From Carol Sawyer

Author and conservationist, Graeme Sturgeon, was assaulted, his clothing ripped, his face left bloodied, and his car doorhandle broken, by DoC employees on 17 October 2017.

“…the driver’s door was opened, he was hauled out, and punched in the face by a DOC contractor, Mr X, without warning or explanation.”

Shocking on so many fronts.. A case of give them enough rope... I do so hope this achieves national and international attention.

"The suddeness of the DoC beating beggared belief, until I reflected that they had been caught red-handed in an illicit operation. Diana Halstead’s headlights had shone onto the campervan and she had witnessed the beating.
I realised with a shock that we were at the back of the DoC office newly adopted for the 2017 aerial 1080 operations. I had previously parked here and knew that the trucks occupied an area marked with white lines for public parking.Why were DoC staff loading the trucks in the public car park? I was confounded, but I didn’t have time to reflect."

Appalled and if heads don't roll over this one...

Yes one wonders, will they roll Rose? Carol's posted other images of their guards in flak jackets all decked out like the military. The fascism is growing at a fast rate by the looks. 

From the other witness's statement ... (article updated) "The three of us decided we would wait for the police. Graeme S rang Whitianga Police Station and was connected to Hamilton and after an hour or so a policeman arrived, but he went straight to talk to the DOC office staff inside the building. We continued to stand in the cold night air. We could hear DOC staff laughing during their police interview. No medical attention was offered to Graeme S even though DOC staff would have had a First Aid
medical kit and a cup of tea in their office."

Not holding my breath about justice being done. No surprizes there.

further: NO POLICE INCIDENT REPORT HAS BEEN FILED !

Disgusted!

Ralph - you had a wonderful reply here - just wondering where it has gone...?

I deleted because had not read the link. The link did fill in gaps of the my bad variety.  Can recapitulate. Part of the problem is that this addresses CT and not the parties involved. Investigating "taking on" this sort of crime and the assholes that facilitate it is risky. I applaud their efforts. Why is it that this seems populated by old farts?
Where is the youth of NZ on this issue. They are the ones who will suffer in the future. Has anyone contacted universities, etc.? It seems the issue is languishing due to poor public exposure and organized resistance.

Where are other environmental groups and legal aid with a consolidated strategy. I say sue the bastards. Make it uncomfortable for minions and spotlight orchestrators. This appears to have gone on for long enough. The evidence is clear. If one human is harmed it is enough. The harm to wildlife is silent.

I see also many young people onto this issue. It's also the one issue I find on my own site that gets literally thousands of views as opposed to  a handful for most other issues. Same feedback from others on FB (like Carol, author of the two articles I've posted above there) ... 15K on the Whitianga storage info. I suppose this is why they are getting so fascist about it. They have plenty of opposition. And of course, painting the activists out to be violent thugs.

So the paints on them now, fully coloured thugs, hope it sticks.

Its a lot of money going into these operations and seriously "cowboy" to have such inappropriate storage  and out of control management. 

Truth Sarah but look at the Police response. Hadn't filed the report & said they suppose they hadn't got around to it. Laughing with the DoC staff even. We can see who they're batting for. I just don't trust the justice system any more. It's shot full of holes. Corrupt as. 

Just a thought President GNNA ... from what I've seen in following this issue, one death isn't enough actually. A man who did die of it the authorities refuse to acknowledge. Then there was the young woman who probably died of it her doc believes & asked for testing of her heart which the NZ lab LOST., conveniently. The same doc did a submission to the authorities (enviro) & no go. Was told about the woman's heart, the matter's closed. Now recently I read a long post (if find it will post it here) on people who organized themselves at obviously great cost to take the matter of 1080 & the evidence to court thru all the right channels and now have a bill handed down to them by the court system of some $70K. This entrenchment of 1080 use is not for lack of trying with the activists I'm sure. From what I'm seeing anyway. NZ govt factory now produces all of what NZ uses. 

I will share this at Uncensored today. Should be spread as widely as possible as there's nary a whimper from the MSM on this. Disgusting.
