Thank you so much for your interest and support over the year. However, with two deadlines looming, the issues are keeping us busy right up to the end of the year, with which you may be able to assist.
- If you or your organisation are considering registering as an interested party in the claims made in the High Court under the Marine and Coastal Area Act, a reminder that time is rapidly running out to do so. Details on how to go about finding who is claiming what are available in the newsletter below.
- Help is also being sought to collect signatures for petitions to spark polls in Palmerston North, Manawatu, Whakatane and Western Bay of Plenty. These councils have voted have voted to foster racial division by proceeding with separate Maori wards. See newsletter for details.
Other issues covered in this issue include:
- A report on the process which resulted in the creation of the Sea Change marine spatial plan for the Hauraki Gulf. The Plan strongly pushes for iwi co-governance of the entire coastline of the Hauraki Gulf, so the question must be asked - how did the process, and the Plan, end up heavily weighted in favour of Maori interests?
- A warning of the dangerous situation being created by the distortion of the history of New Zealand. Bruce Moon, deeply engaged in studying New Zealand history, and author of the author of "Real Treaty; False Treaty - The True Waitangi Story”, recently published a well-researched article, ‘Our-Reversion-to-Tribalism’. It is well worth taking the time to read. Please see the newsletter for more details.
- Recommended summer reading. The newsletter includes links to interesting articles by various authors.
