Sumner roads open

All road blocks put up today in the Sumner area have been removed with the exception of the Main Road, which will be open shortly.

The road blocks were set up due to concerns over the stability of the rock face.

Police met with Sumner residents earlier this evening. The vast majority of them will be able to return home, while the emergency services and Civil Defence are speaking with a small number, believed to be about 20 households, about the situation with regard to their homes.

“It’s business as usual in Sumner however there will be a high profile, visible policing presence in the area throughout the night and into tomorrow,” says officer in charge Inspector Malcolm Johnston.

Gaza.Scoop: UNRWA School, Ambulances Attacked - Gaza MOH

Gordon Campbell:
On Gaza And Burning The Israeli Flag

One of the selling points in New Zealand’s campaign for a temporary seat on the Security Council is that we have a pluckily independent voice to offer on international conflicts.

This image is not entirely self-delusional. When we did occupy a temporary UN Security Council seat in the 1990s, New Zealand was forthright about the need for the international community to actively respond to the Rwanda genocide. On April 14, 1994, New Zealand, Nigeria and the Czech Republic were the only nations to call for a forceful UN intervention to halt the killings. It was a proud moment in the diplomatic record of the Bolger government.

What then, is the current National government doing with respect to the slaughter in Gaza? More>>
