Whilst NZ’s High Court agreed yesterday that it’s ‘arguable .. the Crown has acted unlawfully’ with the VX rollout, the Crown will be sorting that today by tweaking the law

For background info go here

“From Outdoors party press release: “It is arguable that the Crown has acted unlawfully”!
We won because we were right. We lost because the judge is going to let them do it anyway.


The press release says:
*“The High Court has just released its decision on the urgent challenge to the Pfizer vaccine approval and vaccination rollout plan, agreeing with the plaintiff that it was reasonably arguable that the Minister’s approval was unlawful. Her Honour Justice Ellis has agreed that everyone in New Zealand over 16 is not a limited number of patients, and so the decision is arguably ultra vires the requirements of s23 of the Medicines Act, and she has urged the government to reconsider the lawfulness of the provisional consent they granted for the Pfizer vaccine. Her Honour stopped short of ordering the vaccine rollout to stop, out of concern of undermining public confidence in the vaccine and wasting vaccine stock that is already in New Zealand.””

(Above comment by Amanda Vickers at facebook).

Legally, citing Lawyer, Sue Grey’s conclusions:

“..the judge urged the Crown to [re]consider the law carefully… That’s about all she can do due to a law passed in 2016”.

You can hear Sue’s commentary (pre govt’s subsequent announcements) here at this link.

However…. the Crown has now come up with a Plan B, saying they had been going to tweak the provisional law anyway!

“Health Minister Andrew Little says Section 23 has been used over 40 years by successive Governments to grant early access to approved therapeutic substances when it is in the public good.”

Sue comments regarding today’s emergency reform:

The government has announced an emergency reform of the Medicines Act because they were copped acting unlawfully. But it’s not even on the listed Parliamentary business… They apparently have no respect for any rules, for truth or justice and accordingly no business representing us” (Sue Grey, Lawyer).

FURTHER UPDATE (19/5/21)

“Attorney-General David Parker misleading Parliament. They have made the new amendment “Notwithstanding s22….” Section 22 requires the benefit of a new medicine to exceed the risks. The removal of this criteria is a fundamental and very serious change. Why would anyone who is supposed to represent the public interest approve a new medicine on a provisional or any other basis if the benefit does NOT exceed the risks? This is what happens when the PM and Ministers arrogantly ignore an open letter then rush through law without consultation or social licence.” (Sue Grey, Lawyer)

IN CONCLUSION

Read at the mainstream sources below & decide for yourself. Those who wish to take this experimental injection, that is their personal right & choice. And those who do not, likewise. The point of this challenge in court was that the provisional approval was for a limited number of people only, not for all of NZ. However, as we can see here, the Crown will sort that no problem, by tweaking the paperwork. It has been clear from the media spin from way back that it is their intention to have everybody take the experimental injection anyway. After all they have purchased enough supplies to accommodate every Kiwi for two doses. As her Honour Judge Ellis has said yesterday … in spite of the aforementioned cautionary statements, they don’t want to waste that stock or undermine public confidence.

I note the ‘limited number’ concern seems to have now slipped into oblivion.

12/5/21 PM… Update from Voices for Freedom:

“COURT UPDATE 👩‍⚖️The reports are in that Sue has done an incredible job this morning to represent the interests of New Zealanders standing up to unlawful government behaviour! 👊Word is that the judge has been listening. 👂She was unaware of the VAERS system and is asking some good questions. She is entertaining the idea that the rollout has been unlawful. Crown law have been arguing that the “limited” wording was used due to the initial rollout to the border workers. It appears that this is their way of justifying the use of the specific section of the Medicines Act. Sue has argued back that if this was the case, and the border workers theoretically work in a scenario with higher risk, then how can this be lawfully extended to the broader public? 🤔We have just caught snippets during the lunch break and will bring you another update with more information later in the day! 🙌🤸🏾‍♀️🤸🏽‍♂️Join the movement!” www.voicesforfreedom.co.nz/join-us

Thank you to Sue for all she is doing to challenge this important point our government is overlooking about the CV injection … approval for a limited number only to take an experimental injection – not most of NZ.

First time ever a Regional Council is being challenged for giving our water away – Aotearoa Water Action – protect our water from international water miners

Project 2018-02-12 09:05:20 UTC

the challenge…

Last year Environment Canterbury (aka ECan) issued consents to two water bottling companies that allow them to bottle over 24 million litres per day of precious Canterbury aquifer water from bores in Belfast, North Christchurch.  

The consents are based on historical permits for the Silver Fern Farms works and the Kaputone Wool Scour. Those industries used only a tiny fraction of the consented water ‘take’ but the bottling companies will be using every last drop. 

The aquifer is fully allocated and ECan doesn’t understand the potential effects of the increased extraction on artesian pressures and water quality; on freshwater ecosystems; on neighbouring bores; or on the community water supply, because there have been no assessments.  Despite this they’ve bent over backwards to find a process that will enable the bottling to go ahead without public consultation.  We’ll be challenging the legality of that process.

At the time of writing this nearly 90,000 people had signed Genevieve Robinson’s petition calling for the  consent to be revoked. 

However, construction is going ahead and a new bore has been drilled.

We don’t want NZ to stop at protest when we can use the law to protect our water.  We have an opinion from a top Queen’s Counsel that we have a strong case and we’re ready to bring legal proceedings to overturn the Belfast bottling consents.  But we need your help…


Please click on a reward (to the right) to pledge.  If you have any trouble pledging please let us know so we can fix the problem.
