Why is there graffiti about police violence against women in Wairarapa

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Kia kaha and aroha to us all.

Seamus Boyer Blow Fly Editor Wairarapa News condoning violence against women

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Why Am I Arrested – poem dedicated to Times-Age, Masterton

Times Age Why Am I Arrested

WHY AM I ARRESTED

Why am I arrested for being disabled
Why am I ignored when my injury is clear
Why am I censored for fighting back with my art
Why am I cut off from life saving care

Who decided arrested was right
Who decided ignorance was fair
Who decided my art required censorship
Who decided this pain I could bear

What right do they have to discriminate
What truth do they have to fear
What right do they have to neglect
What truth do they not want to hear

When will I be normal again
When will mental health take due care
When will I be allowed to exhibit
When will my people hear

How has this become so twisted
How do I bring justice to bear
How do I hold those hypocrites to account
How do I cope through my fears
How do I cope through my tears
How do I cope through my fears

EnD

After not publishing anything about my appearance in court for being trespassed/arrested and protesting at the hospital about mental health services, I wanted to prove just how biased, ignorant and unprofessional the Wairarapa Times Age really is.  Was outside doing this chalking for over 30 minutes and nobody came out – had people talking to me, two council people gave me a hard time – and I gave it right back.  Told them I was allowed online casino to do this under the Bill of Rights in a free country and I had already talked to the council about not taking it off, the woman kept asking who I talked to.  I asked them what they were afraid of.

When I started talking about people dying, suffering, committing suicide, living in poverty, with unstable housing and not enough to eat, the woman told me this was nothing to do with that – I MADE SURE SHE KNEW IT DEFINITELY WAS.  I got upset, but never got off my knees to stop chalking.  The guy got it, he got the dreadful woman away before she got me even more upset and into the nitty gritty of why I was there.  Went past about an hour later and it was still there, so hopefully they”ve decided to leave it.

Had a friend supporting me, which was good for a change.  After I chalked it felt like I needed to do more so started singing it, full voice towards the Times Age.  Heaps of cars around the whole time, people seeing what was going on – bet you they will be looking to see if it is in the paper – bet you it won”t be.

This is not considered a news item in a town like Masterton – when a local activist chalks poetry on the footpath about being arrested and having her art censored, when she talks about appauling and abusive mental health services.  I might make a complaint to the Press Council, just cause I can – it won”t work, but it might make these bigots think about what they are doing.

I hope lots of Wairarapa people read this – people have got to stop ignoring this gross miscarriage of justice and censoring what I am doing and saying about it.

Times-Age is neo-liberal and relies on National party voting farmers and business people to keep going – there is no way they are going to upset them by telling them the truth.  I am ashamed and disgusted in the community I come from.
