Christchurch quake claimant going on hunger strike: ‘We’ve had enough’

Posted by edmundironside on April 17, 2018

Foreword: “We have a [kosher] white supremacist establishment that shame even Donald Trump, spend billions on an incompetent and unnecessary military, and let a brutal police force [and private spy firms] run the country [and commit murder] with absolute impunity, but have no clean water [and go blind while waiting for eye care, or die within hours of being released from hospital] in New Zealand…” — A Reader

Police State: Quake claimant spied upon by govt owned Southern Response

Peter Glasson’s 1920s home with rubble foundation was badly damaged in the 2011 quake and needs new foundations, but the government owned insurer have so far refused to honour his policy, a report said.

“If you went through seven and a half years of it, you’d know that continuous stress, the bullying and the intimidation, the dirty tricks that the lawyers play, after a while have quite an affect on you psychologically.

“I’m one of those people that say enough’s enough,” Glasson said, adding that his family support his decision to go on a hunger strike.

“Back in 2014 I was one of the small group of people who organised class action against Southern Response and it’s now been confirmed to me that Thompson and Clark in Auckland were hired by Southern Response to spy on me.”

Govt hiring private “security firm” to spy on citizens

Southern Response spy target accuses agency of intimidation
Cameron Preston, another earthquake claimant, said he had obtained papers showing Southern Response had spent $170,000 on Thompson and Clark’s services from the start of 2014 to April last year.

“[Mr Shand] a lawyer who is suing Southern Response on behalf of earthquake claimants told Morning Report he was intimidated by private investigators for another government agency in 2013.”

More claims of spying by Thompson and Clark
“As well as being paid by the government to spy on Greenpeace and at least one earthquake claimant in Christchurch, it can now be revealed it has also been monitoring three activist groups, including Oil Free Wellington.”

Could police charge the irate French tourist with triggering Christchurch quake and committing mass murder?

Posted by te2ataria on September 23, 2016

Below the belt, that’s where we hit the “croaking froggies”

The irate French hitchhiker accused of destroying a West Coast road sign out of frustration has now been charged with the theft of a sleeping bag in Auckland.

Cedric Claude Rene Rault-Verpre, 27, had said in an outburst that made international headlines that New Zealand should be renamed “Nazi Zealand.”

In the eyes of the authorities, he had crossed the line and should be made an example of. Accordingly, they seem to have conspired to pin the additional charge of theft on him, as a “Nazi bonus.”

He has since been spoken to by police and is to reappear in court, according to the media.

The hitchhiker, who’s apparently visited 72 other countries, says his anger boiled over after he was racially abused while trying to thumb a lift, according to a “plain-clothed policeman” who gave him a lift.

“It’s originated from a dispute with people on the roadside who made comments about his odd behaviour long before he throw stones at the sign. He wanted a ride. They said no. It escalated. They told him to catch the bus and he was told ‘why don’t you f… off back to where you came from’,” said the “mystery motorist” who picked him up after his first court appearance.

Let’s hope the spiteful authorities will abstain from charging him with triggering the Christchurch earthquake and committing mass murder.

CORRUPTION in NZ Prevents Natural Justice

Political and Judicial Corruption in New Zealand Block Social and Scientific Advancement

IF New Zealand government and the judiciary were NOT corrupt, a number of politicians and scientists should have already been prosecuted for manslaughter in the Christchurch quake…

The February 22 Christchurch earthquake killed at least 182 people, injured hundreds more and destroyed or damaged thousands of homes and businesses …

“We’re being completely ripped off”

Posted by te2ataria on June 18, 2011

We’re being shafted by CERA

Government is using emergency earthquake powers to rip people off: Earthquake victim

“They’re using this emergency legislation to shaft people and to make money out of it for private firms,” said Phil Lennon, owner of Apex Car Rentals.

The “disgusted” owner of a Christchurch building being urgently demolished says the Government is using emergency earthquake powers to rip people off.

Late last month, the Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Authority (Cera) served Apex Car Rentals with a 10-day demolition notice for its Lichfield St building, on the corner of Madras St.

The building, a former fire station, was seriously damaged in September’s earthquake and suffered further damage in the February quake.

On June 7, Cera provided a $448,000 quote for the demolition of the one-and-a-half storey, century-old brick building.

Days later, Apex appointed another contractor to do the job for $194,000.

However, yesterday Cera told the company its plans were “non-compliant” and the building would be knocked down for it.

Apex managing director Phil Lennon said Cera was putting impediments in the way of private contractors and its attitude was “disgusting”.

“It’s taken them 4 1/2 months to come to us and say the building needs to come down – a blind man could have seen that on the 23rd of February.”

Lennon said after getting Cera’s quote, Apex had three days to appoint an independent demolition firm and produce demolition plans.

“I understand the building needs to come down and we’re not going to cry over that,” he said.

“We’re being completely ripped off.

“They’re using this emergency legislation to shaft people and to make money out of it for private firms.”

Young Japanese student was abused, attacked, and mauled by two dogs in racist attack

Christchurch couple, angry that a Japanese student escaped the deadly earthquake unhurt, decided to sign her off themselves.

The couple attacked and abused the young Japanese female and then let loose their two dogs on her, encouraging the animals to bite her.

Here’s the sanitized version:

A young Japanese student has been abused, attacked, and mauled by dogs in a racially motivated attack in Christchurch.

Police have arrested a 25-year-old male and an 18-year-old female in relation to the attack, which took place late on Easter Sunday.

Detective Senior Sergeant Greg Murton of Christchurch South Police says the pair are alleged to have made racist comments to the girl before setting two dogs on her.

The girl made her escape with the help of a passer-by. The two suspects have been remanded on bail.


[Nearly 50 percent of the Christchurch earthquake victims were foreigners, most of whom came from Asia, a large proportion from Japan. Names of the foreign victims that have not been withheld by NZ Gestapo will be released soon.]

Chch Quake: A Critique of NZ ‘Scientific’ Community

Posted by te2ataria on March 19, 2011

The following post has been reprinted here with the permission of Fire-Earth Blog:

What sort of science is that which mandates an allegedly democratic regime to condemn hundreds of thousands of people by locking them in an area where two significant earthquakes have struck within five months, killing or injuring thousands, destroying many homes, livelihoods and much of the infrastructure?

NZ scientists: Intellectual rigor mortis set?

Posted by feww on March 18, 2011

Written and updated by a Member of FIRE-EARTH Science Team



The Government and its Royal Society of New Zealand have  released a “scientific paper” at a briefing in Wellington, concerning future earthquake risks for Christchurch and New Zealand, a report said.

“Nobody can predict when an earthquake will strike, the Prime Minister’s chief science adviser says,” according to the report.

THE BIG WHITE FACT IN THE ROOM remains that FIRE-EARTH Blog has successfully forecast earthquakes including those in New Zealand Region, Japan Region and elsewhere. AND the forecasts have been posted on this blog for everyone to see.

“The Government and the Royal Society of New Zealand today released a scientific paper at a briefing in Wellington, looking at earthquake predictions and future earthquake risks for Christchurch and New Zealand.” Report said.

“During the briefing, Sir Peter Gluckman hit out at Ken Ring’s controversial prediction that another big quake will hit Christchurch on or near March 20.”

FIRE-EARTH Moderators do not know who or what “Ken Ring” is. However, here’s a short list of possibilities as to his identity and brief:

  1. Ken Ring is another one of those ‘Internet prophets’ feeding on FIRE-EARTH quake forecasts
  2. He is a straw man created by NZ government to discredit by association earthquake forecasts released by FIRE-EARTH Blog
  3. All of the above!

[NOTE: Prior to successful earthquake forecasts being posted on FIRE-EARTH blog, the Ken Ring character had not surfaced. What’s the plan? IF Ken Ring’s latest prediction for another major earthquake on March 20, 2011 to strike Christchurch, New Zealand fails to materialize, and it probably would, then he would be “eaten alive” by the NZ Prime Minister and his cabal, the Royal Society of New Zealand and the country’s corporate media. Once Ken Ring has been discredited and severely dealt with, they hope New Zealanders would no longer take any earthquake hazard warning forecasts by any source seriously. Note also the confidence by which Gluckman et al make their ‘NO-quake’ statements, as if fully briefed on the plot!]

“Scientists could identify regions vulnerable to quakes and predict the likely magnitude of a quake but not the precise locality, depth or timing, he said.” The report added.

“Certainty as to a particular event or outcome just cannot be achieved. What therefore may happen, can only be described in terms of risks and probability.” Gluckman said.

And here’s the crunch:

“Scientifically there’s no reason not to rebuild in Christchurch,” he said.

Scientifically there’s “no reason not” to build a house of cards, or a castle in the sand …  but you don’t authoritatively influence people to occupy them, or invite thousands of visitors and their uncles to come along, too, FIRE-EARTH contends.

[More than a third of the Christchurch earthquake victims, those whose name have so far been revealed, seem to be clueless foreigners who probably thought New Zealand was a safe place.]

What sort of science is that which mandates an allegedly democratic regime to condemn hundreds of thousands of people by locking them in an area where two significant earthquakes have struck within five months, killing or injuring thousands of people, destroying many homes and much of the infrastructure?

“GNS Science chief executive Alex Malahoff and Royal Society of New Zealand vice-president Keith Hunter were also on the panel.” The report said.

May they live long enough to eat their scientific paper! And that’s a prayer, not a “curse!”

Scientists who turn politicians, or those who fail to help people staying alive shouldn’t receive any money from the public purse!

Truth is the bottom line, income from tourism, is more important to your government than human lives.

“and our govt are just people, citizens, like ourselves…”

REALLY? Are you a multimillionaire like your PM John Key?

Your PM is a greedy individual who has amassed a massive fortune, albeit from “immoral activities,” and who has shown no interest in the livelihood of quarter of a million NZ kids living in abject poverty.

That’s what you call democracy?

Canadian Tourist Killed in New Zealand

Posted by te2ataria on March 15, 2011

One Canadian Tourist Killed, Another Seriously Injured

Police have finally revealed identity of the Canadian tourist who was killed in a car crash near Hamilton last week.

He has been named as 19-year-old Cameron Chad Adrian, from Alberta, Canada.

Mr Adrian was violently killed when his car collided with a truck on State Highway 1, near Karapiro, 30km southeast of Hamilton, on Friday, according to reports.

“A 20-year-old female passenger suffered serious injuries and was taken to Waikato Hospital,” a report said.

Cooking the Death Toll

Meanwhile, as the death toll from the tragic earthquake in Japan rises, Mr Key’s gang cook the books to reduce the death toll from the Christchurch quake in an attempt to make a major tragedy look like a minor accident.

Come back a week from now and they might even deny the Christchurch quake ever occurred!!!

As for the “anti-Chinese” stance, don’t be fooled. Th egovt has already agreed to pay the family of each Chinese victim a “reasonable” cash gift, informed sources say.

However, there are two reasons why the government won’t admit the fact that they have agreed to pay additional compensation [blood money] to the Chinese victims family:

1) They score  massive political points and look good

2) The avoid having to pay similar compensation to the families of other foreign victims  including the  Filipinos, Japanese, Turkish, Iraqis, British, Australians, Irish…

On average, at least one foreigner will be killed in New Zealand every day throughout 2011.

Violent Quake Hits Christchurch

Posted by te2ataria on September 4, 2010

Violent Quake Hits New Zealand’s 2nd Most Violent City

A massive 7.4-magnitude quake struck Christchurch, the biggest city in the South Island.

The quake destroyed buildings, ripped up roads and completely paralyzed the city. Power lines, water and sewage links were cut off.

Port of Lyttelton, about 7 miles from the city center has been seriously damaged, and there were reports of two serious injuries.

Soon after the quake, the looters moved in completely cleaning out shops and other business premises.

A Much Larger Quake to Strike New Zealand

In Magnitude 7 Earthquake Hits Kermadec Islands Posted on September 30, 2008, feww wrote:

Implication for New Zealand Islands:

  • A substantial increase in the frequency of earthquake striking the twin islands.
  • More earthquakes with magnitude 6 or larger.
  • A marked increased in large explosive volcanic eruptions, especially in the following zones [also includes ‘extinct’ volcanoes]
    • Taupo Volcanic Zone
    • Bombay Hills
    • Auckland volcanic field
    • Mount Taranaki
    • Mt Horrible volcano
    • Mount Taranaki
    • Mount Cargill

Worst Case Condition for New Zealand Islands:

Will a magnitude 9.8 (MW) earthquake centered at 42° 00′ 59″ South, 175° 05′ 07″ East herald the end of New Zealand Islands?

  • Large earthquakes and massive volcanic eruptions could potentially destroy much of New Zealand structures and claim many lives.
  • Earthquake and volcano-triggered waves could also give rise to 40 to 50-meter tsunami that would engulf the coastal areas and low-lying lands throughout New Zealand [could also affect parts of Australia’s eastern seaboard,] compounding the damage.
  • A super/mega colossal Plinian/Ultra-Plinian eruption occurring in New Zealand’s North Island simultaneously [or within a short period of time] with a magnitude 9.8 earthquake off the eastern coast of New Zealand could claim many lives.
  • Probability of occurrence:
    1. Event 1.  A magnitude 9.8 earthquake striking off the eastern coast of New Zealand with (i) the foreshocks ripping through Auckland, Hamilton, Taupo areas, (ii) the mainshock leveling Wellington, Palmerstone North, Marlborough, Nelson and Christchurch, and (iii) the aftershock causing substantial damage as far south as Invercargill: 85%
    2. Event 2. A super/ mega colossal Plinian/Ultra-Plinian eruption in the North Island: 72%  [South Island: 57%]
    3. Event 1 and Event 2 occurring simultaneously, or within a short period of time: 64 %
