To all who hold a belief in principle, I dedicate this dedicatory speech to you on this day, Friday the 24th of June 2011 on the eve of battle!
The stability of the people relies on the tikanga/moral and ethical behaviours, the kaupapa/policy agenda and their understanding of these two things by way of aronga/interpretation. They are the blueprints to what I consider to be the necessary conditions from which the fundamental make up of which the existence of a truly great people and a truly great country is possible. They provide us with a sense of direction, explaining the genesis of where we have come from, where presently are already and where are about to go. Tikanga and kaupapa give our people stability, therefore, the forfeiture of our kaupapa or tikanga to another agenda MUST be challenged vigorously! And the people’s stability MUST be defended!
Principles MUST NOT be compromised.
Wellbeing MUST NOT be compromised.
Stability MUST NOT be compromised.
Politicians in general are often swallowed by the empty, insatiable appetite of the distasteful ogre we call ‘greed’. Poisoned by the toxic views the capitalist mode places upon them and global society, combined with the feeling of the $20 bill rubbing up against the thighs of our so called ‘leaders’ becomes far too intense to ignore. Tikanga and Kaupapa that originally intended to liberate and transform the people then become victims of perversion. Perverted to the point where exploitation and concession-based talks on principle is largely ill-justified in the pursuit for monetary and material wealth.
We now live in a world where morality, principles and ethics is now saleable.
We now live in a world where the identity of a people now has a price tag.
Resources, people and environment are the subject of economic exploitation. This is the direct result of a people lost without tikanga and kaupapa. This is the direct result of a people lost in the darkness of society’s rejection or misunderstanding of what is really important.
Hone Harawira & Mana Movement
Before us is a man who refuses to break principle under the heat of societal and governmental pressure. A man committed on combating the explicitly immoral and unethical practice of comodofying the principles that prop the foundations upon which a people stand. A man who has consistently risen to the challenges that threaten our fundamental makeup and our integral wellbeing.
Hone fights for REAL progress! Much to the philosophy coined by Malcolm X in his reference to the idea of ‘progress’ when he said;
"You don't stick a knife in a man's back nine inches and then pull it out six inches and say you're making progress ..."
The people will continue to bleed even if the oppression is moderated. It stands to remain that the oppression still exists and our people, this country just doesn’t need it.
VOTE MANA AND VOTE FOR REAL PROGRESS!
VOTE MANA AND VOTE FOR REAL STABILITY & WELL BEING!
VOTE FOR HONE AND COMMIT YOURSELF TO A MAN COMMITED TO YOU AND WHAT YOU STAND FOR!
OUR PRINCIPLES ARE NOT FOR SALE!
OUR TIKANGA AND KAUPAPA ARE NOT FOR SALE!
THE PEOPLES WELLBEING CAN NOT BE BOUGHT!
VOTE MANA AND VOTE FOR LIBERATION!
