Kia kaha e hine ma

Letter

Re: ‘Undermining democracy', Jan 13, and ‘We want to see equity', Jan 14.

A big shout out to Josh as well as Aimee Milne, Lara Meyer and Maree Conaglen — mighty waahine toa who have publicly expressed their condemnation of and opposition to the racist petition against Maori wards driven by “Hobbie's hobos” (the Hobson's Pledge cartel) and local white supremacy supporters. Brown lives do matter and it makes a big difference that these protectors, bar Josh, are all Pakeha. They have stepped up to the challenge. Keep it up.

Let's join forces, Maori and Pakeha together, and dismantle this Trumpian scourge-like phenomena creeping into our rohe.

Kia kaha e hine ma (Forever strong)

    Kia Ora Wally,
    Your acknowledgement means a great deal. I actually feel teary!
    You are clearly a Tane toa yourself. Tena Koe Wally.

    Kia ora Wally,
    True, the only way to get to the goal is together. He waka eke noa. Hobbles Pledgers don’t seem to get that and do nothing but cause hurt and division. Thanks for your kind words, it means a lot. I only hope being loudly and actively anti-racist encourages others to do the same.
