Regretfully, The New Economic Rights Alliance is facing a serious challenge that is undermining our efforts.
We must inform you that a hostile sequestration has been attempted on our Chairman and co-founder, Scott Cundill, by a law firm in Pietermaritzburg called MASON Inc. Our non-profit organisation is obliged to inform our Members if a director is experiencing a legal issue that could affect the organisation and/or our High Court Court case against the banks.
It is NewERA’s opinion that this is a deliberate attack, aimed at undermining Scott’s work and the work of NewERA:
- Firstly, the sequestration proceedings were initiated in secret and without his knowledge.
- Secondly, Scott is not insolvent.
- Thirdly, MASON Inc has been keeping the attorneys representing the major banks against NewERA regularly apprised of Scott’s pending sequestration. They are doing so despite being fully aware that Scott is involved in High Court action against them. Fourthly, the sequestration claim has long since been settled.
We also confirm that the NewERA organised a protest march right up to the door of MASON Inc’s offices in June. You can see the photos and read about it here.
A hostile sequestration is a court order that would dis-allow Scott to be a director of this or any other organisation. Scott has been instrumental in growing the NewERA to 140,000 Members. He has spent over R100,000 of his own money in pursuing the cause, and despite this, he has not drawn a salary from NewERA in almost year.
To give you an idea of what Scott has achieved, here is his bio:
Scott Cundill is the author of the book “How NOT to Start and Run Your Own Business” and is currently CEO of Majestic Interactive, a 10-year-old software business that uses nature’s principles to nurture and grow customer relationships. He is also the founder of Planting Season South Africa, an initiative that aims to encourage one million South Africans to plant their own food. Scott began a sustainable community in the Natal Midlands in the year 2010, called Five Streams, which is a project aimed at proving to the world that it is possible to live “off-the-grid.” Finally, Scott is the Chairman of The New Economic Rights Alliance, a non-profit organisation with 140,000 members that supports victims of banks and corporations who put profit ahead of natural human rights.
Attached is a letter from Scott Cundill to Petrus Coetzee and Graham Shelwell of MASON Incorporated. It illustrates precisely why we need to stand up to bullies.
Although this is an embarrassing and tumultuous time for him, Scott knows that an attack like this was bound to happen. In order to bring about freedom, one needs to go through a journey of personal growth. As such, Scott is urging every one of our Members to realise that they are being badly misled. He urges you to learn everything you can about the banking and money system. If, for whatever reason NewERA cannot continue as a result of the actions of MASON Inc, the information on our website should be downloaded and spread around. All the articles and links are on the www.newera.org.za website.
We will keep you informed.
