Nelson Mayor’s abysmally un-critical embracing….

Check out this photo: Nelson Mayor’s abysmally un-critical embracing of this destructive, anarchistic and anti-Western group.

Nelson Mayor Rachel Reese hugged emotional members of Extinction Rebellion after the council voted to declare climate change an emergency.

 See where  Stuart Basden, one of the founders of Extinction Rebellion whose members Mayor Rachel Reese so very foolishly recently embraced, set out its manifesto below…And it is those advocating his agenda whom Mayor Rachel Reese is supporting…Why?

This is what Nelson’s foolish Mayor and councillors have shockingly endorsed – The Marxist Extinction Rebellion group – now costing us all in yet more rises in rates – and loss of credibility. And almost incredibly,  Nelsonians now have to pay for an extremely highly paid individual “to manage climate change”.

Really? How? And all because of the sheer nonsense that we are facing a climate change “emergency”.

This arrogant move is being noted as a  huge departure from council’s annual plan and long-term plan. Without any public consultation, it involves raiding the port dividend.

Stuart Basden, 35, from Bristol, a co-founder {of Extinction Rebellion} was convicted of unlawful protests in May last year for blocking a tunnel into Heathrow by attaching himself to cars. he told the training day: ” By shutting down the streets we will force the government to negotiate with us, and hopefully they will cave in to our demands.”

As a reader comments: “Extinction rebellion really are the same old (censored) – but now mobilising the educated youth into nascent Green versions of the Red Guards.)

“The plan is to replace the ”criminal” western political systems with a ”better democracy” designed by Extinction Rebellion in which e.g. voting is no longer needed (sortition is preferred instead). The practical post-revolution steps have also been thought out well in advance.”  ***

Extinction Rebellion isn’t about the climate. It’s about toppling Western governments. Fine by you, Rachel?

The gullibility of the  climate change cultists, including Jacinda  Ardern’s government  – seizing on yet more opportunities to tax us – let alone the shocking censorship by STUFF  – is costing us all.

The sheer folly of all this is obvious in the fact that even if New Zealand – and even both New Zealand and Australia!  – reduced every single CO2 emission –  it is acknowledged it wouldn’t make one peck of  difference to Earth’s climate.

So why all the hysteria? And what a massive con is being inflicted on us all. ..

Hats off to the councils which have refused this “climate change emergency” nonsense.

Apparently, no provision was made for any well-informed Nelsonians to debate or oppose the issue  when this costly decision was inflicted upon the Nelson public. Equally as culpably,  I understand one one councillor  quite shockingly turned off the microphone of a very experienced member of the public  – to prevent his being heard!

We need to vote them out at the next election.

***” I use the term ‘insanity’ carefully, with the intention of highlighting the need for healing. Indigenous First Nation people helpfully taught me to see the mindset of the coloniser as a sickness. In no way do I intend to marginalise or discredit the experience of people who have been labelled ‘insane’ by a normative system, nor who identify as being ‘insane’.

** “Climate Justice refers to the injustice that those who are affected first and worst by extreme weather events (the people in the poorer countries, the majority of whom live in the Global South) are not likely to be the ones who caused the climate emissions (the people who consume the most, including the pathologically wasteful cultures of Europe and Turtle Island (aka North America), and the rich who live/travel around the world).”Stuart Basden

Time to think again, councillors…
