“Treasury tells us there are 285,000 kids living in poverty, the Ministry of Health tells us that 100,000 of them are going to school hungry every day … and the Prime Minister tells us he wants to change the flag!”
“For heaven’s sake, what does it take to get this government to focus on the real issues?” asked Hone Harawira, MANA Leader and MP for Te Tai Tokerau.
“Eliminating child poverty, homes for all families and jobs for everyone – those are the real issues , not the flag” said Harawira. “Hungry kids can’t eat a flag.”
