Who will look after the water?

Native Affairs last night had a special on water. Fantastic and is repeated on Friday at 10pm. They looked at all aspects including the battles in Te Wai Pounamu around irrigation, dams and pollution.

Let maori look after the water, as one environmentalist said, Pakeha have been responsible for the last 100 years or so and look at where we have got to. It's all about money with no thought about the future.

Let maori take their rightfull place as kaitiaki of our water, we successfully managed, loved and looked after our waterways for generations, we can do it again.

When they built the benmore dam, some of our best rock art was destroyed - my question is how is that different from the Taleban destroying the Buddhas?

What will be destroyed today if the 'developers' get their way? And who will stop them?
