Did you hear about the NZ businessman who challenged the privatization of New Zealand’s electricity infrastructure & is now in exile?

I found this initially on a blog called lawisanass-wingate.blogspot.co.nz  Unfortunately that blog is no longer online. It cited Kiwis First’s article below.

Not too long ago I posted here an article on the privatization ‘two step’ you could call it because it really is smoke and mirrors. The sale of your assets  by your govt/corporation Kiwis (same modus operandi in other countries) has to look like a good thing so as usual these characters pulling the strings, ‘sell’ it to you as such. On power we were told power would be cheaper. “Yeah right” as the Tui saying goes.  Throughout our recent history, there have been those who have challenged this new status quo and Simon Kaiwai’s been one of them. That  removal of your sovereignty is the real aim, is clearly demonstrated in the response Simon got from the powers that be, leading him finally to be deemed ‘mentally unfit’. Among other things.  This is a real eye opener.
You can find other videos and interviews about Simon on Youtube. In the meantime, read on.

From  Kiwis First on the sale of state owned assets to private companies, particularly as it panned out for a former CEO of a medical company who decided to challenge those sales. With dire consequences that clearly demonstrate the fascist and totalitarian direction your country appears to be headed in Kiwis. 

Simon Kaiwai, the former CEO of an international medical company and business consultant decided to challenge the privatization of New Zealand’s electricity infrastructure in 2009, prompted by power price rises well in excess of inflation, as well as private profiteering off public-owned assets. He had been particularly moved by the death of Folole Muliaga in 2007 resulting from her power being cut off despite the electricity company’s knowledge she was dependent upon a breathing apparatus and the family’s vain attempts to pay by installments.

Kaiwai says, “privatisation of public assets initially involves, placing ownership into two ministers’ personal names.” From there determination of which private company buys it and for how much becomes muddled. This process was something Kaiwai wanted to see ventilated in the public arena. Ultimately, Kaiwai wanted a jury to decide whether the sale of the electricity infrastructure to private corporations was 1) approved by a majority of the public owners and 2) fairly compensated for.

The selling of public assets has been a vexed one in New Zealand for years, with many infrastructure assets such as the railways being sold off at a bargain, only to be repurchased by the government in run down condition and on the verge of collapse years later. There was something in the challenge by Kaiwai that attracted a swift and heavy handed response – the physical demonstration of which attracted 16,000 hits in its first week on YouTube despite no mainstream media coverage in New Zealand.

It began in September 2009 when Mr Kaiwai demanded an “authenticated bill” from his electricity retailer Trustpower instead of their “remittance advice” statement of $146. This was legally significant to Kaiwai. He considered that if he could later prove the retailer was operating under an unlawful charter, the authenticated bill gave him legal recourse that the remittance advice statement did not. Trustpower failed to respond to the request, instead issuing a demand notice for $215.
To demonstrate his challenge was principled and not motivated by a personal desire to evade payment for power, Kaiwai paid $900, a good faith overpayment which would ensure supply to his home, where his expectant wife was due to give birth. Increasing demands for the authenticated bills brought threats by the retailer to turn off power, which escalated in threats by Kaiwai to trespass any Trustpower representatives.
In a matter of weeks from the initial dispute, electricians entered the property under Police escort to disconnect the family’s power.
After Trustpower refused to supply the family, the landlord opened an account with Contact Energy. However in a letter dated 7 January 2010 Contact Energy informed the Kaiwai family “Now that we more fully understand the history of the account, we are not willing to supply electricity…”.
It was 24 November 2009 when two Police constables and two Top Energy electricians broke through a locked gate, ignored the no trespass signs, intent to disconnect the electricity.
On seeing the Police Kaiwai grabbed his video camera and attempted to question the Top Energy workers. Police constables David Reynolds and Hayden Nicol responded to the filming by jumping on Kaiwai, pepper spraying and then beating him repeatedly.
While they were taking Mr Kaiwai away one of them admitted to the assault.

The 37 year old Mr Kaiwai had never before been charged or arrested. Nonetheless, District Court Judge De Ridder denied Simon bail after police opposed bail on the grounds Kaiwai had a “distorted view of society” which the police alleged posed a public threat. Mr Kaiwai’s response that he had received no legal representation was ignored by Judge De Ridder.
Consequently, Mr Kaiwai’s pregnant wife was left at home without electricity while her husband was held the maximum two weeks in prison under the Criminal Procedure Mentally Impaired Persons Act 2003.
Psychiatric evaluation by two specialists was required, in accordance with the Act, for which Kaiwai was transported to Auckland Central Remand Prison. Mr Kaiwai refused evaluation. Nevertheless, one of the psychiatrists was prepared to endorse the State’s position that Mr Kaiwai was mentally unfit, an opinion which, once concurred by another doctor, can legally imprison someone for up to five years in New Zealand without trial.
Mr Kaiwai did not learn his lesson from this narrow escape from the Mason Clinic. His protestations brought further attempts by the police to get a compulsory mental health order to commit him. He subsequently sought an “independent survey” of his “case study” from New Zealand psychiatrists. Unwittingly, Dr Justin Barry-Walsh, a distinguished psychiatrist in “medico-legal assessments” agreed there were significant ethical questions in the accepted approach to Mr Kaiwai’s psychiatric evaluation.
In the survey Dr Barry-Walsh disclosed between 21-40% of his business comes from court engagements.
It took more than a year and 20 court appearances for Mr Kaiwai to have the charges of ‘assault’ and ‘resist’ dismissed and, along the way, disprove the false accusations by the State regarding his mental health.

Kaiwai states I’ve been utterly shocked that by exposing a breach of the public trust by those in public service, I have become victim to what I believe is collusion between the electricity companies, the police, the courts and even the health system.”

Undeterred, Kaiwai exhorts, “Given the trend toward privatisation of public assets I believe it is essential we address this issue before more families endure such hardship.'”  Kaiwai himself seems less likely to personally lead this charge. Judge MacDonald, a former Police Prosecutor, blocked Mr Kaiwai’s private prosecutions against Top Energy, Trustpower and the Police.

This ordeal, and the increasing difficulty of getting a jury trial in New Zealand, has led the once proud Kiwi and his family to flee for the safety of… Chile. Despite the police and court attempts to label them insane and a menace to society, it is ironic that it is their victory against the State – and the retribution this typically engenders in New Zealand – that left them feeling unsafe living in their homeland. Though many in the community were supportive, the family was particularly struck by the widespread apathy to their ordeal and, perhaps more alarming, the vocal few who sought to silence their protestations.

And finally summing this up we have the late Barry Smith, a Kiwi evangelist and investigative author who was interviewed in the UK in 2000 by Revelation TV. (The video is on our front page). He in fact introduced this subject of privatisation earlier on in the ’90s, having traveled and shared on the topic of a one world government (aka global governance, new world order) since the early 1970s when I personally heard him myself. Bringing his family with him, they towed & lived in a caravan, and would conduct week long crusades in both small towns and cities, sharing the details of the plan. It is a plan which he said the planners believed only one in a million people would ever find out. He would say cheekily that he was that one. Ever grateful for his revelations on this plan which is foretold in Biblical scripture, it has been easier to digest what is happening now in our world. In effect most of what he said is coming to pass. See also our One World Govt / New World Order page.

Neuroscientist Olle Johansson PhD leading authority on the health effects of electromagnetic fields – info you won’t see on mainstream

OpenmindconferenceDK

Olle Johansson at the Open Mind Conference 2014, Copenhagen.

“Health effects of electromagnetic fields” Olle Johansson is associate professor at the Experimental Dermatology Unit, Department of Neuroscience, Karolinska Institute, Stockholm, Sweden.

He is a leading authority in the field of EMF radiation and health effects. He has also been a professor in basic and clinical neuroscience at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm.

He has published more than 650 original articles, reviews, book chapters and conference reports within the field of basic and applied neuroscience, dermatoscience and health effects of electromagnetic fields.

His studies have been widely recognised in the media, including newspapers, radio and TV, as well as on the Internet, both nationally and internationally. He has on-going international scientific collaborations with e.g. Japan, Brazil, South Africa, Serbia, Germany, the UK and the USA.

Olle Johansson’s presentation covers the historic background of electricity and electromagnetic fields, how suspicions arose early on concerning fields and signals producing negative health effects and how this led to today’s global public discussion about the subject. It will also touch upon the functional impairment electro hypersensitivity.

The lecture will go into depth about the scientific research results regarding the health effects of electromagnetic fields and the urgent need for independent research projects that need to be initiated to ensure our public health.

These projects should be entirely independent of all types of commercial interests as public health cannot have a price-tag. This is the responsibility of the democratically elected body of every country.

The body of evidence on EMF requires a new approach to protection of public health; the growth and development of the fetus, and of children; and argues for strong preventative actions. These conclusions are built upon prior scientific and public health reports documenting the following:

1) Low-intensity (non-thermal) bioeffects and adverse health effects are demonstrated at levels significantly below existing exposure standards.

2) ICNIRP and IEEE/FCC public safety limits are inadequate and obsolete with respect to prolonged, low-intensity exposures.

3) New, biologically-based public exposure standards are urgently needed to protect public health world-wide. 4) It is not in the public interest to wait.

THE SILENT WAR BEING WAGED ON OUR CHILDREN.







 


We now live in a wireless-saturated normality that has never existed in the history of the human race.  

We are experiencing 100,000,000 times more electromagnetic radiation than our grand parents.
Yes a hundred million!

The Entire Human Body Functions through Electricity.

When the energy pulses through the constant radioactivity from a Smart Meter, Cell Tower, Cell Phone and other wireless appliances it affects organs, cells, and more of the world’s population per capita as more Wi-Fi Technology is used.  The Data, Research and Proven Hazards are fully aware within government files however they will deny it.   They need the people to say “it’s not safe” before they change their ways, the governments doesn’t want to be held liable, for their lies.  Utility Companies are receiving millions in profits  & politicians are getting kickbacks.  Politicians cannot and will not change their ways without the people telling them to…

“Wireless radiation has been demonstrated in thousands of scientific studies to gravely endanger all living things”

Oct 2014 319
Cell phone masts are being placed increasingly closer to and even within residential areas

If you’ve ever asked yourself, why all the fuss abut wifi and other things related, you owe it to yourself and your loved ones to get to the bottom of the question.  Like many environmental topics today, we often start out with some incident, article or case history that grabs our attention. I was once one of those … busy with a job and family … too busy to pay attention until I fell ill. This is how many begin investigating our environment. My first journey of discovery was down the track of GE crops … then other things. I found in fact there are many issues that are impacting on our health. And electromagnetic frequencies (EMFs) is one of them.

Smart Meters are exposing us to the little known risks to our health

On the one hand however we have Pharmaceutical companies and the Medical fraternity telling us we need more time and money to research the causes of what is unarguably the biggest plague of our era … cancer … killing one in every three and in some places two on the planet. On the other hand we have independent scientists telling us we know the causes, let’s eliminate them. Quite frankly, we are in a war. A war for our minds. The thing is, right now, the information is available to us … it is out there if you care to look … with a mind that is open to truth. With increasing corporate control over that information however, our freedom to tap into it is under threat. If you care to research this topic, here is a website I discovered recently  that provides an excellent overview http://www.wi-cancer.info/dead_peasants.aspx

Our children are exposed daily to wifi in our school environments

Quote: “Wireless communications technology is violent technology.  It saturates the environment with extremely toxic, high-frequency RF/microwave radiation, designated by the World Health Organization as a Group 2B carcinogen…”

“Wireless radiation has been demonstrated in thousands of scientific studies to gravely endanger all living things: people, animals, plants and pollinating insects…”

“Numerous epidemiological studies reveal that people living and working within 1600 feet of RF/microwave antennas eventually suffer serious health problems…”

“…eight of the ten studies reported increased prevalence of adverse neurobehavioral symptoms or cancer in populations living at distances less than 500 meters from base stations….None of the studies reported exposures above accepted international guidelines, suggesting that current guidelines may be inadequate in protecting the health of human populations…”

“Unfortunately, everyone in the nation now lives, works and/or travels within 500 meters of Wi-antennas. In 1996, the Wi-radiation industry bought itself a federal law which prohibits US citizens from objecting, on the basis of environmental and health concerns, to the siting of RF/microwave antennas near inhabited buildings…”

” Cancer, diabetes, heart disease, chronic fatigue and dementia are epidemic across the nation. All of these conditions are documented to be induced and/or exacerbated by RF/microwave electromagnetic fields….”

A US Public Health Physician Speaks on Smart Meters

Genesis Smart Meter in an Auckland office
Genesis Smart Meter in an Auckland office

Whilst ignorance prevails on the dangers of Smart Meters (aka Advanced Meters) to our health, read what Public Health Physician David Carpenter has to say about them. An expert on magnetic fields, he has a wealth of knowledge and experience that qualifies him to make a sound judgement on safety issues and Smart Meters.

These meters are not compulsory although the public here in NZ (and elsewhere) are being given the impression that they are. Please educate yourself before consenting to the installation of one of these devices on or in your home. Visit the Smart Meter page here for links to other informative websites, and for Kiwis in particular … NZ’s stopsmartmeters website. In particular, watch the award winning documentary by Josh del Sol, ‘Take Back Your Power’. For Rangitikei folks, I have a copy you can borrow. Trailers are also on the Smart Meter page.

Here is a transcript of an interview with Dr Carpenter, video also included below:

David Carpenter: “I’m David Carpenter, I’m a Public Health Physician, I graduated from Harvard Medical School, and I worked for the New York State Dept of Health for 18 years, during that period of time I was responsible for administering a program in electromagnetic fields, I subsequently became the Dean of the School of Public Health and presently I’m a faculty member in the School of Public Health and the Director of the Institute of Health in the Environment of the University of Albany.

Interviewer: Thank you and Central Main Power says there is no reason to be concerned about smart meters, there are no health effects and everyone who is worried about the health effects of RF from smart meters or from the mesh network really have nothing to be concerned about and what do you say to that?

David Carpenter: I’d say that’s absolutely false. Ah, the question to ask them is ‘What is the evidence that smart meters are safe and have no adverse health effects?’ And the answer to that question is that there is no such evidence and in fact while no one has actually done human health studies in relation to people living in homes with smart meters we have evidence from a whole variety of other sources of RF exposure that demonstrates convincingly and consistently that exposure to RF radiation at elevated levels for long periods of time increases the risk of cancer, increases the damage to the nervous system, causes electrosensitivity, has adverse reproductive effects, and a variety of other effects on different organ systems, so there is no reason for, no justification for that statement that smart meters have no adverse health effects. Well it should be up to each individual to identify whether or not they want to be continuously exposed 24/7 to elevated levels of RF radiation. The Smart Meter is for the benefit of the utility, it saves them money because they don’t then have to have people going out reading meters and it’s at the expense of the consumer who has to live in the house that has the constant exposure. So an informed person should demand that they be allowed to keep their analogue meter.”

What your powerco isn’t telling you about your Smart aka Advanced Meter

 

Copy of Hamilton-Smart-Meter-1b
A typical Smart Meter used in NZ (photo supplied by stopsmartmeters NZ)

Smart or Advanced Meters as Kiwis know them, are being rolled out in NZ currently. Some are aware of the risks they pose to our health (heart problems, headaches, sinus problems & cancer) not to mention the escalated power bills that people are experiencing. I hear often of cases of severely inflated power bills since the installation of a Smart/Advanced Meter … and any proposal that it’s the meter is generally dismissed by the Powercos. Some of these are as extreme as double to triple the normal cost.
In my discussions with folk on these meters I find they think because there’s no tangible effect for them like physical symptoms it’s all safe. (For some though there are physical symptoms … this is covered on our Smart Meter page. It’s of note that many report disappearance of the symptoms after the Smart Meter removal). But even with no symptoms the radiation from electromagnetic devices is a slow-kill. Like food additives that are carcinogenic, so also the effects of radiation from these meters has a slow and cumulative long term effect. The Take Back Your Power documentary by Josh Del Sol illustrates the effects of radiation with a very disturbing story about a young man who died of brain cancer … he had been living in a hostel room near a cell phone mast at his university. So also had many other previous occupants his mother later found out. She is filmed there turning page after literal page reading out the names of others who had also died of cancer! Is it really worth the risk to just ignore this information & discard it as mumbo jumbo?

The following video ‘The Truth About Smart Meters’ by Brian Thiesen will enlighten you further about the risks posed by Smart/Advanced Meters.

The disturbingly aggressive roll out of Smart aka Advanced Meters – while children starve and the elderly freeze in rural Aotearoa (NZ)

Copy of 12112517_1015228948571453_8673820843448801831_n
A sign posted in Taumaranui NZ regarding the unsolicited installation of a Smart Meter

Here is a sign posted by a Taumaranui resident who had their locked meter box broken into to install a Smart Meter (aka Advanced Meter). As you can see the response they said they got from the lines people when following this up was equally as telling… “we own you people”! 

While it appears little known that there are options for having these meters removed and replaced, it also seems that Taumaranui has only one supplier. This makes things more difficult in terms of no bargaining power. The use of the term ‘jack boot’ is therefore not that extreme given the whole scenario and the way these folks have been treated. It is all symptomatic of the direction our country is headed with an ex-banker for a Prime Minister who clearly places profits and corporate interests above the interests of his constituents.

What is especially disturbing about this event (and it’s not an isolated incident, I’ve heard myself of installations happening while folk were not home) is that in the comments and discussion around this, many others have been similarly treated. The repeated tale of outrageous hikes in charges, one for instance from $100 to $150 approx. plus the Nelson woman last year who received a bill for $800 for her two bedroom house! And this is something I’ve both read about & heard, time and time again. We are fed the line that the meters are more accurate and customers have been undercharged prior to Smart Meter installation. Not to the tune of a $1000 hike? Surely? …  yet this is what I’ve heard more than once. A difference of $20 is feasible but not $600 or more. See here a proposed explanation for these hikes by a retired electrical engineer.

“…over 250 people have commented with some saying they had similar experiences with unexpectedly large power bills and problems after the installation of smart meters.”  Stuff.co.nz

Disturbing also is the detail about the elderly turning off their hot water in order to buy food or not turning on any heating because they can’t pay. Again I know of this happening in my district (the Rangitikei) where an elderly person is being charged $150 and upwards in a tiny flat with few if any appliances operating. She has switched off the hot water, has no heater and goes to bed early to keep warm. And finally, the above sign and the comments corroborate that folk are being pressured to leave the district because of the costs. ‘The town is dying’ says the sign.

Now,on that topic, we have been led to believe for years that towns are dying because people somehow mysteriously allowed it. They all moved away. We even had a prominent economist telling us recently that they were zombie towns and pretty much had to go. Well, people left because of decisions made by our respective governments to close down amenities and resources like the hospitals, pharmacies and banking. I know … I remember it happening! It was about the time those governments had borrowed large sums of money and gotten a once prosperous and fully employed nation into un-repayable debt, followed by Rogernomics and belt tightening for the poorer folks, not the wealthy mind. And the former being blamed for the debt while corporations enjoy huge tax breaks.  And now this from the power companies and we were told privatizing them would lower prices. Competition, the market and all that. We’re still waiting nearly three decades on. On that note, check out our (UN)  Agenda 21/2030 pages for why all this is happening. Particularly Agenda 21/2030 in NZ. Watch the video there by former Australian politician Anne Bressington.

As this sign very perceptively outlines folk, we are being ripped off and our southern clean, green paradise is fast morphing into a fascist regime. Think, TPPA and all that has entailed in terms of keeping us out of the loop then claiming to seek our feedback/opinion/input.  Their tactics provide the illusion of having sought our opinion … it is nothing more folks, in case you hadn’t already noticed. See how they provide you with forms containing multi choice options none of which you wanted to choose anyway? Like the recently proposed flag debacle that has cost the country $28 million. Shame.

Returning now to the Smart Meters themselves, be aware, they are NOT compulsory. If you already have one, there are options about its removal and replacement. (If you don’t have one yet, inform your powerco you do not consent to one … in writing … in advance). For further information on that Kiwis, visit stopsmartmeters.org.nz/ and note they have a page there explaining how to get rid of a Smart Meter. The meters are also known here as Advanced Meters. (Folks from other countries, there are similar sites in your countries, just google.)

You should also be aware that health professionals have warned about the health risks these meters carry. Predictably the authorities deny this, however the stopsmartmeters website has already logged before and after testimonies from Kiwis who had their Smart Meters removed. See also the links here for further information on that, with a video trailer featuring a health professional explaining the effects from long term exposure to a Smart Meter. See also in this video what the meters when in proximity do to your blood.  Above all, educate yourself further by watching the award winning doco Take Back Your Power by Josh Del Sol at his website. It is accessible for a very small charge. Or consider holding a viewing in your town (contact stopsmartmeters for details). Further info on Smart Meters is also available on our Smart Meter pages. Spread the word and resist this move.

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!
