Day of Activism in Wellington, New Zealand

Had an interesting day chalking poetry, attending question time, singing under Seddon and catching up with other activist friends.

Got to Wellington about 12.30pm started chalking comments about John Key, so can be seen from Bowen House and Beehive.  Photos up on twitter @jrmurphypoetry  Also called Judiciary corrupt over mental health care and bought up how much more money banks are making in interest since John Key became PM.

Then went and chalked two poems directly outside Supreme Court on Lambton Quay, good writing surface on large paving, different to footpath.  Had around 6 people stop and say how good my poetry was and good to see this sort of culture and art on the street.  Going to write to the council again and complain about them taking it off and that I have to pay for parking when in the city.

Met up with two friends and attended question time, we had to wait because gallery pretty full after Key’s resignation – several school groups.  I sat and watched govt first but got really upset watching John Key lie about the good he had done, especially for vulnerable people.  Had to leave the gallery crying, security staff up there are really nice to me, went over to other side of house so I didn’t have to look at his face and the other National MPs lying.  Especially about housing and health services.

Always need to have a debrief after watching question time, it is so infuriating – or have a sing and rant about how pissed off I am by what I just saw.  Also recited some poetry – Wasps In The Beehive.

There was a 1080 protest at parliament, would have participated but you can’t before you go into the house – its a rule, you’re banned for 24 hours.

Afterwards talked with friends, hoping to get my FILL THE GALLERY idea out into the Wellington community, focused on election year, disabled/students etc – representing all those people struggling and not happy with current policies.  Said how they were representative of people all over New Zealand that couldn’t make it to Parliament – lets send our polticians a message in election year that we’re going to be watching them and demand they represent and protect us as they are supposed to in a civil society.

Came home and uploaded photos to twitter – don’t know why I didn’t do a video – will next time.

Kia kaha and Aroha to us all.

Dear Diary – Sadly New Zealand Children’s Commissioner Judge Beacroft Corrupt

Woke up this morning with something on my mind and felt I needed to write it in another Diary note.

On Friday I did a protest outside SUPERU (once called Families Commission but govt changed name – George Orwell would be impressed with number of times NZ govt does this) which is on same floor as Children’s Commissioner – 7th floor 110 Featherston Street, Wellington.  Check out my youtube channel for video https://www.youtube.com/user/jrmurphypoet

I did expect to have police called as I know they’re scared of me there for telling the truth about how corrupt and abusive ACC, mental health, CYFS, Human Rights Commission, Ombudsman, police, etc are.  Instead I talked with a couple of people at length about how bad the situation is for mentally injured abuse victims and their families – seems they all understand it is ignorant miserly corrupt politicians creating most of this violence – but there is nothing they can do.

While sitting outside the lifts – as nobody has a reception area any longer because the government want these agencies to be away from any public scrutiny or challenge – they sit behind security doors instead I saw many people coming and going, one of them the Children’s Commissioner.

so Mr Beacroft had to stand waiting for the lift, seeing my painting about how badly me and other abuse victims are being treated.  I recognised him from news reports, which I know he was hoping I wouldn’t – his body language said it all.  So I challenged him, calmly and asked why he didn’t protect the boy who killed Arun Kumar and have ACC and mental health prosecuted under Crimes Act?  Why did a 12 year old boy, with a head injury who ACC and mental health failed repeatedly get prosecuted for murder when it was obviously the fault of those two dreadful, criminally negligent agencies?

Beacrofts body hunched over even more and he almost ran into the lift when it arrived, turned to me and repeated 3 times, I haven’t got time, I havn’t got time, I havn’t got time, then hung his head as the doors shut.  I knew then this revolting man, who has been sending disabled mentally injured abused children to prison for years, according to his profile is one of the most corrupt judges in New Zealand.  This of course is why the National Party would have put him in this position.  It makes my heart ache that our government and judiciary are that corrupt and have been for many years – and nobody has stood up to this gross miscarriage of justice.  This corruption is why I get refused the professional treatment care and rehabilitation I am entitled to under law, its why my complaints of harm under Sections 150A 151 155 157 of the Crimes Act against ACC and others gets ignored.  Its why ACC, police etc instead drag me through court repeatedly for screaming for care I am entitled to after winning two ACC reviews and legally protesting in a NON-VIOLENT away about this injustice.

If an intelligent educated 51 year old woman like myself cannot get the treatment care rehabilitation and justice we are entitled to under New Zealand and international law – then no child is going to.  My passionate protests have been motivated by the suffering and injustice abused children, women and men are going through unnecessarily – I wish I could use that feeling to motivate me in other ways – to stop me eating, get me exercising again, get me sorted around home and find just a little joy in the world.

Its extremely sad that people in power, including police, judges, human rights, etc know what I am saying is true about ACC, mental health and the NZ government but they are committed to keeping up this persecution because neo-liberal politicians say they should.  Ignorant bigoted cruel radicalised abusive corrupt men and women who sit in organisations dedicated to protecting disabled and poor – they are the PASSIVE AGGRESSIVES I talk about.  They are experts at being nice about what is happening and blaming everybody but themselves – after all they are just doing their jobs – and if they weren’t doing what our corrupt abusive politicians said then they wouldn’t have jobs.

I despise the NICE people even more than the CRUEL people – the only solace I get at the moment is knowing under international law when this persecution of mentally injured abuse and trauma victims finally gets exposed then all those people involved will be liable to criminal prosecution.  These people who are allowing the government to withhold health care, access to legal representation and necessaries of life – like a safe house to live in are no different to those who sent Disabled Gypsies and Jews off to the gas chambers.  Now we send people off to kill themselves or kill others – there’s money in that for the corrupt rich and powerful – money in that for judges, lawyers, security firms, justice agencies, welfare agencies, mental health workers, etc.  The similarities between what happened with the NAZIs persecuting minorities and what’s happening with NEO-LIBERALS persecuting minorities are glaringly obvious to me who is LIVING THIS NIGHTMARE.

It makes it worse of course when you live in a street, town, region, country where most people are doing relatively OK.  Where we get bombarded over and over every day what a paradise we live in and how great it is compared with other countries.  Every day on all forms of media its repeated over and over again – so when someone like me comes along and says THE OPPOSITE I am persecuted for it – people refuse to accept it – THE MESSENGER IS SHOT.  Like the group of Wairarapa police officers who feel it is their job to silence, discredit and then abuse me for what I say.

Its the same reason New Zealand media refuse to tell my story or what I know about the truth of just how badly we treat abused children, women and men – how badly we treat families.  The truth that cutting state housing was a terrorist act against mentally injured traumatised people – who were by far the greatest number in state homes.  If you had a traumatic childhood the state helping you by giving you somewhere to live was the least it could do.  It is another deep sadness for me that people who have had good childhoods, been safe and supported, mostly wealthy people – are the ones who are stopping these traumatised people getting homes now.  Worse than that they are getting 30 years of governments to sell off housing so they can buy it – as so much of it is now in desirable housing areas and they don’t think poor disabled people deserve to live in nice areas.

My poem ASIAN BITCH comes to mind, look it up, about my people being greedy and cruel and feeding off the broken – about not learning anything from WWII.  When we violate human rights for minorities (like disabled mentally injured abuse victims and traumatised) we are bringing back the environment that created WWII.  Human Rights laws came out of WWII, some very clever people worked out how Hitler and his NAZIs came to power – things like they stopped FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION by artists like myself – they controlled media.

NZ government created the HPO – Health Promotion Agency to brainwash New Zealanders with propaganda, especially around violence.  They try and make violence NOT ACCEPTABLE when it is the government who pays them that creates most of the stress, discrimination and environment that causes this violence.

I studied to become a lawyer because I believed in the law – now I really understand that the judiciary were willing participants in putting 10,000s of disabled mentally injured abuse victims & traumatised people in prison – knowing they were not receiving the health care they were entitled to under multiple NZ laws – my entire world has been shattered.  Had an excellent discussion when being processed at Wellington Central police station one time with a security guard who was ex-prison officer in 1980s, said prisons filled up when mental health facilities were emptied.  That is blatant discrimination and persecution of disabled mentally injured and mentally ill people – same people who have had housing issues for decades that our media and politicians ignored, until similar housing issues started happening for middle class.

Been feeling – weird/different for a few weeks – trying to accept this gross miscarriage of justice and corruption in my own country, that majority of citizens and rest of world thinks is paradise. :-(

Anne Tolley MP – Either Corrupt or Seriously Deluded Regarding Abuse Victims

My response to Anne Tolley’s garbage about looking after people who were abused in state care – or anybody who suffered childhood abuse for that matter.

Subject: You are either corrupt or seriously deluded

Your comments about abuse victims in state care – in fact ANY ABUSE VICTIMS – is absolute garbage.  I have been involved in this field for 15 years, all of that time screaming for the professional treatment care and rehabilitation I am entitled to from ACC and being mostly refused (or having it provided then illegally removed).  If I can’t get care I am entitled then no child is every going to.

I talk to dozens of people who say exactly the same as me that the system is corrupt, abusive and psychological torture – it is those of us who do not have well functioning families that are the ones who suffer the most.  You are seriously deluded, your government and neo-liberal obsessed radical terrorist friends know the damage they have caused by not providing what mentally injured abuse victims are entitled to under ACC, health, disability, criminal, imperial, human rights and bill of rights laws.

I have six people I know right now who are all suicidal and suffering, all abuse victims 3 women and 3 men.

You disgust me, watched you in the house yesterday, you’ve seen my chalking around Parliament, I’m sure you have seen all my complaints of harm by ACC and others.  I still don’t have a safe house to live in, still petrified my latest flatmate going to hang himself, he barely speaks, there’s something wrong with him – he didn’t like it I asked him to get rid of his dog who kept pooing inside.  I don’t want to live with mentally ill people, I don’t want to live with suicidal people, I don’t want to live with dangerous people who rip me off – even when they are supposed to be under care of NGO!

Why won’t you meet with me, I’ve asked you before – 1 hour and I’ll tell you how bad it is in Carterton.  But then Wairarapa is particularly bad because neo-liberals, mostly National Party, sold off all the state housing in order to gentrify this region – so your rich voter mates have somewhere safe to live.  There will never be anywhere safe while you allow the persecution of so many disabled mentally injured and ill people – you drive these people mad, they used to have state homes to go to, but you stopped all that.  You do realise intelligent people knew why safe stable housing was needed don’t you.  You are seriously disturbed, just like all the other neo-liberal extremist governments around the world who have spent past 30 years advancing rich business people, disadvantaging middle class and persecuting poor.  Driving decent jobs overseas to poor countries with few human rights, violating human rights of disabled people in New Zealand, denying disabled people like myself the necessities of life and leaving me to be harmed and further traumatised – to be marginalised and ostracised because of the situation I am in.

You are a liar, you are ignorant and you refuse to accept what your cruel immoral corrupt government are doing to an entire sector of society.  From my extensive study and research people with histories of abuse seem to be those who are being treated like human sewage – those who become violent particularly (which is an impairment related to their disability according to world experts).  These are the people ending up in jail, harming those around them, addicts and committing suicide.  Of course you love those who harm others and end up in jail, its the ones like me who self-harm and suffer for years rotting on welfare that you despise the most.  What you force police to do to people like me is seriously disturbed, check out my website for what’s happening there.  One day I’m going to get you sickos into a court room – no matter if you leave parliament, what you have done is a crime against humanity for abused and the most vulnerable people in this country.

You are an extremely sick woman – bet you don’t even get this email – that’s why you have staff so you don’t know this pain and suffering you are causing in our communities, for me and so many others.  I have referred you to my website previously, but here it is again, these are the laws, the solutions and the trauma you are causing.

Email to John Key – I am an Activist NOT a Terrorist

Good day chalking in Wellington, John Key was out on a walk so I vented and bollocked the fk out of him – called him a fkn murderer stopping people getting mental health services, stopping people from having safe houses to live in, etc – was really hard for me as I was assaulted by his security officers last time.  Was threatened with arrest again by one of them but stood up to him, told me to leave the area, told him NO WAY, PUBLIC STREET AND I WASN’T MOVING AND I HAD EVERY RIGHT TO SWEAR AT HIM!   When I went into question time about an hour later, same officer escorted me and sat directly behind me – its quite amusing now cause I know I’m never going to do anything while in the house, CAUSE I’M AN ACTIVIST NOT A TERRORIST – never have been violent and never will.

Below is the email I sent to John Key in response to today, I like to reassure him, as I know he’s a frightened bully and a coward.

Subject: I am an activist not a terrorist

Hi John,

I swore at you again on the street today and got threatened with arrest by one of your security staff.  If you can’t handle the language of New Zealanders who are being persecuted by your violent, immoral, criminally negligent policies then you shouldn’t be in Parliament.  I’m a NON-VIOLENT activist, doesn’t stop me venting at you verbally and I never threaten harm, unlike your bullies threaten me – I just tell you what you are doing and that I don’t like it.

Reason I ‘lose it’ when I see you, is you have not been listening to me and 100,000s of other struggling New Zealanders – especially those of us who are disabled by abuse, trauma and neglect.  Not having a safe home to live in is abuse/trauma/neglect; not getting the health care I am legally entitled to from ACC etc so I can heal from the rape and return to work is abuse/trauma/neglect; not listening to what I know about the science behind violence, addiction, suicide and stress disorders is abuse/trauma/neglect; being told I am abusive when I politely tell my MP Alastair Schott how bad ‘the system’ is, is abuse/trauma/neglect; not listening to what I know people are entitled to under law & science is abuse/trauma/neglect; having me dragged through court repeatedly for legally protesting in a non-violent way is abuse/trauma/neglect – I could go on…………..

You were the one who stopped my ACC care illegally in 2009, you ordered ACC to dump 10,000s of claimants and you didn’t care how they did it either.  Of course I am angry with you A LOT of people are, but they don’t tell you and your supporters to their face, like I do.  I despise all people who vote National and if I get the opportunity I tell them that they are the ones who vote for the ongoing cruelty – although from watching the house today I’m not sure if your party are even mentally stable any longer.  Only time I cried today was when Nick Smith was going on about how great government have done with housing?  NOT ONE THING he said would help me get a safe house to live in in Wairarapa – as we don’t have state houses here and proceeds from Trust House (sick sick name) all go to extravagant sports and arts projects and business.  How do you expect a person with CPTSD to heal if they aren’t in a safe place – it is impossible?

This email gives John Key the authority to view my ACC, police, justice and medical file – I have nothing to hide, as I’m sure your security team will already know.  Speaking of them, they didn’t like it when I called them aholes as I was leaving the Parliament today, I realised later that was retaliation for the officer who threatened me when I swore at you in the street – which you deserved – please tell them that.

Lots of people don’t like you, but you’re not the worst in Parliament, Bill English, Nick Smith, Christopher Finlayson, Judith Collins, Anne Tolley, Paula Bennett, Simon Bridges and Amy Adams are.

Have you worked it out yet, 30 yrs of neo-liberal terrorists advancing rich, disadvantaging middle class, persecuting disabled poor, driving decent jobs overseas, cutting state housing, selling off public infrastructure, privatising everything possible and putting in hands of greedy immoral people, cutting health care and making welfare SO SO SO degrading has bought us to now and the seething angry resentful ignorant bigoted country we have become.  Trumped again.

Now if I could get the ACC care I am entitled to, or any other of those mental health services you go on about – that don’t actually work and aren’t actually there for disabled people like myself, then maybe I wouldn’t be so angry and ‘lose it’ when I see you.  Before I was raped and treated like human sewage by those agencies who were legally supposed to help me, I seldom swore and definitely not in public – you and your ignorant supporters have driven me to this.

I chalked some things on the footpath outside Supreme court and across from Parliament for you.  A poem called You’re Cruel I’m Blamed (Google it, check out my website jrmurphypoet.com) was very apt after what your security officer said to me.  Plus I made comments about neo-liberals being terrorists and how the judiciary was participating in this cruelty and criminal negligence – that there were laws in this country that say you cannot advance rich at the same time as disadvantaging poor, you are not allowed to destroy people (like you have destroyed me) and everybody must have access to justice, which of course I don’t – unless I get charged with legally protesting, which I will get off AGAIN.  I can only imagine the amount of money I have cost since I was raped by a badly abused child who didn’t get help he was entitled to, would have been lots cheaper to provide me the treatment care and rehabilitation I am entitled to under ACC, health, disability, criminal, imperial, human rights and bill of rights laws.  As you know from my website me and 1000s of others already know the solutions, YOU CHOOSE not to do them, sad when I know this could be an international business that could bring peace to so many countries.

I find it EXTREMELY offensive when you (and Nick Smith today) wear the white ribbon when you know you create 80% of this violence by traumatising and degrading people.  You refuse to provide professional and adequate mental health services and facilities, you refuse to provide safe housing (mentally ill have had housing issues for years – and majority of people in state houses were from troubled homes.)  You and your neo-liberal terrorist friends created this, then you make money out of it – ahhh THE VIOLENCE INDUSTRY.

One day you will realise just how much suffering and harm you caused so many people in this country, who did not deserve it.  When history looks back at your time as Prime Minister it will be in disgust at what you and your supporters/controllers did.  Karma

ACC & Paula Rebstock are Criminally Negligent and Corrupt – New Zealand 2016

Below yet another email begging to have my care reinstated and professional care/rehabilitation provided – I saw on social media a meeting called #integratedcare held in Wellington today, which is really Occupational Therapy (a method of rehabilitation that has been around for decades) and like I have repeatedly called Multi-disciplinary Approach to Rehabilitation which I studied at Massey University 7 years ago.

People are trying to say this is new – its not new – its what should have been happening – and mental health care (especially trauma care after abuse) should never have been excluded like it has been – thanks to corruption ignorance bigotry and general hatred of abuse victims.  If you read over ACC laws you will see good intelligent educated compassionate NORMAL people developed those rehabilitation requirements (based on Occupational Therapy), they are extensive (especially in the area of social rehabilitation) and detailed.  Just ACC doesn’t do it and nobody seems to give a shit that they are violating laws and harming people – which is a crime under NZ Crimes Act.

If you read over disability documents put out by the government you will see they promised integrated care, if you read over human rights, disabled rights, mental health documents they all say this is happening WHEN I KNOW IT IS NOT!  Because I have known what these people were talking about for 15 years and told thousands of people about it I am currently blocked from Ministry of Social Development, White Ribbon campaign, Human Rights Commission, Health and Disability Commission and so many others.  I am denied any care that even resembles an integrated care plan and police bully and threaten me for speaking out about this gross miscarriage of justice against me and 10,000s of others.

I feel disgusting at the moment, have put on so much weight on top of everything else.  Anyway the email.

Subject: I still havn’t heard from my counsellor about treatment & reinstatement of my rehabilitation

I am very unwell, suffering extreme psychological distress, bombarded with violent suicidal and self-harm thoughts over and over again.  My bulimia is bad, ticking is bad, I am trying to hide it from everybody as much as I can as I don’t want to be threatened, insulted, degraded, abused, forcibly drugged and incarcerated.  My living situation is unsafe and I am still very frightened.  I am still putting on a large amount of weight, I have tried to get help to do some exercise but the person let me down.  I have barely left my bed the past two days I am so unwell.

I have been waiting for many months to see the counsellor Jenny Kirby, she was supposed to phone me, you have not reinstated my rehabilitation similar to that I had in 2009, you have not done anything to ensure I am protected from harm and provided the health care I am entitled to.  You have ignored impairments related to my disability and refuse to support me to even get to Jenny Kirby.  You are violating ACC, health, disability, criminal, imperial, human rights and bill of rights laws.  You are causing me to be discriminated against, driving me to suicide and dysfunction, ensuring I am isolated and marginalised in my community – and frightened to participate.  You have made me dependent instead of resilient and you think its a great joke because you saved that corrupt American Paula Rebstock money – but cost me my life and left no hope for my future.  Now I don’t own a home and will never recover from the past 15 years of discrimination, persecution, abuse and psychological torture.

I have noted on social media a large meeting on #integratedcare being held in Wellington today – this is the same as what I studied at University years ago about Multi-disciplinary approach to rehabilitation – which is what my care in 2009 was the beginnings of (that you illegally withdrew against all professional (and my) advice) - I told you that I wanted this type of professional rehabilitation, instead corrupt cruel immoral and criminal negligent people in ACC stopped it from happening.  Why?

Can you please advise Jenny Kirby when I will be receiving professional rehabilitation as required under law and this nightmare of hell will end, so I can get back to a normal life and work?

GOD PLEASE HELP ME.

New Zealand Police vs JR Murphy

After phoning Police Headquarters Complaint Investigation Unit about huge delay in dealing with police assault in August, I received a phone call from Insp Donna Howard who took over Wairarapa District earlier this year.  What Insp Howard said to me yesterday (18/11/2016) is really pissing me off so I need to write about it, I will send the link to her as well.  Towards the end of our conversation about police phoning me if they have someone phone them ‘concerned for my welfare’, she started saying I should be respectful of HER staff, that I shouldn’t swear at them.  Told her since I was assaulted by one of HER officers I had little respect for them and how dare she expect me to after what they have put me through.  I hung up or I would have started swearing and sent her an email, explaining briefly why I got angry.

Felt I needed to explain the backstory to my rage and disgust in police, especially in the Wairarapa where I live.  Also my disability is Compounding CPTSD, so all the unresolved trauma police have caused builds up, which is why I was having nightmares and was so frightened by noises of cars in my street that police were coming to get me.

It was always a rule of mine not to swear at the police and I didn’t for years, even if several times I wanted to.  My brother in law a Snr Sgt, he told me what to do, not to swear or say the P word.  It wasn’t until they started being vindictive and mean, stripping me naked in the cells and demanding I remove my underwear even when I had my period; charging me with bogus minor crimes then dropping the charges at the last minute or losing the case (around 10 times since illegally ACC withdrew all my care in 2009 and I started protesting).

Taking me up to the cells when they didn’t need to, being violent and degrading (violently arresting me Xmas Eve 2014, refusing me shoes & a jersey when I was sick with flu).  Basher insulting me at home, telling me if I was broke (and I was) that I should sell my furniture -  furniture my friends had given me.  Sykes gossiping about me around town telling people not to let their children come to my house because I was a nutter, another officer hiding a formal complaint over the Xmas Eve event.  Then of course there were the repeated welfare visits (more than 50) which were embarrassing and my neighbours saw.  Most officers were nice but ignored when I said about ACC or mental health refusing me services.

Then there was the late night welfare visit at 11pm earlier this year which was very traumatic for me.  The welfare visit I was taken to Masterton and charged with Misuse of a Telephone for phoning ACC screaming to have my care reinstated (as I had done many times with no response).

  • My case manager had phoned April 2014 telling me my care would be reinstated as it was in 2009, I spent 15 minutes confirming this.  All that happened was I had to do another traumatic assessment with Dr Doris in Auckland, had to catch plane up and back in 1 day, lots of things I had to pay for.  I was very unwell and needed my care back it was psychological torture to be told it would be, telling all my family and friends it would be, then nothing happened.  I still have absolutely no services and my doctor is hopeless - although she wrote to them weeks ago asking why  my care was withdrawn and why it hasn’t been reinstated, just like other doctors have done, and had no response.

Years ago I discovered Sections 150A 151 155 and 157 of the Crimes Act, I know ACC are violating these laws and police have continuously refused to prosecute them.  One officer did look into it but after several months of hope, told me police ‘didn’t know who to prosecute’ so refused to go any further (ACC are a limited liability company, my case manager, the CEO and Chair Paula Rebstock should have been charged – of course there needed to be a thorough investigation to identify others persecuting me but it was never done).  So when ACC phoned and wanted me prosecuted for an extremely minor charge of course I was extremely upset with police – and why should I have any respect for them – they are supposed to uphold the law for me, protect people like me, not just rich and powerful at ACC (who are illegally refusing me and so many others disabled by abuse care and leaving me in harmful situations).

Then of course there are all my protests and the charges I have got off there, that should never have been taken and I told them that over and over again, that I was within my rights, under Bill of Rights laws.

Another vindictive mean thing they did was keep me in the cells overnight twice, where I broke down in the morning both times.  First time was for breaching trespass notice for parliament – I was outside the building – after being told by police they wouldnt’ arrest me the week before, this day they did.  I overhead one of the officers tell another that the order had come down from upstairs (because they wanted to let me go).  My girls were 14 and 15 then and were left home alone.  Also there was already case law that said people can protest on Parliament grounds even if trespassed previously.

Next time was week before Xmas 2014 I violated bail conditions and did a protest at Justice House, I was very unwell, singing, reciting poetry and had my naked torso painting.  I didn’t know I would have to stay and was really upset, was told by police a lawyer couldn’t get me out – found out that was wrong.  Because I have mental health issues they are not allowed to hold you in the cells for longer than six hours – I’m sure the cop didn’t know BUT I should have seen a lawyer.

Also was arrested for not appearing in court – because I couldn’t afford to get there and was traumatised by what had happened in 2013.  Police waited two weeks then picked me up 8am 2 January, a public holiday and my birthday, which they knew.  Initially was angry and traumatised by this, then couldn’t stop laughing on way to court – the shear stupidity and vindictiveness of police was laughable.  Had my kids home for a visit, had a day of things planned I had to delay for three hours.  Other person seeing judge that day was a man who had beaten up his partner and wanted to get out of the cells.  I had done nothing but a non-violent protest begging for my health care to be reinstated by ACC so I could get back to work.

Then of course there was the violent arrest during the Rugby World Cup where I had been protesting outside ACC building and police were called.  I had vented and was really angry but ready to leave when police arrived (I never threatened anybody with harm but called them maggots and swore at them several times).  One officer went inside to talk to staff and one stayed with me and refused to let me leave – other officer came out without speaking and slammed a handcuff on my right wrist.  I freaked out – my stress disorder – pulled away from him like I was being attacked onto the ground screaming in fear, my wrist still attached to his arm.  Have been scared of handcuffs since and always ask, then beg, for them not to be used (nice police officers don’t use them).  You are not allowed to arrest a person like that, you are supposed to warn them they are under arrest etc.  I blame the Sgt who sent two young men to deal with a disabled female protester, as they were having to deal with violent rugby fans every night and just used same tactics on me – inappropriately.

Then of course there were the insults and discrimination that prompted me to chalk pen a swastika onto the Carterton police station.  Telling me I was a liar, that lots of people had tried to help me – I just didn’t want it.  Telling me I was protesting all the time and made it my job because I was mentally ill, again that I was a liar and nobody was being discriminated against or refused care they entitled to.  That my protesting was a joke, that they weren’t scared of me like the others – which showed they were being vindictive.  Threatened in very menacing way if I didn’t stop protesting my innocence and rights under law, saying I had just been assaulted and talking about ACC etc that I would find out just how mean and nasty the officer could become if he wanted.

Why would anybody be scared of me, I’m a single woman with a disability, no partner so no protection from a man, isolated from my family and most of my community - police have an entire force to back them up and they do rightly or wrongly.  Not all police are mean, but those who aren’t are allowing others to do it and not saying anything -which makes them almost as bad.

Then the assault :-( then 3 hours of being held at Masterton Police Station, went into shock after the assault (had only just got over a bad flu week before) refused a blanket.  Tried to make me catch bus home, ended up curled up in a ball in the corner of station banging my back on wall repeating over and over I can’t catch the bus.  left for an hour in even colder part of police station at the front desk.  Cowering from people who walked past, head down, rocking and whimpering that I was cold and wanted to go home.  Go home to a flatmate who didn’t speak and not able to tell any of my friends or family what had happened.  Having no counsellor, social worker, psychologist etc I could tell either.  I did tell my doctor but she ignored it.

Also police have not acted on my complaint of assault by High Court Security in July 2016 when violently detained for wanting to attend court case of Tony Ellis taking government to court over Torture and Inhuman Treatment, which I tried to do and failed previous year, couldn’t get a lawyer and so wanted to see how to do it myself.

Just remembered another police thing where I was arrested at Police HQ earlier this year for getting angry and swearing during a marketing promotion about Its Not OK – went there and started yelling how it wasn’t OK to withhold health care, not have safe homes for people, leaving them with dangerous flatmates, make things worse for them, etc etc.  Usually I would have been 30 mins in police station, given a warning and let go – this time I was held in the cells for five hours to see mental health, who they know I am petrified of and just swear at, then let go.

My complaints to IPCA are also being ignored – apparently I make too many of them – I have made 6 complaints over 8 years (3 in past six months), as soon as I started making complaints things deteriorated with police in Wairarapa.  Police in Wellington nowhere near as bad, especially with the insults, degradation and way I am treated.

All of this I have experienced at the hands of police and I have done my upmost best to stay civil to those who are nice to me – even when I see the uniform and am overwhelmed by all the bad things people in that uniform have done.  So when Inspector Howard says I should not swear or be disrespectful of her officers anybody would understand why I find it extremely difficult and have ever right to talk to them the way I do when they are mean and disrespectful.

Sorry this post is a bit confusing, so many things have happened and I get triggered easily by having to recount what has happened.  Hopefully it shows Inspector Donna Howard and others what I have been subjected to for screaming for the professional health care I am entitled to from ACC (I have won two reviews and still get nothing) and protesting about mental health and justice services in New Zealand being abusive and violating people’s rights.

I find it extremely sad and soul destroying that Human Rights Commission and a multitude of justice and health agencies etc refuse to uphold my rights and protect me from this ongoing persecution – cause persecution is what it is according to definition in my Oxford Dictionary.  All this just so I can get the health care I am entitled to as a mentally injured abuse victim – if an intelligent 51 year old women who knows her rights can’t get professional care then NO MAN WOMAN OR CHILD will get what they entitled to either.  Of course our government, media and disgusting corrupt liberals in the VIOLENCE & ABUSE INDUSTRY will keep telling you it is OK to ask for help and there are heaps of care for people!

I live in sick sick country, in a sick sick world, that ignorant rich violent neo-liberal terrorists run.

Kia kaha to us all.

Violence & Trauma Experts New Zealand

Wanted to share this with news media in New Zealand – who keep censoring what is happening to me as a Civil Society Actor fighting for the rehabilitation and welfare me and 10,000s of other disabled mentally injured abused/traumatised people are entitled to under NZs ACC, health, welfare, disability, criminal, imperial, human rights and bill of rights laws.

New Zealand government are corrupt in this area, after 15 years of study I sure I know why, however it going to take media with integrity to expose this gross miscarriage of justice as it will take down the government and if justice prevails corrupt, criminally negligent politicians, public servants and paid outsiders will go to jail.  I believe the intensity of attacks on me proves ‘the establishment’ is aware of what is going on and doing everything within its power to discredit & stop me EXPOSING THE TRUTH.

Warwick Pudney is the head of Violence & Trauma studies at AUT in Auckland – who I discovered after investigating who was bringing my hero Bessel van der Kolk (world expert in trauma) to NZ

Hi Warwick,

So pleased to talk to you last week, was breath of fresh air to discuss the issues of Violence and Trauma with someone who knows what I know.  Here are the links to my website, I think you will be interested in the legal things I refer to.  Was at a Workbridge seminar last week where we were told they shut down work places for disabled people in 1991- said they were institutions.  This is of course untrue, they should be as much an institution as any medium size business is – a place where people can do meaningful work, within their capabilities, with appropriate support (physical or psychological)  and using their talents.

Check out my posts on Regional Rehabilitation Centres and Regional Mental Health facilities.  Also my Fence At The Top Of The Cliff rehabilitation model might interest you – it is based on ACC laws – should already be happening, which is why I protest A LOT.

If you find any of my poetry useful and would like to use it with your students please contact me.  I am inspired by what Bessel said about the role artists played in healing and expressing the pain of trauma and its aftermath if not treated.

As I said on the phone I would be very keen to be involved in any study or group involved with improving mental health services for traumatised people – especially away from drug based care to professional rehabilitation models and drug free methods.

Now I know you exist I’ll do some research on what you’re doing, I’ve already been telling friends about you on facebook and that you’re running this course.  Would appreciate you sending me any links you think I might be interested in.

www.jrmurphypoet.com

Also check out my social media facebook /jrmurphypoetmusician   twitter @jrmurphypoetry and youtube JR Murphy Poet.  Got some interesting photos, some of the more recent protests where I used chalk pen to do swastikas and a guerrilla artwork of five paintings, also with a swastika on Appeal Court I am currently up on charges for.  Quite proud,  Have been acquitted of four wilful trespass charges so far for different protests – why they keep dragging me through court is another reason I so angry.  After this latest lot I’m pretty sure they’ll stop, currently up on 7 charges, all I should get off under Bill of Rights.  I think the way they treat me for protesting about violence and trauma care shows how much they don’t want to admit the truth and provide what they should be, grrrrr.

Kia kaha to us all.

A new era in mental health care – Regional Rehabilitation Facilities – New Zealand

Another idea to submit for funding for the Innovation Fund – we desperately need this – we are entitled to it.  Could also work in with the Regional Rehabilitation Centres.

GOVERNMENT REGIONAL MENTAL HEALTH FACILITIES

 

Attached please find a rehabilitation model and business plan for Mental Injury Services which outlines where I believe mental health care for mentally injured abuse victims and traumatised people should be going (also for some mentally ill people).  Mental injury being different in nature to mental illness because mental injury is a ‘normal’ person that has been subjected to overwhelming trauma and needs help to recover.  Mental illness is more permanent and requires ongoing care and support.

 

To provide the professional treatment care habilitation and rehabilitation people with mental injury or illness require there needs to be regional mental health facilities.  Shutting down the extensive mental health facilities in the 1990s (based on improving someone’s human rights – when it actually adversely affected these disabled people more)  is incomprehensible and allowing it to continue is reprehensible.  On the news tonight yet another mentally ill man living in the community has killed, this time his mother, an elderly couple and badly injured his father.  There should be better secure facilities for dangerously mentally ill people, the mental health facilities I am advocating for here do not include these people – this is a Fence At the Top of the Cliff – not ambulance at the bottom.  Until people could prove they are safe they would not have access to these facilities.

 

It is too distressing for me to go into the extensive reasons New Zealand (and many other countries) desperately need facilities and safe housing for people with mental health issues.  Facilities to help them heal and those to help them keep busy and feel valued. 

 

The extensive use of pharmaceuticals to try and control people, who more importantly need the basic needs met (please refer Maslow’s Heirachy of Needs), is part of the failure of mental health services and a gross miscarriage of justice.  The use of pharmaceuticals was a result of neo-liberal theories that it was cheaper to give a person a drug and put them in the community than actually providing professional treatment care and rehabilitation.  News reports have stated the government undertook to make the mental health services drug based to save money – it hasn’t.  Many of these drugs are highly experimental and have been linked to increases in psychopathy, suicide, mass murders and psychosis.  All the things they are supposed stop, they actually create.

 

I envisage these mental health centres be based on professional rehabilitation practices with client based approach and practical therapies like gardening – opportunities to participate in growing food etc.  Working in the earth is very good therapy and can be used to reduce stress if the person goes back in the community.  Group therapy is important as people will need to be able to communicate and support each other in the community, learning skills here will help in society.  It will help people who have been mentally injured pass on what they learn and experience to others. 

 

Art is another huge part of healing and therapy in the area of mental health with traumatised people having highly active right brains.  People should be able to explore their creativity and see it come to fruition if possible.  The cultural value for society is extensive and could lead to further work and recognition outside the mental health facility.  Talent could be identified and advanced with advocacy.  I envisage cultural events like plays, exhibitions etc that would entertain international visitors along with making souvenirs perhaps. 

 

I envisage six week ‘retreats’ for mentally injured people with rehabilitation in the community prior to the retreats and following them, until the person is well enough to live independently, if that is possible.

 

ACC to build regional mental health facilities to cater to the people I have described above.  Put the $billions they have invested in foreign markets, businesses that destroy the planet, security providers, into building these facilities.  Make them of a very high quality using sustainable building practices, similar to the Regional Rehabilitation Centres.  The mental health facilities will have accommodation for clients and support staff – mental health challenges happen 24 hours a day seven days a week.

The Innovation of Collaboration – Regional Rehabilitation Centres in New Zealand

Am currently writing my submission for government innovation funding and felt I needed to put it on my website.  I’m only half way through editing and will post the finalised version soon.  Information on this website will make up part of my submission – have to keep focused on moving forward and doing what I know is right – as the current situation with police, ACC and others is dragging me into the darklands of hell on a regular basis.

Kia kaha to us all – NECESSITY IS THE MOTHER OF INVENTION – nobody can say I don’t have solutions to the issues I repeatedly complain about.

DRAFT

The potential to positively transform New Zealand’s economic performance, the sustainability and integrity of our environment, help strengthen our society and give effect to the Treaty of Waitangi

 

Introduction

It is a fundamental flaw in neo-liberal capitalism that 80% of the people who are disabled in some way and cannot provide for themselves or not work at 100% capacity are consigned to lives of poverty and unfulfilled aspirations.  In my opinion it is the most serious sign of an uncivilised society to not provide for those less fortunate – allowing strong to attack weak is against multiple laws (including religious ones). 

 

My submission combines the medical sciences (particularly Occupational Therapy) with law and the untapped creativity and unrealised productivity of the 100,000s of disabled people living in New Zealand.  It also addresses issues successive governments and researchers have identified about unemployment, violence, addiction and suicide/mental health issues.

 

The three main areas of innovation I am applying for involve Disability Services, NZs Disabled Creative workforce and Mental Health – these would also be eligible for research funding as I envisage all three to be teaching and data gathering environments.

 

I am particularly guided in my innovations by government disability documents, signed United Nations documents, along with ACC, health, disability, criminal, imperial, human rights and Bill of Rights legislation.  Necessity being the mother of invention when your area of expertise is stress disorders, poverty, disability, law and living the current nightmare of social dysfunction created by radicalised capitalism (ie neo-liberalism).

Scientifically it is recognised that traumatised people have high blood flow to the right brain, the creative brain – a physiological change in how the brain functions that ensured the success of our species when confronted with life-threatening situations.  This is a state many disabled and mentally injured people now experience in our neo-liberal society.

 

Although my ideas fit within parts of the application for funding under this mechanism, there seems to be other parts which are barriers to the fulfilment of my ideas because I am not part of an organisation.  I would suggest this isolation, my 14 years of full time study in this area and my extensive breadth of knowledge and personal experience are what make me an innovator (with necessity being the mother of invention).  I see my ideas as an ‘innovation of collaboration’ by turning laws, research and rhetoric into practical useful resources and services for all citizens.

 

This is indeed an investment that focuses on long-term transformative impact for those affected by disability, poverty, violence, addiction, mental injury and mental illness.  This is a Top of The Cliff innovation in the area of mental health and welfare – not the current Bottom Of The Cliff mentality lead by people obsessed with neo-liberal economic theories of providing services to those who cost the most – eg those who end up in the justice system and causing harm in society.  In the area of disability caused by accident, including sexual and physical abuse, ACC are supposed to be the experts and have the resources to contribute significantly to ensure these innovations are realised quickly, professionally and regionally.  It would be fundamentally wrong and flawed to exclude people who were disabled by illness or born with disability – they have a right to work (and self-actualise) as do injured people – it would just require funding to come from a different avenue. 

 

I envisage some of the $4billion annual savings by ACC could be INVESTED in these centres and in the disabled people of New Zealand so they can contribute and have the opportunity to fulfil their potention.

 

I will also take this opportunity to suggest how these centres can be put into operation extremely quickly (which would also work for social housing).  As I walk around Wellington and travel the roads I see huge resources going into public and private works, resources that could be diverted for a very short time (say 2 weeks) to focus on these regional disability centres (and maybe the same done for mental health facilities – which I think are more appropriately set in more rural/quiet areas).  This would include site works – similar to what is happening on our roads and building works, like those used to refurbish Ministry of Health building, Ministry of Education and Victoria University.  Whatever resources are used, business people and tradespeople should have the opportunity to participate as an integral part of strengthening our society.

 

I believe suitable land should be taken under the Public Works Act and particularly from owners who are hampering development for personal gain.

 

My inspiration is watching television home renovation programmes and watching Mormon churches being built in very short time frames by large numbers of people.  I expect many people involved in such a project who I am sure would become proud of the part they play – especially when the rewards of such work become realised (I predict significant almost instantaneous decreases in violence, addiction and suicide statistics).

 

Such a large project would of course take some organisation, however it would be easily done as we have many people in New Zealand who have had experience.

 

It may of course be more cost effective and appropriate to purchase an existing building for conversion in some cases – as I see these rehabilitation centres being near the heart of our communities rather than on the fringes, while, as I said above, the mental health rehabilitation centres being in quieter more healing environments.

 

 

GOVERNMENT REGIONAL REHABILTATION CENTRES

 

It has been proven to me repeatedly and based on professional research that Non-Government Organisations do not work in mental health environments – which I see each of these areas being.    It has also been proven that basing mental health care on the current drug based experimental system, which fails to provide the necessaries of life (as outlined by Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs) is also a failure.

 

At a recent event organised by the Human Rights Commission the Special Rapporteur for Disability advised that as Governments had signed the Convention on the Rights of People with Disabilities in 2008 and other United Nations documents, it was their responsibility to provide the services/resources required to fulfil its obligations, not ‘the community’.  Four years ago I was also part of an event that discussed fiscal responsibility in the area of crime, where a speaker (Mike Bazette) referred to extensive studies in UK that pointed to NGOs being unreliable and untrustworthy to deal with with disabled people who had high needs/challenging behavioural issues (ie they said one thing and did another).  As a result those clients who society wanted to get more services actually got less, which caused significant increases in crime, violence, addiction and social dysfunction.  I can confirm this is happening in New Zealand currently, also with the government demanding public mental health services operate under commercial models, it is happening in this system.

 

It is a neo-liberal philosophy to introduce as much private enterprise into all aspects of our society, including health care, to this end governments have made it more and more difficult for people to access health care so they are driven by necessity and desperation to pay for it themselves (eg Capri Hospital & increasing need for health insurance).  If they cannot pay for it themselves they are subject to ongoing persecution and inhuman living environments.  Recent advertising by Capri targeted middle class and affluent parents of young people who had drug addiction – offering far superior services to what the public system would.

 

In more recent times neo-liberalism has been exposed as an extremely socially destructive economic philosophy with all the outcomes contributing to inequality (concentrations of power and money in small groups with unprecedented political influence), poverty, violence, addiction, suicide, unemployment and under-employment. 

 

A series of documentaries called The Hard Stuff by Nigel Latta touched on some of the issues this radicalised form of capitalism has created in NZ and other modern societies.  So have documentaries by Bryan Bruce.  A premise of neo-liberalism is everybody is responsible for themselves which contradicts human nature and us as social animals living in large organised ‘civilised’ societies, reliant on each other for physical and psychological good health.

  

Every region in New Zealand should have a habilitation/rehabilitation centre where people with disabilities of all types can go and work, within the capabilities, doing worthwhile rewarding work that fulfils their self-actualising, psychosocial and physical needs.

 

I envisage these centres to consist of a large warehouses capable of building homes for disabled people.  Housing being the greatest area of need and unmet government responsibility at the moment, building houses is the most practical thing to do, especially with disabled people being the most adversely affected by the current severe housing shortages.

 

“In times of high unemployment it is disabled people who suffer most.”

Person to Person, Lindsay Gething, 3rd ed 2006

 

These centres would also be training places for Occupational Safety and Health professionals, health workers, Occupation Therapists, etc and research and development in the area of disability support services/devices.  Work would be done by teams, based on the capabilities and talents of the disabled person working with others however no mentally injured sex offenders working with mentally injured abuse victims, or potentially dangerous people working with vulnerable.  Developing teams and schedules would be done with mental health professionals to ensure supportive safe environments.

 

These Centres would be available to all physically and psychologically disabled people.  Will run using professionals in health and habilitation and rehabilitation processes and models.  It will also follow legal requirements. 

 

I have spoken to several people with disabilities who are unable to work and they were extremely enthusiastic about the idea of being able to work in a group doing something within their capabilities and valuable to society.  A man I know with a bad back, he injured when a child, was very keen to be part of a centre like this.  He and I have talked about the isolation of being unemployed and being despised for it, it seemed especially difficult for a man.  Because he can do some things on good days he couldn’t work for a traditional employer because of his need to not sit too long or stand too long – or not be able to work at all on bad days.  Sadly people saw him selling scrap metal and judged him for being a bludger on welfare.

 

I can picture these rehab centres with 2 or 3 houses at various stages of completion, surrounded by equipment that would enable people with physical disabilities to work.  Equipment that perhaps could be developed and improved with onsite collaboration between disabled people and engineers.  Surrounded by specially designed scaffolding.  There would be rooms for health care/rehabilitation professionals, rooms for massage, physiotherapy and rest for clients. 

 

Healthy food would be provided so people didn’t have to do their own meals and some of those people who prepared it should also be disabled, perhaps adding variety to their weeks work and could get training as well.  There should be gardens attached to the rehabilitation centre to provide vegetables and fruit as growing food is an important life skill when you don’t have a lot of money and extremely good therapy. 

 

There must be a good transport network for people attending these rehabilitation centres, they should be picked up at their door and taken home, if they need that. 

 

Given New Zealands need for an increased labour force during fruit picking season that teams of disabled people with specialist equipment for these jobs are sent to work in orchards, market gardens, etc.  Remuneration for their work would be paid to the Rehabilitation Centre and distributed in a fair manner.  Disabled should could also be considered a flexible labour force and centres should allow for this.

 

Disabled people working at rehabilitation centres must be paid a reasonable wage (provided a reasonable income) with perhaps 2-3 different pay grades.  Every person who contributes to building a house in some way should be eligible to own one of those houses when available (or perhaps be eligible for a state house loan).  It is a cultural and human right to own your own home and disabled people who are unable to work should not be excluded from this.  There are multiple economic and social advantages to society for a disabled vulnerable person to have their own safe home to live in, especially as they age.   This would also be adhering to the Disability Action Plan and Strategy and Declaration on Disabled Rights, also Human Rights and economic rights.

These rehabilitation centres would be a hub of employment for support workers, educators, tradespeople and health professionals.  Also places where able bodied and disabled people undertook formal training that was absent from the local community or not.

 

This regional rehabilitation centre idea came to me during a recent meeting on disability rights (at Te Papa with Catarina Aguila), a tall/large tetraplegic man in a wheelchair spoke about not having access to most disabled areas because his wheelchair was so large.  He was obvious an intelligent man around 30 and deeply distressed by his physical impairments.  I thought about what he could do in this facility and pictured him organising building materials and managing work plans for upcoming construction, on the phone a lot or a specialised computer as he had very limited use of his hands.

 

Many years ago I read a book called Think and Grow Rich (rich in all areas of life) and it talked a lot about being rich in potential and just finding out what that potential was, irrelevant of perceived limitations.  For example a man taught his partially deaf son that his disability was going to be an advantage when he was a man not a hindrance.  The boy ended up being a very successful sales rep and developer for a hearing aid manufacturer.

 

People at these rehabilitation centres should also have access to business, research and development funding and resources, so we can tap into people’s creativity.  I believe giving disabled people the opportunity to reach their potential (also self-actualise) would be a competitive advantage internationally.

 

The psycho-social benefits of these regional rehabilitation centres cannot be under-estimated with the WHO and UN identifying the increasing problems with social cohesion in developed countries.  These centres will strengthen our society.

 

I have never ever met a person who doesn’t want to work, especially a disabled person, but nobody should be expected to work in physical pain and no intelligent person should be expected to do particularly mundane work for long periods of time.  These centres should be about balance and those things identified as necessaries of a good life in Maslow’s Heirachy of Needs.

 

I believe through these rehabilitation centres people with ‘talents’ could be identified and placed in jobs in public and private enterprise – or contracted to them perhaps.  I know personally in mental health there are some very intelligent people – in fact intelligence can worsen mental health issues in many cases.  Many of these people are also highly creative, innovation and creativity being something Nigel Latta identified in his recent documentary as important to the development of a high wage economy and lowering of unemployment and poverty.

 

It is imperative and sensible for the homes (or other things) manufactured/created in these centres use sustainable, environmentally friendly products as a priority.   That they also support NZ manufacturers to avoid miles travelled where possible.  They should have their own electricity generation options, like solar, window power, dynamos, etc.

 

The nature of the centres will allow for experimentation and labour intensive manufacturing/construction, areas the private sector avoids.  I envisages houses being made with extra wide doorways, large bathrooms, etc.  Also manufacturing of special features in the centre.  Designed and built with specific disabled people in mind, working with the person and Occupational Therapists.

 

Support of disabled workers to be run through multi-disciplinary teams, as outlined in Shrawan Kumar’s book Multi-disciplinary Approach to Rehabilitation.

Judge B Davidson – corrupt elitist pig – New Zealand

Below is the ruling of Judge B Davidson in a private prosecution I tried to take against the government – I only chose John Key because I didn’t know who I should do it to, so I chose the boss.  This judge recently discharged a rugby player without conviction for a violent assault of four people.  Following the ruling I’ll put the details of my case and how I told the judge I couldn’t get a lawyer to help me so just did what I thought was right.  Also this judge is the one who put me on to the Imperial Laws Application Act, which proves without doubt neo-liberalism is illegal and magna carta is being violated.

I made a formal complaint about him to Office of Judicial Conduct – they ignored me.

1.    Ms Routhan seeks to file five charging documents against the Prime Minister alleging offences under the Crimes of Torture Act 1989 and Crimes Act 1961 and the Magna Carta 1215.

2.     Each is supported by a brief explanatory note and a statement from her dated 19 June 2015.  As well she has lodged 179 photographs and a copy of a book.  The black book of poetry, apparently dedicated to ‘casualties of abuse and neglect’.

3.    For reasons which I will explain shortly it is unnecessary for me to detail those particulars, her statements, the photographs and the book content.  I have however, read it all.  In essence the material provides widespread and broad allegations of her torture and abuse at the hands of the state.  The charges are levelled at the Prime Minister for failing to provide her appropriate protection, treatment and care.

4.     Under s 26(3) I direct that the five charging documents not be accepted for filing as each is an abuse of process.

5.    In particular:

5.1    The charge document alleging an offence under s 3 of Crimes of Torture Act 1989 requires the Attorney General’s consent, under s 12 to prosecute.  No such consent has been provided.

5.2    The charging documents under Sections 150A and 151 Crimes Act 1961 do not disclose any offence with any degree of particularity at all.  The sections referred to set out the standard of care required of certain persons and the duty itself to provide necessaries and protect from injury.  Neither charging document contains any particulars of the time, date, place or occasion of breach, who by and how.  The only detail given is as to date (between January 2009 and June 2015) and place (various addresses in Wainuiomata and Wairarapa).

5.3    The charging documents under sections 39 and 40 Magna Carta 1215 rely on sections that are not part of New Zealand law.  The only clause of the Magna Carta applicable in New Zealand is section 29: Section section 3 and schedules 1 and 2 Imperial Laws Application Act 1988.

B DAVIDSON
DISTRICT COURT JUDGE

————————————————————————————————————————

The following are the statements I made attached to each form for filing these private prosecutions – I tell him I don’t know what I’m doing and can’t get a lawyer that I am entitled to.

19 June 2015

 Statement by JER Carterton

 I have been chalking section 40 of the Magna Carta around Wellington streets since 2009 when ACC illegally withdrew all my health care.  There is a copy of what it says on my wall.  “To no-one will we sell, to no-one will we delay or deny right or justice.”

 If I could afford a lawyer I would have one to ensure I was getting the professional health care I know I am entitled to under ACC, health, disability, criminal, human rights and bill of rights laws.  I would also ensure I was getting the right and justice I am seeking in regard to my health care and ability to represent myself.  It is imperative a judge adjudicates on the issues I have with the government (through ACC, mental health services and welfare agencies) and the corruption of neo-liberal political theories disabled poor people are currently suffering under in New Zealand.

 People are very angry, I am very angry watching what I know to be cruel, immoral, inhuman treatment of thousands of abused, mentally injured (like myself) and mentally ill people in New Zealand.  Every police officer I have ever discussed this with agrees what is happening is wrong.  When I am before a court for protesting (wilful trespass) about this issue every person, including the judge have their heads about as low as they can and most cannot look at me.  They know what I am saying is right.

 It is not right that the government can cut health and welfare services to mentally injured and mentally ill people, who are then ending up in the justice system as a matter of neo-liberal process.  I don’t end up in the court system for violence or crimes against innocent people, I am there for passionately protesting about what is happening to me and others as I know it to be so wrong.

 I can read law, I was studying to be a lawyer in 2001 before I was raped and mentally injured.  I know what I am entitled to under ACC, health, disability, criminal, human rights and bill of rights laws.  I know this but I have never been able to take my claims of criminal negligence and injustice to a court because of impairments related to my disability and a lack of money.  As I have been forced to live on welfare for the past 13 years.

 I have done EVERYTHING in my power to have these injustices dealt with to no avail.  I have proof of complaints to Health and Disability Commission, Human Rights Commission and Review Tribunal – I was not believed. 

 The lawyers who took me years to find are John Miller and another woman I cannot remember her name now.  John Miller had my case for a year then told me it was too complicated and he could not act for me (he took the $1000 legal aid though).  The other woman had my case through ACC, after I had won my first review to get my care from 2009 back and ACC refused I went on a 46 day hunger strike.

 My lawyer at the time begged me to stop as she could not get the case heard before I would have died.  I stopped and became severely suicidal waiting for her to take my case to the District Court we had agreed.  I waited for weeks in the most terrible torment, trying to stay alive and not let my dysfunction impact on my children.  She had even given me a date she would be taking it to court, when this date passed and I heard nothing I phoned her and she told me she had lied and taken my case to a second review hearing.  I sacked her on the spot – if your lawyer is prepared to lie to you when you are that ill then she is incompetent and corrupt.

 I won the second review, though was unable to participate in it as I was very unwell.  That was around four years ago now and it wasn’t until two months ago that ACC phoned me and said they were going to reinstate my care similar to what it had been in 2009.  I am supposed to be seeing a psychiatrist next week for yet another assessment, which they refused to waive, in order to have my care reinstated.  I have seen Dr Alan Doris before and he has been extremely critical of ACC for the way they dumped me from care in 2009.  The report is in my boxes of files somewhere but I cannot find it or look for it as I become highly suicidal and want to self-harm.

 This letter to accompany the charging documents under Section 40 of the Magna Carta 1215 is to also show that I desperately need a lawyer in order to get protection and justice.  I have phoned so many lawyers and been told they were not trained in the area of law I was discussing, were too busy, my case was too complicated and others would not do it because I would have been needing legal aid.  Please refer to my poems about John Miller Law and Something’s Wrong Tony Ellis.

 Please refer to my book of poetry The Black Book (ISBN 978-0-473-31199-5) and photographs submitted to the court in relation to the five charges.  I am not in a position to replicate this information five times.

 My only criminal charge is of the Law Society in Wellington when I went there and refused to leave until they provided me with professional representation and protection of a lawyer to force ACC and mental health to provide me the care I knew I was entitled to, and protect me from the police who were being used to intimidate and bully me. 

 I will be in court again on 8 July in Masterton for wilful trespass of Masterton Hospital for a protest I did on the law outside the DHB offices earlier this year. 

 Having exhausted all formal avenues for justice over the past 13 years since I was raped, activism and protesting are all that is left for me.  Speaking truth to power was my new year’s resolution (after I was violently arrested Xmas Eve, when sick with the flu and distraught about my unstable living situation).

 In this submitting these Charging Documents I knowing they don’t have all the stories of what has happened to me and I cannot repeat them again as my disorder Complex Post Traumatic Stress disorder is also compounding.  What this means is if I recollect too many traumatic experiences at one time I become severely traumatised and cannot function, will be prone to self-harm and could commit suicide.  (Although with prayer and will I have managed to stay alive this long – not that it is a real life – being constantly bombarded with thoughts of suicide and death at the hands of yourself is no different to being threatened with death by another person on a daily basis – the impact on the psych is the same.)

Because of the impairments related to my disability (which under law must be accommodated if possible) it would not be right or just to refuse to allow this charge against John Key Prime Minister to go through to the next stage in front of a judge to decide. 

In that time I hope either the courts will appoint me a lawyer or I will have the strength I need to gather together the further evidence to prove my case of injustice and being denied right and justice because I do not have the money to pay for legal representation.

I have become emotional and can’t stop crying, so I will have to end here and pray with all my heart that what I have said and given you to-date will be sufficient to succeed through to a court hearing.

Earlier this week the government had a function organised by Chistopher Finlayson to commemorate the Magna Carta – the very people who are abusing it are pretending they abide by it.  This is not true and this must be addressed, thousands of innocent abused and disabled people are suffering prolonged neglect and poverty.  They are being left in inappropriate, unstable, unsafe housing in the community and from a recent poll of discrimination it was found over 50% of people would not like mentally ill people living next to them.

This document and charge is related to five other charges I am bringing against John Key under various criminal laws, all filed today 19 June 2015, the 800th Anniversary of the signing of the Magna Carta.

I would like to refer you to the NZ National Anthem and the line that says we will be protected from dissension envy and hate – I can assure you this is what we have in New Zealand now after 30 years of austerity against the poor and vulnerable while advancing the wants of the rich and powerful.

I have attached a copy of a statement of account for legal aid debt from last year when Michael Bott represented me against the Law Society wilful trespass charge and two other charges (that were dropped) of ACC and Ministry of Health in Wellington.  I get $400 per week on invalid’s benefit and have to apply for this every three months or it would be $315 (it is nothing more than repeated degradation).  My rent is $250, I am unable to sustain flatmates as I am continuously victimized by people I have lived with (including two attempting suicide) and even further traumatised.  I would like to tell the court about all these experiences when it is appropriate and in a safe place.

If I do in fact get my care back, which I don’t believe I will, as ACC have lied repeatedly then I hope to be well enough to talk about what has happened to me as a disabled abuse victim begging for care, being a parent, daughter, sister, friend and citizen.  It is happening to me and it is happening to many I meet when I am protesting, the stories break my heart and motivate me to go to such extremes as taking a private prosecution just so I can get this gross miscarriage of justice exposed and stopped.

 Kia kaha to us all

Statement by JER, Carterton

 I am about to start this and the emotion is overwhelming me, how the police have been used to intimidate and bully me for demanding and needing the professional health care promised under ACC, health, disability, criminal, human rights and bill of rights laws is persecution and torture.

 How I am treated by the police varies greatly depending on the person,  I would like to refer to my police file at this point to highlight all the times I have been seen by police, have been detained by police and been prosecuted by police. 

 I am not able to look at my police file as it makes me very unwell, I got a copy of it a few years ago and on page 3 it said I was ‘mental’ and a danger to police safety.  I wasn’t able to read past that and have had a rocky relationship with police since ACC illegally cut all my care in 2009, after National became the government and installed neo-liberal Business Round Table advocate John Judge, then Paula Rebstock.

 Can the judge please consider my police file as being evidence to what has been happening me as I fight for the care I know I am entitled to.  Please note that all complaints to police about me being suicidal are from people who are public servants and/or agents of the government.  I would tell these people I was begging for help or justice from how bad I felt and they would phone police but never help me get care.  This is a gross miscarriage of justice and proof what is happening in the real world I live in is very different to what the government and these agencies promote.

 It makes me want to be violently ill when I think that forcing suicidal people to take their clothes off and put on the crazy suit is police policy and when I tried to challenge it as being extremely degrading and against human rights laws I was ignored.  They only got my clothes off me once, during my first protest, chalking Journalists are Maggots on the Times Age building in Masterton.  When I got down to my underwear I was told to take them off as well, I had my period and said I couldn’t – I was told I had to.  That is when my respect for the police and the government ended.  I told the officer I would fight her for my underwear as there was no way I was going to let blood run down my leg in front of so many men.  This policy is not law and therefore was not subject to scrutiny under Bill of Rights and Human Rights laws.

 Over the past 30 years as neo-liberalism has relentlessly destroyed our unique Kiwi culture these attacks and laws on suicidal people have steadily increased.  It are the policies that are driving people to suicide and then the government and authorities blame the victims for a completely human response to an inhuman living environment. 

 New Zealand is a beautiful country, there is enough resources for everybody to have the necessaries of life.  Giving massive tax cuts to the wealthiest people and organisations in this country while at the same time stopping poor people (rich people can still get this care and justice) from getting the health care and justice they are entitled to is immoral and against the law.

 Also the massive social issues that have arisen due to high unemployment and concentration of wealth into the richest 20% of society – are being somehow blamed on the victims of these social issues, like violence, mental illness, poverty, ill health etc.  It was very sad to see all the changes that have been made to the Social Welfare and Social Security Acts over the past decade, all aimed at blaming those who can’t get work.  When we all know deregulation, free trade and neo-liberalism was instrumental in hundreds of thousands of manufacturing jobs moving offshore to be done by people who are treated like slaves in poorer countries.

 I will be addressing this issue in another private charge in the near future.

 I told a judge recently, when going through the court system over my protests at Masterton Hospital that I will take no more – and I won’t.  No more are you going to treat disabled, abused, mentally injured and ill people like you are.  Everybody knows it is wrong – EVERYBODY.

 I know other people who are degraded and persecuted by police for being suicidal and I have experiences of people who attempted suicide who were living with me that I would like to be able to present to the court.  I cannot talk about them now I am too unwell.

 I would like all book of poetry The Black Book ISBN 978-0-473-31199-5 to form part of this case but I do not have the resources to do a copy for each of the five charges.  I would also like all my photographs to form part of this.

 Please help me get a lawyer, there is so much you don’t know, so many things.  These people have driven me insane, they have turned my family and community against me, just because I couldn’t get the professional health care I was entitled to.

 I can’t go on with this document.

 Kia kaha to us all.

Statement by JER, Carterton

My evidence of this torture is contained in my The Black Book of poetry ISBN 978-0-473-

31199-5 and in the selection of 179 photographs I have presented showing my ongoing years of protests and the art works I have done.  If this charge goes through to the next stage I will be able to discuss in more detail what was happening in many of these photos.  There are also videos I wanted to submit as part of this complaint but was unable to download them, due to lack of knowledge.  These also would form part of my case if this goes further.

I have also included a few letters of the type I have been sending since 2002, when I was raped and started trying to get the professional health care I was entitled to and needed to heal from my mental injury, return to work and study as well as parent my two children to the best of my ability.

I have years of letters and emails to prove my case of torture, but I am only able to give you what I have now as I do not have legal representation to help me.  I hope and pray with all my heart that this evidence will be proof enough that my private prosecution case is sufficient to go to the next step and I get these injustices against me decided on by a judge.  As required under the Magna Carta 2015.

Please consider all evidence for the five charges I have levelled at the prime minister under this charge.  I do not have the resources or fortitude to provide all documents for each charge.

I find it desperately sad that I am having to take this action when I know the law and know how I should be treated and what justice I am supposed to be receiving.  I know I am extremely insignificant and you will see from some of my poetry and songs, consider myself human sewage.  My poetry repeatedly refers to being traumatised and tortured.

 Because of my stress disorder I have been discredited by other justice and health agencies.  However I do have a report (ordered by the court when mental health refused) last year by Justin Barry-Walsh that states, I am intelligent, do not have a personality disorder and am not delusional.  This is what mental health and justice services had been saying for years (not Alan Doris) just those services who were rejecting me over and over again.  Mostly because of underfunding of mental health services to the point of abuse and criminal neglect.

 If Justin is right –which of course he is then I have every right and every reason to take the government and John Key to court for torturing me.  It also hurts me deeply watching other people I know being harmed in this way and so many stories when I am protesting of people suffering and killing themselves.  I cannot take a charge of murder or manslaughter because I am not dead – no matter how many times I have come so close following abuse and discrimination by mental health and justice services.  For me it has to be torture and it is.  Being told there are services, reading in the law how disabled sick people are supposed to be treated and experiencing exactly the opposite drives you insane.

 I can’t go on with this statement.

Kia kaha to us all.

Statement by JER, Carterton

 Please refer to all the information I have given for the other four charges I have bought against John Key, I do not have the resources or ability to reproduce everything for each charge.

Please ensure this charge goes through to the next level so I can prove and gather together the years of evidence I have that my standard of care was unprofessional and influenced by neo-liberal political theories rather than scientific fact.

I am feeling very unwell and would like the opportunity to present my evidence in the future, when hopefully I have the support of the health providers I know I am entitled to and the legal representation the Magna Carta guarantees me.

Kia kaha to us al

—————————————————————————————————————————-

19 June 2015

 Offence description:

 That John Key had legal duty to provide professional health care to me as a mentally injured disabled person and did not.  Also the standard of care did not follow international and professionally recognised models of treatment care and rehabilitation. 

 It was him as leader of National who coerced public servants and health professionals to discriminate and neglect those people who had mental health issues and were living in poverty.

—————————————————————————————————————————-

19 June 2015

 Statement by JER, Carterton

 The horrendous and unsafe situations I have been subjected to while supposedly disabled and under care of the NZ government are varied and across all sectors of welfare, health and justice.  This is why I consider John Key, the Prime Minister as ultimately responsible.  It is his power and influence that has created this gross miscarriage of justice against abused and traumatised people who become dysfunctional and suicidal – due to neglect and lack of professional health care.

 Please refer to the photographs and book of poetry I have submitted under Crimes of Torture as being part of this charge.  I do not have the resources or ability to replicate this information for all five charges.  Please refer to all information I have supplied during these five charges.

 Please give me the opportunity to find justice by allowing this charge to progress – of not providing the necessaries of life and to protect from further injury.  To disclose this now would cause me considerable harm – nothing less than any violently raped or abused person would experience when challenging their abuser.

 Please get me a lawyer and refer to my rap song Wherefore Art Thou ACC about how I have won two other cases in the Environment Court and Employment court representing myself/my business (as president of Capital Offroaders and owner of Enzo’s Pizza).  It is obvious I was capable of presenting myself then, but am not now – which was caused by my disability and mental health issues.

 When the person who raped you is found not guilty by a jury of nine white haired old men, one old woman and one woman who looked intellectually handicapped, even when admitted he was asleep and had plied you with alcohol before he did it – it degrades and destroys you in ways you cannot even imagine.

 Kia kaha to us all

————————————————————————————————————————-

19 June 2015

 Offence Description

 That John Key failed to provide necessaries and protect from injury a recognised sick person.

 Especially with regard to accommodation, provision of professional health services and protection from further injury after a series of unsafe living situations.  

—————————————————————————————————————————

Offence Description – Crimes of Torture Act 1989 – Section 3

 That John Key as Prime Minister of New Zealand has committed acts of torture against disabled abused mentally injured and mentally ill people like myself by not providing professional treatment, care and rehabilitation as required under New Zealand’s ACC, health, disability, criminal, human rights and bill of rights laws.

 This particularly refers to those people removed from ACC care in 2009 (of which I was one) as a result of government pressure and the appointment of John Judge a well known proponent of neo-liberalism and member of the Business Round Table and NZ Initiative group.  They did not change the law and caused harm to hundreds of people on ACC.

 These acts of torture also were perpetrated by the Ministry of Social Development and the ongoing ‘reforms’ aimed at disabled poor people on welfare.

—————————————————————————————————————————-

JOHN KEY AND THE NZ JUDICIARY DO CONDONE VIOLENCE!

I have been told repeatedly by Legal Services Agency I am can get legal aid but am told by hundreds of lawyers I have rung that there is nobody doing civil legal aid currently.  When I challenged the Ministry of Justice about this through email they stopped replying to me, when I went into their office at the High Court I was told there was nothing they could do and was trespassed when I started singing and reciting poetry about this gross miscarriage of justice.

Then when I went back to try and watch Tony Ellis take a case of torture against the Attorney General and 3 DHBs – so I would know how to do the case myself - I was assaulted by security (which I made a complaint to police about) and refused entry.

Now I’m in court for using chalk pen to draw a swastika on the High Court and breach of trespass.  Also for chalking a swastika and LIES etc on Appeal Court building that has words all around it talking about human rights and justice.

Sadly NZ media know all of this and so do several MPs but they do nothing.
