Protect Ihumātao


This weekend Peace Action went along to Ōtaki Summer Camp and saw Pania Newton speak about the SOUL campaign to protect Ihumātao. So many young people got fired up that they set up the SOUL Solidarity Network!

Ihumātao was confiscated in 1863 to punish tangata whenua for supporting the Kīngitanga movement. Pākehā law and processes have been used to entrench this theft. This is an opportunity to recognise the wrongs of our past and present of ongoing colonisation. We’re going to demand that the Government intervene and return Ihumātao to mana whenua.

Te Whanganui-a-Tara Wellington

Come along to the Newtown Community Centre at 6pm on Tuesday, January 29 if you want to organise SOUL solidarity actions in Te Whanganui-a-Tara/Wellington! We’ll bring tea, coffee, pizza and facilitation, you bring the energy!

To help us do this important mahi, Peace Action will bring the following proposals:

  • Organising group structure
  • Decision-making process
