(Gisborne Herald) THE Aotearoa Is Not For Sale hikoi is on its way to Gisborne.

Protesting the Government’s sale of assets, the hikoi left Cape Reinga on Tuesday, aiming to reach Wellington next Thursday.

A group from Rotorua is heading around the East Coast to meet up with a Te Whanau a Apanui protest group from Te Kaha and head to Gisborne.

Organisers encourage anyone who opposes the Government’s privatisation plans to meet at the town clock at 4pm Monday to march to Te Poho o Rawiri Marae.

As well as educating people on the sell-off of assets, the hikoi is to highlight legal action attempting to prevent the sale of the Crafar Farms and a Treaty of Waitangi claim.

People are also protesting against deep-water oil drilling, the proposed tax on beneficiaries and the proposed Transpacific Partnership Trade Agreement.

The event has been endorsed by the Labour Party, NZ First, the Green Party, Mana Party, Greenpeace and other organisations.

Following a powhiri and meal at Te Poho o Rawiri, a public meeting on the issues addressed by the hikoi will be open to anyone interested from 7pm.
