New Zealand Quake Update: After 'Chaos', 'New Order' Dictatorship Being Tested

Update on: Christchurch (New Zealand) Devastated By Massive Earthquake: 'As Above, So below'? 9-3-10 [see post]
New Zealand’s parliament voted unanimously last month to pass the Canterbury Earthquake Response and Recovery Act (CERRA), which gives government ministers the power to override almost any law in the country’s statute books. The conservative National Party government pushed through the legislation in a single evening, with the full support of the Maori Party, the opposition Labour Party and the Green Party.
Both the government and opposition asserted that the sweeping powers were needed to provide assistance to the city of Christchurch and the surrounding Canterbury region, which was hit by a destructive 7.1 magnitude earthquake on September 4. But the Act does not provide any additional funding or assistance for the disaster victims, many of whom are living in badly damaged houses and have received little or no government assistance.*
Rather, this anti-democratic legislation concentrates wide powers in the hands of ministers and their unelected advisers. It sidelines parliament and effectively rules out public debate on measures that potentially have far reaching consequences. The provisions of the CERRA will remain in place until April 2012. For the next 18 months, as one columnist for the National Business Review put it, “a few ministers, so long as they can link it to the Canterbury earthquake, can make laws about almost everything by signing a bit of paper”.
The government has already announced that it is considering introducing a permanent version of the Act that could be applied in the event of any future emergency.
The scope of the CERRA is vaguely defined. Its stated purpose is to “enable the relaxation or suspension” of laws that “may divert resources” from recovery efforts, or that “may not be reasonably capable of being complied with, or complied with fully, owing to the circumstances resulting from the Canterbury earthquake”.
Decisions about which laws will be relaxed or suspended will be made through “Orders in Council”—essentially decrees issued via the Governor-General. Moreover, even the vague “purpose” need not be complied with because the CERRA states that Orders in Council “may not be challenged, reviewed, quashed, or called into question in any court”. Responsible ministers are also protected from legal liability.
A seven-member Earthquake Recovery Commission, appointed by Earthquake Recovery Minister Gerry Brownlee, will advise on which laws should be altered. The commission consists of senior government bureaucrats, an earthquake engineering expert, and the mayors of Christchurch City and the Selwyn and Waimakariri Districts.
Already, the CERRA has been used to extend state of emergency powers for police—put in place immediately after the earthquake—until the end of November. This allows police to seize vehicles and other property, close off and evacuate public areas and “direct any person to stop any activity” which is deemed to “contribute to any consequences of the Canterbury earthquake”.
Many people in need have received little or no help. Last month, about 100 residents from the badly damaged suburb of Avonside staged a rally to demand assistance. Rally organiser Angela Wasley said in a letter to residents that many people “do not qualify for help from local government agencies or the earthquake fund due to massive waiting lists for structural assessments and overloading of current systems”.

re: "make laws about anything...may not be challenged, reviewed, quashed, or called into question"
This is incredible and not in a good way.
In a single evening the new law is put in place and will stand for the next 18 months. Police currently are still operating under "emergency powers" and will continue until the end of the month, unless of course the 'Governor-General' arbitrarily decides to extend those powers again. Either way, according to this article the NZ government has already announced their intention to enact a "permanent version of the Act".
Overnight. That's how fast things can change in the Zionist global domination transformation project currently underway worldwide. Only thing needed is a little 'chaos', and bam...everything has changed. New Zealand is the latest to have found that out.

Take a good long look and do not forget. The global-transformation gang are working overtime to install the same authoritarian system across the globe. Unaccountable, unanswerable. Could be your geographic zone by the time you wake up tomorrow. The enemy is in the gates. Rom. 10:13
