Mary Hobbs On The Situation In Tokelau
“The rights of man do not come from the generosity of the state, but from the hand of God.”
–President John F Kennedy.
Many of us may dream of an island holiday, far from the madding crowd. With no airport and no port or harbour for visiting ships, Tokelau — made up of three main atolls, Atafu, Nukunonu and Fakaofo — is certainly far from the madding crowd. In fact, aside from hiring a private helicopter or boat, it takes the average person between 24 to 36 hours to get there by ship from Samoa and passengers are required to bring their own mattresses. On arrival, they disembark onto a launch to finally arrive on the beach.
Yet, the dream persists. Imagine a few weeks in a balmy climate, kissed by the sun, the joy of a tropical afternoon shower, and the kayaking, swimming, snorkelling, and diving. . . Bliss.
But what if you were imprisoned with your family at home on a small section on a tiny atoll in the Pacific for a year? What if you weren’t permitted to go to the local markets for food, or to ancestral family fishing grounds, and were also prohibited from attending church with the community? What if every day you woke to the same four walls and the same small section, reliant on the goodwill of others to bring supplies and perhaps books on rare occasions? And you could hear the surf roll onto the beach at the back of your home, but were not permitted to fish or swim there.
Mahelino Patelesio and his wife Ana have been imprisoned in their home for twelve months. For most of the summer, the family were not permitted to swim in the sea, or fish, even though their section backs onto the beach. Nor were they permitted to get a coconut from a nearby tree. (They have finally been permitted to swim in the sea since their plight, and that of other families in similar positions on Tokelau, became public knowledge.)
Their daughter, Jipsy, was fifteen when she was put under house arrest with her parents for refusing the experimental injection. She has been confined to her home for almost five months and recently had a laptop confiscated by the NZ Ministry of Education. Her access to online study was removed for exercising her right to freedom of speech by politely talking with Chantelle Baker.
Who is ordering this inhumane treatment?
Mainstream media reported on the story, with the headline that the family were under house arrest for “vaccine defiance”. An inflammatory headline that suggests the family was offered a “vaccine”, which they were not, and that they were “defiant”, suggesting insolence, or disobedience, which was incorrect.
The family politely (not defiantly) declined to accept an experimental mRNA injection (not a vaccine) that has never before been unleashed on humanity on such an international scale. It is still on trial and the full list of contents has not been disclosed as it is apparently “commercially sensitive”, yet it has been endlessly touted as “safe and effective”.
How can it be declared safe without full disclosure of all contents, when Pfizer’s recently disclosed papers list nine pages of adverse events, and when long-term side effects remain unknown?
Eminent international physicians have publicly warned of the dangers of this injection but are shut down by mainstream media who unfortunately have strong connections to the corporations and governments that are so desperate for everyone to have it.
The truth is hard to find, particularly in New Zealand, a country that is rapidly moving behind the times and becoming increasingly distanced from international news that differs from approved propaganda. One could be forgiven for considering the main aim of mainstream media appears more designed to install a perpetual unhealthy fear throughout the population as their headlines lurch from one crisis to another, at fever pitch.
Liz Gunn of FreeNZ media has done three interviews with Mahelino and explored the facts of the situation which can be seen here:
Her well-researched and deeply compassionate interviews reveal a far more factual account.
Yet, while countries in the northern hemisphere have thrown away their filth-attracting masks and mingle freely, with the strange experimental injections a memory of past craziness, the false narrative in New Zealand continues to be advertised.
If fear was a tradeable commodity, the New Zealand “government” would surely be among those leading the field.
Initially, it was understood that 70% of those injected would create “herd” immunity. Then it became 80%. But it is now known that it doesn’t stop a person from getting “COVID-19” or transmitting it, and it can cause serious side effects. And that leaves aside the greatest deception of all: no pathogen for “COVID-19” has ever been isolated or shown to exist. Additionally, “COVID-19” is not a specific disease it is simply declared on the basis of PCR and antigen “tests” that have no established validity. (Click on the highlighted words for the references on this from professional doctors and researchers).
However, there is a lot wrong with the very real “solution” endlessly advertised, for as of June 2022, Medsafe had listed 62,915 reports of adverse events.
After exhaustive research, lawyer Kirstin Murfitt sounded the alarm on serious concerns about the injection and wrote two open letters to all members of parliament, urging them to speak up and call for an investigation. Liz Gunn followed this up in an illuminating interview with Kirstin on Free NZ.
How many lives must be ruined before a halt is called?
“The rights of every man are diminished when the rights of one man are threatened.”
–President John F. Kennedy
Tokelau, to date, notwithstanding the fact that no pathogen has been shown to exist, has never had a case of what they call “COVID-19”.
Zero. 99% of the eligible population on the Nukunonu Atoll have been injected.
Tokelau residents report that many were coerced into it as they were initially threatened with banishment from the island if they did not get the experimental injection. It was frightening and most took it. The few who stood firm — approximately 17 between the atolls — were not banished, but put under house arrest instead.
But with no alleged “COVID-19” on the island and if the medication was “effective” why isolate those who had politely declined?
It seems these courageous souls are being punished for exercising a basic human right to decline experimental medication without their willing consent and for standing up for their rights under the Nuremberg Code, which is surely a right that every human being is entitled to.
This family, and others on Tokelau in similar circumstances, appear to have been subjected to a manipulative campaign of bullying and coercion, where their right to move about freely has been taken from them because they bravely declined an experimental treatment. An injection for which — as mentioned, but bears repeating — the full list of contents has never been disclosed, alters DNA in lab experiments and for which the long-term effects are unknown.
Whether here or Tokelau, or anywhere in the world, that is inhumane.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade apparently allege they have “no say” in the matter, that it is up to the local council and their customs. But because they have no jail, “house arrest” is used for those who commit a crime. But those confined to their homes for declining this experimental treatment have not committed any crime.
It seems more accurate to conclude that those aiding and abetting this inhumane situation are committing a crime.
Surely someone in government can simply pick up the phone and suggest this family be released? In a recent interview, the elders seemed at great pains to explain the prime minister and her father (who had been the NZ representative on Tokelau) have had nothing to do with their decision. Yet the repetition and intensity of the statement give pause for thought.
A house arrest on an atoll with no jail is understandable if it is to protect members of the community from someone committing crimes, but surely it is a different matter for a courageous family exercising their right to decline participation in a medical experiment that can have serious adverse effects?
Tokelau is under the jurisdiction of New Zealand. If a violation of human rights occurred on the island, the government would surely step in, wouldn’t they?
Well, human rights are being violated. So where is the government? There seems to be no problem meddling in the affairs of other countries when joining an international chorus.
Why is this different?
It is of concern, as the government is supposed to be representing New Zealanders, and championing human rights “not washing their hands” of it like a Pontius Pilate.
And if “the government’s hands are tied”, then why did the Ministry of Education extend the vindictiveness by removing the use of a computer from Mahelino and Ana’s teenage daughter, Jipsy, effectively cutting her off from her studies?
What has happened to the New Zealand government?
Yes, Tokelau is far from our shores, but they are part of New Zealand. They are New Zealand citizens. It is incumbent on a government representing its citizens to defend their basic human rights.
And if we, as individuals, don’t peacefully speak up for those among us who have been robbed of their basic human rights, what does that say about us?
And one day, if anyone comes for you, who will speak for you?
It is time dear Kiwis.
It is time.
We are at the eleventh hour. Shoulder-to-shoulder, we must peacefully stand together, speak out, and surround this family — and others who are enduring the same fate on Tokelau — with love, defending their rights as though they are our own.
For they are.
Ask questions for this lovely family and others suffering the same fate on Tokelau.
Be their voice. Speak for them.
Lobby your minister of parliament:
Write to the Human Rights Commission.
Something, no matter how small — it all helps.
And bless you all for doing this.
“Each time a man stands up for an ideal or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centres of energy and daring, those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.”
– Robert F. Kennedy
