Listen Today to Paakiwaha on Radio Waatea

Listen today to Paakiwaha, an exciting weekly current affairs programme with a Maori perspective. Paakiwaha is hosted by Willie Jackson and broadcast by Radio Waatea with funding from New Zealand on Air.

Winston Peters explains why he is trying to get all references to the principles of the Treaty removed from all legislation and if his ‘Principles of the Treaty of Waitangi Deletion Bill will succeed. A Treaty expert will also comment on the Bill. Some 40 Ngati Whatua residents are resisting eviction from homes that are being demolished to make way for upmarket rental townhouses owned by the tribe; Willie talks to one of the protestors. Last week, a 49-day occupation by some members of Ngati Aukiwa ended peacefully, but with two men arrested. Wilfred Pederson (Bully) from Ngati Aukiwa speaks out about why they occupied the land known as Waikohatu.

Our Arts Feature guest is Aroha Harris, author of the recently published book, ‘Hikoi, Forty Years of Maori Protest.’ Sports commentator Ken Laban gives a sports roundup for the week and Qantas media award winner and political reporter Duncan Garner tells us his predictions for the week. So tune into yet another lively, thought provoking and debate packed programme!

On Radio Waatea (603AM) in Auckland and Te Upoko o Te Ika in Wellington (1161AM) on Mondays 10am-12pm And on Radio Waatea (Auckland 603AM) Saturdays 1pm-3pm. Or click on at the above times.
