From Hauraki Iwi
"Iwi chairs working with the Government on an alternative to the Foreshore and Seabed Act have summoned all iwi to an urgent hui in Auckland on Friday.
Mark Solomon of Ngai Tahu told Waatea News the aim is to get a national consensus on a replacement framework for coastal management.
He says the short notice was unavoidable, because the Attorney-General is taking a proposal to Cabinet next Monday.
The hui is at the Ellerslie Event Centre from noon on Friday.I hope we don't dance to their tune all the time and actually start getting some of our own tunes in there - for them to dance to.
Why the urgency and why are maori saying "how high sir" when they say "jump".
Something is not right here.
