Support The Foreshore And Seabed Hikoi

Support The Foreshore And Seabed Hikoi

The hikoi which left the far north on Thursday 23 April to join with others along the way, and which is taking the message to Parliament about opposition to the Government policy on the foreshore and seabed will be passing through Auckland on Tuesday 27th and Wednesday 28th April. We need as many pakeha/tauiwi as possible to join in this hikoi so that the government can see that it is not just Maori who oppose this policy.
