Korero Mai Ki Ahau: Summary 2 & 3 march

Broadcast on
Saturday 12.00 - 12.30pm
Sunday 12.00 - 12.30pm
both shows repeated from 5pm onwards

Saturday 02 March 2013 12:00 - Willie Te Aho
Over this past week the Supreme Courts decision ruled against the NZ Maori Councils claim that the sale of shares of Mighty River was a breach of the Treaty of Waitangi with a statement saying "The partial privatisation of Mighty River Power will not impair to a material extent the Crown's ability to remedy any Treaty breach in respect of Maori interests,"

The surprising thing was John Keys government, The Mana Party and the NZ Maori Council all claimed victory in either all, or indeed parts of the decision.

Korero Mai Ki Ahau host Eruera Morgan speaks with high profile treaty lawyer Willie Te Aho, who breaks it all down for discussing how this ruling will affect other treaty claims, and the precedent it sets with Maori ownership claims to other taonga tuku iho, such as spectrum and intellectual property. Eruera also speaks with Taranaki Kaumatua and long time advocate for Maori rights Huirangi Waikererpuru, who is very clear in a Maori sense with regards to the concept of Maori claims to water and tells us why he thinks the Supreme Court ruling is not only wrong but unjust.

Sunday 03 March 2013 12:00 - Dr Ranginui Walker
Earlier this week, controversial Tuhoe activist Tame Iti was released from Waikeria Prison after serving 9 months of a 2 and a half year prison sentence on firearms charges, part of the notorious 2007 Urewera Raids.

His incarceration has led to him being viewed by many as a political prisoner, a result of Tame’s many years of protest action around Maori rights and Maori sovereignty.
Also this week the Pakaitore anniversary, when W'anganui manaw'enua occupied Moutoa Gardens, came and went almost unnoticed.
We take a timely look at the history of the contemporary Maori protest movement and speak with author of Ka Whawhai Tonu Maatou, Dr Ranginui Walker about the growth of Maori political power and pose the question - with the advent of The Maori Party and the emergence of The Mana Party is there still room for protest and the likes of Tame Iti.

Korero Mai Ki Ahau
