I feel it is not disabled who are ‘retarded’, but it’s the system that is ‘sick’ So before I could ever trust your system again, it has a Crown whom operate with integrity by honoring ‘our’ NZ Disability Strategy / Whakanui Oranga 2001,

DLANZ Disabled Citizen Rejects NZ Jury Service
No Way says Doug Hay Disabled Doing It for Themselves
Background / Preamble This is a reply sent to Auckland District Court stating my intention to refuse Jury Service. Its not the first time as the same happened in 2010. Then, I just sent what is basically said here. Then there was no reply, and so I’ve been able to post this as an open letter

“Section C – The legislation and policies by this NZ Crown for over 20 years has been nothing short of barbaric, duplicitous and also (in support of Saving Downs and other impairments, my own included), reaches heights of Genocide and Eugenics towards Disabled.

My response is based on the foundation of the Social Model of Disability, where it is Society that ‘disable’ people with barriers, rather than having an impairment “…due to poor government policies, I am not able to guarantee disability support (Transport Home Care) will be available to suit your time zones.” Also, I feel it is not disabled who are ‘retarded’, but it’s the system that is ‘sick’ So before I could ever trust your system again, it has a Crown whom operate with integrity by honoring ‘our’ NZ Disability Strategy / Whakanui Oranga 2001,

Making this ‘stand’ is done with the same conviction as boycotting the NZ Flag Referendum in 2015, where DISABLED LIBERATION AOTEAROA NZ took the stance …that Governments who DON’T put people and their Whenua /Environment, ahead of profits abdicate Sovereign Responsibility. The Legislative process of having this pit millions of dollars into as Flag instead of helping poor and homeless is a reflection of a Laissez-faire ‘We Don’t Care’ attitude of fiasco proportions” (DLANZ 2015)

Auckland District Court
Attn - Deputy Registrar – Juror Reference 6825
1 February 1, 2016

Tena koe / Hello
My name is Douglas Shaw Hay and on my Census since 2006, I have identified my Ethnicity as Hauaa / Disabled as my Impairment (Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenita / Tinana Puka ki Waho…Physical / Born), as the primary source of my identity in Aotearoa NZ’s Society. Refer ID (WINZ 293-367-451 and attached) .

This is to inform you I will not be attending the request for Jury Service on 2 grounds simultaneously:
1. Section B – While Courts may or may not be accessible, due to poor government policies, I am not able to guarantee disability support (Transport Home Care) will be available to suit your time zones.
2. Section C – The legislation and policies by this NZ Crown for over 20 years has been nothing short of barbaric, duplicitous and also (in support of Saving Downs and other impairments, my own included), reaches heights of Genocide and Eugenics towards Disabled.

I think it was Harbert who said that people with disabilities that would support terminations on the grounds of foetal abnormalities, are denying their own existence (Oliver 1990) In a voluntary role as Coordinator of DISABLED LIBERATION AOTEAROA NZ I wrote “If a citizen is obliged to give trust for a sovereign to rule, then the sovereign has a responsibility for its apparatus (People and Structured), to show integrity in ‘its’ applications. If policies are being generated for the benefit of a few, at the expense of a majority, which include violence (Glen Innes HCNZ), then DLANZ contend the system has become corrupt and defunct” (DLANZ post 2015) .

Therefore in Solidarity, I am unable to partake in such Sovereign duties as a citizen, while it has a Crown whom operate without integrity by not honoring ‘our Treaty’ NZ Disability Strategy / Whakanui Oranga 2001. Please be advised that until such time as this or any other NZ / Aotearoa Government start to provide inclusive not exclusive policies, it would be best to leave me out of it. This is not the 1st time either, so Crown Apology for Disabled / Hauaa before I could ever trust your system again,

It is customary to end my korero / writings with a Waiata / song…I choose ‘Hautoa’ Wind Warriors by Hinewehi Mohi and Oceania. She is a good mum of disabled kids now adults who night agree with me when I feel it is not disabled who are ‘retarded’, but it’s the system that is ‘sick’

Thank you and regards

DOUG HAY
