3rd June 8-9am Penny Bright Across Auckland.


GreenplanetFM104.6 Thursday 3rd June 8-9am Across Auckland.

Penny Bright is ready to tell you the truth behind the Auckland Super City.

The Auckland Super City! It's almost here. Are your excited?
Well, guess what? It's not a done deal yet and there is still time to stop it.
What the main stream media won't tell you is that the Auckland Super City
is a multi-national corporate "grab" of over 28 billion dollars' of New
Zealand assets.

Here is the scurrilous little secret that you are not being told:

A possible, 112 council services will all end up being privatised.
What does this mean? Major multi-national corporations will be running
Auckland. In fact, Auckland will expand all the way up to the Rodney
District, there will be no real accountability, nor will local people be
in charge. Profits? All going offshore.

Let's look behind the curtain shall we? Two years ago $850 million dollars
was spent with private contractors at Auckland City Council, and ratepayers cannot find out
where exactly the money was spent.

Where is the transparency in local government? Where is the accountability
in local government? Why is New Zealand doing this?

Who is Penny Bright?
Courageous 'Penny Bright' – is an anti-corruption
campaigner and 'whistle blower'.

Penny Bright has been arrested 22 times after being (unlawfully) denied
speaking rights at Auckland City Council, mainly on matters relating to
water, it is 21-1 to her (defended herself - no legal training), and 4
District Court Judges have acknowledged the "Public Watchdog' role - so
that is why she describes herself as a 'judicially recognised 'Public
Watchdog' on Metrowater, water and Auckland regional governance matters.

Penny has also been described in the NZ Herald as an 'anti-corruption
campaigner' in the fight for more transparency and accountability
particularly at local government. Penny Bright helped to set up the 'Stop
the Supercity' group - which is totally opposed to the attempted corporate
takeover of the Auckland region to run it 'like a business, by business -
for business'.

Pivotal to this perceived corrupt Supercity corporate coup are Auckland
regional water services - which are being set up for privatisation.

The corporate agenda has been for years to set up 'One Big Auckland Water
Company,' then contract out (privatise) the management and operation of
Auckland regional water services to United Water, 100% owned by the
biggest water multinational in the world, Veolia!

Like a giant octopus, United Water (Veolia), who established a base in
Papakura in 1997, has been slowly extending its covetous corporate
tentacles - and now have 7 contracts in New Zealand.

United Water's corporate agenda?

To encircle, and privatise water services of the entire Auckland region,
so that the income stream flowing from the pipes citizen have already paid
for, can flow into the bank accounts of Veolia's shareholders.
Situated, we don't know where!

Proposed changes to Local Government Act 2002 (Amendment) Bill, currently
before Parliament, would make it easier for such privatised water
contracts, by extending the maximum contracting term from 15 to 35 years,
and giving more power and control to private companies over our New
Zealand water services.
