New Zealand’s national debt equates to $24,000 for every man, woman and child

From seemorerocks.is

But that figure excludes PRIVATE debt

Recent news, such as this, that I will discuss elsewhere, has caused me to think once again about NZ’s debt levels.

Public servants’ pay is being frozen for three years, but not the rates the sector pays to thousands of contractors and consultants

Articles about New Zealand’s debt are like hen’s teeth (about half a dozen articles over about ten) years about this came out at the end of January this year.

The message (just as it was under John Key – “nothing to worry about”!).

It’s reported there’s been no consultation for an aerial 1080 poison operation over Mt Pirongia, contravening NZ’s Treaty of Waitangi Act

Facebook page Ecocide Awareness NZ reports on a 1080 aerial poison drop over Mt Pirongia. This is the second report around consultation (or not) by the authorities recently. EWR

“The dirty deed is done. The poison contractors to NZ Dept of Conservation and Waikato Regional Council – Helia1 and EcoFX Ltd leave the scene of the crime, with a police escort. There was NO consultation for this aerial 1080 poison operation over Mt Pirongia and NO consent from at least 13 of the local marae and Maori tribal groups around the maunga. New Zealand laws have been broken, not least the Treaty of Waitangi Act, which these poisoning agencies try to claim they respect. What an insult to the citizens of New Zealand.”

Re unlawful acts of the Crown regarding 1080 poison: A NZ lawyer with multiple science degrees is expert witness at the Intl Tribunal for Natural Justice

Lawyer, Sue Grey testifies to a number of unlawful acts of the crown and its contractors who have been aerially spreading deadly poison, called 1080, on DOC land, Maori Land and private land. Sue and her team has identified over 10 possible legal challenges involving apparent criminal or civil breaches of statutory obligations by DoC, OSPRI and/or poison contractors. Sue Grey testified on June 23, 2019 before the ITNJ Commission of Inquiry into Weaponisation of the Biosphere.

“Sue Grey Testimony on New Zealand’s Ecocide with the use of 1080 Poison

The ITNJ opens its Commission of Inquiry into the Weaponisation of the Biosphere with stunning testimony from New Zealand expert witness Sue Grey, in what she describes as ‘ecocide’ and ‘a war on nature’.

A lawyer and activist with multiple science degrees and over 30 years’ experience in environmental health policy, Sue testifies to the devastation being caused to New Zealand’s native wildlife and ecosystems through the systematic and widespread aerial poisoning with the chemical Sodium Fluoroacetate, commonly known as “1080” Poison.

Four hundred million 1080 pellets (enough to kill over a hundred million people) will be spread by helicopter this year over much of the country’s land and waterways, in a longstanding Crown sponsored program, its stated purpose: to preserve native wildlife by eradicating non-native stoats and rats. However, the cereal baits attract many other species of insects, birds, and mammals, contaminating the food chain and cruelly killing thousands of “non-target” species including deer, farmed stock and dogs. There has been a drastic impact on Kea (native parrots) and cereal baits are known to poison many other species of native bird including iconic Kiwi and Weka.

Birds and animals can be poisoned by eating the bait directly, drinking from poisoned waterways, or by feeding on the carcasses of poisoned animals. Evidence also exists that 1080 has made it its way up the food chain into wild pork, farmed cows and honey, and is also suspected to have poisoned humans, many of whom Grey has represented.

Despite many years of campaigning, lawsuits, public outcry, and official statistics that prove its catastrophic failure, the New Zealand government refuses to take responsibility and bring an end to the serious threats posed by this program to New Zealand’s ecosystem and its inhabitants.

ABOUT THE ITNJ: The ITNJ is the world’s first people-powered tribunal that operates independently of governments and corporations, and is therefore willing to issue rulings against those organizations based on Natural Law, where agents of governments and/or corporations have caused harm or loss to living men and women, and in this case, matters that relate to the weaponization of our biosphere and the existential ecocide and genocidal threat against humanity.

In 1992, a NZ farmer who had not consented to a 1080 drop on his farm, lost 70 deer after a helicopter bucket ‘malfunctioned’ it was claimed

In addition this farmer found a large quantity of baits in the waterways!

From Dr Meriel Watts

“In 1992 a NZ farm lost 70 deer when an amount of 1080, claimed by contractors to be 10 kilos but calculated by the farmer to have been 71 kilos, was lost over the farm when the helicopter bucket ‘malfunctioned’. The contractor claimed this to be an accident, but the farmer counter-claimed harassment because he would not consent to a 1080 drop on his farm. The carrot bait was spread over an area 100m wide by 12-1400m long. Carrots are the usual winter feed for the deer. Of the remaining 48 hinds only two bred  the following season (there is evidence from laboratory experiments that 1080 can affect animals’ breeding cycles). The farmer maintains the conditions of the permit to drop the 1080 in the area near the farm were broken in a number of other ways apart from dropping the carrots on the wrong property:

  • the wrong bait was used (it should have been pollard)
  • proper pest destruction notices were not served
  • hunting licences were not cancelled
  • an uncovered bucket was used on the helicopter which resulted in carrots spilling out during flight, prior to the accident over the farm
  • the specified supervisor was not present
  • a large amount of bait was retrieved from waterways despite the requirement to stay away from them. “

Private investors to make a killing From Auckland Transport Projects

A must watch on this topic is Joan Veon’s ‘Public Private Partnerships’:
PUBLIC PRIVATE PARTNERSHIPS ARE AN ARM OF THE WORLD’S GROWING CORPORATOCRACY & THEIR BOTTOM LINE IS TO TAKE CONTROL OF THE ASSETS OF GOVERNMENT … JOAN VEON


 

From democrats.org.nz

Labour buddies Phil Twyford and Phil Goff have unleashed a stampede of financial pariahs who will be jostling for a share of the profits from financing the $28 billion in Auckland transport projects they jointly announced on Thursday.

Despite having promised before the election to stop the Public Private Partnership schemes of the previous National government, this latest announcement goes even further down the road of privatising new assets.

The new transport projects will be financed by combination of PPPs and Crown Investment Partners, a government owned PPP scheme in disguise, “which is all about introducing outside capital and attract[ing] co-investment from the private or other sectors”.

Labour used to be the party for the workers but it has just proved it really has turned into a party that shovels taxpayer money into the pockets of the rich, the overseas banks, and the international money shufflers. 

Their big profits will be coming straight out of taxpayer’s pockets, who will effectively rent the new transport facilities, having to pay for the construction of the projects and a premium for the lender’s profits.
