To have the most powerful spy agency in the country pimping their spying services directly to Minister’s under the guise of ‘economic benefit’ and then have no paper trail explaining what the hell happened is utterly unacceptable, yet this story has been eclipsed by a backbencher taping a staff member!Read More →
The truth is that the 5 Eyes spooks meet in NZ quite regularly and the surprise by the corporate media is more due to the lack of institutional knowledge now inside these news organisations.Read More →
Shocking new revelations about CIA breaking 1951 Union Waterfront lock out – so why are we ramming through a new Intelligence and Security Bill for America?
…so the bloody CIA intervened directly in our domestic affairs to break an Industrial dispute that was caused by a Government intent on damaging the Unions.

Dear NZers – when Key was in power you didn’t care about 5 Eyes and allowed him to get away with mass surveillance – how do you feel about Trump having that power now?
Now our anti-intellectual messiah has gone, are New Zealanders really that bewilderingly dense to allow Trump to have this level of power over our economic, cultural and political sovereignty?Read More →

When New Zealand amended the Security Intelligence Service (SIS) Act in 1996, it was the first significant change in almost 20 years. The 20 years since that amendment have seen a constant stream of law changes extending the powers of the country’s spies. The Intelligence and Security Bill currently before Parliament is the latest of these.

MUST READ: Dear New Zealanders – Do you have any idea what the bloody hell the NZ Security and Intelligence Bill does?
As more and more NZers suddenly wake up to this appalling legislation and its ramifications – people are going to be outraged.
Outraged that they didn’t know this bloody thing was even happening.
