The audacity of Key lying repeatedly about the TPPA has led to a building fury.
The lie that this forced trade deal which signs away our sovereignty would be debated in Parliament is shown up for the falsehood it is when it was revealed that Key intended to sign the deal before Parliament even opened.
The lie that this won’t impact Maori Treaty rights or our ability to pass environmental laws has been shown up by new papers released this week and the entire economic case for the deal has been blown wide open by research released today.
By signing it a mere 2 days before Waitangi Day is almost attempting to create disorder.
Now we find out that the NZ Police are training their staff to
start police a riot…
TPP: Police undertake riot training
New Zealand Police have been undertaking mass riot training ahead of the signing of the Trans-Pacific Partnership in Auckland next month.
The trade agreement, that has sparked widespread controversy due to its closed-door negotiations, will be signed by international diplomats on February 4.
Dozens of large-scale protests have been held across the country as the five years of negotiations for the deal came to a close in the US last year.
The Herald understands that increased riot training – officially known as public order training – has been taking place ahead of the signing, as police prepare for more possible civil unrest.
…Muldoon green lighted the Springbok tour in part to divide the country and harden his support base, by agreeing to a signing 2 days before Waitangi Day, Key is playing the same divide and rule politics.
If the Police are actively training for a riot, then they are planning to manufacture one. Everyone going on the 4th must take their cellphones and record Police actions so we can hold the buggers to account. It would not be the first time a National Party Prime Minister used the Police to beat protesters and activists and if they do, we should be prepared to publicise that around the world.
We will not be intimidated. We will not back down. We will not allow Key and his corporate overlords sign away our democracy.
