Scoop Acquires Copy Of Axe Activists’ Message


Scoop Acquires Copy Of Axe Activists’ Message

Scoop has acquired a copy of a message found by Police near Ponsonby Road Auckland early yesterday morning after an axe was driven deep into a window-frame fronting the Prime Minister’s electorate office. The message, issued from a group claiming to be Pakeha-based, said the attack symbolised the shattered trust between the Crown and the people.

Scoop here publishes the message in verbatim:

-------

Confiscation Day

This morning concerned Pakeha vented their anger and disgust at the Government’s attempts to steal, by confiscation, Maori land in the form of the Seabed and Foreshore Bill that is currently being disgracefully rammed through Parliament as part of a desperate back-room deal.

By attacking the electorate office of the chief instigator, the Prime Minister – who is due to abandon the mess she created by fleeing the country today – we signal that a threshold has been crossed.

The broken glass symbolises the broken faith, broken trust and shattered justice, our axe symbolises the steadfastness of our determination.

The ruthless Prime Minister will leave behind a vindictive law that will haunt this nation should the M.Ps be mad enough to pass it. Maori M.Ps complicit in this farce will never live down their betrayal.

If this is destined to be Confiscation Day, then we have marked it.

We call upon all like-minded New Zealanders to take similar action of their own to send a clear message that such a gross, blatantly racist injustice to the Maori people will never be accepted.

Ake! Ake! Ake!
