Occupation of Department of Corrections
13 June 2002
We the youth of Nga Puhi demand:
- the immediate resignation of the Minister of Corrections, Matt Robson, on the grounds of personal racism and the desecration of the sacred grounds at Ngawha;
- that the Department of Corrections and their contractors must stop construction immediately and withdraw from the Ngawha site. All government representatives will be treated as trespassers and dealt with accordingly by Nga Taitamariki ki o Nga Puhi.
We the youth of Nga Puhi abhor the continued lack of consideration and understanding, and the re-interpretation of our cultural values, by the NZ government, their departments and legal system.
We see the Ngawha prison development as an act of terrorism against Tangata Whenua and an act of terrorism against the sacred whenua.
Statement from Nga Taitamariki ki o Nga Puhi, 13 June 2002. Currently occupying the Head Office, Dept of Corrections, Mayfair House, 44 - 52 The Terrace, Wellington.
