    Scoop Report and Photoessay: Tonga Faces Crossroad

    Twenty four hours after rioters tore through Tonga's capital town looting and burning, leaving a sea of blazing buildings in their wake, New Zealand's Helen Clark said there were two futures on offer for the Pacific. "One is poverty and conflict; the other is peace and development." The comment accurately paints a crossroad for Tonga, for Solomon Islands, Fiji, for Melanesia in general. The comment acknowledges how accurate the United States' most recent handle for the Pacific is: The Arc of Uncertainty. See... Scoop On Assignment: Tonga Faces Crossroad [1]

    Health: Lab Testers Set To Boil Over

    District Health Boards say talks with a mediator planned for Friday and Monday are the best chance of preventing the week-long strike threatened by laboratory workers. Lab workers at 15 DHBs have threatened to strike for seven days from next Wednesday in support of a claim for more than a 20% increase in pay and conditions. The action will also affect three private labs and the New Zealand Blood Service. See... Mediation Scheduled For Lab Workers Talks [1]

    Gordon Campbell: On The Selling Out Of The Kurds

    Gordon Campbell: on the inquiry into the abuse of children in care

    Apparently, PM Jacinda Ardern has chosen to exclude faith-based institutions from the government’s promised inquiry into the abuse of children in state care. Any role for religious institutions – eg the Catholic Church – would be only to observe and to learn from any revelations that arise from the inquiry’s self-limiting focus on state-run institutions… More >>
