Interesting clips here give ‘food for thought’ and I think that we should be banding together to do the same thing.
Forming a New Zealaner Miners Rights Association to;
- Lobby the Government
- Educate the Public and SHOW gold fossicking as being; - a) a healthy FAMILY hobby b) a RIGHT of ALL New Zealanders c) an environmentally FRIENDLY hobby
- Open new areas for those interested in having shares in low cost claims so that they have areas close to home and can also visit areas in which the groups has claims to camp and fossick.
These areas would of course be under claim to the group - an initial joining fee would be required and that fee would go towards setting up claims. One member with expertise might do the ‘paper work’ and receive his membership free. A yearly fee would pay for claim fees and costs which should be minimal.
A plastic card would be issued each year which would show yearly to show valid membership.
All these things were inspired while watching two video clips - many things inspire me but the cost of petrol and living in a 'slave/police state prevents me!
I also think that a parent body could also be set up to protect the rights of ALL New Zealanders. This parent body would not be included in the Mining Claims but it would give the mining claims strength through numbers by actively involving itself in protecting the rights of OTHER interested groups…hunters access and firearm rights, trampers and walkers access, fishermens access and so on.
These are just a few thoughts because unloess we do soemthing about it ALL our rights will be denied as they have become severely eroded over the years and it is only us Golden Oldies - Aka the Senility Brigade - who have that benchmark of comparison…and WE KNOW that we are losing our RIGHTS in OUR country - which other bastards think they own.
