NEWS BLACKOUT continues in New Zealand – DAY 48

Posted by te2ataria on February 4, 2016

Road Fatalities and Tourist Deaths: DAY 48 of latest NEWS BLACKOUT campaign in NZ

Today was also the day thousands of angry protesters shut down intersections in Auckland’s CBD to “send a message” against the TPPA signing.

Trade ministers from the 12 countries joined in the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement (TPPA) today signed the biggest trade deal in history in Auckland, despite the massive public outrage. [What have the people got to do with issues of national interest?]

Council Trade union secretary Sam Huggard said the government did not consider people in the TPPA plan, reports Erin Speedy.
“They didn’t want us to say we want an end to corporate greed.”

“We don’t want them growing up in a country where the government is scared of every movement they make because they’re scared they’re going to p*** off some overseas corporates,” he said. http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/politics/76517301/TPPA-signing-Live-coverage-from-Auckland-as-trade-deal-signed

… and the day when

Our corrupt PM chickened out of attending Waitangi celebrations… “I’m certainly not running scared, I’ve made a commitment to go every year and I have.”

“I can’t go and I won’t go with a gagging order on me,” he said.

Large-scale protests around the country today in response to the Government signing the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPPA) also meant concerns about potential riots and protests had put him and his security staff in a “dangerous position”.  http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/politics/76578090/ngapuhi-elder-warns-there-will-be-trouble-if-john-key-attends-te-tii-marae

Meanwhile, Japan’s Yamaguchi prefecture began marketing itself as “the new Australia” or more precisely as “the fake Australia” since the two places have absolutely nothing in common!  http://www.abc.net.au/news/2016-02-03/japan-prefecture-marketing-itself-as-the-new-australia/7137152

Another story of tourists wronged…

Tourists leave NZ after campervan hell

American tourist David DiMichele and his wife spent “almost US$4,000 (NZ$6,016) getting here, and then another US$2,800 (NZ$4,211) on the campervan for 29 days.”

Predictably, their rental vehicle broke down! [See blog content for defective rental cars and unsafe sports equipment.] “Does it leave a sour taste in my mouth? Absolutely,” said the tourist.   http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=11584696

… and the “murder-mystery” deepened…

Rosemary Dey, 31, was found dead in her Newtown flat on Tuesday night. Police say her death is unexplained.

On October 24 last year, police put out a plea for help to find Dey, saying she had last been seen in Christchurch the day before and they had “concerns for her wellbeing”.

Police reported two days later that she had been found.  http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/crime/76569925/woman-found-dead-in-newtown-flat-named-as-rosemary-dey
