Mana leader Hone Harawira says it will take more than the half day the prosecution is setting aside to defend himself on charges stemming from a protest against the removal of state houses in Glen Innes.

The Tai Tokerau MP was remanded to March 19 for hearing on the charge of blocking a police car.

As Harawira entered the court, members of the Glen Innes State Housing Action Group, held up a banner which read ‘No tolerance for Corporate Greed’.

As security moved in, the judges said the banner could as long as those holding it remained silent. Mr Harawira caused consternation by answering the charges in Te Reo Māori, wished the court resolved by asking Māori Television Presenter Heeni Brown to translate.

Harawira said he didn’t agree with what the government was doing with state houses in Glen Innes, didn’t agree with the way police acted on the October night when he was arrested and he didn’t agree with the government trampling on the spirits of the people.

He said he will defend himself in March and he will have a lot to say.

Bye Bye Bunny
WILLIE JACKSON OPINION: “He wasn’t just NZ class, he was world class”, that’s what one of this country’s finest singers Frankie Stevens said about Bunny Walters after his death last week.
Ka kite John Key
WILLIE JACKSON OPINION: What a week in politics, it seems beyond belief that we now have a new Prime Minister, the John Key resignation caught everyone by surprise, so much so that it still doesn’t quite make sense for me.
