The police go after journalists and truthtellers but ignore it when people are assalted.
I don’t see how any of us that stick their heads above the parapet can be safe in John Key’s fascist state.
Death threats & Right wing extremists in NZ – Why aren’t the Police protecting activists?
A 70-year-old eco-warrior has been left bruised and battered after being beaten in a “cowardly” attack outside his Shannon home in the dead of night.
Shannon man Corny Andrews said he heard something outside his home about 11.30pm Saturday and went out to investigate to see two men standing beside his van.
The former professional wrestler and former trade unionist said before he knew it he was being attacked from behind with a “king hit”. He believes there were four men involved.
“I asked them what they were doing and then I heard a noise to my left and the next thing another guy smacked me in the face. I never saw it coming. The force knocked me down the steps. I was seeing stars,” he said.
But the attacked didn’t stop there.
Mr Andrews said as he tried to get up the attackers started kicking him about the head and body.
“I was kicked in the mouth and kicked in the back. As I tried to get up I was kicked in the wrist … It was a cowardly attack on a defenceless person in the middle of the night. I didn’t have a chance against them.”
