Update part 2
Our lawyers are saying that what we need now is some momentum building in the media/public awareness. The timing of the Raahui, and the protest in Auckland, leading up to the court case is great - we really need to keep the focus on the Treaty and the status of these waters as waahi tapu, sacred waters, as that is the strongest point of law we are fighting on.
Protect Aotea is now a charitable trust!
We also really need to raise some money, if you know anyone who might be a potential donor for this cause please contact them, any work that you want to do around connecting people, raising awareness, etc would be welcome.
Essentially we are a group of individuals doing whatever we can to support the campaign. Kelly Klink and Valmaine Toki are our guides for keeping everything focussed and on-track, and to keep it on target legally and culturally. You can send any information or queries via myself and I will forward to the appropriate persons.
