'Vote Informed' Youtube NZ advert for End of Life choice - Rant

2020.09.19 09:41 purplemang 'Vote Informed' Youtube NZ advert for End of Life choice - Rant

When i had stage 2 cancer I subscribed to a couple of youtube channels of cancer patients that talk about their journey\whats going on. While visiting one due to a update video, I get an advert to the website "votesafe.co.nz".
This website really pissed me off and just shows how selfish and ignorant people are to the issue.
Quote from the website:
"“The Act states that someone as young as 18 with a terminal illness can choose euthanasia. This really scares me as an 18 year old myself.”– Rachel, First-time Voter, Waikato "
With the dates from memory, Watching my grandma die from stage 4 cancer slowly for 3-4 months in hospital , and then having 1 month of absolute pain and misery until they had to basically knocked her out on drugs just so she didn't have to deal with the pain and then that last week of every doctor\nurse basically waiting on her to die. It was horrible for everybody in the family, horrible beyond words for her and I would not wish that kind of suffering on anybody.
There solution to not allowing people to die peacefully if they have a medical condition that is terminal, is to "Improve access to palliative care", "Learn more about the process of death and dying", "Support each other showing true compassion".
Give me a fucking break, Try giving that solution to somebody suffocating daily in a hospital while there whole body is shutting down and in pain. Its disgustingly selfish to deny somebody a peaceful death to avoid a week or 2 weeks of pain, and allowing them to say goodbye on their terms.
To me, this comes down to selfishness, Ignorance and denial of reality .

2020.09.09 07:07 lolpolice88 Matariki promised to be revived. "Māori are acutely aware that the announcement ahead of October’s election smacks of dangling a carrot ahead of voting. And it will not be enough to distract Māori voters from the Labour-led government’s average record on Māori issues" Leigh-Marama McLachlan.

"Concerns about Matariki's 'bastardisation' raised, as Labour pledges new public holiday from 2022

Katarina Williams18:39, Sep 07 2020
The Labour Party’s pledge to make Matariki a public holiday signals a “coming of age” for the nation, a professor says, but he has concerns about its potential “bastardisation”.
If re-elected, Labour will add the Māori New Year to the national calendar from winter 2022, commemorated on either a Monday or Friday, and coming almost 50 years since the last public holiday was introduced.
Unlike Waitangi Day which can polarise people, Professor Rangi Matamua, a noted Māori astronomer and University of Waikato academic, said Matariki is about “celebrating the changing of the season, the environment and one another”.
“I think Matariki has evolved from being a Māori celebration. It is now becoming part of our identity, because the way we celebrate Matariki is very unique to where we are in the world. It’s becoming part of growing identity.
“All cultures have an association and a connection to astronomy, and the lunar phases and the movement of the sun ... I think if we’re living here, all of us have the ability to view and observe that change of season and celebrate it,” Matamua said.
The instigators of a petition which attracted 34,000 signatories calling for Matariki to be made a public holiday are claiming victory following Monday’s announcement, but warned the holiday could become commercialised.
ActionStation director Laura O’Connell Rapira – who launched a petition in May – believed the majority of New Zealanders wanted Matariki to become an official holiday, based on the results of a poll carried out earlier this year.
“This victory brings to everyone that has contributed to the revitalisation of Mātauranga Māori. Our ancestors are smiling with us today.
“While we are delighted about this announcement, we do have some remaining concerns about Matariki being co-opted and commercialised.
“It’s important for the government to ensure that how we commemorate Matariki is also informed by Māori experts in the Maramataka [the ancient Polynesian lunar calendar], not just when,” O’Connell Rapira said.
Matamua also raised concerns about the potential for the holiday’s “bastardisation”, saying he would be “very worried if it becomes very tacky and uncomfortable”.
“I am worried about the corporatisation and, in some ways, the commercialisation, but more so, the bastardisation of what Matariki can be where it’s such an important cultural practice that it becomes really watered down.
“Look at what we’ve done to Easter and Christmas, and some of these other celebrations as well. I think that, it doesn’t matter what we do, someone’s going to try and benefit from a commercial element.
“I have seen Matariki beer being produced. I’ve seen vegetable sales at Countdown. I think if it’s done with the best intentions and it’s about celebrating Matariki – because Matariki is connected to food and the environment and coming together – I don’t necessarily think culture and commerce are enemies,” Matamua said.
University of Auckland Te Wānanga o Waipapa senior lecturer Dr Daniel Hikuroa said integrating Matariki into the calendar will provide a point of difference to other holidays which are based on events or focused on commemorating people who aren’t from New Zealand.
“The difference with Matariki is that it’s drawn from a knowledge system that’s based on observations of those having lived in New Zealand for a very long time, so it’s very nice to have an opportunity to celebrate that.
“And it’s also an opportunity for New Zealanders to learn about the rigour and the accuracy, the precision and the elegance which is Matariki,” Hikuroa said.
Labour leader Jacinda Ardern said “the time has come” for the Māori New Year to be celebrated.
“Matariki will be distinctly New Zealand holiday and a time for reflection, celebration and to look to the future as we take increasing pride in our unique national identity.
“We don’t have many statutory holidays compared to other OECD countries and it would be good to break up the long run through winter,” Ardern said.
If elected, Labour said it will work with a group of academics and experts to plan out when the exact dates of the public holiday will happen."

2020.06.20 23:59 StatisticalSupernova Is circumcision prevalent in New Zealand?

Only information I could find online specific to New Zealand on this topic was somewhat out of date. I'm curious how other Kiwis feel about circumcision (in 2020); Are you for or against circumcision?
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prevalence_of_circumcision#New_Zealand
According to the World Health Organisation, fewer than 20% of males are circumcised in New Zealand in 2007.[2] In New Zealand routine circumcision for which there is no medical indication is uncommon and no longer publicly funded within the public hospital system.[59] In a study of men born in 1972–1973 in Dunedin, 40.2% were circumcised.[60] In a study of men born in 1977 in Christchurch, 26.1% were circumcised.[61] A 1991 survey conducted in Waikato found that 7% of male infants were circumcised.[62]

2020.06.19 06:00 ExpensiveCancel6 Some information on political advertising in NZ

I've been looking at Facebook's ad library, and the ads put up by political parties, and I figured I'd share the run down on my first data point. Firstly, because most people don't know about the ad library, and secondly, because this was a topic at some point in the media without any recognition of the tools that actually exist to investigate it.
I'm going to try and avoid including analysis and stick to just the factual information for this post, as it is only my first data point.
If people would like more of this, either going further back, looking at specific time frames, more in depth analysis, or just updates as the election gets closer, let me know. More information in the comments.
Also, do note that I did some of this on June 16 and some on June 19 and the status of some ad campaigns has changed since. If any information does not coincide with what is currently shown on the links, then please let me know as it may have coincided with available information on June 16. If this is the case, where I have not screenshot the information I will change it to what is currently available.
Page management:
Each party page which is in the ad library, and has ads.
Greens
Labour
Maori Party
National
TOP
ACT and NZ First are not currently appearing for me in searches of the ad library (searching their @ handles), however, both David Seymour and Winston Peters are findable in the library on their own accounts and Peters does have an ad up
David
Winston
Parties findable in the search function, but with no ads
Mana
New Conservative
Just to be clear, not having ads promoted from their main Facebook page, or not being available in the ad library, does not mean these parties aren't advertising on Facebook.
Greens have the highest number of page managers, with 18, Labour are second with 14, TOP third with 11, all the rest are around 8 or 9.
David Seymour's page is managed by 13 people, contrast this to Winston Peter's 2.
For comparison other MPs (party leaders, Collins and Swarbrick included due to high social media presence)
Ardern, 12 managers and no ads
Bridges, 6 managers with 3 ads
Collins, one manager currently 0 ads
Davidson, 10 managers and one ad
Muller, five managers and one ad
Shaw, 10 managers and no ads
Simmons, 4 managers and no ads
Swarbrick, 8 managers and 0 ads
All of the accounts are majority run/managed/updated by people in New Zealand, however, a few have individuals based in another country.
Labour: 1 manager from UK
Maori: 1 manager from UK
Bridges: 1 manager from Australia
Shaw: 1 manager from Switzerland
Volume and Platforms
This is the number of ad campaigns which have run since May 1, including those which started before May 1. If an ad campaign started on April 6 and finished on May 1, it would be included, if it began on April 6 and finished on April 30, it would not. This is just for ease. I'll probably go further back at some point and am happy to post as a follow up if anybody is interested. I am counting ad campaigns, not ads themselves (a party may do two campaigns with the same ad, eg Labour have one Facebook exclusive ad that has four associated campaigns).
Greens - 26 advertising campaigns. 6 Facebook exclusive, 20 have been on Instagram and Facebook.
Labour - 46 ads. 13 are Facebook exclusive, 1 is Instagram exclusive, 32 are on both platforms.
Maori - 1 ad. Facebook exclusive.

2020.05.28 03:04 kezzaNZ Coronavirus - 0 new cases, 8 (-12) currently active - 28/05

Bloomfield said 12 recovered, leaving 8 active, my maths says it should be 9. However the MoH site says -13 change in active cases. I presume the difference is the death, however she was considered recovered??
There is technically a new death today. The new death is a St Margaret resident who was a confirmed case, she had been transferred to hospital for care. Once recovered and had two negative test results she was transferred back to St Margarets. Its important to note that she had recovered at the time of her death, and her death certificate does not list Covid 19 as the primary cause of death, but to be consistent with our inclusive approach to date, her death is being added to our total.
The South Island is now COVID free. In fact the entirety of New Zealand is outside of Auckland is.

There is a specific plan that has been developed around that and once its been approved by Cabinet is intended to come into action on June 8. That will be where the focus of our asymptomatic testing will be in the future.

2020.05.26 07:10 lolpolice88 Race Relations boss wants New Zealand Land Wars holiday

https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/121593715/race-relations-boss-wants-new-zealand-land-wars-holiday
"Race Relations Commissioner Meng Foon has swung his support behind marking the New Zealand Land Wars with a public holiday.
Foon confirmed Friday that he had emailed Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern pushing for the day to be memorialised.
He had also lobbied Ministers to set legislation moving the New Zealand Wars commemoration from a local event to a public holiday.
"This is what iwi have long called for," Foon said.
"I believe strongly in the need to teach our children to have a sound understanding of the past, and prepare them for a future built on the confidence this knowledge will bring about their history."
A ‘New Zealand Wars’ public holiday would serve as a memorial day similar to Anzac Day, he said. It would be a chance to pause and remember the events of the 1800s, including the many battles where Māori lives were lost, were incarcerated, and land confiscated.
The New Zealand Land Wars were a series of armed conflicts between Māori and the Crown, beginning in 1845 in Te Tai Tokerau and continuing until the 1870s with Te Kooti.
Te Pūtake o te Riri is currently set aside on October 28 each year to mark the Wars. If a public holiday were established it would likely share the same date.
On Tuesday, Ardern said new public holidays were among a number of ideas being considered by the government to stimulate domestic tourism and spending.
The Battle of Rangiriri was a major engagement in the invasion of Waikato, which took place on 20-21 November 1863 during the New Zealand land wars
"We've opened up for New Zealanders to see their own backyards and I encourage them to do that," Ardern said.
She said the Government had set aside $400m for the wider tourism sector, although she acknowledged some "large-scale tourism operations may for a period of time have to go into hibernation".
"We want to work alongside the industry to identify a path forward as a whole."
She said work was under way on the Trans-Tasman 'bubble', but could give no timelines.
'Our plan has to be for the New Zealand tourism industry and see that open up again.

Managed Isolation
10,000 people have now been in managed isolation. 8000 of those have left managed isolation and returned home.
The boarder border is still the riskiest part of our elimination strategy. International arrivals are essentially the potential source of infections in Aotearoa.
Exemptions need to all be considered carefully and we do this with great care and as quickly as possible. A number have now been granted and everyone is looked at on its merits. However every exemption creates risks and therefore are only granted in exceptional circumstances.
For comparison - If we were the UK we would have had 3500 deaths to date and still would be reporting 250 new cases. And we would still be in lockdown.

2020.02.14 12:26 lolpolice88 Fucking Scumbag Criminal Pakeha Quacks still looting Maori Graves for their racist colonial bullshit. If you catch them you know what to do.

https://www.rnz.co.nz/news/in-depth/409521/concerns-over-secret-search-for-giants-bones-near-huntly
" A secretive group excavating a cave they believe is filled with a race of pre-Polynesian giants' skeletons have iwi and archaeologists worried.

Archaeologists say a group of people tunnelling into the side of a country road in search of a race of pre-Polynesian giants' skeletons could be damaging the archaeological record.
A representative of local iwi, Ngāti Taahinga, who have tīpuna and taonga buried in the limestone-rich north Waikato area's caves, has described the group's actions as "disturbing".
RNZ understands one member of the group is a caver, but none are trained archaeologists.
Since 2016, the group has recorded progress of the dig by sharing photos, videos and written updates on a blog that has been viewed more than 88,000 times.
Otago University associate professor of bioarchaeology Dr Siân Halcrow worries about the number of people who might come across the blog and believe the information being put out on it.
"It does really highlight what some New Zealanders think, in terms of pre-Māori conspiracy theories, with really racist undertones. It's not grounded in fact, so people should be aware."
Though the group has tried to keep the location of the cave secret, RNZ has been able to confirm its whereabouts and contact the landowner, who was unaware of the dig and said the group did not have his permission to be tunnelling into his property.
***
The secretive group has been sporadically digging out the tube-like cave for close to four years, often under the cover of darkness. They are yet to find any real evidence of the supposed giants they call the "tall ones", although they say they have already found several bones in the cave.
The group has determined one is the leg bone of an 8 foot tall human and could be up to 2500 years old. "This here, my friends, is a human bone of a pre-Polynesian inhabitant," a male voice says in a video of the hollow bone posted online by the group. "You can tell by the triangular shape. It's most likely a tibia, which would make this… individual 8ft 4 inches tall… Regardless of its length, this is an older bone than any human being in New Zealand. What do our detractors say now, we wonder?"
Experts say the bone probably belongs to a moa.

The lack of evidence hasn't hampered the enthusiasm of the group's apparent leader, who does not reveal his name online but goes by the initials 'IJ'.
"Providing proof of 8' humans to the world will be bigger than finding Tutankhamen," he tells RNZ, via email, adding that the discovery will be "the most talked about worldwide story of the millennium."
A spokesman for Heritage New Zealand - the government entity tasked with protecting New Zealand's historic and cultural heritage - is less excited. Although it's illegal to modify or destroy any part of an archaeological site without authority from Heritage New Zealand, the spokesman says he has "no reason to believe that the purported cave is an archaeological site". In other words, the experts don't think the cave contains any evidence of pre-1900 human activity - giant human bones or otherwise.
The farmer who owns the land is fuming. Despite writing on the blog that "the land owner knows and approves of what we do", the property owner told RNZ he was unaware of the dig, and the group did not have his permission.
***
There are many myths, rumours and oral histories pertaining to what lies beneath the crumpled farmland that spreads along the west coast, between Port Waikato and Raglan. Some are more far fetched than others.
Al Mannering, who grew up on a farm in the Waikaretu Valley where the tunnel is being dug, recalls stories of a pou whenua (carved wooden post) being found near a sharp bend when the road was cut, which he says may have signified a nearby urupā. He also recalls seeing a human femur about 2cm longer than his own. "And I am 6ft."

Another story comes from 88-year-old Maurice Tyson, who has lived in nearby Tuakau since he was a teen. He tells of a 'crypt' filled with 14 or more 8ft tall skeletons being uncovered by road workers, then quickly reburied by archaeologists, as part of a wider conspiracy to keep New Zealand's true history a secret.
Tyson doesn't claim to have seen the skeletons, or their reburial - but says the story was told to him by the road workers who found them. He has multiple theories about who the skeletons belong to - from victims of the Spanish flu to WWII Japanese soldiers.
On self-proclaimed "astro-archaeologist" Martin Doutre's CelticNZ website, an article describes a tribe of tall "Aztec type Maoris" [sic] referred to as the "Tall Ones" who lived in north Waikato caves and were eaten to extinction. The article mentions a "secret burial cave" that is "packed with the dead of the tribe."
It is these stories that seem to have inspired IJ and his crew, (who use the initials BM, YM, RL Davidson and MD on their blog,) to tunnel into the limestone cave in a bank on the side of Waikaretu Valley Rd.
"In the following pages and over the next three years or so you will find digital photos and information, along with video, that will prove that the 'tall ones' actually existed and that they were here long before Maori ever arrived and took the land from them," the blog reads.
"Maori, as we know them, did not possess an empty land as taught in the school books these days or as printed these days in the media - Polynesian's, in fact, came to a land already occupied and then they conquered it [sic] … What is inside our cave, when we finally reach the cavern part, will eventually prove this".
***
Though some believe the group is motivated by racism, Eru Whare of Ngāti Taahinga, who is chairman of Pukerewa Marae which is near the cave, is giving IJ and his crew the benefit of the doubt. "I wouldn't put it down to racism. I think it would be a lack of education and understanding of cultural values," he says.
But it's still hard for Whare to understand how or why something like this would be done without talking to iwi first - especially if it's human bones the diggers are searching for. "We have a number of caves back home [in the Waikaretu Valley] and there's still some of our loved ones buried in there. In our history and our culture we always talk about our bones. Where we come from, that's where our bones are. So in an urupā, or this case a cave, when you remove the bones from a place where we laid our dead or our loved ones, it removes that whole spiritual, tapu essence.
"It's very hard for our people to try and decipher why people would do such things. And whether they are looking for, you know, big giants or moas. I mean I can understand... But for guys just going in there without any consultation. Well, that's something else. That's a pretty disturbing approach."
***
Despite the group's raison d'etre being the search "for those here long before the Polynesian migrations occurred," there is no evidence of human habitation of Aotearoa New Zealand prior to the arrival of Polynesians. "Every professional archaeologist will tell you the same," Waikato-based archaeologist Sian Keith says.
The pervasive myth that an earlier population of Moriori was displaced by Māori has been repeatedly rejected by academics. So have suggestions that, prior to the arrival of Polynesians, the country was settled by Egyptians, Celts, Greeks, Chinese, Melanesians, or Phoenicians by people like Doutre and Ross Baker of the One New Zealand Foundation (which opposed the return of land to Māori under the Treaty of Waitangi), Bryan Mitchell who believes New Zealand was first settled by a Scottish cattle farmer in the 12th century, Ross Wiseman, Noel Hilliam, Gary Cook and former National Front secretary Kerry Bolton.
More recent stories by writer Barry Brailsford of a mystical, peace-loving, non-Māori race which colonised New Zealand 2000 years before Polynesians arrived, were described as "virulent myth" by archaeologist Atholl Anderson. As with stories of Moriori pushed to justify British colonisation, Brailsford describes the purported peace-loving race as having been killed by Māori.
"These conspiracy theories are really grounded in racist ideologies. They need to be pulled apart for what they are," bioarchaeologist Siân Halcrow says. "There's no cover up."
University of Waikato teaching fellow Dr M Dentith, who studies conspiracy theory, fake news, and secrecy, agrees. "Quite a lot of these theories are used to make some variation of the claim 'Well, if white people were here first, then the Treaty is null and void', or 'We did to Māori only what they did to our distant ancestors'," Dentith says. "My interest is largely in the kinds of 'evidence' people like this put forward in support of their conspiracy theory that the government and Māori are hiding the existence of a pre-Māori, white civilisation here." Like Eru Whare, Dentith links the prevalence of these ideas back to a lack of education about the history and prehistory of Aotearoa.
IJ and his crew appear to loosely subscribe to Brailsford's theory. On the blog, IJ writes of his belief that the "true ancient history" of this country has been "covered up, secreted away, and legislated against" by academics, iwi and archaeologists.

Canterbury Museum curator Paul Scofield calls alternative theories about pre-Polynesian inhabitants of New Zealand "crackpot" and says the north Waikato cave dig reminds him of a low-cost version of a Dutch-American textiles magnate's 20 year search for gold buried by Spanish pirates on Juan Fernandez Island, off the coast of Chile. But he says nothing can be done about the removal of moa bones from the cave if it is on private land, as there is no legislation protecting the extinct birds' remains.
Talk of cover-ups and academic conspiracies frustrates archaeologist Sian Keith. "One of our jobs as archaeologists is to assess, retrieve and analyse the data from historic sites," she says. "We work with tangible evidence, scientific dating, environmental analysis, and engaging with iwi and hapu who have a rich oral tradition. There are many specialists working in the archaeological field who are passionate and thorough.
"The evidence for pre-Māori inhabitants, of any origin, simply isn't there. If it was, the professional community would have identified it and it would be common knowledge. Archaeologists are not secretive, the work we do is carefully managed under the Heritage New Zealand Pouhere Taonga Act, and investigations and excavations have to be formally reported on."
It doesn't matter to the diggers. The most recent update on their progress was posted online by IJ and MD last week. They expressed surprise at the lack of social media reaction to the bone they found. The tunnel they have excavated is now about 14 metres into the hillside. There is still no cavern in sight."

2019.09.27 13:01 lolpolice88 Ihumātao No Treaty Settlement opens three-way Solution

https://www.waateanews.com/waateanews/x_news/MjI3OTE/Ihumātao-%7C-No-Treaty-Settlement-opens-three-way-Solution
" Ihumātao No Treaty Settlement opens three-way Solution Dr Rawiri Taonui
As requested by Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, the Kīngitanga have returned from discussions with mana whenua and called on the Government to negotiate with Fletcher Residential to return the Ōruarangi land at Ihumātao to its ‘rightful owners’. Responses from our politicians questioning that recommendation by reference to a Treaty of Waitangi settlement that never occurred and naming the wrong tribe as mana whenua are disappointingly ill-informed.
No Treaty Settlement
Deputy Prime Minister and New Zealand First Leader Winston Peters, Labour Party Deputy Leader and Minister of Crown - Māori Relations Kelvin Davis, Minister for Whānau Ora Peeni Henare, Opposition and National Party Leader Simon Bridges and Deputy Opposition Leader Paula Bennett mistakenly think that Te Kawerau ā Maki (Te Kawerau) are mana whenua at Ihumātao and signed a Treaty settlement for that land and therefore a Government funded resolution will undermine ‘all full and final’ Treaty settlements.
These assumptions seem to stem from former National Government Minister for Treaty Negotiations Chris Finlayson who says he personally ‘negotiated and signed a settlement for all matters at Ihumātao’ on ‘a wonderful day’ at Makaurau Marae on 22 February 2014. Finlayson did sign the Te Kawerau ā Maki Settlement on that date and at Ihumātao; but obviously did not read the agreement because it does not include the 1860s confiscation or any other ‘matters’ pertaining to Ihumātao.
Mana Whenua
The historical record from 1835 to 1966 shows that an amalgam of Ngāti Te Ahiwaru and Ngāti Māhuta (Te Ahiwaru) were mana whenua at Ihumātao and Te Kawerau a related tribe in West Auckland. The Te Kawerau Settlement says that, after becoming virtually landless during the early 1900s, tribal members began leaving West Auckland. Some went to Ihumātao, most scattered across Auckland.
In 2008, Te Kawerau entered two Treaty processes, one culminating in the Tāmaki Collective Agreement (2012) over the volcanic cones of Auckland, and another for their individual tribal claims in West Auckland. The settlement covering the latter was signed at Makaurau Marae but only because Te Kawerau no longer had a marae of their own.
The signing and location of that agreement, coupled with the fact that inadvertently or otherwise the former National Government left Te Ahiwaru out of the Auckland-Tāmaki process, created the mistaken impression that Te Kawerau are mana whenua for Ihumātao and had signed a settlement for that land. Te Ahiwaru are the principal mana whenua at Ihumātao. Te Kawerau have an interest because some of their descendants live at Ihumātao. There is no Treaty settlement.
The Labour Government
The absence of a settlement opens the possibility of a Crown-led resolution. The Crown has an obligation to contribute. Ihumātao has mana whenua and mana New Zealand archaeological and cultural significance. It has living history. The first two Māori kings Pōtatau Te Wherowhero and Tāwhiao lived there. Devoid of the statues honouring the white heroes of the 1860s Pākehā War on Māori, the land memorialises the forced eviction, internment and loss of indigenous life and stands testament to the resilience of the demographically reduced remnant Te Ahiwaru that survives on the miniscule papakāinga at Ihumātao.
There are numerous precedents for Crown intervention in the public interest, many much larger than that required at Ihumātao. The Crown bailed out insurance company AMI ($500 million) after the Christchurch earthquakes. Under an investor protection scheme, established by former Prime Minister Helen Clark, they bailed out South Canterbury Finance ($1.2 billion), Allied Nationwide ($130m), Equitable Mortgage ($188m) and a host of smaller finance companies. Before that, the Crown bailed out Air New Zealand ($885m) and the Bank of New Zealand ($1 billion), the latter ironically founded on the sale of the 60,000 hectares confiscated in South Auckland, one small corner of which the Crown now baulks.
Crown policy is not to include private land in Treaty settlements, nevertheless the Crown has intervened in circumstances of exceptional cultural value, for example buying and returning a pā on private land in the Te Uri o Hau Settlement (2000). For similar reasons the Crown has returned previously accessible public land, like the 170 hectares in the Ngāti Porou Settlement (2010) and 10 hectares in the Ngāti Tama Settlement (2001).
The Crown has also resolved situations that for whatever reason arose outside of Treaty settlement frameworks. The Crown moved peppercorn leases of Māori land to market rentals through the Māori Reserved Land Amendment Act (1997). This included parallel compensation of $47.5 million to Māori for losses on rental income and over $100 million to mainly Pākehā lessees for loss of equity on farms and properties. If the Crown can pay Pākehā lessees, in today’s dollars what amounts to five times more than what is required to buy Ihumātao, it can settle the furore in South Auckland.
Auckland Council
Auckland Mayor Phil Goff is another who wrongly labels Ihumātao a ‘Treaty matter’. He has also said that the Council will not be spending $40 million on buying the land and cannot afford to do so because of commitments to other open public space. This is questionable. The Council recently re-designated 233 hectares of its land as open space - Council land, no acquisition cost.
Moreover, the current 10-year Auckland Council Budget includes $1.180 billion for the acquisition and development of open space and local parks. Over the same period the Council is intending to sell $834 million of buildings, golf courses, car parks and parks much of which it wants to see redeveloped including for housing.
It is duplicitous to claim the Council cannot afford 1.5 per cent of that budget for a 50 percent share alongside the Crown to purchase Ōruarangi (current value $36 million) or less if Fletcher front. Alternatively, there is an obvious opportunity to land swap Fletcher onto land Council intends to sell and return Ihumātao to mana whenua.
The Council has a responsibility. Auckland’s avarice drove the 1860s confiscation, its citizens raided Ihumātao stealing possessions and livestock and burning homes. Auckland has benefitted by inestimable billions of dollars in real estate and industry on the confiscated lands in South Auckland. The Council initiated the Auckland Airport development and Māngere sewerage works, which devastated the Ihumātao community. The Council also ignored the advice of its own officials in the confidential Wallace Block Report that substantial dialogue was required with Te Ahiwaru over the Fletcher proposal. Instead, they and Fletcher manipulated Te Kawerau, to progress the project.
Other Councils have shown leadership in similar non-Treaty contexts. In 1990, the former Manukau City Council returned the titles for an urupā and the Te Pūkaki Tapu o Poutūkeka (Pūkaki Lagoon Crater) to the Pūkaki Māori Marae Committee. In 2001, they purchased 100 hectares of private land for $4.7 million to establish the Ōtuataua Stonefields Historic Reserve, and in 2007 another 25 hectares of private land creating the Pūkaki Crater Reserve to be jointly managed with Te Ākitai Waiohua.
There are similar examples around the country, for example in late August this year, the Waikato District Council recommending the return of two portions of land to iwi in Raglan and Whatawhata.
In a paradox of duplicity for Ihumātao, in 2009, the former Waitākere Council, acting outside Treaty processes, paid $1 million for 2.6 hectares of private land at Bethells Rd in West Auckland to build a new Te Kawerau marae. In June this year, a month before the stand-off at Ihumātao, the Auckland Council approved the final transfer. While a significant effort to restore the mana of Te Kawerau, the current Mayor and Council are washing their hands of a similar duty to restore Te Ahiwaru.
Fletcher Residential
Fletcher likewise owe something to Ihumātao. Their cultural illiterate project makes a mockery of the Diversity Award parent company Fletcher Building won in 2018. Their New Neighbourhood - Ōruarangi website talks about a partnership with the wrong mana whenua group, Te Kawerau. They have mounted ad hominen attacks both in the Environment Court and the media against Save Our Unique Landscape (Soul) spokesperson Pania Newton, cynically funded a site Protect Ihumātao mirroring the Soul’s campaign web address and cut off microphones when Fletcher shareholders from Soul spoke at their 2017 AGM.
Description automatically generatedFletcher have not properly considered the appropriateness of building 480 houses on historic land containing wāhi tapu across the road from the people from whom the land was confiscated. Sited between the Ihumātao papakāinga and the stonefields, the development divides tangata whenua from their heritage.
Fletcher have made much of offers to return eight hectares and reserve 40 homes to mana whenua. As a blank buffer between the development and stonefields the land is an empty gesture. Te Warena Taua, upon whom Fletcher’s facade of partnership rests, has acknowledged that there is no guarantee that tangata whenua would purchase the new houses let alone retain them long term.
Moreover, despite the protocols for wāhi tapu, with potentially over 1000 non-iwi people on the land, history shows there will be no real protection from desecrating burial caves. Previous owners, the Wallace family, dumped rubbish in at least one urupā cave, and in 1940 a family member took a sugar bag filled with human bones to a local school show and tell. The caves have not been fully explored. Fletcher should do the right thing, abandon the project, apologise and contribute one-third by reduced sale or swap for other Council land.
Labour’s Foreshore and Seabed Moment
Morgan Godfrey has aptly called Ihumātao Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern’s ‘foreshore and seabed moment’. Now widely regarded as a mistake, in 2005, Helen Clark, concerned about a white backlash at the polls, chose to pull back from supporting justice on the foreshore and seabed issue. Labour lost seats to the Māori Party and their hold on the parliamentary benches.
The rhetoric of Ardern’s colleagues shows they too are concerned about a Pākehā backlash. Whatever unfolds, there will be a backlash because racism is predictable, unintelligent and ill-formed. The facts justify action. To step back will augur a significant loss of confidence by Māori in the credibility and niceness of Labour and its Māori caucus.
The shamble of misunderstandings among our politicians requires attention. Thankfully, Labour is introducing New Zealand and Māori history into the primary and secondary curriculum. MPs should attend classes. One wishes teachers good luck in choosing the classroom monitor."
