There have been a number of examples of desecration of taonga over recent days and now this - freedom campers shitting on a pa site - FFS - listen up freedom campers - your goddam arse is going to fall off for this type of offence.
From EMMA DANGERFIELD - The Marlborough Express
"Freedom campers have desecrated a pa site in Kaikoura with human waste.
Te Runanga O Kaikoura member Maurice Manawatu of Maori Tours Kaikoura visits the site daily as the starting point of a cultural tour.
"I am fuming," he says. "The whanau is really upset too. It's just desecration of land that was gifted to the community and it's not on."
The pa holds important cultural significance for Maori and is a place where many visitors go to understand the area's native history, with its fortified walls, now raised mounds of grass, telling the story of how the area was once protected.
One German tourist spoken to on Monday who had been sleeping in his car at the pa, suggested facilities in Scarborough St needed to be "improved" to prevent people such as him from using the bushes as toilets.
The man, who declined to be named, said he had camped at the pa because there was no sign telling him not to.Nice one german tourist - another fine example of arrogance and stupidity. I suppose you have a shit next to stonehenge do you?
it is very simple - if they abuse maori hospitality then send them back to where they came from. The almighty dollar is nothing compared to respecting maori culture. How long is this going to go on? How long?
