent science you won’t of course find there.

We don’t endorse violence in our efforts to inform the public & hopefully persuade our government to desist from using  excessive amounts of poisons for pest control.

Environment Court orders halt to Auckland Council’s 1080 drop in Hunua Ranges

[NZ Herald] A trust opposing Auckland Council’s 1080 poison drop in the Hunua Ranges has won a court injunction temporarily suspending the operation.

The council had already begun covering the bush with non-toxic pre-drop pellets, to be followed up with 1080 within seven to 10 days, despite being aware of the application to the Court from the Friends of Sherwood Trust.

Judge Jeff Smith said the pre-feed drop had commenced just prior to a telephone conference.

“The Council proceeded with the drop in the knowledge of this application and therefore at its own peril in the event that the interim orders are granted for the long term.”

HEAR ALSO AN INTERVIEW BY RADIO NZ with LAWYER SUE GREY

https://www.radionz.co.nz/national/programmes/morningreport/audio/2018661838/anti-1080-lobbyists-halt-hunua-pest-control

 

The peaceful hikoi against 1080 is met with a 40-50 strong Police presence & a lawyer giving legal advice says she was assaulted

“A large group of anti-1080 protesters were partaking in a hikoi to Parliament when they were met with an “enormous police presence”, according to lawyer Sue Grey who was among those protesting.”

Sue said she was later assaulted whilst giving legal advice to arrestees.

“Ms Grey estimated there were between 40 and 50 police officers blocking the road from Onepoto Domain as the group were preparing to cross the Harbour Bridge.

“The whole thing just turned ugly in moments from the police conduct,” she said. “It was just unbelievable; it was like walking into a nightmare. They were extremely firm and in some cases physically assaulting people. It was a very frightening scene that I’ve never come across before.” ”  newshub.co.nz

Remember folk, your government (that is how a corporation & owns the factory that produces 1080) has allowed the rules to be changed to allow the dropping of 1080 into your waterways. I mention corporation because a corporation* cannot & does not  place the interests of you the people above those of the corporation.

“Up until 2017, regional councils issued resource consent certificates to government agencies and contractors that permitted 1080 poison bait to be spread across land and directly into water. However, in 2017, the New Zealand Government changed legislation, and that legislation now permits poison bait to be aerially spread across land and directly into water, without the requirement for a resource consent certificate – effectively excluding the aerial distribution of poison bait, from the protection of the Resource Management Act.” 
SOURCE:  https://www.tv-wild.com/hikoi

It was landing there anyway prior to this change (see here also), however it has now been made legal.

This should be concerning you.

The people on the hikoi have noted this change of tack & are saying in effect, ‘enough is enough’. We do not want our whenua, our land and our water, poisoned with impunity. Listen below here to more of that detail around why.


For further articles here on 1080, go to ‘categories’ (left of news page). Also, visit the 1080 pages for links to other independent info. In particular, see the page titled, ‘Suspected 1080 Poisoning Cases’. There is documented there the history of the Putaruru family who fell ill recently & the ensuing cover up on suspected 1080 poisoning following their hospitalization after consumption of wild pork. See also the case of the young hiker in the South Island who died & whose Doctor suspected 1080 poisoning. Her heart sent for testing, was lost by the authorities! Another cover up.

For on-the-ground coverage, see the many social media groups providing day by day updates, particularly the Hikoi of a Poisoned Nation, Operation Ban 1080, 1080 Eyewitness and No to 1080 Use in NZ groups on Facebook. There is a complete list of the many groups, resources, sites etc relating to 1080 at this link. Note: you will read the independent info & research at these links. It is somewhat different to the official mantra of the alleged safety of 1080 poison.

Published on Dec 3, 2013

This New Zealand film has won 4 international environmental awards – but here in NZ, TV channels refuse to play it. Why? Because if they did, there would be outrage and riots over New Zealand’s use of aerially applied 1080 poison. See for yourself …

*THE CORPORATION is a Canadian documentary film written by Joel Bakan, and directed by Mark Achbar and Jennifer Abbott. The documentary examines the modern-day corporation, considering its legal status as a class of person and evaluating its behavior towards society and the world at large as a psychiatrist might evaluate an ordinary person. This is explored through specific examples. Bakan wrote the book, The Corporation: The Pathological Pursuit of Profit and Power, during the filming of the documentary.

Auckland Council names 25 blocks with cladding cores like Grenfell Tower

We followed the Grenfell Tower disaster (crime) for a time & have revisited it again recently with the anniversary this month. Many of those people are still not rehoused from that shameful gentrification debacle. If you visit the blogs of the Grenfell Action Group you’ll see as is common with these corporate coverups, a long standing battle with landlords/Councils etc over the lack of safety & the fire risk in that tower before & immediately prior to the disaster. I believe also from many reports on the ground that the numbers of fatalaties were also vastly under stated. People were also advised (as is apparently customary) to remain in their apartments, thereby more fatalities occurred. What a crime. Human life – the shameful ‘throw away’ mentality of those who ride on the backs of the poor. The cladding was the cheaper option … it saved money & lost lives. As for NZ, remember the CTV building in the Christchurch earthquake? Nobody has been held accountable for the many lives lost in that building and should have been. And we have similar inflammable fire risk cladding on our buildings? No worries, they have got that all covered we’re told….


From the NZ Herald

Owners of the buildings have been told about the claddings but McCormick stressed the buildings were not necessarily dangerous to occupy because they had extensive fire protection measures such as sprinklers, alarms and escape routes.

Auckland Council has just released a list of 25 buildings with exterior aluminium composite claddings like the Grenfell Tower in London, where a fire last year killed more than 70 people.

But the council stressed the Auckland buildings with the flammable polyethylene cores in their claddings are not necessarily dangerous because they have other means of fire protection.

The huge Waitakere Stadium at Henderson, certain Auckland Hospital buildings in Grafton, Spark’s four-building campus in Victoria St, large residential blocks in the Viaduct and CBD, the huge PwC building on the city’s waterfront, TVNZ’s headquarters on Victoria St, Auckland University’s Owen Glenn Building and many apartment blocks appear on the list.

After a Herald official information request, the council named 116 buildings it said “appear to utilise ACP cladding to some extent”.

“In some cases the cladding material has a modified fire resistant core. Far fewer cases have cladding with a combustible polyethylene core,” said council building consents general manager Ian McCormick.

“The extent and use of ACP on the buildings varies considerably from the full facade, to decorative features only and many buildings examined did not contain ACP at all,” he said.

Owners of the buildings have been told about the claddings but McCormick stressed the buildings were not necessarily dangerous to occupy because they had extensive fire protection measures such as sprinklers, alarms and escape routes.
