The queue is enormous. But here is the feed.
Thanks Selwyn for the link…..
19:05: Liala Harre has been improving her speaking since I last heard her. Introduced the speaker guests. Looking at the progressive achievements of the NZ past.
19:07: Glenn Greenwald is first up.
19:10: Greenwald calls John Key an adolescent 🙂 John Key has no interest in dignity or statesmanlike. “I’m not going to descend to the prime ministers level”
19:15: Greenwald directing his remarks towards John Key. In particular that Key is releasing classified information to protect HIS reputation.
19:20: Greenwald not paid. He told internet party to donate it to a charity. The Prime Ministers “reckless” accusation. Question is what is John Key saying about himself when he throws those types of accusations around. Does he have any principles?
19:28: NSA said project Speargun underway. Phase 1 completed. In this case actual implementation of technical means to capture internet data at the cables.
19:31: John Key lied about gaining new powers with the GCSB bill. In private they were saying something completely different. Waiting for GCSB Act before doing first metadata probe. The GBSB Act required to do the mass surveillance that Key was denying.
19:35: Snowden said that he saw the type of surveillance that Key was denying as an analyst in Hawaii (where our southern cross cable lands.
19:45: Prime Minister wrong in his facts about surveillance. John Key is doing a careful parsing of words. GCSB reads US copies of surveillance of NZ citizens
19:54: Snowden says that metadata is more powerful for analyst than content. He has seen NZ data, both metadata and content. Available to all members of the 5 eyes, and without significant oversight. In NZ that oversight such as it is – John Key.
20:03: Assange: 5 eyes is an alliance of intelligence agencies – not nations. There is no consent by the population, just by elites in these nations now monitoring the citizens for their own benefit.
20:15: Video done with encryption. Kim Dotcom just did an advert for mega.
20:18: Bob Amsterdam – lawyer on TPP.
20:25: Amsterdam states that John Key is an outlaw. For instance the law society objecting to John Key abusing the due process for passing laws. Using ‘terror’ to do citizen invasion…
20:35 Amsterdam calls for a comprehensive independent Royal Commission on the actions of the John Key government.
20:40:: Kim Dot com intro? Nope.
Gower predictably only interested in the email. Laila says proper process being followed – if speaker chooses to act.
Dotcom says the question is about John Key with the GCSB.
Dotcom is lecturing the media on their inadequacies and failings. It is not about his case, it was about the 5eyes, GCSB, and John Key’s government.
Greenwald saying that journalism is a about the facts. It is not about the election except that he has been working hard to get it out to allow people to go to the election with information.
