Below is what I said in a small flyer I was distributing, I gave out around 15 at an event in Nov/Dec 2018 organised by Jill Greathead and Wairarapa Voice – attended by Business Round Table, Local Govt NZ, Ron Mark and the Swiss Ambassador. I did it because I distrust NZ Initiative (previously the Business Round Table) after following them and their ideas for the past 15-20 years. I wanted people to know who they were and what their ideas had created in society since the 1980s.
I was insulted and discriminated against when I was giving them out – several people saw this. This was advertised as a public meeting, I was told it was ‘their’ propaganda event and I should pay for my own. It was not advertised as a propaganda event, that is not the impression I was given. I also didn’t know Ron Mark would be there, though I got several derogatory comments about my chalking on his window about not limiting immigration and spending money on police, continuing to hurt people people and now $20billion in military spending.
Propaganda is defined as : information, especially of a biased or misleading nature, used to promote a political cause or point of view. I was so offended by the offensive behaviour of several of the Wairarapa Voice members I left distraught before it began. I have felt too uncomfortable and afraid about what happened that night it has stopped me from attending several recent meet the candidates events. I don’t know how Jill Greathead has the audacity to write in her promotional flyer that she promotes ‘community spirit’ and inclusiveness.
I know the law and I know I am allowed to distribute information at a public event in a public building – these people didn’t even appear to know civil or human rights in this country.
NZ Initiative is Business Round Table renamed
Google their history and their directors.
Business Round Table only have interest in advancing rich business people & persecuting poorest so they can profit from them through ‘social investment’. They drive neo-liberalism and don’t care who gets hurt.
Over the past 30 years since neo-liberalism took over NZ our government have consistently shut down mental health services and committed austerity against disabled and poorest citizens. Many of them were made unemployed and poor by this economic terrorism. This has caused serious social problems that have made us No. 1 in OECD for homelessness, youth suicide, self-harm in women & domestic violence (that includes mentally ill people in flatting situations, being harmed and harming others). We had/have social investment, welfare, ACC, health care etc – sadly our government don’t follow the law and provide it to all those entitled to it. They did this on purpose in order to privatise (including charities) as much as they could – an extremist neo-liberal belief -THAT HAD NO STUDIES OR EVIDENCE TO PROVE IT WOULD WORK.
PRIVATISATION DOES NOT WORK – NEO-LIBERALISM IS TERRORISM OF POOREST – mostly disabled people. Read Terrorism Suppression Act, you’re not allowed to impoverish vast numbers of NZ citizens and deny them a place to live. We all know rich are getting richer & poor getting poorer.
Please do some research for yourself in this area eg Imperial Laws Application Act 1988 – First law of NZ is Westminister Statute 1st – common right be done to all rich as poor. Second law is Magna Carta – briefly, nobody is to be destroyed and everybody is to have access to right and justice. I can assure you those disabled and impoverished by neo-liberalism/globalism/free trade are having their lives destroyed and do not have access to justice.
Read other constitutional laws, like Human Rights Act, Health & Disability Act, Sections 150A 151 of the Crimes Act – or Commonwealth Charter. Then there multiple UN treaties New Zealand signed, such as the Treaty on economic social & cultural rights, human rights, disabled rights etc.
WHO ARE LGNZ – why are our rates going to a lobby group who supports NZ Initative – Business Round Table after they have done so much damage to our community. Look who started this organisation, do some research of your own – LGNZ should not even exist.
WHAT IS A FOREIGN AMBASSADOR doing trying to influence politics in NZ? This is highly inappropriate and I have made a complaint to the Swiss government.
LOCALISM IS DIVIDE AND CONQUER
you cannot trust these people
I have since found information to suggest neo-liberalism and localism has reduced us to a feudal society and things are ONLY GOING TO GET WORSE FOR EVERYBODY if we don’t stop doing those things that are seriously harming large sectors of our society – which is illegal and extremely unkind to the point of driving people to suicide, crime and violence – I believe on purpose.
There is another thing people don’t know about Jill and I, years ago when I had been left $10,000 in a will I invested it in trying to get an organisation off the ground called Mental Injury Services for people like myself. The rehab model and business plan (on my solutions page) I produced only happened with Jill’s professional business help, due to my disability I could not do it myself (although I had done several before for previous businesses), I paid her for her business advice. She knows what ACC and the government are not doing for mentally injured abuse victims like myself – she has never supported me or exposed what is going on since then.
When I started watching international news media about the rise of fascism in other ‘western’ countries it appeared to me the behaviour of some of the people within Wairarapa Voice were exhibiting signs of this. Which is why I wrote to Andrew Little as the Minister of the GCSB?
Three days after I sent the description of what I had experienced I phoned Local Govt NZ to ask some more questions about their operation (I had mentioned them in my report as associated with this group). The phoned was grabbed off the person I was speaking to and a woman came on telling me that she knew about the complaint, they wouldn’t be answering any further questions and hung up on me (transparency?). That was a serious breach of my privacy, I could not believe it, I did nothing more than show concern about a group that had some very fascist people in it. YOU ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO TELL THE PEOPLE YOU ARE REPORTING THAT YOU ARE DOING IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The people in Andrew Little’s office are either INCREDIBLY NAIVE AND STUPID (which is possible) or more likely corrupt and promoting the continuation of neo-liberalism as a viable option for organising our society. IT IS NOT – that is common knowledge since 2008.
I was also present at a meeting of Wairarapa Voice last year where they did a series of live feeds through Wairarapa TV. Jill groomed the audience I was part of, told them what questions to ask then pretended to the TV audience she was in a room of people asking random questions. Which of course she had all the answers to down pat – I didn’t agree with most of them but I didn’t say anything. I did offer afterwards to do a presentation on NZ Constitutional Law, the Declaration of Democracy, Commonwealth Charter and signed ratified contracts/treaties NZ government has with the United Nations. Which particularly included the Treaty on Economic Social and Cultural Rights, Civil Rights, Human Rights, Disabled Rights and freedom from torture (which includes in its definition psychological torture).
If you think this is surreal reading it, I can assure you it has been surreal experiencing it – but I could not keep it to myself when I read Jill Greatheads promotional material, which really upset me after my experiences – unless she has been born again and discovered Jesus as her saviour, just kidding.
Jill told me she supported Ron Shaw’s belief that the application of constitutional laws and UN treaties was a CLICHE. I didn’t forget the word he used because it was such an inappropriate and strange word to describe the laws I was quoting. If someone who wants power doesn’t believe in Rule of Law that protected ‘the most vulnerable people’ – that is the road to fascism we are seeing everywhere. New Zealand is not exempt as we all know.
Unless Jill approaches me and agrees to apologise about what happened last year (and organise for others to apologise) and proves to me she does not still have the association with neo-liberalism and Business Round Table (renamed NZ Initiative) on camera so I can put on my youtube channel then you can assume she is untrustworthy. Yet another politician that will say whatever they think people want to hear and do nothing when they get into power – or do the opposite to what they say, like the other Wairarapa MPs have all done.
