New Zealand (NZ) is an island state next to Australia which "has become a preferred bolthole for the ultra rich".[1][2] Its position in the far southern hemisphere renders it less vulnerable to, for example, radioactive pollution released in the northern hemisphere.

History

Norman Kirk, a NZ Prime minister in the early 1970s died suddenly after moving against the interests of the US deep state.


Policies

Lying about Mass Surveillance

In 2013 Prime Minister John Key promised expressly that if the Government Communications Security Bureau were found to have conducted mass surveillance, he would resign, together with GCSB chief, Ian Fletcher.[3] In 2015, following revelations by Edward Snowden, Nicky Hager proved that GCSB does carry out such surveillance. Indeed, former GCSB chief, Bruce Ferguson, admitted as much. John Key ignored his vow and did not resign.[4][5]

"Anti-Terrorism:

In 2002. New Zealand introduced the Terrorism Suppression Act, which remained unused until 2019.[citation needed]

Citizenship

Peter Thiel, the Paypal billionaire, was granted NZ citizenship after making a donation to the Christchurch earthquake appeal, sparking a "passport-for-sale" row.[1]

Drug adverts

As of December 2017, New Zealand was the only country apart from the United States that allowed prescription drug companies to advertise on television.[7]

Events

Trans-Pacific Strategic Economic Partnership Agreement

New Zealand was a signatory to the "Trans-Pacific Strategic Economic Partnership Agreement", a treaty to abrogate state power by elevating the rights of corporations. A poll conducted in December 2012 showed that 64% of New Zealanders thought trade agreements, such as the TPP, which allow corporations to sue governments, should be rejected.[8]

Christchurch Mass Shooting

Full article: Christchurch Mass Shooting

In March 2019, a mass shooting happened in Christchurch. It was livestreamed onto the internet.[9] Four people were arrested. The New Zealand establishment deemed that video of the attack was "objectionable" and so the New Zealand police warned that anyone sharing it could be liable for up to 10 years in jail.[10]
