I have some sad news to share for those of you that followed the NZ blog 'Aoteoroa, A Wider Perspective' (many here). Evelien Gilbert passed away last night after a brief but painful battle with liver cancer. I'm sorry to be sharing this on line. It seems so impersonal however knowing Ev, she would likely approve.
This is Ev's last words on her own health, just one month before her passing. We spoke to her the night before her birthday and she was in fine spirits, looking forward to having her friends over for her 60th Birthday. The post was made two days prior.
Ev was a WARRIOR, she DID take prisoners and suffered no fools. John Key was exposed by Ev, for his actions during his banking career, long before NZ voted him in to lead our now 'sold to his rich buddies' country.
Evelien Gilbert-deLaff had a brilliant mind, guts and left no stone unturned. She balanced her life and political interests & several blogs, art including embroidery and jewellery making, composing music, self sufficiency/food and food storage. Her two horses were her joy.
Ev gave us the recipe that has saved the leg of a horse we are currently treating. The vet said she would only visit again to put the horse down... Ev bought her back from the brink with her wonderful knowledge of natural remedies. Today the horse has a new leg and is a box of birds.
My daughter is currently in Hamilton and was intending to visit Evelien tomorrow on our behalf after we were informed last week that Ev was in Waikato Hospital as Ev was a rock through my own illness.
Love and ALWAYS respect to you viking woman. The movement has lost another great mind but your words will echo for as long as there is digital media.
Peter, you are in our thoughts and prayers.
Here is one of Ev's interviews with Jim Fetzer back in 2012
Vinny Eastwood has put together 40 links for show that Ev has appeared in.
