    Thumbs down Chinese Swoop on 16 Dairy Farms in New Zealand


    Chinese investors are buying New Zealand farmland for the first time, causing anxiety in a country heavily reliant on agriculture.
    New Zealand's government approved the sale of 16 dairy farms to a Chinese developer, whose total investment in the project will be more than £100m.
    The Prime Minister, John Key, defended the sale, saying less than 1 per cent of farmland had been sold to foreigners, but nationalist voices lined up against the deal, saying it will open the floodgates to foreign ownership

    Prime Minister John Key said that if Labour were to look at its own track record, "they were responsible for about 650,000ha of land being sold overseas".

    Rt. Hon Winston Peters
    Leader NZ First
    27 January 2012
    Crafar Farms Deal Economic Treason, Says Peters
    New Zealand First has described the sale of the Crafar farms to the China state owned company Shanghai Pengxin as economic treason.
    Rt Hon Winston Peters says the sale announcement was delayed until after the election because John Key did not have the guts to tell New Zealanders he was selling their country out beneath their feet.
    "New Zealanders have every reason to feel outraged and betrayed. Our country is being run for the benefit of foreign companies and the international money industry.
    "We call on every concerned citizen to flood the Prime Minister and every National MP with messages of disgust at their lack of loyalty to the country they live in."
    Mr Peters says even the way the farms were sold stinks because every dairy farmer in New Zealand knows the best way to get a good price for land is to offer it to the neighbours.
    The farms are spread over a wide area yet they were offered as a single block. This makes absolutely no sense and there is outrage in the rural sector about the way this deal is being handled."
    Mr Peters also says New Zealanders have the right to be told all the details and the politics of the sale of the Crafar farms so they can get a true picture of the way the country is being run to suit vested interests.
    "This is a bitterly sad day for New Zealand and there is more to come with our profitable power companies next on the block."

    The labelling of any Kiwi who opposes the sale of productive New Zealand assets to foreigners as anti-Chinese or 'bordering more on racism' is unjustified and wrong, says Labour Leader David Shearer.
    "Keeping Kiwi assets - like the Crafar farms - in New Zealand hands is a principle worth fighting for; and one totally detached from racism and xenophobia.
    "Both John Key and Land Information Minister Maurice Williamson have said that Labour is anti-Chinese and racist because of our opposition to the Crafar farms being sold to a Chinese company," David Shearer said.
    "I have been called much worse. What concerns me is that, by implication National is labelling every New Zealander opposed to the sale as anti-Chinese and possibly racist simply because they oppose the sale of profitable New Zealand-owned assets to foreign interests
    "Surveys show up to 85 percent of New Zealanders oppose selling our land to overseas owners. John Key and Williamson should retract their statements.
    "In 2010 John Key himself said he would hate to see New Zealanders as tenants in their own country. He may have changed his mind. But Labour hasn't. We have always said we are not opposed to foreign investment.
    "However we also believe no overseas purchaser has an automatic right to buy New Zealand land. That is a privilege, and any purchase must provide some added value.
    "In this case, local farmers can add more value than a foreign company with no farming expertise," David Shearer said.

    The asset sale issue is still being debated and if you listen to Prime Minister John Key's rhetoric of late, he'll tell you they're going to go through - and that's not negotiable. One of the strongest critics of asset sale for some years has been New Zealand First. No asset sales is one of the party’s core values, and party leader Winston Peters says that isn’t changing.“The fact is that Mr Key hasn’t got a majority for that, despite whatever he might say, the truth is that the United Party said that water was a strategic asset, and the Maori Party said that they were against it, and there goes Mr Key’s majority right there and then,” Mr Peters told Firstline this morning.Mr Peters claims the Maori Party has not raised concerns about asset sales with the Prime Minister, despite claiming otherwise.“What you’ve got is a party asleep, now being driven by other agendas and trying to say it’s doing something. If they want to stop asset sales, then just stop propping up Mr Key.“They’re not doing anything at all.”He believes the majority of New Zealanders are opposed to asset sales and is urging the public to ‘get vocal’ and lobby their local MPs.“This could be a case of now or never. If we don’t stop this now, it will just go on and we will be - as Mr Key predicted and he is facilitating – servants and serfs in our own country,” he says.The veteran politician also believes the Whanau Ora scheme is unnecessary and a waste of taxpayer dollars.“You’ve got this fund of $6 million dollars, being dished out to all sorts of esoteric feel-good programmes of no benefit to the New Zealand people at all or Maori in particular,” he says.

    Economical double standards; the Chinese control their economy with an iron fist, yet they're allowed by many other world economies to do whatever they please in foreign, sovereign nations.

    Not only does the purchase of farmland by the Chinese pose a threat to New Zealand’s economic independence. Another problem is the appalling record of China’s food safety practices and the potential to put at risk an industry that exports over $9.29 billion a year in milk products (source) and is the largest export earner in New Zealand’s economy.

    For example in the 2008 Chinese milk powder scandal, unscrupulous Chinese milk producers were found to have been mixing melamine to dairy products in a bid to falsify protein content tests. The practice, said to have been long standing, caused the deaths of at least six Chinese babies and left another 300,000 ill, sending chills to consumers at home and abroad.
    Not only did this story receive world wide attention but brought to light many other issues with food safety in China in general. Some of these are listed in the link given below.

    Chinese Food Scandals

    How are we to expect foreign consumers to trust New Zealand milk products when the Chinese have had a hand in the production process from the time the milk leaves the cow till it reaches the supermarket shelf? Hell after reading those links I wouldn’t consume any food or medicine produced by these people.

    That's right ..... plus the Chinese are not known for their kindness to animals. When I was in Blue China (Taiwan) years ago, I was shocked to learn that nutty (but well-educated, high-ranked military officers and other professionals) chinamen actually believe that the infliction of severe pain in an animal before its death actually enhances its flavor and taste ........ See, for example (you'll get a kick outa this) : 10 Unbelievable Things the Chinese Believe - Taki's Magazine

    Stuff like this is what actually led me to being Racially Aware. You have to ask yourself, we've seen the fall of many Great Empires throughout history, surely we've learned something? Then you realise things, and ask, why would those in power be doing this, this is exactly where the Romans went wrong ( or another nation). Then it hits you, almost inconveniently, because you know that you are in a minority who can no longer be ignorant, that those in power know this, and they act knowing of the consequences and parallels throughout history, that they will never act for the benefit of you solely, unless it benefits them. That's when you realise the truth about these weird people called Jews, whom you thought everyone hated for no reason, and after some time, you realise your race is the most precious thing you have in this world.

    That's exactly right... it starts with the realization that there's something rotten, there are so many things in our own nations which are position against our interests, and anyone snooping around a bit will find the usual suspects to be the player behind the curtain...

    I think a lot of youth realise this, but they turn towards Marxism rather than White Nationalism, which is a shame, but it shows that we have a very large generation of people who are potential members of our movement. Some feel like they shouldn't blame the Jews, merely because people have for so long, instead of finding out why they've always been blamed. I don't think there's ever been a group of people, that have been hated since time immemorial, for absolutely no reason. To think so is insulting to our ancestors.

    I seriously wish I could believe in all of this multi-cultural/racial crap, but it's the same as wishing I could grow wings and fly, it's just a fantasy. Honestly, I would love to just be a farmer in a small village and raise a large family, but I feel as though doing that would be turning my back on the fight that lies ahead. We don't do this because we hate, because we want to face off against a huge, corrupt system, we do it so that our sons and daughters don't have to, so that they only have to read about this in the history books, and can enjoy the fruits of our labour. That is what I fight for.
