We Will Take From Them The Beaches

We Will Take From Them The Foreshore;

We Will Take From Them The Islands;

We Will Take From Them The Water;

We Will Take From Them The Land;

We Will Take From Them The Rivers;

We Will Take From Them The Mountains;

We Will Push Them Into The Sea.

Is this the National Party government’s death knell? How could anyone other than those in the blues seeking election actually vote for National?

MARINE AND COASTAL AREA APPLICATION

You are hereby notified that Cletus Maanu Paul, on behalf of all Maori, has applied for recognition of customary marine title and protected customary rights (rangatiratanga, kaitiakitanga and all ancillary activities) over the entire area of New Zealand, including all islands to the outer limits of the territorial sea; and, the Marine and Coastal Area surrounding all islands and reefs lying off shore from the coastline to a distance of 12 nautical miles; and, the entire foreshore and territorial waters of New Zealand under the Marine and Coastal Area Act 2011. Notices of appearance in support or in opposition to the applications must be filed by Friday 30 June 2017 in the Rotorua High Court.

And if that snatch for the entire country doesn’t work, then the khaki mafioso will aim to take it from you, piece-by-piece. Of course, it’s likely that this is not only the tip of the iceberg, but a distraction. It is not necessary for such applications to go through the high court.

All the greedy grabbers need to do is cosy up to whanau Whinlayson, behind the closed doors of his office, to get what they want – by the back door – literally. Perhaps he did turn the cuzzies down on some, because even he couldn’t stomach the mendacious temerity of the claim? Or perhaps he was worried that – come September – the voters might be reminded of his treachery?

An Earlier 1Law4All Blog Post on This Matter

13 thoughts on “We Will Take From Them The Beaches

    1. I tried commenting in STUFF on the RMA Bill introduced by Nick Smith giving iwi unelected membership on local body committees etc. all comments were blocked. Mainstream media will not publish on breaches of democracy except to ridicule Winston Peters. Peter’s statement about abolishing reference to Maori in all legislation is almost never reported upon by the media. Brainwashing has been very effective when the media self censor in a so-called democracy.

  1. There no sense in fighting this stuff directly. Just don’t vote National or Labour. Tell as many people as possible. The mainstream media won’t touch this but maybe someone has a way of breaking the media barrier and raising public awareness.

  2. The only way of beating this is “Sorry,” we all have to vote NZ First Winston Peters into power so his party can block all this Maori money draining nonsense and get common sense back into play.

    1. Do not be seduced by the rhetoric. Winston’s had his chances before. Even when NZ1st had seventeen MPs in parliament, all its pre-election talk became much ado about nothing.

      1. So what do you recommend? No vote?

        Maybe as mentioned above we should just leave?

        Where is this country going. Worst case scenario does not look good, but it probably wont get there in the short-term.

        Messed up!

        1. Not voting at all doesn’t seem like a good idea – for now. It’s probably to soon to make a suggestion about who to vote / not vote for. Give it a month or two.

          1. Can some default email/letter be put together with unique CIV number, so then all the average joes like me can then just send this on?

            Or can we not claim on behalf of all CIVs?

            Seems strange that we have to oppose it, more onus should be put on them at proving such claim. tks

          2. There are a few insights here: http://www.hobsonspledge.nz/marine_and_coastal_area_act

            Note the comment about the process being a diversion, a feint, a ploy designed to distract the public from the secret deals being cooked up behind closed doors with whanau fullah Whinlayson.

            If a template can be organised to use with each appropriate application, it will be posted here.

            EDIT
            The information in the Hobson’s Pledge newsletter was incomplete. The objection process is fraught and costs over $100 just to lodge and would likely require a personal appearance in court or the use of a barrister.

            It is possible that – stress and fee-free – it will be possible for objectors to ‘join’ the Council of Outdoor Recreation Associations of New Zealand (CORANZ) either as a party or a witness in the CORANZ objection.

  3. I sent this email to most in my address book, I had one angry response from a person who I would have not expected it. My reply: any one who is not interested is supportive of, or turning a blind eye to, racism.

  4. I see the Herald is saying there are now 550+ claims. Link to NZ Herald in comment 8. Minister Finlayson seems to be pooh-poohing the whole thing. Now 550+ legal claims on New Zealand coast and seas by Maori organizations

    Surely there is no way the High Court can handle this avalanche and only allow citizens the stated times in which to object or oppose a claim. Kiwis should be filing the High Court Form G 33 “Notice of Opposition” in their thousands.

    1. Don’t trust Findlayson. He has too much to loose as he intends to return to being a Treaty settlement lawyer, once his current position is ended.
