Ministry of Health Wellington arrest for protesting about suicide

Guerrilla protest  mission MOH re suicide, got arrested

Guerrilla protest mission MOH re suicide, got arrested

Big day protesting in Wellington yesterday had been chickening out for weeks about doing it – but mental health was getting worse and worse I just had to let of steam about what Ministry of Health staff were doing.

Their refitted building now includes a fancy new café and security system to keep out us citizens.  Had a good audience for my rage, around 40 people around the foyer, it was lunchtime, about 12.45.  A small group of around 5 women tried to calm me down and did all the usual bullshit about having a cup of coffee.  I was  having none of that shit, I only got 10 mins before police arrive, so I’m as loud as I can be.  Wanted the police arrive to me singing and they did – Human Sewage.

I bollocked the fuck out of everybody there, called them murderers, told them they were killing my kids friends – driving them to suicide.  Screaming at them, hysterical, but the volcano had to go off some time.  I’m just speaking for me and all those I know who are unnecessarily suffering in this neo-liberal shit hole.  I talked about all the people I know who have committed suicide.

The looks on their faces was one of either guilt or complete refusal to take any responsibility for suicide and abusive mental health services.

Refused to leave the building, refused to stop yelling at them about why I was there so was arrested for Disorderly Behaviour, appropriate considering I have a stress Disorder.  Was best out of there anyway, I wouldn’t have stopped and the swearing wouldn’t have either.  Police were nice – two of them I already knew – I have am definitely infamous in Wellington for protesting.

Didn’t’ have to spend any time in the cells, was out of police custody within an hour.  Cried from when I was put in the police car, snot everywhere, was revolting.  Officer told me it is now a requirement to have handcuffs – just like America (were his words, he was an old cop, he knew it was shit for someone like me and completely unnecessary.

Got really upset several times, started ticking and rocking, backed up into the corner, when they asked questions about my doctor – when I don’t have one and the last one I had didn’t believe a thing I said.  Told them I had Complex PTSD, Sgt was bit of a jerk, telling me not to go back there or do anything else that had police called or I would spend night in the cells – WHICH I HATE – and is an illegal threat – given I hadn’t broken the law under Bill of Rights.

Gotta have a laugh with them though, threw all the laws I know at him, not me who’s the criminal – they should be charging the people at Min of Health and ACC that were denying me care I was entitled to.  Told him to charge them under Sections 150A 151 155 157 of the Crimes Act.  He ignored me of course.  They know I’m right that’s why they’re nice to me and let me go.

Left, had a cup of tea at Library Café next door and went off chalking and to meet up with a friend.  Chalked my poem MOH at Maui’s Garden and a good quote about poverty being a crime.

Was interesting watch police dealing with me, obviously there has been a bit of a discussion about how to legally.  Only got the Pre Charge Warning and let go – under Disorderly Behaviour, Sgt repeated several times it was not to be under Wilful Trespass (which I am up on charges of).  Was also issued two more trespass notices from Ombudsman and Human Rights Commission – WTF – they’re not allowed to use Trespass law to stop me protesting.  I was reading the judgement by J Williams.

Apparently I’m trespassed from about 15 different places LOL – all places who are supposed to legally help me and don’t, or who have made public comments about poor people etc.  So much for freedom of speech in New Zealand – if artists are being arrested you know things are bad.

Big shout out to Wellington Police – no comparison to the several violent arseholes that work in the Wairarapa.  I mentioned that to the officers who arrested me, a woman and man (the woman had arrested me before, I remember her).  They were nice and agreed not all officers are good people, I told them Q Hoera was a violent arsehole.

Told the Sgt wouldn’t be long and there would be 100 people like me occupying and protesting in government and justice buildings.  He didn’t look happy, I said he should be cause I was a non-violent activist who respected police that respected me and my rights to be angry about what was happening to so many.

Going to be making a legal complaint about the number of trespass notices when its a violation of my civil and political rights.  Non-violent protest, even if it is offensive (eg swearing) is a right I have under Civil Society Activism.  If I can’t get my justice issues in front of a judge, as required under Magna Carta, then I HAVE EVERY RIGHT to speak truth to power of those hurting me – AS OFTEN AS I CHOOSE TO – without threat of intimidation.

 

Bob Jones sends police to intimidate disabled artist

Protest at Jones building, beggar in plastic bag

Protest at Jones building, beggar in plastic bag

So for sending the following letter and putting up this piece of art outside Bob Jones office I get a police visit with wilful trespass notice to my home to humiliate me.  Same Bob Jones who recently signed a public letter of NZ leaders demanding the right to freedom of speech – which appears he only wants applied to himself for saying hideously immoral and ignorant things about poorest disabled NZers – not to poor disabled artists and Civil Society Actors who challenge him.

http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/politics/91132233/prominent-kiwis-pen-open-letter-saying-free-speech-is-under-threat-in-nz-universities

Considering police are not allowed at my home according to Inspector Donna Coward as she knows all the visits last year had completely terrorised me and due to my stress disorder I shook for 2 hours after they were here.  Was disturbed by the fact he had more power than Inspector Coward on this occasion.  Will take great pleasure in doing several more of these artworks with his face on and putting them around other places in Wellington.  Sent him a photo of the picture, just so he knows what it looks like.  Will be sending a link to this website about what Jones did to all the other NZers who signed the letter – just so they know what he did.

He knows I’m poor so threatens me with a $2000 fine – as I had no intention of going to his office and would rather put another of these artworks at a different, much more public location, he hasn’t achieved the level of intimidation and oppression he had hoped for.  He has however proven he is weak, arrogant and an oppressor of freedom of speech of the most vulnerable he chooses to publicly denigrate.

Below is letter I hand delivered after reading this shitty news article   http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=11783845

 Dear Mr Jones,

 I was extremely shocked about your recent comments regarding beggars being criminalised.  You don’t appear to understand the situation for these people and an intelligent man should not cherish ignorance when dealing with such an important issue in such a public way.

 Did you realise that all of these people are disabled and cannot get reliable work because of their impairments – or safe/stable homes to live in?  In a radicalised capitalist society people who cannot work at maximum capacity are not employed or have intermittent employment which mostly pays minimum wage.  Many of these people are intelligent, unlike what you believe, meet me and you will find out, because I am one of them. 

 Do you accept there are disabled people in New Zealand?  Do you believe these people are receiving professional treatment care rehabilitation and welfare so they can live with dignity and do valuable work – I can assure you they are not. 

 I know too much about this subject to put it in this letter, what I do ask is an opportunity to discuss what I know – especially in the area of mental health – where extensive professional rehabilitation/care is not happening due to government corruption.  I haven’t met a street person yet who doesn’t have a history of abuse and I am yet to meet someone on long term unemployment that doesn’t have a disability or is caring for someone with one.  Also never met a disabled person who doesn’t want a decent job they capable of doing either. 

 I think you would find more interesting and challenging conversation if you interacted with some people outside your usual circles. In one of my politics lectures at Victoria 2002 (you were a guest speaker) you bemoaned the fact, that parties you attended with politicians and media had become very boring- I could never be accused of being boring, uninformed & not having a broad perspective. 

 I am assuming you believe in word of law and if people are entitled to care under ACC, mental health & welfare laws then they should be receiving it, especially if this care got them back to work & off the streets.

 You can see more about the laws being violated, solutions that should be in place (please refer to my rehabilitation model Fence At The Top Of The Cliff) and my own situation on my website www.jrmurphypoet.com – or twitter @jrmurphypoetry – I am also on facebook and youtube.  My phone number is 027 3040!!!.  I work full time as a Civil Society Activist in the area of mental health because of my desperation to return to work.  I don’t watch movies or read books all day and I don’t do drugs or drink to cope with the boredom, discrimination and persecution.

 I look forward to your reply and intend to start art installations outside your building about this issue if I don’t hear from you.

 Sincerely

Graffiti artist – REFUSE – New Zealand

Inspired by the Graffiti art exhibition in Tauranga and the BANKSY works I’ve been turning my poetry and words into pieces of visual art.  Chose the name ReFuse as my tag name, I like the multiple meanings.  Photos on my facebook page www.facebook.com/jrmurphypoetmusician and twitter @jrmurphypoetry

Today I’m off to Wellington for a bit of guerrilla activism and a cap I pimped with graffiti, going to leave it somewhere interesting, take photos and post tonight.

Health & Disability Commission – Terrorists of NZs disabled poor

Am currently formally retrieving information from multiple agencies for my upcoming court case, those who have refused to resolve or do anything about government health agencies refusing me professional treatment and rehabilitation or ensuring necessaries of life – ie a safe stable home to live in.

Thought I’d post the email I sent them today – HDC have already tried once to not provide the information by saying I hadn’t explained myself clearly – which I had.  Its one of the techniques they use to stop disabled people from progressing serious complaints – so watch out if you do use HDC, they will do anything they can to stop the process and make you feel stupid.

Dear Ms Do,

Due to impairments related to my disorder I cannot go over the years of rejections Health & Disability Commission subjected me to, when I knew my rights, was being persecuted and denied professional health and rehabilitation models/services by multiple agencies.  However can I please have a letter from the Commissioner stating which organisations I complained about on what dates and that NONE of my complaints were ever resolved.

My HDC advocate from Nationwide HDS is sending me everything she did over the past decade to try and get me professional services without success and it will advance my legal case to have Health and Disability Commission confirm they refused to believe any of my valid and serious complaints even when Nationwide were unable to resolve them and was fully supportive of how badly I was being treated – but could do nothing without your backup.

I am also getting complaints I made to Human Right Commission, Tribunal, ACC, Salvation Army, Oasis Network, King Street Artworks, Wairarapa DHB, Ombudsman and Auditor-General that failed to uphold my rights or accept what was happening to me was a criminal violation of my human rights to professional health care.

It makes me unwell when I think those health care agencies supposed to help me persecute me instead and deny me care I am entitled to under law – but it makes me even more unwell when I know how corrupt cruel immoral and criminally negligent those who supposed to protect me from this are.  All those poor disabled abuse victims and mentally ill people in this country you are torturing (as defined by the Torture Suppression Act), who are living in misery, draining or harming those around them who also can’t cope, killing themselves or killing others – that is your fault, you people are murderers, cruel violent murderers.

My latest formal complaint is to the Privacy Commissioner, a second one about a mental health advocacy worker from Oasis.  Who told a woman I have just got to know that she couldn’t help me I was too unwell – I only wanted two things, for her to talk to police and get them to backoff (this was when things were bad and I was having nightmares they were coming to get me), she told me I should stop protesting/exercising my rights if I wanted this.  I also asked her to find and arrange for me to learn Maori weaving and Tukutuku and it ended up with her abusing me saying I was demanding too much of her.  The first complaint I made about her last year for violating my privacy and going to DHB mental health services when she said she wouldn’t and knew how I felt about them – she did and responded to me with an abusive text – was discredited and unresolved by Oasis etc.

You must know how many people like me you are rejecting (cause I hear horror story after horror story about dealings with your agency – everybody I know has given up and stopped making complaints of harm) how can you sleep at night knowing the suffering and death you cause in our society?

Sincerely

JR

Dear Ms Do,

Don’t know how I could be clearer on this matter, are you trying to avoid sending it – do you hope, due to my disability, that I won’t pursue this because that is the usual behaviour I get from agencies trying to hide something horrendous they have done to disabled people.

I want every piece of information and every complaint I have sent to your organisation since 2002, since I was raped and discovered ACC and the NZ government were persecuting and discriminating against mentally injured abused men women and children disabled by their abuse – along with every mentally ill person in New Zealand.  Denying them professional care, professional health and rehabilitation models, ensuring they became more unwell so drug companies could make more money and driving many to crime so they filled up the justice system.

One day the world is going to know what you people have done condoning this violent, torture, persecution of NZs most vulnerable people on the order of radicalised neo-liberal terrorists.
