In a very low voter turnout, Hone Harawira has won the Te Tai Tokerau byelection. Congratulations Hone!
Together, Mana & Greens have the ability to drag Labour over to supporting tino rangatiratanga and clawing back the devil takes hindmost neoliberal ideology that has driven both Labour and National for the last 25 years.
So let’s work together for that end, and to restore kaitiatitanga over our most precious and treasured lands and waterways.
And maybe the disastrous polling for the Maori Party (less than 10% of the vote) may give them cause to reassess their alliance with the Party that is the class enemy of most New Zealanders, be they Tangata Whenua or Tangata Tiriti.
Kia ora, Hone! Kia kaha, e hoa ma.
