Update, 12 Jan: We have raised $60 so far, which is enough to cover our domain registration and hosting for the year. Thank you very much indeed to the three kind souls who put their plastic down :-)

    Likewise, I have just made a donation (I think the campaign is great) but am confused at who the organsiation behind this is – my receipt was to Nextone Media Ltd. Please use the same transparency that you are encouraging of the govt by explaining the details behind the campaign so people are informed before they donate. Cheers.

    • Hi B, we were a little confused because it wasn’t to us, so we checked out the company – they run the petition website where the Food Bill is being campaigned against. They run petition sites for heaps of countries in fact – nice business model. Anyway, nothing to do with us – we also didn’t set up the petition, though we are quoted in it, which is good… but petitions have no force re legislation, especially without signatures. That said, it has been good for awareness and to gauge public concern. Bit of a red herring though.

      Something that is important to note re the legislature and petitions – parliament, which calls itself the “house of representatives”… well after we vote its members in, they swear an oath to serve the queen, not the people. This is why petitions don’t work. They represent the Queen. Which ironically in the case of NZ is now a corporation representing the Queen’s interests here – see http://www.secinfo.com/$/SEC/Registrant.asp?CIK=216105 and http://www.legislation.govt.nz/act/public/1986/0124/latest/DLM97382.html, where Ministers are clearly Officers of this corporation – conmpany AKA board members. Folks outside cabinet don’t realise this – ie most MPs. Cabinet is the commercial inner circle.

      Course the Queen herself is probably the biggest shareholder, or the Crown in England… shell companies inside shell companies, no doubt, but making the usual suspects obscenely rich. Oh yes, and the Securities mentioned – they are Govt-grabbed resources (can you say “Mining”?) and people… who are tradeable commodities based upon average future economic output and tax revenue. Welcome to bondage (personal security)…

      Finally, who are we? We protect our identity in order not to give uninformed programmed trolls sitting ducks to level easy shots at. We’re not so much concerned about commercial interests that would stamp out dissent… more about the pigs one might throw pearls before, only to have them turn on ya. In a nutshell, we’re the future generations that cannot yet speak for themselves. So there you go ;-)

      Save seeds. Kia ora :-)

    Hi there,

    I’d like to know how I can become involved in campaigning for this cause?

    Thanks

    • Hi Chloe, Thank you. Education is the key one for now. Tell as many people as you can. Share a link to http://www.nzfoodsecurity.org on facebook or equivalent and encourage your friends to share it. We need to grow this knowledge like a tree – so that when people see how this works, they will understand how the food bill works (ie, against them). Then they can do something. Kia ora.
