New Punk Song – Handcuffs Are Not a Weapon – New Zealand police!

Handcuffs are not a weapon
Police are not there to harm
Freedom of speech is a right under law
Cruel cops now the Devil’s right arm

Poverty’s the worst form of violence
Begging degrades and does harm
Homes, jobs and care are rights under law
Charities now the Devil’s left arm

Suicide prevention’s promotion
Now killing good people’s a job
Media and money controls everything
Devil’s got the minds of this mob

New Zealand is not a democracy
Rule of law protects only the rich
Judges and lawyers are unjust and cruel
Devil’s got them as his bitch

 

Just wrote suicide prevention verse, wrote the others over past few months, knew there was one more to be written.  Each of the verses a separate poem in its own right.  Put together with my punk riff, metal pedal – Am, open string, G, open string –  its a wicked song I love singing and all of it true.  can’t wait to perform it outside court house.

More Propaganda from the Suicide Show – The Project

The following news item might be good advice for middle class and wealthy people who don’t really have many problems compared with the poorest in our society.  Particularly the 20% of the people that experience 80% of the crime according to police statistics – I’m in that ‘cultural’ group.  A string of mentally unwell flatmates has seen to that.  I have a song called Human Sewage, check out my Youtube Channel its on there.

I’m also contributing to crime according to police – through my non-violent challenging activism.  I am challenging unjust authority within my rights to freedom of expression under International and NZ Constitutional laws.  I follow the guidelines of the UN Charter for a Civil Society and a Civil Society Actor/Activist.

I would be out on the streets with my signs, guitar and chalk much more, but I am getting over a recent violent assault with handcuffs and have a lot of fear.  They permanently damaged my right wrist and it would be extremely painful to be in handcuffs again – although I still have my wrist brace and will wear that on any future protest.

Below is the news item that set this post off, I am tired of this, when the most unwell people don’t even have safe places to live or necessities of life.

#metoo lawyers from New Zealand, this is my legal situation

I am currently up on charges of wilful damage for throwing red paint on the white ribbon banner inside Masterton police station and leaving a piece of art on the counter.  I also went outside and did a chalk spray swastika on the wall.

I then drove to Lower Hutt and chalked on Lower Hutt Court house Judge PJ Butler and a swastika.  I left there unchallenged and went to Wellington Central police station and handed myself in at the counter.

I was protesting about the miscarriage and perversion of justice for the recent graffiti charges I had been facing – other charges had been removed.  ACC demanded their misuse of a telephone charges be removed, so the judge didn’t know my motivation behind other non-violent protests with chalk, I have done.  All in regard to my health care and access to a suitably qualified lawyer.

Police in Wellington are way nicer and more respectful, I have made multiple complaints about  unnecessary violence and threats of worse violence by some Wairarapa police, all have been ignored.  This was at the end of January 2018, I have been unable to get a lawyer and been manipluated and discriminated against by Legal Aid Services.  I was in court last week and the judge ordered I be given a Amacus Curiea lawyer, or some shit, they going to get back to me about it.

Far as I can see its a lawyer that won’t listen to what you have to say and will just get the case through the courts as fast as possible.  So far I’ve been told they don’t want to deal with my other legal issues, but my protesting is part of all that.

I need to get with some decent legal brains and work out how I am going to get my case moved out of the District Court, into the High Court.   (NOTE:  My case last year for graffiti has grounds to be appealed, and that would reinvestigate the violent assault by police and other threats.) And I demand a JURY TRIAL due to the constitutional nature of my case.

There is no jury in New Zealand would find me guilty of wilful damage when they consider why I did it.  They have the power to give the Bill of Rights more power.   I DO NOT WANT A JUDGE ALONE TRIAL!!!!!  Our judiciary are grossly corrupt with regards to people with mental health issues, especially as a result/or aggrivated by degrading soul destroying poverty.

Is there any lawyer out there or law student that would be interested in talking this through with me?   I know they will say my wilfil damage charge is too minor to warrant a jury trial – how do I use the law to refute that.  What is the law that says I have to have a judge alone trial.

Come on, there must be someone out there that’s interested in the constitutional issues I am grappling with here.  I do not believe our Bill of Rights to be as impotent as they are saying, I want to take a case to court where these laws are given the constitutional status they should have.

I belive the fact I am a poor person, with the issues around health care, disability, non-violent activism and legal representation, gives me the right to take this case.  And brings up legal issues that really need to be sorted out, or we cannot call our country a democracy, free, or one that adheres to Rule of Law – which was of course designed to keep the peace.

I also have other legal issues I wish to challenge in the ILLEGAL gentrification of Carterton.  The driving out of the poor and disabled by wealthy foreigners and city people.  With a Libertarian and conservative elitist agenda in power throughout our local and central government representatives – who I believe only represent business interests.

I want to use Imperial Laws Application Act 1988 – Westminister STatute the 1st – common right be done to all rich as poor.

It is not right that rich people get to live in a town and poor people do not.  Carterton once had at least 35 state houses, mostly three bedroom with decent yards to grow food etc.  They were all sold off and an Official Information Act request revealed the details and numbers of these homes were removed from public record – which I thought was illegal.  I have been around Carterton and counted them, given state houses were of a distinctive style.

It is not right disabled people who have chosen Carterton as their home do not have the opportunity to live here.  Many to be around family and friends for support.

These are also our cultural rights, no matter anybody says – we have a culture.  New Zealand has ratified the UN treaty on economic social and cultural rights, which should be used in this legal issue of ‘gentrification’.  I know it is happening in America and UK, however I believe our 200 year old European history proves we prefer a more egalitarian society and we do not like injustice.  As a society we care for the less fortunate, when we do that we have peace, now we don’t do that we have suffering, violence, addiction and suicide.  Note I do not consider charity as care, it is a degrading nightmare and there are many highly corrupt institutions – Trust House in Wairarapa is one of the worst examples.

I also have legal issues under Magna Carta as to be destroyed, by being denied health care a court ordered to be provided eight years ago.  Along with not having a suitably qualified lawyer for the past 15 years, being denied legal representation for 16 years, just for asking for the health care and justice I was legally entitled to under multiple laws.

I have multiple legal issues with Indepedent Police Conduct Authority, Wairarapa and CCDHBs, Health and Disability Commissioner, Human Rights Commission etc.  Privacy issues the Commissioner refuses to address because of my disability, apparently police are allowed to say anything derogatory about you to other police and security staff who transport you between courts.

I have Magna Carta issues with police coming to my home so many times, I was terrorised.  They came once very late at night for a welfare check, I started having nightmares after that.  Now I just get scared whenever someone knocks at my door or I hear noises outside after dark – that police are coming to get me.

Several officers have said they don’t like what is happening to me.  One of them is my neighbour.

I have $10,000 Independence Allowance sitting with ACC because I can’t fill out the forms and they want me to go to yet another assessment, which are now so traumatic, I become extremely unwell.  I am so broke, I can barely afford food and am so unwell cannot go to the food bank.  Or the doctor, I havn’t had a doctor for over two years and not spoken to one about health issues other than my mental health for many years.

There must be people in our country or the western world who can help me with this, make this happen to stop the divisions in society we are seeing and the damage that is doing to peace on this planet.

Kia kaha and aroha to us all, leave a comment, lets work out how to do this.

 

Foodstuffs supports gentrification & impoverishment of poorest in Carterton

Recently I had the most horrendous and humiliating experience in the local Carterton New World supermarket.  After reading Jacinda Arderns comments about regulating the food industry that were price gouging us I felt the need to share what happened as I am sure it proves it.  Also proves a violation of Westminister Statute the 1st – common right be done to all rich as poor.

My poor disabled friends and I have been noticing changes at the Carterton New World over the past few months, they are slowly getting rid of the cheapest products .  That includes basics like Weetbix – or the cheap equivalent and in my case the cheapest sanitary napkins.  I have bladder incontenance and the products I used – which were still dearer than other supermarkets – just stopped being stocked.  I asked about it but they were never reinstated.

Carterton is one of those small towns – travelling distance of the city – that has sold off its homes to wealthy foreigners and cashed up city people.  Disabled and poor that made Carterton their home, or have lived here for many years are being driven out.  It is a well known phenomina in UK and USA, in New Zealand people are so naive or cruel they refuse to accept it is happening to their neighbours and family members.  They also refuse to accept it is actually illegal – nobody wants to accept that, especially the wealthy leaders of our community/region.

The council and business people welcome these affluent happy people, they spend money.  They won’t even entertain the idea they are causing harm and gross violations of other people’s most basic rights in a democratic country that says it adheres to Word of Law and UN treaties.  For those of us rotting on welfare, denied prof health care, justice etc, we are forced to beg for food, housing and justice to charities.  Charities full of people who are only too happy to do it – they think it is their roll in life to hand out food to people the government deny these things to.  Try to criticise these people and you get insulted degraded and abused.

Those on the council driving poor from this community know the people who own the supermarket.  Foodstuffs and the owners will be basing their change in store and products sold to match the increasingly wealthy demographic of Carterton.  Poor people don’t spend much money, rich people do so they get more things they like.

Carterton has its $1 bread and milk on the other side of the supermarket from the front door, so poor people have to walk through the entire shop of things they are not allowed to buy just to get to these staples.  I cry when I go to the supermarket now, I have so little money and feel completely denigrated by the experience.  It confronts you with inequality.

So two weeks ago a friend texts me and says they have cold chickens for $4.99 at the supermarket again.  That is a lot of protein and very cheap, some of the chickens were Organic and down from $15.00 each.  I went down within half an hour, with less than only $30 in my account to get the much needed food and some other items.  I got two chickens, one for someone I know who has agrophobia, is disabled poor and I knew needed the food, like me too proud/humiliated to beg for food from the local food bank – or tell those around her who did have everything.

I went to pay and it was more than I expected, I was so humiliated I had to put things back.  I thought I had calculated in my head to be under the amount I had in the bank.  I started to cry quietly.  When I got out to the car I discovered they had charged me $15 for one of the cold chickens.  Obviously the scanner had picked up the previous full price bar code and not the one on the sticker that said $4.99.

I went back in the store to get the $10 I overpaid, the woman at the kiosk looked at the docket, looked at the two cold chickens in my trolly with their $4.99 stickers on and said she would go and sort it out.  I had started to cry and was about to have a serious panic attack, I handed the woman the receipts but I could not wait, I don’t like crying, ticking, shaking and curling up in a ball on the floor of a public place.  So I told her I could’t stay I wasn’t well and I would come back.  I ran out crying, people I know saw me.

I didn’t get back the next day I was too upset about what had happened, I was so humiliated.  When I did go back I phoned the supermarket first and spoke to the manager I think – I don’t know who that was.  Told him what happened and I was going to come back and get my money and some more items.  I did this because I know how unwell I get when I am humiliated because of my poverty like that.  I did it so there would be no fuss and everything would be sorted, I could get my things and leave without incident.

When I got there I believed everything was sorted but at the checkout I found out it wasn’t, this man started harrassing me and insinuating very strongly I was a liar about what had happened and a thief, I became extremely distressed – I have a stress disorder.  I tried to defend myself, the woman had thrown out the docket, she didn’t realise I was having a panic attack and had to leave and still wanted my money returned.  The manager on the phone didn’t understand the situation either – I don’t think he did anyway.  The man who challenged me at the checkout went on and on and on, he was insulting and rude and I told him that, I got louder and louder, so people could hear what he was doing to me.  Another staff member came up and tried to stop him as I became more and more traumatised and terrorised.  I wanted to run from the shop but I was desperately poor and needed the food.

I had the cheapest food in my trolley, that included pack of 4 chicken carcus for less than $3.00 I stuff and roast them – this man was accusing me of buying a $15 Organic chicken and lying about it, when I had to buy chicken carcus as my food.  He gave the impression I did this because I wanted what rich people ate ewwwwww.

Because of my disorder I am not able to beg to food banks for food, even my WINZ case manager offered me a food grant I refused because I couldn’t bring myself to be degraded in front of supermarket staff with that card.  These people are the community, they know who is poor and make their own judgements based on things they often do not understand.

The people who saw/heard what happened will now marginalise and discriminate against me even further because I was insulted and degraded like that – they will believe it is my fault and I am a thief and liar.  All the owner and Foodstuffs wanted to do was talk about it.  I already got my money back, the woman who took over from the revolting man insulting me gave it back, it was quite obvious I was telling the truth.  I have heard of other instances of people having to go back after being charged full price on specialed items at that store – and being argued with about it.

This hatred of poor people permeates EVERYTHING when you live in ‘relative poverty’ that rich people think is a pathetic joke – but I am sure it drives more people to suicide and violence than any other cause.

The reason we have laws, a democracy and supposed to follow rule of law is to stop those with power and money from persecuting those without.  That is human nature, however it is not what supposed to happen in a civil society!!!!!!!!!

Anybody out there reading this, can help me take a case against Carterton District Council, Foodstuffs and Carterton New World for violations of Westminister Statute the 1st.  It says on Foodstuffs website about CORPORATE RESPONSIBILITY – so obviously they are part of the oligarchy that knows it price gouges citizens when it can get away with it – profit is everything.

 

Tony Ellis Sitting In Your Palace

Just heard the story of another terrorised abuse victim and her experience with this misogynst, insulting, vicious, corrupt pig Tony Ellis – so thought I’d post this old poem of mine.

Tony Ellis sitting in your palace
Looking down your nose at me
Saying I’m not here for you peasants
While nothing for men I see

I only deal with important stuff
Violent abuse I’d rather not see
I havn’t got time, now get off my mind
Stories of intimidation, discrimination, bigotry

Tony Ellis sitting in your palace
Could you look me in the eye and say
I’m far to busy, its not important
Now please just go away

I’m trying to expose the truth
Don’t ignore this most serious crime
This crime against those abused
That affects society, the soul, the mind

Tony Ellis sitting in yuor palance
Watch my words upon the web
JR Murphy poet & artist
An activist you all dread

Please come down from your palace
Come visit me I”m real
An intelligent human being saying
Somethings wrong when care’s a torture wheel

enD

Been changing it as I rewrote it, might have another go at it later, now I know how corrupt Ellis and our justice system truly are, grrrrr.
