This week, Waatea News Editor Dave Kaire graces us with his presence, and we present a Waitangi Wrap Special

Saturday 09 February 2013 12:00 – Waireti Walters, Pita Paraone - Waitangi Day 2013

Dave talks with Ngapuhi kuia Waireti Walters about the role that wahine should be fulfilling at Waitangi during Waitangi Day celebrations, and would the furore around who should be escorting main dignitaries onto Te Tii marae, have eventuated if wahine were indeed in charge.
Pita Paraone – Chairman of Treaty of Waitangi Grounds, Chairman of Waitangi Day – Operations
Minister of Maori Development Pita Sharples raised some eyebrows when he suggested to move the celebrations to the upper marae to stop the protests and all the disruptions. Dave talks with Waitangi marae chairman Pita Paraone about this.


Sunday 10 February 2013 12:00 – Ngawai Herewini, Hone Sadler - Waitangi Day 2013

Ngawai Herewini - Broadcaster of Te Hiku Media

Maori television has copped some flak over their coverage of the celebrations at Waitangi from the likes of Titewhai and Hone Harawira. They’re both accusing the channel of following mainstream medias focus on just the negative aspects of the day.
Ngawai Herewini, who has been part of iwi stations coverage of each Waitangi Day gives her view, along with an eye witness account of the things we never saw or heard at Waitangi.

Hone Sadler – Ngapuhi Academic
And finally, Hone Sadler wraps this year’s Waitangi Day. The highs, the lows, the ups and downs of what was Waitangi Day 2013.

Korero Mai Ki Ahau a half hour features programme every Saturday and Sunday from noon, which takes an in – depth look at issues affecting te ao Maori. Totally in te reo Maori brought to you by Waatea News in association with Te Mangai Paho.

Ma Waatea ma te reo hei whakamarama


Both shows will be available as podcast on our website: waateanews.com

Gordon Campbell:
On The Greens Proposal To Gradually Lift The Minimum Wage

Heading into the election home stretch, voters have a clear choice about the best way to help low and middle income New Zealanders. They can do so by gradually lifting the minimum wage (as the Greens propose) or by a small tax cut, as the government seems about to announce.

The minimum wage boost – by 75 cents an hour to $15 in December, and then by gradual annual increments to $18 an hour by 2017 – that the Greens are talking about is just one part of a packet of employment measures that would include scrapping youth rates and the 90 day trial period, introducing a redundancy package of four weeks, offsetting any abatement effect of the policy package for those receiving Working For Families, and finally… ditching the exception made by the government (during the Hobbit negotiations) for workers in the screen industry, which denies them normal workplace safeguards and entitlements.

Gordon Campbell: On The Debate, And The Collins Accusation

Debating is a peculiar discipline in that what you say is less important than how you’re saying it. Looking poised, being articulate and staying on topic generally wins the day – and on that score, Labour leader David Cunliffe won what turned out to be a bruising encounter with Prime Minister John Key last night on TVNZ.
