All of these token fines are a slap on the wrist for these behemoths. Corporations rule remember. And the (sorry) ‘dumb’ public of NZ can’t wait to get jabbed. EWR
The world’s biggest drugmaker was slapped with the huge fines by the U.S. government after being deemed a repeat offender in pitching drugs to patients and doctors for unapproved uses.
Pfizer Inc agreed on Wednesday to plead guilty to a U.S. criminal charge relating to promotion of its now-withdrawn Bextra pain medicine and will pay a record $2.3 billion to settle allegations it improperly marketed 13 medicines.
“In the Levin District Court on Monday, Fyfe Charles Williamson was sentenced to 80 hours’ community work after a judge accepted the farmer was unable to pay the massive fine allowed under the Resource Management Act…
The significant damage and risk Williamson’s actions caused to native wildlife and fauna would have resulted in an $80,000 fine, if the farmer could have paid it, the judge said …”
So the chap gets off because the fine is too big?? Where else can that happen? Note how mainstream whore media reframe the whole thing. ‘Narrowly avoids’ … what a farce this is. We have a law to protect the environment, but only from certain people who can afford the fine! Remember the guy who got a jail sentence for catching fish where he wasn’t supposed to in the Rotorua lakes … to feed his family? No mercy for that man, who had to spend 12 months away from his family, and this Horowhenua man kills thousands of fish, having knowingly broken the law … gets 80 hrs community service because he can’t afford $80,000. Wouldn’t that normally just translate to an equivalent jail sentence? Justice for the wealthy farmer, none for the poor man feeding his family. Also deemed racist at the time compared with other contemporary crimes. Please, before you all jump up and down about that, don’t shoot the messenger. That was from newshub and really in the cold light of day it does look as they say doesn’t it?
Remember this is why they sent thousands to ‘the colonies’ particularly Australia, stealing bread for their families got them deported quick smart. Sounding more familiar by the day. All getting very Dickensian isn’t it? And note on the farcical toothless Resource Management Act …. Dr Mike Joy has called it out thus on social media: “The RMA is a joke, and a very bad one at that, and this is a prime example.”
Here is the article from Stuff:
And the following from newshub:
So … the people entrusted with the oversight of your health, are not keen about you being proactive yourselves about possible 1080 poisoning? Remember how they missed the required time frame for testing the poisoned Putaruru family? When Doctors were saying it was likely 1080? Go figure. Big thanks to Dr Baycroft for sharing his medical expertise with us, and to Carol Sawyer for drawing our attention to this.

Dr. Charlie Baycroft, retired medical practitioner, comments today:
“Interesting that I just received a letter from the Ministry of Health threatening to prosecute and fine me $10,000 for having an opinion without a current practising certificate. I have asked for their agreement to show this threatening letter to the media. Seems like the Ministry supports poisoning more than health. My reply was not very polite. This country is being run by fools. It is time for the people to demand their freedom back.”
I posted the attached newspaper advertisement ( which is presumably the opinion the Ministry of Health is referring to ) on Facebook on April 8, with this comment :
“VERY IMPORTANT ADVERTISEMENT IN ‘THE NEWS” ( WESTPORT ), 6 April, 2018 – 1080 DROP “BEFORE AND AFTER” MEDICAL TESTS.
It is good to know what tests to ask our doctors for before a 1080 poison drop…. at last !
Then, after the poison drop, and exposure to it, get yourself tested really quickly.. that is very important as you can see stated here.
Make sure you have a urine sample kit at home, would be my suggestion.
Even if you just think dust may have drifted over you, or your home… get yourself to the doctor’s and don’t leave until you have the tests !!!”
