The Tamaki Makaurau Electorate of the Maori Party have confirmed their support for the Maori Party, and their MP Dr. Pita R. Sharples to vote for the Marine and Coastal Area Bill.

We had two consultation hui in Auckland last week, which unanimously passed resolutions of support for Pita and the Maori Party to repeal the Foreshore and Seabed Act and replace it with the Marine and Coastal Area Bill. said Electorate Co-Chair, Frank Solomon.

The misinformation and scaremongering by some groups has resulted in mixed messages getting through to our people on the Takutai Moana Bill. We welcomed the opportunity to have our questions answered.

As our Tamaki Makaurau MP, we appreciated that Pita fronted up to his Electorate and explained his support for the Bill. Although the new Bill is far from perfect, we understand that it is a step forward and returns iwi and hapu rights to go to Court.

In response to the consultation hui held by Dr. Sharples in Auckland on the 23rd and 25th of February the Committee Co-Chair responded it is now clear to us why the Maori Party have been staunch in their support of this Bill, and it was helpful that we had Iwi Leaders present to give their views on the Bill also.

The hui wanted to let Pita and the Maori Party know that we are right behind them. Hurry up and repeal the Foreshore and Seabed Act! was the comment from the hui said Frank

  1. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE. PARTIES OF PARLIAMENT. GIVE US A BREAK. MAORI WANT TO LIVE IN HARMONY AND NOT GET SHOVELLED INTO THE GUTTER, TO BE RUN OVER BY FORIEGN INVESTERS. DO YOU CARE??? I DONT THINK SO……
    YOU ARE ALL ABOUT MONEY,MONEY,MONEY.
    TEN YEARS FROM NOW WE WONT EVEN OWN THE FORESHORE SEABED AND ALL WHO SWIM THERE, IF BILLS ARE MADE CONVIENTLY TO SHADOW THE FORESHORE AND SEABED ACT. YOU GUYS NEED TO WAKE UP AND SMELL YOUR S–T, BECAUSE THATS WHAT YOUR TRYING TO DO TO THIS COUNTRY.I SMELL RAT-SHIT IT DOESNT COME FROM HERE.

  2. Who is the maori party trying to con.Well they aint conning me and thousands of other maori who disagree wth the new takutai moana bill.How the hell are they going to repeal this whaaken bill when it is made law whaaken kupapa up Keys whaaken ass.Whaaken piss me off……..

  3. Maori Party must wake up and look over the horizon and see the storm of discontent and say [NO] to the Taku Tai Moana Bill.
    If the Party Maori remain blind to the approching then it will smother them into the pagers of history.

    Whats next?
    Asset stripping [selling] Foreshore

  4. The maori party is playing for the wrong team – National and ACT . it wasn't too long ago that Don Brash was leading national and maori bashing. Maori on the East Coast want maori party support against the threats of dangerous deep sea oil drilling, which puts their coast at risk. Hone plays for team Tino Rangatiratanga!

    Sharples should not support the selling off of Assets and selling NZ sand and land to overseas mining companies. Will the foreshore bill end out being the 'foreshore and seabed mining' bill that allows for Australian and Chinese etc mining companies to mine New Zealand's assets and seabed?

    Maori don't want asset sales and low wages.

  5. The misinformation and scaremongering by some groups has resulted in mixed messages getting through to our people on the Takutai Moana Bill… E hoa, this isnt my idea of what i asked you to do which was repeal the bill. Thats not scaremongering and its not misinformed. You havent done your job
