  1. We object to the Political Party named “The Maori Party” within the New Zealand Government, voting in support of the legislation named “The Marine and Coastal Area (Takutaimoana) Bill.

    This legislation violates and breaches Maori Rights embedded in the treaty named “Te Tiriti O Waitangi” and the Declaration named “He Whakaputanga o nga Rangatira o Niu Tireni”.

    We also object to the Maori Party,s continuation of support to this legislation.

    Therefore,we would like to state Maori Party’s vote of support for the Marine and Coastal Area Bill DOES NOT represent our support or tautoko.

    We request that the Political Party named the Maori Party cease immediately their continuation of support of the “Marine and Coastal Area(Takutaimoana) Bill, as it continues to violate and breach “Te Tiriti O Waitangi”.

    For the asaid reasons given above

    We request that Assent is NOT GIVEN to the Marine and Coastal Area (Takutaimoana) Bill by the Governor General of New Zealand.

  2. what are you marching for? the right to own the beaches and charge the public to use them? You people are just racist against pakeha.How dare you want control of beaches ,they are for ALL people not just a greedy minority who continually want to drag the country back with their greedy demands .

    1. Well you should read your history, then you might see who the biggest liars are, not to mention thieves really are, people like you are the ignorant, and arrogant, that make you GREEDY. GET IT RIGHT WE JUST FIGHTING FOR OUR RIGHTS AS TANGATA WHENUA , AND YOU ARE WHO, WHERE YOU FROM??

    2. Actually pakeha charge me rent for the house I live in, I am Tangata Whenua… but pakeha stole my inheritance, my land, my rights. Why do we have to pay you to live on our land? why do big fancy pakeha houses with private yards and big fences block my access to my beaches? Even the most ignorant can surely see how this looks? If I stole your trust fund or squatted your house wouldn't you fight to get it back?
