Historical Notes: This group participated in a 3 week sit-in at Parliament grounds. They lived in tents given to them by the local people and organisations particularly MOOHR (Maori Organisation On Human Rights) through Tim Poata. The central theme of the protest was "Maori control of all things Maori" which encompassed other themes like loss of land, loss of reo, etc.
