Ken Mair On Radio in Montreal

CKUT Radio, Montreal, on foreshore and seabed struggle

CKUT Radio with Ken Mair and Cherryl Waerea-i-te-rangi Smith: Maori struggles for justice against latest New Zealand government landgrab

Listen to Maori sovereignty advocates Ken Mair and Cherryl Waerea-i-te-rangi Smith speak with Aziz Choudry about current struggles against the New Zealand Government's proposed legislation to vest the foreshore and seabed with the Crown - undermining Maori customary title and tino rangatiratanga (sovereignty).

This interview was recorded as Maori (and non-Maori supporters) hikoi (march) through the country against the foreshore and seabed legislation which some are describing as the worst example of confiscation by the Crown in Aotearoa (New Zealand) since the 1800s.

This interview exposes claims by the governments of New Zealand and Canada claims to be addressing the rights of Indigenous Peoples in a just manner to be PR spin. It also draws parallels between Indigenous Peoples' struggles for self-determination, and 21st century modes of colonial government in both places.

The interview was recorded and broadcast by CKUT Radio (Montreal - http://www.ckut.ca) on 26 April 2004
