NOTE FROM EWR: the Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei Trust is saying the properties in question are ‘surplus to needs’ yet there are over a hundred whānau on a waiting list for housing. These homes have been boarded up & vacant for up to two years. (A familiar story throughout NZ … while the so called ‘authorities’ twiddle their thumbs & purse their lips wondering why we have 43K homeless in our land, and pretend to try and fix it? Remember the Tamaki exposé by Penny Bright? Nearly 3K homes land banked by the Nats for greedy property developers. That now dirty word. I’ve heard the same scenario in the Wellington region, people evicted & their homes boarded up, still now homeless, see below)

Land banked homes in the Wellington district … some folk evicted from state homes, boarded up for years whilst the previous occupants remain homeless

Bastion Point and the protest from the ’70s is mentioned in the video. Here is that story FYI … watch at nzonscreen
‘BASTION POINT – THE UNTOLD STORY’:
In 1977 protesters occupied Bastion Point, after the announcement of a housing development on land once belonging to Ngāti Whātua. 506 days later police and army arrived en masse to remove them. This documentary examines the rich and tragic history of Bastion Point/ Takaparawhau — including how questionable methods were used to gradually take the land from Māori, while basic amenities were withheld from those remaining. The documentary features extensive interviews with protest leader Joe Hawke, and footage from seminal documentary Bastion Point Day 507.
