Latin American and Asia Pacific Solidarity Gathering 2006

"Better to die standing, than to live on your knees."

Have just had 2 inspirational days of sharing common struggle and
resistance to the colonial beast that has ravaged ( and continues) to ravage the world. Grassroots people Asia, Melanesia, Polynesia, over the South
America. Humble revolutionaries imbued with a great love & respect for their lands peoples & way of life, actively resisting.

The greed for the plunder of our resources and destruction of our
identity is similar all the world. Genocide keeps on perfecting
itself, so you get a clear picture of whats in store for us if we dont
assert our right to be and live as Maori on Maori land. NZ settler
govt just keep perfecting killing us off slowly.

Chaz was a mercurial ambassador for Tuhoe and gave a moving korero
about Mana Motuhake, and our colonial history & continuing resistance.
It was choice to tautoko bro, and we even had tutu Maori tamariki
running around Smile.It was good to be reminded that around this planet,
we the colonised, the oppressed, exploited & marginalised are the majority and the time has come for us to stand up.

In struggle & solidarity
