After Armistice: dealing with the effects of war

The Team from Auckland Museum

As we commemorate the 101st Armistice Day, it's timely that we reflect on the aftermath of the First World War; not only the massive scale of loss, but also the ongoing suffering experienced by those who returned from the first industrialised war.

As we commemorate the 101st Armistice Day, it's timely that we reflect on the aftermath of the First World War; not only the massive scale of loss, but also the ongoing suffering experienced by those who returned from the first industrialised war.

Arriving in back in Wellington, Colonel Evans pointedly reminded the soldiers of those left behind: “Remember,” he said, “When you go ashore you are not heroes. The heroes lie in France”. Having lost their comrades in the thousands, the soldiers hardly needed to be reminded of their 'luck' in making it through. Yet for those who survived, the physical and mental toll of the war was immense and for many unspeakable. Each service person confronted the psychological and emotional impact of a war unprecedented in its violence in their own personal way.

One soldier who suffered through his war service was Private Ivor Norman (Norm) Fleet 31249. A bushman who enlisted in Taumarunui, Fleet fought with the Wellington Infantry Regiment and received gunshot wounds to both legs during a clean-up operation at Bellevue Spur on 22 October 1917. His right leg was later amputated and he eventually returned to New Zealand where simply carried on with his life, marrying Elsie Petley in 1928, building his own house and forging a long and productive career. Norm rarely spoke of the war and relatives only recall seeing him in tears as his nephews left for the Second World War; a small clue to the pain that returned servicemen held inside. Like Norm, millions suffered silently in the aftermath. Today we honour their service and acknowledge the immeasurable suffering that came from it.

Lest we forget.

URGENT! The government is seeking to rush through new terrorism legislation in FOUR days

Blanche from Titirangi

The government is seeking to rush through new terrorism legislation - they have given just FOUR days for the public to make submissions (due Sunday, 10 November!). This rushed process is a serious violation of the democratic process, and the law is unnecessary.

The government is seeking to rush through new terrorism legislation - they have given just FOUR days for the public to make submissions (due Sunday, 10 November!). This rushed process is a serious violation of the democratic process, and the law is unnecessary.

MAKE A SUBMISSION

We are encouraging people to make a brief submission to Parliament opposing the Terrorism Suppression (Control Orders) Bill for the following reasons

Here are some points you can make in your submission:

The government is rushing through legislation, curtailing public input into legislation that severely restricts human rights including right to freedom of movement and fair trial rights. This is an unacceptable process in a free and democratic country.
The government says control orders are necessary because the existing Terrorism Suppression Act (TSA) may be unable to secure a prosecution. The government was told 11 years ago that the TSA needed significant changes. Thus far, neither a Labour nor National-party led government has sought to address this. Now it is rushing through legislation to fix a hole that they haven’t bothered about for more than a decade.
If a relevant person is engaged in criminal activity or poses a risk to New Zealanders then-existing criminal law (for threats or acts of violence) is sufficient to prosecute them. Imposing preventative punishment on someone (such as a curfew) based on what they might do runs contrary to our justice system.
The Terrorism Suppression Act already states that any person who joins a designated terrorist organisation is liable on conviction to imprisonment for up to 14 years. Such a person need not have committed any terrorism offences - membership in and of itself is sufficient.
The government is allowing the use of secret evidence, and although it says it will assign a lawyer to look at that evidence, it still means a person may have no way of knowing what the claims against them actually are or who is making them.
The basis of terrorism designations is not neutral or objective: designations are political by their very nature - one man’s terrorist is another’s freedom fighter so to speak. Would Nelson Mandela have been subject to a control order in his time? In some cases, New Zealand’s designations are based on politically-biased source material.
It isn’t clear how much “risk” a person must pose in order to be subject to a control order.


I encourage you to follow the link and make a short submission to show the government the voting public want fair and open government with proper consultation, four days is not appropriate for law making on such an important topic!

Hello there

I know I keep re-posting this week after week but as christmas draws closer & closer I get more anxious & would really like spread some true christmas joy to a family in need.

I am new to this Give A Little thing, but needed to do something to help someone very close to me, out of her current predicament. I have set up a Give A Little page for a very dear friend of mine & her young kids who have become victims of a situation that has left them homeless & with no car. If you wish to ask any questions or know more information I will reply to any messages I receive.

Below is the link to my Give a Little page. If you wish to forward the link to anyone who might also be willing to donate, that would be very greatly appreciated. The faster I can hit my target, the sooner I can forward it onto her & her kids:

givealittle.co.nz...

Thank you sincerely for taking the time to read my post & please, even if it's only to 1 or 2 people you know who might also be willing to donate, passing my post/link on, will help me tremendously in my quest.



Sincerest Regards
