CA Paakiwaha

10.00am – 12.00pm

Paakiwaha is an exciting weekly two hour current affairs program hosted by Willie Jackson and featuring topical national kaupapa from a Māori perspective.
Since it began in 2002, Paakiwaha has made a key contribution to Waatea's vision of providing a Māori current affairs format in English, a forum that provides a uniquely Māori  perspective on issues affecting primarily Māori, but ultimately all New Zealanders.
The aim has always been to provide opportunities for listeners to have a better understanding of kaupapa that may not get fair treatment on mainstream media, while allowing Māori and non-Māori  to engage in critical debates on those issues.

No amount of dollars will be able to fix what happened to Teina Pora
WILLIE JACKSON: Teina Pora has not been compensated appropriately, twenty one years in jail and $2.5million plus an apology just doesn’t seem to add up.
Pora case is a study in structural racism
MARTYN 'BOMBER' BRADBURY: I believe it is impossible to seriously critique the terrible miscarriage of justice against Teina Pora without revealing the naked structural racism still at the heart of our colonial justice system.
The legacy of punitive policies is homelessness.
CLAUDETTE HAUITI: Minister Bennett wouldn’t have visited with Te Puea kainga-kore whanau themselves, the media mob hovering around her meant privacy issues would’ve kicked in. But if she had, Minister Bennett would’ve come face to face with her punitive reforms.
