Why is there graffiti about police violence against women in Wairarapa

Someone I don’t know that well told me about some chalking in Masterton about police violence towards women and I told her it was me.  Then I told her what happened and why I had done it, so even though I have mentioned it before on this website I will tell you again.  I also want those who are interested in what happened to me to know local media have REFUSED to say anything about it and have censored what has happened for years.

I did that graffiti in CHALK PEN on vacant shops in Masterton because a police officer violently assaulted me for a non-violent protest about discrimination and injustices I am being subjected to for asking for the professional health care i am entitled to under ACC and mental health services.

I have protested about the issues of professional health care for mentally injured abuse victims for many years.  Since I was raped, couldn’t get the help I knew I desperately needed and read the ACC legislation and other health, disability and human rights laws.

In all the times I have been arrested up until July 2016 I HAD NEVER BEEN ASSAULTED AND THREATENED – yes police might have been a bit rough with me and nasty ones could be mean – but NOTHING LIKE WHAT HAPPENED OUTSIDE CARTERTON POLICE STATION.  That was a full on violent assault and the next 3 hours with police was horrendous, I am still traumatised thinking about it.

So police assaulted me, I have medical evidence and CCTV footage to prove it that never made it to court because it was bought up during my charges for wilful trespass (which I won) and graffiti (which I was convicted of).  I am appealing this conviction.

I complained about the assault to police the next day and to IPCA soon afer, I was told they would deal with it after my case went to court for the graffiti protest and other wilful trespass charges for other NON-VIOLENT protests.  I was using art I had done in retaliation for police working for ACC in charging me with MISUSE OF A TELEPHONE FOR PHONING THEM SCREAMING TO HAVE MY CARE REINSTATED from 2009 – I had won two reviews and was very unwell.

I was never told until the court case came up – which took 18 mths & three times in court to even hear, our court system is sooooooooo bad – that the assault complaint would be dealt with there.  How could they do this, I had assaumed a case of assault would be done separately and investigated thoughly – IT IS NOT!  So the officers lied in court, the judge believed them and not my lawyer or me – he crust old judge and one of those judges who had been dragged in to try and cope with our GROSSLY OVERSTRETCHED, TO THE POINT OF ILLEGAL, court system our govt had created.

So the judge found the two officers justified in their assault – their version of the assault and what happened – not the truth.

I was so angry and so upset – if they could get away with assaulting me like that, then it would only get worse if I kept protesting.  ONe of the officers told me that, he said if I kept doing it I WOULD SEE HOW BAD POLICE COULD BE – I am passionate about my activism over abusive mental health care, I know what I do is important and if I could get professional care applied to me and other abuse victims I could save so much unnecessary suffering, violence, addiction and suicide.  It is illegal to terrorise an Civil Society Activists like me in New Zealand – in any commonwealth country – in any country that belongs to the United Nations.  I know my rights very well.

I stewed on it for a couple of months then knew I had to do something as my mental health was getting even worse.  When all the news came out about Harvey Weinstein sexually abusing women and the latest thing with Russell McVeagh lawyers I felt empowered enough to carry out my plan – terrified as I was of being assaulted even worse by Wairarapa police.

My plan was to destroy or make police take down the White Ribbon banner encouraging women to speak out about violence by men in their foyer – the foyer I had sat in extremely traumatised rocking backwards and forwards begging to go home – where every person who came past I recoiled from, especially the officer who had threatened me – after they had violently assaulted degraded and discriminated against me.

So I came up with throwning red paint over it as the easiest way – and it was.  So I went there, threw red paint on the banner, left a piece of my art on the counter and left the building, nobody had come out so used my can of white chalk spray and did a swastika on end of it.  Left there and headed for Lower Hutt where I chalked Judge JP Butler and swastika on teh building and then went to Wellington police station where I handed myself in.

The Wellington police were so nice, they were not very impressed with what I was telling them about the assault and what had happened through the courts etc.  I told them Wellington police had NEVER hurt me like that and I knew what those two officers had done was illegal.  They made me talk about it though and I hadn’t realised they would do that – it still makes me really unwell upset and traumatised and I’ve never been able to talk to a mental health professional about it – because ACC and mental health are still refusing me services.

i do the chalking on the buildings in my community to be heard – because local and national media refuse to tell my story, refuse to say what is happening to me and why.  I don’t understand why they are covering up what is happening to a person who is a NON- VIOLENT and challenging protester – protesting about mental health services for abuse victims etc.

So that is most of the story from the person who chalked about police violence – that is the truth, there is more to it after years of protesting and being harmed, refer to rest of my website if you want to know and of course my poetry – that says it in an even more real and feeling way.

Leaders of New Zealand and those who uphold law and justice are a huge disappointment.  They say one thing and do exactly the opposite then use media to cover it up or trivialise what is going on.

New Zealand used to be such a cool place – I know it was never perfect – but what is happening now is grossly immoral, corrupt and violates even our own terrorism laws, it violates laws against psychological torture as well and of course human rights and other laws. And the most disturbing thing is those organisations like Health & Disability commission, Human Rights Commission and Ombudsman ARE THE WORST OFFENDERS!!!!!!!!

🙁  And I said I didn’t want to cry but how can I not – every National party voter wanted this, and every Labour party voter condoned it in their party as well.  They created this environment of dog eat dog and created proverty then hurt the poor until we can make money out of them through psychotropic drugs, justice industry and even social services/psychology industry.  They did all this to replace the jobs in manufacturing OUR OWN GOVERNMENT drove out of New Zealand since the 1980s.

Kia kaha and aroha to us all.

My Lifes in Boxes

My life’s in boxes little pieces
A wreckage on these hostile beaches
On TV paper radio
No-one says the things I know

The gods of war fight kiwi poor
PR stands guard at every door
They numb the masses to the harm they cause
Tell me and others ‘the fault’s all yours’

Someone made a big mistake
Gave power and glory to those who take
Its social problems they created
Loved the rich & poor they hated

Our leaders ears are painted on
Responsibility they run from
Focus on what’s bright and new
Degrade, despise, reject the few

And those who call the good to action
Are considered some sort of loony faction
Where have this country’s morals gone
Protect the weak, curtail the strong


Seamus Boyer Blow Fly Editor Wairarapa News condoning violence against women

I’m really upset about my situation at the moment, WINZ threatening to cut my disability benefit because I can’t see a doctor because I can’t get any mental health services to help me.  I’ve been on invalids for years and still I am forced to go through this nightmare year after year – at the same time as ACC and MH refusing me professional health care I am entitled to by law.  As well as being unable to get a lawyer to force them to do what the law says and get the police to stop terrorising me for legally protesting about this gross injustice.

So I went chalking today on windows of empty shops around Masterton – I then phoned Wairarapa News to tell them what I had done.  I got Seamus Boyer and his behaviour was really really strange, really derogatory, patronising and really strange.  A classic example of this GASLIGHTING behaviour of people in abusive power relationships.

So I called, said who I was, said I had been chalking about police violence and suicide – just so he knew and could report it.  So he launched into speaking over me, saying we’ve talked about this Jayne, (which we havn’t – he’s talked about it but he wouldn’t listen to anything I said or what was happening to me).  I don’t intend to say anything about what you are doing, you’re not listening Jayne, I don’t intend to change my mind.

When I said but we havn’t talked about anything, he repeats we’ve talked about this, I’m ending this call, I’m not interested in anything you have to say Jayne.  Really really creepy.  HE doesn’t know anything about me, he has never talked to me about any of this, except to disagree with anything I have told him about what is happening in Wairarapa.  He is a classic example of a radicalised person, just like Germans were like prior to WWII, listening to everything those in power were saying and in complete denial about the suffering and harm they were inflicting against vulnerable minority groups.

Sadly I lost it & swore at him before he hung up – I am devastated and distraught because it is yet more confirmation of how red-neck and right-wing extremist Wairarapa news media are.  That is why we are No 1 for suicide in this region, no 1 for compulstory treatment orders, No 1 for use of psychotropic drugs on disabled people, No 1 for homelessness (most disabled poor been driven from this region already).  It is a mass psychosis with these people in power – exactly what happens in abusive power relationships – classic GASLIGHTING of women.

Seamus Boyer IS RESPONSIBLE for the suffering and suicides of dozens of Wairarapa people, because he covers up the gross miscarriage of justice happening to me and so many disabled poor people in this region.  It is deeply disturbing just how creepy these people are.  So don’t believe anything you see in Wairarapa News – or Times Age, they are even more OLD BOYS NETWORK.

He doesn’t want to know what has happened to me at the hands of police, ACC, mental health and my community because he can’t live in denial if he hears what is going on.  He doesn’t want to know what I do as a Civil Society actor, making submissions to Select Committees and United Nations Human Rights committees.

Some serious KARMA coming to that man and all those he protects. ewwwwww

NZ Human Rights Universal Periodic Review Consultation Wellington

Arrived at Victoria University for the event, people from Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade organising it.  Was desperate to find someone I could talk to about getting protection from police as a Civil Society Actor.   Started talkng to this woman Sally, was upset, she told me she had been involved in human rights sector for years.  I challenged her that it was people like her who had caused the human rights issues we now had, that I now had.

She became very passive aggressive to the point of creepy, they bought me a young woman from Human Rights Commission & I immediately moved away from her like I was frightened – I can’t help it, its a reaction to all the times they have not helped me & hurt me – after all those years begging for their help and being discredited, ignored and having police etc attack me for it.

I wasn’t in a good place so I couldn’t talk to them – there’s no point – I know there is no point after 15 years.  Only place I am ever going to get help is the United Nations, HRC are set up to protect the government and New Zealand’s reputation – they even say that in their promotion of the event.  They say they trying to protect NZs reputation BLATANTLY – groan.

Sally & another woman couldn’t/woudn’t believe what has been happening with police, mental health, ACC and the justice system.  When I said about throwing the paint on White Ribbon banner in police station and chalking swastika on building Sally became really weird.  Apparently NOBODY is allowed to use that symbol etc etc, (she also called me Sweetie one part of it).  I asked her if she knew how the HUman Rights Act came about, she said she did.  When I my use of that symbol was to represent gross violations of my rights and I had every right to use it, she kept saying I wasn’t – so did the young HRC woman.   I tried to explain about people being driven to self-harm, violence, addiction suicide etc due to human rights violations by our government – she didn’t want to know.  NAZIs did it to people, in 21st century govt has worked out how to drive people to doing it themselves.  NZ has highest rate of woman self-harming in the world.

I told her she was trivialising and discrediting what was happening to me and 10,000s of other mentally injured abuse victims with her ‘extreme’ reaction to me using the swastika.  She said she wasn’t -but she was.  She was incredibly patronising and behaving really oddly, other people came around.  I knew it was time to end the conversation when people start reacting like that.  So I headed into the lecture theatre to sit down, a very dark skinned woman with braids had been listening and tried to stop me, she asked the man standing near the door to stop me from entering.  I wasn’t having any of that so just went around him, while he was trying to work out why I would be stopped.  Lots of practice & a complete lack of respect for govt officials gives you the strength to ignore them.

I also told Sally I was human sewage and she kept telling me I wasn’t, over and over again.  I said I wasn’t asking her opinion on it, I knew how I was being treated, I was a poet and song-writer and had written a song about it, I knew I was human sewage.  Her reaction was very strange.

I got in the meeting – about 50 people – mostly from agencies WHO HAVE BEEN CAUSING THESE HUMAN RIGHTS ISSUES – groan.  I had begged for help from EVERY ONE OF THEM and been told they don’t deal with individual cases – question is how do they represent human rights violations if they refuse to talk to the people having their rights violated.  Some of them loved the sound of their own voices.  The people running it were middle class ignorant people, obviously doing very well pretending we have human rights in New Zealand and staying ignorant to what is really happening.

By this stage the organisers were in a flap, outside, Sally came in and proceeded to tell me I had to leave – I looked at her and said NO.  Yes apparently I had to leave by order of Victoria University Security because I was trespassed.  WTF – I was shocked, don’t remember being given a trespass order by them, even though did have an altercation with security during a chalk protest outside couple of years ago.  Police were called, but nothing came of it.

So spoke up in front of everybody and told them what was happening, started crying, told the room of people they were trying to have me removed, that I just wanted to stay – it was related to my LEGAL non-violent protests and I needed to stay to find out what to do to get protection and justice.  I asked them to back me up, only 2 people did, the organiser up the front went out and had a talk to security, came back in and whispered I could stay.  They don’t realise there would have been NO WAY they would have got me out of there without police arresting me – NO WAY.

What a way to start the consultation meeting – with such a blatant violation of my human and civil rights.  Sally came back in the room and tried to sit beside me – I asked her to go away several times, she refused.  She moved a few seats away from me, but came closer at one point – she was making me feel really uncomfortable and was even turned towards me.  I just tried to ignore her.  Why would someone sit beside you, when you obviously didn’t like them or want them there – it was really really creepy & I will be making a complaint about her inappropriate behaviour.  An ex-social worker – groan, some of those people are very mentally disturbed – passive aggressive & DO NOT like being challenged – they just want people saying nice things about them.

We went around the room with microphone, most people were talking about violations of human rights against mentally ill people – but from an advocacy perspective.  Got to me and I did it from my perspective.

Took some notes, supported people when they said things I know to be true – groaned, closed my eyes and shook my head when I heard BULLSHIT from people who had no idea what they were talking about.

Talked to a couple of people afterwards about what going on with police, everything they suggested I had tried.  They were shocked at what was going on – because obviously they don’t come into contact with people like me – but I had phoned every one of those organisations (eg Amnesty & UN NZ group and been told to go away, they didn’t want to know about individual cases.  Not the exact person I was speaking to, but others.)

Left & went to Parliament was upset about what had happened – they had actually tried to have me removed from that very important meeting on how to approach United Nations about human rights abuses I was being subjected to. WTF.  And that woman Sally had acted really strangely – I’m sure a psychitarist would be able to explain her disturbing behaviour, especially about sitting next to me when I asked her not to – what was that?

At parliament I sat there mostly just crying & upset in front of my signs, my biggest sign was WORTHELESS SUICIDAL ABUSE VICTIM, PLEASE KILL ME – that’s how I felt.  A nice couple of tourists came up to me and asked why there was so much suicide in New Zealand.  So I told them why, was thinking later how I should do a VLOG about it.  They completely understood about how NZers were so looked after by their government but after neo-liberalism they were terrorised by them.

I asked their nationality as I couldn’t pick it – the were Isralie – there was another person their listening as well – an American, she agreed with everything I was saying about neo-liberalism government etc – was ashamed of Trump.  I said how I didn’t really understand the conflicts in their region and was focused on my own country, didn’t believe it was anything really to do with me on the other side of the world.  I did say I knew they had serious issues of allocation of resources like water and places to grow food, which I am sure was fuelling their problems.

As we talked it was apparent in New Zealand the poorest are denied a safe place to live and access to land required to grow food.  They have welfare & homes for disabled in Israel – so does New Zealand, but I said how they had taken many away and even though they gave you just enough to live, rents were skyrocketing and payments weren’t.  I also commented that even though there was welfare you were degraded & hated in teh community when you had to rely on it.  Even your own family were ashamed of you.

An Indian man from MSD (sounded like a senior executive the way he was talking) came along, he was nice and wanted to get me help.  First thing he asked me is if it was MSD who were not helping me.  I assured him my WINZ case manager was one of my biggest support people, she was an amazing person and was often upset she couldn’t get me ACC care and mental health services I was entitled to.  He was relieved – he checked about three more times, he was nice & went into Parliament to try and get me to see an MP – once he heard how serious my situation was.  He never came back, I told him they wouldnt’ see me, they were all scared of me but he could try if he wanted to.  I told them I was in contact with them and nothing had changed.

Then DAVE came over – Dave is one of the older security guards I DO NOT LIKE after a couple of incidents which were grossly unfair.   Apparently people had been in to complain to security about me and several had called police – WTF – what he said came across as a threat – hell it is a threat, but that’s the abusive process at the moment – that’s what all those people in suicide prevention have done – turned suicidal people into CRIINALS.  I know how to get out of having police or mental health called, there no way they going to commit me in a million years.

Had a long talk with Dave, so we sort of reconciled our differences, although I cried several times and said how traumatised I was by the things he had done.  He never apologised of course.  He agreed with most of what I was saying, he also said staff had been pretty traumatised by the man who set himself alight on the lawn.

At one point there was a cameraman setting up for someone I didn’t recognised, obviously to do with a news programme of some sort.  Maybe it was about the court case of woman helping her mum suicide and my sign sort of related to that.  I know he set up so I was in teh background, but I couldn’t bare to watch TV news tonight after they went on and on about National party leadership.

Left about 3.30pm and headed home.  I have protested 100s of times now, EVERY time I go out always learn something & always meet some really interesting people.  Usually learn something about how bad the system is as well – but today was the weirdest.  Those MFAT people are completely radicalised, they truly believe people are getting what the government and laws say they are.  Thank God all our submissions will go to the United Nations, I’ll make one to MFAT by 21st June 2018, but I know they will ignore it – as they ignore all my submissions on human rights etc.

What a day – I want to encourage people with human rights and other injustice issues TO BE IDLE NO MORE – GET OUT IN THE WORLD, OUT IN THE STREET, it is essential if we want things to change.

Kia kaha & Aroha to us all.




Psychological abuse – GASLIGHTING – by Wairarapa police New Zealand

9 February 2018


Peter Jackson &

David Rutherford

Human Rights Commission

PO Box 12411




(NOTE: this letter was also emailed to Secretary for Justice Andrew Bridgman, Jacinda Ardern PM, Andrew Little Minister for Justice, Stuart Nash Minister for Police, Kieran McNaulty MP, Ron Mark MP, Jan Logie, Mojo Mathes, Carterton Mayor John Booth & Lynn Patterson Masterton Mayor, Wairarapa Times Age and Wairarapa News)

Dear Sirs

This letter is to multiple people, not just those on the address above, I can only write this once. I beg for help so often and am completely discredited, degraded & criminally neglected for telling the truth about what is happening to me (and many other people I am sure).

I refer to the letter 12013 and the absolutely insulting patronising response about Disabled people purposely left to rot on welfare because of gross miscarriage of justice currently perpetrated by our cruel immoral and corruption neo-liberal controlled government and justice agencies. The three arms of government all being grossly corrupted by this economic movement now being called a terrorist religion.

You are talking about improving employment outcomes for disabled people like myself, when I am being illegally denied professional treatment care rehabilitation and a safe home to live in by ACC. If I received the assistance I am entitled to I would be able to return to work.  Along with being terrorised by police and others for asking for the health care and justice I know I am entitled to under law – especially Human Rights laws that you are supposed to uphold.

The treatment of disabled people being denied the right to work has nothing to do with societal attitudes it is purely economic and relates to the attitude of our corrupt immoral cruel leaders – it is nothing to do with society – they don’t even know what is going on. They teach discrimination of less than 100% productive workers at university – any person who does an economics paper as part of their degree will be taught to get the maximum productivity out of staff. The ideas of running an advertising campaign to ‘brainwash’ (which is illegal under Bill of Rights & Human Rights) society to be nice to disabled people is deeply flawed & deeply disturbing.

The discrimination I face almost daily for not working has been ingrained in people for 30 years since neo-liberals drove jobs overseas & impoverished 100,000s New Zealanders purposely – then blamed them for their situation – especially disabled people. I face this discrimination, not only in my community but mostly from mental health services, politicians, police, lawyers, justice services and your organisation. You know that because you know who I am and why I protest against you – why I put up pieces of art with swastika’s on in your office – because you are leading the persecution of disabled people by refusing to protect them and uphold the law.

Currently I am being terrorised by police yet again for my LEGAL and completely justified protests about not receiving the PROFESSIONAL mental health care I am entitled to from ACC (after winning two reviews in 2010 & 2011). ACC review decisions are legally binding, it is illegal to not reinstate my care from 2009 and yet they do it and use impairments related to my disorder to continue the psychological abuse. They do this and I beg you to help and protect me from this gross violation of my rights and you do absolutely nothing – you bring out propaganda saying they should treat me better.

Police violently assault me and threaten me with worse violence if I continue to protest – I am assuming worse violence means what happened to Louise Nicholas and I know for a fact includes psychological abuse using the justice system. I stopped sending you my complaints of serious violations of my rights, which puts my life at risk on a regular basis – you have done absolutely nothing to help me – in fact you participate in using police to terrorise me further – as does the Ombudsman.

Today I sit here writing this terrified at what lengths, neo-liberal elements in police are prepared to go to in order to drive me to suicide, self-harm and more.

I don’t know how to begin because of the extremely life-threatening disorder I now have after years of medical & criminal neglect I have COMPOUNDING Complex PTSD. So bringing up all the traumas causes me significant suffering and torment, makes me highly suicidal and there is nowhere I can turn for help. I was denied professional health care in December after an assessment by a CCDHB psychologist and psychiatrist. I was dumped onto a social worker who caused me significant harm after only a few weeks because he had no concept of seriousness of my impairments (even though I told him).

I currently have no doctor, I am in constant physical pain with my kidneys, hips & ankle, I have another skin cancer but I won’t be able to have this one addressed because I am too terrified to interact with health providers now, after years of discrimination. The very people who supposed to help me are instrumental in discriminating against and persecuting me.

PLEASE NOTE: I am in intelligent person and writer I have an Oxford Dictionary I bought when studying law at Victoria immediately prior to the rape, I know the meaning of persecution and I am using it correctly in this instance. I DO NOT HAVE A MENTAL HEALTH ISSUE that involves paranoia and delusions of persecution, which is how I am treated by your agency and every other I beg for health care and justice from.

So 2 years ago I attempted to attend the court case by Tony Ellis of 3 mentally ill men for torture. I had already tried to take a case of torture myself against ACC and failed at court – I have proof of this. I had already begged your office and attorney-general to allow me to take a case and you both refused to acknowledge what was happening to me. I have been unable to get a lawyer to protect me and my rights in 15 years. I have a letter from my previous criminal lawyer that advises I have serious unmet legal needs. I can provide that if required – as I know you don’t believe anything I say.

Before attending the Tony Ellis trial I phoned High Court security and told them I would be protesting outside and attending court but would not be doing anything but watching – so I could learn how Mr Ellis presented the case so I could do one myself – as I couldn’t get a lawyer, was desperate to return to work and didn’t want to die of my disorder (which is highly dangerous according to all international evidence).

As I went into the court I was confronted by security and told I was not allowed to go, I became very upset as I had done everything required of me, I needed to know this information or I couldn’t get justice I desperately needed. I continued to walk into the court and was violently assaulted by security, I was crying and deeply upset. I had never been assaulted by security before in all my years of being arrested and protesting – I have video footage of some of what happened. When police arrived I was curled up in a ball on the floor against the wall, with a sign in front of me, distraught and traumatised, I have photos of the sign & me looking up at 6 men towering over me. Police arrested me and were very nice, I never resist arrest. I made a formal complaint of assault against High Court security, a complaint that was handled by Sgt Q Hoera, he interviewed me but did nothing about what happened. Even though I know the law, I know what security are allowed to do and they overstepped their authority and the law.

Around this time I was extremely unwell, still begging ACC to reinstate my care from 2009, still being ignored and impairments related to my disability being used against me. I had made multiple complaints to police under Sections 150A 151 155 157 of the Crimes Act, but was ignored. I was phoning ACC remote claims unit – which I had been dumped on because I was angry at being denied professional health care I am legally entitled to after winning 2 reviews – in an extremely unwell and psychotic state screaming at them to return my care.

When I asked for a copy of the recorded phone calls on their answerphone (remote claims NEVER answer the phone it is only an answerphone) under the Privacy Act I was told they did not keep copies of them and my request was denied. Around six weeks later police came to my home and told me they were going to charge me with misuse of a telephone for making the calls, I was overwhelmed with grief and distraught at this gross injustice.   I spent 3 months being dragged through court only to have charges dropped at the last minute.  ACC could only do this by providing a record of the answerphone messages.

Six weeks after the charges were dropped I had police come to my home again (I am terrified of police at my home after years of visits, many of which were extremely traumatising – I have nightmares about police coming to my home now). They told me they were charging me with misuse of a telephone yet again, for phoning ACC really unwell and screaming for help. I was horrified, I have serious RECOGNISED BY A PSYCHIATRIST communication issues when triggered and I couldn’t communicate with police at the time.

I composed myself and went to Carterton police station to find out what was going on -why where they doing this to me again? I was met with insults, degradation and appalling discrimination by the two officers Sgt Q Hoera and Constable Alan French. For 10 mins I was treated like this, trying to defend myself and tell them they were wrong, mental health and ACC were liars I was begging for care – they were saying lots of people had tried to help me and I didn’t want it – that is not true.

I became so angry, I didn’t swear (go tourettes) like I can do (which is a recognised impairment related to my disability) I went back to my car, got out a chalk pen, went back to the police station and drew a swastika & words corrupt on the window in front of them. That was to represent the appalling violation of my human rights – human rights I had as a result of the United Nations recognising how the NAZIs rose to power and putting laws in place to stop this happening again.

I was violently assaulted by these two officers – for my NON-VIOLENT PROTEST. I was subjected to hours of insults and discrimination, when I tried to defend myself verbally they became more abusive and threatened I WOULD SEE HOW BAD POLICE COULD BE IF I KEPT IT UP.   Threats I take extremely seriously considering what happened to Louise Nicholas for many years. I have also realised police are using psychological abuse – which is referred to as Gaslighting – to intimidate and drive my suicidal behaviour even more – they want me to commit suicide.

I want to be sick and tears are rolling down my face as I write this, I will have to self-harm to cope once it is finished.

After I was released I went home to NO SUPPORT and couldn’t tell friends and family either I was so traumatised. I emailed Mike Sutton of Masterton police and told him what had happened, I made a formal complaint to him and the IPCA, I was ignored. A few days later I woke up very very unwell and highly suicidal, covered in bruises, I went to local hospital A & E. When I got there I was very distraught the nurse asked me who had hurt me, I didn’t want to tell her, she had been nice up to that point. Once I said it was police her entire demeanour changed, she left me alone – which was extremely inappropriate in the circumstances. She then put me in another cubicle, left me on my own so terrorised I was rocking backwards and forwards on the bed. By the time a doctor came to see me I was curled up in a ball in the corner of the room rocking, banging my back against the wall to try and calm myself.

The doctor was very nice, he seemed to understand where the nurse was horrible. They recorded the bruising on my hands, my arm and down left side of my leg. I left and went home to no support.

That medical account was given as evidence during the court case for graffiti and wilful trespass I was being charged under – that the violent assault by police was being decided under.  Q Hoera and Alan French told the judge I was pushed up against the wall, when I was thrown onto the ground, which is why I had bruises on side of my left leg.

Nobody told me until the case went to court almost 18 months since the protests and assault that it would be dealt with during court proceedings for my protesting – about police being used by ACC to charge me with misuse of a telephone for screaming for help I am entitled to and desperately needed. I had received the CCTV footage of me being processed by police after the assault – it proves what they had done to me – it was never used in court. Neither was extensive other evidence as to why I was protesting. My lawyer at the time was a public defender with no experience in human rights, bill of rights or what was happening to me.

The lawyer demanded I take out my statement about what was happening to me.

I was acquitted of several other charges for protesting (as I have been multiple times before) but was charged with graffiti for the chalk pen swastika. The judge also made a judgement about the assault saying the officers were justified and not believing anything about the threats or the extent of violence – which I know was illegal. I have been arrested many times, police in Wellington HAVE NEVER treated me so violently. There is a culture of police violence against women in Wairarapa that is not being addressed and is getting worse – I have spoken to several other people now who have witnessed or experienced unnecessary violence towards women here.

I was extremely upset about yet another gross violation of my rights and justice. I became even more unwell and a series of events related to my currently UNSAFE UNSTABLE living situation caused me even further distress (these included a terrifying situation with a mentally ill man on a bracelet in community who had just got out of prison and wanted to live with me because I desperately needed a flatmate.) Which is another story and violation of my human and disability rights that you are currently ignoring.

To cope with what police had done, as I was becoming even more unwell, if that is possible – I went to Masterton police station two weeks ago (30 Jan) and threw red paint over the large white ribbon banner in the foyer. I left, chalked a swastika on the building then headed for Lower Hutt court where I chalked a comment about the very old judge who made the decision and a swastika. I then went to Wellington police station and handed myself in to police there, as I trusted them. They were very nice but made me talk about the police assault which was very upsetting, it was obvious they were uncomfortable with what Wairarapa police had done and the entire situation I was in.

I was given a bail notice to appear on 6th February and conditions that I wasn’t to go within 1 metre of a Wairarapa police station and was to stay every night at my current address. On 1 February a police officer came to my home (which police know I am terrified of), he was very nice and respectful, he told me the 6 Feb date was done in error and could I sign a new Notice of Police Bail that required me to attend court on Monday 5 February. I was told failure to appear would result in my arrest and the notice advises I may be punished by imprisonment of up to 3 months if I did not attend.

I was nervous about the court, as I have spent the past 18 months being dragged through court, I have to get mentally prepared to go, I get dressed up. I am very poor at the moment because I havn’t had a flatmate for past 3 months and had to drive to Masterton with my petrol light flashing – and stressing about that.

When I got there I went inside to tell security to call me when my name came up as I was going to wait outside – and had my guitar so I could sing my songs, which helps me feel less stressed.   I have been escorted from court several times for singing and getting upset inside the court. Court staff know it is better for me to be outside waiting, I don’t feel so trapped (the need to be outside is related to the rape and heightened fight flight and freeze response/impairment I now have). While I was outside singing at around 9am – I was at court at 8.30am as required by the notice.

I also chalked “STOP police violence towards disabled women” on the court fence, I have chalked in this way many times before and not been arrested for it, I know it is within my rights to do this considering the extent of persecution and human rights violations I have been subjected to over several years.

NOTE: I have made a formal complaint to about Judge PJ Butler over his decision and I am attempting to appeal the conviction for graffiti – or more accurately the POLICE ASSAULT decision. But I have been very unwell and still cannot get a lawyer so trying to do it myself.

Police came along outside court and handed me a summons to appear in court on 5 March. Told me I wouldn’t be going to court today. I was very confused, I needed to see the judge to plead and ask for a psych assessment regarding my mental health and motivation behind the blood protest. The WHITE RIBBON sign I threw red poster pain on said to SPEAK OUT ABOUT VIOLENCE TOWARDS WOMEN. I had spoken out and been victimised even more. I know how long court takes, I wanted to make sure things were done as quickly as possible and getting the judge to order an assessment with Justin Barry-Walsh (who I trust and has assessed me for court proceedings previously) would speed things up. Also I had to get a lawyer.

Police left and I went into the court to see the judge. The security guard was very odd, he told me I wasn’t on the court list and I wasn’t allowed in the court, to see a judge or the registrar. I became upset and was then told I was trespassed. I know every person has a right under Magna Carta to see a judge if they need to. I was told there was only a registrar and no judge that day – even though the police officer who came to my home said I would be see a judge. I was prepared to see the registrar but they refused to let me. A woman who works at the court came out from a room looking frightened, she said there was only a registrar, she knew something bad was happening to me I am sure.

I left the court and headed back to my car not far away, as I was three police officers came around the corner, the two who had given me the summons and another. There was one shorter police officer and two very tall ones – it was very intimidating. I have NEVER resisted arrest police know that, I have had situations in Wellington where one officer was sent to arrest me. Once I am told I am under arrest I comply with everything police say, unless it violates my rights.

I was very distressed at being required to be in court or I could spend time in jail, but told I didn’t need to be there and to come back in a month. I went home with my light still flashing, I was very upset, mostly because the behaviour by police was so blatantly part of the GASLIGHTING form of psychological abuse vulnerable people can be subjected to by people in positions of power over them, either abusive partners or abusive organisations like police. This is a well documented and accepted form of abuse in power relationships. This is why we have a Human Rights Act and supposed to be protected from this form of violence by those in positions of power.

As Tuesday was a holiday on Wednesday I headed for Wellington early to see a judge or the registrar so I could have my court case moved to Wellington as it was obvious to me I was never going to get justice at the Masterton Court and the police station is behind the court house. I am terrified of Wairarapa police after years of discrimination and harm that you and other organisations suppose to protect me ignore.

I knew I had to see a judge but there were none available at Wellington District Court which I found strange, given it was a city court. I asked to see the registrar to explain what had happened and get the court proceedings moved. I talked to a Chinese man who was difficult to understand because of his accent, he was horrible, when I started to cry recounting what was going on he became insulting and patronising, when I told him it was police who were harming me he got worse. Because I was upset security were called to stand behind me and intimidate me – I was sodomised by the rapist from behind I get nervous when men stand behind me.

I then spoke to another person in the registrar’s office at Wellington District Court, all the woman said was for me to calm down – ie not cry and be completely distraught. She didn’t help me get to see the registrar to get court changed and arrange a psych report (as has been done before when I have gone through court for protesting about not receiving mental health care I am entitled to by law). Then she told security to remove me without helping me. A large woman with blond hair was by this stage standing behind her with a look of complete contempt on her face – a manager perhaps.

I left with security, but asked to see a lawyer on the 2nd floor, which I was allowed to do. This lawyer – who I will get the name of soon – listened to what was happening for just a short time, took my two Bail notices and summons off me, told me they were police documents and nothing to do with the court and I should leave. I was shocked, this wasn’t right advice and I knew that, I left with security. The lawyer told me if I wanted the court venue changed it was police I had to ask. I was scared to go to them but I had no choice.

I then went to Wellington police station as the lawyer told me and explained the situation. They told me I could not get court venue changed unless I changed my plea to guilty. But I hadn’t been able to plead because they wouldn’t let me in the court (even if I was going to plead not guilty I still hadn’t told the court that). The police officer was very nice, I was very very upset, he knew what was happening to me was wrong. He ended up agreeing it was a judge or registrar that would need to change the court venue – as I was now terrified of being in Masterton knowing what they were capable of. I kept saying I was sorry to him, for being so upset and that I had to complain about what police in Wairarapa were doing to me.

I left the police station and headed for the Community Law Centre where I sat waiting for 2 hours, crying mostly. I saw two women and told them my story, they said I really needed a lawyer and listed three on the form they gave me – I was distraught, begged them to find me a lawyer as when I ever tried I was rejected – they refused saying they weren’t allowed. I have since phoned those three lawyers one of them was not a criminal lawyer and couldn’t do it – the other two weren’t taking on new clients. I then remembered why I stopped going to Community Law Centre (I had been there about 5 times in past 14 years) because they always told me I needed a lawyer, referred me to people who were too busy or refused to help me because it wasn’t their area of expertise. This is a violation of my Magna Carta rights, and I know it.

Because I am now terrified of Wairarapa police and security at Masterton Court house I know I won’t be able to attend the summons on 5 March – I have no mental health support and impairments related to my disorder will stop me from going – I become phobic and unable to move when I am very unwell. I would then break the law and then police will come to my home and violently arrest me – I don’t want that, but I can’t go to Masterton court, I know I can’t. This is an impairment related to my disability and must be accommodated if possible under Human Rights and Bill of Rights laws.

When I spoke to Community Law lawyers they told me I was right in applying to the registrar in Wellington, they suggested the reason court staff were so insulting is they don’t like dealing with lay-people. If a lawyer was representing me they would have treated them with respect at the request to shift venues and most likely agreed, considering the proof of years of victimisation and police violence.

I desperately need a lawyer but there are none, I can’t appear in court in Masterton because of impairments related to my disorder, God please help me – what do I do? I have phoned dozens of lawyers, every rejection causes me to self-harm and is extremely harmful and degrading.

I contact politicians and senior police who supposed to take complaints of harm seriously – they refuse to do anything. I am a Civil Society Actor as defined by the United Nations it is illegal to use processes in a punitive way, which is exactly what is happening to me. I have contacted the United Nations, they told me you would help me and protect me, but you never have.


Yours sincerely

Budget Policy Statement 2018 – New Zealand



Yet another submission to government that I know will not be considered because it does not fit the neo-liberal agenda and demands immediate action on the terrorism of an entire sector of society after 30years of this illegal, immoral and irrational economic model.


It has been my contention for many years it is government PRIORITES that had become illegal/immoral by violating our most basic laws of Westminister Statute 1st – Common right be done to all rich as poor, and Magna Carta – no person shall be destroyed and every person shall have access to right and justice. They also violate Commonwealth Charter, NZ Bill of Rights, ACC legislation, disability, human & civil rights laws and multiple SIGNED United Nations declarations. Then of course there is the violation of Christianity -which our laws are based on and every sociology and psychology rule about causes of violence & social dysfunction.


Government kindness was

Never an OPTION


Cruelty was always



It is obvious people in power have started to realise those of us impoverished and persecuted by this economic terrorism aren’t going to take any more of it and our appalling statistics in child suicide, homelessness, addiction, violence, corporate greed, inequality etc is proof. I am sure there will be many others like me demanding to get gross injustices we have experienced addressed and compensated in a Court of New Zealand. I am sure this is why you are so focused on CHILD POVERTY and not dealing with the damage the past 30 yrs of adult poverty has caused – which our mental health stats reflect (and international drug companies profit from/along with justice system). You don’t want to deal with all those abuse victims who driven mad due to lack of services they entitled to – which included safe homes to live in and decent jobs if they older. You don’t want to deal with those of us demanding compensation for the torture and suffering we have been through – demanding justice.

You have mentioned child poverty 14 times in this one document, every one of those was an insult to the parents of these children who are obviously living in poverty as well. Of course elites like to pretend these parents are all losers, drink and drug and don’t care about their kids – which is NOT TRUE. Although many of the parents that are dysfunctional in this way are abuse victims themselves and never got the help they are entitled to and needed under ACC/disability laws/disability strategy/professional rehabilitation models to heal from their trauma and STOP the cycle. I know this for a fact because I live this grossly unjust nightmare – where media and government continuously say they don’t know what to do yet allow ACC to deny disabled mentally injured abuse victims our entitlements. I have spent the past 15 years since I was raped understanding the violence industry, law, human rights etc – I’ve been rotting on welfare, I have the time and I work very long hours and weeks without a break.


You refer to the Governments Budget Responsibility Rules, which I am sure National party have been violating for the past eight years, that makes me nervous, cause it indicates you are going to continue to give BUDGET constraints, as an excuse to deny disabled people safe stable homes to live in NOW! (People in Carterton who know how bad housing crisis is here was asking why aren’t govt bringing in the army, prefab homes like they had in Christchurch?)


Addressing housing and infrastructure crisis over years, while continuing with extreme levels of immigration is grossly irresponsible and illegal under Imperial Laws. Immigrants are driving New Zealanders out of their homes, businesses and jobs – you have made that legal and any sociologist will tell you it creates racism and violence. Humans have been fighting off invaders that take their most basic resources since BEGINNING OF HUMANS. Having this sort of environment will be triggering the basic instincts of all those affected – another reason people are becoming violent, cruel, addicted and committing suicide.


I’m not a social deficit and mental health infrastructure was purposely destroyed by Annette King and the Labour party, people thrown into the community without professional care & safe stable homes to live in. Everybody knows this, it is common knowledge, it is also common knowledge many mentally ill people caused significant harm and ended up in our justice system instead. I know for a fact as psych hospitals emptied, prisons filled and our judiciary were completely complicit with this gross miscarriage of justice against an entire sector of society. I have seen it myself watching court for just over an hour, 12 cases, four of them identified as mental health, four more I identified as mental health (ie violence as a result of Complex PTSD and severe stress) and four more deserved to be there.


I find it extremely threatening that government would want to invest more in police, when they are the ones who currently leading the way in persecution of mentally injured abuse victims and mentally ill. Why would you need more investment in police if you are going to help poorest people get safe stable homes and jobs? Or are you in complete denial at the inhuman environment people are being forced to live in – a living and social environment that satisfies Maslows Heirachy of Needs model (a model I satisfy on no levels – which is why I have been unable to recover from the sexual abuse and neglect trauma) which is why I am highly suicidal, self-harm, bulimic, attachment disorder, tick, have Complex PTSD and live rotting on welfare when I am an intelligent person treated like human sewage.


I have seen a new department start about evidence based policing, you managed to get something like this going in the first 100 days but you can’t address the 1000s of us who make complaints about police that are ignored. I have written to several Ministers telling them about ongoing police intimidation and violence – my own MP Kieran McNaulty emailed me recently and told me there was nothing he would or could do about it. Many of my activist friends in area of ABUSE have heard the same thing from those in the government they were relying on for justice and compensation. (NOTE: compensation that would see them at the same economic level of their peers, which they were unable to realise due to impacts of their abuse and criminal neglect.)




The admission in such an important and formal document that some New Zealanders have not received the benefits of economic growth using neo-liberal theories is an admission previous govts have violated the Westminister Statute 1st and Magna Carta. I am sure many in the legal profession would be aware that when a poor peasant has these rights to protection and safety illegally removed by rich powerful people THEY NO LONGER HAVE TO FOLLOW ANY LAW – the contract between rich and poor that created our justice system has been violated. Our ancestors were quite aware of human behaviour and knew allowing rich unbridled power over poor only ever resulted in suffering and violence, hence the increase in violence in our society, people with nothing to lose. Who now get more of their basic needs met in jail than in the community – although I do think this was designed like this purposely to support a corrupted cruel immoral and criminal penal system & create jobs (where many had been driven out of the country to China and poorer countries with few human rights).


It terrifies me with the focus on FAMILIES as it purposely limits any support for some of the most terrorised and persecuted members of society after 30yrs of neo-liberal terrorist policies, disabled people without children or whose children have left home. (NOTE, neo-liberal policies are terrorist acts as I have read the Terrorism Suppression Act and you are not allowed to impoverish large sectors of society for a belief system.)


Government acceptance and happiness with a 4% unemployment rate is grossly unjust neo-liberalism at its worst. In one breath you are saying you want to increase trade and employment, while in the next you are saying you’re happy with 4% unemployment. It is obvious if free trade was going to FIX unemployment in New Zealand it would have happened after the Chinese FTA. I find it interesting the number of unemployed is about the same number as disabled people and it is true from my experience, those who can’t get work most often have disabilities.


In recent OPINIONATED news from NZ Initiative (ie Business Round Table terrorists) the appalling statistics of people with injuries/illness/disabilities who now don’t work compared to pre-neoliberalism was offset by comment by AAAP members, a group of social activists. There was no discussion with disability advocacy groups, Workbridge or WINZ employment consultants as to the facts of what happening.   NZ Initiative implied these disabled people worked through their impairments but now they are too lazy too. I have attended many meetings by many different organisations and the fact is employers refuse to employ disabled people due to cost and OSH requirements.


It makes me very sad to think the massive increase in productivity in New Zealand was mostly due to disabled people being dumped from the workforce. I have never met a disabled person that isn’t desperate to work – at something they are capable of doing without suffering and being bored into suicide (like they do in China). I have studied health disability and rehabilitation at Massey University, the book Person to Person outlined the plight of disabled people over decades – we are the ones last to be employed and first to be fired.


Any employer will hire something who can work faster than another – that is why orchardists prefer to hire healthy strong Fijians on their orchards rather than less able New Zealand workers. With the mass immigration government are continuing (at their peril) it is quite obvious disabled people will continue to be denied work, safe stable homes and a dignified standard of living.


The obsession with education in neo-liberal countries has got to stop, we cannot all be what we want and trying to perpetrate that illusion is one of the reasons we have such a high rate of youth suicide. Someone has to clean toilets and make 100s latte’s every day for years. If we were all lifted out of poverty by education then who would do this type of work.


That the government are going to stop bringing in low skilled workers and continue to import highly skilled wealthy people is a NEO-LIBERAL ABOMINATION. So what you are saying are New Zealanders, especially our young are going to be doing the menial, low paid, low skilled, boring work, while foreigners are going to get the good, interesting, well paid jobs. This appalling aspect of neo-liberalism HAS destroyed the entire fabric of our society and violated so many cultural and criminal laws it still astounds me it is allowed to continue. Of course I am resentful when a foreigner moves to Carterton with a good job I could have done if given the opportunity – if my kids had been given the opportunity. Of course I am prone to Xenophobia – ie hating all immigrants and seeing them as a threat to my survival – because they are – its not their fault of course, its our corrupt, cruel and incompetent governments fault. Same people who hold themselves up as knights and dames with high moral fibre. Watching the hypocrisy and these gross injustices every day is the main reason I want to die every day as well – as I have no hope while this is not acknowledged and rectified IMMEDIATELY – not in four years!


Treasury are corrupt – I know that for a fact and their forecasts that migration will drop from 72,400 to a long-run average of 15,000 by 2021 is absolutely ridiculous and not based on any FACT whatsoever. The world’s population is growing at an alarming rate, millions of people displaced by war, lack of water/resources etc requires those places like New Zealand that can sustain humans are going to fill up faster. Also many people are trying to escape the violence of other neo-liberal controlled countries more progressed than ours, like USA – Americans are high on immigration list. Sadly they are bringing with them their vindictive, self-righteous and cruel cultural beliefs about advancing rich, profiting from everything possible, including those they put in jail – the American prison system is the most corrupt, cruel and grossly unjust in the world today according to multiple documentaries coming out about it.


I did not see one mention of the appalling state of justice system for disabled/mentally ill and poor people who are now having their Magna Carta rights violated – as I am – I have been unable to get a lawyer to protect me from civil rights violations, ACC illegally withholding my entitlements and harm by police etc FOR YEARS. Apparently civil legal aid lawyers are almost impossible to find, human rights is considered civil law, which I find extremely disturbing considering the level of violence and suffering people like me are subjected to. Only those in the legal system would understand just how bad it is – because our bias media mostly refuse to address or report on it. While Justice Winkleman makes speeches about how poor citizens up against powerful government institutions are having their rights to justice violated. She writes about it and speaks about it – but this gross miscarriage of justice goes on unchecked. I have written to her several times – I am not even given the respect of a reply and the Secretary for Justice just trivialises or discredits anything I say about gross violations of law.


When considering what priorities the government should have over the next term I would suggest beginning at those points where people’s rights are being violated are the most important. I know for a fact disabled people must have access to social housing in a society like New Zealand. All resources currently devoted to infrastructure or commercial construction should be moved to urban development IMMEDIATELY. (Personally I think a percentage of private construction resources should be diverted as well.) If the government did this then the immigration issue would not be as socially damaging as it is now. It is people losing resources to rich foreigners that is causing the hatred and racism. No person should be allowed in this country unless they have somewhere to live AND NO NEW ZEALANDER SHOULD BE KICKED OUT OF THEIR HOME by an immigrant.


Imagine the social repair to our society that would happen if we were allowed to help each other. With all disabled people in state provided housing (that could be with state loans) it would free up property for others who need it, it would bring down rental costs dramatically (which I know rich people, neo-liberals and National party right DO NOT WANT). It would take the profit out of property and stabilise the accommodation market. Of course it would cause a huge financial crash which would have to be managed by banking regulation – but then it is banking deregulation behind so much suffering, waste, greed and pollution of our entire planet. Money that was created from thin air in the form of a loan to someone who did not work for any of it. (This is why ANZ bank now funds so much elitist sport, cause they have most of the money – it overwhelmes me to think how much money banks take out of our economy in the form of interest – how much suffering they create.)


For 30 years taxes to the rich have been reduced while taxes to the poor continually increase. When the government said they weren’t going to reinstate higher taxes to the rich I was horrified.   They have all the money, they have taken all the money, they are the ones using to harm people as well, they gloat about their wealth everywhere in our media, they are grossly wasteful while others are forced to be frugal to the point they can’t participate in society or fulfil cultural beliefs (eg can’t go home for Xmas, can’t go on holiday cause can’t afford it).


Every time you go on about child poverty and delivering more money to families with children I cry. Every impoverished and disabled parent is humiliated and denigrated with this patronising insulting elitist ‘propaganda’ – it is the parents who are poor, not the children. The propaganda about poor people is rife and based on no scientific understanding of what causes poverty and family violence. New Zealand has extreme rates of family violence in New Zealand because of the radical application of neo-liberal theories – academics have spoken about NZ going from one of the most protected and controlled countries in the world to THE MOST unprotected and free economies. A fact that saw 100,000s families broken forever as people were forced to move to Australia and other countries to find work – while the rich got richer and the disabled poor who couldn’t leave were persecuted (yes I have a dictionary and know what the word means and it is appropriate to use).


When I was a disabled single mum with children, after being hurt in a violent sexual crime, I was much better off than a disabled single woman with nowhere safe and stable to live, forced to go flatting with people who exploited, victimised and terrorised me (as well as attempting suicide and them and me getting no help). As my children came of the age to leave home it was horrendous for me and them – I had lost my own home after I was raped and couldn’t return to work or my law studies – as ACC refused to provide entitlements.


Knowing I am a destitute disabled woman living on welfare in this hell hole of a country, is why I continuously battle suicide, as I have absolutely no hope for the future. The government even put out advertising saying if people didn’t save for their retirement they wouldn’t have enough food to eat – did anybody think they were showing these advertisements to disabled people who had no way of saving for the future – they don’t get enough to live with dignity now.


Also families being better off by $66 a week – is completely insignificant in the scheme of raises in rent and other costs that can’t be avoided, including the extreme cost of food – $5.50 for 500g butter, $25/kilo for fish – cause we have to compete with rest of world & what they will pay. Then of course there are the costs we now face of education, health and justice – all introduced by neo-liberals to cut taxes to the rich and impoverish the poor.


I know about disability, I know about laws related to disabled people and their rights, I have read the disability strategy I know for a fact disabled people’s rights to participate in society are not upheld, neither are their rights to housing and WORK. Please refer to my website SOLUTIONS page about what should be happening in the area of rehabilitation for mentally injured abuse victims. www.jrmurphypoet.com


Please refer to my regional rehabilitation centres idea and regional mental health facilities – we must heal those who have been damaged by the past 30years of neo-liberal terrorism because WE ARE NOT going to be ignored. Germany recognised their human rights violations and what they had done to Disabled, gypsies and Jews, they gave compensation – what has happened in New Zealand is very similar (except many were driven to suicide & profited from in jails) and those who been harmed will demand this injustice is addressed and rectified – I demand it.


Government should have NO DEBT WHATSOEVER they should be in credit and loaning it others. The idea that any group could run up debt by cutting taxes to the rich then forcing poor top pay massive amounts of interest to foreign banks is extremely corrupt, incompetent, negligent and immoral. No council should have private debt either, user pays is part of neo-liberalism and DOES NOT WORK. Places like Masterton spent $millions of rates on doing up sports grounds, parks, business centres etc – while illegally not doing anything about things like sewerage infrastructure (eg Masterton mayor Bob Francis).


HOME OWNERSHIP IS A CULTURAL RIGHT that is currently being violated. This began during Gov Grey era 1900s, as I have done history research on Grey and Small Farms Settlement at Greytown. Grey knew then what landlords were capable of, after seeing what had happened to tenant farmers in Ireland during potato famin. He wanted peasants to have opportunity to own/work land. Personally I prefer the Maori model of land ownership, as caretaker of land and I do not believe any corporation of foreigner should EVER own land in this country. Making peasants tenants is a neo-liberal terrorist ideology that, like I said, is a violation of our cultural rights. The current level of foreign takeover of our resources HAS GOT TO STOP – and the lies that this is imperative for New Zealand to survive HAS GOT TO STOP AS WELL.


I disagree with the priorities in the 100 day plan, as a mentally injured/ill suicidal abuse victim, rotting on welfare in unsafe unstable private housing with no health care and having my human and civil rights violated NOTHING in that package has helped me IN ANY WAY.


The idea of yet another inquiry into mental health, when we all know what the problems are is insulting to my intelligence and 15 years of fighting for the treatment care rehabilitation and justice I am entitled to under the law – both under National and Labour governments. We don’t need to restart the Mental Health Commission we need to provide professional care using professional health and rehabilitation models – we need to follow the law and science, not the experimental and harmful system we currently have.


We do need an inquiry into corruption by drug companies in the area of mental health and the forced drugging of mentally injured abuse victims (who being refused professional care) and mentally ill. The drugging of people terrorised by poverty, housing and food insecurity. I know Mark Unsworth is an ex-drug company executive and I believe was sent here and set up his PR business in 1993 just to ensure drug companies made profit from those the government was about to impoverish and terrorise PURPOSELY.


I’m sorry I can’t go on, I have become really unwell and can’t stop crying, the injustices me and so many other neglected disabled mentally injured abuse victims are being subjected to by government and our communities overwhelms me.


I am unable to proof read what I have written either, so I hope it is OK, please ignore spelling and grammar mistakes. I am sure I have not covered everything I want to say but I do always hope I will one day get a voice with those who have power in government to change the gross injustice happening to me and many other women children and men.


Kia kaha and Aroha to us all

Power Junkies


What becomes of my broken heart
The rage and fear you cruelly start
You proved that swastika justified
Stood up in court and you lied

The bruises on my legs and arm
For weeks remind me of your harm
All I asked for was a sorry
Promise peace so I don’t worry

The flashbacks haunt me of that day
They make things worse, won’t go away
You pledge white ribbon you do follow
You swear an oath to Queen and bible

Pakeha, Maori, Africaan
The race of men who caused me harm
I’m a child of this earth these stars
You left me with more ugly scars

Junkies rule the marginalised
The poor, oppressed, the most despised
Keep up their bullying over years and years
Follow cruel elites, profit from tears

And one more thing you oughta know about me


Dedicated to Judge P J Butler, Sgt Q Hoera and Const Allan French, also 2 security guards at high court who assaulted me.

Got convicted of GRAFFITI today – Listen to what happened

What a day after 18 months of waiting apparently I’m not guilty of Wilful Trespass but am guilty of Graffiti – but I won’t be punished or sentenced unless I commit another crime – WHICH I DEFINITELY WILL BE.

So got to Lower Hutt court – which is 1 hour drive from home (please note: I can’t find a flatmate so rent is $260 & invalids benefit is $410) petrol cost $20.  If I wanted to get the decision in Masterton I would have had to wait until March 2018 before the revolting corrupt fascist elitist VERY OLD judge was here again and I would have killed myself having to wait that long.

I was nervous of course, waiting outside court was a young man sitting on the low walls around the front area, with gardens full of cigarette butts.  He offered me a cigarette a couple of times to deal with the stress – so I did.  Big sign on the Lower Hutt court house said NO SMOKING – should have got a photo.

We talked about why I was there, he was 100% behind what I was doing and felt the same way about the government, inequality, justice, etc.  Was nervous and needed to do something.

I went and did some chalking in front of the court house that said:

NZ law No 1

Westminster Statute the 1st

  • common right be done to all rich as poor

NZ law No 2

Magna Carta

No-one shall be destroyed and everyone shall have access to right and justice



We’re not shares to be traded

We’re not pawns in a game

We’re not doing OK

And we’re not the ones to blame


Then a comment about how if wealthy govt violate Laws 1 & 2 then poor people don’t have to abide by any laws wealthy govt makes.


While I was doing it a young officer came along and started asking me questions, telling me I had been in trouble before for chalking and that I shouldn’t be doing it.  I told him it was all legal and I wasn’t going to stop, that I knew my rights, it was chalk.  He asked me what it was all about – my response was – can’t you read.  He kept annoying me and I got angry, I don’t have to answer his questions, told him politely several times to leave me alone, he didn’t so I started swearing at him.   Got very heated and he threatened me with being arrested and put in prison – I think the prison threat was pretty funny.  Came very close to being arrested BEFORE COURT.

Thankfully not far from us was the man I had just been talking to and a Dominion Post journalist.  So I started raising my voice so they knew what was going on – there was no way I wanted to get arrested BEFORE COURT and NO WAY I was backing down when he was the one annoying me.  The officer asked me why I was being loud, so I told him, to make sure that journalist over there hears what happens to disabled activists like me for writing statements and poetry about justice on the street (well actually it was on court property technically).  Photos are on my facebook page /jrmurphypoetmusician

I finished my chalking while police officer phoned his boss and talked for quite a long time before he came back – with a vastly different attitude – I was just finishing.  He asked me a really cool question about why I had said poor people dont have to follow the law if their Westminister & Magna Carta rights had been violated.  Told him the story about 1200s when they were feuding and some people decided the fighting needed to stop, so they decided on a set of rules (LAWS) But there was NO WAY the peasants would agree to the rules if the rich didn’t have to – or were treated better.

Magna Carta also guaranteed above all else that govt wouldn’t destroy you and everybody would have access to right and justice.  Which currently doesn’t happen and is why we have so much violence – previous intelligent humans knew some pretty cool and interesting things about human behaviour under persecution – go figure.  I think man has become more stupid as we have evolved – or maybe its just those who lead us – groan.

Police officer also said he didn’t agree with what was happening to mentally ill people in the system.  I said how good that was to hear and all peaceful revolutions succeeded when police refused to take up arms against CITIZENS.  (Isn’t it a shame we don’t have this sort of news or discussion on mainstream media?)

While I was chalking my poem a young man came past on a skateboard – loved what I was doing.  Said he was working homeless, things weren’t good, police had offered to lock him up in the cells for few nights if he needed somewhere to stay – they weren’t kidding, they actually were trying to help him.  He had mental health issues as well.

I went back to sit down and another man arrived, he had a cool music box with him in a bag, big Maori/Samoan man.  We started talking and I discovered he had Complex PTSD like me, he was up on charges of assaulting a police officer, resisting arrest etc.  He was really worried (was expecting bracelet or prison for 3 mths) – the things he was describing about his behaviour were TYPICAL PTSD symptoms.

It was 9am, he said he didn’t have to be there until 2.30pm – I said he should keep busy, perhaps go down the river or to some big trees, that might help – it helped me in the past.  He said if he left he didn’t think he would return, so i agreed with him about staying.  He revealed to me – by the sounds of it all the talk about abused CYFS kids getting an inquiry had been triggering memories of his own abuse.

He said people told him he shouldn’t bottle it up, but he couldn’t let it out either cause he couldn’t control it and someone would get hurt – oh boy do I know how that feels – probably not as violently as him but I know the feeling very well.  I assured him he was right about not wanting to talk about what happened if he was getting violent with it – I told him how I was protesting about professional care for abuse victims like him and me, and health care that would help us through dealing with really bad trauma.  it took only a few minutes and we were talking like long lost friends – that happens a lot with me when I come across people with Complex PTSD.  Cause I have studied it for so many years I understand it very well and understand people who have it – people who don’t have it DO NOT UNDERSTAND.

We talked about not letting people get to you, when some toxic triggering shit came towards you how to pretend in your minds eye you are dodging it, it flies right past and ends up in a basket behind you.  Especially useful for inconsiderate, degrading or abusive families you supposed to get help from.  He heard me swearing at officer as well & understood.  Officer came back past and I apologised for swearing at him – I never used to swear – but then I wasn’t a terrorised persecuted disabled abuse victim being denied health care, a job, a safe home and justice back then.

I reassured him everything would be OK now we had a Labour government & Kelvin Davis was in the media recently saying how he was going to help people who ended up in prison system – especially those with mental health issues.  I told him to make sure he reiterated his mental injury from his violent childhood in CYFS care from 5 yrs old.

He told me about a time when CYF worker had dogs lead around his neck, the lead was slipped under a closed door and the man was pulling it tight so J…. couldn’t breath.  Another child was yelling  at the man he was going blue but he said something abusive and ignored it.  J….. passed out and remembered coming too being dragged along the corridor.  He said a nice social worker at the CYFS home tried to stop and expose the violent abuse but was sacked instead.

(Just so people know, even though he said he didn’t want to talk about it, when you meet someone who understands sometimes a particuarly bad unresolved trauma will come up and next minute you are telling a complete stranger.)  Forcing this process when the person is not in a safe emotional environment – IS NOT GOOD, IS IN FACT DANGEROUS AND LIFE-THREATENING TO THE PERSON.  Getting drunk often brings it out in the worst way – avoiding alcohol helps but its not DEALING WITH it.

Was so cool to meet him and hopefully help him through his day/life – he didn’t have anybody supporting him either.  Made sure he knew me and lots of other people felt exactly like him and had same problems.  I’ve tried to start Stress Disorder Support Groups before but govt wouldn’t let me – I don’t reakon they want all disabled people like us together because we would validate the symptoms of our EXTREMELY DEBILITATING AND SOMETIMES TERRIFYING DISORDER and work out our government, police and justice system were purposely persecuting mentally injured and ill disabled people.

A Dominion Post journalist came along, he was there for my case, but I didn’t want to talk to him – told him I didn’t like journalists so he backed off – which was cool.  He talked to my lawyer by text to find out what was happening. Didn’t take any photos of my chalking or poetry of course.

Several random people took photos and video of my chalking – which is awesome – more uploads and shares the better – more empowered people will be.

Next person I met was a Maori guy who was representing himself in court, had done it a few times before – he hated the justice system, oppressors of the poor and Maori – he was really cool too and admired what I was doing.  Again I was talking to someone like I had known him for years after 5 mins.  He would have heard me going APESHIT at the judge when I was convicted – told him I was going to sing and I did.

Went into court and watched previous case – AGAIN a mental health case involving violence and a man with anxiety and depression (ie suicidal).  How many cases of mentally ill disabled people are in our courts at the moment?????  It is common knowledge two thirds of people in jail are disabled with mental health issues – same people National govt took away right to vote from – now why do you think that was?????

Check out rest of my page and ask yourself WHY we hearing nothing from our two disability commissioners, the Human Rights Commission, Law Commission, Ombudsman, Auditor-General, Mental Health Foundation, etc  They not saying anything because a radicalised terrorist aspect of neo-liberalism is the requirement people who are driven to violence by abuse, prolonged neglect and severe stress are completely discredited, denigrated & blamed for their disorder – not the people who abused them or govt/society that neglected them.

I didn’t sleep last night and I have just become very very tired RIGHT NOW – will finish off tomorrow.



I DEMAND Donna Howard NZ POLICE deal with police assault – TODAY – #16DAYSOFACTION2017

I will take the focus off NZ police violence against me and others during my current protests if Insp Donna Howard DEALS WITH what happened, I get justice & to meet with the two officers.


The officer who assaulted me gets counselling, a written warning and a record of it on his file.

The officer who threatened me with future increased  violence, gets a written warning and has it recorded on his file.

They have to meet with me in a safe place so I can tell them what they did to me and how it affected my life.

I demand an apology and assurance there will be no future violence towards me if I have any future dealings with police in my Civil Society activism work.

I wish I could slap their faces for what they did – BUT I DON’T HIT MEN AS A RULE!

A sczophrenic man once told me DON’T TRUST VIOLENCE – and I don’t – shame the police and New Zealand government don’t hold the same high standards – like those ones in the bible they swear an oath to as an agent of The Queen.

I will put my focus about violence towards women back on the shoulders of New Zealands leaders – exactly where it belongs.

I have a traumatic stress disorder that is compounding if I DON’T or can’t deal with stressful situations in my life it makes my  mental health much worse.  Getting an apology and assurance of no future violence from those two officers IS DEALING WITH IT – while it remains un-dealt with it causes me significant stress and harm – that fuels my suicidality, self-harm, bulimia etc.

Please make it stop – that’s all I’m asking, please take at least one serious stress and worry out of my life.  Please make me stop thinking every time I hear a car in my street it is police coming to get me.  Please stop me from being too scared to protest about abusive mental health services, poverty and injustice.

As a woman I am deeply disappointed in the conduct of Insp Donna Howard, IPCA and New Zealand’s most senior police officers who have allowed this to continue – while promoting White Ribbon propaganda.  It breaks my heart every time I see a piece of marketing about violence towards women & then it makes me really really angry!

Then I can stuff down all the fear I feel and go out in the community and tie a whole lot of white ribbons outside the police station, or chalk a fence or the footpath, or put up a sign I have painted, or put a poem on youtube……

NZ Initiative welfare report & Shane Jones reveal failure of Neo-liberalism

Just sent the following report to Shane Jones and others, it covers some of the ignorant garbage he is vomiting all over us via media at the moment.

NZ Initiative welfare report reveals failure of neo-liberalism


Kiwis are richer – and more are on disability benefits than ever before due to the failed neo-liberal experiment of the past 30 years. It has created gross inequality and caused significant harm to disabled and poor citizens, their families and friends.


With double the income-per-person than what was in 1970, a minimum wage up 50 per cent (inflation adjusted) and better medical care for working and wealthy people who can afford it. Including increasing child mortality for poor due to housing overcrowding, terrorised stressed people driven to violence drugs suicide, impoverished by years of austerity following illegal cruel and savage cuts to welfare. Cuts to welfare following deregulation and driving of 100,000s manufacturing jobs to China where the Chinese government gladly provided the infrastructure and man power to create wealth for their own people and country.   You’d think New Zealand would be in its heyday.


But the facts are ‘tragically different’ argued the highly paid researchers of Business Round Table, now known as NZ Initiative. Part of a global group of right-wing think tanks and business membership organisations with an office in Wellington. Think tanks are an essential part of the global marketing programme that has seen the spread of socially damaging neo-liberal policies to most OECD countries – even though it was a never tested economic idea. It has also caused catastrophic poverty, violence, social dysfunction, addiction and suicide in rich countries and slavery, violence, unnecessary suffering and suicide in poorest countries as well.


Instead, in 2012 the proportion of Kiwis of working age on a sickness or invalids benefit was six times greater than in 1970. This is when NZ was one of the most socialist countries on the planet with an extensive welfare system that wasn’t needed as much because even disabled people were given opportunity to work and one wage could support an average 5 person family. Large numbers of workers employed by the government/councils would have been in that disabled category – with the introduction of excessive private contracting where productivity is the focus, disabled people who cannot work at 100% capacity of a healthy adult are rejected as inefficient and not cost effective.


To increase profits and productivity many jobs were made casual, part-time and seasonal. This is how New Zealand has tried to compete with rest of the world on efficient use of Labour – irrelevant of these vulnerable workers impoverishment when business people did not want them. Now they are even refused safe stable homes or be allowed to stay in their own communities – many families have been driven apart by desperate unemployed members moving to other regions, Australia and beyond.


Now 10% of the working-age population are on a main welfare benefit, compared with 2% in 1970 and around 500,000 people received some kind of income support from MSD this year. This is what neo-liberalism creates, business owners only using healthiest members of the workforce and letting the government take care of the rest. Strangely NZ Initiative interpreted the information as being a failure of the welfare state, rather than a success. What they are talking about is the failure of government to accept these rejected people and offer them productive work within the community within their capabilities and unique talents. There are multiple disability, human rights and welfare laws that say this is what should happen, sadly for 80% of disabled people it does not – and particularly mentally injured and ill people. ACC’s almost sole focus is rehabilitation – according to their accountability documents and the legislation. Hopefully this new government will finally address this gross miscarriage of justice and unnecessary suffering of most vulnerable while richest flourish and employ people to disseminate misinformation and bigoted opinion through well financed think tanks.


Report author Dr Bryce Wilkinson said New Zealand has got a serious and entrenched problem of disadvantage coming through the welfare system. When this has nothing to do with welfare and everything to do with lack of professional health care, increasing impoverishment and terrorising of poorest/disabled by neo-liberal policies, plus the lack of safe stable housing. Intergenerational benefit dependence is a consequence of Low Wage economy requirement that there is high unemployment to keep down wages over past 30 yrs ago. It doesn’t account for the fact many people have to apply over and over again for jobs and will often be denied the job in favour of a more experienced foreigner. People with looks, mannerisms that aren’t ‘mainstream’ are rejected from this system as well. Although there has been a little talk of tapping into creativity of New Zealanders – the past 9 years have been a stifling of the artists.


The cycle of neo-liberalism keeping generations of families impoverished, traumatised and marginalised is high – this would never have happened in the 1970s – although there were other mechanisms of racism etc that did their damage to certain cultural groups of people back then. The report found nearly three quarters of all beneficiaries aged under 25 had a parent on a benefit while they were a child. More proof of the cruel and extensive loss of jobs after deregulation neo-liberalism took over our government in 1984 (the relevance to George Orwell’s book 1984 is definitely unnerving at times). These young people have seen their parents/families terrorised by poverty and injustice since they were born – many of them ending up as income/jobs for the justice system. A review of types of jobs done in 1970s compared to 2012 will show the move away from manufacturing work into law, police, justice, security. In fact numerous jobs dealing with the fallout from impoverishing 100,000s New Zealanders – this is currently a terrorist act under the Terrorism Suppression Act, sadly the current GCSB head Rebecca Kitteridge refuses to investigate this crime.


This marginalised cultural group of disabled people have also suffered the brunt of extremist neo-liberal policies of cutting and privatising mental health services (even when empirical evidence shows NGOs in mental health did not work anywhere they operated because NGOs lied about the services they provided and excluded those most in need of care). NGOs also ordered to operate within EXTREME funding constraints – as required under austerity measures wealthy neo-liberals insist on.


My personal expertise is 15 years of study in traumatic stress disorders as a result of sexual and physical abuse. There are huge numbers of mentally injured abuse victims who have not received the extensive professional treatment care rehabilitation and justice they are entitled to under multiple New Zealand laws. They have been severely disadvantaged, neglected, misunderstood, marginalised and discriminated against, which has made everything much worse. I would suggest 10% of New Zealand population would be an approximately number of people who have not healed from trauma, or had so much trauma in their lives they have been permanently terrorised. Same number Mr Wilkinson refers to which I am sure with a little investigation would be born out as linked.


The disproportionate withdrawal of money from the poorest members of society – people purposely impoverished under neo-liberal measures and corresponding economic prosperity of richest members of society is actually a gross violation of our most basic laws. NZ’s first legal statute is Westminister Statute the 1st – common right be done to all rich as poor.


Neo-liberalism has also created gross violations of the Magna Carta which says governments are not allowed to destroy people and every person must have access to right and justice. Violations of both these laws by our government therefore must result in poor people not being required to follow any laws of New Zealand. The fight between rich and powerful and poor and powerless is age old, governments, democracies and laws were set up to bridle power and protect those they sought to exploit and harm. That is currently failing to happen in New Zealand and more and more people every day are coming to this realisation and becoming enraged at the rhetoric, deceit and bigotry we hearing through our media from organisations like Business Round Table/NZ Initiative – whose leaders are all captains of industry, money and law (check out their website).


Government cannot take responsibility for the plight of disabled New Zealanders because neo-liberals have under-funded health, welfare and justice to criminal levels – in order to use taxes to advance wealthy business leaders, pay horrendous govt debt and give rich people tax cuts, they apparently deserve. The predicament faced by people on welfare is one of being continually marginalised and terrorised by ignorant people who want them to have even less – as well as cope with whatever their disability throws at them. They are repeatedly swept up in the constant hatred towards ‘lazy’ young New Zealanders and others who don’t want to work. I have never met a person who doesn’t want a decent job, within their capabilities, that pays enough to live – EVER. I have only met disabled people – young and old who suffering and struggling to survive. My own children have worked since they were 12 years old, as a disabled parent they had to. They are now 22 and 23 and successful people in decent jobs, they have now both paid off their student loans and neither of them used those skills they were forced to pay for.


WE ALREADY KNOW WHAT WORKS – the idea we need more research and study is yet another neo-liberal idea, we already have all the information we could ever need about what works in creating a decent society. We have all the knowledge and the laws to back it up – we just don’t do it. Other countries know what to do, governments have spent $millions since introduction of neo-liberalism trying to combat social problems it created. New Zealand knew what to do, that is why our country was relatively peaceful in the 1970s. ACC is one of the most progressive forms of socialism in the world, now an agency used to terrorise people who have long term disabilities due to accident. Along with illegally withholding extensive professional treatment and rehabilitation to mentally injured abuse victims, who large percentage of those on welfare. Under ACC law these sensitive claimants also entitled to safe housing – which they currently don’t get – corrupted ACC officials save the money to spend on the stock market and promote dam projects in the Hawkes Bay – or banks.


Social investment is an incredibly offensive degrading elitist term used to herd all those people terrorised by poverty, austerity in health/welfare/justice and public neglect into a group in order to exploit them.


The interpretation of Peter’s story is incredible ignorant and shows no research was done with any disability organisation in New Zealand, Workbridge and disability reports would not have been reviewed either. This plainly sets out the issues with disabled people getting work – especially if their disability is intermittent. I have attended multiple disability forums where this topic is discussed, as the situation gets worse and worse as more healthy immigrants come to New Zealand. People are so desperate to work, many commit suicide after years of impoverishment and marginalisation by government and community.


My family have businesses I was told by my brother-in-law he doesn’t hire disable people because of OSH requirements and he just can’t carry them in ‘this day and age’.


Peter is the responsibility of ACC, he should have an Occupational Therapist working with him to get back to meaningful work? He should be a client of Workbridge, ACC has an extensive programme to return people to best possible health – they don’t apply it to everybody of course, eventually they dump you (that was the neo-liberal changes they called GETTING RID OF THE TAIL or LOW HANGING FRUIT). Why is Peter discussing this with an untrained employment consultant?


ACC has proper work assessments that Peter has described – I would suggest someone make a complaint to the ACC minister this government agency are not doing what they are required to by law. Why havn’t the media who covered this story followed this up? Given the worst neo-liberal immigrant in history of our country currently runs ACC may have something to do with it – Paula Rebstock. The woman who concurrently denied abused children ACC care they entitled to and was paid $2,000 a day to change the name of CYFS who had been found to be abusing children in their care.   I have asked repeatedly for a police investigation into ACCs treatment of sensitive claimants to no avail. Hopefully a new government will ensure one goes ahead.


I will be contacting Carmel Sepuloni with my response to this Business Round Table uneducated uninformed rhetoric and sending a copy to all major news papers and bloggers. I will be sending a copy of this response to Mr Wilkinson and posting it on my website www.jrmurphypoet.com


This ignorance and bigotry has got to stop, our news media is making public unsubstantiated opinions not based on fact – this is to get CLICKBAIT and people upset. It fuels fascism in people who have been told to hate and blame the poor – when it is quite obvious wealthy elites and leaders who fund right-wing think tanks introduced neo-liberalism to this country are to blame for the inhuman situation many disabled people now find themselves in. This fuels suicide and hatred in those who being terrorised, their bosses/landlords/family members who believe in what Business Round Table say subsequently degrade & insult you at every opportunity.


We don’t need studies to know what to do – we should be doing what the law and professional health models tell us to do. I have a friend who is an Occupational therapist I know how grossly underfunded the health system is. I have studied Occupational Therapy and the extensive rehabilitation – particularly Social Rehabilitation ALL New Zealanders are entitled to under ACC.


The ONLY solution to this issue of valuing disabled people is for regional rehabilitation centres to be set up and regional mental health facilities (which could work in with them in some way). Places where disabled people can go and work on a multitude of different projects from supported house building, food growing, jump in a van with a team going out to do seasonal work. These places must be run professionally with an Occupational Therapy focus, by the government, private enterprise and charities ARE NOT trustworthy to do this. This focus is the same set out in multiple constitutional documents and the Commonwealth Charter – why we don’t do this is beyond my comprehension. Why we have such disregard for our less fortunate neighbour, young and old, disgusts me as a decent human being and kind New Zealander.


My website has a solutions page that outlines professional rehabilitation models and business plans, it also has a brief outline of the Regional Rehabilitation Centres I envisioned throughout New Zealand.   The sort of regional development I know our entire society would benefit from. NOT PRIVATE ENTERPRISE – these must be government/health controlled as you are going to be dealing with ALL sorts of people – all of them unwell in different ways.


Please contact me to further this discussion and let me share the extensive knowledge I have gained over 15 years of studying the violence industry, law, psychology and rehabilitation. My perspective is invaluable because of my expertise and extensive experience – I know the big picture and I know where the problems are centred.
