Civil Society Actor report to New Zealand Govt for UPR of Human Rights

20 June 2018

 

Report by JR Civil Society Actor, Carterton, New Zealand.

 

Report to the NZ government to advise on their upcoming report on the UPR of Human Rights. Details of abuses of power and gross violations of human rights that deprive disabled mentally injured trauma/abuse victims from professional health care and necessaries of life.

 

The government knows what they are doing wrong, they perpetrate the abuses of power and corruption against people with mental health issues and people they purposely impoverished under neo-liberalism. I have sent so many reports, emails etc there is no need to tell you again. I will make that report to the UN directly during the UPR process. In this document I will outline those things in the area of justice and health that are essential to addressing serious violations of human, disabled and civil rights.

 

JUSTICE

After 15 years of study and assessment of why I am being denied health care and justice it has become quite obvious the justice system for poor people with health and poverty issues is grossly corrupted under the present extremist neo-liberal (note this is not capitalist) system. The lack of separation of powers in disputes between poorest citizens and the crown/their contractors has led to years of injustice, in health, justice, banking, insurance, tenancies, police, human rights, etc. The only way to rectify this situation is bring all decisions in disputes against the crown under the High Court (or its own superior court) system. All other disputes should be under District Court – no exceptions. The New Zealand government and affluent business people (rich & powerful) have proven they cannot be trusted not to abuse their position of power.

 

The power imbalances MUST BE ADDRESSED in regard to these disputes/injustices between rich and poor – laws to keep the peace – much of which has been lost under neo-liberal terrorism (please refer to Terrorism Suppression Act).

 

There must be a dedicated public defender human rights unit with the equivalent resources of NZ government lawyers such as Meredith Connell and crown law. The current system is set up to destroy the ability of lawyers in the community to adequately defend their poorest, most vulnerable and powerless clients against the most powerful – especially the government. We are supposed to be all equal before the law and have equal access to justice, it is a terrorist act to destroy resources to poorest sector of the local population. This injustice causes death and harm – which is currently happening to disabled people with mental health issues. Who are also those purposely impoverished under neo-liberal economic theory.

 

In the past six months I have been denied care by a psychiatrist, psychologist, Occupational Therapist and counsellor, even though I have reports saying my mental health is that severe I require residential care. The police and court staff would also be able to advise of how severe my mental health is when I start self-harming in the cells, or singing, crying, wailing. They will also be able to attest to the deterioration in my ability to cope during the court process – after being dragged through it repeatedly for over a decade – all for non-violent protests trying to get these services I am entitled to.

 

I have made formal complaints about all these health providers refusing me care. This has been happening to me for many years, but over the past 9 months I was encouraged to try to get services again by a senior official at Ministry of Health – he failed and I have come out worse off and more terrified/phobic/disturbed. When I spoke to the Health & Disability Commission about being rejected from these services a few weeks ago (I have been rejected by ACC Occupational Therapists for the past 8 years) without explanation, I was told THEY DIDN’T DEAL WITH ACCESS TO SERVICES. Which is what they always say.

 

They refuse to discuss anything after that about other people getting these services while I was denied them. I believe they are denying me this care to punish me for making complaints and protesting using my art. I have made multiple complaints to police about what is happening to me, senior officers refuse to investigate or take a prosecution against ACC, who have illegally denied me health care and caused me so much suffering and harm – destroyed my life, my family.

 

The solutions are on my website, as I have been telling the government for many years, since I wrote the business plan for Mental Injury Services and my rehabilitation model Fence At the Top Of The Cliff. These are what is supposed to be happening currently but is being denied the vast majority, if not all of those people mentally injured by trauma, abuse and neglect. www.jrmurphypoet.com.

 

Also on my website are two books of poetry, those poems are for the people reading this and those who caused so much harm to so many vulnerable and innocent people.

 

The health system must be brought back under government control – privatization has proven Marxist theory accurate in that it advantages the rich and ends in the persecution and alienation of the poorest. These private health providers (and public mental health services) cannot be trusted to provide the professional health care New Zealand commonwealth citizens are entitled to under law and expect in a civil society.

 

All housing of people with health and poverty issues MUST BE brought back under government control. The market DID NOT adhere to United Nations treaties and constitutional laws and the government have been corrupt cruel, incompetent and unjust in not providing these necessities of life for large numbers of citizens. They use illegal BUDGETS to deny and restrict services, disability services, housing, basic necessities of life to so many people – laws and treaties require ALL PEOPLE TO GET THESE NECESSITIES, not just a few.

 

It is a Crime under Sections 150A and 151 of the Crimes Act to not follow the law and as a result cause harm, criminal negligence. That is what has happened to me and is happening to 1000s of other mentally injured abuse victims like myself. It is also a crime to not provide professional mental health services and experiment on people – like they have done for years with psychotropic drugs on those suffering under their economic model that conflicted with professional health models and laws.

 

The market has also proven it cannot provide meaningful work for people with disabilities and again this requirement under international treaty and laws like ACC, health and disability must be provided BY THE GOVERNMENT WHO SIGNED THE TREATIES and must adhere to Rule of Law. As well as the added requirement to not act unethically and immorally under rule of a monarch that is head of a Christian church. Please refer to my website and postings regarding regional mental health facilities and regional rehabilitation centres. Where the things I learnt at university about professional treatment care rehabilitation and justice are actually provided in a dignified and professional way to all who need it in their local community.

NOW

In the past few weeks I have tested my theory about mental health and been proven right yet again. I have phoned new sexual abuse help line and other suicide help lines, as well as Geneva Health etc trying to get services and very upset. They all hang up on me, they tell me they are only there for people with mild mental health issues, not for people like me who can’t get services. They all suggest I contact Health & Disability Commission but I just got turned down by them last week for another complaint of discrimination by police on my file. They passed the buck to the Privacy Commissioner not knowing I had contacted him at the same time and he told me wasn’t his responsibility, they could say what they wanted.

Also been turned down by a counsellor who I was told was going to assist me in seeing a GP – I currently don’t have one and havn’t been able to see one in almost two years, I have other health issues (please help me I’m scared, other mentally ill people get support to go to the doctor, why not me?). He was going to help me get back the Occupational Therapist etc so my care from 2009 could be REINSTATED as required by two ACC reviews. The counsellor told me that wasn’t his role – but refused to tell me what his role was supposed to be or what ACC told him – I know he had read a psych report of mine saying I was unwell and needed residential care. I have emailed him and asked him what his role was under Privacy Act but have had no acknowledgement.

I have so many stories of discrimination and abuses of mine and others rights, so many I have sent to politicians, justice organisations, etc, all ignored. Sometimes I think writing to politicians etc just helps them work out ways to not give people justice, professional co-ordinated treatment care rehabilitation and safe homes.  Or perhaps avoid compensation payments to those they have harmed with their neo-liberal social experiment.

All this report on Human Rights abuses in New Zealand really wants to achieve is for the government to do what they say they do, according to professional health models, UN treaties and constitutional laws – why is that impossible in 21st Century New Zealand.

 

Kia kaha and aroha to us all

Neo-liberals calling their religion LOCALISM in New Zealand

I have just had a very disturbing telephone conversation with a man called Ron Shaw who lives in Carterton New Zealand.

He is head of a group that calls itself Wairarapa Heart and POWER TO THE PEOPLE, I was interested in going to their meeting after an advertisement in a local community newsletter.  I was concerned reading they were getting in Oliver Hartwhich from BUSINESS ROUND TABLE (now calling themselves NZ Initiative) who I have been following for over a decade. I know what they are and what they BELIEVE – and I know it is causing huge harm in society because the people who believe it are only wealthy affluent people who have very little REAL life experience.

NZ Initiative – Business Round TAble is what they used to be called was started by extremely wealthy international business people living in New Zealand in order to promote neo-liberal economic theories of privatization, less government, banking deregulation, free trade so foreigners could buy up NZ, charities running all health and social services for poor that were created.  They are what known as a RIGHT-WING THINK TANK – these people are deeply disturbed.  I have attended some of their meetings, was receiving their emails until I was blocked without explanation and have reports they put out and news items they make public.

So I phoned Ron Shaw to find out more about the upcoming TELEVISED meeting about POWER TO THE PEOPLE AND GO LOCAL.  I asked Ron if he knew who Oliver and NZ Initiative were and what they did – he said he did.  He then started raving on about how he was a BELIEVER in their ideas, he would have said the world BELIEVE and BELIEVER at least five times at the beginning of our conversation.

These religious neo-liberal terrorists are now calling what they do LOCALISM – according to them encouraging local people to deal with social issues the central government (following neoliberal beliefs) created is how to fix it. Oliver Hartwich is paid a lot of money by the richest business people in New Zealand – feel free to google their Business Round Table/NZ Initiative Board members and some of their public statements and the power they have in this country.  These people are not interested in needs of the poor whatsoever, their only concern is creating increasing wealth for richest in society.

When I said that I was a Civil Society Activist in area of mental health, inequality and neo-liberalism he became even stranger.  I had said about 3 sentences (after his rave about BEING A BELIEVER in neo-liberalism (which he refused to name as that) and he said I was RANTING.  I was taken aback because I had been especially conscious to remain polite and respectful.  I asked him if he knew he was a misogynist and told him how insulting he was being.  He just got worse.

When I started quoting him New Zealand constitutional laws and international UN treaties NZ was signed up to follow, along with social problems like world leading child suicide, violence etc he told me it was CLICHE AFTER CLICHE AFTER CLICHE.  I replied to him that quoting law and facts wasn’t a cliche and asked if he was mentally disturbed?

I said how neo-liberals didn’t believe in providing professional heatlh care and necessaries of life to disabled in the community and he replied with WHY IS THAT????  I said “Because Business Round Table introduced neo-liberalism to New Zealand and neo-liberals didn’t believe in health care or necessaries of life to be provided by government as required.”  He changed the subject and got more insulting.  Quite obviously he was a religious fanatic, like any of those violent terrorists around the world, just disguised in a cloak of western legitimacy.

He then said THERE’S NOT MUCH GOING ON IN YOUR HEAD, IS THERE    – yipes.  I still responded respectfully to that insult, as anybody who follows me will know I am an intelligent. well informed and well educated person and have reports to prove it.  I told him I had reports confirming I was intelligent if he would like to see them, he laughed maniacally – it was deeply disturbing.

I told him neo-liberalism was considered a religious cult by international news agencies and academics and his behaviour and use of language proved this to be correct.

He is running a televised discussion on LOCALISM soon and I am going to be there.  I can’t wait.  I am going to be sooooo cool calm and collected and I know the people opposed to me are going to look like raving violent lunatics – which of course they are – raving religious fanatics.

Many in this community discredit and despise me for a having disability called Complex PTSD, a stress disorder.  When triggered I can over-react and go tourettes, but I have never harmed or threatend harm to any person, nor have I LIED or TRIVIALISED what is happening to disabled poor people with mental health issues.    They don’t know me and the gossips have listened to the mental health & christian groups who have rejected me from services/help because they couldn’t deal with my disorder – not my fault, their fault.  They discredit, gossip and insult me to make themselves feel better about illegally denying me and many others health care and somewhere safe and stable to live.

Feel nervous about posting this as I am realising the extent of the power these neo-liberal terrorist nutters wealthy elites have – we’ll see what happens.  Its already started since our corrupted neo-liberal Labour government got into power.  Last week after I phoned Parliament very unwell begging them to have my health care reinstated and justice provided, their private security firm phoned police to do a welfare visit to my home – in order to terrorise me, no other reason.  Then they had my phone blocked from contacting parliament, any MP or minister.

The reason they did this is I talk to these new young receptionists answering the phones for these new LABOUR (supposed to be left wing) politciians and tell them a little of my story, they are rightly concerned and try and get me help.  This must be when they realise something is wrong with what they are being told is their job and rights of citizens phoning them.  They would then realise what is actually happening to people with mental health issues as a result of abuse and government neglect is different to what they have been told and their bosses are leaving people in inhuman living situations to be harmed & some of them cause harm.

I was also blocked by facebook for 30 days after making a formal complaint about a mental health worker insulting and abusing me on facebook.  Then a few hours ago Max Harris – who an extremely influential public figure at the moment – tried to have me blocked from twitter for telling the truth.

 

The evil of PASSIVE INACTION in New Zealand mental health – Abuses of Power

This email is to people I have been begging for help from for years (some more recent) the passive aggressives I call them (except my last lawyer Susie Barnes) and have had it confirmed they are evil and their passive inaction is too – the inaction of cowards and people who have blind faith in authority – which I do not and I’m no coward either.

Subject: The evil of passive inaction – Philip Zimbado

You people are evil and your systems are too, I do what I do because I am a hero until I die.  I became a hero the first time I was arrested for chalking a poem on a building in Masterton.  When the police officer told me to take my clothes & period soaked underwear & sanitary pad off so I could sit and wait in a short padded suit for mental health team with blood running down my leg for an hour.  I stood their speechless, something snapped and I said “I’ll fight you for them.”  Cop went away to talk to her boss and I didn’t have to remove them and I have NEVER REMOVED MY CLOTHES EVER AGAIN, EVEN WHEN DETAINED UNDER MENTAL HEALTH & NEVER WILL BE EITHER.  I have had it threatened a few times and I end up curled up in corner of the room screaming at them, they are sexual perverts  etc – they usually back off very quickly after that (I don’t do it purposely, its my extreme response when they suggest it, I am so terrified/degraded by what happened.)

After waiting for hours in a cell terrified and stripped of all dignity  (where I had never been in my life) the CATT team turned up .  Andrew Curtis-Cody came, he had been refusing me care for years and that day was no different so he went, said I’m not dealing with her, police looked at each other in disbelief because I was so suicidal and unwell.  After he left they told me to get my clothes back on and let me leave to go back to my car and home with no services to my two school age children – cruelty and evil.  (They pursued a charge of wilful damage for the chalk poetry for next three months before dropping them at the last minute, they have done that many times.)

I looked into this gross violation of my rights, demanding I am stripped naked, I was told it was only a policy and had not been put under Bill of Rights scrutiny – it was also done FOR MY OWN GOOD.  When you watch Philip Zimbardo talking about how evil is done in the name of good you can see how I (all people with mental health issues) ended up having my most basic rights  violated.  That’s what police always said when they came to my home for WELFARE VISITS (dozens of them) DUTY OF CARE required it- even when I wrote multiple letters begging them not to, telling them it terrified me more.  I even had a psychiatrist support what I was saying, police ignored it.  Those people sending them were in health, justice, media & welfare agencies, all the people supposed to help me were sending police to terrorise me.  I made criminal complaints to police under Sections 150A and 151 of Crimes Act, I was ignored – a crime is being committed and police are part of it – that sounds very similar to the abusive power systems in TED talk.

This ‘abuses of power’ information is over nine years old and other studies are much older than this – there are people in power in New Zealand who know mental health systems are abusive and do nothing.   I have known this information for more than a decade because once you understand human instinct – social psychology – it never changes, just like the physiology of a body doesn’t.  I have told 1000s of people what is happening and they have done nothing.  I cried watching this TED talk (which I hadn’t actually seen before surprisingly) I’m the hero and you are evil, I was right and you are wrong.  That can change if you listen to what I have been telling you and start doing something about serious abuses of power in mental health/justice system perpetrated against me and many other vulnerable mentally injured abuse victims.

I am sending this to many of those people who are legally charged with WATCHING THE STORE to stop abuses of power.  It is interesting what Philip says about Iraqui prison and how those in authority put NORMAL/POORLY TRAINED/PEERS into these positions knowing they had created an environment for abuse.  I truly believe from my 15 years of study and experience, there are people within New Zealand government/business community who DESTROYED (not reformed) the mental health system in 1980s to cause harm to both the community and those disabled by mental health issues.

http://www.ted.com Philip Zimbardo knows how easy it is for nice people to turn bad. In this talk, he shares insights and graphic unseen photos from the Abu Ghraib …

Watching this, absorbing it and trying my best to stop HATING and LOATHING all of you.  One thing Philip doesn’t understand, is how those staff in the mental health system are hired for the personality trait of PASSIVE INACTION and complete subservience to authority – no matter how many people are harmed.  SOOOO many people I have told my story, they have shown concern, then said they couldn’t do anything – they participated in this evil.  So many mental health prisoners who have turned on me and really hurt me.  The worst people have always been case managers at ACC and senior staff at mental health services – I truly believe Andrew Curtis-Cody is  a psychopath and I know many other people in our community do as well.

The way mentally ill people have/are being treated is evil and those who supposed to keep checks on those in power have completely failed, I believe to the point of criminal negligence.  That is why the idea that Ron Paterson – being a leader in charge of WATCHING THE STORE in relation to health care of mentally ill people is grossly inappropriate and should be removed immediately from the mental health inquiry.  In his position he violates the principles of Natural Law as he is definitely not unbias, especially when receiving $1400 a day on top of his history of failing to WATCH THE STORE.  He allowed the torture suffering and deaths of so many with MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES and often those around them.

It will all be in my report to the government on human rights for the UPR. The solutions will be in the report I do to the United Nations only – as I know how grossly corrupt ‘you people are’. I do not trust you, when I think of the suffering and harm you have caused and how you have all blamed us, the victims, the suicidal, the violent, the child abusers.  There is extensive evidence to prove women put in toxic inhuman environments without support and in the care of children will violently abuse them.  OUr government created that environment on purpose, refuses to provide support these vulnerable powerless women need, then looks mortified when we have high rates of child abuse.  And the stress men are under to provide when they can’t.  Due to requirements of neo-liberalism to have high unemployment and a terrified working class.

PLEASE  STOP IGNORING ME – THIS IS A CRIME – I AM SCREAMING FOR HEALTH CARE AND JUSTICE I AM ENTITLED TO UNDER NZ LAW.  I AM BEING HARMED BY NOT GETTING HEALTH CARE I AM ENTITLED TO – I AM BEING HARMED FOR BEING FORCED THROUGH JUSTICE SYSTEM REPEATEDLY – I AM BEING HARMED – you are persecuting and subjecting me to criminal/medical negligence.  I desperately need it to stop because I don’t want to die, I don’t want to be tortured and tormented until I’m driven mad,  I want to have somewhere safe to live, I want to return to work and not be treated like worthless human sewage just for asking for things I am entitled to by law – God’s and man’s.

Why neo-liberalism destroys peace in civil society

Explained for Mental Health Inquiry team

 

7 June 2018

 

Mental Health Inquiry

Supplementary Report by Jayne Routhan

Dear Inquiry Team,

I have woken up two days after my report on mental health in New Zealand was sent and realise I havn’t given you my  ‘expert’ assessment of why neo-liberal economic theory is so destructive in society. Also why I am being persecuted, marginalised and psychologically tortured for standing up for my rights and justice in this area by health & justice providers, the community, friends and family (except for a few activists like myself).

Firstly you must watch two important experiments, the Cambridge Prison Experiment and the Milgram Experiment. These illustrate very clearly how people change behaviour dramatically when put in positions of power or subservience (guards or prisoners).   Also that 60% of the population will kill a person purely on encouragement from someone in authority even though they can hear that person screaming in agony (statistics that reduce significantly when the subject can actually see person).

Neo-liberalism is a failure because it creates too many unequal power relationships and when they become abusive/destructive to any person/group, law, morality and ethics is seen as a threat and persecution is the result.

I was deeply disturbed to find out only yesterday that Eric Crampton, who works for the Business Round Table/NZ Initiative (drivers of neo-liberalism in NZ), is now teaching a paper at Victoria University called PUBLIC ECONOMICS. An extremist, who has insulted and discredited me several times when I phoned him trying to discuss the damage this neo-liberal obsession is causing. The course outline begins by saying he teaches how to fit government into the new world economic environment – rather than what is supposed to happen that economic approaches are in line with civilised governments that have strict rules about treatment of citizens – via laws like Commonwealth Charter, Westminister Statute 1st, Magna Carta, Declaration on Human Rights and Economic Social and Cultural rights etc.

 It needs to be made very clear governments and laws were created to KEEP THE PEACE – to stop the continuous injustices and violence (uncivilised behaviour) the strong perpetrated against the weak. It is one of our most basic instincts as animals and in 21st century ‘civilised’ society it creates the most horrendous cruelty if allowed.

Governments and laws were not created to advance the strong/rich/powerful and persecute the weak/poor/powerless. In a civilised just democracy majority rules, HOWEVER majority does not get to use government and laws to advance the rich and persecute the poor – which is what they are doing (which has been accelerated by the adoption of neo-liberal economic theories).

Inequality in and of itself is not a violation of human rights HOWEVER it is a gross violation of human rights to take a country from one of equality, where the poor are cared for as is their right, to one of inequality where the poor are purposely persecuted and wealthy are advanced. I would be very pleased to participate in any recorded public debate on this topic, at any time, with any legal academic ‘expert’ on this planet!  Countries like New Zealand that were once far more caring and willingly compliant to United Nations international treaties/laws.  We lead the world in caring for those less fortunate – now we lead the world in child suicide, self-harm, family violence & homelessness.  I lay the blame for this at the feet of our legal profession, that third arm of democracy that is supposed to prevent the legislature and executive from persecuting citizens.

‘The majority’ are also not allowed to violate RULE OF LAW, most significantly constitutional laws that give power and protection to the weak and restrict abuses of power by the strong. At some time in our history people have understood this and defended constitutional laws with righteous devotion of a religion (which I do). Now neo-liberal terrorists (terrorism as defined by NZ laws I have read) manipulate, denigrate, discredit and complicate these laws so they can continue with their experimental/destructive economic theory. A theory which of course significantly advantages the strong/rich/powerful and disadvantages the weak/poor/powerless.

Not only does New Zealand government violate rule of law they change laws so they can advance rich and disadvantage poor – as I show on my website and can be seen in my treatment over the past 15 years (since I was mentally injured in a sex crime and refused health care I was entitled to and needed). Which is why it is still imperative I get a lawyer, justice and my day in court for those injustices I have suffered to be addressed in a court of law.

The failure of neo-liberal economic theory as a way of running a country/government is obvious in the increasing violence, injustice, addiction, suicide and poverty New Zealand and other neo-liberal countries are experiencing. While those who doing well and in power are firmly focused on others who are doing well and are in firm denial of the harm neo-liberlaism is causing.  That is why trying to FIX the dysfunctional victims of this violence and harm (which is ongoing for 20% of the population) does not work. You can’t heal someone in an unsafe environment, under constant stress and you definitely can’t get them to BE RESILIENT and do it themselves.

It is my opinion from my 15 years of study, there are a group of extremist elites (the strongest) who understand what neo-liberal policies do to weakest in society. They continue promoting neo-liberalism BECAUSE it drives least fortunate of ‘us poor peasants’ mad and creates 1000s of jobs, generating $billions in mental health, drug company profits, justice, security. Jobs and money they needed to generate when they drove 100,000s decent manufacturing jobs out of New Zealand into the hands of other countries with few human/workers rights, jobs we once had.

Humans have been making their own shelter, clothing and food since the beginning of humans, we were never created to be sub-servient to other humans – we are equal, just like Christianity and our legal system tell us. The massive increase since 1970s in SERVICE jobs, RENTAL properties rather than home ownership, unemployment, selfishness/user pays and banks putting money/power into hands of people who have not worked for it, is INHUMAN and ILLEGAL. The environment poorest now supposed to live in is INHUMAN – forcing people from their homes/land on a regular basis IS TERRORISM TORTURE PERSECUTION.

My own situation of standing up to what I knew was wrong, illegal and immoral in area of mental health treatment and inequality etc reflects the treatment of the PRISONER who showed courage (Stanford Prison Exp) and stood up to the bad behaviour of the guards. Not only did the guards attack him, so did the other prisoners and the way it was set up so the rebellious prisoner was hated by the other prisoners IS EXACTLY what is happening in our society.

We must eliminate those aspects of neo-liberal economic theory from our society, that create this inequality and support protection of the strong/rich/powerful at the same time as harming the weak/poor/powerless. Some of that will require changing/removing/revoking laws adopted to implement neo-liberalism in 1980s New Zealand (I contend these laws were ALWAYS illegal, which is why they should be revoked). Some of it will require strengthening of our constitutional laws and simplification of our justice system in this area – which I truly believe has been complicated in order to corrupt it. That is why Westminster Staute the 1st and Magna Carta are recognised as the first two laws of New Zealand.

Finally I wanted to make an appeal to those people reading my report, please help me I desperately need ACC to reinstate my care (including getting me back to university, as I was studying law before I was hurt and the ACC law says they must reinstate me as near as possible to my pre-injury state).

Please help me, I am an intelligent person, please don’t waste the past 15 years of extensive study and learning I have done living in the neo-liberal darklands. Don’t waste my expert knowledge of human behaviour, traumatic stress disorders and constitutional rights violations in the New Zealand context. We could lead the world in dismantling neo-liberal terrorism, rather than lead the world in the promotion of it – which we are currently doing (John Key while PM was head of a world group dedicated to spreading neo-liberalism across the planet and current government priorities and ongoing privatization/globalization focus shows they don’t intend to stop.

Please help me have a voice with my art so it can educate/inform those people radicalised and obsessed with neo-liberal economic theories to the detriment of society. Like in the Milgram experiment where those experimented on were not allowed to see the person they thought they were electrocuting/torturing/harming. Those people who have made New Zealand No 1 in the developed world for child suicide, women self-harming, family violence and homelessness.

Kia kaha and aroha to us all.
