Injured man ready to starve - Local News - Taranaki Daily News

Injured man ready to starve - Local News - Taranaki Daily News: "Unless the new ACC minister intervenes in his 18-month battle for accident compensation, Hawera man Peter Kelly says he will head to Wellington today and camp outside Parliament on a starvation diet, to call public attention to his plight."

"Mr Kelly , a maintenance engineer at the PPCS meat plant at Hawera, bumped his head on a steel truss while working in a ceiling space in 2005. He was not wearing a company safety hat. He suffered a neck strain and has had continuing neck problems"

"A factor which he says has influenced the company's attitude is that he had resigned from work a month before the accident, "because it was a very unsafe place to work."
