Police State: AGAIN police abuses powers in anti-euthanasia sting

The so called police watchdog (IPCA) has received at least three complaints concerning police use of a drink-driving checkpoint to track people who attended a euthanasia meeting.

Legal experts have expressed “deeply concerns” about “worrying abuse of power” by police.

Exit International director said senior New Zealand lawyers had been in contact with him after the story of the police anti-euthanasia sting was published. http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/85777828/lawyers-back-group-caught-up-in-police-euthanasia-sting

Safe in New Zealand: Havelock North gastro followed by E. coli contamination in Hastings

Posted by te2ataria on August 20, 2016

Sent by a concerned reader

WTF: Victims of Havelock North gastro outbreak could develop auto-immune disease

Small number of people hit by Havelock North campylobacter outbreak could develop a serious neurological condition called Guillain-Barre Syndrome, says Professor Michael Baker, a leading public health academic of the department of public health at Otago University.

“Guillain-Barre Syndrome, or GBS, sees the body’s immune system attack nerves that control movement and feeling. It develops one to two weeks after a campylobacter infection,” said a report.

Hastings water contaminated

“Test results this afternoon for the Hastings town supply produced positive results for E. coli bacteria. E. coli can be an indicator of faecal contamination and can cause gastric illness.

“Hastings’ water, supplied from an underground aquifer, is quite separate from the Havelock North town supply which was found to have been contaminated with campylobacter and led to more than 4000 people falling ill with symptoms such as vomiting, diarrhoea, fever, headaches and muscle pain,” according to a report.

Exposure to Toxic Poisoning in New Zealand Lakes and Waterways

New Zealand’s intensive animal industries produce about 4 times more manure than could safely be used as fertilizer, said a report.

New Zealand farmers used a total of 820,000 tons of fertilizers to their croplands in 1999 (204 kg/ha of cropland each year, about twice as much as the U.S. and 220 percent of the world average). New Zealand also uses about twice as much pesticides per hectare of cropland (2,215 kg/ha, 1996 data – more recent data not available.) than the U.S.

South Canterbury has highest rates of gastro illnesses in the South Island

“South Canterbury’s high rate of gastro illness is attributed to the high number of people in physical contact with farm animals either through work or on lifestyle blocks”, said a report.

The statistics (based on per 100,000 population) show 250 cases of campylobacteriosis for South Canterbury (compared to 180 nationally), 28 cryptosporidiosis (compared to 18 nationally), and 50 salmonellosis (compared to 22 nationally)

Wild winds cause chaos along the South Island

Posted by te2ataria on March 10, 2016

Fire burns Christchurch homes as wild winds wreak havoc along South Island

“An out-of-control farm burnoff, fanned by the gales, has destroyed one home near Christchuch, with many other residents evacuated from their properties.

“Meanwhile the SH1 was closed by a truck fire near Kaikoura when wind spread the flames to scrub verges. Flights have been cancelled, trees knocked down and roofs lifted in Invercargill, while there are reports of a campervan blowing off the Tokanui-Gorge Road Highway near Fortrose, trampolines blowing through neighbourhoods, and trees down in numerous locations.” http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/77768872/fire-threatens-homes-as-wild-winds-cause-havoc

DAY 84 of latest ‘TOURISTS or truth?’ campaign in NZ

About two-thirds of the road fatalities in New Zealand go unreported by police, or unrecorded by Ministry of Transport [“Minitru”.]

One way to manipulate the road toll statistics is to report most of the dead as “seriously” or “critically” injured. This way, if the news leaks, the “seriously injured” could always be pronounced dead as a result of their injuries!

Ministry of Transport (heavily doctored) Road Toll:

doctored road toll 10-3-16

http://www.transport.govt.nz/research/roadtoll/

  • Blog estimate: [About 900 people are killed on NZ roads each year.] Most probably, up to 178 road fatalities have occurred in NZ since 1 January 2016.

China rejects New Zealand’s “Miracle Water”

Posted by te2ataria on January 21, 2016

Our “purest water” 40 times more polluted than even the Chinese standards

NZ’s 100% clean and yellowish green “miracle water” contains 40 times more nitrate than even the Chinese allow in their diet.

Thanks to our state-of-the-art fertilizers, industrial dairy farming and tourism, all of which produce millions of tonnes of feces that we carefully spray EVERYWHERE, in order to scientifically dispose of, our best drinking water contains at least 40 times more nitrate [among googols of other colourful goolies,] than even the Chinese care for.

Hawke’s Bay company’s first shipment of drinking water rejected by China (OUCH!)

New water bottling company Miracle Water, near Hastings, sent its first shipment of drinking water to China late last year.

Company spokeswoman Louise Harvey said on arrival in China the water, which is drawn from the Heretaunga Plains, was found to contain nitrite levels too high for the local market.

“To class water as ‘spring or artesian’ for the New Zealand market the maximum level of the naturally occurring nitrite is 0.2mg/L while the Chinese maximum level is 0.005mg/L. Unfortunately the levels of nitrite were higher than the Chinese standard hence the product was returned,” she said. http://www.stuff.co.nz/business/76117504/hawkes-bay-companys-first-shipment-of-drinking-water-rejected-by-china
