Australian women win landmark surgical mesh case – but Kiwi women can’t sue

From Stuff

Australian women suffering life-long complications from transvaginal surgical mesh have won a landmark case against pharmaceutical giant Johnson & Johnson and two of its affiliated companies.

Federal Court Justice Anna Katzmann found in favour of the group of 1200 women in the case against Johnson & Johnson on Thursday.

Complications included chronic inflammatory reaction, erosion of mesh into surrounding organs, infection, chronic pain, pain with sex, incontinence, damage to surrounding tissues, haemorrhage, leg weakness, further surgery and psychological injury.

The mesh products were used to treat stress urinary incontinence or uterus prolapse after childbirth in Australia and New Zealand.

* Questions raised over whether Kiwi surgeons have enough experience and skill for transvaginal mesh implants

Katzmann said Johnson & Johnson and mesh manufactures Ethicon Sarl and Ethicon Inc engaged in misleading conduct, and each was negligent as the risks for the devices were “known, and not insignificant”.

The burning of Australia: steering the world’s population towards global governance

Listen to Australian Max Igan describe information about the fires you won’t be reading about in mainstream media. For those who are awake & aware of the lies & propaganda we are being fed on a daily basis now, this will all come as no surprise. And at the same time we have a mainstream article informing us we will (of course) have to re think the way we live (aka out of the wild places, into the smart cities).  The controllers of this narrative have of course pulled insurance to make this happen. Into the surveilled smart cities where you are watched & you also fry under the newly ramped up sea of 5G frequencies about to be unleashed in NZ also, that they continue to tell us is harmless even though it’s not been tested for human and environmental safety. Literally microwave weaponry. Pack and stack is going to be a hard sell in NZ still they’re at it already with pack and stack accommodation planned for various places. And having ground down the people into poverty & hopelessness well that makes it not so hard. Cheap inner city housing. Anything better than languishing in cars, sheds and garages isn’t it? This has been well planned. See the Agenda 21/2030 pages at the main menu for more info on that. Also on point, see the recent video from Canterbury SkyWatch on the aluminum in the fires from the aircraft & geoengineering. As Max says, why are they not seeding the clouds (well known technology used world wide) to put the fires out?

 

Bushfires force rethink about how we live

From 7news.com.au

Lives will change as bushfire seasons become longer and more fierce, a health expert has warned.

Australians are being told to rethink everything from health to housing as more than 130 blazes rage across drought-parched Queensland and NSW, claiming lives and homes.

It means people will need to change the way they live as the never-before-seen bushfires become commonplace, Queensland University of Technology environmental health Professor Hilary Bambrick says.

“In Australia, we’ve got this idea that we just rebuild after a catastrophe, and just put the same thing back there again,” she told AAP on Thursday.

Two babies die minutes after receiving the MMR vaccination! … one allegedly without parental consent & in spite of the mother’s protest

This is unbelievably shocking. Two little ones in Samoa, only one year old, both of them. Think of the grieving parents in this totally avoidable tragedy. Deepest condolences to those parents. This is why parents are questioning vaccines. And yet they are vilified for doing so. They are taking away our choices for our own health & the health of our babies. Ask for the inserts parents. Ask for the risks, the side effects. Ask if it’s been tested. Ask to see the test results. Know what the odds are of damage to you & your children, before consenting. Ask if you will be compensated for injuries. We’ve grown too blase about asking questions. Thing is the numbers of vaccines has risen dramatically in recent decades. What used to be a very minimal risk of damage, has now become far more common. Clearly we need to be asking questions, and expecting satisfactory answers. See our vaccine pages for further info. EnvirowatchRangitikei

From News Hub

The head of the Ministry of Health in Samoa has ordered the immediate recall of all measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccines after the deaths of two one-year-olds.

The children were given the MMR vaccine on Friday at Safotu Hospital on the island of Savai’i. However within minutes they were dead. One child was allegedly immunised without the mother’s consent – and despite her protesting.

Health Ministry CEO Dr Take Naseri says a full investigation is underway into the deaths. All MMR vaccines in Samoa have been ordered to be seized and the staff involved have been stood down, TV1 Samoa reports.

Prime Minister Tuilaepa Lupesoliai Dr Sailele Malielegaoi says he is waiting to be fully briefed on the situation.

“I have called a full inquiry into the circumstances leading up to this devastating incident which I do not take lightly,” he told media.

“There are already processes that will determine if negligence is a factor. And if so, rest assured those processes will be implemented to the letter to ensure that such tragic [deaths] will not be repeated and those responsible will be made to answer.”

Murder at Pike River Mine – the Truth You Won’t Find in Mainstream Media

What a heart breaking story this is. The angst of the families, their loved ones so near yet so very far. Now they plan to seal the mine off. When this story was initially over and we knew there was no hope they would ever emerge from the mine alive, and when reporters began to dig below the surface, so the shocking facts began to emerge. The miners’ working environment had been unsafe for some time. For a thorough exposé of the truth of this whole affair, download and read ‘Murder at Pike River Mine’ by Dr Jacob Cohen. You will not of course find this information in mainstream news. Are you joining any dots? 

“The incestuous collusion between corrupt fascist, international corporations, banks, global mining companies and compliant politicians – and how the inexorable love of money by those who run them supersedes everything else” 

“What was the real truth behind the Pike River coal mine disaster in NZ killing 29 men? Was the tragedy simply an ‘accident’ or was it premeditated murder? Involving people at the highest level of the NZ Government and international business and banking community? Does this case have implications for the world?”
Dr Jacob Cohen

Pike River: No more Government money for further mine recovery, families accept decision

30 March 2021

The Minister in charge of Pike River won’t consider going further into the mine – a decision that’s been accepted “with heartbreak” by families involved. In a statement on Tuesday morning, the Pike River Family Reference Group said it now accepts official advice going further into the mine would be unsafe and expensive. Twenty-nine men lost their lives in the explosion in 2010, with the search for their remains the centre of an ongoing political battle.

Pike River mine survivor: ‘there are people in that mine that survived, just like I did’

Nov 14, 2016

“I think they’ve just tried to ease us into it by delaying it and pushing it back and back year after year. They’re just kicking us in the guts once more.”

There is no doubt in Daniel Rockhouse’s mind that he and Russell Smith were not the only two who survived the first Pike River mine explosion.

Rockhouse made his way out of the mine after a methane blast on November 19, 2010, dragging Smith with him.

The friends were the only two men who came out alive after the explosion ripped through the West Coast coal mine, leaving 29 trapped inside – where they remain today.

He calls Solid Energy’s plans to permanently plug the mine with concrete “disgusting”.

Rockhouse said the fight for answers had been traumatising, stressful and emotional – to the point where he had stepped away. But his mother continued to battle.

He had faced 12 health and safety charges relating to the deaths of 29 men after a series of explosions at the West Coast coal mine five years ago.

The prosecution was dropped after an insurance payment of more than $3 million was made to the families of the men who died.

Two women who lost family members in the disaster had asked the court to review the decision by Worksafe New Zealand not to offer any evidence on the charges.

Anna Osborne, whose husband was killed in the mine blast, and Sonya Rockhouse, whose son died, were assisted in their legal bid by the Council of Trade Unions (CTU).
