Here is one of this country’s best and bravest environmentalists admitting that his advocacy and the science behind his advocacy has been threatened…
“I’ve been openly told, don’t bother applying for this, cos you won’t get it.” Mike Joy, semi-finalist for New Zealander of the Year, says his advocacy work has come at a professional cost
…how sick that one of the best environmental scientists can be punished this way in NZ?
This despicable piece of propaganda by corporate farming thug Doug Edmeades on stuff.co.nz reminds everyone that Fairfax is on the side of the corporations, not on the side of the people.
A scientist like Mike Joy who has had the courage to challenge the corporate farming pollution of our water doesn’t deserve to be defamed and attacked in this manner, especially when it’s by an industry shill like Edmeades.
This is nothing short of a character assassination and a reminder that Fairfax is there for corporate interests. The Dairy Industry has gone from being an abuser of our environment into being an abuser of science, we just can’t let these sanctimonious pricks get away with this and environmentalists like Joy need to know we have their back.
