NZ nuclear free


Today in social studies slam I was on the side that wants NZ to become Nuclear free.


The Nuclear free policy of NZ is an important one although being close allies with the US and their Nuclear based military and Nuclear powered warships mean that NZ is protected by a nuclear umbrella.The New Zealand nuclear-free zone was created in July 1987 by David Lange prime minister of the time. meaning that NZ owned sea, land, and airspace are nuclear-free since then and has become a part of our foreign policy. That's why we don’t get visited by massive US naval warships. The last one we were ever visited by was in last November 2016.

Proposed Hollyford/Haast Road.


Today in school we are doing social studies slam the topic is Proposed Hollyford/Haast Road.I was on the side that wanted the road



To build the road it would cost 250 million dollars and people would also have to pay to use it. Some people say that if they build the road then the attraction will go down because there will be rubbish everywhere and it will be used to much. But then other people say build the road it will make the attraction better cause it will get used more and south island will have more tourists.To get to the park now it is 136km but if they build the new road it is approximately only going to be 98 km.But I would like to road to get build so a lot more people can enjoy the wonderful scenery.Also, some people think it talks too long to get there so they don’t even bother going because it is a too long drive.I think that if you build the road then more people will come and enjoy it then they will go and tell friends and then their friends will go and tell friends then there will be a lot more people there than there are today.

The Rainbow Warrior

10 July 1985                                                                             AFTER BOMBING watch this video to see the boat sinking Screenshot 2017-10-17 at 09.33.37.png


I was watching the news last night when the top story came on, headline ‘Rainbow warrior bombed in Auckland harbor’ the footage was devastating, there was a big explosion and then you could see the boat slowly sinking. I immediately jumped onto my computer and opened up email. I composed an email to the director of Greenpeace:
Dear Director
I just heard the news, has the rainbow warrior really been bombed? I have many questions such as who was killed? who did it? was it the French government? I would like to meet up in person.
Sincerely,
Jacob spears
Since that event, NZ has been nuclear-free.information about the event was released to the public 4 days later. The bombers were caught and sentenced to 10 years jail.The hole in the boat was 6x6 feet. Fernando Pereira died stuck in his cabin and drowned.

1981 rugby game spingbok vs nz

today in class we are doing arguments on the rugby game in 1981.I am a supporter.


15.7.1981

Today was the first test All blacks vs Springbok. All blacks kick butt winning 14-9, Yes! That will push them up the leaderboard. The ticket prices were outrageous I just managed to afford them. Even though there were flour bombs being thrown into the stands And a sheer amount of fighting and racism going on I still managed to enjoy it as I am a big supporter of the all blacks. I Can’t see why it's such a big deal it's just a bit of racism from the South African government and everyone is getting so worked up about it! My neighbor Barry Smith was shouting at the tv last night because of racism from the south African government.
