Acts of Surrender



Take a scroll down this timeline to see the depth of the treachery perpetrated by successive Labour and National governments upon the people of New Zealand.

Then ask yourself: "When's the surrender to the tribalists going to stop - and who's going to stop it??"

LABOUR / NATIONAL > ACTS OF SURRENDER

What began under Labour has sped up under National

1974
MAORI AFFAIRS AMENDMENT ACT
* Definition of Maori changed to include people who are 99% European.

1975
TREATY OF WAITANGI ACT
* Waitangi Tribunal set up to hear historical grievances of Maori only.
* Allows "oral evidence" that claimants may invent to suit themselves.
* Ignores evidence that doesn't favour Maori.

1985
TREATY OF WAITANGI AMENDMENT ACT
* Tribunal empowered to hear claims back to 1840

1986
STATE-OWNED ENTERPRISES ACT
* Geoffrey Palmer invokes imaginary principles and inserts the line: "Nothing in this Act shall be inconsistent with the principles of the Treaty of Waitangi".
* Palmer gets Cabinet to insert the undefined principles in all future legislation.

ENVIRONMENT ACT
* Management of physical resources must have regard to principles of Treaty.

1987
ACTIVIST JUDGE ROBIN COOKE DEFINES TREATY PRINCIPLES.
* Cooke's principles say "The Treaty established a partnership".
* Cooke was wrong. As any lawyer knows, treaties have parties., not partners.
* Queen Victoria would hardly go into partnership with 600 cannibal warrior chiefs.

MAORI LANGUAGE ACT
* Maori made an official language of New Zealand.
* New Zealanders not consulted.
* (English is still not an official language of New Zealand.)

CONSERVATION ACT
* Conservation Boards must consult iwi on all management plans for fish and game.

1989
MISSING FINAL ENGLISH TREATY DRAFT FOUND.
* Then covered up by state historians.
* The draft was the document from which the Maori Tiriti was translated.
* It had been lost for 149 years, and no one knew what it said.
* Before 1989, there was only a flowery English version, very different from the Maori.
* The draft was found in the effects of Treaty-era lawyer, Henry Littlewood.
* Unlike flowery "Official" Treaty in English", the draft is a perfect match for Te Tiriti.
* Like Te Tiriti, the draft does not say the tribes owned forests and fisheries.
* It says Treaty is with "all people of New Zealand" (including settlers, not just Maori).
* Pro-Maori historian Claudia Orange was the first historian to see the draft.
* Orange's first comments were "this will be difficult politically" (at a time when the government were looking to surrender more and more of New Zealand to Maori).
* State historians still pretend the Littlewood is not the missing final draft, even though:

I) The document was dated 4 February1840, as all agreed the final draft had been.

2) It was in the handwriting of James Busby, who all agreed had penned it.

3) It was written on 1833-watermarked paper in stock in 1840.

* State historians took eleven years to verify the handwriting, and only because a citizen researcher found the acknowledgement in a National Arcives in-house newsletter.
* Orange did not even mention her discovery of the only Treaty-related document to emerge since 1840 in the updated edition of her supposedly definitive Treaty textbook.
* "Justice" Minister Geoffrey Palmer ignores Final English Draft.
* Then 4 months later publishes "Principles of Treaty of Waitangi".
* This was a fabrication - and should really be called "The Treaty of Wellington 1989".
* Palmer's imaginary principles do not derive from the Treaty of Waitangi 1840.
* The actual Treaty confers no special rights upon Maori.
* The actual Treaty mentions neither principles nor partnership - let alone a 50/50 one!
* If the actual Treaty had an overriding principle, it was equal rights for all Kiwis.
* And yet its Palmer's fake Principles that are now used when the state refers to Treaty.
* Claimant and Tribunal member Hugh Kawharu hired to redefine taonga, kawanatanga and rangatiratanga to suit Maori.
* 1820 Dictionary consultant Hongi Hika defined taonga as 'property procured by spear'.
* Kawharu redefined it to include anything Maori valued and wanted.
* Ngata defined kawanatanga as 'sovereignty'. Kawharu overruled Ngata.
* Kawharu redefined rangatiratanga from 'possession' to 'unqualified chieftainship'.
