Protect Pūtiki Hīkoi to Parliament!

$7,205 donated
Given by 173 generous donors in 21 days

Protect Pūtiki are organising a hīkoi to Auckland Council and parliament to present a petition to Minister David Parker and Ayesha Verrall.

Auckland

We, Protect Pūtiki are at Pūtiki Bay (Kennedy Point), Waiheke Island. We have been here for 85+ days.

We are raising funds to organise our hīkoi to parliament and present our petition to Minister for the Environment, David Parker.

Two weeks ago on Wednesday the 19th, we started a petition on ActionStation with the goal of reaching at least 10,000 signatures. We have soared to 7,000 in under two weeks and are growing fast. We know we have to act urgently, because our moana is undergoing construction and occupation by the ‘developers’ every day.

We are calling for Minister for the Environment, David Parker and Auckland Council to urgently address a breach of Te Tiriti o Waitangi regarding a resource consent granted by Auckland council in March 2017. We are asking the Minister for the Environment and Auckland Council to call the resource consent into question for the proposed marina at Kennedy Point so that we can have a voice in the consideration of the resource consent directly relevant to our ancestral moana, Tikapa (Hauraki Gulf).

This fundraising is for a hīkoi condemning colonisation spreading further onto the moana. A hīkoi to protect all of our ancestral connections, our whakapapa - the environments that we are a part of. This is a hīkoi of kotahitanga, coming together and ACTIVELY protecting natural landscapes, wāhi tapu. These are stories we can all tell.

Use of funds

Donations will be spent on things like bus hirage, transport and all Pūtiki Protectors who will walk in solidarity for the kaupapa to #Protect Pūtiki,

Update on hīkoi  26 July 2021

Posted by: Givealittle

Due to an increase in worker presence and the possibility of on-site construction at Pūtiki Bay, including piling and works around the kororā burrows, this has delayed our hīkoi significantly. We decided to stay on-site and engage in kaitiakitanga at the bay to stop works and prevent any further damage going ahead. At the same time, it has allowed us to reach almost 25,000 signatures prior to commencing our hīkoi and to grow awareness around our kaupapa. Thank you to everyone who donated to this fund, for the hīkoi. We will update you on when we will be taking our petition to Parliament as soon as we are able.

Keep fighting the good fight, f*ck these colonisers and their efforts to destroy your moana in order to make their pockets fatter.
