The cops have been called in and battle lines have been drawn. The mana whenua of Ihumātao have called on their friends and allies to protect this sacred land from destruction and desecration.
In Episode 24, we spoke to Pania Newton from SOUL, one of the leaders of the land protection movement. You can listen to the episode here: Peoples-politburo – Episode-24-protect-ihumatao-an-interview-with-pania-newton-other-shpp-nonsense
In this episode, Ti and Emmy discuss the recent developments, the use of police, as well as community and government responses.
Speaking from the barricades at Ihumātao, Emmy gives an inspiration retelling of the story of struggle so far.
We hope this will be the first part of an ongoing, daily series from the front lines at Ihumātao.
