Sent this complaint this morning, couldn’t get it off my mind, so best to do it and get it sent, letter one of my best I reakon. It’s a red tape war and I’m a red tape whore (c) ReFuSe

PO Box 2661
It is with the deepest regret and despair I write this complaint after 17 years attempting to get the health care, welfare, housing and justice I am entitled to as a disabled victim of crime in New Zealand. A United Nations Human Rights inspector I met at Te Papa told me to keep making formal complaints so there is a paper trail to follow. Although I am quite sure this valid complaint will fail and I will never get the justice and protection required as a disabled Civil Society Actor – defined by the UN Civil Society Handbook.
Years of study, valid complaints of injustice and experience have shown all laws established after the 1984 takeover by radicalised American neo-liberal economic terrorists in New Zealand are designed to defeat justice for the ‘purposely impoverished and persecuted then exploited poor local population’. Commissions are poor man’s justice – ie no justice at all – in fact I find them more proof of widespread government corruption and injustice in a sector.
This complaint is justified, as are the other complaints I have made, all ignored of course. Sadly I found myself, after one year studying law at Victoria University 2001, in a 17 year battle for justice for myself and other purposely impoverished, persecuted, criminally neglected victims of crime and trauma. Mostly with ACC, however in fighting for those things I am entitled to under ACC law I was exposed to the extent of neo-liberal/Libertarian corruption and HATE in our society. HATE that grows every day while our most basic constitutional laws are violated (please refer to the Imperial Laws Application Act 1988) – while multiple UN international laws (signed ratified treaties) are also violated.
This complaint has its legal origins in Westminster Statute the 1st – common right be done to all rich as poor and the Magna Carta – no person shall be destroyed and every person shall have access to right and justice. I wrote a poem for the 800 year anniversary of the Magna Carta, it can be viewed online at http://jrmurphypoet.com/2015/06/800-years-a-poem-to-commemorate-the-magna-carta-2015/ I was also sent a copy of the speech by grossly corrupt Attorney-General Christopher Finlayson performed at a government comedy event to celebrate it.
I feel quite sorry for Judge Barbara Morris having to be the scapegoat for a judiciary who profit from illegally denying people with mental health issues professional health care and necessities of life (eg safe stable affordable housing).
On Thursday 23 May I was in court again trying to get a lawyer after waiting almost 18 months since my first valid protest against illegal police violence in January 2018. Judge Morris knows me quite well after nine years LEGALLY protesting against ACC illegally removing my entitlements and refusing to reinstatement them after winning TWO ACC reviews in 2010/11.
Judge Morris made an extremely inappropriate comment about me receiving counselling for the trauma ‘the rapist’ had caused. Firstly she is well aware from my protests that it is far more than counselling I am protesting about. It was established many years ago by health professionals and ACC that COUNSELLING is not sufficient treatment, care or rehabilitation in my particular sensitive claim. There are multiple reports that say this, along with documents I had sent to the judge prior to the hearing. As I am not allowed a lawyer I have been forced to do what I can to defend myself, even when it is extremely harmful and almost impossible to do it, due to impairments related to my disability – Complex PTSD. Part of my CPTSD involves being highly suicidal, CPTSD has a 60% mortality rate due to suicide – inciting someone to suicide is illegal.
Part of my CPTSD includes compounding trauma, so when I start bringing up all the deeply distressing injustices I have been subjected to through the justice system I start to become traumatised, have to self-harm etc so I don’t commit suicide (like I have to do multiple times writing this). It is a living nightmare many people in New Zealand are now forced to live with following introduction of neo-liberalism. Wairarapa, where I live, has the highest rate of self-harm in New Zealand, also highest rate of suicide, compulsory treatment orders and prescriptions for psychotropic drugs. I would imagine it also has the most extreme forms of inequality and elitism in New Zealand as well – they must be training rich children to hurt poor people at the multiple private schools here. The elitist hatred is quite obvious to the youth of our region, my children went through the public education system here and told me what they knew about the kids from private schools. It is even more obvious in our community through corrupt elitist neo-liberal organisations such as Trust House and the way ‘community leaders’ advance the rich and persecute the poor.
When I was interviewed by a lawyer from the Mental Health Inquiry last year she identified the worst elitism they had so far experienced, after meetings with local community and health leaders earlier in the day. She asked me why I thought it was happening and I told her about the private schools, bias media, inequality between richest and poorest and lack of housing (ie provision for disabled and poor of this region).
Elitism is illegal according to NZ Constitutional laws, I continue to wonder why the courts, lawyers and judges allow it. Although statistics about the punishment of beneficiaries (doing what they have to in order to survive and support their children) compared to the punishment of wealthy tax fraudsters tells the true story, also punishments for rapists/criminals who have wealthy powerful family connections).
Although the rape, sodomy and not guilty verdict (even when the rapist admitted in court to the jury of 10 white haired old men, one old woman with a blue rinse and one young woman who looked IHC) were what entitled me to ACC, my life-threatening CPTSD is a result of criminal neglect following the crime. I am/was a strong sensible person, bad stuff happens, I know that, I would have recovered from what happened to me if I had received the professional treatment care rehabilitation, safe housing and justice as required under ACC law – and multiple other laws I have read. I can read and comprehend what I read, my mental health issues since the event don’t make me a liar or stupid. In fact based on my extensive knowledge of traumatic stress disorders I would suggest years of severe neglect makes you more intelligent – fighting for your life does that.
Many people have been trying to force counselling onto me when the ACC rehabilitation plan illegally removed in 2009 involved around 12 hours a week with a multi-disciplinary team of health professionals and instructed/supported members of the community. I had an Occupational Therapist 2 hrs a week, Psychologist 1 hour, psycho-social rehab at a gym 6 hours, 3 hours a week with a mental health worker and 1 hour a month with a Buddhist massage therapist. I was six months into a 2 ½ year rehabilitation plan when it was illegally removed by ACC GP Peter Jansen. I have seen counsellors through ACC, they were ineffective, most of them would cry once they heard my current living situation, which they obviously could do nothing about, even though they knew it was extremely detrimental to the healing process for victims of crime (ie there are too many serious current traumas to deal with before they can deal with the rape trauma.)
Judge Morris should be completely focused on legalities of what is happening to me and how I am presenting in person and with the information I provide her. Her opinion as to my health needs, which she has voiced previously in a closed court based on the experiences of her beloved daughter, is not appropriate. I am a 54 year old women with children and responsibilities of running a household without support from my wealthy parents/family. (Note: my children have left home but of course still need me. My daughter had a life-changing car accident last week – sadly I was not able to be near her as I can’t afford the petrol to get to Whakatane where she now lives.) Being poor insures I am further marginalised, if I had the $10,000 in unpaid Independence Allowance ACC are currently withholding I would have been able to go and see her.
Last year lawyers at Masterton Court attempted to force me into something they referred to as a PINC court. Apparently Judge Morris was instrumental in setting this up for PEOPLE IN NEED (People In Need Court). I vehemently refused asserting I was no criminal, my actions in response to gross violations of my rights were completely legal. Also attempting to put me under the grossly corrupt/illegal Mental Health Act 1992 (at the height of National party neo-liberal corruption) to force me to take medication to control me was not going to happen if I could stop it. I am well aware of United Nations international law about my rights to refuse ‘medical treatment’ and why it was implemented after NAZI legalised experimenting on those they chose to persecute – namely disabled who couldn’t work at maximum productivity, govt rape victims, people with brown skin, homeless gypsies, homosexuals and jews.
It is interesting to note during consultations for the UN human rights process in New Zealand last year how 95% of the people participating were there about gross violations of human rights against people with mental health issues – particularly abuse victims. People who were not MENTALLY ILL, people who were MENTALLY INJURED as defined by ACC legislation. A normal brain and a normal person experiencing overwhelming trauma – overwhelming trauma that requires a safe place to heal/recover. With neo-liberalism requiring the privatisation and handing over of EVERYTHING TO ‘THE MARKET’, particularly state housing (which is a legal responsibility of the government under international and NZ law) the government stopped providing state housing and sold off everything they possibly could. In the Wairarapa they sold all state housing to either those people in the homes (if they could come up with the money for a deposit) or the ‘pub/gambling charity’ Trust House.
There is no need to say what I think of the grossly corrupted, deeply degrading and fraudulent charity industry after 30 years of neo-liberal economic religious beliefs and American Trump advisor Peter Thiel bragging how NZ is a Libertarian utopia – but I will anyway.
As you can see from this complaint it is a small/yet extremely significant moment in the gross injustices I experience in the justice, health and welfare systems since 2002. Currently I am excluded from all health services, I have no GP, no health care even when reports say I am very unwell, am disabled and been on invalids benefit for many years. I am not even allowed to phone Healthline I discovered recently, which is quite terrifying and I am sure related to formal complaints I have made about Compass Health board member, government contracted Bell Gully lawyer Simon Watt. Judge Barbara Morris knows about my allegations against Simon Watt, this is part of the information I have given to her in the past few months.
Judge Morris also knows I cannot get a lawyer and Forensic Mental Health assessors with conflicts of interest are being used to pervert the course of justice in my case. I currently have a complaint with the medical council about the last assessment and the three inappropriate assessors who agreed to assess me when Medical Council rules plainly state they should withdraw. I won’t go into that as I am becoming very distraught and had to self-harm again.
I am quite sure this complaint will be ignored, based on the past 17 years of valid complaints and rejections but if there is any remote chance ‘justice for the poor’ is returning to our legal system then I ask you to uphold my complaint. It seems strange a judge who has publicly identified that mentally ill and poor people are unjustly ending up in the court system and tried to do something about it is the one complained about – one of those neo-liberal abominations I often talk about in my work as a Civil Society Actor. If I had health care so I could return to ‘traditional paid work’ I wouldn’t have time to do as much as I do, wouldn’t you think those in power over me would do something to help me. Perhaps it is part of neo-liberalism for the government to violate the law in order to create jobs and profits for the justice industry and others.
Why ACC etc refuse me services was highlighted following the Christchurch Mosque shootings and the need for $millions in charity to support victims. Muslim victims of violent crimes getting help with money, housing, etc while local terrorised population get – counselling. We are No 1 in the world for domestic/flatmate violence, have been for many years due to illegal removal of state housing and people forced into unsafe unstable unaffordable living situations. I have expressed my resentment to Muslim groups involved about all the money and support they are getting. So far rich people have donated $11million, which is being held by government agency Victim Support. Once distributed to the victims of the mosque shootings, I imagine no more than 500 people directly affected that would be $22,000 each – enough for a deposit on a house (so long as they are not permanently disabled as people on welfare ARE NOT ALLOWED TO BORROW MONEY TO LIVE IN THEIR OWN HOME – a violation of disability legislation).
I hope with all my heart my complaint is acknowledge and addressed and in doing so will not only change my situation but the situation for approximately 1 million impoverished disabled victims who currently experience 80% of the crime in New Zealand. Sadly Jacinda Ardern deceitfully used these statistics in her propaganda marketing after the mosque shootings as an excuse for complaints in the news from mosque shooting victims.
Kia kaha and aroha to the poor and powerless.
Civil Society Actor
20 June 2018
Report by JR Civil Society Actor, Carterton, New Zealand.
Report to the NZ government to advise on their upcoming report on the UPR of Human Rights. Details of abuses of power and gross violations of human rights that deprive disabled mentally injured trauma/abuse victims from professional health care and necessaries of life.
The government knows what they are doing wrong, they perpetrate the abuses of power and corruption against people with mental health issues and people they purposely impoverished under neo-liberalism. I have sent so many reports, emails etc there is no need to tell you again. I will make that report to the UN directly during the UPR process. In this document I will outline those things in the area of justice and health that are essential to addressing serious violations of human, disabled and civil rights.
After 15 years of study and assessment of why I am being denied health care and justice it has become quite obvious the justice system for poor people with health and poverty issues is grossly corrupted under the present extremist neo-liberal (note this is not capitalist) system. The lack of separation of powers in disputes between poorest citizens and the crown/their contractors has led to years of injustice, in health, justice, banking, insurance, tenancies, police, human rights, etc. The only way to rectify this situation is bring all decisions in disputes against the crown under the High Court (or its own superior court) system. All other disputes should be under District Court – no exceptions. The New Zealand government and affluent business people (rich & powerful) have proven they cannot be trusted not to abuse their position of power.
The power imbalances MUST BE ADDRESSED in regard to these disputes/injustices between rich and poor – laws to keep the peace – much of which has been lost under neo-liberal terrorism (please refer to Terrorism Suppression Act).
There must be a dedicated public defender human rights unit with the equivalent resources of NZ government lawyers such as Meredith Connell and crown law. The current system is set up to destroy the ability of lawyers in the community to adequately defend their poorest, most vulnerable and powerless clients against the most powerful – especially the government. We are supposed to be all equal before the law and have equal access to justice, it is a terrorist act to destroy resources to poorest sector of the local population. This injustice causes death and harm – which is currently happening to disabled people with mental health issues. Who are also those purposely impoverished under neo-liberal economic theory.
In the past six months I have been denied care by a psychiatrist, psychologist, Occupational Therapist and counsellor, even though I have reports saying my mental health is that severe I require residential care. The police and court staff would also be able to advise of how severe my mental health is when I start self-harming in the cells, or singing, crying, wailing. They will also be able to attest to the deterioration in my ability to cope during the court process – after being dragged through it repeatedly for over a decade – all for non-violent protests trying to get these services I am entitled to.
I have made formal complaints about all these health providers refusing me care. This has been happening to me for many years, but over the past 9 months I was encouraged to try to get services again by a senior official at Ministry of Health – he failed and I have come out worse off and more terrified/phobic/disturbed. When I spoke to the Health & Disability Commission about being rejected from these services a few weeks ago (I have been rejected by ACC Occupational Therapists for the past 8 years) without explanation, I was told THEY DIDN’T DEAL WITH ACCESS TO SERVICES. Which is what they always say.
They refuse to discuss anything after that about other people getting these services while I was denied them. I believe they are denying me this care to punish me for making complaints and protesting using my art. I have made multiple complaints to police about what is happening to me, senior officers refuse to investigate or take a prosecution against ACC, who have illegally denied me health care and caused me so much suffering and harm – destroyed my life, my family.
The solutions are on my website, as I have been telling the government for many years, since I wrote the business plan for Mental Injury Services and my rehabilitation model Fence At the Top Of The Cliff. These are what is supposed to be happening currently but is being denied the vast majority, if not all of those people mentally injured by trauma, abuse and neglect. www.jrmurphypoet.com.
Also on my website are two books of poetry, those poems are for the people reading this and those who caused so much harm to so many vulnerable and innocent people.
The health system must be brought back under government control – privatization has proven Marxist theory accurate in that it advantages the rich and ends in the persecution and alienation of the poorest. These private health providers (and public mental health services) cannot be trusted to provide the professional health care New Zealand commonwealth citizens are entitled to under law and expect in a civil society.
All housing of people with health and poverty issues MUST BE brought back under government control. The market DID NOT adhere to United Nations treaties and constitutional laws and the government have been corrupt cruel, incompetent and unjust in not providing these necessities of life for large numbers of citizens. They use illegal BUDGETS to deny and restrict services, disability services, housing, basic necessities of life to so many people – laws and treaties require ALL PEOPLE TO GET THESE NECESSITIES, not just a few.
It is a Crime under Sections 150A and 151 of the Crimes Act to not follow the law and as a result cause harm, criminal negligence. That is what has happened to me and is happening to 1000s of other mentally injured abuse victims like myself. It is also a crime to not provide professional mental health services and experiment on people – like they have done for years with psychotropic drugs on those suffering under their economic model that conflicted with professional health models and laws.
The market has also proven it cannot provide meaningful work for people with disabilities and again this requirement under international treaty and laws like ACC, health and disability must be provided BY THE GOVERNMENT WHO SIGNED THE TREATIES and must adhere to Rule of Law. As well as the added requirement to not act unethically and immorally under rule of a monarch that is head of a Christian church. Please refer to my website and postings regarding regional mental health facilities and regional rehabilitation centres. Where the things I learnt at university about professional treatment care rehabilitation and justice are actually provided in a dignified and professional way to all who need it in their local community.
In the past few weeks I have tested my theory about mental health and been proven right yet again. I have phoned new sexual abuse help line and other suicide help lines, as well as Geneva Health etc trying to get services and very upset. They all hang up on me, they tell me they are only there for people with mild mental health issues, not for people like me who can’t get services. They all suggest I contact Health & Disability Commission but I just got turned down by them last week for another complaint of discrimination by police on my file. They passed the buck to the Privacy Commissioner not knowing I had contacted him at the same time and he told me wasn’t his responsibility, they could say what they wanted.
Also been turned down by a counsellor who I was told was going to assist me in seeing a GP – I currently don’t have one and havn’t been able to see one in almost two years, I have other health issues (please help me I’m scared, other mentally ill people get support to go to the doctor, why not me?). He was going to help me get back the Occupational Therapist etc so my care from 2009 could be REINSTATED as required by two ACC reviews. The counsellor told me that wasn’t his role – but refused to tell me what his role was supposed to be or what ACC told him – I know he had read a psych report of mine saying I was unwell and needed residential care. I have emailed him and asked him what his role was under Privacy Act but have had no acknowledgement.
I have so many stories of discrimination and abuses of mine and others rights, so many I have sent to politicians, justice organisations, etc, all ignored. Sometimes I think writing to politicians etc just helps them work out ways to not give people justice, professional co-ordinated treatment care rehabilitation and safe homes. Or perhaps avoid compensation payments to those they have harmed with their neo-liberal social experiment.
All this report on Human Rights abuses in New Zealand really wants to achieve is for the government to do what they say they do, according to professional health models, UN treaties and constitutional laws – why is that impossible in 21st Century New Zealand.
Kia kaha and aroha to us all
This email is to people I have been begging for help from for years (some more recent) the passive aggressives I call them (except my last lawyer Susie Barnes) and have had it confirmed they are evil and their passive inaction is too – the inaction of cowards and people who have blind faith in authority – which I do not and I’m no coward either.

Subject: The evil of passive inaction – Philip Zimbado
You people are evil and your systems are too, I do what I do because I am a hero until I die. I became a hero the first time I was arrested for chalking a poem on a building in Masterton. When the police officer told me to take my clothes & period soaked underwear & sanitary pad off so I could sit and wait in a short padded suit for mental health team with blood running down my leg for an hour. I stood their speechless, something snapped and I said “I’ll fight you for them.” Cop went away to talk to her boss and I didn’t have to remove them and I have NEVER REMOVED MY CLOTHES EVER AGAIN, EVEN WHEN DETAINED UNDER MENTAL HEALTH & NEVER WILL BE EITHER. I have had it threatened a few times and I end up curled up in corner of the room screaming at them, they are sexual perverts etc – they usually back off very quickly after that (I don’t do it purposely, its my extreme response when they suggest it, I am so terrified/degraded by what happened.)
After waiting for hours in a cell terrified and stripped of all dignity (where I had never been in my life) the CATT team turned up . Andrew Curtis-Cody came, he had been refusing me care for years and that day was no different so he went, said I’m not dealing with her, police looked at each other in disbelief because I was so suicidal and unwell. After he left they told me to get my clothes back on and let me leave to go back to my car and home with no services to my two school age children – cruelty and evil. (They pursued a charge of wilful damage for the chalk poetry for next three months before dropping them at the last minute, they have done that many times.)
I looked into this gross violation of my rights, demanding I am stripped naked, I was told it was only a policy and had not been put under Bill of Rights scrutiny – it was also done FOR MY OWN GOOD. When you watch Philip Zimbardo talking about how evil is done in the name of good you can see how I (all people with mental health issues) ended up having my most basic rights violated. That’s what police always said when they came to my home for WELFARE VISITS (dozens of them) DUTY OF CARE required it- even when I wrote multiple letters begging them not to, telling them it terrified me more. I even had a psychiatrist support what I was saying, police ignored it. Those people sending them were in health, justice, media & welfare agencies, all the people supposed to help me were sending police to terrorise me. I made criminal complaints to police under Sections 150A and 151 of Crimes Act, I was ignored – a crime is being committed and police are part of it – that sounds very similar to the abusive power systems in TED talk.
This ‘abuses of power’ information is over nine years old and other studies are much older than this – there are people in power in New Zealand who know mental health systems are abusive and do nothing. I have known this information for more than a decade because once you understand human instinct – social psychology – it never changes, just like the physiology of a body doesn’t. I have told 1000s of people what is happening and they have done nothing. I cried watching this TED talk (which I hadn’t actually seen before surprisingly) I’m the hero and you are evil, I was right and you are wrong. That can change if you listen to what I have been telling you and start doing something about serious abuses of power in mental health/justice system perpetrated against me and many other vulnerable mentally injured abuse victims.
I am sending this to many of those people who are legally charged with WATCHING THE STORE to stop abuses of power. It is interesting what Philip says about Iraqui prison and how those in authority put NORMAL/POORLY TRAINED/PEERS into these positions knowing they had created an environment for abuse. I truly believe from my 15 years of study and experience, there are people within New Zealand government/business community who DESTROYED (not reformed) the mental health system in 1980s to cause harm to both the community and those disabled by mental health issues.
Watching this, absorbing it and trying my best to stop HATING and LOATHING all of you. One thing Philip doesn’t understand, is how those staff in the mental health system are hired for the personality trait of PASSIVE INACTION and complete subservience to authority – no matter how many people are harmed. SOOOO many people I have told my story, they have shown concern, then said they couldn’t do anything – they participated in this evil. So many mental health prisoners who have turned on me and really hurt me. The worst people have always been case managers at ACC and senior staff at mental health services – I truly believe Andrew Curtis-Cody is a psychopath and I know many other people in our community do as well.
The way mentally ill people have/are being treated is evil and those who supposed to keep checks on those in power have completely failed, I believe to the point of criminal negligence. That is why the idea that Ron Paterson – being a leader in charge of WATCHING THE STORE in relation to health care of mentally ill people is grossly inappropriate and should be removed immediately from the mental health inquiry. In his position he violates the principles of Natural Law as he is definitely not unbias, especially when receiving $1400 a day on top of his history of failing to WATCH THE STORE. He allowed the torture suffering and deaths of so many with MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES and often those around them.
It will all be in my report to the government on human rights for the UPR. The solutions will be in the report I do to the United Nations only – as I know how grossly corrupt ‘you people are’. I do not trust you, when I think of the suffering and harm you have caused and how you have all blamed us, the victims, the suicidal, the violent, the child abusers. There is extensive evidence to prove women put in toxic inhuman environments without support and in the care of children will violently abuse them. OUr government created that environment on purpose, refuses to provide support these vulnerable powerless women need, then looks mortified when we have high rates of child abuse. And the stress men are under to provide when they can’t. Due to requirements of neo-liberalism to have high unemployment and a terrified working class.
PLEASE STOP IGNORING ME – THIS IS A CRIME – I AM SCREAMING FOR HEALTH CARE AND JUSTICE I AM ENTITLED TO UNDER NZ LAW. I AM BEING HARMED BY NOT GETTING HEALTH CARE I AM ENTITLED TO – I AM BEING HARMED FOR BEING FORCED THROUGH JUSTICE SYSTEM REPEATEDLY – I AM BEING HARMED – you are persecuting and subjecting me to criminal/medical negligence. I desperately need it to stop because I don’t want to die, I don’t want to be tortured and tormented until I’m driven mad, I want to have somewhere safe to live, I want to return to work and not be treated like worthless human sewage just for asking for things I am entitled to by law – God’s and man’s.

Mental Health Inquiry
Supplementary Report by Jayne Routhan
Dear Inquiry Team,
I have woken up two days after my report on mental health in New Zealand was sent and realise I havn’t given you my ‘expert’ assessment of why neo-liberal economic theory is so destructive in society. Also why I am being persecuted, marginalised and psychologically tortured for standing up for my rights and justice in this area by health & justice providers, the community, friends and family (except for a few activists like myself).
Firstly you must watch two important experiments, the Cambridge Prison Experiment and the Milgram Experiment. These illustrate very clearly how people change behaviour dramatically when put in positions of power or subservience (guards or prisoners). Also that 60% of the population will kill a person purely on encouragement from someone in authority even though they can hear that person screaming in agony (statistics that reduce significantly when the subject can actually see person).
Neo-liberalism is a failure because it creates too many unequal power relationships and when they become abusive/destructive to any person/group, law, morality and ethics is seen as a threat and persecution is the result.
I was deeply disturbed to find out only yesterday that Eric Crampton, who works for the Business Round Table/NZ Initiative (drivers of neo-liberalism in NZ), is now teaching a paper at Victoria University called PUBLIC ECONOMICS. An extremist, who has insulted and discredited me several times when I phoned him trying to discuss the damage this neo-liberal obsession is causing. The course outline begins by saying he teaches how to fit government into the new world economic environment – rather than what is supposed to happen that economic approaches are in line with civilised governments that have strict rules about treatment of citizens – via laws like Commonwealth Charter, Westminister Statute 1st, Magna Carta, Declaration on Human Rights and Economic Social and Cultural rights etc.
It needs to be made very clear governments and laws were created to KEEP THE PEACE – to stop the continuous injustices and violence (uncivilised behaviour) the strong perpetrated against the weak. It is one of our most basic instincts as animals and in 21st century ‘civilised’ society it creates the most horrendous cruelty if allowed.
Governments and laws were not created to advance the strong/rich/powerful and persecute the weak/poor/powerless. In a civilised just democracy majority rules, HOWEVER majority does not get to use government and laws to advance the rich and persecute the poor – which is what they are doing (which has been accelerated by the adoption of neo-liberal economic theories).
Inequality in and of itself is not a violation of human rights HOWEVER it is a gross violation of human rights to take a country from one of equality, where the poor are cared for as is their right, to one of inequality where the poor are purposely persecuted and wealthy are advanced. I would be very pleased to participate in any recorded public debate on this topic, at any time, with any legal academic ‘expert’ on this planet! Countries like New Zealand that were once far more caring and willingly compliant to United Nations international treaties/laws. We lead the world in caring for those less fortunate – now we lead the world in child suicide, self-harm, family violence & homelessness. I lay the blame for this at the feet of our legal profession, that third arm of democracy that is supposed to prevent the legislature and executive from persecuting citizens.
‘The majority’ are also not allowed to violate RULE OF LAW, most significantly constitutional laws that give power and protection to the weak and restrict abuses of power by the strong. At some time in our history people have understood this and defended constitutional laws with righteous devotion of a religion (which I do). Now neo-liberal terrorists (terrorism as defined by NZ laws I have read) manipulate, denigrate, discredit and complicate these laws so they can continue with their experimental/destructive economic theory. A theory which of course significantly advantages the strong/rich/powerful and disadvantages the weak/poor/powerless.
Not only does New Zealand government violate rule of law they change laws so they can advance rich and disadvantage poor – as I show on my website and can be seen in my treatment over the past 15 years (since I was mentally injured in a sex crime and refused health care I was entitled to and needed). Which is why it is still imperative I get a lawyer, justice and my day in court for those injustices I have suffered to be addressed in a court of law.
The failure of neo-liberal economic theory as a way of running a country/government is obvious in the increasing violence, injustice, addiction, suicide and poverty New Zealand and other neo-liberal countries are experiencing. While those who doing well and in power are firmly focused on others who are doing well and are in firm denial of the harm neo-liberlaism is causing. That is why trying to FIX the dysfunctional victims of this violence and harm (which is ongoing for 20% of the population) does not work. You can’t heal someone in an unsafe environment, under constant stress and you definitely can’t get them to BE RESILIENT and do it themselves.
It is my opinion from my 15 years of study, there are a group of extremist elites (the strongest) who understand what neo-liberal policies do to weakest in society. They continue promoting neo-liberalism BECAUSE it drives least fortunate of ‘us poor peasants’ mad and creates 1000s of jobs, generating $billions in mental health, drug company profits, justice, security. Jobs and money they needed to generate when they drove 100,000s decent manufacturing jobs out of New Zealand into the hands of other countries with few human/workers rights, jobs we once had.
Humans have been making their own shelter, clothing and food since the beginning of humans, we were never created to be sub-servient to other humans – we are equal, just like Christianity and our legal system tell us. The massive increase since 1970s in SERVICE jobs, RENTAL properties rather than home ownership, unemployment, selfishness/user pays and banks putting money/power into hands of people who have not worked for it, is INHUMAN and ILLEGAL. The environment poorest now supposed to live in is INHUMAN – forcing people from their homes/land on a regular basis IS TERRORISM TORTURE PERSECUTION.
My own situation of standing up to what I knew was wrong, illegal and immoral in area of mental health treatment and inequality etc reflects the treatment of the PRISONER who showed courage (Stanford Prison Exp) and stood up to the bad behaviour of the guards. Not only did the guards attack him, so did the other prisoners and the way it was set up so the rebellious prisoner was hated by the other prisoners IS EXACTLY what is happening in our society.
We must eliminate those aspects of neo-liberal economic theory from our society, that create this inequality and support protection of the strong/rich/powerful at the same time as harming the weak/poor/powerless. Some of that will require changing/removing/revoking laws adopted to implement neo-liberalism in 1980s New Zealand (I contend these laws were ALWAYS illegal, which is why they should be revoked). Some of it will require strengthening of our constitutional laws and simplification of our justice system in this area – which I truly believe has been complicated in order to corrupt it. That is why Westminster Staute the 1st and Magna Carta are recognised as the first two laws of New Zealand.
Finally I wanted to make an appeal to those people reading my report, please help me I desperately need ACC to reinstate my care (including getting me back to university, as I was studying law before I was hurt and the ACC law says they must reinstate me as near as possible to my pre-injury state).
Please help me, I am an intelligent person, please don’t waste the past 15 years of extensive study and learning I have done living in the neo-liberal darklands. Don’t waste my expert knowledge of human behaviour, traumatic stress disorders and constitutional rights violations in the New Zealand context. We could lead the world in dismantling neo-liberal terrorism, rather than lead the world in the promotion of it – which we are currently doing (John Key while PM was head of a world group dedicated to spreading neo-liberalism across the planet and current government priorities and ongoing privatization/globalization focus shows they don’t intend to stop.
Please help me have a voice with my art so it can educate/inform those people radicalised and obsessed with neo-liberal economic theories to the detriment of society. Like in the Milgram experiment where those experimented on were not allowed to see the person they thought they were electrocuting/torturing/harming. Those people who have made New Zealand No 1 in the developed world for child suicide, women self-harming, family violence and homelessness.
Kia kaha and aroha to us all.

I have been doing some investigation into human rights justice instruments supposed to protect human rights in New Zealand which quite obviously DO NOT in area of mental health. A review of the Tribunals unit which is supposed to cover only issues that are not serious shows constitutional and life-death decisions of the government are being adjudicated there. By people chosen by the government, this is a gross violation of separation of powers and is quite obviously where most corruption and human rights violations are happening.
Currently there is a review of the Tribunals law and new proposed law which will see even more civil & human rights violations along with persecution of people with psycho social/psychological disabilities, especially through our court/justice system.
This is a list of those justice issues in the Tribunal – note, govt chooses to set up Tribunals and not put them in a court:
Occupations Tribunal – for professionals from other countries to be registered
Disputes Tribunal – for monetary disputes up to $15,000 – soon to be $30,000
Motor Vehicle Dealer – registration, complaints etc
Real Estate Tribunal – complaints
Copyright – complaints
Abortion – registration of surgeons etc
Customs – complaints
Land and Title – complaints
Licenses and Certificates
IMMIGRATION – disputes
TAX – disputes
TENANCY – disputes
HUMAN RIGHTS – disputes
ACC – disputes
LAWYERS & CONVEYANCING – disputes
LEGAL AID – disputes
SOCIAL SECURITY – disputes
STUDENTS – disputes about entitlements
There is NO WAY disputes against the crown/government should be adjudicated in a Tribunal where the government chooses the members who make decisions. Those above in capitals are part of our constitutional laws, the most blatant of those is Human Rights.
In my case I won two ACC reviews at the Tribunal and have been waiting 8 years for them to reinstate my care.
Constitutional law MUST BE PUT UNDER HIGH COURT OR SUPREME COURT SYSTEM – if New Zealanders value it like they say they do it should not be in a lowly Tribunal where government has complete control over it.
Government are using huge law firms to defend cases against some of the poorest and most victimized members of society – the playing field must be levelled. As I have said before there must be a constitutional law service paid for by taxes – that matches all need in society, as required under law. Constitutional law must be given its proper status in our commonwealth democracy that adheres to Rule of Law.
There must be a jury of our peers presiding over constitutional law decisions – Tribunal members and judges have failed us.
Disputes about torture must be taken from the Attorney-General, I have asked the Attorney-General for many years to allow me to take a case of Torture against ACC and others – I am refused. I tried to do it myself and was told by Judge Davidson I was being malicious and I didn’t have consent of Attorney-General. He also referred to Imperial Laws Application Act 1988
It has become quite obvious to me over the past few days that having human rights cases heard in a Tribunal is grossly inapproriate & causing serious violations of United Nations declarations and Constitutional Law. Our entire society is suffering and people are dying.
Human Rights violations of people with mental health are rampant and what 90% of citizens are complaining to United Nations about. This is a constitutional law and yet it languishes in a Tribunal with members who aren’t even lawyers and are chosen by the government of the day – a gross violation of separation of powers expected in a democracy (a democracy YEAH RIGHT).
The oher tribunals involve material and financial matters – having tribunals dealing with the lives and deaths of 100,000s of people is grossly inappropriate and I believe a purposeful act of harm against an entire sector of society. It denigrates constitutional and human rights laws. Then there is the ACC tribunal which should not even exist, the conduct of this organisation in my case has been nothing less than psychological torture and persecution – gross violations of my rights and massive cause of harm – not just for me but many others. They should be under health system, they have corrupted their current system and have no right to have it continue with the abomination they have created for many citizens (who own ACC).
WE DO NOT NEED A NEW CONSTITUTION – we need to empower the current one, moving cases to our expensive & beautiful Supreme court, which is only used 55 days a year at the moment, is essential to ensuring the integrity of our constitutional laws. It must be free, the power of money imbalance must be addressed, this is why we have Rule Of Law.
There must also be legal representation for people who take cases of human & constitutional rights violations to court – I’m sure most would be like me and incapable of representing themselves. Currently the government employs multiple expensive law firms to oppose people claiming human rights abuses, poor and sick people. For my protesting criminal charges I get an overworked country lawyer out on her own and our opposition is law firm Meredith Connell with a team of over a dozen lawyers and support staff. The scales of justice need to be evened up.
I can imagine there would be hundreds of good people, good lawyers who would jump at the chance to work in the area of human rights and constitutional law, especially for disabled and mentally injured abuse victims like me. Who the government and society been screwing over for years.
You could run it through Public Defence Service across the road – cause very few of their lawyers know constitutional and human rights laws, its a specialist area, that does intersect with criminal law. Also they can be complicated and time consuming, govt has run down the justice system just same as education and health (I believe to purposely harm society & profit from it).
Imagine walking into the Supreme Court and having our countries most senior judges sitting before you to hear your case against our own government that sits just across the road. If I ever see that day – well – there will be tears. What a dream though.
Arrived at Victoria University for the event, people from Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade organising it. Was desperate to find someone I could talk to about getting protection from police as a Civil Society Actor. Started talkng to this woman Sally, was upset, she told me she had been involved in human rights sector for years. I challenged her that it was people like her who had caused the human rights issues we now had, that I now had.
She became very passive aggressive to the point of creepy, they bought me a young woman from Human Rights Commission & I immediately moved away from her like I was frightened – I can’t help it, its a reaction to all the times they have not helped me & hurt me – after all those years begging for their help and being discredited, ignored and having police etc attack me for it.
I wasn’t in a good place so I couldn’t talk to them – there’s no point – I know there is no point after 15 years. Only place I am ever going to get help is the United Nations, HRC are set up to protect the government and New Zealand’s reputation – they even say that in their promotion of the event. They say they trying to protect NZs reputation BLATANTLY – groan.
Sally & another woman couldn’t/woudn’t believe what has been happening with police, mental health, ACC and the justice system. When I said about throwing the paint on White Ribbon banner in police station and chalking swastika on building Sally became really weird. Apparently NOBODY is allowed to use that symbol etc etc, (she also called me Sweetie one part of it). I asked her if she knew how the HUman Rights Act came about, she said she did. When I my use of that symbol was to represent gross violations of my rights and I had every right to use it, she kept saying I wasn’t – so did the young HRC woman. I tried to explain about people being driven to self-harm, violence, addiction suicide etc due to human rights violations by our government – she didn’t want to know. NAZIs did it to people, in 21st century govt has worked out how to drive people to doing it themselves. NZ has highest rate of woman self-harming in the world.
I told her she was trivialising and discrediting what was happening to me and 10,000s of other mentally injured abuse victims with her ‘extreme’ reaction to me using the swastika. She said she wasn’t -but she was. She was incredibly patronising and behaving really oddly, other people came around. I knew it was time to end the conversation when people start reacting like that. So I headed into the lecture theatre to sit down, a very dark skinned woman with braids had been listening and tried to stop me, she asked the man standing near the door to stop me from entering. I wasn’t having any of that so just went around him, while he was trying to work out why I would be stopped. Lots of practice & a complete lack of respect for govt officials gives you the strength to ignore them.
I also told Sally I was human sewage and she kept telling me I wasn’t, over and over again. I said I wasn’t asking her opinion on it, I knew how I was being treated, I was a poet and song-writer and had written a song about it, I knew I was human sewage. Her reaction was very strange.
I got in the meeting – about 50 people – mostly from agencies WHO HAVE BEEN CAUSING THESE HUMAN RIGHTS ISSUES – groan. I had begged for help from EVERY ONE OF THEM and been told they don’t deal with individual cases – question is how do they represent human rights violations if they refuse to talk to the people having their rights violated. Some of them loved the sound of their own voices. The people running it were middle class ignorant people, obviously doing very well pretending we have human rights in New Zealand and staying ignorant to what is really happening.
By this stage the organisers were in a flap, outside, Sally came in and proceeded to tell me I had to leave – I looked at her and said NO. Yes apparently I had to leave by order of Victoria University Security because I was trespassed. WTF – I was shocked, don’t remember being given a trespass order by them, even though did have an altercation with security during a chalk protest outside couple of years ago. Police were called, but nothing came of it.
So spoke up in front of everybody and told them what was happening, started crying, told the room of people they were trying to have me removed, that I just wanted to stay – it was related to my LEGAL non-violent protests and I needed to stay to find out what to do to get protection and justice. I asked them to back me up, only 2 people did, the organiser up the front went out and had a talk to security, came back in and whispered I could stay. They don’t realise there would have been NO WAY they would have got me out of there without police arresting me – NO WAY.
What a way to start the consultation meeting – with such a blatant violation of my human and civil rights. Sally came back in the room and tried to sit beside me – I asked her to go away several times, she refused. She moved a few seats away from me, but came closer at one point – she was making me feel really uncomfortable and was even turned towards me. I just tried to ignore her. Why would someone sit beside you, when you obviously didn’t like them or want them there – it was really really creepy & I will be making a complaint about her inappropriate behaviour. An ex-social worker – groan, some of those people are very mentally disturbed – passive aggressive & DO NOT like being challenged – they just want people saying nice things about them.
We went around the room with microphone, most people were talking about violations of human rights against mentally ill people – but from an advocacy perspective. Got to me and I did it from my perspective.
Took some notes, supported people when they said things I know to be true – groaned, closed my eyes and shook my head when I heard BULLSHIT from people who had no idea what they were talking about.
Talked to a couple of people afterwards about what going on with police, everything they suggested I had tried. They were shocked at what was going on – because obviously they don’t come into contact with people like me – but I had phoned every one of those organisations (eg Amnesty & UN NZ group and been told to go away, they didn’t want to know about individual cases. Not the exact person I was speaking to, but others.)
Left & went to Parliament was upset about what had happened – they had actually tried to have me removed from that very important meeting on how to approach United Nations about human rights abuses I was being subjected to. WTF. And that woman Sally had acted really strangely – I’m sure a psychitarist would be able to explain her disturbing behaviour, especially about sitting next to me when I asked her not to – what was that?
At parliament I sat there mostly just crying & upset in front of my signs, my biggest sign was WORTHELESS SUICIDAL ABUSE VICTIM, PLEASE KILL ME – that’s how I felt. A nice couple of tourists came up to me and asked why there was so much suicide in New Zealand. So I told them why, was thinking later how I should do a VLOG about it. They completely understood about how NZers were so looked after by their government but after neo-liberalism they were terrorised by them.
I asked their nationality as I couldn’t pick it – the were Isralie – there was another person their listening as well – an American, she agreed with everything I was saying about neo-liberalism government etc – was ashamed of Trump. I said how I didn’t really understand the conflicts in their region and was focused on my own country, didn’t believe it was anything really to do with me on the other side of the world. I did say I knew they had serious issues of allocation of resources like water and places to grow food, which I am sure was fuelling their problems.
As we talked it was apparent in New Zealand the poorest are denied a safe place to live and access to land required to grow food. They have welfare & homes for disabled in Israel – so does New Zealand, but I said how they had taken many away and even though they gave you just enough to live, rents were skyrocketing and payments weren’t. I also commented that even though there was welfare you were degraded & hated in teh community when you had to rely on it. Even your own family were ashamed of you.
An Indian man from MSD (sounded like a senior executive the way he was talking) came along, he was nice and wanted to get me help. First thing he asked me is if it was MSD who were not helping me. I assured him my WINZ case manager was one of my biggest support people, she was an amazing person and was often upset she couldn’t get me ACC care and mental health services I was entitled to. He was relieved – he checked about three more times, he was nice & went into Parliament to try and get me to see an MP – once he heard how serious my situation was. He never came back, I told him they wouldnt’ see me, they were all scared of me but he could try if he wanted to. I told them I was in contact with them and nothing had changed.
Then DAVE came over – Dave is one of the older security guards I DO NOT LIKE after a couple of incidents which were grossly unfair. Apparently people had been in to complain to security about me and several had called police – WTF – what he said came across as a threat – hell it is a threat, but that’s the abusive process at the moment – that’s what all those people in suicide prevention have done – turned suicidal people into CRIINALS. I know how to get out of having police or mental health called, there no way they going to commit me in a million years.
Had a long talk with Dave, so we sort of reconciled our differences, although I cried several times and said how traumatised I was by the things he had done. He never apologised of course. He agreed with most of what I was saying, he also said staff had been pretty traumatised by the man who set himself alight on the lawn.
At one point there was a cameraman setting up for someone I didn’t recognised, obviously to do with a news programme of some sort. Maybe it was about the court case of woman helping her mum suicide and my sign sort of related to that. I know he set up so I was in teh background, but I couldn’t bare to watch TV news tonight after they went on and on about National party leadership.
Left about 3.30pm and headed home. I have protested 100s of times now, EVERY time I go out always learn something & always meet some really interesting people. Usually learn something about how bad the system is as well – but today was the weirdest. Those MFAT people are completely radicalised, they truly believe people are getting what the government and laws say they are. Thank God all our submissions will go to the United Nations, I’ll make one to MFAT by 21st June 2018, but I know they will ignore it – as they ignore all my submissions on human rights etc.
What a day – I want to encourage people with human rights and other injustice issues TO BE IDLE NO MORE – GET OUT IN THE WORLD, OUT IN THE STREET, it is essential if we want things to change.
Kia kaha & Aroha to us all.
