Skepticism over Government’s olive branch at Auckland’s Ihumātao protest site

Ihumātao protesters are skeptical over Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern’s assurance that construction will stop until their voice is heard.

Ardern made the announcement on Friday, saying the Government would step in to help broker talks over the disputed land in Auckland’s Mangere, working with mana whenua and Fletcher Building.

Protest leader Pania Newton from Save Our Unique Landscape (Soul) said it was disappointing to hear Ardern had organised a hui without the Soul activists.

On Sunday, the marae was still debating if members would meet with Tāmaki Makaurau MP Peeni Henare and Employment Minister Willie Jackson, who arrived on site on Saturday to extend a branch of peace.

“We will debate on whether we will meet with them or not,” Newton said.

Soul was calling on the Government to intervene to prevent confrontation but Newton said did not know if she should trust Ardern’s statement that construction had been paused.

“We don’t know that for sure [if construction will stop], that’s just what they’ve said. We haven’t been consulted with,” she said.

“We need to sit at the table.”

Meanwhile the cops are serenading them in an act of defiance of Cindy and her stupid announcement.

  1. This is another frightening development in a huge list of many, since the irresponsible col took over. Winny, stupid girl and their lot along with the gunts lot will go down in history taking the country to the depths of ruin. Stupid girl then leaves the country after allowing a group of rebel rousing law breakers to take over a piece of land they have no right to. Thought this govt were all for building houses etc. WTF is going on in their heads?

  2. Jacinda has flip flopped rather dramatically here- Amazing that nobody in the gutless Media seems willing to call it….
    She is a piss weak leader.
    Be afraid- This rabble of activists and gangmembers might be eyeing up the Section your family home is on next….

  3. And once again- Police are supposed to be Politically Neutral.
    By showing support for the protest (while in uniform) that Cop is in breach of his Code of Conduct.

  4. So, no respect for property rights, direct conflict to the housing crisis, no neutrality from the police and trying to get payment for the same piece of land a second or third time; by people from outside the full and final settlement against the wishes of the local Iwi who wants this development to continue?

    The should bin Shortland Street and make this into a soap opera instead.

  5. So trespassing is legal now? If i squatted on your land, would a 100 cops stand there and not arrest me? Next thing is that ALL properties will be sacred sites. Talk about scaring off investment and worsening an already dismal business outlook…

    • Fletchers will probably be very happy take a big payout from the Government and be rid of this vexatious project.

      • Which would be a shame as it would open up a can of worms and less houses will be built. Tread carefully…oh wait this is the Col after all!

  6. I just hope that this issue wakes most kiwis up to the fact that the COL is useless and needs to go at the next election or before.
    No leadership at all.

      • Well Cindy did ban plastic shopping bags at the behest of letters from little school children. The fact that the bags only accounted for 0.1% of our landfill sites didn’t ring any bells with the accidental PM. She is all about the feelz and virtue signalling. A real can of worms setting a terrible precedent at the will of Pania whats-her-name and her FB protesters will be beyond resolving by Cindy and she will only make it worse if she gets further involved. It’s a total fiasco for the COL. LOL!!

  7. This is not going to end well for anyone. The land was sold to a private developer. Now Cindy has stopped this company from going about it’s lawful business, (just like the gun owners) The next step is the treaty settlemnt process to be able to TAKE private land as part of reparations to maori.

    Be very afraid New Zealand. Give these socialists a chance and they will take any steps to impliment their socialist communist policies.
    Guns- Gone
    Land ownnership- under threat.

    I HATE THIS FUCKING GOVERNMENT.

    • Wait until we see their impending rules on curbing free speech (im sure there is a working group or 10 beavering away on that) then we will see just how far down the rabbit hole this COL are willing to try and take us

      • I went to a Seminar/Discussion with my local Labour MP re ‘Freedom of Speech’.
        His entire rhetoric was ‘We need to shut down Right Wing sites and Opinions’.
        Pretty much anything that didn’t follow a hard left Labour/Green narrative was ‘Hate Speech’ in his mind.
        We have lurched far closer toward Stalinism/North Korea than many people realise…

  9. Please do not call me cynical but everything I have read about Ihumatao suggests that one group of Maori got decent koha and now every other group of Maori want, and are screaming for, their bit of koha.

    • They get “koha” every damn Tuesday, or is it Wednesday? You know, the day all of the sudden the KFC and liquor stores have extra long queues…

    • Perhaps if Treaty settlements had trickled down there might not be the resentment, but we know that that hasn’t happened.

      That is not ‘our’ fault. Full and final should mean just that.

    • Hold that thought, the Govt. will claim the houses as Kiwibuild despite having not even had the conversation with Fletcher before now. Housing NZ precinct? The adjoining history would no doubt be respected then.

    • Ardern “I don’t know what you are talking about”. She walks away…

      Watch the filthy look her assistant gives the journalist who asked her the question about denying access to her.
