The peaceful hikoi against 1080 is met with a 40-50 strong Police presence & a lawyer giving legal advice says she was assaulted

“A large group of anti-1080 protesters were partaking in a hikoi to Parliament when they were met with an “enormous police presence”, according to lawyer Sue Grey who was among those protesting.”

Sue said she was later assaulted whilst giving legal advice to arrestees.

“Ms Grey estimated there were between 40 and 50 police officers blocking the road from Onepoto Domain as the group were preparing to cross the Harbour Bridge.

“The whole thing just turned ugly in moments from the police conduct,” she said. “It was just unbelievable; it was like walking into a nightmare. They were extremely firm and in some cases physically assaulting people. It was a very frightening scene that I’ve never come across before.” ”  newshub.co.nz

Remember folk, your government (that is how a corporation & owns the factory that produces 1080) has allowed the rules to be changed to allow the dropping of 1080 into your waterways. I mention corporation because a corporation* cannot & does not  place the interests of you the people above those of the corporation.

“Up until 2017, regional councils issued resource consent certificates to government agencies and contractors that permitted 1080 poison bait to be spread across land and directly into water. However, in 2017, the New Zealand Government changed legislation, and that legislation now permits poison bait to be aerially spread across land and directly into water, without the requirement for a resource consent certificate – effectively excluding the aerial distribution of poison bait, from the protection of the Resource Management Act.”

It was landing there anyway prior to this change (see here also), however it has now been made legal.

This should be concerning you.

The people on the hikoi have noted this change of tack & are saying in effect, ‘enough is enough’. We do not want our whenua, our land and our water, poisoned with impunity. Listen below here to more of that detail around why.


For further articles here on 1080, go to ‘categories’ (left of news page). Also, visit the 1080 pages for links to other independent info. In particular, see the page titled, ‘Suspected 1080 Poisoning Cases’. There is documented there the history of the Putaruru family who fell ill recently & the ensuing cover up on suspected 1080 poisoning following their hospitalization after consumption of wild pork. See also the case of the young hiker in the South Island who died & whose Doctor suspected 1080 poisoning. Her heart sent for testing, was lost by the authorities! Another cover up.

For on-the-ground coverage, see the many social media groups providing day by day updates, particularly the Hikoi of a Poisoned Nation, Operation Ban 1080, 1080 Eyewitness and No to 1080 Use in NZ groups on Facebook. There is a complete list of the many groups, resources, sites etc relating to 1080 at this link. Note: you will read the independent info & research at these links. It is somewhat different to the official mantra of the alleged safety of 1080 poison.

Published on Dec 3, 2013

This New Zealand film has won 4 international environmental awards – but here in NZ, TV channels refuse to play it. Why? Because if they did, there would be outrage and riots over New Zealand’s use of aerially applied 1080 poison. See for yourself …

*THE CORPORATION is a Canadian documentary film written by Joel Bakan, and directed by Mark Achbar and Jennifer Abbott. The documentary examines the modern-day corporation, considering its legal status as a class of person and evaluating its behavior towards society and the world at large as a psychiatrist might evaluate an ordinary person. This is explored through specific examples. Bakan wrote the book, The Corporation: The Pathological Pursuit of Profit and Power, during the filming of the documentary.

New info on the recent 6-helicopter entourage over Fiordland by the head of NZ’s Dept. of Conservation & 30 odd international bankers

In brief, this entourage may be connected to an environmental group called The Nature Conservancy group as stated by another source. It is a group that partners with corporations to fund conservation. This trend sees companies known for their polluting practices dubbed by many as ‘greenwash’ corporates. Just another sneaky way into yet another cash cow … the environment. And all a part of UN’s Agenda 21/30. Read the full article below.

RELATED LINKS:

1) WHY WERE THE HEADS OF NZ’S DEPT. OF CONSERVATION & HONG KONG’S GOLDMAN SACHS TOURING PARTS OF FIORDLAND RECENTLY IN A SIX-HELICOPTER ENTOURAGE?

2) NEW INFO ON THE RECENT 6-HELICOPTER ENTOURAGE OVER FIORDLAND BY THE HEAD OF NZ’S DEPT. OF CONSERVATION & 30 ODD INTERNATIONAL BANKERS

3) SOUTHLAND DISTRICT COUNCIL HAS TOLD A CORRESPONDENT THAT THE RECENT HELICOPTER TOUR OF FIORDLAND BY 30 ODD INTERNATIONAL BANKERS & DOC WAS ‘PHILANTHROPIC’ … AND NARY A WHISPER FROM MAINSTREAM MEDIA?


Recent info supplied by Carol Sawyer about the sighting of a DoC, banking helicopter entourage over Fiordland has brought comment at our Facebook discussion from a visitor who is a former Labour Party MP. She assured me that the entourage was not paid for by DoC (although that was a minor concern compared to 30 odd international bankers eyeing up the landscape from on high). She says a reliable source told her in confidence that the members touring were from The Nature Conservancy (TNC) group.  Carol who supplied the original information, also from a confidential & reliable source maintains firmly that these were definitely international bankers.

A little research into the TNC which I’d not hitherto heard of, proved very interesting. It is a Hong Kong group and is headed by a former Goldman Sachs CEO.

If what this visitor to the discussion is saying is true, and if it’s said in terms of ‘all’s well, it’s just about conservation & DoC weren’t paying’, then we in fact do have cause for concern. Check out their corporate partners: “Pepsi Co, Disney, IBM, Goldman Sachs, Walmart and Cargill. In Asia Pacific, … Neutrogena in Australia and Rio Tinto in Mongolia. In Hong Kong, …  Dragonair, Pacific Coffee Company, FORTUNE China, HSBC Private Bank, the Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Hong Kong Commercial Radio, Moet Hennessy Asia Pacific, Time Asia, Sun Hung Kai Properties and the Hong Kong Airport Authority”. And there it is again, Goldman Sachs. They’re featuring quite prominently. And Key’s friends from Merrill Lynch.

If you navigate from the NZ website for TNC, there is another list of global companies that have partnered with them. On that very long list are Dow Chemicals, Shell & Coke to name three, who are all ill qualified to fit any green profile by any stretch of the imagination.

Speaking broadly, a not so new breed of ‘environmental’ people have clearly been dominating the green movement for some time particularly since neo liberal economics and are in fact all for profit. Strange bedfellows they shroud their activities in a deceptive cloak of green & sustainable rhetoric but don’t be fooled. The bottom line of corporations is profit. (Read Behind the Green Mask on that. The author Rosa Koire’s site is here).

TNC has been operating here in NZ since 2016:

“As part of a three-year strategic plan, in 2016 we worked with government officials, local communities, indigenous (Iwi) leaders, businesses and local conservation groups to identify science-based solutions to poor water quality and runoff.”

You can read at the link what else they’re up to. Clearly with their input our waterways are no cleaner and our clean water reserves are still either under threat, or being bottled and sent off shore for the sole benefit of foreign corporations that plunder us with impunity. While the councils that gave the consents sit by and twiddle their thumbs, plunging their rate payers into deeper and deeper debt. Doesn’t make sense does it? Why do you virtually give away a valuable water resource to an offshore corporation but charge your own people top dollar? Why do you not sell it instead & benefit your district and its ratepayers? Favours for your corporate mates I’d suspect. And further cheap land available when the ratepayers’ find they can’t meet the rates. See what happened in Kaipara. 

Copy of no-money-2070384_1280.jpg

For an explanation on the councils’ debt agenda go here & read Dr Naomi Jacobs’ exposé. A useful exercise on consents is to attend one of your council’s consent hearings. The last one I sat in on, the chair of the ‘independent panel’ (one of three corporates well versed in the RM Act) made a Freudian slip & said ‘when the consent is granted’ … ‘I mean, if the consent is granted’. The consents were of course granted & the folk who lived next door to the moderate sized Bonny Glen refuse tip that the Rangitikei council sold in the early 2000s to an offshore Chinese corporation, were faced with living next door to a tip quadruple the size and all the drop in property values, the stench, the trucks through town, the rats, feral cats and the leachate in the waterways that go with that.  (Sustainable practices). The hearings were held far from the residents’ who were to be affected of course, many of whom doubtless had jobs to go to, a time worn tactic employed on Māori to relieve them of their lands.

There is big money in refuse.

So TNC’s vision as stated at their website is:

“…to leave a sustainable world for future generations, in Hong Kong and around the world.

Sounds great doesn’t it? (Hong Kong note, one of the entourage was head of Hong Kong Goldman Sachs). If you are familiar with Agenda 21/30 you will have spotted that word ‘sustainable’. It’s what is woven throughout local & regional councils’ websites world wide as a purely lip service stab at getting you to believe it’s about conservation. It is a line that really is wearing thin. I mean really thin. Any smart thinking person can see there’s been nothing sustainable going on since the corporate takeover of all things precious and dear on the planet three decades ago. That would be since the early nineties when Bush first announced the New World Order directly after the Gulf War. That by the way was when the US military injected their soldiers with that ‘mysterious’ illness called Gulf War Syndrome. Followed by theRio Declaration on Environment and Development, and the Statement of principles for the Sustainable Management of Forests, adopted by more than 178 Governments at the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) held in Rio de Janerio, Brazil, 3 to 14 June 1992″. Since then our countries have also become corporations, along with their respective former government departments. Since the signing up of those nations to this Agenda 21 agreement now known as Agenda 2030, we have had our fresh waters trashed, lands pilfered, forests plundered and our oceans trashed & pilfered as well. Did I miss anything? There’s little left anywhere of anything pristine yet the lies continue to roll out for the gullible to swallow, on the plan for sustainable development. What bollocks.

This blog thread on TNC is interesting. Read the comments also at the link.

“The CEO of TNC is Mark Tercek who was formerly “managing director at Goldman Sachs where he played a key role in developing the firm’s environmental strategy. He headed the firm’s Environmental Strategy Group and Center for Environmental Markets, which worked to develop and promote market-based solutions to environmental challenges”. I concur with their thoughts, climate disaster & pollution are not opportunities for investment!

Noted also are the level of salaries these CEOs earn & we are urged to cease donating to them, it being better to donate to groups that use the money to do the work not pay obscenely large salaries of $250K.  Note also the salaries of our heavily indebted councils across NZ. District Councils are the Trojan horse for Agenda 21/30.

Tercek is also a member of several boards and councils, including Resources for the Future and the Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions. He is also a member of the Council on Foreign Relations. Think Bilderberger and secrecy & New World Order on the latter organization. That is cause for concern just by itself (that is if you don’t believe the lie of the happy global village with all things equal. Is it looking anything like equal three decades in?)

Tercek is also the author of a book called Nature’s Fortune: How Business and Society Thrive by Investing in Nature.

They sure do.

14484651_1472593802754892_3596900895775183479_n.jpg

Corporations always have this awkward marrying of profit and economic sustainability & guess which always wins out?  A quick glance around your local district councils and their modus operandi will tell you that. It’s never the environment. It’s all in the clever wording. They have to balance the two. “…each [corporate] engagement has, at its core” says TNC, “the potential to help us achieve our goal of protecting lands and waters on which all life depends.” Note the operative words there are “the potential”. Nice and non committal, non conclusive … followed by the emotive protectorate verbiage about land and water “on which all life depends”. (Note: If you’re unfamiliar with the absolute bottom line of corporations ie profit, do watch The Corporation doco).

There are other global environmental organizations being run by global banking elites. The World Wildlife Fund (WWF) for instance was at one time (2010 according to the source) managed by an ex Goldman Sachs Managing Director Larry Linden. The current WWF CEO Carter Roberts “has built partnerships with some of the world’s largest corporations, including Walmart, Cargill and Mars” and is also a member of the CFR.

The WWF is an organization with a little known dark side. It’s not just about cuddly Panda bears. You can learn about that at the following link:

A new book “accuses the WWF of “selling its soul” to corporations in exchange for their donations, as well as forging alliances with powerful, non-sustainable businesses that are destroying the planet and “greenwashing” their operations under the conservation group’s label.” WWF it’s reported is also involved in “the beatings and torture of indigenous peoples in the name of “conservation”.

So, the marriage of corporations & the banking fraternity with conservation & under the banner of ‘sustainable development’, the guise of all things green, is a complete scam and a sham. Again, don’t fall for it.

“The interest in NZ by these people is all about resources and more sinister technologies. Everyone wants a piece of ‘Little Texas’, and this unregulated airspace and associated tech opportunities.  Lets NOT forget our close location to the Pole and the large wealth of resources therein. Christchurch is the world’s ‘mine’ door.” (Comment from thecontrail.com).

You can be assured Kiwis, that the clearing off of our lands with all the poison is not about conservation.  Watch the four times award winning film on NZ’s wholesale poisoning program that your government/corporation doesn’t want you to see.

Watch now for NZ partnerships. Who is cosying up to who? As the saying goes, “There’s gold in them thar hills”. On land acquisition, it being the end game of a group that wants global governance, check out their Public Private Partnership modus operandi. The late Joan Veon* told us that:

“Private Partnerships (PPP)are an arm of the world’s growing Public corporatocracy & their bottom line is to take control of the assets of Government”.

The Horowhenua District Council last year announced they would be using PPPs to sell off their surplus land having already all but gifted their community housing assets to a large property developer. Similar has happened in Tamaki with our State homes, all exposed thanks to Penny Bright’s investigative work.

So, regarding the entourage over Fiordland, it’s watch this space. We may in due course see some new plan emerge to conserve the Fiordlands. Not for profit of course.


*Joan Veon in the course of her work alongside and with the UN researched extensively andinterviewed high profile public figures on these matters during the ’90s when things were kicking off. You can read and listen to her at this link. There are many more of her lectures on Youtube. (When I post Joan’s PPP video on Facebook it gets marked as spam).

To learn more about UN’s Agenda 21/30 visit our main menu. The agenda is already in NZ, see the Agenda 21/30 in NZ page also.

Post Script:
I am keen to hear from any of you out there who knew about and were familiar with the TNC group and their conservation work. I would’ve thought it would be headline news and any activity over Fiordland with their corporate partners (?) on conserving that place would be also? But no it flew literally right under the radar. By helicopter.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The 4x award winning film the NZ Govt doesn’t want you to see

“The following New Zealand film has won 4 international environmental awards – but here in NZ, TV channels refuse to play it. Why? Because if they did, there would be outrage and riots over New Zealand’s use of aerially applied 1080 poison. See for yourself … ” From TheGrafBoys‘ Youtube Channel

For over 15 years the New Zealand Government has been systematically dropping massive amounts of food, laced with a cruel and universally toxic poison into its forest ecosystems. Enough poison every year to kill the entire population of NZ four times over. No other country is doing, or ever has done, anything remotely similar on such a scale.

Sodium Fluoroacetate

Untitled9
Animals poisoned by 1080 die a long, slow and horrible death

1080 is an alias for Monofluoroacetate, a chemical. It blocks a particular step in the Krebs Cycle (Citric Acid Cycle) which is essential for the metabolism of oxygen in every cell of every animal. It kills everything that breathes air, everything from earthworms to elephants, including native birds. The World Health Organization (WHO) classifies 1080 as ‘Extremely Hazardous’, most countries ban it outright. NZ uses 85% of the world’s supply … I’m not sure what that means but I guess the world hasn’t figured out what a wonderful thing it really is.

Poisoning our water

In Oct 2014 two of Auckland’s water supply lakes were closed for four months because the herbicide metsulfuron-methyl has been found in them. Soon afterwards, Auckland City Council announced that they planned to drop 1080 on the Hunua Ranges, the source of their water supply. The Greymouth Star reported on Oct 16 2014 that the West Coast Regional Council had admitted they have a $500,00 investment in a new factory that is considering themanufacture of 1080 near Christchurch.  A metabolic poison, 1080 is extremely toxic to all air-breathing organisms. In most countries it is banned outright or severely restricted because of its lethality and its indiscriminate killing power. For further information on 1080 (NZ uses about 90% of the world’s production!) read here: http://ban1080.co.nz/1080-facts/

Shot at, assaulted, arrested, thrown in jail, drugged, car destroyed, home sledgehammered – something is very wrong with NZ’s justice system – (a must read book review)

A Book, “Man of Convictions” by Anne Hunt
Reviewed by Veronica Harrod

This is a book I’ve only part read but will be completing as soon as I have time. The little I’ve read is a shocking eye opener and indicative of the fact that something is terribly wrong with our justice system. Not the country I grew up in that is for sure.  EnvirowatchHorowhenua

Documented detail about Taueki’s battles as kaitiaki and the cost he has personally paid including being shot at, assaulted, arrested, thrown in jail; his car was destroyed beyond repair, his home by the lake was sledgehammered until only a shell remained, his much loved dogs were traumatised and he says he was “drugged against my will and without my knowledge.”

 

By Veronica Harrod

Anne Hunt, published by Potangotango Foundation, PO Box 664, Levin 5540, New Zealand, Man of Convictions: Taueki – a man, his tribe and their lake, http://annehunt.co.nz; 2017. 275pp. ISBN 978-0-473-40314-0 (PDF)

This is journalist Anne Hunt’s fourth non-fiction book and first e-book. “Man of Convictions” is referred to as “first published” and “V1.11” because Hunt will update the content with new information when it’s available. The author states she, “makes no apology for writing this book from the perspective of the Taueki family.” Hunt also makes background information available on her website including court documents and transcripts which supports the book’s content. She also includes information in the book about her own family history and extensive and enduring involvement in assisting Philip Taueki since 2010.

The e-book comprises 24 chapters on Levin resident Philip Taueki’s battles as a kaitiaki of Lake Horowhenua since his return from London in 2004 where he was working as an accountant “…for some time living in the prestigious neighbourhood of WC1 London where members of the Royal Family reside.”

But this isn’t a book about his impressive academic and professional achievements it is a book about how ugly everything can get when there is a lot at stake. Hunt describes in meticulous and documented detail about Taueki’s battles as kaitiaki and the cost he has personally paid including being shot at, assaulted, arrested, thrown in jail; his car was destroyed beyond repair, his home by the lake was sledgehammered until only a shell remained, his much loved dogs were traumatised and he says he was “drugged against my will and without my knowledge.” For the last nine months he has been left with no water supply to his residence after Horowhenua District Council illegally turned it off and he will face a retrial on a charge of trespssing on his own land in January 2018 even though he has been aquitted twice of the same charge in previous court cases.

The opening chapter traverses the history of MuaUpoko and Philip’s whakapapa to “an ariki by the name of Taueki, the renowned paramount chief” who signed “the Treaty of Waitangi” before launching in chapter after gruelling chapter of his numerous arrests, court cases and the role third parties have played including state and government organisations. The, no doubt, long fought for establishment approval he achieved in London stands in stark contrast to the scorn, ridicule and material deprivation he has experienced since returning to the community where he was born and raised. Many people in his home town of Levin refer to renowned paramount chief Taueki’s great great grandson Philip Taueki as “the Mad Maori who lived down by the lake.”

The book presents a disturbing picture of what people in positions of power and authority are prepared to do to maintain control over Lake Horowhenua even if it means lying under oath. At one court trial Judge Harvey asked former Horowhenua District Council mayor Brendan Duffy whether two buildings formerly tenanted by the yachting and rowing clubs had toilets and Mr Duffy answered “correct” even though, “On inspection they confirmed there were no toilets to be found.” Hunt has included quotes from court transcripts at every point in the book where the facts are likely to be disputed. What Mr Duffy said in court on oath is just one such example of her attention to detail. The behaviour of the local police also leaves a lot to be desired. One of many such instances is described when,”Constable Lionel Currie had certainly not picked a good time to claim he had served this trespass notice on Phil down at the lake. At that precise time, a whole team of councillors and candidates were erecting election hoardings in Levin, all prepared to testify that Phil was with us, hard at work digging holes in the stony ground.”

I would have liked to see Lake Horowhenua ownership information included as a separate paragraph in its own right because who the legal owners of Lake Horowhenua are is the crux of the issue Hunt writes about. Instead some of this important information is buried in other references. We know the lake is privately owned because Hunt writes, “A British certificate of title for the lake partition had been issued on 19 March 1899” but annoyingly doesn’t say who it was issued to except that “Mua-Upoko’s vast ancestral estate had therefore shrivelled from 52,000 acres in the whole Horowhenua Block to little more than a lake and some sandy acres along the shoreline.”

Also I would have liked to see mentioned in the book that of the 43 charges laid by Levin police against Phil Taueki 33 have been quashed, dropped or he was found not guilty of. That fact alone suggests something else apart from maintaining law and order was motivating the local police force.

That aside this e-book is essential reading for everyone who lives in Horowhenua, especially Levin, and those interested in reading about history, police injustices, legal cases and precedents, Maori, European/colonial world views and the long and convoluted history of the fight for control over Lake Horowhenua not least because it challenges long held assumptions. Horowhenua District Council officers, elected officials, journalists and media should also read this book.

The e-book is written in a straight-forward and easy to read style and the layout is easy to navigate. At the end of each chapter are notes which include a glossary of terms, names of relevant people, Maori to English translation of certain words, maps and points of interest that help to provide context and understanding. The way the information has been presented makes the timeline of events easy to follow which is important because there were so many arrests, so many charges, so many court cases against Philip Taueki which is why the book is called “Man of Convictions” available for free download at http://annehunt.co.nz/#

DoC’s own records show that 100s of Kiwi are being killed in 1080 poisoned habitats

Shocking information here. This is an ad for the Ban 1080 party for the election just gone. A short clip that provides visual evidence of DoC’s documentation of Kiwi deaths. Remember our post on the 89 deaths that showed no testing for 1080 as being cause of death … the obvious sure fire way to prove it WASN’T 1080 & they didn’t use it? Makes you wonder doesn’t it? Why would they not do that? DoC it would appear, prefers to squirm out of the obvious ways of proving to us that 1080 is doing a good job. Then there was the NZ Lab’s loss of a human heart that a MD had asked to have tested for possible 1080 poison. Again, makes you wonder doesn’t it? What are they hiding? In my humble opinion I think it might be the evidence 1080 isn’t working.

Solid Energy CE “refuses to listen” to UN mining experts on Pike River re-entry – what’s to hide?

pike-5
Pike River Mine, now closed since the fatal explosion that took the lives of 29 men and which mining company Solid Energy soon plans to seal with 30 meters of concrete

These families whose loved ones still lie in the Pike River mine, are determined to get them out, get answers and justice,  give them a proper burial, and grieve and obtain closure. They’ve gone about acquiring a report from both a group of UN experts as well as a British former mines inspector. The report which has been both peer reviewed and endorsed by mining experts advises re-entry to the mine is “absolutely possible”.

So why is Solid Energy’s CE not willing to even sit down and listen to this report? They have plans to seal the mine in February with 30 meters of concrete. What’s to hide then?

Bernie Monk has said he’s “over” the firm because of this refusal and intends to deal only with the Government from now on. He hopes to bring the expert who wrote the plan to a meeting with new PM Bill English.

This cold hearted and steely indifference to the human suffering of these families for their loved ones is atypical of the character of corporations. The term ‘character’ is not a misnomer by any stretch of the imagination. In the documentary called ‘The Corporation’, professionals in their respective fields have astutely classified and labeled the “legal person hood” that corporations enjoy, as basically “psychopathic”. This legal entity is constructed in such a way that it enjoys complete absolution from all responsibility for the harm it inflicts. We can see this playing out now in the Pike River mining tragedy. Please also read Dr Jacob Cohen’s exposé of their activity in this respect. The following information is from The Corporation film’s own website.

A Legal “Person”

“In the mid-1800s the corporation emerged as a legal “person.” Imbued with a “personality” of pure self-interest, the next 100 years saw the corporation’s rise to dominance. The corporation created unprecedented wealth but at what cost? The remorseless rationale of “externalities” (as Milton Friedman explains, the unintended consequences of a transaction between two parties on a third) is responsible for countless cases of illness, death, poverty, pollution, exploitation and lies.”

The people who work for corporations may be good people, upstanding citizens in their communities, but none of that matters when they enter the corporation’s world.

“To assess the “personality” of the corporate “person,” a checklist is employed, using diagnostic criteria of the World Health Organization and the standard diagnostic tool of psychiatrists and psychologists. The operational principles of the corporation give it a highly anti-social “personality”: it is self-interested, inherently amoral, callous and deceitful; it breaches social and legal standards to get its way; it does not suffer from guilt, yet it can mimic the human qualities of empathy, caring and altruism. Four case studies, drawn from a universe of corporate activity, clearly demonstrate harm to workers, human health, animals and the biosphere. Concluding this point-by-point analysis, a disturbing diagnosis is delivered: the institutional embodiment of laissez-faire capitalism fully meets the diagnostic criteria of a “psychopath.” “

Watch ‘The Corporation’ movie on our Corporations page. A very enlightening movie, it will switch on the light to what is really happening with this heart rending scenario at Pike River. It is time for these behemoths to be disabled and dismantled. They are about control and greed … and absolution from all responsibility for fallout from that. They are what controls the drive for introduction of the TPPA trade ‘agreement’.

Families of Pike River Mine Disaster Victims Release Expert Plan for Safe Re-entry

Families of some of the victims of the 2010 Pike River mine explosion have submitted an experts’ report to Parliament in a bid to stop Solid Energy from sealing the “crime scene” forever.

The report was written by David Creedy, vice-chairman of the United Nations group of experts on coal mine methane, and Bob Stevenson, a former mines inspector in Britain.

The report has been peer-reviewed and endorsed by Britain’s leading mines rescue expert, Brian Robinson, and mining ventilation experts John Rowland and Roy Moreby.

Moreby has advised Solid Energy, which plans to seal the mine drift, on re-entry of Pike River.

Pike River Blockade Ends but the Protest Continues

Monk said he was “over” the mining firm since chief executive Tony King refused to sit down and listen to what the families’ experts had to say.

“I don’t want anything to do with Solid Energy. They have been uncooperative. They are bullies. I will only deal with the Government from now on.”

He hoped to bring the expert who had written the new plan for safe re-entry to NZ for a meeting with Prime Minister Bill English.

Please Sign Our Petition to Stop the Sale of Horowhenua’s Community Housing

Stop the Sale of Horowhenua’s Community Housing

Campaign created by
Pam Vernon
EnvirowatchHorowhenua
Stop the Sale of Horowhenua's Community Housing

FROM THE NEW MAYOR, MICHAEL FEYEN who is in support of keeping our housing stock:“I support retaining community housing and obtaining the housing nz stock as well. HDC, iwi And Grey Power could form a trust or lease agreement:) HLC could conduct apprenticeships around building, plumbing, electrician, painters, etc to maintain and upgrade the increased housing stock. Great potential for HDC employment and community, with a business case:) I trust this petition gets support as it is vital for our districts future that we have affordable housing.”   

NOTE: In spite of his support the remainder of the Council is not in agreement on this.


THE PETITION
The Horowhenua District Council is tendering our stock of community housing for sale to an alternative community housing provider. Grey Power however, believes that provision of affordable housing must remain a core activity for central and local government…”The proposal to sell pensioner housing, a key determinant of community wellbeing, is a direct antithesis to community wellbeing”.

We also see the withdrawal of affordable housing for the elderly and disabled as a backward step especially in light of growing homelessness in our country. We believe that in the longer term, an alternative provider will place economic factors above caring for the elderly and therefore request that they halt the tendering of these properties for sale.

Why is this important?

In April this year the Horowhenua District Council announced it was tendering their stock of community housing for sale to an alternative community housing provider.

The justification given by councils NZ wide, including, Horowhenua, to cease providing housing, has been that Government withdrew its responsibility in this respect (including funding) some time back.

HDC insist they’ve identified that “the ‘most sustainable’ way forward for delivering pensioner housing was to transfer the stock and the responsibility to a housing provider that had the focus and resources to respond to the housing needs of the district.” At the same time they say they “… want to ensure that community housing in Horowhenua remains accessible and affordable, and is also connected to services that enhance social connectedness and wellbeing.”

Horowhenua’s Grey Power however, disagrees saying it is their belief that provision of affordable housing must remain a core activity for central and local government. “The proposal to sell pensioner housing, a key determinant of community wellbeing, is a direct antithesis to community wellbeing” they say, and “a council is in a position to see issues across its district and should have concerns about its constituency … a social housing provider will not have the same view.”

We also see the withdrawal of affordable housing for the elderly and disabled as a backward step. HDC state on their Positive Ageing Action Plan that “Horowhenua is a district that embraces its older residents as a highly valued integral part of the community”. We would like to see that plan include the option of the ongoing provision of affordable housing for the elderly, especially in the light of growing homelessness in our country. Handing over this responsibility to private and corporate interests is not going to guarantee they remain housed. A business will always strive to maximize profits and not to ensure the housing of the more vulnerable. It is simply not in their mandate. We therefore do not believe that any clause of sale that stipulates the needs of the elderly be considered will be effective, and that any such provision would eventually be discarded in favour of economic interests.

In line with their pledge to partnership, HDC have said that iwi and current tenants were consulted. Public feedback however is not confirming this. We would like to see some transparency on this pre sale history.

If you agree that the provision of community housing should remain a part of Council’s responsibility please sign our petition.

The “Brilliance” of John Key

 

 

John-Key-Swimming-Pool-Metro-2006Dave Kennedy

Leaders of other conservative Government’s look at John Key’s continued popularity with envy. New Zealand’s National Government has the same agenda as most other conservative governments and yet despite New Zealand’s richest blatantly continuing to capture a greater share of the country’s wealth and government services being increasingly reduced and privatised, the Prime Minister remains popular…

John Key’s government has managed to continue the work begun by Ruth Richardson and has obviously learned from Jenny Shipley’s mistake of not ensuring public acceptance of drastic welfare change. Ruth Richardson’s Mother of All Budgets is regarded as the most significant step in dismantling our welfare state. Drastically cutting welfare benefits was a deliberate strategy to drive down wage costs. It was Richardson’s belief that maintaining unemployment at around 5% and keeping welfare payments low, workers would then be more likely to accept lower wages. Child poverty was around 8% pre 1991 but escalated to 15% by 1992. While there was some reduction under the previous Labour Government, with the introduction of the Working for Families tax credit, child poverty is now close to 30% in 2016.
