It Aint Fair

It Aint Fair .......But..........Then nothing is in This Life!

 Our Prime Minister, John Key, wants to spend $65,000 on a referendum, on changing our National Flag. Why doesn't he just leave the flag alone and spend the money to help Veterans of the Military.

I challenge you all to read this and have the will to do something.

Why has no one been able to explain to me why young men and women serve in the British, Canadian, Australian, New Zealand, or U.S. Military for 20 years, risking their lives protecting freedom, and only get up to 50% of their pay on retirement? While Politicians hold their political positions in the safe confines of all of our nation's capitals, protected by these same men and women, and receive full-pay and benefits as retirement after serving one term. It just does not make any sense. In the Uk some soldiers and their families come home only to be put onto the Streets - Homeless..! Whilst Immigrants and asylum seekers who have done nothing for our countries are treated to Free Housing, Medical Care and Benefits of every description..!

This is one proposal that really should be considered by one and all.

Your desire for Freedom will never die, so please have the will to allow our retired servicemen and women to live out their lives in peace, comfort and a little happiness.

"If you will not support this proposal, you still have made a choice," and these brave servicemen and women have given you that right..!

Welcome to the Mururoa Vets website

In 1973, the then Prime Minister of New Zealand, Norman Kirk, stated that the French where disobeying the World Court by continuing to test Nuclear bombs in the Pacific, namely at Mururoa Atoll. He sent a Government Representative the right honourable Fraser Colman, and the frigate HMNZS Otago, and then the frigate HMNZS Canterbury to stimulate world opinion against nuclear testing.

This site is intended to keep crew members of HMNZS Otago and HMNZS Canterbury that went to Mururoa Atoll (sometimes spelt Moruroa Atoll) in June, July and August 1973, the news media personel, the Government representative, and a representative from the National Laboratory, informed of medical, and other developments as they effect us.
