With every journalist and TV presenter including the 60 minute team either being fired or put under severe pressure to shut up about important political issues the police have begun to harass writers of the Daily Blog and the editor Martin Bradbury aka as Bomber. Bomber was in fact one of the very first journalists to be banned from NZ TV for criticising John Key!
The article which triggered a “friendly” request to remove it for the sake of National safety (!) was written by John Minto.
John Minto wrote the article in support of the workers at the Talley factories. He reminisced about what they did when fighting the apartheid regime which was wilfully damaging products coming from South Africa.
In the article he writes that in a purely metaphorically we should do the same with the Talley products as they attempt to break the meat workers union and trash their workers rights. He suggests that we should simply refuse to buy Talleys products as a way to show our displeasure with their Dickensian approach to workers rights and their union.
Bomber refused to take it down and the police told him they would be in touch with him next week. Bomber and John Minto, did not violate any law when the exercised their right to free speech. They did not call for violence and to call for a peaceful buyers strike against a company is hardly calling for an all out revolution.
It is important to understand that this is part of a coordinated effort to shut down dissent! They came for the journalists and TV hosts of programs critical of the government and the international 1%er coup called the TPPA first and now they are coming for the bloggers!
