The sad state of our 100% pure, crunchy, yellowish green water…

NZ WATERS ARE MAJOR SOURCES OF DISEASE AND DEATH

Canterbury artist protesting at the “sad state” of the Selwyn River

Canterbury artist Mike Glover, of Springston, has designed a “protest sign” aimed at the Selwyn District Council to take action on improving Selwyn’s heavily polluted waters.

“With high E.coli levels and toxic algae warnings, it is tough to find a safe spot to have a dip in Selwyn this summer, Glover said. The water quality grading of the Selwyn River at the Upper Selwyn Huts has been ‘very poor’ for years,” he said. http://www.stuff.co.nz/the-press/news/mid-canterbury-selwyn/76145756/pointed-protest-over-selwyn-river-water-quality

“As a local resident and ratepayer I’ve looked at the ‘Temporary Health Warning’ sign here for many years.”

Glover’s 10-year-old daughter cannot swim at the river, because swimming is not permitted there.

“A whole generation of kids is growing up thinking the swimming pool is the place to swim as the river is too polluted,” he said.

“The temporary health warning sign is older than my girl and… [it] is an insult to the people who live here, pay their rates and deserve better.”

“The water quality in the lower Selwyn River – from Coes Ford down – is affected by intensive land use. Recent rule changes and the collaborative measures of the Canterbury Water Management Strategy are leading to improved land management in the area and we expect to see improved water quality as a result of this,” said ECan’s senior surface water science manager Tim Davie

Selwyn District Council David Ward told Stuff the river was not a council issue. [comes under  divine jurisdiction, perhaps?]

Surely, the water in Marlborough Sounds is 100% pure and green?

Marlborough Sounds shellfish: one bite on the fish and you are a vegetable!
The Ministry for Primary Industries has issued a public health warning after routine tests of shellfish samples at Onapua Bay, in the Tory Channel, showed unsafe levels of Paralytic Shellfish Poisoning.

Mussels, oysters, tuatua, pipi, toheroa, cockles, scallops, catseyes, kina and all other bivalve shellfish should not be eaten.

Paralytic Shellfish Poisoning could cause symptoms between 10 minutes and three hours after eating, the warning said.

Symptoms could include numbness and tingling, difficulty swallowing or breathing, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, paralysis, respiratory failure, and in severe cases, death.

What kiwi schools don’t teach: true democracy!

Posted by te2ataria on January 23, 2016

True democracy means not having to go to prison because you can’t pay back student loans!

Note to kiwi teachers: The system is rigged and therefore undemocratic when a tiny fraction of people own 99.9% of the wealth, while the rest of the population have to fear prison because they cannot pay back student loans.

‘Kiwis abroad fear returning to NZ’

New Zealanders who live abroad are worried they might go to jail if they come back to the country because of unpaid student loans.

A Cook Islands math teacher was detained at Auckland Airport on Monday after owing $22,000 to the Inland Revenue Department.

When a bankster is also the prime minister:

A 38-year-old New Zealand man currently living in the Middle East, who did not wish to be named, said he made compulsory repayments when he was in the country, but hasn’t made any since he left 13 years ago.

“First of all I was broke. I worked for free just trying to get a break. Once I got a break, I started earning enough to live on, but not enough to save or pay off any debts.”

“Also, New Zealand seems so far away from here. It’s like another world. You leave it behind.”

The last time he saw his loan balance it was around $80,000. He doesn’t know how much his student loan is now but says, “In my mind it’s eleven million dollars”.

He hasn’t heard from IRD directly, but said the department contacted his mother, coincidentally just after she was diagnosed with cancer.

There are 111,000 borrowers overseas, with about 70 percent of them defaulting [unable to pay back?] on their loans, according to the report.
