As I wrote this, I heard from the Kapiti region that two people have recently been visited by NZ law enforcement personnel in bullet proof vests carrying guns and wanting names of ‘right wing extremists’ they knew. The following article is from NaturalNews.com which hails as some will know, from the US. News about the event in Christchurch on March 15th is now of course global with much discussion & dissection (& censorship) going on regarding the whys and wherefores. The result of it all has been a change to the gun laws in this country. Interesting isn’t it that NZ spends $100 million a year on the five eyes spy program to protect its citizens. It doesn’t appear to be working does it? Indeed it’s been environmentalists who’ve been spied on instead. People who just want clean non poisoned waterways, clean food sources, free from contamination by toxic substances … conservation of all resources. It’s they who have been treated like criminals. All the while a real criminal has flown right under their radar. While they twiddle their thumbs? Seems like it. And submissions from the public on the proposed gun control were heard this week gone over a two day period. Looks kind of done & dusted really. And DoC’s now set to poison the South Island again & environmentalists are still the criminals. EWR
(Natural News) If you want to know what tyranny looks like in a “democracy,” turn your gaze towards New Zealand, where liberal tolerance and acceptance has been replaced by anti-gun zealotry and authoritarianism, thanks to a single act of violence by a man who wasn’t even born on the island.
Following Brenton Tarrant’s terrorist attack on a pair of mosques earlier this month, the New Zealand prime minister, Jacinda Ardern, and her government wasted no time in declaring that an entire class of firearms that were previously legal to own were suddenly illegal to own.
“Assault” weapons of the type used by Tarrant during his attack have no place in a civil society, you see, even if 99.999 percent of them are owned by law-abiding people and used responsibly.
As such, they must all be confiscated because getting rid of them will also stop future acts of violence and terrorism. Or so New Zealanders have been told.
But what if the act of getting rid of these guns actually causes more violence and death?
The Truth About Gunsis reporting that, according to the country’s biggest firearms forum, Kiwi cops are now going door-to-door to gun owners’ places of business, their homes, and even gun ranges “in an attempt to gather information and get gun owners to relinquish their firearms.”
According to screenshots of the firearms forum, one gun owner is already dead.
One poster noted:
Got suggested I pop this up but whilst at work this morning, I hear a voice ask for me by name. I turn around and there’s 2 police officers.
Needless to say workmates were shocked too [sic] see me taken into a room for a chat and these guys were quite nice about it but wanted to know what [guns] my partner and I have.
Police were tipped off
The poster went on to note that a gun safe in their residence was “installed and floor plated as per the recommendations (So stored legally in an odd stock of luck),” and that they hadn’t used any of their guns because they’re “not allowed” at the moment.
“I didn’t put any paperwork or forms in yet so was a little shocked to see [the police] come out of nowhere. Anyone else get this yet?” the poster noted.
– “…The significance of the drill is important due to the fact that most terror attacks in recent history have coincided with drills very similar to the actual terrorism that unfolds…during the tragic attacks on Paris, it was later reported that Paris-area emergency personnel and ambulance crews were taking part in a simulated emergency exercise on the very same day – the drill was a simulated mass shooting attack. During the 9/11 attacks NORAD was in the midst of a training exercise called Vigilant Guardian, which “coincidentally” simulated planes being hijacked by terrorists”
NZ Police “Happened to Be in a Training Session” When Mosque Shooting Began – By Matt Agorist
It took police officers in New Zealand 36 minutes to catch the terrorist who murdered 50 people in two Christchurch mosques last week. Dramatic footage shows that just two officers—only one of whom had a gun—apprehend the…
“Government’s response to the shooting is raising even more red flags than the shooting itself” (NaturalNews.com)
The nworeport.me site comments “There’s a raging battle going on to scrub all video footage of the New Zealand mass shooting from the web, and leading the charge are the usual social media suspects: Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, and the like. But why, exactly, don’t these platforms want people to see the actual evidence of what supposedly occurred down under at the two Muslim mosques where 49 worshipers are said to have been murdered in cold blood?
It would seem as though mainstream media outlets want the public to simply believe some written narrative without being allowed to actually see and interpret, with their own eyes, the event itself as it allegedly took place – the apparent intent being to control what the public believes, regardless of whether or not it’s true.
According to CNN Business, as relayed by Zero Hedge, Big Tech is currently engaged in a “struggle to deal with (the) New Zealand shooting video.” What this language actually means is that the major media platforms really don’t want people to see the video in question, and are actively trying to suppress the truth about what really took place behind all the media propaganda. ”
Further comment is made:
“In the above video footage [at the link which note can’t be seen in NZ anyway] which we were able to archive on Brighteon servers to prevent it from being scrubbed, you’ll notice that the first-person shooter angle more closely resembles a video game, as opposed to a real-life shooting. In one scene, you can even see bodies of the victims piled up before the shooter even fires his weapon.
Perhaps this is the reason why the mainstream media is trying to censor the footage – because it blows some major holes in the official narrative.” Read more at this link.
“The live stream video of the shootings in Christchurch has been classified by the Chief Censor’s Office as objectionable,” reports Radio NZ. “Police said anyone in possession of the video of the shootings, or found to be distributing it, could face imprisonment.”
This means, essentially, that linking to content the government doesn’t like is now a crime in New Zealand…
Government’s response to the shooting is raising even more red flags than the shooting itself”.
I personally viewed the footage spoken of when it first appeared albeit briefly on social media before it was taken down. I can certainly affirm that what is said there is true. Another viewer who watched it several times (cited below) describes accurately the many more anomalies also present. (The two videoed interviews in a previous post also describe these same issues in great detail).
The streets were empty of people, apart from the two guys walking by and the guy in black trousers and a white shirt who directed him to go right at the bottom of the drive..
The shooter had three guns in the passenger well and three in the boot… why didn’t he use the ones in the front passenger well?
Where did the passenger go?
There were two Muslims ‘outside’ the mosque, and one (woman in black) doing something in the back of a lemon/green car in the carpark… but they were left alive? He began ‘shooting’ at people inside the mosque at 1.30.
Friday prayers are 12 noon and last one hour, so the mosque should have been empty, because the men had to get back to work.
Also Muslim men normally wear white or their best clothes for Friday prayers, but many of the victims appear to be wearing work clothes. It is tradition to keep the mosque spotless and not bring any dirt from outside. Hence they remove shoes and wash before prayers..
It is fard (obligatory duty) for men to attend Friday prayers, but not for a ‘slave’ a woman child or a sick person. And they use their own prayer mats.. but there were NONE in this video.
He shot two men going in to the mosque one of whom was wearing shoes and they fell INTO the mosque, but there was only one man wearing a blue sweater and shoes as he passed him. The other one crawled up the passage and was shot. But there was no blood and no bullet wounds…And despite one man being shot point blank in the face, his head did not explode or bleed. Then when the shooter came out first time, one man who had originally crawled up the passage was now facing out, right arm behind his back left arm up, and the guy in the blue jumper had been moved to one side and still no blood.
The shooter then goes into the road and begins shooting at nothing, up and then down the road. Cars passing by but it appears didn’t think to ring the Police? Goes back to the car where he left the boot open for any passer by to see the guns inside? Throws the used gun on the ground and picks up an identical gun from the boot and picks up what looks like a red petrol cannister.. Surely he could just have had a pocket full of magazines to replace as one was used?
9.52 someone still doing something in the back of the lemon/green car? Continues on past the car park to another drive where cars are parked but no people and shoots indiscriminately. No holes in anything.. Says ”It doesn’t look like it’s a bird today boys.” Goes back into the mosque where blood is now pouring from the two in the foyer of the mosque. Goes into the prayer room and begins shooting at the already ‘dead’ bodies, only three/four of whom are bleeding? When it should have been one massive pool of blood. He then goes to the ‘dead’ bodies in the left corner and shoots them all again, point blank but no holes or blood?’ Then leaves the mosque where the body facing out has changed position and now has both arms up as if he’s been lying on them. Shooter then begins shooting at someone fleeing in the garden , which then turns out to be a woman, who is laid at the bottom of the drive where his car is, calling ”help me”, so he shoots her twice and then three more times, this looks genuine.. He gets into the car and then appears to drive over her, but the car doesn’t jolt like it would over an obstacle. He looks through his mirror and adjusts his sat nav and says to the guy in the back, ”that girl’s dead” and scoffs.
Driving down the road and shoots his gun three times point blank in to the wind screen but doesn’t break the glass?? then shoots the side window, which does?
Chats to guy in the back ”Still time for the fuel” ”I left a magazine back there in the fire fight???” ;;shit happens.” Police sirens sound, but here is no acknowledgement from either men in the car. Shooter says. ”They were all scared, I got the men first because the women weren’t in yet”
”Remember lads, it’s subscribe to beautify.”
I know why this video is being hidden… It does not stand up to fine scrutiny.
From the very start, It did not ring true and felt like it was being filmed as part of a video game….
And the prestitute media rhetoric IMO is designed to create fear.
– There was another shooting outside Christchurch Hospital and multiple bombs were attached to two cars belonging to the suspects near the mosque. – The explosives were quickly disarmed. The Gunman’s rampage began when he got into his car wearing military style body armour and a helmet saying ‘let’s get this party started’.
He then drove to the mosque listening to folk music and military tunes before parking in an alley around the corner.-
How in God’s name does anyone know this unless they were there.. or they wrote the scene?????
Video of police arresting the New Zealand shooter who had multiple guns??
Please note, saying that this is a false flag event, is not implying there were no deaths, as the interviews explain. What is being said is that the video shown to the public is likely not a real & true record of how it played out (we are led to believe it is head cam footage) … ie not the real footage of events, rather a mixture of real plus possibly rehearsal or other footage. To understand this a must watch are the two interviews with Ole Dammegard (researcher, author & international speaker) who has examined similar events for 36 years now, predicting and even stopping some.
And just who are the ‘fact checking crew’? Parading as humanitarian, the real face of who is checking the ‘facts’ won’t be surprising to some of us. You know, those same old names that pop up everywhere there is cause for concern. Names like Bill & Melinda Gates, Google, George Soros, Rupert Murdoch, FB & many more. Their far reaching tentacles are everywhere on the planet. read more
Our deep condolences to the victims of the recent shootings in Christchurch. We intend no disrespect to them in wanting to examine this issue. We simply wish to help folk make sense of what has happened. Understandably many are afraid & the excellent research & clear head of Ole brings some sanity into the situation.
In the two videos below, interviews by both Lambremont Webre & NZ’s Vinny Eastwood, Ole Dammegard describes how he has managed to predict 15 massacres over a period of four years. He is also believed to have managed to expose and stop several planned massacres. From his site: “Truth Seeker, Code Breaker and Peacemaker Ole Dammegard, awarded the Prague Peace Prize, and adopted by the Apache Nation, is an author, International speaker, former journalist, musician, artist and investigator, who has dedicated the last 35 years to researching many of the global conspiracies. “ You can read more about Ole’s work at the link.
Please read the info below each video at Youtube for links to relevant sites and further information (click on the YT icon bottom right of screen). One interview was taken down by YT overnight before it could be posted, as also was Vinny Eastwood’s original live interview midstream. Fortunately I’ve been able to embed that here from Facebook. You can view further of Vinny’s videos at YT.
NOTE: Unfortunately regarding the second interview by Vinny Eastwood, it has been removed from Youtube. As also was the replacement video I put here. As censorship of this event grows you need to be asking yourself why? Do research it for yourself.
So, last weekend came the revelation that DoC hired a firm to spy on certain environmentalists like the Marlborough deerstalkers, Stop Poisoning Coromandel Peninsula, Brook Valley Community group, the Stop 1080 Now Facebook group and the Rangitikei Environmental Health Watch. See the article:
Note the ‘anti’ word? It’s all about repackaging us. They want you to believe we are extremists, terrorists even & they promulgate this by their clever use of terminology. No mention of the more accurate title: ‘environmentalists’. All we want is a clean environment, clean water particularly & an assurance that our health is not being compromised. Not a priority for corporates of course and we are flies in the ointment of ‘progress’ in the form of corporate profiteering interests Predator Free 2050.
If nothing else this all illustrates the surveillance that is going on and the capability of FB & social media generally. We surely all know by now the internet is a handy information gathering tool. We’re in the public arena. The ridiculous thing is, EnvirowatchRangitikei’s information is all public (as are many of the FB pages & sites they’ve trolled for info) nothing secret squirrel about it. Could have accessed it for free. Still, they have the mission of pursuing those dubious and murky claims of threatened violence. Please do read the following on that one:
Do you see mainstream media calling them out on those facts? Of course not & you won’t be any time soon.
Below is the video from the RadioNZ article, which also contains the pdf file with all the conversations had by the security firm… if you can be bothered trawling through it. These are the depths to which a country once considered Godzone has fallen in the post Roger Douglas frenzy for profits.
With the ranks of those who oppose the aerial spreading of 1080 swelling exponentially, you may well be asking, why are folk so concerned about this poison? (Note, If you are new to 1080 poison read here for an overview). I’ve been following this issue for at least three years now & this widespread aerial distribution of 1080 into NZ’s environment for pest control is the issue that gets by far the most views and shares at EnvirowatchRangitikei. The article by Jenese James on the GrafBoys’ press release on 89 (dead & not tested) Kiwi has had 54K shares to date on facebook. Folk are outraged at what is coming to light and rightly so. I personally began researching the independent information about 1080 after watching the documentary by the GrafBoys called Poisoning Paradise.These two Kiwi guys were raised in the bush, they know their stuff. Their doco has won four international awards (see here also) and yet … get this … NZ television will not play it here in our own country. They are assuming that we cannot listen & judge for ourselves? Does that not raise alarm bells for you? It should. That doco was the starting point that left me with enough question marks around the official line, to prompt me to look further than DoC’s own research. That is literal too, for the research DoC uses to justify the alleged safety of aerial distribution of 1080 in NZ is 70% in-house, writes Reihana Robinson in her book The Killing Nation.
So what is coming to light then? Does NZ’s Department of Conservation (DoC) not have our best interests at heart? The best interests of our native flora & fauna? Don’t they have all the right checks & balances in place? Do they not have a body of scientific data & research (including follow up data) justifying the use of this poison, that has been banned incidentally by most other countries on the planet? Well, as it turns out, no they don’t appear to have a sound, watertight body of scientific data that actually proves 1080 is both safe & achieving (after 60+ years) what it set out to do.
“… there is not a single scientifically credible study showing that aerial 1080 when used on the mainland is of net benefit to any species of New Zealand’s native fauna. Thus the upside for native species is entirely unproven, despite 15 years of increasingly desperate attempts by DoC to show one.” … Pat and Quinn Whiting-OKeefe, Scientists
In light of this, people are understandably worried about their food sources. If it’s touted as being ‘safe’, safe in our food, safe in water and so on, yet the science has any kind of question mark over it, then logically, folk will be concerned. I certainly am. The authorities should be practicing the precautionary principle:
“The precautionary principle is the concept that establishes it is better to avoid or mitigate an action or policy that has the plausible potential, based on scientific analysis, to result in major or irreversible negative consequences to the environment or public even if the consequences of that activity are not conclusively known, with the burden of proof that it is not harmful falling on those proposing the action. It is a major principle of international environmental law and is extended to other areas and jurisdictions as well.” (New World Encylopedia)
NZers are keen hunters and fishers. Wild food (pigs and deer, fish & eels from the rivers, koura from the streams, whitebait and so on) are a staple for many. This is their families’ kai (food). The rivers and bush or forests are their food cupboard. And now they are seeing that source becoming a safety risk because a toxic poison is being dumped into it and has been for 60+ years. In spite of verbiage telling us it’s harmless as a cup of tea or a packet of crisps (potato chips) (the oft quoted justifications on blogs by pro 1080 folk).
So not only is there concern about contamination of hunted animals, but contamination of the flora as well.
Not only is 1080 highly toxic to mammals, birds and insects- one scientist has even discovered that it is toxic to plants and so forests do not do so well after 1080 drops. (interview with Clyde Graf) ourplanet.org
Take for instance the recent poisoning of the family in Putaruru in the Waikato. This family, after beginning a meal of wild pork, fell instantly ill and had to be rushed to hospital by ambulance. The scenario that followed is revealing indeed regarding the apparent cover up that is going on with regard to testing possible victims of 1080 poisoning. A Doctor suspected 1080 as the source of the problem early in the piece as records showed when they were finally released after some of the usual foot dragging that seems to be characteristic of any request by the public for official documentation around possible 1080 poisoning. The familycould not even access their own records! Not only did the hospital fail to test for 1080 within the required time frame, the fact that the patients were literally tied to their beds because of the violent convulsions characteristic of 1080 poisoning, was never mentioned in the media.
The ongoing mantra from mainstream media on this was ‘botulism’.
You can read about this whole shocking debacle at the 1080 page, ‘Suspected 1080 Poisoning Cases’. Please read the evidence there if you at all hunt or fish for food. And if you are a tourist, it is better in my opinion, not to drink from the streams as many have been observed doing. Observers have described how tourists are sometimes not even aware of the purpose of 1080 drops going on right over their heads. So much for public warnings.
Invariably what I am seeing in the reports, articles and general chat by eye witnesses is that the toxicity of 1080 is totally downplayed. It is even being taught in children’s school texts that 1080 is ‘not very dangerous’ to humans. This is a substance that is banned in most countries. That kills all breathing organisms from insect life to worms, right up to larger animals such as horses. And yet we are supposed to believe it specifically targets pests? How ever is that possible? Another miracle from NZ’s Department of Conservation? Read Dr Meriel Watts’ exposé of that theory.
Then we heard this year from research by the Graf Brothers that the authorities have changed the rules to allow the dropping of 1080 into our waterways without a Regional Council consent. They can now effectively bypass the pesky Resource Management Act. And dropping it they are. Prior to this, it was ending up in waterways anyway as witnesses have shown with their many photographs posted online. The late Bill Benfield’s research revealed that a drop in the Hunua Ranges, home of Auckland’s town water supply, saw the water filters filled with 1080 pellets! Seriously. In addition, there is NO antidote! It is undetectable as the cause of death if tests are not done early enough.
To date there are no known epidemiological studies that have been carried out in relation to 1080 and potential adverse health effects on humans. … NZ Ministry of Health 2008
Then there is the risk to outdoors people who simply walk or hike. Over the past three years I’ve seen various reports of folk out picnicking, out tramping or simply enjoying the scenery, rained down on by 1080 pellets.
Two women fell ill after this kind of scenario while innocently out for a picnic. Nobody will of course admit to any link between their illness & exposure to 1080. The most upsetting of all the examples of this has been that of the young US woman who died following a tramp in the Queenstown area. Her Doctor suspected 1080 poisoning & tried to bring about an investigation into that. Her heart was sent for testing as to the cause of her cardiac rest and unbelievably the NZ lab lost her heart. Seriously. They lost her heart! Dr Charlie Baycroft a retired MD, recently warned the public that if anybody dies from 1080 poison nobody will know. He was threatened with prosecution by the Ministry of Health for publicly advising folk how to go about getting tested if they feared poisoning.
Are you beginning to feel uneasy at all about our wild food sources?
I read a comment just the other day by a woman who has stopped taking her children to a recreational/scenic area where she’s noticed signs up saying it’s been treated with 1080. I spoke recently with a university lecturer on the poisoning program, he has noticed a proliferation of poison signs when he goes into the bush. This is a common comment from tourists and locals. Poisoning signs everywhere. There are 65 dogs die each year from 1080 poisoning a NZ site called Pause for a Cause reports. Then there are the ongoing and endless reports of farmers whose stock have succumbed to death by 1080. Dr Meriel Watts in her book ‘The Poisoning of New Zealand’ (1994) of a South Island farmer who lost 570 sheep in a bungled drop, with sheep still dying six months later. To make things even worse, they die a long slow horrific death that, says a veterinarian, is like two days worth of electrocution. The NZ authorities changed the animal welfare act to allow this. To top it off, adding insult to injury, they are forced to lie about this in the paperwork should they desire compensation for their losses. Hobson’s choice.
Then there was the Whitianga debacle. The attendance by one concerned man at the scene of the unloading of 1080 in the CBD of Whitianga with no public warnings or signage out as legally required, a man who was subsequently assaulted by a security guard, was himself charged with assault, the case eventually dismissed but leaving him with more than $22K in court costs. If you were at all conspiratorial you might think a clear message was being sent to the public. You can read about that at these links. Then in Levin a Horizons storage facility where 1080 was stored caught fire, with apparently no public warnings in place. I observed myself, comments on social media by a man who had noticed symptoms of illness following that fire. He lived in the vicinity. His conversation around the effects cut abruptly short I noticed.
More recently we’ve had revelations on lack of safety with 1080, by an ex employee of Horizons. Diluted solutions of 1080 were sprayed all over the Palmerston North landfill by a contractor surprised that he was allowed to do this. What of the leachate from that dump? What of public in the vicinity of the spraying? What of the earth it was sprayed onto? Of nearby water sources/streams/ditches and so forth?
ERMA’s Agency warned that “No studies have been conducted using standard international guidelines to assess the route and rate of degradation of 1080 in soil. The rate of such degradation under New Zealand conditions is uncertain.”And regarding water: ”Overall, the relevance of the aquatic plant/water studies to the degradation of 1080 in water in NZ is not clear.” … Dr Jo Pollard (BSc (Hons, PhD)
And yes there is more that folk are concerned about.
The birds. Frequently we are reading comments by people who note there is no birdsong … no birds in the bush. Folk who have lived long enough to remember how things used to be, like an 82 year old gentleman recently who said the Kiwi, Kereru, Kea, Weka & Tui had all disappeared from where he lived on the West Coast. Reports also come from people who aren’t even anti 1080 or even aware of these drops. Tourists. One I read commented that since their last trip to NZ in the ’70s the birds were noticeably scarce. The GrafBoys & others have posted videos online following 1080 drops & illustrated the lack of birdsong. Listen below.
Below a blogger comments about Lake Matheson in the South Island:
Lake Matheson, near Fox Glacier township, South Westland. When I lived there many years ago (Fox Glacier I mean) there was so much birdlife. The day I took that photo there was nothing. You can see what a beautiful morning it was. There was a pair of Paradise ducks on the lake, I saw one male Tomtit, and I heard one Grey Warbler. In one hour of walking round the lake that was all the birdsong I heard. A real “Rachel Carson” moment ! PS That area is also overrrun with tourists and campervans now too.
No … people who oppose the use of aerial 1080 are not terrorists as mainstream media is doing their utmost to portray them as. They simply do not want their food sources & their environment poisoned. I think that is a fair request.We are constantly told that 1080 is the best tool in the tool box, yet there are alternatives & the most glaringly obvious is trapping with all of it’s obvious benefits. Employment, trade & food. But no, DoC don’t want a bar of it.
It seems pertinent at this point to highlight one of the apparent major incentives for the continuation of 1080 drops, as a former Mayor of Taupo expounded:
Orillion, the company in Whanganui that makes 1080 baits is a State Owned Enterprise, its two share holders are the Minister of Finance & the Minister of Primary Industry. (Info at 2.40 in this video).
People need to look beyond the diversions mainstream is constantly throwing out … were the dead birds on Parliament steps killed by 1080 or blunt force? Seriously? What does it matter?
These are questions however that mainstream media quietly & persistently ignore. It is fairly obvious who they are working for & their current mandate is clearly painting any persons who are against poisoned food & environments as dangerous terrorists.
And we are never of course going to hear answers to those questions … figuring them out for ourselves really isn’t rocket science though is it?
NOTE: For further articles on 1080 use categories at left of the news page.
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.
Finally we don’t endorse violence in any way shape or form.

Remember the cover up with the Putaruru family who were admitted to Waikato Hospital after eating Wild Boar? The Doctor’s notes indicated suspected 1080 poisoning from the get go, but nobody tested, not till a long time afterwards. The Doctor’s recommendations were ignored. We kept hearing it was Botulism. Remember the healthy young 23 year old hiker in the South Island who died suddenly after hiking and whose Doctor suspected the same? Recommended & sent her heart for testing only to find the Lab conveniently (?) lost it? Remember the retired doctor who recently told us Doctors are bullied by the MOH not to test for 1080 poisoning. Remember how he was threatened with prosecution after advising the public via mainstream media how to test before & after a 1080 drop?
This information below is from the ‘NO to 1080 use in NZ’ facebook page.
In 1951, Prof. Peters, a biochemist at Oxford University, England, explained his theory of ‘lethal synthesis’ which included studies with cows and sheep on the effects of Fluoroacetic Acid (the chemical upon which 1080 poison is based) in the journal Science News Letter (7 July, page 3)
He joked: “if anyone was contemplating using fluoroacetic to poison his mother-in-law, he had better pick a Saturday to do it. [because] By the time the coroner’s office opened on Monday the citric acid evidence would be gone.”
Less than 5 years after this publication, aerial 1080 poison operations began. Why is New Zealand’s Dept of Conservation still in denial about the complexities of these tests, 67 years later? Where are the public health studies?
Remember the NZ Government has changed the rules so that 1080 poison, a Class 1A Ecotoxin, can be dropped directly into our waterways, without a consent from regional councils. They assure us it is perfectly safe and breaks down in water. And yet, here we see historically it was added to water to poison rats. How ‘scientific’ is that? We have two conservation academics with multiple degrees to their names, one considered the ‘founder of modern pest management in NZ’, discussing their concerns at the science used by DoC to back their Predator Free 2050 program. They say it “has not been well informed by scientific knowledge or conservation best practice”. Now, aside from the questions raised about the reliability of the science behind this ambitious yet questionable program, we have a seeming reluctance by the authorities to test for 1080 should you get poisoned. Please check out our 1080 ‘Suspected Poisoning’ page to explore that notion. And more recently we had a retired NZ physician threatened with prosecution for advising the public how to go about getting themselves tested should they suspect they’ve been affected by a nearby 1080 aerial drop. He adds that should you die of it, nobody will know.
Finally, on dilution. To cover that whole topic thoroughly requires a post of its own, however bear in mind the manufacturer’s data sheet warns us not to place 1080 in waterways at all:
Then there was a former co leader of the Green Party who expressed concern about the testing of post 1080 drop water. The frequency of finding 1080 in water samples is at odds with independent testing he said. Official figures say 1080 is detected only 3% of the time however, from the calculations of an independent scientist that incidence is closer to 60%. Lastly we have to ask ourselves, if 1080 is so safe in water because it breaks down, then why was there ever a regional council consent required for it in the first place? All in all not good enough in my opinion. Keeping a Class 1A ecotoxin out of your drinking, or any other water really isn’t rocket science.
Contrary to recent articles in the New Zealand media (including one seemingly supported by the Toxicology Dept of the University of Otago), 1080 poison does not become ‘safe’ when dissolved in water. In fact, historically (before it was banned), it was used in the USA as a poisoned water solution (along with DDT, before that was banned too), to kill the rats on cargo ships, in order to reduce the risk of rats’ fleas carrying a plague disease to humans.
In an academic public health journal, an article was published by Dr John H. Hughes on Aug. 11, 1950.
Entitled “1080 (Sodium Fluoroacetate) Poisoning of Rats on Ships” (Public Health Reports (1896-1970), Vol. 65, No. 32, pages 1021-1028) Dr Hughes explained how “the recommended concentration [for killing rats] is one-half ounce or 14 grams of the poison [which was] dissolved in one gallon of water.” The rats would drink from the poisoned-water bait-stations (which were made of paper cups) and die. Thousands of rats were found dead on 379 different ships, during inspections of the ships’ holds that took place between 24 hours to over a week after the poisoned water had been positioned. The dead rats were tested for poisoning to better understand the processes involved and then safely incinerated because the scientists knew of the high risks that the carcasses would contaminate other areas or poison other animals. The poisoned-water bait-stations were removed because “evaporation made the poisoned water more concentrated” – and therefore more lethal for unintended species.
Later, 1080 poison would be banned for use in ships’ holds, partly because, inevitably, many of the poisoned rats were NOT found: the risk of secondary poisoning was deemed to be too high.
If you are new to the 1080 poisoning program, a must watch 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.
Recently (Friday 28th Sept. 2018) a Facebooker posted a mainstream news item on PM Adern’s recent speech to the UN, a speech that folk are fairly buzzing about. The point about the post was the fact that on first seeing the news item the headline read ‘Adern’s World Order’. Fortunately the Facebooker took a screen shot because when she next looked the heading had changed to ‘Jacinda Adern’s debut speech to UN General …’ They’d clearly thought better of it, swapping it out for this one.
Those who have followed the unfolding of the so called New World Order, first ‘announced’ if you will by George Bush Snr after the Gulf War, will be aware of the gradual familiarization that has gone on with this term. It takes on other variations like a ‘rules based international order’ used by Adern in her speech, others are New World Order, Global Governance & One World Government.
A new world that is ‘strong and kind’ says Adern, with ‘universal values’. The push of course is for the global world view to be accepted by all as the only solution to the world’s problems. One in which we are all happy global citizens:
“This generation is a borderless one – at least in a virtual sense. One that increasingly see themselves as global citizens. And as their reality changes, they expect ours to as well – that we’ll see and understand our collective impact, and that we’ll change the way we use our power.” (excerpt from Adern’s speech)
They have been working on this plan for quite some time, the 1990s announcement by Bush was no off-the-cuff declaration:
“We are at present working discreetly, with all our might, to wrest this mysterious force called sovereignty out of the clutches of the local nation states of the world. And all the time we are denying with our lips what we are doing with our hands.” Arnold Toynbee – International Affairs, p.809, November 1931
This is why the hand over fist sell off of all our assets. Councils are also going hundy on it. The buzz is international cooperation with one another (think TPPA, interdependence, trade) practicing ‘sustainable development’ (that other buzz word) which in is really a farce. The new world will doubtless be under corporate (profit minded) control only more so. It already is. I doubt it will be as Adern describes it though. Who will be in charge is the burning question? In light of today’s economic climate, it won’t be a kind & sharing person. What have you seen that is sustainable, kind and caring since the early ’90s & all these new buzz words?
We have unprecedented debt, poverty, pollution, homelessness and never ending wars. (All of which make money for the bankers). Remember Christine LaGarde’s statement?:
It is in their interests to perpetuate these states of affairs. They respond to these problems with a steely air of, ‘who cares, let them eat cake’.
You can watch George Bush & successive Presidents also mentioning the new world order in their various speeches and announcements at our One World Govt / New World Order pages. Former NZ PM Helen Clarke was working on global governance during her time at the UN. Running a bit behind time obviously given the date is ‘by 2012’. They don’t talk about it a lot but it is there in the conversations on media if you are ‘listening’.
Here it is mentioned again after one of the hurricanes in the US recently. A screen shot from a video:
And again from the Jehovah’s Witnesses, a flier that appeared in my NZ mailbox some time back:
This is very large subject indeed. I intend to write more on it when time permits. For now, well, the headline swap out really deserved a highlight. You may think a one world government with one leader is a great thing. I am not so trusting. Far as I’m concerned the whole thing doesn’t bode well. Of course the other thing I’ve not mentioned here is Agenda 21 now 2030. That plan all ties in & is part & parcel of the same deal. In my opinion anyway.
Following is a podcast of an excellent and informative interview by Australian Hunting with Michelle Read. She gives the simple facts & the research on 1080 that we are never told. If you’re still skeptical on the anti 1080 movement, this is a must listen.
Michelle is a medical copywriter, NZ born & raised in Australia.
Michelle Read discusses the terrible effects of Sodium Monofluoroacetate (1080) in New Zealand
What is 1080 poison and how its made
Where and how 1080 is dropped
What animals can suffer from 1080 and how it kills
What species are targeted by the NZ government and why
1080 in the rivers, dams, and creeks of New Zealand
Why dogs are very susceptible to 1080
The lifespan of 1080 in animals that have been affected
There’s more, but we’ll let you discover it as you listen to this new episode of the Australian Hunting Podcast.
