The Maori must be Looked After

The Maori must be Looked After

Titewhai Harawira made a plea for solidarity (presumably amongst both Maoris and Europeans) to fight for the retention of an existing Maori land. She suggested to the audience that the Government stop immigration until the Maori have been 'looked after'.

It does seem certain that the Maori people will be looked after, but perhaps in a different way from that which the Matakite movement would envisage as just. The arrests made at Parliament grounds may well be a definite indication of how the protest movement will be dealt with (leaving the legal issue of unlawful trespass aside).
