Give Tribe Full Ownership of River - Libertarianz

PRESS RELEASE

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

'Give Tribe Full Ownership of River' says Libertarianz

Libertarianz supports full ownership of the Whanganui River being transferred to the Atihaunui A Paparangi tribe - not the so-called 'partnership' of state and tribe the Waitiangi tribunal recommends, but a full and final creation of an ownership right in this river, and in every other river, lake, forest, mountain and waterway in New Zealand.

"The main issue to me is not to whom property rights in the river are transferred to," says Libertarianz Environment Deregulation Spokesman Peter Cresswell, "the important thing is that a property right in the river is being created."

Property rights protect the interests of the property owners - as people who have had their land confiscated should understand - and protects the environment in the process.

The environment needs to be de-politicised as crucially as does the economy. Creating property rights in rivers - and getting the state out of them - would be a crucial first step.
