GUEST BLOG: Hone Harawira – Hikoi go home

Statement from Hone Harawira in relation to the proposed S.H.O.T. Hikoi due to march to Waitangi.
This Hikoi is a scam, organised and run by Pakeha Anti-Vaxxers.
There is no invitation from Waitangi Marae, no invitation from the Waitangi Treaty Grounds, no invitation from Ngati Kawa or Ngati Rahiri, and no invitation from Ngāpuhi.
With the Covid outbreak in Northland, there is no invitation extended to unvaccinated outsiders to come to the Tai Tokerau.
If you wish to honour Te Wakaputanga, hikoi to where YOUR tupuna signed it.
If you want to criticise the governments vaccination program, march to Wellington.
Nga mihi,
Hone Harawira
Tai Tokerau Border Control

    • Hi nukefacts. If it hadn’t been for Labour and NZF doing a bit of DP by colluding and throwing everything at it Hone would still be there. I still can’t forgive them for that. Mana was a better Party to have in Parliament than Peters First.

    • Hone Harawira, has always stood on the right side of history.

      The government surrendered to the virus.

      http://norightturn.blogspot.com/2021/10/surrendering-to-virus.html

      When the people could see the virus was being eliminated there were hardly any protests, or even very few rule breakers.

      All these protests didn’t start until after the goverment abandoned their highly successful elimination strategy. and infections started heading toward the sky.

      The TVNZ graph in the link shows it all.

      https://asiapacificreport.nz/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/TVNZ-graph-101021-680wide.png

      From about August 30, and a high of 83 cases a day, by September 29, the contagion was being crushed to below ten cases a day. According to the health experts another 2 weeks of continued full lockdown in Auckland and the transmission of the virus would probably have been eliminated entirely.

      But on August 21, under pressure from business, the government lifted the Level 4 Alert. The next day 200,000 Aucklanders were ordered back to work. Eight days later, (which is the incubation period of the virus), daily infections started shooting up and they haven’t stopped increasing ever since.

      Instead of being honest about their decision to abandon the elimination as the cause of the increase in cases,, the government and media started lieing, blaming gangs and sex workers and rough sleepers and a minority of rule breakers for the steep rise in cases.

      Most of these accusations turned out to be false.

      It was always known that if the virus got into these marginalised communities it would be devastating. Covid infections in these communities is not the cause of the rise in cases, but a symptom of it.

      The two alleged sex workers who toured Northland under false documents didn’t lead to a major outbreak. A preventative Level 3 Lockdown prompted by this case of rule breaking was later dropped back to Level 2.

      What the liars in the government and media can’t or won’t explain is why, if the minority of rule breakers and marginalised communities are the cause of the rise in cases after they dropped the Level 4 Lockdown, why didn’t the actions of this disaffected minority had no affect when the Level 4 Lockdown was in place?

      Let’s be clear, the two alleged sex workers who toured Northland, at the other end of the social scale, the two millionaire horse breeders who broke lockdown to fly to Queenstown, neither of these two breaches led to a major outbreak.

      The figures are very clear it was the government decision to lift the Level 4 Lockdown in Auckland that led to the current uncontrolled outbreak.

      The government surrender and then the following lies, blaming minority groups for their own failing, does not engender confidence in government, and stokes the insecurities and fears of the the Covid deniers and anti-vaxxers and empowered the conspiracy theorists, who had little trust in the government to begin with.

      When the virus was being crushed the anti-vaxxers and covid deniers and conspiracy theorists had no platform. It is the government surrender and lieing that has given political room to these conspiracy theories. 

      Hone Harawira has always been on the right side of History. While the government politicians surrendering and lieing and making excuses and blaming others.

      To protect his people in Te Tai Tokerau. Hone Harawira is holding the line.

      Kia kaha, kia mana, kia ora. 

       

      • Well said Pat, sad but true about govt decision to cave to business. Actually, I remember the moment, for me it was when JK stuck his traitorous head up and thus stirred the pot. We have some truly selfish vile kiwis in AO/NZ. Thankfully there are many many who are not. I hope it’s the majority

  1. Good to know!

    Maori desperately need to organise, as their seems to be a neo colonist attitude, starting with, you speak Te Reo, so you speak for Maori, or you own a business with a Te Reo name, so are free to appropriate Maori cultural capital (and seek government funding) or individuals with Maori links, are used to culturally ‘wash’ business decisions, social decisions (Oranga Tamariki, Meth “rehabilitation”) and resource consents, that don’t seem to speak very well for Maori cultural views and interests but tick that box for the neoliberals and lazy government who understand nothing about traditional Maori values but found a way to even appropriate that, in Maori name!

    Bring back Mana! If ACT can go from 1% to 16%, then so can Mana, dirty politics is less effective now as they have already destroyed voter trust from the previous breaches.

    • Nearly all the ones I saw on the lunch time TV news certainly looked Maori.
      It’s hard to say for sure though because, believe it or not, there is no official definition either; government forms ask for what ethnicity you “identify with”, I asked once what they meant by “identify with” and got some incomprehensible nonsense in reply. It must be like the gender self identification bill, no such thing as a man or women, you are what you think or imagine yourself to be.
      Perversely, at least as far as the health statistics go, if you write down two ethnicities, say European and Maori or Asian and Maori you’re automatically deemed to be a Maori. I’ve some modest amount of Maori ancestry but don’t consider myself a Maori, nor do people that meet me. Being of mixed ethnicity I would be entered in the system as Maori. Very confusing and makes the statistics unreliable to the point of meaninglessness.

    • second your comment (re:government funding etc) If it is fashionable and lucrative to be maori there will be a lot of strange bedfellows.

      • Seriously? Get a grip.. This country was built, once the dominance required to exploit the natural resources was established, with the English class divisions at it’s core… Where have you been all your life? Hiding down in your local mai mai with a friendly taniwha? So what has the NZ Herald Dominion Post, Otago Daily Times etc been engaging in since their creation by the colonial government? Class war is at the base of the neoliberal regression to feudalism.. All that is class war.. A bunch of self entitled morons attempting to piggy back on the work of the northern tribes doesn’t qualify as anything but rank stupidity personified, and self entitlement based on nothing more than ego driven fantasy.. Class war.. You wouldn’t know what that is based on that statement…

  2. I admit my exposure to movies since I was kid came into play when I read of the lunacy of this group, what it was all about and who was involved. Tasers and rubber bullets?

    I had it like the scenes of the outlaws getting trapped in a pass or the terrorists spied from above in a gully and being easy fodder for the powers of good. And this mob meeting noble protectors in Dome Valley. Tasers and rubber bullets? Or people in white coats and padded wagons for a trip to padded cells?

    Tai Tokerau is best served if whatever tides wash this flotsam and jetsam away.

    • You are right about body autonomy but I don’t think you see it my way. The body is autonomous – it ultimately decides what you can do – so it is no use trying to put the mind as paramount. If the body is subverted by Covid it will get it and so will you. So be kind to your body and keep it fit with diet and mental positives and then it can help keep you happy.
      That acknowledges body-mind autonomy. Not your mates filling your head with spiteful ideas which they justify because they say the other side is worse.

  3. This is all about … Porangi Pakeha Sue Grey who is using this ‘drive-bye’hikoi’ for her own agenda, as she lost the High Court case for the sacked workers refusing the vaccine jab for their job in Tauranga. Aviation Sec.
    So the new legislation for the vaccine mandate will sort this bs out. So this car drive-by hikoi is her promoting her own agenda and bs. Pakeha will use Maori for anything! Wakey! Wakey!

    • So Grey flies into Waitangi from Blenheim to meet with, not Maori but her Freedoms & Rights Coalition and pakeha red neck farms in the North.
      Supposedly this was a hikoi for Maori when ultimately it was the staging of her fund raising efforts for her latest losses in her court proceedings and her other ventures. Qanon trump Humping advocacy.
      She is a terrorist right under the authorities noses and they do nothing.

        • Google her…she’s got a tonne of cases in the High Court and then her associations and charities she runs. A network of fuck-up entities and organisations.
          Sue Grey, Blenhiem.

  4. I suspect most for these losers are on a benefit . If they are fit enough to march and sre not looking for work it should be stopped. No use arresting or fining them as they will not pay

    • Trevor – That’s a cliche from last century. The fact that it may be part right merely highlights how others have come out with it before and with no useful outcome to be seen. Can you get some new lines for our 2021 hit parade?

    • Anti vaxxer hill billy farmers and Qanon conspiracy theorists and bestiality advocates. Sue Grey is their legal council. All pakeha. She met with 1000 of them today in Northland at a fund raiser.

  5. I can believe that. Delusional, selfish morons who don’t really understand why they are protesting. It would be hilarious if it wasn’t tragic and dangerous for Kiwis.

  6. It’s the … Porangi Pakeha Sue Grey a Trump Humping Terrorist, is using this ‘drive-bye’hikoi’ for her own agenda, as she lost the High Court case for the sacked workers refusing the vaccine jab for their job in Tauranga. Aviation Security worker.
    So the new legislation for the vaccine mandate will sort this bs out. So this car drive-by hikoi is her promoting her own agenda and bs. Pakeha will use Maori for anything! Wakey! Wakey!

    • Yes they will .
      They don’t give a shit about community well-being.
      It is the old me me me crap .
      Along with the conspiracy crap spun by the 12 USA misinformationists who have been spinning it for decades. Along with the 19 of the 20 so called christian usa websites that are supposed to be christian are actually 19 disinformation Troll farms based in Eastern Europe .

    • Good info gathering Denny. Like you say there’s always an agenda. These tossers need to return home and look after their families. Getting a jab would be a good start.

  7. Racist AF.

    i totally agree with Hone about the cultural implications of this and it being used for ‘political gain. Except that what you say is Racist in the extreme.

    If Pakeha were to call out Maori for the behaviour of the covid spreading gang thugs and their friends, that would rightly be seen as Racist. But you think it is ok to be Racist towards millions of blameless New Zealanders who have kept the faith and done the right thing just because of the actions of a few grandstanding idiots who may or may not be Pakeha. Billy TK anyone?

    BTW – I am a New Zealander, born and bred, the same as you.

  8. Well done Hone. It’s good to know some people are making a huge effort to keep their communities safe from Covid.

    The activities of this group could be endangering the health and well being of other NZers. They are well aware of the present Delta Covid situation, along with the rules, so what part of avoid public situations (if possible), social distancing, wear a mask in public and get vaccinated do they not understand?

  10. The march of the Karens…

    What people fail to get is there is no such thing as ‘Maoridom’ the iwiocracy do as much to if not more to hold down and exploit their people as any bunch of whiteys…as always it’s class not race…middle class Maori in govt funded jobs are just as big dicks as the middle class of any other shade

  11. Why do people lie?

    They say that children should be able to lie at about the age of three. Not that they should lie, but the child behavourists tell us, that lying in children is a sign of high intelligence.

    Children lie because of the huge imbalance in power between adults and children, this imbalance in power between adults and children is especially marked between adults and very young children.

    What this means is that when a child does or wants something that adults are against, but they are powerless to oppose, there is a very high incentive to hide what they have done or want from the adult.

    Mostly these lies are comical and amateur, (from the adult point of view).

    As we grow older we learn not to lie, that most lies get found out eventually. And that a much better strategy, (and even more intelligent one), is negotiation and compromise and cooperation to achieve common goals witth others. This becomes easier to achieve as we become adults and become more autonomous and the power imbalance between ourselves and others becomes less.

    Lying is an act of the powerless.

    In the end lying is a losing strategy, it is a strategy of the desperate and powerless, who feel they have no other options.

    So why do politicians lie?

    For much the same reason that children do, when there is a huge imbalance of power.  And the liars feel they have no other option than to hide the truth.

    Politicians lie when they are confronted with forces and circumstances bigger than themselves.

    On August 30 the Prime Minister said she would not lower the Level 4 Lockdown in Auckland while there was still undetected community transmission.

    But then on September 21, she went back on her word, and lifted the L4 lockdown while there was proven undetected community transmission.

    The Prime Minister said she would “tighten” restrictions on worksites, and then loosened them.

    Obviously the Prime Minister felt powerless to resist the pressure from business to lift the L4 Lockdown.

    The Prime Minister should have been open and honest and explained this.

    I call this sort of lying passive, or retrospective lying, and in many cases can be justified, and should be openly and honestly explained why there had to be a change in direction.

    There is another form of lying. This is a less forgiveable form, and far more dangerous form of lying, is what I call active lying. Active lying cannot be justified.

    The government and media and even the Prime Minister have blamed the surge in cases since the lifting of the L4 Lockdonwn on the minority of rule breakers.

    This is provenly not true. 

    To my knowledge not one major outbreak can be attributed to this minority or rule breakers.

    This sort of lying, or dsiinformation, is dangerous because it spreads division and leads to scapegoating, usually of a marginalised and despised and feared minority, in this case gangs and sex workers.

    The trouble with politicians and other public figures, you lie once, and you get a reputation for lieing.

    This does not engender piublic confidence in politicians, who are already considered by many, to be professionall liars, and not to be trusted.

    Retroactive or passive lying, is forgivable but needs to be explained and justified. The balance of forces can change, this needs to be communicated. If you are a political leader and you have to change policy direction, you need to take the people with you.

    Active lying to cover up for passive lying only compounds the loss of trust and is less forgiveable and more dangerous.

    A loss of trust of mainstream politicians is empowering the Far Right conspiracy theorists and is the source of suspicion and mistrust which we see manifested in the numbers at the Brian Destiny rally and the SHot Hikoi.

    I have known Hone Harawira to be mistaken, I have known Hone Harawira to change direction. But I have never known Hone Harawira to lie in the way some politicians do.

    Hone Harawira is refusing to let the Hikoi pass. Good on Harawira, he is protecting his people.

    Hone is doing the very best he can for the people of Te Tai Tokerau.
