Hone Harawira | Open letter to President Barack Obama
Opening lines of a letter sent to the US President Hey hey, mah bruddah!! Heard you were able to get back to your dads turangawaewae last week. Mean ! hope you had a good catch up with the whanau.I also hear you're getting ready to endorse the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPPA), and I'm asking that you hold off, for now anyway. You might not know who I am and that's OK because I'm not that important in the scheme of things, but my people are. We're Maori, the indigenous people of a little country down here in the South Pacific called Aotearoa - you probably know it as New Zealand - and we want you to know that we don't support the TPPA; in fact we hate the bloody thing.

Not a great outlook to be considering especially as we begin to celebrate a year that marks 40 years since the beginning of Te Wiki o Te Reo Maori” states Te Reo Tuatahi spokesperson, Raewyn Harrison.

More Finnians please.
WILLIE JACKSON: It was fabulous to hear a pakeha kid talking about how important it is to pronounce Maori in the last few days particularly given the fact that this is Maori language week.
Is Serco abuse racist?
MARTYN BRADBURY: The appalling intimidation, violence, organised fight clubs, rapes, assault, and one possible death that has been highlighted at the privately run prison at Mt Eden carries with it an unspoken racism.
Amazing hypocrisy
WILLIE JACKSON: Labour’s housing spokesman Phil Twyford has dominated the nations political debate with the release of figures showing that despite Chinese residents making up only nine percent of the Auckland population, house buyers with Chinese surnames brought just under forty percent of the houses sold in Auckland in a three month period earlier this year.
