UPDATE — FASCISM RISING IN NEW ZEALAND

Posted by te2ataria on June 7, 2019

On June 6 the Blog posted a comment and question sent by a reader in Europe:

75 years ago my family lost four of its sons, brothers… in D-Day landings “to defeat fascism”

Today, NZ media pander to fascism by way of self censorship!

A message to the editor and board of directors at NZ Herald:

WHY did you remove columnist Matt McCarten’s article (linked below) from NZ Herald archive?

“Forget terrorists – it’s the secret police the public needs to fear”  [http://www.nzherald.co.nz/section/1/story.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=10471106&pnum=0]

The blog Moderators searched the NZ Herald archive, which included numerous entries by  McCarten, looking for the missing article. No trace found among the 703 articles listed on 71 pages that were written by, attributed or made a reference to the columnist! [https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nzh-search/NZH/Matt+McCarten/71/]

Using various search terms, the blog Moderators searched for the missing article on six different search engines. Several references to the article were found, but non showed up on NZ Herald website.

On June 7, we repeated the same searches. Lo and behold, the article, or a variation thereof, which clearly wasn’t there a day earlier, showed on google search engine with the following, slightly modified URL:

Matt McCarten: Forget terrorists – it’s the secret police the public needs to fear

20 Oct, 2007 6:01pm

Matt McCarten, NZ Herald columnist: “Forget terrorists – it’s the secret police the public needs to fear” [Image may be subject to copyright.]

Key Points:

Our Secret Intelligence Service (SIS) and our nation’s senior police officers breathlessly informed us this week that a terrorist cell and their secret training camp in the Ureweras had been smashed.

Hundreds of police synchronised the storming of homes of Maori sovereignty supporters, anarchist revolutionaries and environmental activists, arresting 17 so-called terrorists. Apparently, police have been hiding out in the bushes photographing these individuals, some of whom were dressed up in military gear, shooting guns and even burning napalm.

Our secret police and political establishment must be wetting themselves with excitement at finally capturing “real terrorists”. The only problem is that New Zealand is such a small country, everybody knows everybody else. Do people really think Tame Iti is a New Zealand Osama Bin Laden? What a joke. Instead of using scores of Darth Vader stormtroopers, couldn’t they have just sent the local community constable to arrest Iti? It’s not like he’s ever resisted arrest before.

Iti is one of those characters whose sense of humour and mischief has entertained us for years. He has always been a colourful orator and at worst makes us face some unpalatable truths. At best he is a great entertainer.

Iti winds up the establishment to draw attention to political issues or, as some of his detractors would claim, to himself. His latest political stunts have included running around half naked in front of the Waitangi Tribunal and shooting a British flag on the ground. The local police know him so well that they didn’t even bother to tell him off.

It wasn’t until this incident was broadcast on TV that our political masters insisted that he be charged. The subsequent court case just turned into another case of political mischief and self-promotion which would have had him chuckling at the furore.

The young idealists arrested with him were traipsing around his bush camp. No doubt they were firing guns and if the police say they set off napalm, I’m inclined to believe them. But does this mean that an eclectic group of Maori, political and environmental activists were being turned into a terrorist army?

Some of the young people I know who were arrested are actually vegans who don’t even believe in killing animals, let alone human beings. When you get the police searching homes of environmental activists trying to save snails on the West Coast, you know that things have got really silly.

There’s been a lot of talk this week about politicians overreacting about the police actions, but I suggest that the overreaction has been on the side of the police.

I never thought that there was a need for the Terrorism Suppression Act and believe that it was motivated by our establishment’s need to be seen by our international allies to be doing our bit for George Bush’s “war on terror”.

This week, New Zealand proudly signed up to become part of the US database of suspected terrorists. I would have thought that after the Ahmed Zaoui debacle, our secret police would hesitate to take the word of overseas agencies.

Let’s not even mention the bogus intelligence from these same guys to justify the invasion of Iraq for their oil.

Sinisterly, the Suppression of Terrorism Act is currently under review and there’s a proposal to include as terrorists people who damage economic infrastructure.

That is so broad it could include anything. For example, during the Springbok tour, people destroyed television aerials which were transmitting the rugby game. Under these new recommendations, they would be charged as terrorists.

The current young activists held without bail can stay in jail for up to two years without being convicted. The information that I have received is that the police have transcripts of all their phone calls and texts as well as all their personal emails. That can only mean that our citizens are being widely electronically monitored.

Considering it was the SIS who briefed the Prime Minister and the Leader of the Opposition, one can only assume now that our secret police routinely spy on our citizens.

What is disturbing is that many of these people’s friends, work colleagues and family are having their homes raided and their property confiscated. I suspect this is more to do with spreading the net as wide and far as possible to see what comes up.

My opponents may accuse me of being pro-terrorist or at least an apologist for them: I am not. What I don’t like, however, is the sinister way in which the Suppression of Terrorism Act is being used against people engaged in domestic political activity.

People have always talked about overthrowing the government, smashing capitalism, wrecking animal-testing laboratories and other such things. But have we had such acts carried out in New Zealand? Very rarely and very minor.

And even when people damage property or even hurt individuals in political activity the police have always been able to arrest them using the Crimes Act. The Suppression of Terrorism Act – even its name is provocative – is a political weapon against dissent.

Those of us opposed to this act are now seeing it abused in the way we feared it might. We shouldn’t be worrying about the antics of Tame Iti. We should be instead very worried about the creeping powers of our secret police.

Polynesian community made scapegoat for violence against Asians

Posted by te2ataria on July 5, 2008

10,000 protest over violence against Asians in New Zealand

Conveniently, the Polynesian community is being singled out for the violence!

WELLINGTON, July 5 (Xinhua) — An estimated 10,000 people marched on Saturday in New Zealand’s largest city of Auckland in protest against violence crime against Asians.

Police said the demonstration, in the suburb of Botany Downs, extended 2.5 km, Radio New Zealand reported.

The march was organized by the Asian Anti-Crime Group. It began at 11:30 am on Saturday (23:30 GMT Friday) in protest over recent killings in south Auckland.

The chairman of the group, Peter Low, hoped it will alert politicians to how people feel.

Low said most marchers had direct experience of crime and live in fear, adding that they want tougher laws and more police.

Low said politicians have ignored the feelings of people, especially the Asian population, for too long but the numbers protesting on Saturday means they have to listen.

Amid heavy rain, the march moved to the sounds of drums. Some people bore black coffins and placards with the names of those killed. Others carried their pictures.

Three people of Asian descent have died in homicides in Manukau City [South Auckland] over the past month. Liquor store owner Navtej Singh, 30, was fatally shot at his shop on June 7.

A week later, Yan Ping Yang, 80, died after having been attacked by an intruder in her home.

On June 16, Joanne Wang, 39, was knocked down by a stolen vehicle in a shopping mall car park after her handbag was snatched. She died in hospital.

The opposition National Party believed Auckland’s Asian community has proven itself a force to be reckoned with, after turnout at Saturday’s demonstration against crime doubled organizers’ estimates.

Pansy Wong, a member of the parliament of the National Party, said many Asian people are fed up with out-of-control violence and tired of inaction. She said people feel the issue is being swept under the carpet. Wong said the Asian community is organizing a petition to take to Wellington, demanding a tougher line on violent crime.

To All Foreign Parents Who Send Their Kids to NZ

If you love your children, why do you send them to New Zealand?

School bullying spurs human rights call

By LANE NICHOLS – The Dominion Post | Tuesday, 03 June 2008

The Human Rights Commission is being asked to investigate violence and human rights abuses of children in schools.

A group of Lower Hutt parents allege a “systematic failure” of state agencies responsible for protecting children from bullying and playground violence.

The group – whose sons were victimised at Hutt Valley High School in December – have written to commissioner Rosslyn Noonan seeking a nationwide inquiry.

The Government is poised to unveil measures to tackle bullying after a spate of violent incidents in schools.

But it is under pressure to strengthen rules around schools’ human rights responsibilities, to help address bullying and widespread under-achievement.

Former Amnesty International head Ced Simpson said New Zealand had obligations under international treaties to ensure children were safe and received a decent education.

But violence and estimates that 20 per cent of pupils were failing in schools meant children’s human rights were being undermined.

His group, Human Rights Communities in Education, has met Education Minister Chris Carter and Education Ministry boss Karen Sewell. It wants changes to schools’ national guidelines.

Schools should also introduce confidential pupil surveys to identify actual bullying levels, as the problem was probably under-reported, he said. “Educational achievement and bullying are obviously the key issues. It is important that schools have a clear regulatory environment which makes it clear what their responsibilities are.”

Writing to Ms Noonan, the parents called state agencies’ dysfunctional response to Hutt Valley High violence a “systematic failure likely to be involved in other cases of school violence”.

They allege some schools are under-reporting violence to protect their reputations and attract lucrative foreign fee-paying pupils, but say state agencies must act.

“The impact of school-based violence is wider than the physical pain suffered … Fear cripples the ability to learn, denying the victim’s right to education.”

The ministry says schools can already hold confidential “eliminating violence” surveys. They had to provide safe environments for pupils and follow New Zealand laws, including the Bill of Rights.

Schools were monitored by the Education Review Office, which found most had good practices to manage bullying.

No plans existed to amend national guidelines, but respect for human rights was a core value in the new curriculum. (Source) © Fairfax New Zealand Limited 2007.

The so-called human rights [sic] commissioner Rosslyn Noonan has made a mockery of human rights in New Zealand. Her role is not to uphold human rights, but to protect the establishment and their “asset,” the New Zealand government, against complaints of breaches of human rights. The outcome of this complaint would only serve to strengthen the case against the grotesquely inappropriate choice of “commissioner,” Rosslyn Noonan, and the government-controlled human rights commission!

Violent assaults among secondary school students are increasing, and girls are adopting a similar “pack mentality” to boy bullies. —Children’s Commissioner.

A Marlborough Girls’ College student needed hospital treatment on Tuesday after an assault in the school grounds, and on Thursday night a 14-year-old Waikato boy was beaten unconscious by a group of classmates at a Raglan Area School social. (Source)
