Did Government Poison NZ Troops in Afghanistan?
New Zealand Government Poisoned NZ Troops?
The recent news that 75 percent of 1500 Australian troops sent to Afghanistan were literally poisoned by anthrax vaccinations shots given to them by their government raises serious questions about whether similar shots, which were suspected to have been harmful, were given to New Zealand troops.
“It seems extremely likely that the New Zealand SAS and other deployments received these shots like their British and Australian counterparts, and that they suffered ill effects” said Valerie Morse of Peace Action Wellington.
“Helen Clark’s blatant misleading of the New Zealand public about the deployment of SAS troops gives us no faith that she will be immediately honest when answering the question ‘did her government poison New Zealand troops?”
Peace Action Wellington have sent an Official
Information Request to the Ministry of Defence to request
full information about any vaccinations programs given to
troops sent to Afghanistan or Iraq since 2003.
