Flashing my Wanga@Te Papa!
This all took place in the public space, the same place where, on entry to the venue Assoc Health Minister Hon. Peter Dunne was momentarily accessible to the public gaze and questioned on Class D's recreational use status now in the Ministry's brief. He didn't seem to know!. Nor of course did too many in attendance that weekend.
US Senators like Class D. US Mayors like Class D. US Lawyers Like Class D. Law Enforcement Like Class D. I have meet them. Even the Green party seems to like Class D.
Whose choking here in NZ?
The public space served us well for beyond a proscribed line of Te Papa tiles, between a drain and the second window, under duress of arrest that served to protect tourists from me, it placed me in full view of the Soros funded venue windows 'at coffee' break.
Stimulating stuff. What Dunne did, and the Police are gonna.
All day... and the next, well until 4:20pm.
So what did shutting me out mean... I got too meet everyone who came in to the public space too 'smoke'. Some were from Christchurch. Some were from the Ministry of Health sponsored event. And one came from the UN. Often.
I got more one on one time and repeat interviews with the UN delegate than the Prime Minister.
One or two were seen to hug me and shake the paw. They were law and order Politicians, health and law Professors, Doctors who are MP's, Lawyers who are Professors, Treatment and Health scientists and even members of the Expert Advisory Commitee on Drugs. Ever been kissed by a (non-smoking) Member of Parliament, in public space!.
The security at the big UN delegate attended pay for your own 'networking' dinner were polite. Obviously good men doing their job. But waiting outside to say 'Hi!' to some folk I knew like Phil Saxby and others, it would have been obvious even to Security that I was not out of place 'being there'. I was flattered by the attention they gave me. Obviously entirely unnecessary, but here too the public space served me well. This was the same dinner that South Island CAYAD administrators had requested that I beinvited on their behalf and thus included at the table. The answer from Ross Bell, I am reliably informed was 'emphatically no'.
Seriously, if I wanted to use the Public Toilets inside Te Papa, I was to be escorted (accompanied) by the Chief of Security and only 'if pre-arranged'. So what if I needed to excercise a rapid bowel movment, shit! I would have been in trouble then. It's harder to drive your pants and txt security than drive!
So, as I write I remain banned on Police Bail from the 'four avenues', now for a month, under duress of arrest for having the temerity to be seen speaking in a public space. We need to treasure that which we have.
To meet and greet important visitors coming to town (Worlds Best Expert on Dog Bites whom I organised to be on Kim Hill at 11:00am this Sat) aside from private car that cannot utilise the One-Way system, I find can't even go hear him on a bus 'recorded inside and out' as they all go through town. I dare not walk. [monitored 24hr video surveillance by non-sworn staff at the Police Station.] But even going inside a mile square of my home town... is against the law until a judge says it's not, what am I thinking! Well, only seven days to go!
I wonder if I might SAFER at the upcoming in March Te Papa Hui on Alcohol and Violence. (hmmm: see SAFERCHOICE.ORG )
