Mana leader Hone Harawira says Prime Minister John Key has deliberately set the stage for protest at Waitangi.
The former Te Taitokerau MP, who joined today’s march against the signing of the Trans Pacific Partnership Agreement in Auckland, says that protest now moves back to the north.
He says the TPPA is a treaty between governments and corporate from which the citizens of the 12 countries have been ignored and kept in the dark.
"The Prime Minister seems happy to not only sign it but to sign it two days before the Treaty of Waitangi Day and then come to Waitangi Day and expect to get a pat on the back for it. No, I think he's asking for trouble. I think he's created a flashpoint and I think he needs to answer for his actions, " says Hone Harawira.
The Prime Minister is due to be welcomed on to Te Tii Marae in Waitangi tomorrow morning, after the arrival of the hikoi.
