kiwi Soldier Killed in Afghanistan: Shame on the Parents and Politicians!

Three Fact About Militarism

1. Children who grow up in loving families don’t join the military.

2. Parents who love and care about their kids, don’t encourage them to join the military.

3. Countries who care about their children, don’t send their sons [and daughters] to get killed in trivial wars half way across the world to keep the War Racket running.

It’s time to bring to account NZ politicians, military brass  and the warmongering parents for immorality, corruption, conspiracy to and complicity in MURDER!

Canadian minister quits over NZ trip

I ain’t going to that toxic hell-hole again!

‘He was scheduled to make trip to New Zealand in a couple of weeks on official business – and he realized he dreaded it.’ Telegraph-Journal said.

New Brunswick MP Greg Thompson, Minister of Veterans Affairs in Stephen Harper’s government, who was due to visit New Zealand has quit his job because he wasn’t willing to travel to “that sh*tpit.”

He told the local Telegraph-Journal newspaper that he was no longer willing to tolerate the “grind” of such trips.

“He was scheduled to make trip to New Zealand in a couple of weeks on official business – and he realized he dreaded it,” the newspaper reported.

His excuse was that frequent air travel had worn him down, and he was no longer willing to “go that far.”

“The expectations for you are very high and you’re working all the time. It’s a full-time, all-the-time job and your families suffer because of that – you just can’t say no to engagements and put them off”.

Thompson, 62, is expected to remain as the MP for the New Brunswick Southwest constituency until the current term expires.

Let Sleeping Dogs Lie: Fonterra

Amnesty International calls on Fonterra and the New Zealand Government to condemn the  San Lu related executions

Geng Jinping and Zhang Yujun who were involved in San Lu tainted milk powder scandal were executed yesterday.

According to the official Xinhua news agency,  the two convicts were executed “for the crime of endangering public safety by dangerous means.” Together they produced and sold about 1,700 tons of melamine-laced protein powder.

[Even in their own country Chinese women and children are unprotected against pakeha malevolence.] A Chinese mother, whose baby died from drinking tainted milk, holds a sign reading “Give me back my baby” outside Shijiazhuang Intermediate People’s Court, Hebei province January 22, 2009.

At least 6 babies died and up to 500,000 others were sickened after drinking milk intentionally tainted with melamine. Melamine, an industrial product used  in fertilizers,  plastics, and concrete,  which can cause  kidney stones, was added  to the milk to make it appear rich in protein.

Fonterra’s three directors on the Sanlu board, Bob Major, Mark Wilson and a Chinese national, Patrick Kwok, literraly got away with mass murder.

Fonterra farmers owned 43 per cent stake in the company, having invested more than $200 million in the joint venture, which has since been declared bankrupt.

Now says Fonterra should take a stand against the executions.

Amnesty New Zealand spokesperson Margaret Taylor said: “As a New Zealand company operating in China, Fonterra has an obligation to uphold the values of New Zealand through the way it conducts itself.

“Not only must it speak out against the executions, following a scandal it was so closely associated with, but it must also use its ongoing engagement with China to work on improving human rights and particularly labour rights.”

Ms Taylor said it was important the New Zealand Government also expressed its dismay at the executions to Chinese government.

Fonterra called the milk contamination scandal “a terrible tragedy,” but did not have the courage to own up their part in the conspiracy, or even comment on the executions.

New Zealand IS a Fascist State!

New Zealand is more than Just a Police State: It’s a Fascist Police State

A ridiculous poll, answered by mostly pathetic people, is posted on a main yahoo forum asking the usual readers to comment on whether “New Zealand heading for a police state.”

Why, NOOOO! Whoever gave you that idea???

There’s just one reader, railrev59, who doesn’t seem to have his head stuck between his legs:

Probably most people on this site are too young to remember the waterfront workers’ strike of 1951, but the simple fact is that NZ has been a police state since the legislation of that time – which, I believe, has never been repealed.

Anyone who doesn’t remember, here’s link

NZ heading for a police state?

Newstalk ZB October 16, 2009, 7:15 am  http://nz.news.yahoo.com/a/-/top-stories/6225235/nz-heading-for-a-police-state/2/

Civil libertarians are unhappy about proposed new search and surveillance laws and claim they could lead to a police state.

Parliament’s justice and electoral committee is considering the Search and Surveillance Bill, which will bring all such activities under a single piece of legislation. It widens the provision for searches without a warrant and increases covert investigative powers of agencies such as the Commerce Commission.

Civil Liberties spokesman Michael Bott says the law is supposedly about human freedom, but endorses a reduction in the right to silence and the use of the coercive power of the State to extract information from people still presumed innocent.

He claims the legislation will result in an authoritarian society and predicts New Zealand will increasingly become a police state with a government which is not concerned about protecting individual New Zealanders.

Mr Bott says the Government should be ashamed of the legislation.

The New Zealand docks dispute

For five months since the 17th of February, 1951, New Zealand was in the throes of one of the longest and bitterest Trade Union struggles in its history.

The struggle commenced with the lock-out of the Waterside Workers (Dockers) and the imposing of the “Waterfront Strike Emergency Regulations” and their amendments, 1951. The miners, the Wellington freezing workers, the New Zealand Federated Seamen’s Union struck as a protest against the Emergency Regulations.

The miners, freezing workers and the federated seamen had no wage dispute and they ignored the advice of their Union National Officers to remain at work. On February 8th the employers of waterfront labour offered 4½d. an hour wage rise following the Arbitration Court award of a 15 per cent increase.

On February 10th watersiders at Wellington and at New Plymouth ceased working overtime as a protest against the employers’ offer. The workers claimed that 4½d an hour was only 9 per cent increase in a forty-hour week and that their ability to work overtime had been included when the wage rise was computed. The employers argued that the rise offered was exactly in line with the 15 per cent Arbitration Court award.

The employers began dismissing men on the 15th of February for refusing to work overtime. Workers alleged that they had been locked out and stated that they were willing to work the forty-hour week. Employers replied that refusal to work overtime was a breach of the agreement. On February 19th the Government issued an ultimatum calling on the watersiders to resume normal work including overtime and to place their wage claim before the Waterfront Authority, failing that, the Waterfront Commission would be suspended.

The same day, the waterside workers saw displayed on the engagement boards a notice to the effect that if they were not prepared to work overtime they were not to lift their discs (sign on for work). Meetings of watersiders at all ports on that day rejected the Government ultimatum. The workers claimed that the position was an “open lock-out by the employers” and a “calculated attack” on Trade Unionism and the forty-hour week.

The Prime Minister of New Zealand declared a state of emergency on February 22nd. The Government issued sweeping emergency regulations on February 23rd, giving power to suspend all awards, use members of the armed forces on the waterfront, extend the powers of the police, deal with any person who incited or aided the continuance of the dispute, place all union funds in the hands of the receiver, etc.

A Waterfront Strike Notice was issued ordering all watersiders back to work on Monday, February 26th, or to suffer a “declared strike” under the regulations. On that Monday, meetings of watersiders in all ports rejected this ultimatum. The following day the Government ordered servicemen on to the waterfront at Wellington and Auckland, and the New Zealand coast seamen walked off all ships being worked by servicemen.

Some Wellington Harbour Board employees were suspended for refusing to assist the servicemen, and meetings of seamen, drivers and others were held everywhere. The Trade Union Congress called on the Government to resign. The Federation of Labour affiliations recommended the calling of a compulsory conference between the disputing parties. Over a thousand workers employed on hydro-electric plants at Waikato ceased work.

All Waikato underground mines and some West coast mines were idle. The Amalgamated Society of Railway Servants instructed all branches not to handle any material on the waterfront that was normally handled by the watersiders. Freezing workers at Ngahauranga, the Gear Meat Workers at Petone and at several other centres stopped work. The Golden Bay Cement Works closed down. The Government de-registered the New Zealand Waterside Workers’ Union on February 28th, and the Parliamentary Labour Party called on the Government to arrange a compulsory conference between the parties.

On March 1st receivers moved into the Waterside Workers’ Union offices throughout the country. Bank accounts amounting to £20,000 were taken over. The Federation of Labour announced that it had done “everything that it could be expected to do within reason”, the Union could only blame itself for its position. On March 5th all mines in the Greymouth district had come to a standstill. The Wellington Drivers’ Union took a ballot and decided not to work with the troops at the waterfront. By April 10th the Government had used everything in the bag to force the watersiders back to work.

Emergency Regulations, all the Anti-Trade Union legislation brought down by the Labour Government with a few embellishments by the present Nationalist Government. It was made an offence to discuss the Emergency Regulations at any meeting, even the leader of the opposition was refused permission to do so. But the watersiders, the miners, the freezing workers and the seamen stood firm. On two occasions members of the Watersiders’ Union were sent cards to sign if they wished to return to work under the new conditions and as members of new Unions that had been registered, but very few took advantage of the offer. The majority showed remarkable determination to preserve their Union and to support their elected representatives.

The Government refused to negotiate on any grounds that would enable the old Union to return on a National basis or to negotiate with any deputation that included the old Union’s president and secretary, H. Barnes and T. Hill. If the workers had been prepared to sacrifice these two, a settlement might have been brought about. These two men were branded as the trouble makers and the old Communist bogey was thrashed until it became a joke. It was a Communist plan, cried the Government, and the watersiders were dupes. Seventy-five per cent of the members of the old Union were ex-servicemen from the 1914-18 and 1939-45 wars and it is ironical that these men, who supposedly went away to destroy the Nazi monster in the last war, should return to face another one with similar earmarks as soon as they demanded a little more of the wealth that the working class produces, in order to maintain their already miserable living standard, or a little of the “new order” that they were promised whilst they were fighting their masters’ enemies.

They have the new order, but it is worse than the old one. Socialists have maintained through both wars that the common enemy of the workers in every land is Capitalism and not their fellow workers of a different nationality. Throughout the struggle the Parliamentary Labour Party in New Zealand sat on the fence, and the Labour politicians were subtle as usual.. At first they made no complaint against the Emergency Regulations or anti-Trade-Union regulations which their own party had used when it was the Government. Mr. Nash, the leader of the Opposition, said at a meeting in Hamilton that “he was in favour of applying regulations in any easy and not in a rigorous way as long as this did not tend to prolong the strike”, and that the Labour Party “would have had no hesitation in using its powers to ensure that essential supplies were delivered to hospitals and homes”.

He said that he did not like to see freedom of speech curtailed or officials given the right to open private correspondence. Neither could he agree to the clause in the regulation which made it an offence to give food to assist watersiders’ wives and children. (Evening Post, Wellington, 30.3.1951.) The Labour politicians claimed that they were neither for nor against the locked-out and striking Unions, but with the unflagging determination of these Unions to continue the struggle, the Labour men took the opportunity to get in and reap the spoils of the workers’ fight.

The Import Supply Bill was debated in the House of Representatives, 26.6.1951, and the Labour Party politicians used the chance to debate the industrial situation generally. They expressed concern at the state of the country, urged a settlement of the strife and, with an eye to the future, they put in a good case for themselves. The Government speaker, in reply, quoted from a pamphlet entitled “Statements concerning recent disputes affecting waterfront work” issued by the Minister of Labour in the past Labour Government. Therein the cause of the waterfront disputes was attributed to the attitude of “Barnes and Hill” on the various waterfront Commissions, and to the machinations of the Communists. This dispute gives the Labour Party a good weapon with which to fight the next election. It will be able to adopt the attitude of “we told you so” and to blame the Nationalist Government for all the workers’ problems.

The Federation of Labour played a vile part in the dispute, giving the Nationalist Government every aid to crush the watersiders and their allies. Even the Labour Party had to snub them. Thus is demonstrated the futility of compulsory unionism to the workers. When the National Government brought in its Industrial Conciliation and Arbitration Amendment Act, there was in it a threat to compulsory unionism. The officials of the Federation of Labour immediately dashed to the rescue and convinced Mr. Holland of the value of compulsory unionism, pointing out that “the Federation has yet to find any sections of the employers who object to its continuance” (Southern Cross, 3.11.1950). Without compulsory unionism the officials would lose their mainstay and the power they wield. They have now proved its value to the Government. Lack of knowledge and apathy of the members is of great assistance to these leaders of the Federation, as it is to all leaders.

The promise of support from the railwaymen seems to have been lost in transit and the strikers have rather a poor opinion of their brothers on the railways who failed to comply with the resolve “not to handle any material on the waterfront normally handled by watersiders”. The Government precipitated this struggle at a bad time for the employing class in New Zealand. It was at the height of the exporting season, thereby costing them an immense sum. The determination of the men, the active part played by the young members who were getting their first taste of such a struggle, and the support of wives who went out to work to help their menfolk continue the fight, are deserving of the applause of workers everywhere. On July 11th the seamen, cooks and stewards who had been on strike in sympathy with the watersiders, returned to work and the National Council of the Waterside Workers’ Union recommended branches in all ports to return to work.

The New Zealand Government is to seek an early dissolution of Parliament to test public opinion on its handling of the dispute. The leader of the opposition has charged the Government with fascism, dictatorship, opening mails, tapping telephones, suppression of free speech and freedom of assembly and other actions foreign to democratic government. This is denied by the Prime Minister (Manchester Guardian, 12.7.1951).

The outstanding lesson to be learned from this working-class struggle in New Zealand is that working conditions bitterly fought for and won through struggle on the industrial battlefield over the years can be wiped out, comparatively speaking, in a few minutes by those who control the political machinery. The political weapon is the dominant one and whilst it remains in the hands of the capitalist class no amount of struggle will free the workers from the yoke of capital. The same determined and heroic effort as our New Zealand fellow workers have recently waged, if directed towards gaining control of the political machine with a view to ending the wages system would solve all their economic problems. If only they would raise the cry, “Abolish the wages system” instead of making a modest demand for a tiny wage increase, then they would be heading towards a system free from lock-outs, strikes, poverty, atomic wars, ill housing, dictatorship, over-work and the host of other evils which beset them.

One expert was quoted as saying that “the vessels will protect our waters” from mutant “killer dolphin” babies whose brains are affected by rat poison dropped on them by … the government.

Nevertheless, NZ govt has spent $2,277 on behalf of every kid living in abject poverty to protect them from  sea monsters and maritime enemies such as China, Myanmar, North Korea, Iraq, Afghanistan …  whose soldiers lurk in our coastal waters.

New Zealand’s “Joint Naval Exercise”

Posted by te2ataria on June 8, 2009

sent by a reader in New Zealand murder capital [which one? Oh, Auckland!]

Sex Toys for the Boys!

What happens to all the money that should be spent on health, education and welfare of this sick, ignorant and poverty stricken nation?

It all goes to “Joint Naval Excercise!”

The money goes to buying sex toys for the boys [and girls.] New Zealand government is spending more than $500 million on Project Protector, to shore up New Zealand defences against [presumably] the Somali pirates and swarms of drunk Aussies coming across the Tasman Sea for New Zealand Sheep.

New Zealand’s Rototiti. New Sex Kit fully decorated with phallic symbols – Ready for FUN-DO! Rototiti is one of the “Navy’s” four new inshore “patrol vessels.” [The other three shipd are “Haveit,” “Pukikid,” and “Taupo blow”]

Ok! Tha’t a ruse. There’s no Somali pirate threat, or drunk Aussies rushing across the Tasman Sea for the love of NZ lamb [over their own animals.] So what’s the truth?

Why does New Zealand “navy” need four 55-metre, 340-tonne patrol crafts with phallic symbols protruding from every possible angle and crevice?

They need it for the boys [and girls] to do their joint naval excercises, of course. The crafts, fully decorated with highly visible phallic symbols, are used as “exciting” venues for the joint naval exercises: Sodomy of the male, and rape of female navy recruits on the high and low seas, and at every port of call near you.

The next time you here the phrase “Joint Naval Excercise” you know exactly what it means!

New Zealand MRSA Infections Up 3500 pct

Posted by te2ataria on March 15, 2009

Global Health Alert (Health Bulletin # 26): Explosive Rise in MRSA Infections in New Zealand

New Zealand Cases of antibiotic-resistant superbug methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) have exploded since 2004.

Infections have risen from 12 case in 2004 at least 420 reported cases in 2008  (a rise of 3500 percent), according to figures released by NZ Ministry of Health.

Group A streptococcus bacterium, which causes rheumatic fever and can lead arthritis and heart damage, is immune to common antibiotics. In some cases patients infected with the bacterium do not survive.

Unfortunately, New Zealand Government has hidden this information from the professionals and failed to warn the public for nearly 5 years.

In an outbreak at Wellington Hospital in 2004 three babies died and at least 30 others infected. Health workers also revealed an outbreak of group A streptococcus bacterium, which had infected at least 32 children in Kaikohe, New Zealand. However, the government prevented any follow-up information on that case from being released.

“A new, virulent superbug has established itself in New Zealand ,”  NZ Green Party health spokesperson Sue Kedgley reportedly said today.

Kedgley said New Zealand Government, in response to her written questions, had confirmed that the superbug USA300 had taken hold, with cases rising from 12 to 420 in the last four years, the report said.

“This strain is contagious, easily misdiagnosed and resistant to many antibiotics,” she said.

“It is a cause of huge concern overseas because it is virulent and contagious and is associated with serious skin infection outbreaks, particularly amongst sports teams.”

“This strain of MRSA is contagious, easily misdiagnosed and resistant to many antibiotics,” said Ms Kedgley.

“It is a cause of huge concern overseas, because it is virulent and contagious, and is associated with serious skin infection outbreaks, particularly amongst sports teams.”

“The Government has failed to set up a national surveillance system that the Green Party secured funding for last year. The weekly monitoring programme for the superbug MRSA was stopped in 2005. It appears that DHBs have been left to cope in isolation with this new outbreak,” Ms Kedgley said.

What is Staphylococcus aureus? [Source: CDC]

Staphylococcus aureus, often referred to simply as “staph,” is a bacteria commonly found on the skin and in the nose of healthy people. Occasionally, staphylococci can get into the body and cause an infection. This infection can be minor (such as pimples, boils, and other skin conditions) or serious and sometimes fatal (such as blood infections or pneumonia). Staph. aureus is a common organism and can be found in the nostrils of up to 30% of persons. Person-to-person transmission is the usual form of spread and occurs through contact with secretions from infected skin lesions, nasal discharge or spread via the hands.

What is MRSA?

MRSA are staphylococci that are resistant to the antibiotic, methicillin, and other commonly used antibiotics such as penicillin and cephalosporins. These germs have a unique gene that causes them to be unaffected by all but the highest concentrations of these antibiotics. Therefore, alternate antibiotics must be used to treat persons infected with MRSA. Vancomycin has been the most effective and reliable drug in these cases, but is used intravenously and is not effective for treatment of MRSA when taken by mouth.

More information on MRSA from CDC:  Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus

In 2005, MRSA killed 19,000 people in the United States—more than 1.5 times as many people than died of AIDS that year.
