Mighty River People's Power gathering Hamilton whanau to attend Turangawaewae hui
Mighty River People's Power will be proud to attend the asset sales hui at Turangawaewae this Thursday.
'We have an action or two before the hui to raise its profile', says member Alvina Edwards.
'Our group has a bottom line - no asset sales! Not yours to sell!'
We are going to Ngaruawahia as grass roots Maori and Pakeha, and to get our message across, but we are rallying ALL whanau to come and join us.
"The asset sales waka is sinking and Maori need to unite to through some rocks in, to make it sink, and put the asset sales to bed."
The group is keeping mum about an action or two they have lined up this week, but is calling on Waikato communities to take this opportunity to fight asset sales - rally, sign the petition etc.
'The eyes of the nation will be on us on Thursday and Friday.'
It's our job to tell the nation that Mighty River Power is not for sale. The dams are our heritage. We want Maori and Pakeha to make their voices heard together.
Who is Mighty River People's power?
The group organised the Waikato leg of the Hikoi to stop asset sales in April 2012.
It is also responsible for halting a meeting at the Casino to organise asset sales, run by investment bankers Forsythe Barr.
