Tame Feeling the Love on
Te Ururoa Flavell is delighted
that Tame Iti has been successful in his parole hearing
“Tame tweeted recently that he hoped to receive
some love from the parole board – it is awesome that his
wish has come true,” says Flavell.
“There is no doubt
that Tame has made a significant impact on the inmates that
he has worked with in his time in Te Ao Mārama Unit at
Waikeria Prison, so I am sure he will be missed by them.
However, I know that his whānau will be rapt that he will
soon be home in the heart of Tūhoe.”
“The next step
is to await the outcome of the Supreme Court as they
consider Tame’s appeal. I certainly hope that there is
closure for him

On Gaza And Burning The Israeli Flag
One of the selling points in New Zealand’s campaign for a temporary seat on the Security Council is that we have a pluckily independent voice to offer on international conflicts.

On April 14, 1994, New Zealand, Nigeria and the Czech Republic were the only nations to call for a forceful UN intervention to halt the killings. It was a proud moment in the diplomatic record of the Bolger government.
What then, is the current National government doing with respect to the slaughter in Gaza? More>>
