People can tell themselves that they didn’t see where things have been heading for the last 17 months, but they did. They saw all the signs along the way. The signs were all written in big, bold letters, some of them in scary-looking Germanic script.
They read: THIS IS THE ROAD TO TOTALITARIANISM
I’m not going to show you all those signs out again. People like me have been pointing them out, and reading them out loud, for 17 months now. Anyone who knows anything about the history of totalitarianism, how it incrementally transforms society into a monstrous mirror image of itself, has known since the beginning what the “New Normal” is, and we have been shouting from the rooftops about it.
We have watched as the New Normal transformed our societies into paranoid, pathologized, authoritarian dystopias where people now have to show their “papers” to see a movie or get a cup of coffee and publicly display their ideological conformity to enter a supermarket and buy their groceries.
We have watched as the New Normal transformed the majority of the masses into hate-drunk, hysterical mobs that are openly persecuting “the Unvaccinated,” the official “Untermenschen” of the New Normal ideology.

“Hands off our kids!”
by Paul Joseph Watson
Greece has become the latest European country to be hit with mass protests after the government announced the unvaccinated would be banned from visiting bars, restaurants, cinemas and other public places.
Thousands of demonstrators descended on Athens and Thessaloniki, with crowds chanting “Hands off our kids!” and holding signs that said “We say no to vaccine poison.”
All nursing home staff and hospital workers will be mandated to get the vaccine from August 16, while hospital workers also face losing their jobs unless they get the compulsory jab from September.

As we reported on Monday, France President Emmanuel Macon announced new COVID measures that included mandatory COVID vaccines for health workers, a “health pass” to access the cinema, trains, restaurants as well as in hospitals, retirement homes, medical and social establishments, but also in planes, trains and buses for long trips, curfews, and even “pension reform” where people will “have to work longer and retire later.”
Today was Bastille Day in France, and many people took to the streets to protest, and many clashed with police. Here are some of the videos appearing on Twitter.

TRANSLATION: More than 3000 people in one place for freedom of vaccination choice. No to the exclusion of children from schools due to vaccination. As long as there is risk and harm from vaccine there must be freedom of choice. Health is not a joke, freedom of choice and safety. The state recognizes vaccine damage in law 210/92, following the post-vaccination death of the two Tremante brothers. Despite this, thousands of cases are still pending for compensation, including deaths.

Readers from Italy have been contacting Health Impact News this past week (June, 2017), asking us to cover the massive demonstrations happening throughout Italy to protest a new mandatory vaccine law. This news has been censored from the U.S. corporate media.
In an unprecedented way, the decree-law proposed by the Minister of Health has been signed by the sitting Italian president Sergio Mattarella. Only four vaccines were mandatory in Italy, now that number triples to 12.
No other decree-law has moved so fast in the Italian legislative system, the reasons of such hurry are incomprehensible considering that the Istituto Superiore Di Sanità (the local version of the CDC) has declared that contrary to what stated in the decree itself there is no objective urgency. There are no epidemics, the number of cases of measles or meningitis in the current year have been substantially lower than the previous year.
Thousands of parents have protested the new law this past June 3rd, protests and marches have taken place in 21 Italian cities spread across the nation. A national protest is scheduled for this Sunday June 11th.
The translated full text of the decree-law is found here.
The new law apparently has severe consequences for parents who fail to comply, including the possibility of having their children taken away from them. In addition to public outcry, there appears to be strong political opposition to the law as well.
Elisabetta Bressan, an Italian commenting on Facebook writes:
Protests are going to increase here, as our Government has announced… a law to introduce 12 mandatory vaccines. The law…. was announced by our Health Ministry to be as follows: 12 mandatory vaccination needed to have access to pre-school system (age 0-6): no vaccination, no enrollment, no exceptions; for mandatory school (age 0-16) if kids were not vaccinated parents should pay a penalty between 500€ and 7.500€ per year, if you cannot afford it, you’ll be refer to Jouvanile Court, that could suspend your parents rights to get your children vaccinated. A national protest is envisaged in Rome on June 11.
This will start within the next school year (September 2017); it has been calculated that more then 800,000 kids will need to receive a massive vaccination in a very little time.
As you know, Italy had been chosen in 2014 as leading Country for the WHO world vaccination campaign co-financed by Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, therefore what happen here can affect also other countries.
Leaving a lucrative career as a nephrologist (kidney doctor), Dr. Suzanne Humphries is now free to actually help cure people.
In this autobiography she explains why good doctors are constrained within the current corrupt medical system from practicing real, ethical medicine.
One of the sane voices when it comes to examining the science behind modern-day vaccines, no pro-vaccine extremist doctors have ever dared to debate her in public.
One of the biggest myths being propagated in the compliant mainstream media today is that doctors are either pro-vaccine or anti-vaccine, and that the anti-vaccine doctors are all “quacks.”
However, nothing could be further from the truth in the vaccine debate. Doctors are not unified at all on their positions regarding “the science” of vaccines, nor are they unified in the position of removing informed consent to a medical procedure like vaccines.
The two most extreme positions are those doctors who are 100% against vaccines and do not administer them at all, and those doctors that believe that ALL vaccines are safe and effective for ALL people, ALL the time, by force if necessary.
Very few doctors fall into either of these two extremist positions, and yet it is the extreme pro-vaccine position that is presented by the U.S. Government and mainstream media as being the dominant position of the medical field.
In between these two extreme views, however, is where the vast majority of doctors practicing today would probably categorize their position. Many doctors who consider themselves “pro-vaccine,” for example, do not believe that every single vaccine is appropriate for every single individual.
Many doctors recommend a “delayed” vaccine schedule for some patients, and not always the recommended one-size-fits-all CDC childhood schedule. Other doctors choose to recommend vaccines based on the actual science and merit of each vaccine, recommending some, while determining that others are not worth the risk for children, such as the suspect seasonal flu shot.
These doctors who do not hold extreme positions would be opposed to government-mandated vaccinations and the removal of all parental exemptions.
In this article, I am going to summarize the many doctors today who do not take the most extremist pro-vaccine position, which is probably not held by very many doctors at all, in spite of what the pharmaceutical industry, the federal government, and the mainstream media would like the public to believe.
Excellent post here from Snoopman.net …. some truths on Ihumātao. Media predictably play the race card on this one big time but then what better card to cover up the facts? EWR
“This three-page letter calls out New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern for her continuance of successive governments’ maintenance of a Neo-Feudal economic warfare paradigm inflicted on New Zealanders in 1984. Steve Edwards cites The Snoopman’s “Deep History of Ihumātao – The Fletcher-Rockefeller-Rothschild Dynasties Connection” — which reveals the links between Fletcher Building Limited’s corporate ancestor, Fletcher Challenge, and the Neo-Feudal Siege of New Zealand that occurred from 1984 to 1994. This economic warfare reset was inflicted to make New Zealand into a ‘Switzerland of the South Pacific’ Utopia for centimillionaires, billionaires and transnational corporations to exploit, undermine Māori land reform and sovereignty aspirations and replace democratic governance with a high-tech Neo-Feudal technocratic jurisdiction, he argues.
Edwards sketches the links between the David Rockefeller-chaired Council on Foreign Relations, his Trilateral Commission brainchild and his Neo-Feudal cronies at the global policy shaping conclave, the Bilderberg Group, and their machinations to capitalize on the 1973-1974 Oil Price Shocks engineered by the Rockefeller-Kissinger-Bilderberger Nexus to weaken resistance to the coming Neo-Feudal siege of entire economies. Ultimately, the ‘Unitary Plan’ which embroiled Ihumātao in the Auckland Council’s Special Housing Area zoning for Fletcher Building’s intensive residential housing project, was part of a long-range scheme dating back to the 1980’s to re-make Auckland as a World City. The forging of huge cities suits the exploitative business models of transnational corporations, whom require Neo-Feudal jurisdictions to facilitate high capital mobility, organize public debt-funded infrastructure, and accommodate large pools of excess labour.
Last weekend saw French people stage huge protests against the Macron government’s plans to slash their pension entitlements.
It was the 59th consecutive weekend of such protests.
December has also seen the country in a state of ‘grève interprofessionel’ – a general strike – across a wide range of professions, from the nations’s rail-workers to the Paris Opéra’s ballet dancers.
The scale of the protests and strike have been huge, with around 800,000 workers participating in the strike and massive crowds on the streets in Paris and elsewhere. And the government’s response has descended into brutality:

VIDEO: “Once the rats have gone down to negligible numbers” says Maggie Barrie, (former Min of Conservation) “then we’ll use traps” … ? Um…. 60 years on and still we have rats? It isn’t working Maggie. A blind person could see that. We still have rats and our native Kea are nearly extinct. Perhaps the Dept of Conservation would be better named the Dept of Destruction.
Hunter, Harvey Karaitiana, interviewed in the video says he came across 1080 by accident in the 1950s when he saw small fixed wing aircraft spreading something in the Wainui bush near Taupō. Upon investigation he saw green stuff all over the ground. Days afterwards he found dead birds and animals in the bush. Remember this is a Class 1A Ecotoxin that kills all oxygen breathing life including humans, and it appears the public had no warning on the drop! Mr Karaitiana wrote to the local newspaper at the time expressing his concerns.
Note: Mr Karaitiana says they are still treating the same land with 1080, and reports that whereas once he would hear Morepork and other birds in the area, he no longer does. They are all gone he says. Department of Conservation? Really?
The poison 1080, to our Māori people he said, is one of the most deadly poisons out that we know of.
And DoC by the way declined to be interviewed.

If you are new to the 1080 poisoning program, here is a good article to start with …
A must watch also 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.
And the 1080 pages at the main menu, particularly the sub tab, ‘suspected 1080 poisoning cases’. Finally, remember what the retired MD Charlie Baycroft said recently …‘if you die from 1080 poisoning, nobody will know because the Ministry of Health is bullying NZ Doctors into not testing for 1080′.
The House of Representatives Standing Committee on Communications and the Arts has commenced a parliament-first inquiry into 5G network technology.
The announcement follows months of public outcry from concerned citizens and community action groups over the rollout of 5G in Australia.
5G refers to the fifth generation of mobile technology, in line with the International Mobile Telecommunications-2020 (IMT-2020) Standard of the International Telecommunications Union and the associated releases of the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP).
According to the official page, the committee will conduct research to:
Chairing the reviewing committee is Nationals MP Dr David Gillespie, alongside Deputy Chair, Labor MP Ed Husic and six committee members.
Interestingly, matters relating to national security are out of scope for this national inquiry.
In a media release, Dr Gillespie said “5G will transform the way we live and work, and provide opportunities for family life, industry and commerce” and the committee “want to hear about the opportunities and challenges of 5G”.
However, no date has been set for the committee to report back to the public.
The Australian government is also yet to formally respond to the announcement.
Communications Minister, Paul Fletcher, has assured Telstra that it is “backing high-speed 5G mobile network rollout plans” amid signs of a community backlash against the technology.
The government has promised a ‘stronger public stance’ over the technology’s safety.
Fletcher, who has been exposed as a former Director of telecommunications giant Optus, has met with executives for a demonstration of the high-speed 5G mobile networks several weeks ago, as the $42.6 billion telco continues to build the new infrastructure across the country.
A spokesman for Mr Fletcher declined to comment on the minister’s meeting with Telstra but said “the agency played an important role in providing authoritative advice to government and the community on matters of electromagnetic energy safety”.
This comes as growing groups of concerned citizens ramp up a campaign, which includes protests, council complaints, online petitions and flyers, against 5G technology and electromagnetic energy (EME) and radiation.
These national community action groups have formed to share information relating to 5G and to take action by hosting local events to connect with like-minded citizens.
The groups have staged protests in recent months across the country and have scheduled a number of protests and forums to oppose the rollout.
The government has been criticised for acting in the interests of telcos by some anti-5G groups, who are concerned the technology could lead to infertility and cancers.

“They came first for philosophical exemptions and I said nothing, because my kids are in private school. Then they came for religious exemptions and I said nothing, because I am not that kind of religious. Then they came for our medical freedom and I said nothing, because I could still home school. Then they came for me and took my children. And no one was left to speak up.” – Lavenda Memory
How a bill becomes a law: apparently, by enough good people who know better–doing nothing, saying nothing.
Yesterday, both SB276 and its trailer bill, SB714 passed through the California Assembly and Senate and were signed into law by Governor Gavin Newsom, catapulting the next civil rights movement into full swing, and setting the stage for a sweeping wave of medical tyranny and government overreach.
Medical freedom fighters came out in droves to decry the draconian bill SB276, peacefully occupying the assembly and the senate, until threatened with arrest and ordered to disperse from the latter.
Despite mainstream media portrayal, SB276 opponents are by and large not anti-vaxxers, but rather, ex-vaxxers and vaccine-hesitant mothers (and a few courageous fathers) with documented adverse reactions in themselves or their children that by the testimony of their own doctors has rendered them ineligible for further vaccinations.
Despite lack of coverage by every major media outlet, some of the California legislators who voted no and supported the protestors relayed to SB276 opponents that this was the largest outpouring of activism that they had ever witnessed for any bill during their political tenure.
In spite of the widespread opposition to the bill at the California Capitol, the viral #JUSTASKING and #SOS social media campaigns that lit up Governor Gavin Newsom’s Instagram page in yellow, and vocal outcries by parents across the nation, the bills were signed into law amongst pleas from medical freedom fighters, “No segregation–no discrimination–yes on education, for all!”.
Voting was divided squarely down party lines. These bills were passed thanks to unanimous yes votes by Democrats, revealing that their allegiance unequivocally lies with corporate interests over the constituents to which they are beholden on this issue.
Republicans voted no across the board, with some assembly members, such as Waldron, Mathis, and Melendez, cheering on the protestors as they chanted, “Moms know best!” from the rafters.
“It is quite stunning to watch liberals applauding censorship, particularly the muzzling of the bullied mothers of injured children in order to protect pharmaceutical products from criticism”.
-Robert F. Kennedy Jr.
Billionaire Bill Gates called for “a kind of global government” last month, arguing that the creation of such a system would be needed to combat major issues such as “climate change.”
In a recent interview with the German publication Süddeutsche Zeitung, Bill Gates made some disturbing comments in favor of world government.
Not only did Gates advocate global government, but he also spoke favorably of the UN and NATO, completely overlooking that they are a major force of oppression in the world.
NATO can’t even hold a meeting without thousands of people gathering in the streets to protest their actions. Someone as heavily involved in world affairs as Bill Gates should know all about this.
During the interview last month, Gates said,
Take the UN, it has been created especially for the security in the world. We are ready for war, because we have taken every precaution. We have NATO, we have divisions, jeeps, trained people. But what is with epidemics? How many doctors do we have as much planes, tents, what scientists? If there were such a thing as a world government, we would be better prepared. (emphasis added)
Not long ago this subject was considered a total conspiracy theory, but now one of the richest people in the world is openly suggesting that this is a good idea.
Governments are generally a pretty bad idea; even when they are small they can still do a tremendous amount of damage. So when a government rules the entire planet, there is no telling what type of atrocities it will be capable of.
Aside from his founding of computing giant Microsoft, a corporation which has worked hand in hand with the NSA to eviscerate privacy, Gates’ role in the destruction of health worldwide is made obvious by the companies he invests in.
A breakdown of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation’s 2012 tax return by Mother Jones reveals billions in funding to corporations such as Coca-Cola, McDonald’s, Burger King and Kentucky Fried Chicken.
Other groups receiving major cash include private prison company the GEO Group Inc., military contractor Dyncorp, a major player in human trafficking, and nearly every top oil company.
A major focus of the Gates Foundation has also been invested in vaccination campaigns, although Western media has completely ignored major ethical issues brought up by medical experts in countries such as India, where more than 47,500 children were paralyzed shortly after one of Gates’ campaigns.
Just last year, India’s Supreme Court began investigating Gates involvement in a vaccine trial that resulted in the deaths of several young girls.
Everything from gun control, Common Core and geoengineering, the practice of spraying toxic particles into the stratosphere to block the sun’s rays, has received millions in funding from Gates.
Gates has also taken heat for investing millions into biotech giant Monsanto, a corporation currently flooding foreign countries with genetically engineered crops.
In reality, the call for global government by Gates and other wealthy elitists has nothing to do with lifting up impoverished nations. Such a government would instead guarantee global surveillance, global wealth inequality and a world run by the exact corrupt interests currently consolidating wealth and power worldwide.
Thanks to Julie Williams for this link. The presenter Polly has a YT channel with much thought provoking material. This particular video is in my opinion an excellent overview of what is going on in France right now with the Yellow Vests movement. As she points out media is not reporting what is really going on & if you watch the video the YVs themselves accuse them of lying. No surprises there with MSM. Then there are the Police suicides which are not being reported. French Police taking their own lives? That speaks volumes. There have been so far 8 protester deaths with thousands injured & growing. She speaks also of a man who went in to defend Police harassment of his pacifist wife, who when later charged, was given the financial support of the YVs for legal costs. The establishment then froze that bank account containing the funds so they could not access them. Now this is fascism and Polly refers to a survey funded by CEs supporting their belief that corporate CEs have the means by which to bring about order. This she says, is a fascist takeover by corporates & is fitting with the ‘rules based World Order’ as opposed to ‘law based’. Corporations can’t make laws but they do make rules & they have the means already to enforce them. Take away people’s ability to defend themselves by freezing their bank accounts, or destroy their livelihood by firing them or closing their bank accounts. This has already happened in NZ historically.

SURVEYS SHOW THE UNMISTAKABLE TREND!
32% KIWIS OPPOSED TO 1080 POISON IN 2001
85% KIWIS OPPOSED TO 1080 POISON IN 2018
By Carol Sawyer
The opinion polls show what is happening. A ‘Marlborough Express’ poll in September, 2018, showed 85% of nearly 4,000 people want 1080 BANNED.
The comments poll on ‘The Project NZ’ also in September, revealed even higher figures against 1080.. almost 90%.
The protests on September 8th, 2018, nationwide, despite being made up of mainly rural dwellers, had over 5,000 people out in the streets, in 45 townships, towns and cities!
Watch the video!!!
Here is the progression, according to surveys and polls:
In November, 2001, 32% were opposed to aerial 1080 poison.
In 2007, 43% were opposed and 12% were undecided.
In 2009, 43% were opposed and 14% undecided
In June 2016, a DoC survey of 4,200 people showed 61% were opposed to aerial poison.
In September, 2018, 85 % of 3,900 people in a ‘Marlborough Express’ survey wanted 1080 banned.
On October 29, 2017, I wrote :
NEARLY TWO THIRDS OF NEW ZEALANDERS ARE NOT COMFORTABLE ABOUT AERIAL 1080 POISONING !
See page 8 of the 2016 DoC survey below. This was a survey of 4200 people, in June 2016 :
“The spread of poison bait and herbicides via aircraft are methods of pest control that the majority of the public do not feel comfortable using.”
This figure of 61de% of New Zealanders not happy with aerial poisoning is up from 43 % seven years previously. I suspect the figure will be a lot higher now.
Also, 72% of those surveyed do NOT see deer as a major conservation threat !
It makes the current spate of attacks on the credibility of anti-1080 people by DoC staff, and Director-General of Conservation Lou Sanson, more understandable. Opposition to their massive 1080 poisoning programme is becoming a very big worry for the authorities
Here is the relevant section from a Royal Society Journal with regard to figures in 2009, (43% opposed, 14% undecided).
That document’s link is below the excerpt, and is well worth a look. It is called “Opposition to aerial 1080 poisoning for control of invasive mammals in New Zealand: risk perceptions and agency responses”!!!
“Public concerns over risks and agency messages”
Within the last decade public opposition to the use of 1080 has risen. A national survey in November 2001 (UMR 2001 UMR 2001 . Omnibus results: favourability rating and support for 1080 use (November 2001) . UMR Research Limited , Auckland , , New Zealand . [Google Scholar]) found that 52% of the general public supported 1080 use while 32% were opposed. A UMR Omnibus survey in 2007 asked the question ‘Do you support or oppose the use of 1080 poison to control the impact of possums on native forests and birds, and to control the spread of tuberculosis?’ Only 45% of respondents supported use and 43% opposed, with 12% undecided (Harry Broad, pers. comm. 2009). When asked this question in April 2009, after the ERMA hearings, 43% supported its use, 43% opposed, and 14% were undecided (Harry Broad, pers. comm. 2009). Māori were much less supportive than non-Māori. Although the applicants had hoped that presenting new information on 1080 would reduce public concerns, the extensive ERMA re-assessment process had not done so. Public opinion on any given topic can be influenced by many factors, but ERMA had identified that users of 1080 were partly responsible due to poor communication and consultation practices.”

So it’s now a crime to go to bat for your insurance claim? To insure your home & actually expect to be paid out? Interesting given the revelations we have now of the goings on behind the quake in the first instance. Kiwi land is fast becoming a Police state. With this carry on it’s looking more and more like communist Russia.
This article is from newshub.co.nz and includes a video
A Newshub investigation has found Christchurch earthquake victims trying to settle insurance claims with the Government were spied on by private investigators, in operations paid for by the taxpayer.
The investigation today forced the Government to act, opening an inquiry into its insurance company, Southern Response.
The operation, running from February 2014 to April 2017, cost $177,349 of taxpayers’ money. It’s not known how many people were spied on, but hundreds of people were involved in protests following the Christchurch quakes.
Cam Preston, a father, chartered accountant, and victim of the Christchurch earthquake, was also deemed a “threat” who needed to be monitored.
Mr Preston was one of the main targets of an operation set up by Southern Response using “protection agency” Thompson and Clark Investigations.
The security firm’s ‘security risk management proposal’ warns of “the threat of a sustained, directed campaign by issue-motivated groups and individuals of either legal or illegal nature.”
It says it provides what’s called “an on-going real-time situational awareness”.
“This approach has proved the best rewards for our clients and allowed them to keep a ‘rod in the water’.”
As is the custom of sold-out NZ media, there’s been little if any mention of this intended drop of deadly 1080 tomorrow anywhere. The lure baits have already been dropped today (13th Feb 17) to get our wildlife eating and trusting, while tomorrow they will be munching on genuine deadly 1080, courtesy of Mt Hutt Helicopters. For more information on NZ’s shameful consumption of 1080 (largest consumer in the world) that is banned in most other countries visit our 1080 pages. Particularly, watch the Poisoning Paradise doco by NZ’s local Graf brothers, links are there on the page. (For other articles and links on 1080 and how effective it appears to have been in destroying our birdlife, our wild deer, unsuspecting pets and even farm animals, go here). It has even been dropped directly into our waterways.
NOTE: see further down for an update, the drop is to start on the 15th.
Remember too to name and shame the contractors who drop this poison. It has to stop.
Here is the information from the one newspaper that has published the info, greystar.co.nz :
By Laura Mills
The largest 1080 poisoning operation in New Zealand conservation history is about to get under way in northern Buller and Tasman.
The Department of Conservation is planning to carry out aerial 1080 pest control over about 270,000 ha of the Kahurangi National Park this spring as part of its Battle for Our Birds predator control programme to protect native species from a plague of rats and stoats.
It was met with protests outside DOC’s Takaka office this week.
The cost of the aerial drop was about $4.3 million, DOC spokeswoman Fiona Oliphant said.
It is the largest area in DOC’s Battle for Our Birds predator control programme, and has been broken up into six operational blocks of between about 20,000 and 60,000ha.
The Kahurangi operation is one of 25 confirmed Battle for Our Birds operations using aerially-applied 1080 poison over about 680,000ha of conservation land to knock down rising predator numbers fuelled by the unusually heavy seeding in South Island beech forests.
Six operations have been completed. The largest operational block completed to date is 30,000ha at Waitutu forest, in Southland.
DOC Motueka conservation services manager Mark Townsend said it was estimated that without pest control, rat tracking levels would reach 100% in November in parts of Kahurangi National Park.
Rat tracking levels increased from 54% in May to 90% in August in the Fyfe River area, from 31% to 51% in the Cobb Valley, from 43% to 78% in the Waingaro River area, and from 34% to 63% in the Oparara Basin, at Karamea.
“We are particularly concerned to safeguard threatened populations of whio, great spotted kiwi, kea, kaka, rock wren, long-tailed bats and powelliphanta snails.”
The drop includes the Wangapeka-Upper Karamea. Aerial drops are planned over 45,000ha in the Fyfe, Owen, Wangapeka, Crow and upper Karamea catchments in south-eastern Kahurangi National Park. An aerial operation was last carried out in the Wangapeka catchment in 2011.
DOC said yesterday this was its largest poison operation and it was checking to see if it was larger than previous Animal Health Board poisonings.
See below for maps of DOC’s intended poison drop.
NOTE: In response to denials from the public that this is happening the pre feed drops started on 14th Feb according to contacts in the area:
Notification of commencement of aerial application of non toxic cereal prefeed pellets at Parapara
On behalf of OSPRI New Zealand and the Department of Conservation, Vector Control Services wish to advise that helicopters will begin the aerial application of non toxic cereal prefeed pellets to the Parapara treatment area as part of DOC’s 2016 “Battle for our Birds” beech mast response.
The operation will commence from first light on 15 February 2017

Help spread the word on all the untruths we have been told – we are about exposing corruption and lies! Use the share buttons! Thank you!
Our mainstream media is carefully conveying the impression that those opposed to the TPPA are a rag tag bunch of trouble stirrers (all 32,000 of them) who are anti trade. Not so. What folks are most anti on is that the whole deal has been negotiated in SECRET. And see the map above of the many other nations that protested. Mainstream media is doing its best to shape up a bad public perception of any opposition to this trade agreement. On the 4th, the day of the protest here in NZ, the Herald invited comments to their Facebook page and bloggers found (myself included, and not for the first time) that all comments were blocked, as also was the option to share their info. They relented eventually, published a few comments then closed it to further discussion. Six media giants now own 90% of our media, controlling what we read, watch or listen to. Still think we have a democracy?
See here a list of notable people and organizations who are also against the signing. Our own Dr Jane Kelsey for one, and US Senator Elizabeth Warren is yet another (but hang what would these women know about it?) and in Germany a quarter of a million folks marched there against O’Bama’s Free Trade Agreement. And Key calls us ‘rent-a-crowd’! We are being conned folks!
Paul Henry interviews Prof Jane Kelsey
[VIDEO AT SOURCE]
newshub.co.nz Although the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement is being signed today, there’s still a long way to go before it becomes set in stone.
Auckland University Professor of Law Jane Kelsey an ardent opponent of the deal says it’s important that protesters keep letting the Government know they are unhappy with it.
“The Government has turned a deaf ear not just to the analytical work that we’ve done, but to the views of people throughout the country,” Dr Kelsey told the Paul Henry programme this morning. “We’ve had big protests, as you know, peaceful protests, family-friendly protests throughout the country over the last couple of yearsâ€¦ people saying again ‘Don’t sign, we don’t want this deal’.”
As a small country, New Zealand’s fate will be particularly influenced by the deal, she says.
“For us it does make a difference and from what I hear from people internationally, the opposition in New Zealand is the strongest of anywhere.”
And even though pen is being put to paper today, there is still a lot more work to be done before the deal is pushed through.
“What the Government is going to sign today, and it will sign it no matter what people say, is not going to be the end of the deal because the current text cannot get through the US Congress,” says Dr Kelsey.

Things are warming up on the TPPA front with plans by the powers that be to sign on 4th February and it’s rumoured … at the Skytower. They will be keeping that under wraps for sure. I’m just mailing out the public notices regarding events from FB who have asked folks to share. Likewise do share these notices, email to your friends, tell the neighbours. The more on board the better. There are NZ wide meetings you may consider attending if possible. For further updates here go to the TPPA news page. Do please let me know if I’ve missed anything or if there’s anything you’d like shared, either here or on FB if you’re not a member. EnvirowatchRangitikei
A blogger writes … “So as some of you may or may not be aware. Our country is about to be sold on February 4th. Informers from Chile say the signing of the TPPA will be held here @ the skytower in Auckland New Zealand. When it is signed, our basic human rights will be stripped of us! They will sell the land, our home to foreign countries, more mining, water and air rates, prohibited to grow your own organics, loom seeds will be banned, prohibited to live off grid, not allowed to feed and clothe homeless, or to help poverty, etc etc.. as if they want to decrease population and destroy our mother earth sooner..shit that’s in humane! NZ citizens are calling for a march larger than ever. If you care about your children’s future, seek out sources for more info. And take one last stand!
Even though the TPPA may commence…as Tangatawhenua, we have to live trying to prevent such events, in respect of our forefathers who dedicated their lives for our current slice of freedom. And also regarding the future of our Pepe’s…please don’t ignore this.” SOURCE
A massive turnout of kiwis at 17 actions around the country have sent a strong message to the Government saying ‘TPPA, Don’t Sign’, according to It’s Our Future.
“The Government has spent the last five weeks since TPPA negotiations concluded on a comprehensive PR mission to tell New Zealanders that this deal is supposedly in their best interests. Today, over ten thousand kiwis nationwide proved that PR mission has failed,” said It’s Our Future spokesperson Edward Miller.
“New Zealanders have learnt not to swallow the ‘Trust Me’ propaganda peddled by Minister Groser,” said Edward Miller.
“For the past six years we’ve been told about a gold-plated El Dorado trade bonanza. This has failed to materialise, yet the corporate wishlist has weaved its way through the completed text.”
“Now that we have the TPPA text it’s becoming clear that this deal as is bad as we’ve been expecting. Kiwis haven’t been fooled,” said Miller.
With failed talks in Hawaii recently with regards to the free trade agreement, Kiwis turned out en masse today in many parts of the country to protest the whole deal that has thus far been carried out in secret. Ostensibly a free trade deal, it is a doorway that will give corporations open slather to sue us if we threaten their profit making margins … something they are already doing in other countries. Educate yourself on this issue … it is important. Here are links to various news reports throughout the country.
“The thing about this crowd is there’s children, there’s babies, there’s Maori there’s people from India, there’s trade unionists, there’s health professional, politicians, there’s professors, singers. It’s amazing. All of New Zealand is represented here. There’s no group you could say didn’t turn up today.” NZ Herald
“Documentary filmmaker Bryan Bruce sent a clear message to Tim Groser and the National Party today on the grounds of Parliament: ‘If they sign this deal they will be gone in the next election. We will not forget and we will not forgive them… ‘ ” SOURCE
