"Everything faded into mist. The past was erased, the erasure was forgotten, the lie became the truth."
George Orwell - 1984

Orwell's words are a haunting reminder of what may happen with the passage of the immoral and unlawful Foreshore and Seabed Bill this week.

Our tangata whenua status and the associated rights and obligations are being attacked as we speak and complicit in these acts of shame are a number of Maori Members of Parliament who have forsaken their people in favour of their own self interest and are supporting the unilateral confiscation of our lands. They like many of their colleagues wish Maori to erase the memories of our past and substitute them with a promise of a future where we have no special place in this country; no turangawaewae; no whakapapa that is able to be recalled to time, place and people.

Let them be reassured, we will not forget, we will not be erased, their lies will be exposed for the untruths they are and that the tangata whenua of this land will remain inextricably linked from land to sky from sky to land.
